Samsung Admire SCH R720 Manual User Guide for MetroPCS & Unlocked CDMA Generic Version Resume
We gave you two User Guide / User Manual (UG/UM) of Samsung Admire SCH R720 under “PDF Download Tab” but for the Read Online section, we only provided the UG for MetroPCS carrier – English version. The big differences between this two UG for MetroPCS and CDMA Generic might be occured on the section that discussing the Carrier Tools/ Features. UG MetroPCS did had, but for UG CDMA Generic didn’t.
There is also one thing that seem to be “important missing part” on UG for CDMA Generic (unlocked, we will called as UG-CG). On UG-CG, because this apparently for unlocked version that can be inserted / used by all Carrier (as long as it’s CDMA), the UM should be provide how to insert the SIM Card tutorial. But after searching the UG-CG contents, unfortunately we couldn’t find for inserting SIM guidance.
On the picture above, we gave you an image appearance of Samsung Admire for MetroPCS (the blue-black color) and for CDMA Generic (the red black color body case) with its layout front and back side panel and also its keys and parts with its description of the functions. Independently, you can read it from UG of Admire (English version) on page 18 and 19 under “Section 2: Understanding Your Phone”.
Of course because Admire is Android Smartphone, you can also get the preloaded google applications tutorial such as how you can use the Google Talk, learning to sync with your google account, Google Mail, how to use the Google Maps, downloading hundred of thousand of applications from Android Market, watching the Youtube, and more.
Learning to know how to pairing the bluetooth, syc and connect your Admire with USB cable to computer (need Samsung Kies applications), Capturing and recording video via 3.2 MP camera, Using the GPS (supports A-GPS), connect to the internet via Wi-Fi Hotspot (when your are on reachable Wi-Fi area) and more.
Specially for Hard Reset / Master Reset or sometime familiar to be called as Factory Data Reset, you can learn the tutorial how to do this by opening page 96 of UM of Admire R720. Go the Settings Menu > Touch Privacy > Factory Data Reset > Reset Phone > Erase Everything.
