The Android-powered Samsung Intercept smartphone hit the market for Sprint and Virgin Mobile in July 2010. To get started with the Intercept, you need to install and charge the supplied lithium-ion battery. Once charged, you’re ready to turn it on. Unlike some cell phones, the Intercept does not have a dedicated power button, which can lead to some confusion on your first attempt to start the phone.
Hold the phone so that the back is facing you, slide your fingernail in the notch between the phone and the cover and pull up to release the battery cover from the phone.
Place the charged battery in the compartment so that the "Samsung" logo is facing up and near the top of the battery compartment. Press down until the battery clicks into place.
Position the battery cover so the camera lens hole is over the camera lens and press down on the lower end of the cover to snap it closed.
Press and hold the "End" button, which is located below the screen and has a phone icon with a circle on it, until the screen lights up.
