Kit Guide: Caterpillar S60 - setting it up


This guide will take you through the Setup of your S60. We'll cover everything you'll need to get going, from inserting the SIM, to setting up a lock screen.

1. Box contents


Here's what you'll find in the box:   

  • Caterpillar S60
  • Mains/MicroUSB power adaptor
  • USB cable
  • Documentation pack

2. Inserting your SIM card


Your S60 uses a NanoSIM, which goes into the back of the phone, and is protected by a small watertight door. You can also increase the storage capacity by adding a MicroSD card.

S60 Insert SIM

On the back of the phone, you'll see a cover next to the camera lens, open it by sliding the orange catch towards the edge of the phone.


The NanoSIM goes into the bottom slot, with the metal contacts facing down (you'll see a diagram that shows you which way in it goes). If you have a second SIM that you'd like to use, this can be inserted into the slot behind the SD card slot. It's inserted in the same way as the first SIM.


If you have a MicroSD card, that goes into the top slot - again with the metal contacts facing down.


Close the cover, making sure that it clicks into place.

With the SIM card in, press and hold the power button on the left-hand edge of the phone to turn it on, and start setting it up.

3. Completing the Caterpillar S60 Setup Wizard


The first thing you'll see when you turn the phone on is the 'Setup Wizard'. This is a set of steps to help you get the phone ready to use. During the Setup, you might see a 'SIM Service' message. If you do, tap your network and your phone will download the settings for you.

  • 'Home' (circle):this will always take you back to the Home screen.
  • 'Recent apps' (square): shows apps you've had open recently and lets you jump between them.

4. Connecting to the Internet


You'll need to connect to the internet if you want to download apps and games, send email, or browse the web. You can connect using Wi-Fi, or mobile data and we'll show you how to do both in this section.

Connecting the Caterpillar S60 to a Wi-Fi network

S60 WiFi 1

From the Home screen, go to Apps Settings Wi-Fi.


Make sure the switch at the top is turned on - if it's not, tap it.


Pick the Wi-Fi network you want to connect to and type in the Wi-Fi password (this should be printed on your router if you're not sure what it is).


Tap Connect. If it works, you'll see the word 'Connected' under the name of your network.

Turning mobile data on or off

When you're in range of a Wi-Fi 'hotspot' (and Wi-Fi is switched on), your S60 will always try to connect, so to turn on mobile data you'll need to turn it off by going to Settings Wi-Fi, and turning the switch off.

S60 Data 1
S60 Data 2

From your Home screen, go to Settings > Data usage.


Tap the Mobile data switch to turn it on or off.

If you're still not connected, you'll need to check some other settings. We've written a guide to help you with this here.

5. Setting up new email accounts


You probably added a Gmail account during the Setup, but if you didn't, or want to add more, here’s how.

Tap Agree to give Gmail access to your account information.

Give the account a name, and type your name at the bottom.


Press Next to finish setting up the account.

If your account didn't set up automatically, you'll need to add the settings manually. If you're not sure what these are, we've written a full guide to email server settings for the most popular providers.

6. Setting up a lock screen


We always recommend adding a lock screen to your phone to help keep your information safe. There are a few different options, and we'll walk you through them here.

S60 Security 1
S60 Security 2
S60 Security 3
S60 Security 4

From your Home screen, go to Settings Security Screen lock.


Choose the type of lock you want to use:

  • Pattern: draw a pattern across a grid of dots
  • PIN: a 4-digit code
  • Password: a mix of numbers and letters

Choose whether you want to use 'Secure start-up'. Turning this on will mean that your phone asks for your security code every time you turn it on or restart it, and you won't be able to make or receive calls or messages until the code has been entered. Tap Continue when you've made your choice.
