RIGHT OUT OF THE box, the Samsung Galaxy S4 is set up for you and ready to go. But what if you want to change the way it notifies you when there’s a call, fine-tune the way its location services work, or alter its music setup? You turn to this chapter, which describes all its settings and explains what they do for you. To get to the Settings screen, press the Menu key when you’re on the Home screen or a pane, and then tap Settings. You’ll find four tabs across the top, Connections, My Device, Accounts, and More. Tap the appropriate tab, scroll to the setting you want to change, and tap it. Then head to the appropriate section of this chapter for the full description and advice.
