Note: Make sure the battery is properly installed before switching on the phone.
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
To remove the back cover and insert the battery:
- Grasp the device firmly and locate the cover release latch.
- Place your fingernail in the opening and firmly "pop" the cover off the device (similar to a soda can).
- Insert the battery into the opening in the back of the device, making sure the connectors align. Gently press down to secure the battery.
- Position the battery cover over the battery compartment and press down until you hear a click.
