1) where did you buy the device?
2) do you have a carrier where you use the device with?
3) do you have a usb cable?
4) did you google for a usermanual on the 8310?

Okay. Since you stated and used quotation marks around "Brand New Boxed", I'm guessing ebay or something like it. Good luck. Your phone should have come with
If you don't have one of these, I would request one from the person/company that you bought it from. If you are missing more than one, I would return the phone becuase it likely is not new and you have been scammed.
These carriers also sell the phones "brand new boxed" with all accessories, accountability and warranties.

While you will need a carrier you do not HAVE to buy their contract. You can go on a month by month basis, and not sign on for two years or whatever. It will cost you more to do it with no contract, but I have gone that route
with my carrier for about 10 years now.
Even if you walk into their store and have no account with them, I'm sure you could get accessories to fit your phone. I haven't tried this, but I think they would check out your phone to see if it was working right before they gave you service. Without a contract, the carrier does charge more for any phone you buy from them.
I've always used ATT because I'm fairly old fashioned and to me they've always been "the phone company."
Don't have wide experience with multiple carriers.
Good luck with your phone. It is a good product, I love mine. Leave feedback on eBay about the seller if they gave you a shoddy deal.
