IMO S - Using it


We've written this guide to help you get used to using your IMO S.

1. Making phone calls


The first thing to figure out is making calls. Everything call-related is done in the phone app, which can be found in the bottom-left of the Home screen.

Open the Phone app.


Add the number you want to call by pressing the blue icon to open the keypad, or find a contact by typing their name into the box at the top. 


With the number onscreen, press the green phone to start the call.

You can add new contacts to your phone by typing their number and pressing Create a new contact above the dialler.

2. Sending texts & picture messages (MMS)


You can send normal text messages and picture messages from the IMO S. This part of the guide shows you how to do both.

Tap the Type text message box and write your message.


When you're ready to send it, press the green arrow.

Sending attachments & picture messages (MMS)

Start by following the steps above to number four, but don't send it yet.

Find the file and tap it to attach it to your message.


Add any further text and press the green arrow to send it.

3. Sending emails


Before you can send emails, you need to have set your accounts up in the email app. If you followed our Setup guide, you're ready to go.

Add a recipient by tapping the To line. You can either type an email address or the name of a contact.


Enter a subject by pressing the line.


Tap the middle of the screen and type your message.


To send it as it is, press the right-facing arrow at the top of the screen.

4. Setting alarms


You can use the IMO S to wake you up in the morning using the alarm feature. You can set it to only go off on certain days, so you're not accidently woken up on your days off.

Open the Clock app from the main apps list.


The list of icons across the top of the screen switches between the alarm clock, world clock, timer, and stopwatch. Alarm clock should be automatically selected, but if it's not, just tap it.


Press the red + icon to create a new alarm.


Set the alarm time by moving the clock hands to the desired position.

Tap OK to save the alarm.


Press Repeat and choose the days you want the alarm to go off on.

You can also change the ringtone and vibrate options, or put a label like 'work' or 'oboe lesson'.

You can add more alarms and turn them on or off by tapping the switches next to their name. You can tell if an alarm is set by looking for an alarm clock icon in the status bar in the very top of the screen.

5. Tips


We've found a couple of handy features that make using your IMO S easier. Try them by following the steps below.

Check your battery use

You can see what apps are using the most battery by opening Settings > Battery management > Battery.

If you find your phone running out of battery a bit too early in the day, look at what's using the most to see what you can do to improve it. For example, if the screen is using a lot of battery, you can try turning the brightness down a bit. 

Monitoring your data usage

The IMO S has a built-in monitor that lets you see how much of your monlthy mobile data you've used. You can also see which apps are using the most if you're finding yourself running out towards the end of the month.

To get to it, open Settings > Data Usage then click your Network name.

Move the slider to set a warning, or tap the Set mobile limit switch to turn off mobile data at a specific point.
