How to set up your ROKiT device.
- Select a language
- Insert the SIM card and enter your PIN
- Insert your battery (IO 3D only)
- Select a Wi-Fi network
- Transfer from another device
- Set up/login to Google account (optional)
- Protect your phone
- Set up notifications
- Set up Google Assistant
- Insert your microSD card
- Download apps from the Google Play Store
- Install software and Android updates
Once you've switched on the phone on, you’ll arrive at a welcome screen where you will be prompted to choose a language. Tapping on the default language opens a list of all those available on the system. Select your preferred language from the list and tap the arrow to continue. This will set the language of the system and its menus, but you can choose to add extra languages to your keyboard later if you're multilingual.
Insert the SIM card and enter your PIN
You will be asked to insert a SIM card. You can actually skip this, but assuming you actually want to use this device as a phone, it's an important step.
IO Pro 3D
Insert the pin provided in the travel case to open the SIM tray
Compatible Hybrid dual Nano SIM or micro SD
Remove the battery cover gently using the notch on the bottom right of the device
Compatible dual Nano SIM & micro SD
After this step, you'll be prompted to select whether you want to start as a new user or import data from your previous device.
Insert your battery (IO 3D only)
Remove the battery cover gently as detailed above and then line up the metallic teeth on the device with the metallic pins on the battery.
If you find yourself within range of a wireless network, you can now connect to it. Simply select your network from the list and enter the password if required. Then tap "Connect". We suggest connecting to Wi-Fi at this stage so you can download updates and new apps as soon as possible.
At this point, you will be asked if you wish to copy your data from another Android device.
If you want to transfer from your old phone backups, it'll then prompt you to open the Google app on your old phone and either ask Assistant "Ok Google, set up my device" or go to Settings > Google > Set up nearby device. Alternatively, you can sign in with your Google account to back up from the cloud, which is the next step. Otherwise, select to set up as "new user"
Login to Google account (optional)
The next step is to set up or log into an account in order to use your smartphone with Google's apps and services, such as Gmail or the Play Store.
If you don't already have a Google account, but would like to set one up, just follow the steps to choose a username and create a password. You don't need to have a Google account to use the phone, but you will need one in order to use all of its functions, including installing apps from the Play Store. To get the best out of your new Android phone, you really should have a Google account.
Google will also ask which services you would like to opt-into. This includes backing up your device, which is recommended in case anything should happen to your device. The others you can assess on a case-by-case basis. None of these are essential, and they can be switched on or off at any time.
If you have an existing email address which you wish to sync with your Android phone, this is where you can add it. As with almost all of the steps in this list, this can be done at a later date.
Next, you will be asked if you want to secure your device. We strongly recommend this. Should you lose your device, this security measure is a key step in preventing unwanted access to your device. This can be done with face recognition for phones that support it, fingerprint recognition or with a simple PIN (distinct from the one for your SIM).
Set up how your device displays content when your phone is locked. You have three options:
Show all notification content means that, when your device is locked, if you receive a message, for example, this message will be displayed on your lock screen.
Hide sensitive notification content will show some notification information, like that you have received a message, but will hide the content of the message.
Don’t show notifications at all means you won’t see any notifications on your lock screen at all, but these will still be found in your device's notification shade.
The next step that you might see is an invitation to use Google's clever assistant. You'll be prompted to repeat certain phrases so that assistant can recognise your voice, which it should do so promptly if you've already set up Voice Match on another device.
The last thing to do is to insert a micro SD card, if you have one. This will provide extra storage space for your device to allow you to save more files. If you don't have a micro SD card, consider buying one to save space on your phone's internal storage. You may not need the extra storage space at first. But, once you start downloading apps, getting large software updates, and taking pictures and video, you may find yourself needing more space.
The initial setup of the smartphone is now complete.
Download apps from the Google Play Store (optional)
For an overview of the apps that have already been installed on your device, have a look at the app drawer. The app drawer is a list of icons for all the apps on your phone. For more information on the app drawer, see this article. Installing apps is a simple process. Just open the Google Play Store app, browse for apps that interest you then tap download.
Install software and Android updates
When your Android is turned on for the first time, it might not be running the latest version of the software available. To check to see if an update is available, simply go into the settings of your device > System > Software Update.
