Tips

squiggleboldMD

Now that you know more about the basic use of your phone, here's some extra tips to help you get a bit more from it.

Using Find My Mobile

Samsung's 'Find My Mobile' website can help you find your phone if you've lost or misplaced it. It'll show it's location, and you can make the phone ring, even if it's on silent mode. If you don't think you'll be able to get your phone back, you can lock it, or wipe all of your data from it.

If you ever get locked out of it, you're also able to unlock your phone screen, so that you can use your phone again.

To activate this service, you need to sign in to a Samsung account on your phone. Go to Settings > Add account > Samsung account to sign in or create an account.

Using the Quick Settings

If you swipe down from the top edge of your phone screen, you will pull down the notification panel. At the top of this is a row of icons that can be used to quickly turn some features on or off. You will see toggles for: Wi-Fi, Location, Vibrate, Screen Rotation, and Bluetooth - all of which can be turned on or off from this menu.

Swiping across the row of icons will reveal more features you can use, and you can change which buttons appear, and in what order by going to Settings > Display > Notification Panel.

Hopefully, that should be everything you'll need to start using your phone, but if you'd like some extra help, give our Team Knowhow Experts a call here.
