As of February 2015, many cell phone manuals are available for free download either through the manufacturer's official website or through the provider's official website. For example, Verizon Wireless provides many free manuals, as well as the manufacturers LG USA, Samsung and Apple.
There are also many free cell phone manuals available at manual sites such as ManualsOnline.com. Verizon manuals are available on the How To portion of the website at VerizonWireless.com. To search for LG-related manuals, users can direct their browser to the Mobile Support page of LG.com/US. Many iPhone manuals are available for download on Apple's website at Apple.com, and Samsung support is available at Samsung.com. Most manuals are in pdf format, so Adobe Reader or a similar program is required.
