USB Cradle
•
Your Pocket PC Phone comes with a USB cradle. This allows
you to recharge your Pocket PC Phone, as well as synchronize
information between your Pocket PC and a PC using
ActiveSync.
•
When you insert the device into the USB cradle, make sure that
the connector on the cradle is inserted into the port on the
bottom of the device. Data cannot be transferred if the
connection is not made.
•
To synchronize, the USB Cradle must be plugged into an
available USB port on your PC.
Battery Life
Your Pocket PC Phone contains a rechargeable Lithium polymer battery, which is housed permanently in your device.
After years of continual use and recharging, the battery will become unusable and should be changed through a
service center. While you are using your device the amount of power consumed depends on whether you are talking
on the phone, using the PDA functions or if the device is on standby. The estimates for battery life – talk-time: up to 4
hours, PDA: 15-16 hours and standby: 145 hrs – are based on you only using these individual functions. If you will be
continually interchanging between these features and functions, the estimates will vary.
YOUR POCKET PC CONTAINS A LITHIUM POLYMER BATTERY PACK. THERE IS
A RISK OF FIRE AND BURNS IF THE BATTERY PACK IS HANDLED IMPROPERLY.
DO NOT DISASSEMBLE, CRUSH, PUNCTURE, SHORT EXTERNAL CONTACTS,
OR DISPOSE OF IN FIRE OR WATER. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO OPEN OR SERVICE
THE BATTERY PACK. REPLACE ONLY WITH THE BATTERY PACK DESIGNATED
FOR THIS PRODUCT. DISPOSE OF BATTERIES PROPERLY.
Recharging the Battery
It is extremely important that you remember to charge your battery. Your device does not have a hard drive - all your
data and any new programs you install are stored in RAM. In the event that the battery loses all its power, the data and
new programs mentioned above will be erased – only the default programs installed when you bought the device will
remain. You can recharge your device in the following ways:
11
•
Place your Pocket PC Phone in the
cradle and then connect the cradle
to an external power source. The
first time you use it, charge for three
to four hours. Then, place it in the
cradle for a short time each day to
recharge it to full capacity.
•
You can plug the AC adapter into the
optional USB/Serial cable head and
then connect your Pocket PC Phone
directly to an external power source.
•
You can plug the AC adapter into the
optional DC Converter and then
connect your Pocket PC Phone
directly to an external power source.

When Your Battery Is Low
Your device has only one battery. However, a portion of that battery is saved as back-up. If the battery drains lower,
your Pocket PC Phone displays a warning message. If this occurs, save any unsaved data you are working on,
perform a synchronization with your PC, then turn off your Pocket PC Phone. Don’t try to restart your Pocket PC
Phone until you have connected to external power. If your Pocket PC Phone does shut down, the back-up portion of
your battery will protect your data for about 72 hours.
Note:
Charge the battery in an environment between 41°F - 95°F (5°C and 35°C). Temperatures outside this
range may pause the charging process.
When charging the battery for the first time, fully charge the battery. If the battery is not fully charged, the
remaining battery power will not be accurately displayed.
Maximizing the Battery Operating Time
•
•
•
•
•
Whenever possible, use the device with the AC Adapter – especially when it is connected to your computer.
Select the short powered-off time in the setting menu. This will shorten the time the unit will remain on if not
used.
Turn off the front light.
Set the screen brightness to power savings mode (front light off) or shorten the front light turn-off time.
For optimal performance use in an environment between 59°F - 77°F (15°C and 25°C). Anything outside this
temperature range may decrease the operating time.
Optional Accessories
A) SD and MMC Cards
Your device has an expansion slot compatible with a range of SD and MMC Memory cards, which are primarily used
to backup or transfer files and data.
To insert or remove a memory card:
1. Push the memory card into slot (see above) until it
clicks into place. (The card is secure when it is not
protruding from the base).
2. To remove the card, push it in and then release, letting
the card spring out.
When you receive your device there will be a piece of
plastic in the slot, remove using the same method
described in “2” above.

desktop without the cradle. The DC converter at the
head of the cable, combined with an AC adapter, also
allows you to recharge your device.

Chapter 3: About Your Pocket PC Phone
Resetting the Pocket PC Phone and Clearing Memory
You can perform a soft reset or a hard reset – a soft reset restarts your device and a hard reset switches the battery off.
With a soft reset, some data may be lost in the programs that were open when the reset was performed. However, by
performing a hard reset, all the data and new programs that you have added will be erased and the device will be
restored to its factory setting – i.e. only programs installed at the factory will remain. With this in mind, it is important
not to think about a hard reset as you would restarting, shutting down or even improperly switching off your desktop,
but rather like a complete crash that requires you to erase your OS. Therefore, it is extremely important that you
regularly back up data on your device to a SD card in the event you have to perform a hard reset.
Performing a soft reset:
If your Pocket PC Phone responds slowly, stops responding or freezes, try performing a soft reset. A soft reset causes
the Pocket PC Phone to restart and re-adjust memory allocation. Unsaved data in open windows may be lost.
•
Use the stylus to press and hold the Reset button. (For details on finding soft reset, see, “Chapter 2, Bottom Edge
Features.”)
Performing a hard reset:
A hard device reset clears memory, deletes all data and restores the Pocket PC Phone to
its default settings. Programs installed at the factory remain, while data you have created
and programs you have installed are erased.
15
1.
Unscrew the stylus and use the smaller point of
the top-half.
2.
Simultaneously press the battery switch and hold
down the power switch to turn it off. Repeat to turn
it back on.
Backing up Files
Because any new programs or data are stored in RAM, and therefore will be lost if you have to perform a hard reset or
your device loses all power for any other reason, it is absolutely paramount that you backup files to your computer, a
memory card or Flash ROM. When you are at your desktop you can synchronize with your computer to backup files,
however, if you are away from home and unable to access your desktop, you will need to backup files to an SD or
MMC card or Flash ROM. In the former case, you can backup individual files in Word or Excel or all files in SD backup.
In the latter case, through the program Permanent Save, it is possible to backup and then restore Contacts, Calendar,
Internet and E-mail Settings.
To save Word or Excel files to a memory card:
1. In application programs (e.g. Pocket Word or Excel), press
Tools, Options.
2. Tap the drop down menu box under Save To and select Storage
Card.
To backup or restore your system using SD Backup:
1. Push the memory card into slot (see above) until it clicks into
place. The card is secure when it is not protruding from the
base.
2. Tap
tab.
, Programs, SD Backup then the Backup or Restore
3. If you have inserted the SD card properly it will appear next to
Target.
4. Make sure there are no application programs running in the
background, then tap Start.
16
To backup to Flash ROM:
1. Tap
, Settings, System and then Permanent Save.
2. To backup Contacts or Calendar tap the PIM tab, and then
check one or both of the boxes.
When you select to backup Contacts and Appointments,
your device will automatically backup newly added contacts
and appointments. This will not happen for connections: if
you add another connection you will need to back it up
manually.
To restore from Flash ROM:
1.
Tap
, Settings, System and then Permanent Save.
2. To restore Contacts or Calendar tap the PIM tab, and then
check one or both of the boxes.
17
Screen Tapping, Calibration and Re-calibration
When you first startup your Pocket PC Phone, you will be asked to calibrate the screen by tapping the center of a
cross with your stylus as it moves around the screen. This process ensures that when you tap the screen with your
stylus the item tapped is activated. If, however, when you are using your Pocket PC Phone, you discover tapping an
item doesn’t bring up the appropriate response, it means your Pocket PC Phone has lost calibration.
To recalibrate the screen:
1.
Tap Settings, System and then Screen.
2.
As described above, tap the center of the cross to with your
stylus as it moves around the screen.

top line so that they are not confused with the word
above. Write periods and commas above the line.
3.
For better recognition, try increasing the zoom level to
300% using the Tools menu.
4.
Write the letters of a word closely and leave big gaps
between words so that the device can easily tell where

E-mail messages in subfolders must be selected in ActiveSync on your PC in order to be transferred.
•
Connecting Directly to an E-mail Server
In addition to synchronizing e-mail messages with your PC, you can send and receive e-mail messages by
connecting to an e-mail server using a modem or network card connected to your device. You’ll need to set up a
remote connection to a network or an ISP, and a connection to your e-mail server.
When you connect to the e-mail server:
• New messages are downloaded to the device Inbox folder
• Messages in the device Outbox folder are sent
• Deleted messages are removed from the device Inbox folder.

Managing Messages and Folders
Messages are displayed in one of five folders: Inbox, Deleted Items, Drafts, Outbox and Sent Items. The Deleted
Items folder contains messages that have been deleted on the device. The behavior of the Deleted and Sent Items
folders depends on the options you have chosen. In the message list, tap Tools then Options. On the Message tab,
select your options.
To create new folders, tap Tools then Manage Folders. For all service except ActiveSync®, you can access folder
options by tapping Tools then Manage Folders. To move a message to another folder, tap and hold the message and
then tap Move to on the pop-up menu.

Folder behavior with a direct connection to an e-mail server
The behavior of the folders you create depends on whether you are using ActiveSync, SMS, POP3, or IMAP4.
1. If you use ActiveSync, e-mail messages in the Inbox folder in Outlook will automatically be synchronized with
your device. You can select to synchronize additional folders by designating them for ActiveSync. The folders you
created and the messages you moved will then be mirrored on the server. For example, if you move two
messages from the Inbox folder to a folder named ‘Family’, and you have designated ‘Family’ for synchronization,
the server creates a copy of the ‘Family’ folder and copies the messages into that folder. You can then read the
messages while away from your PC.
2. If you use SMS, messages are stored in the Inbox folder of the SMS category.
3. If you use POP3 and you move e-mail messages to a folder you created, the link is broken between the
messages on the device and their copies on the mail server. The next time you connect, the mail server will see
that the messages are missing from the device Inbox and delete them from the server. This prevents you from
having duplicate copies of a message, but it also means that you will no longer have access to messages that you
move to folders created from anywhere except the device.
4. If you use IMAP4, the folders you created and the e-mail messages you moved are mirrored on the server.
Therefore, messages are available to you anytime you connect to your mail server, whether it is from your device
or PC. This synchronization of folders occurs whenever you connect to your mail server; create new folders, or
rename/delete folders when connected.
Transferring Items Using Infrared
Using infrared (IR), you can send and receive information, such as contacts and appointments, between two devices.

Chapter 7 : Microsoft ActiveSync
Using Microsoft ActiveSync, you can synchronize the information on your PC with the information on your device.
Synchronization compares the data on your device with your PC and updates both with the most recent information.
For example:
•
•
Keep Pocket Outlook data up-to-date by synchronizing your device with Microsoft Outlook data on your PC.
Synchronize Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel files between your device and PC. Your files are automatically
converted to the correct format
By default, ActiveSync does not automatically synchronize all types of
information. Use ActiveSync options to turn synchronization on and off
for specific information types.
With ActiveSync, you can also:
•
•
•
•
Back up and restore your device data.
Copy (rather than synchronize) files between your device and PC.
Control when synchronization occurs by selecting a synchronization mode. For example, you can synchronize
continually while connected to your PC or only when you choose the synchronize command.
Select which information types are synchronized and control how much data is synchronized. For example, you
can choose how many weeks of past appointments you want synchronized.
After installation is complete, the ActiveSync® Setup Wizard will:
1. Help connect your device to your computer.
2. Set up a partnership to synchronize information between the two devices.
3. Customize the synchronization settings.
Synchronization automatically begins when you finish using the Wizard. After this initial synchronization, view your
device’s Calendar, Contacts and Tasks. Everything stored in Microsoft® Outlook® on your computer should now be
on your device. Disconnect the device from your computer and you’re ready to go.
To initiate ActiveSync® on your device, tap
synchronize remotely from your device
, then ActiveSync. Note that if you have a wireless LAN card, you can

Access, Favorites and AvantGo channels. Files is a folder specially-created on your desktop in My Documents
into which you must place all the files - Word, Excel etc - you wish to synchronize.
Synchronizing files:
1. To create a new folder, select Files in ActiveSync, then OK.
2. Use Windows Explorer on your desktop to find this folder – usually called My Documents pre-fixed by the name
you gave to your connection – then copy files you want to synchronize into this folder.
3. Tap Synchronize in ActiveSync.
For more information about ActiveSync on your device, switch to ActiveSync, tap

Chapter 8: Microsoft Pocket Outlook
Microsoft® Pocket Outlook® includes Calendars, Contacts, Tasks, Inbox and Notes which can be used individually or
together. For example, e-mail addresses stored in Contacts can be used to address e-mail messages in Inbox.
ActiveSync® synchronizes information in Microsoft® Outlook® or Microsoft® Exchange on your computer with your
device, comparing changes made on both and updating each of them with the latest information. For information on
using ActiveSync®, see ActiveSync® Help on the computer.
You can switch to any of these programs by tapping them on the

Appendix A: Troubleshooting
Reset the Pocket PC Phone and Clear Memory
You can perform a soft reset or a hard reset, depending on the situation: a hard reset, in the sense that you will lose all
data and any software you have installed yourself, is similar to reinstalling your OS on your PC; a soft reset is similar
to restarting your desktop.
If your Pocket PC Phone responds slowly, stops responding or freezes, try performing a sot reset. This causes the
Pocket PC Phone to restart and re-adjust memory allocation. Unsaved data in open windows may be lost.
Performing a soft reset:
•
Use the stylus to press and hold the Reset button for about two seconds. (For details on finding the soft reset
button, see, “Chapter 2, Bottom Edge Features.”)
Performing a hard reset:
Warning: Clearing memory deletes all data and restores the Pocket PC Phone to its default settings. Programs
installed at the factory remain, while data you have created and programs you have installed are erased.
1. Unscrew the stylus and use the smaller point of the top-half.
2. Press the battery switch and hold down the power button to
turn it off. Repeat to turn it back on.
Use ActiveSync to keep a backup of your Pocket PC Phone data so that if you need to clear
memory, you can restore the data on your Pocket PC Phone. For more information, see
ActiveSync Help.

SAR Information
Specific Absorption Rate
THIS MODEL PHONE MEETS THE GOVERNMENT’S REQUIREMENTS FOR
EXPOSURE TO RADIO WAVES.
Your wireless phone is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed and manufactured not to exceed the
emission limits for exposure to radiofrequency (RF) energy set by the Federal Communications Commission of the
U.S. Government. These limits are part of comprehensive guidelines and establish permitted levels of RF energy
for the general population. The guidelines are based on standards that were developed by independent scientific
organizations through periodic and thorough evaluation of scientific studies. The standards include a substantial
safety margin designed to assure the safety of all persons, regardless of age and health. The exposure standard
for wireless mobile phones employs a unit of measurement known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The
SAR limit set by the FCC is 1.6 W/kg.* Tests for SAR are conducted with the phone transmitting at its highest
certified power level in all tested frequency bands. Although the SAR is determined at the highest certified power
level, the actual SAR level of the phone while operating can be well below the maximum value. This is because the
phone is designed to operate at multiple power levels so as to use only the power required to reach the
network. In general, the closer you are to a wireless base station antenna, the lower the power output.
Before a phone model is available for sale to the public, it must be tested and certified to the FCC that it does not
exceed the limit established by the government-adopted requirement for safe exposure. The tests are performed in
positions and locations (e.g., worn on the body) as required by the FCC for each model. The highest SAR value for
this model phone tested when being worn on the body, as described in this user guide, is 0.56W/kg. (Body-worn
measurements differ among phone models, depending upon available accessories and FCC requirements). While
there may be differences between the SAR levels of various phones and at various positions, they all meet the
government requirement for safe exposure.The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this model
