New Samsung Tablet Setup Process

Overview

Once you receive your Samsung Tablet you will have to go through the setup process. This article provides a step-by-step process for setting up a Samsung Tablet.

Solution

If the tablet has the Knox logo already this means that Knox was added by the seller. In the scenario that they didn't include the Knox you can get it from the Loyulty website. On the Loyulty Portal, navigate to Services > Bespeak Services and select the option Samsung Knox Configuration - Unkitting.

Step-by-step Guide

  1. Choose the language of the Kiosk. English is set to default. Click the yellow arrow button and go to the next screen.

  13. After this initial setup (within 5 minutes), the Kiosk will automatically install the Sprint default account, which is the SMSMM account (this could take up to 5 minutes). Once it is done, it will prepare and customize the Tablet based on the SMSMM Sprint account. It will lock the Tablet, similar to the previous Tablets. It will not allow people to install random applications, access the Google Play Store, or surf the Internet.

Notes

Once complete, select "Finish", and the Kiosk application should start. If not, start the application yourself. Make sure that you "Accept" approval for the Samsung Administration when the Kiosk application starts for the first time.

  1. Attempt to update the Kiosk in case there is a later version available. Then, exit the application using your unlock code.
  2. There may be a pop-up saying an install was blocked. If you see this, click 'Settings' and it will take you to a settings window, where you allow applications from unknown sources. Uncheck the box, so that it will allow further updates without having to access this screen. Then click done once it is installed.
  3. Lastly, go to settings (tablet settings, not Kiosk settings) Settings->Wifi->Advanced Settings (More) and turn Smart Network Switch on: this allows the tablet to automatically switch between 3G and WiFi, depending on the connection quality.
  4. You may also want to disconnect the WiFi network that you configure the tablet on.
  5. Final Step: Turn Off the Tablet, it will require a reboot to allow the APK to have full permissions for the licensee.

Confirmation

Once the setup process is complete, the following screen will be displayed on the Samsung Tablet.
