SX66 User Manual
Tips on efficient operation
•
Extend your antenna fully (if applicable).
•
Do not touch the antenna unnecessarily when the phone is in use. Contact with the antenna
affects call quality and may cause the phone to operate at a higher power level than otherwise
needed.
Driving
Laws pertaining to the use of mobile phones while driving vary significantly from state to state
and sometimes even from locality to locality within states. For example, some areas may allow
persons to use their mobile phones only if they employ a hands-free device, and some areas may
prohibit the use of cell phones entirely. Accordingly, Siemens recommends that persons check
the laws for the areas in which they drive or will be driving. For areas where the use of mobile
phones while driving is permitted, Siemens encourages persons to use their phones responsibly
and to employ hands-free devices. Also, if using your phone while driving, please:
•
Give full attention to driving – driving safely is your first responsibility;
•
Use hands-free operation;
•
Pull off the road and park before making or answering a call, if driving conditions so require.
For vehicles equipped with air bags
An air bag inflates with great force. DO NOT place objects, including either installed or portable
wireless equipment, in the area over the air bag or in the air bag deployment area. If in-vehicle
wireless equipment is improperly installed and the air bag inflates, serious injury could result.
Electronic devices
Most modern electronic equipment is shielded from radio frequency (RF) signals. However, certain
electronic equipment may not be shielded against the RF signals from your wireless phone.
Pacemakers
The Health Industry Manufacturers‘ Association recommends that a minimum separation of
6 inches (21 cm) be maintained between a handheld wireless phone and a pacemaker to avoid
potential interference with the pacemaker. These recommendations are consistent with the independent research by and recommendations of Wireless Technology Research.
Persons with pacemakers:
•
should ALWAYS keep the phone more than six inches from their pacemaker when the phone is
turned ON;
SX66 User Manual
15
•
should not carry the phone in a breast pocket;
•
should use the ear opposite the pacemaker to minimize the potential for interference;
•
should turn the phone OFF immediately if there is any reason to suspect that interference is
taking place.
Hearing aids
Some digital wireless phones may interfere with some hearing aids. In the event of such interference, you may want to consult your service provider or your hearing aid manufacturer to discuss
alternatives.
Other medical devices
If you use any other personal medical devices, consult the manufacturers of your devices to
determine if they are adequately shielded from external RF energy. Your physician may be able
to assist you in obtaining this information.
Turn your phone OFF in health care facilities when any regulations posted in these areas instruct
you to do so. Hospitals or health care facilities may be using equipment that could be sensitive
to external RF energy.
Vehicles
RF signals may affect improperly installed or inadequately shielded electronic systems in motor
vehicles. Check with the manufacturer or its representative regarding your vehicle. You should
also consult the manufacturer of any equipment that has been added to your vehicle.
Posted facilities
Turn your phone OFF in any facility where posted notices so require.
Airplanes
FCC and Airline Regulations prohibit using your phone while in the air. Turn your phone OFF
when requested by the airline.
Check and comply with the policy of your airline regarding the use of your phone while the
airplane is on the ground.

SX66 User Manual
Potentially explosive atmospheres
Turn your phone OFF when in any area with a potentially explosive atmosphere and obey all
signs and instructions. Sparks in such areas could cause an explosion or fire resulting in bodily
injury or even death.
Areas with a potentially explosive atmosphere are often but not always clearly marked. They
include: fueling areas such as gasoline stations; below deck on boats; fuel or chemical transfer
or storage facilities; vehicles using liquefied petroleum gas (such as propane or butane); areas
where the air contains chemicals or particles, such as grain, dust or metal powders; and any
other area where you would normally be advised to turn off your vehicle engine.
Emergency calls (SOS)
Your wireless phone can be used to make emergency calls. You can make an emergency call
from the main display screen. Enter the local emergency number such as 911 and then press
the Call key. This phone, like any wireless phone, operates using radio signals, wireless and
landline networks, and user-programmed functions. Because of this, connections in all conditions cannot be guaranteed. Therefore, you should never rely solely on any wireless phone for
essential communications (for example, medical emergencies). Remember - to make or receive
any calls, the phone must be switched on and be used in a service area that has adequate signal
strength. Emergency calls might not be possible on all wireless phone networks or when certain
network services or phone features are in use. Check with local service providers regarding
their network features.
Always make certain that your phone is properly charged before attempting any emergency
calls. If you allow your battery to discharge, you will be unable to receive or make calls, including emergency calls. You must then wait a few minutes after the charging begins to place any
emergency calls.
When making an emergency call, remember to give all of the necessary information as accurately
as possible. Remember that your wireless phone might be the only means of communication
at the scene of an accident, therefore you should not terminate the call until given permission
to do so.
Batteries and Chargers
Only use original Siemens batteries (100% mercury-free) and charging devices. Use of nonSiemens batteries and/or charging devices may cause explosion resulting in serious injury
and/or property damage. Use original Siemens accessories in order to avoid possible injury and
property damage and to ensure compliance with applicable laws and regulations. Improper use
invalidates the warranty.

Quality
Battery quality statement
The capacity of your cellular phone battery will be reduced every time it is charged/discharged.
Storage at excessively high or low temperatures will also result in a gradual capacity loss. As
a result, the operating time of your cellular phone may be considerably reduced, even after a
full recharge of the battery.
Regardless of this, the battery has been designed and manufactured so that it can be recharged
and used for six months after the purchase of your cell phone. After six months, if the battery is
clearly suffering from loss of performance, we recommend that you replace it. Please buy only
Siemens original batteries.
Display quality statement
For technological reasons, some small dots in other colors may appear in the display in rare
cases. Please remember that if some dots appear brighter or darker in the display, this generally
does not mean that a fault has occurred.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Center
for Devices and Radiological Health Consumer Update
on Mobile Phones
FDA has been receiving inquiries about the safety of mobile phones, including cellular phones and PCS phones. The following summarizes what is know – and what remains unknown – about whether these products can pose a hazard to health, and what
can be done to minimize any potential risk. This information may be used to respond
to questions.
Why the concern?
Mobile phones emit low levels of radio frequency energy (i.e., radio frequency radiation) in the
microwave range while being used. They also emit very low levels of radio frequency energy (RF),
considered non-significant, when in the stand-by mode. It is well known that high levels of RF can
produce biological damage through heating effects (this is how your microwave oven is able to
cook food). However, it is not known whether, to what extent, or through what mechanism, lower
levels of RF might cause adverse health effects as well. Although some research has been done
20
SX66 User Manual
to address these questions, no clear picture of the biological effects of this type of radiation has
emerged to date. Thus, the available science does not allow us to conclude that mobile phones
are absolutely safe, or that they are unsafe. However, the available scientific evidence does not
demonstrate adverse health effects associated with the use of mobile phones.
What kinds of phones are in question?
Questions have been raised about hand-held mobile phones, the kind that have a built-in antenna
that is positioned close to the user’s head during normal telephone conversation. These types
of mobile phones are of concern because of the short distance between the phone’s antenna
– the primary source of the RF – and the person’s head. The exposure to RF from mobile phones
in which the antenna is located at greater distances from the user (on the outside of a car, for
example) is drastically lower than that from hand-held phones, because a person’s RF exposure
decreases rapidly with distance from the source. The safety of so-called “cordless phones”, which
have a base unit connected to the telephone wiring in a house and which operate at far lower
power levels and frequencies, has not been questioned.
How much evidence is there that hand-held mobile
phones might be harmful?
Briefly, there is not enough evidence to know for sure, either way; however, research efforts are
on-going. The existing scientific evidence is conflicting and many of the studies that have been
done to date have suffered from flaws in their research methods. Animal experiments investigating
the effects of RF exposures characteristic of mobile phones have yielded conflicting results. A
few animal studies, however, have suggested that low levels of RF could accelerate the development of cancer in laboratory animals. In one study, mice genetically altered to be predisposed
to developing one type of cancer developed more than twice as many such cancers when they
were exposed to RF energy compared to controls. There is much uncertainty among scientists
about whether results obtained from animal studies apply to the use of mobile phones. First, it
is uncertain how to apply the results obtained in rats and mice to humans. Second, many of the
studies showed increased tumor development used animals that had already been treated with
cancer-causing chemicals, and other studies exposed the animals to the RF virtually continuously
– up to 22 hours per day.
For the past five years in the United States, the mobile phone industry has supported research
into the safety of mobile phones. This research has resulted in two findings in particular that
merit additional study:
1. In a hospital-based, case-control study, researchers looked for an association between mobile
phone use and either glioma (a type of brain cancer) or acoustic neuroma (a benign tumor of
the nerve sheath). No statistically significant association was found between mobile phone use
and acoustic neuroma. There was also no association between mobile phone use and gliomas
when all types of gliomas were considered together. It should be noted that the average length
of mobile phone exposure in this study was less than three years.
SX66 User Manual
21
When 20 types of glioma were considered separately, however, an association was found between
mobile phone use and one rare type of glioma, neuroepithelliomatous tumors. It is possible with
multiple comparisons of the same sample that this association occurred by chance. Moreover,
the risk did not increase with how often the mobile phone was used, or the length of the calls. In
fact, the risk actually decreased with cumulative hours of mobile phone use. Most cancer causing
agents increase risk with increased exposure. An ongoing study of brain cancers by the National
Cancer Institute is expected to bear on the accuracy and repeatability of these results.1
2. Researchers conducted a large battery of laboratory tests to assess the effects of exposure to
mobile phone RF on genetic material. These included tests for several kinds of abnormalities,
including mutations, chromosomal aberrations, DNA strand breaks, and structural changes in
the genetic material of blood cells called lymphocytes. None of the tests showed any effect of the
RF except for the micronucleus assay, which detects structural effects on the genetic material.
The cells in this assay showed changes after exposure to simulated cell phone radiation, but
only after 24 hours of exposure. It is possible that exposing the test cells to radiation for this
long resulted in heating. Since this assay is known to be sensitive to heating, heat alone could
have caused the abnormalities to occur. The data already in the literature on the response of the
micronucleus assay to RF are conflicting. Thus follow-up research is necessary. 2
FDA is currently working with government, industry, and academic groups to ensure the proper
follow-up to these industry-funded research findings. Collaboration with the Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association (CTIA) in particular is expected to lead to FDA providing research recommendations and scientific oversight of new CTIA-funded research based on such
recommendations.
Two other studies of interest have been reported recently in the literature:
•
Two groups of 18 people were exposed to simulated mobile phone signals under laboratory
conditions while they performed cognitive function tests. There were no changes in the subjects’
ability to recall words, numbers, or pictures, or in their spatial memory, but they were able to
make choices more quickly in one visual test when they were exposed to simulated mobile phone
signals. This was the only change noted among more than 20 variables compared.3
•
In a study of 209 brain tumor cases and 425 matched controls, there was no increased risk
of brain tumors associated with mobile phone use. When tumors did exist in certain locations,
however, they were more likely to be on the side of the head where the mobile phone was used.
Because this occurred in only a small number of cases, the increased likelihood was too small
to be statistically significant.4
In summary, we do not have enough information at this point to assure the public that there
are, or are not, any low incident health problems associated with use of mobile phones. FDA
continues to work with all parties, including other federal agencies and industry, to assure that
research is undertaken to provide the necessary answers to the outstanding questions about
the safety of mobile phones.

What is known about cases of human cancer that have
been reported in users of hand-held mobile phones?
Some people who have used mobile phones have been diagnosed with brain cancer. But it is
important to understand that this type of cancer also occurs among people who have not used
mobile phones. In fact, brain cancer occurs in the U.S. population at a rate of about 6 new cases
per 100,000 people each year. At that rate, assuming 80 million users of mobile phones (a number
increasing at a rate of about 1 million per month), about 4800 cases of brain cancer would be
expected each year among those 80 million people, whether or not they used their phones. Thus
it is not possible to tell whether any individual’s cancer arose because of the phone, or whether
it would have happened anyway. A key question is whether the risk of getting a particular form of
cancer is greater among people who use mobile phones than among the rest of the population.
One way to answer that question is to compare the usage of mobile phones among people with
brain cancer with the use of mobile phones among appropriately matched people without brain
cancer. This is called a case-control study. The current case-control study of brain cancers by
the National Cancer Institute, as well as the follow-up research to be sponsored by industry, will
begin to generate this type of information.
What is FDA’s role concerning the safety of mobile phones?
Under the law, FDA does not review the safety of radiation emitting consumer products such as
mobile phones before marketing, as it does with new drugs or medical devices. However, the
agency has authority to take action if mobile phones are shown to emit radiation at a level that
is hazardous to the user. In such a case, FDA could require the manufacturers of mobile phones
to notify users of the health hazard and to repair, replace or recall the phones so that the hazard
no longer exists.
Although the existing scientific data do not justify FDA regulatory actions at this time, FDA has
urged the mobile phone industry to take a number of steps to assure public safety. The agency
has recommended that the industry:
•
Support needed research into possible biological effects of RF of the type emitted by mobile
phones;
•
Design mobile phones in a way that minimizes any RF exposure to the user that is not necessary
for device function; and
•
Cooperate in providing mobile phone users with the best possible information on what is known
about possible effects of mobile phone use on human health.
At the same time, FDA belongs to an interagency working group of the federal agencies that
have responsibility for different aspects of mobile phone safety to ensure a coordinated effort at
the federal level. These agencies are:
•
National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health
•
Environmental Protection Agency
SX66 User Manual
•
Federal Communications Commission
•
Occupational Health and Safety Administration
•
National Telecommunications and Information Administration
23
The National Institutes of Health also participates in this group.
In the absence of conclusive information about any
possible risk, what can concerned individuals do?
If there is a risk from these products – and at this point we do not know that there is – it is probably
very small. But if people are concerned about avoiding even potential risks, there are simple steps
they can take to do so. For example, time is a key factor in how much exposure a person receives.
Those persons who spend long periods of time on their hand-held mobile phones could consider
holding lengthy conversations on conventional phones and reserving the hand-held models for
shorter conversations or for situations when other types of phones are not available.
People who must conduct extended conversations in their cars every day could switch to a type
of mobile phone that places more distance between their bodies and the source of the RF, since
the exposure level drops off dramatically with distance. For example, they could switch to:
•
a mobile phone in which the antenna is located outside the vehicle,
•
a hand-held phone with a built-in antenna connected to a different antenna mounted on the
outside of the car or built into a separate package, or
•
a headset with a remote antenna to a mobile phone carried at the waist.

Ten Driving Safety Tips
Your Siemens wireless phone gives you the power to communicate by voice – almost anywhere,
anytime. But an important responsibility accompanies the benefits of wireless phones, one that
every user must uphold. When driving a car, driving is your first responsibility. When using your
wireless phone behind the wheel of a car, practice good common sense and remember the
following tips:
Get to know your phone and its features such as speed dial and
redial
Carefully read your instruction manual and learn to take advantage of valuable features most
phones offer including, automatic redial and memory dial – most phones can store up to 99
numbers in memory dial. Also, work to memorize the phone keypad so you can use the speed
dial function without taking your attention off the road.
When available, use a hands-free device
A number of hands-free wireless phone accessories are readily available today. Whether you
choose an installed mounted device for your phone or a speaker phone accessory, take advantage
of these devices if they are available to you.
Position your phone within easy reach
Make sure you place your wireless phone within easy reach and where you can grab it without
SX66 User Manual
25
removing your eyes from the road. If you get an incoming call at an inconvenient time, let your
voicemail answer it for you.
Suspend conversations during hazardous driving conditions or
situations
Let the person you are speaking to know you are driving; if necessary, suspend the call in heavy
traffic or hazardous weather conditions. Rain, sleet, snow and ice can be hazardous, but so is
heavy traffic. As a driver, your first responsibility is to pay attention to the road.
Do not take notes or look up phone numbers while driving
If you are reading an address book or business card while driving a car, or writing a “to do”
list, then you are not watching where you are going. It’s common sense. Don’t get caught in a
dangerous situation because you are reading or writing and not paying attention to the road or
nearby vehicles.
Dial sensibly and assess the traffic
If possible, place calls when you are not moving or before pulling into traffic. Try to plan your calls
before you begin your trip, or attempt to coincide your calls with times you may be stopped at a
stop sign, red light or otherwise stationary. But if you need to dial while driving, follow this simple
tip – dial only a few numbers, check the road and your mirrors, then continue.
Do not engage in stressful or emotional conversations that may be
distracting
Stressful or emotional conversations and driving do not mix – they are distracting and even
dangerous when you are behind the wheel. Make people you are talking with aware you are
driving and if necessary, suspend phone conversations that have the potential to divert your
attention from the road.
Use your phone to call for help
Your wireless phone is one of the greatest tools you can own to protect yourself and your family
in dangerous situations – with your phone at your side, help is only three numbers away. Dial
9-1-1 in the case of fire, traffic accident, road hazard, or medical emergency. Remember, it is a
free call on your wireless phone.
26
SX66 User Manual
Use your phone to help others in emergencies
Your wireless phone provides you a perfect opportunity to be a “good Samaritan” in your community. If you see an auto accident, crime in progress or other serious emergencies where lives
are in danger, call 9-1-1, as you would want others to do for you.
Call roadside assistance or a special wireless non-emergency assistance
number when necessary
Certain situations you encounter while driving may require attention, but are not urgent enough
to merit a call to 9-1-1. But you can still use your wireless phone to lend a hand. If you see a
broken-down vehicle posing no serious hazard, a broken traffic signal, a minor traffic accident
where no one appears injured, or a vehicle you know to be stolen, call roadside assistance or
other special non-emergency wireless numbers.
“The wireless industry reminds you to use your phone safely when driving.”

SAR (SX66)
RF EXPOSURE/SPECIFIC ABSORPTION RATE (SAR) INFORMATION
THIS SIEMENS SX66 PHONE MEETS THE GOVERNMENT’S REQUIREMENTS FOR EXPOSURE TO ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS.
Your cell phone is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed and manufactured not to exceed
the emission limits for exposure to radio frequency (RF) energy established by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) of the U.S. Government and by Health Canada. These limits
are part of comprehensive guidelines and establish permitted levels of RF energy for the general
population. The guidelines were developed and confirmed by independent scientific organizations
through periodic and thorough evaluation of scientific studies*. The limits include a substantial
safety margin designed to assure the safety of all persons, regardless of age and health.
The exposure standard for cell phones employs a unit of measurement known as the Specific
Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit established by the FCC and by Health Canada is 1.6
W/kg**. Tests for SAR are conducted using standard operating positions accepted by the FCC
and by Industry Canada 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, the lower
the power output.
Before a phone model is available for sale to the public, it must be tested and the manufacturer
must certify to the FCC and Industry Canada that it does not exceed the limit established by each
government for safe exposure. The tests are performed in positions and locations (e.g., at the
ear and worn on the body), reported to the FCC and available for review by Industry Canada.
The highest SAR value for this Siemens SX66 when tested for use at the ear is 0.4 mW/g*** and
when worn on the body+ is 0.548 mW/g***
28
SX66 User Manual
Additional information on Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) can be found on the Cellular Telecommunications Internet Association (CTIA) web-site at www.phonefacts.net or the Canadian Wireless
Telecommunications Association (CWTA) website www.cwta.ca
SAR information on this Siemens SX66 phone is on file with the FCC and can be found
under the Display Grant section of http://www.fcc.gov/oet/fccid after searching on FCC ID
NM8BLUEANGEL. While there may be differences between the SAR levels of various phones
and at various positions, all Siemens products meet the governmental requirements for safe
RF exposure.
For body worn operation, this mobile phone has been tested and meets FCC RF exposure
guidelines when used with a Siemens accessory designated for this product, where
available, or when used with a carry accessory that contains no metal and that positions
the handset at least 1.5 cm/0.59 in from the body. Use of other carry accessories may not
ensure compliance with FCC RF exposure guidelines.
* The World Health Organization (WHO, CH-1211 Geneva 27, Switzerland), on the basis of
the actual knowledge, does not see any necessity for special precautionary measures
when using cell phones.

1.2 Battery
Your SX66 contains a rechargeable Li-ion polymer battery.
Battery power depends on whether you are talking on the
phone, using the PDA, or if the device is on standby.
Battery life estimates:
n Talk-time: 3 - 4 hrs.
n PDA: 15 hrs (approximate.).
n Standby: 168 hrs (approximate.).
n Data retention time: 72 hrs.
The above are based on using one function at a time. Battery
life may vary with switching between functions.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire or burns, do not disassemble, crush, puncture, short external contacts, heat above
60℃ (140℉), or dispose of in fire or water. Replace only with
manufacturer specified batteries. Recycle or dispose of used
batteries as stipulated by local regulations.
Data retention
It is vital to keep your battery charged. Because your SX66
does not have a hard drive, all data and any new programs
you install are stored in the RAM. If the battery completely
drains, any data or new programs you installed will be
erased. Only the default programs that came with the device
at the time of purchase will remain.
To prevent this kind of data loss, a portion of the main battery
will keep your data safe for 72 hours if your device runs out
of power. An additional battery, the internal backup battery, is
designed to keep your data safe when you remove the main
battery. It will keep the data safe for 20 minutes.
NOTE: Be sure to check that the internal backup battery
power remains at least at 50% OR ABOVE before you remove the main battery by tapping the Start menu > Settings
> the System tab > Power.

2.4 Drawing on the Screen
You can draw on the screen in the same way that you write
on the screen. The difference between writing and drawing
on the screen is how you select items and how they can be
edited. For example, selected drawings can be re-sized,
while writing cannot.
To create a drawing:
Cross three ruled lines on your first stroke. A drawing box
appears. Subsequent strokes in, or touching, the drawing
box become part of the drawing. Drawings that do not cross
three ruled lines will be treated as writing.
The drawing box indicates
the boundaries of the
drawing
To select a drawing
If you want to edit or format a drawing, you must select it
first.
1. Tap and hold the stylus on the drawing until the
selection handle appears. To select multiple drawings,
deselect the pen button and then drag to select the
drawings you want.
2. You can cut, copy, and paste selected drawings by
tapping and holding the selected drawing and then
tapping an editing command on the pop up menu, or
by tapping the command on the Edit menu. To re-size
a drawing, make sure the Pen button is not selected,
and drag a selection handle.
To change the zoom level so it is easier to work or view your
drawing, tap Tools and then select a zoom level.

Activating LEAP
The LEAP (Lightweight Extensible Authentication Protocol) section of the application allows
you to increase the security of your device by setting the SSID, username, password, and
domain to ensure that no one can access your network without your permission. Most 802.11
access points offer by default a form of authentication called open systems authentication,
which is this device’s default setting. In this mode, the access point grants approval for any
request for authentication. The client simply sends an authentication request frame, and the
access point responds with an authentication approval. This lets anyone having the correct
SSID to associate with the access point. For LEAP to work correctly, both the access point
and the receiving device (your SX66 Phone) must be set with the same username and
password, and SSID.

SX66 User Manual

8.1 E-Mail and Text Messages
You can receive E-mail and text messages in Messaging. E-mail messages are sent by
using an address you receive from your Internet service provider (ISP), an E-mail service
provider, or your employer. Text messages are sent and received through your phone service
provider by using a phone number as the message address.
You can also send and receive E-mail by synchronizing with your PC, or by connecting to a
Post Office Protocol 3 (POP3) or Internet Message Access Protocol 4 (IMAP4) mail server.
You need to set up an E-mail account for each method that you use except for an Outlook
E-mail account, which is set up by default. The Outlook E-mail account on your SX66 is
used to store messages that you send and receive through synchronization with a PC. Account names appear when you open the folder list, which is located on the left, under the
navigation bar, in the message list view.
How you download copies of messages depends on how you are receiving messages:
n If you receive E-mail messages through a remote E-mail server, follow the instruction as
described on the next page, under "Downloading messages from a server."
n If you receive E-mail messages through ActiveSync, begin synchronization. For more
information, please refer to Chapter 4.
n Text messages are automatically received when your phone is turned on. Otherwise,
messages are held by your service provider until the next time your phone is turned on.
With synchronization, messages are synchronized between the SX66 Inbox folder for the
Outlook E-mail account and the PC Inbox by using ActiveSync and Microsoft Exchange
or Microsoft Outlook. For more information, see Chapter 4.
Setting up an E-Mail account:
Open Messaging on your SX66 by tapping the Start menu > Messaging > Accounts >
New Account. The E-mail Setup wizard will prompt you to fill in the necessary information
to complete the setup.
1. Fill in your E-mail address, then tap Next.
2. The Auto configuration will attempt to connect your SX66 to your E-mail server and
automatically download the necessary connection settings. If Auto configuration is
unsuccessful, contact your ISP or network administrator.
3. Enter Your name, User name and Password, then tap Next. If you check the Save
password box, your device will not ask for your password the next time you log in to an
E-mail account. However, other people can access your account if you lose the device.

Managing Messages and Folders
Each E-mail account and text message account has its own folder hierarchy with five default
folders: Inbox, Outbox, Deleted Items, Drafts, and Sent Items. The messages you receive
and send through the mail account are stored in these folders. You can also create additional
folders within each hierarchy. The behavior of the folders you create depends on whether
you are using an Outlook E-Mail, Text Messages, POP3, MMS, or IMAP4 account.
If you use an Outlook E-Mail account, E-mail messages in the Inbox folder in Outlook
E-Mail will automatically be synchronized with your device. You can elect to synchronize
additional folders by designating them for ActiveSync. The folders you create and the messages you move will then be mirrored on the server.
If you use a Text Messages account, messages are stored in the Inbox folder.
If you use a POP3 account 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 folder 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.
If you use an IMAP4 account, the folders you create and the E-mail messages you move
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.

Adding or Removing Programs
By default, programs added to your device at the factory are stored in the ROM (read only
memory). You cannot remove these programs, and you will never accidentally lose them.
You can install any other programs created for your device, as long as your device has
enough memory. The most popular web site to find software for SX66 devices is http:
//www.microsoft.com/mobile/pocketpc.
To add programs using ActiveSync:
You will need to save the appropriate software to the hard drive of your PC before installing
it on your device.
1. Download the program to your PC (or insert the CD or disk that contains the program into
your PC). Be sure that the program is compatible with your SX66 before installing it.
2. Read any installation instruction or documentation that came with the program. Many
programs provide their own installation instructions.
3. Connect your device to a PC.
4. Double click on the program's .exe file.
n If the file is an installer, the installation wizard will begin. Follow the directions on the screen.
Once the software has been installed on your PC, the installer will automatically transfer
the software to your device.
n If the file is not an installer, you will see an error message stating that the program is
valid but was designed for a different type of PC. You will need to move this file to your
device. If you cannot find any installation instructions for the program in the Read Me file
or documentation, use the Explore command in ActiveSync to explore the program file
to the Program Files folder on your device.
Once installation is completed, tap the Start menu > Programs > program icon.
To add a program directly from the Internet :
1. Determine that your device and processor type meets the requirement of the software that
you want to install.
2. Download the program to your device directly from the Internet using Pocket Internet
Explorer. You should see a single *.xip, *.exe or *.zip file, a setup.exe file, or several
versions of the files for different device types and processors. Be sure to select the program
designed for the SX66.
3. Read the installation instructions, readme files, or documentation that came with the program.
4. Tap the file, such as a *.xip or *.exe file. The installation wizard will begin. Follow the
directions on the screen.

To remove a program:
Tap the Start menu > Settings > System > Remove Programs.
You can only remove programs installed in storage memory. Programs that came with your
device cannot be removed. You can quickly return your device to the factory default configuration by clearing all memory. All data, except the installed ROM application, will be lost.
Managing Memory
Memory on your SX66 is shared between the storage memory and the program memory.
Storage memory is used to store the information you have created and the programs you have
installed. Program memory is used to run programs on your SX66. The SX66 automatically
manages the allocation between the storage memory and the program memory.
To view memory allocation and availability:
Tap the Start menu > Settings > the System tab > Memory.
Finding space in storage memory
Under certain situations, such as when the memory is low, your SX66 may not be able to
automatically adjust the memory allocation. When you receive a message stating that storage or program memory is unavailable, try the following solutions:
Move data to a SD storage card
1. Tap the Start menu > Programs > File Explorer.
2. Tap and hold the file you want to move, and tap Cut. Open the My Documents folder in

Backing Up Files
Because any new programs or data are stored in RAM, and therefore will be lost if your
device loses power for any reason, it is critical that you back up the device's files to your
PC or a memory card. You can back up files by synchronization while working on a PC.
However, if you are unable to access your PC, you will need to back up files to a SD or MMC
card. Your device enables you to back up individual files in Word or Excel. All files could
be saved on a SD. Furthermore, you can also back up and restore Contacts, Calendar,
Internet and Messaging Settings.
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 back up or transfer files and data.
To insert a memory card:
Push the memory card into its slot until it clicks into place. The card is secure when it is not
protruding from the base.
To remove a memory card
To remove the card, push it in and then release, letting the card spring out.
Backing up or restoring your system using xBackup:
1. Tap the Start menu > Programs > xBackup > then the Backup or Restore tab.
2. If you have inserted the SD card properly, it will appear next to Target. Tap Open and select
Storage Card under the task bar.
3. Make sure that no applications are running, tap Start.
Backing up or restoring your system via ActiveSync
1. Double click on

Resetting the SX66
You can perform a soft reset or a full reset. During a soft reset, the device is restarted and
only some data in opened programs may be lost. However, a full reset turns the battery off,
returns the device to its original factory settings, and deletes all programs, files, contacts
and other information you have saved to the device. Therefore, it is extremely important to
back up data to a storage card or your computer on a regular basis in the event that a full
reset has to be performed.
To perform a soft reset
If your SX66 responds slowly, stops responding, or freezes, you can soft reset it. A soft
reset causes the SX66 to restart and re-adjust memory allocation. Unsaved data in any
opened applications may be lost. Use the stylus to press and hold the Reset button, as
shown bellow.
To perform a full reset
A full device reset clears memory, deletes all data and restores the SX66 to its default settings. Programs installed at the factory remain, erasing all data that you have created and
programs you have installed. Press and hold the power button, and then use the stylus to
press the soft reset button at the same time. Be sure you have backed up all your data in
a SD card or on your PC before performing a full reset.

RF EXPOSURES
FCC part 15, 22 and part 24
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC
Rules. Operation is subject to the following
two conditions : (1) this device may not cause
harmful interference, and (2) this device must
accept any interference received, including
interference that may cause undesired
operation.
FCC ID : NM8 BLUEANGEL
n Statement according to FCC part
15.105
This equipment has been tested and found
to comply with the limits for a Class B digital
device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC
Rules. These limits are designed to provide
reasonable protection against harmful
interference in a residential installation.
This equipment generates, uses and can
radiate radio frequency energy and, if not
installed and used in accordance with the
instructions, may cause harmful interference
to radio communications. However, there is
no guarantee that interference will not occur
in a particular installation. If this equipment
does cause harmful interference to radio or
television reception, which can be determined
by turning the equipment off and on, the user is
encouraged to try to correct the interference by
one or more of the following measures.
n
Reorient or relocate the receiving
antenna.
n
Increase the separation between the
equipment and receiver.
169
Tests for SAR are conducted using standard
operating positions specified by the FCC 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 during operation 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., at the ear and worn on the body) as
required by the FCC for each model. (Body-worn
measurements may 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.
For body worn operation, to maintain compliance
with FCC RF exposure guidelines, use only
Siemens. approved accessories. When carrying
the phone while it is on, use the specific Siemens.
supplied or approved carrying case, holster, or
other body-worn accessory.
Use of non Siemens. approved accessories may
violate FCC RF exposure guidelines and should
be avoided.
