How do I install or remove the battery cover and battery for my Samsung Epic™ 4G?

You must fully charge the battery before using your phone for the first time. A discharged battery recharges fully in approximately 4 hours.

  • Charging a Battery

    Your device is powered by a rechargeable Li-ion battery. The Travel Charger that is used to charge the battery is included with your device. Use only Samsung-approved batteries and chargers.

    Although you can use the phone while the battery is charging, doing so will require additional charging time.

  • Install a Battery

    Note: Make sure the battery is properly installed before switching on the phone.

    To remove the back cover and insert the battery:

    1. Grasp the device firmly and locate the cover release latch.
    2. Place your fingernail in the opening and firmly "pop" the cover off the device (similar to a soda can).
    3. Insert the battery into the opening in the back of the device, making sure the connectors align. Gently press down to secure the battery.

    4. Position the battery cover over the battery compartment and press down until you hear a click.
