Please note:
• Do not forcefully insert, twist or bend the connector into the Mobile Device. Doing so may damage the connector
• Ensure that the Mobile Device is firmly inserted into the Gear VR and the device holder is locked by sliding the switch to the lock position. If not, the Mobile Device may accidentally separate from the Gear VR and be damaged
• If sound is not emitted when inserting the Gear VR's connector into the Mobile Device, it is an indication that the Gear VR is not recognising the Mobile Device. Unlock the Mobile Device's screen before using the Gear VR
