After new phone is unpacked, please charge it before using it for the first time.

 

Simply connect the phone to supplied charger and charge it from whatever the battery level is until the unit is fully charged (until the battery reaches 100%). 
From the time battery is fully charged (100%) the phone is ready to be used.
