Welcome
Congratulations on purchasing a WA 3050 device, the
complete Microsoft® Windows®-powered organiser and
communications solution for the mobile professional. The
WA 3050 device helps you stay in touch, keeping vital
business and personal information current and close at hand.
Integrated into your device is a next-generation GSM phone
with a full range of voice and data capabilities, including the
ability to send and receive SMS and fax, and a WAP browser
for access to the mobile Internet. Microsoft Pocket Outlook
lets you read and write e-mail and manage your appointments
and contacts. Microsoft ActiveSync allows you to
synchronize information on your device with a PC or
notebook computer.
Picture yourself in the following situations:
§
Your cell phone rings, and the boss asks if you are free
this afternoon for a meeting. You scramble through your
briefcase, looking for your digital organiser.
§
You are meeting friends for dinner and a movie. You
download movie listings from the Internet to your PC,
then synchronize it with your organiser. By the time you
arrive for dinner, your friends have already ordered
dessert.
§
You grab your digital organiser to catch the bus. On the
way home, you review your task list, make notes about
new CDs you want to buy, and read and write responses
to e-mail. Then you remember an important fax you
forgot to send before you left the office.
Now imagine how much easier it might be in each of these
situations if you had a single device that:
§
Is both a cell phone and digital organiser
§
Provides fast access to the “wireless web”
13
§
Enables you to respond immediately to e-mail
§
Lets you send SMS messages or faxes on the spot
Your WA 3050 device can do all of this and more.
1.1
How to use the information in this
manual
Use as little or as much of the information in this manual as
you think you need. If you are familiar with the way GSM
phones work, you may be able to scan the calling
procedures to quickly grasp how to complete a familiar task
using the WA 3050 device.
You may not need to consult some of the appendices at all,
which contain reference information useful in some
situations. For example, the procedure for transferring
Palm-size PC data may be of interest if you previously
owned a Palm-size PC.
This owner’s guide has been written to meet the broadest
set of needs of users who will have different reasons for
purchasing and using the WA 3050 device. You are
probably interested in using some of its capabilities right
away more than others.
Recognizing this, chapters have been grouped into several
major divisions or topic clusters.
“Getting started” reviews WA 3050 setup information,
provides an overview of product features, and explains the
basics of the Pocket PC and dialing screen features.
“Voice communication” covers what you need to know to
use WA 3050 phone features.
14
“Data communication” explains how to configure, access,
and use applications on your WA 3050 device that transmit
and receive data with external resources such as your
carrier network, the Internet, fax machines, and remote
servers.
“Organiser, pocket computing, multimedia” describes how
to get started using ActiveSync, Pocket Outlook,
companion programs such as Word, Microsoft Money,
Excel, Windows Media Player, and Microsoft Reader. The
section on using Transcriber contains information from the
Microsoft Transcriber User Guide.
“Customizing your device” covers procedures for
customizing Pocket PC and phone program settings,
installing additional software, and configuring your WA
3050 device to use as a modem for your PC or notebook
computer.
“Managing resources” describes some tools and procedures
you can use to perform preventive maintenance and track
phone costs.
The appendices present reference information on various
topics.

41
Note Tapping
, then Phone displays the dialing screen,
but you will be unable to make a call until the phone has

You can also switch to some programs by pressing one of
the program buttons located on the front or side of your
device. The icons on the buttons identify the programs they
display. You can select options for customizing which
programs these buttons display (see “Adjusting Pocket PC
device settings”).
2.2.7 Navigation bar and command bar
The navigation bar is located at the top of Pocket PC
program screens when you tap the
icon. It displays the
title of the active program and the current time, and allows
you to switch to other programs and close screens.
42
Tap to select a program
Tap here to close the
screen
Tap here to switch to

Use the command bar at the bottom of the screen to
perform tasks in programs . The command bar includes
menu names, buttons, and the input panel button. To create
a new item in the current program, tap New. To see the
name of a button, tap and hold the stylus on the button.
Drag the stylus off the button so that the command is not
carried out.
43
2.2.8 Pop-up menus
With pop-up menus, you can quickly choose an action for
an item. For example, you can use the pop-up menu in the
contact list to quickly delete a contact, make a copy of a
contact, or send e-mail to a contact. The actions in the popup menus vary from one program to another. To access a
pop-up menu, tap and hold the stylus on the item that you
want to perform the action on. When the menu appears, lift
the stylus, and tap the action you want to perform. Or tap
anywhere outside the menu to close the menu without
performing an action.
2.2.9 Modes of operation
With respect to the phone and PDA components, your
WA 3050 device operates in one of three states:
§
44
The PDA is turned on but the phone is off
§
The PDA is turned off but the phone is on
§
Both the phone and PDA are on
Different capabilities are available and certain restrictions
apply in each of these states. Understanding each of these
states and some of the restrictions can help you get a better
understanding of how your device works at a basic level as
well as decide when and whether you need to operate the
phone and PDA components at the same time.
When the PDA is on but the phone is off, you can access
Pocket PC programs but are unable to make or receive
voice calls, receive or reply to SMS messages, or use any
of the other programs that utilise data transmission such as
EzWAP and Inbox. You may find it useful to work in this
mode when you just want to use organizer features or
programs and do not want to be interrupted by incoming
calls.
In the second state, the PDA is turned off to conserve
power. You are unable to access Pocket PC programs or the
dialing screen (to make outgoing calls), but you can still
receive incoming calls because the phone component is
operating in standby mode. When an incoming call is
received, the PDA powers automatically on, the dialing
screen is displayed automatically, and you can accept or
reject the call. Work in this mode when you want to use
your device to answer incoming calls.
When the phone and PDA components are on at the same
time, you can access and work in Pocket PC programs and
answer incoming calls. If you are working in a Pocket PC
program and you receive a call, the display changes
automatically to the dialing screen, and you can answer or
reject the call. When you are done with the call, you can
switch back to the program you were working in and wait
for the next incoming call.
45
Note If you switch to one of the programs that utilises
wireless data transmission, you will be unable to receive
incoming calls during the time that your device is
connected.
If you must work with both the PDA and phone on, keep in
mind that you will have to charge the battery more often
and may not be as productive using organiser or other
Pocket PC programs if you are interrupted frequently by
incoming calls.
2.2.10 Notifications
Your WA 3050 device uses a variety of ways to notify you
when you have something to do. For example, if you have
set up an appointment in Calendar, a task with a due date in
Tasks, or an alarm in Clock, you will be notified in any of
the following ways:
§
A status LED flashes (green)
§
A message box appears on the screen
§
A sound is played.
When you receive an incoming call, your device vibrates
and may play a .WAV file or sound a default ring tone. A
status LED flashes amber and a .WAV file plays when you
receive an SMS message.
When the battery is charging, the GSM status LED flashes
amber. When the battery is fully charged, the status LED
remains lit until you disconnect the external power supply.
For more information about LED notification, refer to the
page facing the inside front cover.
To choose reminder types and sounds, tap , then
Settings. In the Personal tab, tap Sounds & Reminders.
46
To choose the .WAV file that plays when you receive an
incoming call, refer to the section “Selecting options for
ring tone and vibrating alert”. To choose the .WAV files
that play when you receive an incoming SMS or fax, refer
to “Configuring SMS & fax settings”.
Caution Be sure to tap
and close any dialogue
boxes when they appear. Failure to do so may result in
a loss of your WA 3050 device’s audio capabilities.
2.2.11 Entering information
The number “keys” and other “buttons” on the WA 3050
soft dialing pad are designed to be finger-activated. You
can use your fingers or the stylus (if you prefer) to dial a
number and select context-sensitive buttons and other
options while using your phone.
You have a variety options for entering information on
other screens:
§
Use the soft keyboard or Character Recognizer to enter
typed text in the input panel
§
Write directly on the screen
§
Draw pictures on the screen
§
Speak into the microphone to record a message
§
Synchronize or copy information from your computer
to your WA 3050 device using ActiveSync. For more
information on ActiveSync, see the booklet

program. You can either type using the soft keyboard or
write using Character Recognizer. In either case, the
characters appear as typed text on the screen.
Tap the Input Panel button to show or hide the input
panel, then tap the arrow next to the Input Panel button to
see your choices.
When you use the input panel, your WA 3050 device
anticipates the word you are typing or writing and displays
it above the input panel. When you tap the displayed word,
it is inserted into your text at the insertion point. The more
you use your device, the more words it learns to anticipate.
48
To change word suggestion options, such as the number of
words suggested at one time, tap
, Settings, Personal
tab, Input, then the Word Completion tab.
To type with the soft keyboard
1.
Tap the arrow next to the Input Panel button, then
Keyboard.
2.
Tap the keys with your stylus on the soft keyboard that
is displayed.
To use Character Recognizer
1.
Tap the arrow next to the Input Panel button, then
Character Recognizer.
2.
Write a letter in the box.
49
When you write a letter, it is converted to typed text that
appears on the screen. Some letters must be written in a
particular way to be recognized. For information, tap
to see an online demonstration, or see Appendix B for
specific instructions on using Character Recognizer.
To select typed text
If you want to edit or format typed text, you must select it
first by dragging the stylus across the text you want to
select.
You can cut, copy, and paste text by tapping and holding
the selected words then tapping an editing command on the
pop-up menu, or by tapping the command on the Edit
menu.
2.2.13 Writing on the screen
In any program that accepts writing, such as the Notes
program and the Notes tab in Calendar, Contacts, and
Tasks, you can use your stylus to write directly on the
screen. Write the way you are used to writing on paper.
You can edit and format what you have written and convert
the information to text at a later time.
50
To write on the screen
§
Tap the Pen button to switch to writing mode. This
action displays lines on the screen to help you write.
Note Some programs that accept writing may not have the
Pen button. See the documentation for that program to find
out how to switch to writing mode.
To select writing
If you want to edit what you write, you must first select it.
1.
Tap and hold the stylus next to the text you want to
select until the insertion point appears.
51
2.
Without lifting the stylus, drag it across the text you
want to select.
If you accidentally write on the screen, tap Edit then Undo
and try again. You can also select text by tapping the Pen
button to deselect it then dragging the stylus across the
screen.
You can cut, copy, and paste written text in the same way
you work with typed text: tap and hold the selected words,
then tap an editing command on the pop-up menu, or tap
the command on the Edit menu.
To convert writing to text
§
Tap Tools and then Recognize.
If you want to convert only certain words, select them
before tapping Recognize on the Tools menu (or tap and
hold the selected words then tap Recognize on the pop-up
menu). If a word is not recognized, it is left as writing.
52
If the conversion is incorrect, you can select different
words from a list of alternates or return to the original
writing. To do so, tap and hold the incorrect word (tap one
word at a time). On the pop-up menu, tap Alternates. A
menu with a list of alternate words appears. Tap the word
you want to use, or tap the writing at the top of the menu to
return to the original writing.
Tips for getting good recognition:
§
Write neatly.
§
Write on the lines and draw descenders below the line.
Write the cross of the “t” and apostrophes below the
top line so that they are not confused with the word
above. Write periods and commas above the line.
§
For better recognition, try increasing the zoom level to
300% using the Tools menu.
53
§
Write the letters of a word closely and leave big gaps
between words so that it is easy to tell where words
begin and end.
§
Hyphenated words, words that use special characters
such as accents, and some punctuation cannot be
converted.
§
If you add writing to a word to change it (such as
changing a “3” to an “8”) after you attempt to
recognize the word, the writing you add will not be
included if you attempt to recognize the writing again.
2.2.14 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 resized,
while writing cannot.
To create a drawing
§
54
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.
Note You may want to change the zoom level so that you
can more easily work on or view your drawing. Tap Tools
and then a zoom level.
To select a drawing
If you want to edit or format a drawing, you must first
select it. Tap and hold the stylus on the drawing until the
selection handle appears. To select multiple drawings, tap
the Pen button so that it is no longer selected, then drag to
select the drawings you want.
You can cut, copy, and paste selected drawings by tapping
and holding the selected drawing then tapping an editing
command on the pop-up menu, or by tapping the command
on the Edit menu. To resize a drawing, make sure the Pen
button is not selected and drag a selection handle.
55
2.2.15 Recording a message
In any program where you can write or draw on the screen,
you can also quickly capture thoughts, reminders, and
phone numbers by recording a message. In Calendar,
Tasks, and Contacts, you can include a recording in the

Using Call Status
The message area on the dialing screen displays
information about the status of calls in progress. When you
make a call, it displays some or all of the following:
§
The number you are dialing
§
The name of the party you are calling if there is a
matching caller ID in the Contacts list
§
Other information such as call length and cost if
activated.
If you receive an incoming call during a call in progress,
the message area announces the incoming call and may
include the caller’s name and number if the caller ID is
available and it matches one in the Contacts list.
76
The contents of the message area changes depending on the
status of calling activity. The Call Status feature enables
you to monitor the status of two or more calls in progress
(up to four at a time) and to perform an action based on the
information in the entry, the type of call, and available
options. Call Status lets you switch among multiple calls
without ending any of them.

Using the Sync SIM utility
In addition to subscription information, your SIM card
contains a directory for storing frequently dialed phone
numbers. The number of phone numbers you can store
depends on the capacity of the card issued by your carrier.
If you know its location (index number) in the directory,
you can dial a number by keying in its index number
followed by the pound sign (#) on the dialing screen.
You can remove the SIM card, insert it into a compatible
phone or another WA 3050 unit, and continue to access the
directory of frequently dialed phone numbers to place a
call.
On a Pocket PC device, Contacts is the main place for
storing names and phone numbers and other contact
information. If you use another phone or WA 3050 unit,
you can use the Sync SIM utility installed on your
WA 3050 device to:

SMS § fax § WAP § e-mail § Web browser
10 Using wireless data
applications
Your WA 3050 device provides built-in support for several
forms of wireless data communication. For example, an
on-board Infrared transceiver enables you to send and
receive information with another IR-compatible Windowspowered device (see “Transferring items using Infrared”).
A combination of Windows and specialised third-party
software enables you to accomplish the following when the
phone is turned on but idle (no calls in progress):
§
Send SMS and faxes
§
Browse the Web and view WAP-enabled sites
§
Send and receive e-mail.
Some additional services must be available before you can
take advantage of these capabilities. First, your GSM
network phone subscription must include support for data
transmission. If you are unsure whether your subscription
includes this support, check with your carrier. You will also
need to establish an account with an Internet Service
Provider (ISP) for Web access and e-mail service. In some
cases, your wireless phone carrier may also serve as your
ISP by providing dial-up access to the Internet. The way
you access WAP-enabled sites also may depend on whether
or not your carrier or ISP provides a WAP Gateway.
Once support for data transmission and Internet access are
in place, you need to complete some set-up tasks to ensure
that software is properly configured, and to define at least
one dial-up connection.

Use Inbox to send and receive e-mail messages in either of
these ways:
§
Synchronize messages with Microsoft Exchange or
Microsoft Outlook on your desktop computer
§
Send and receive messages using a remote connection
to an ISP or a network
10.7.1 Synchronising messages
E-mail messages can be synchronized as part of the general
synchronization process. First, you will need to enable
message synchronization in ActiveSync.
During synchronization:
§ Messages are copied from the Inbox folder of
Exchange or Outlook on your desktop computer to the
Inbox folder on your device. The messages on the two
computers are linked, so when you delete a message on
your device, it is also deleted from your desktop
computer the next time you synchronize.
§
Messages in the Outbox folder on your device are
transferred to Exchange or Outlook, and then sent from
those programs .
Features available on your desktop computer, such as
scheduling meetings and selective downloading of file
attachments, are also available on your device.
Tip You can also synchronize mail with your desktop
computer from a remote location. For more information,
see “Getting connected”.
129
10.7.2 Sending and receiving e-mail
remotely
In addition to exchanging e-mail messages with your
desktop computer, you can send and receive e-mail from a
remote mail server by using a modem or network card
connected to your device. You will need to set up a remote
connection to a network or an Internet service provider
(ISP) and a connection to your mail server. For more
information, see “Getting connected”.
Messages that you receive remotely are linked to your mail
server rather than your desktop computer. You can see the
mail you receive remotely by selecting the service in the
folder list.
You can work online or offline. When working online, you
read and respond to messages while connected to the
server. Messages are sent as soon as you tap Send, which
saves space on your device.
When working offline, once you have downloaded new
message headers or partial messages, you can disconnect
from the server and then decide which messages to
download completely. The next time you connect, Inbox
downloads the complete messages marked for retrieval and
sends the messages you have composed.
When you connect to the mail server, new messages are
downloaded to the device Inbox folder, messages in the
device Outbox folder are sent, and messages that have been
deleted on the server are removed from the device Inbox.
130
10.7.3 Receiving messages
Messages you receive are displayed in the message list. By
default, the most recently received messages are displayed
first in the list.
131
When you receive a message, tap it in the list to open it.
Unread messages are displayed in bold.
When you connect to your Internet mail service or
synchronize with your desktop computer, Inbox downloads
only the first 100 lines of each new message by default. No
mail attachments are downloaded. The original messages
remain on the mail server or your desktop computer.
You can mark the messages that you want to retrieve in
their entirety the next time you synchronize or connect to
your mail service. In the message list, tap and hold the
message you want to retrieve. On the pop-up menu, tap Get
132
Full Copy. The icons in the Inbox message list give you
visual indications of message status.
You specify your downloading preferences when you set
up the service or select your synchronization options. You
can change them at any time:
§
To change Inbox delivery options for mail
synchronization, see ActiveSync Help
§
To change Inbox delivery options for remote mail, in
Inbox on your device, tap Tools and then tap Options.
On the Service tab, tap the service you want to change.
You must download a full message before you can view its
attachments.
Microsoft Exchange users can use Inbox to schedule
meetings remotely. Set up the meeting in Calendar. Your
network administrator must enable Microsoft rich text
support (.rtf) for any accounts that will be accessed by
mobile device users.

Messages are placed in your Outbox folder on your device
and will be delivered in one of two ways:
§
134
They are transferred to the Outbox folder in Exchange
or Outlook on your desktop computer the next time
you synchronize.
§
They are transmitted to your mail server the next time
you connect remotely. In Inbox, make sure the
appropriate service is selected on the Services menu.
Then tap the Connect button (or Connect on the
Services menu).
Note When you are done composing and sending e-mail
messages, be sure to close the connection (see “Ending a
connection”). You will be unable to make or receive calls,
SMS, or fax if you leave the connection open.
10.8
Managing messages and folders
By default, messages are displayed in one of four folders
for each service you have created: Inbox, Deleted (local),
Outbox, and Sent. The Deleted folder contains messages
that have been deleted on the device. If you are using
IMAP4, you may see a Deleted Items folder. This folder is
for messages deleted on the server. The behavior of the
Deleted and Sent folders depends on the options you have
chosen. In the message list, tap Tools and then Options.
On the Message tab, select your options.
If you want to organise messages into additional folders,
tap Tools, and then New Folder to create new folders. To
move or copy a message to another folder, in the message
list, tap and hold the message to display a pop-up menu
with a list of options. Then tap Move to or Copy to and
select the folder.
10.8.1 Folder behaviour using ActiveSync
If you move messages into a folder you create, the link is
broken between these messages and their copies on the
desktop computer. When you synchronize next, the
messages in the folder you created will not be
synchronized. In addition, the desktop computer will see
that the messages are missing from the device Inbox folder
135
and delete them from the Inbox folder on the desktop so
that both Inbox folders match. This prevents you from
getting duplicate copies of a message, but it also means that
you will no longer have access to the messages you move
out of Inbox except from the device.
10.8.2 Folder behavior for remote services
The behavior of the folders you create depends on whether
you are using POP3 or IMAP4:
§
If you are using POP3, folders will behave like they do
when using ActiveSync.
§
If you are using IMAP4, the folders you create and the
messages you move are mirrored on the server. For
example, if you move two messages from the Inbox
folder to a folder called Family, the server will create a
copy of the Family folder and copy the messages into
that folder. Therefore, messages are available to you
anytime you connect to your mail server, whether it is
from your WA 3050 device, a PC, or notebook
computer. This synchronization of folders occurs when
you create a new folder, move messages into a folder,
or select Synchronize Folders on the Services menu.
If you want to view the messages in a folder while
disconnected from your mail server, select the folder
and then select Folder Available Offline on the
Services menu.

Microsoft ActiveSync
Using Microsoft ActiveSync, you can synchronize the
information on your computer with the information on your
WA 3050. Synchronization compares the data on the
WA 3050 with your computer and updates both computers
with the most recent information.
For example:
§
Keep Pocket Outlook data up-to-date by synchronizing
your WA 3050 with your choice of Microsoft Outlook,
Microsoft Schedule+, or Microsoft Exchange on your
computer
§
Synchronize Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel
documents between your WA 3050 and your
computer. Your files are automatically converted to the
correct format.
Note By default, ActiveSync does not automatically
synchronize all types of information. For example, it does
not synchronize e-mail messages. Use ActiveSync options
to turn synchronization on and off for specific information
types.
With ActiveSync, you can also:
§
Back up and restore WA 3050 data (see “Backing up
and restoring data”)
§
Copy (rather than synchronize) files between your
WA 3050 Pocket PC and computer
§
Control when synchronization occurs by selecting a
synchronization mode. For example, you can
synchronize continually while your WA 3050 is in the
cradle or only when you choose the synchronize
command
149
§
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.

Microsoft Transcriber
Microsoft Transcriber for Windows® CE is a natural
handwriting recognition program that enables you to use
or a
of cursive and printed characters whenever you use the
stylus to write directly on your WA 3050 device screen.
Transcriber lets you jot down a phone number, take notes
and more, just as easily and naturally as writing on a piece
of paper.
Caution Transcriber is a pre-installed program. If a
version of Transcriber is included on the ActiveSync CD
shipped with your device, do not attempt to install it.
189
14.1
Features
Transcriber is a powerful handwriting recognition engine.
Some of its advanced features include:
§
Natural handwriting recognition: Transcriber
recognizes print, cursive, and mixed script as well as
arbitrary symbol strings and control “gestures”.
§
Immediate usability: Unlike many handwriting
recognition programs, Transcriber is ready to run right
out of the box with no training required. You can,
however, customise Transcriber to your personal
handwriting style, thereby increasing Transcriber’s
already superb accuracy and speed.
§
Built-in dictionary: Transcriber recognizes words from
its integrated dictionaries. This includes a main
dictionary containing approximately 65K words.
Transcriber also recognizes non-vocabulary words like
personal names, geographical names, and arbitrary
handwritten symbol strings.
§
Extensive correction interface: By pointing out
Transcriber’s mistakes, you can improve its
performance.
190
14.2
Starting the program
Because Transcriber is designed to work with text-editing
software, you must open a program such as Notes, then
select Transcriber as the input method to start it.
To start Transcriber
1.
When a text-editing application such as Notes or
Pocket Word is open, tap New in the lower left corner
of the application window.
2.
Depending on what input method your handheld
device is set to, one of the following icons will appear
on the Windows taskbar:
If the icon is…
the input method is:
The soft keyboard
Character Recognizer
Transcriber
191
Note In the Notes application there is a fourth entry
method, the Cursive Recognizer, which is also
represented by a pen icon located in the center of the
taskbar. The Cursive Recognizer is the method
selected when the background for the icon is white:
Tap here to
display the input
panel menu
3.
Tap the arrow to the right of the input method icon to
display the input panel menu:
4.
Tap Transcriber to select it as the input method. The
following information appears:
192
Note Tap Don’t show this to prevent this screen from
appearing each time you start Transcriber. Tap Help to
launch Transcriber Help.
5.
Tap Close. You can now use Transcriber to write on
the screen.
14.3
Transcriber tutorials
Many people prefer to learn by doing. The following
tutorials cover a few of the most common ways in which
people use Transcriber. Read the rest of this chapter for
complete details on how Transcriber works once you are
finished with the tutorials.
Note The tutorials are designed to be generic. Transcriber
will function with any text editing software.
14.3.1 Tutorial One: the basics
This tutorial shows you how to enter text using handwriting
and some basic editing techniques.
193
1.
Launch both your text editing application, such as
Notes, and Transcriber on your device.
2.
Make sure that Transcriber is the chosen method of
input (tap the icon if necessary) and write the
following on your screen: The quick brown fox. Try
to write a bit more neatly than normal and use larger
letters until you get used to how the program responds.
This will not affect Transcriber’s accuracy; rather, it
will help introduce you to the program.
3.
If Transcriber recognizes the above text correctly, keep
writing until it mis-recognizes a word, for example:
4.
Tap and hold the stylus on the screen right next to the
incorrect text for a few seconds. Without picking up
the stylus, drag the stylus across the text you wish to
194
change so that it is highlighted as the “f” is shown
below.
Note If you find it difficult to highlight one letter, you
can change the size of the text by using the zoom mode
on your handheld device. On the toolbar choose Tools,
then select the percentage you wish to increase the text
by.
5.
Next, rewrite the letters that were recognized
incorrectly on the screen below the text. In this case
you would write a b. This will replace the highlighted
text.
6.
Other ways to highlight text include a double tap on
the incorrect word or by drawing a line through the
text you wish to change. Try drawing a line through
your sentence to highlight the text shown below:
195
7.
196
Write a new sentence, The lazy dog, and the
highlighted text will be replaced by the new sentence.
14.3.2 Tutorial Two: editing gestures
In addition to replacing incorrect text, there are also several
gestures you can use to edit your text. This tutorial will
teach you Backspace, Enter, Space, Undo, and Case change
gestures.
1.
Launch both your text editing application and
Transcriber on your device and write The quick
brown fox jumps over a lazy dog.
2.
Select jumps over a lazy dog and use the Backspace
gesture by drawing a line from right to left as shown
below. The selected text will be erased.
3.
Now, insert a carriage return by using the Enter
gesture. Make sure that the horizontal part of the
gesture is at least two times longer than the vertical
part.
197
4.
Note that the cursor moves down one line.
5.
Use the Backspace gesture again (straight line from
right to left) to erase the carriage return and move back
to the top line.
6.
Tap the word brown between the r and the o to
position the cursor, and use the Space gesture. The
space gets inserted.
198
7.
The space is added.
8.
Use the Undo gesture to remove the space. Make a
vertical line going up and retrace the line going down.
199
9.
Select the word quick and use the Case Change
gesture.
10. This turns the word quick to QUICK.
200
14.4
Customizing Transcriber
Transcriber can be customized to suit your individual needs
and preferences. Settings enable you to do the following:
§
Adjust program settings
§
Personalise the program’s handwriting recognition
capabilities.
14.4.1 Adjusting program settings
You can modify program settings that control functions
such as the thickness of the line and color of the “ink”.
Note Your WA 3050 has a monochrome screen .
Consequently, color choices mentioned in help topics or in
program options are rendered in varying shades of gray
scale.
To adjust program settings
1.
Tap the arrow to the right of the hand icon
then tap Options.
The Transcriber Settings window appears:
,
201
2.
Make sure that the input method selected is
Transcriber, then tap Options.
3.
If not already selected, tap the General tab at the
bottom of the screen to display the Transcriber Options
panel:
4.
Tap the Sound on check box to mute your device (box
is unchecked).
5.
Tap the Show intro screen box if you want the intro
screen to appear each time you start Transcriber (box
is checked).
6.
Tap the Show iconbar box if you want the Iconbar to
appear automatically each time you start Transcriber
(box is checked).
202
7.
Tap Color to select a different “ink” color.
Note This will not change the color of the recognized
typed print, only the ink written on the screen.
8.
Tap the name of a color listed on the pop-up menu that
appears:
9.
Tap the up or down arrow in the Inking box
to increase or decrease the width of the
ink.
10. Tap
to return to the Transcriber Settings panel.
11. Tap
if you are done configuring Transcriber
settings.
203
14.4.2 Personalising handwriting recognition
capabilities
The recognizer is the software module that actually
recognizes your handwriting. Transcriber includes options
for customising how the program recognizes your
handwriting.
To personalise handwriting recognition
capabilities
1.
Tap the arrow to the right of the hand icon
then tap Options.
2.
Make sure that the input method is Transcriber, then
tap Options.
204
,
3.
Tap the Recognizer tab to display the following:
4.
Check or clear the following boxes to toggle their
functions on and off:
Add space after Tells Transcriber to insert a space
after each recognized word or fragment.
Separate letters mode This mode forces the
recognizer to only recognize words written with
separate letters. For example,
would be
recognized but
, because it has
connected letters, will not be recognized when
Separate letters mode has been selected. If you print,
selecting this option will speed up recognition.
205
5.
Drag the slider to adjust the value of Speed vs.
Quality to customise how you want Transcriber to
trade off in speed versus quality of recognition.
Moving the slider towards the speed end of the
spectrum will make Transcriber recognize your
handwriting very quickly, but it may contain more
errors. Moving the slider to the quality end of the
spectrum makes Transcriber very accurate, but at a
substantial cost in speed. The default slider position is
usually acceptable for most applications, providing
excellent accuracy with a reasonable delay.
6.
Drag the slider to adjust Recognition delay. This
slider allows you to adjust how quickly Transcriber
converts your handwriting into text. If Transcriber
converts your handwriting into typed text too quickly,
you might become confused, because your writing
would disappear too quickly. Also, you would not have
enough time to write multi-stroke letters (such as
crossing the letter “t”). Therefore, setting an
appropriate delay allows you to write comfortably.
7.
When you have all of your settings adjusted, tap
8.
Tap
14.5
again to start using Transcriber.
Editing text
In addition to its remarkable recognition capabilities,
Transcriber features some advanced editing tools:
§
Iconbar editing functions
§
Control gestures.
206
.
14.5.1 Using the iconbar functions
You can select a number of functions from the Transcriber
iconbar. These functions are summarised as follows:
Icon
Description
Control of Writing Orientation Tap this
icon to change the screen orientation.
This allows you to write at a comfortable
angle without sacrificing recognition
accuracy.
Recognition Mode Tap this icon to have
Transcriber recognize in upper case,
lower case or numbers.
Microsoft Transcriber Keyboard Tap
this icon to display the Microsoft
Transcriber Keyboard.
Letter Shape Selector Tap this icon to
access the Letter Shape Selector, a way to
tailor Transcriber to your own personal
handwriting style. Please refer to the
section below for a more thorough
explanation.
Help Tap on this icon to display the
Transcriber help menu.
Close Tap on this icon to close the
Transcriber Iconbar.
207
Control of Writing Orientation
Use Control of Writing Orientation to help Transcriber
recognize your handwriting if you write at an angle. You
can also use it if you find it more comfortable to write on
the screen with it in a landscape position.
208
Recognition mode
The recognition mode icon has three modes, lower case,
upper case and numerical. If the Iconbar shows the lower
case “a”, then Transcriber will recognize both upper and
lower case, capitalizing at the beginning of a sentence. The
capital “A” denotes that Transcriber is in the upper case
mode. Transcriber will recognize your writing as all upper
case text. Transcriber numerical mode is helpful when
writing math equations.
Microsoft Transcriber Keyboard
The Microsoft Transcriber Keyboard can be used for
punctuation and special symbols. Simply tap on the
punctuation you wish to insert. The character will be
inserted at the point of the cursor. You can lock it in place
by tapping the “pin” button in the upper left corner. To
close the keyboard, tap the Close button (X) in the upper
right corner of the keyboard.
209
Letter Shape Selector
The Letter Shape Selector allows you to tailor
Transcriber’s recognition to suit your unique writing style.
This helps improve both the speed and accuracy of
recognition.
You may access Letter Shape Selector from the Transcriber
Iconbar.
The Letter Shape Selector screen presents various means of
writing numbers, letters, and common symbols. For each
letter, number, or symbol, tap each possible variation to see
the animated writing pattern and check the appropriate box
to tell Transcriber if you use that variation Often, Rarely,
or Never. You may tap the letter, number, or symbol you
wish to customise, or you may use the scroll arrows to
210
move through the list. Disabling unused letter forms helps
Microsoft Transcriber work faster and more accurately,
since the program will not have to search for unused letter
shapes. For example, if you do not use a triangle-shaped
“A” as a lower case letter, check Never. This helps
Microsoft Transcriber select the right capitalisation, as it
will now consider this shape to be a capital “A” most of the
time. Close Letter Shape Selector when finished by tapping
the OK button in the upper right corner. Your settings are
automatically saved.
If you accidentally enter erroneous settings, you can tap
File>Use Original Settings to restore the factory defaults.
You may use two sets of settings: Master and Guest. This
allows you to share your Windows CE device with another
person and tailor Transcriber to each unique style of
writing. To select a list, tap File>Master or File>Guest.
14.5.2 Using control gestures
Control gestures are specially shaped strokes that signal
Transcriber to perform the appropriate edit functions. You
may use gestures for common operations such as pressing
the Enter and Backspace keys. The desired action will be
applied at the current cursor location.
Note You do not need to draw the arrows that appear on
the gesture depictions. They merely serve to illustrate the
direction that a particular gesture is made. Gray arrows
next to a gesture also depict the proper method of drawing
the gesture.
Enter gesture
211
This gesture is the functional equivalent of pressing
ENTER. This action occurs at the current cursor location.
Space gesture
This gesture is the functional equivalent of pressing
SPACE. This action occurs at the current cursor location.
Tab gesture
This gesture is the functional equivalent of pressing TAB.
This action occurs at the current cursor location.
Backspace gesture
Draw the line from right to left. This gesture is the
functional equivalent of pressing BACKSPACE.
Quick correct gesture
Draw the line straight down then retrace the same line back
up.
212
§
If a word is highlighted, the menu will prompt you to
either add the selected word to the dictionary (if it is
not already in either the main dictionary or the user
specific dictionary) or to select an alternative word
from the list.
§
If no word is selected, the Quick Correct gesture opens
the Microsoft Transcriber Keyboard.
Case change gesture
Highlight the desired letter, word or block of text. Use this
gesture to change a letter’s case.
Undo gesture
Undoes the previous action. It is the equivalent of pressing
CTRL+Z in most Windows applications.
Copy gesture
Copies highlighted text to the Windows Clipboard while
leaving the original text in place. It is the equivalent of
pressing CTRL+C in most Windows applications.
213
Cut gesture
This gesture removes highlighted text from the current
application and places it in the Windows Clipboard. It is
the equivalent of pressing CTRL+X in most Windows
applications.
Paste gesture
This gesture copies text previously placed in the Windows
Clipboard into the current application while leaving the text
available in the Clipboard for repeat pasting, if desired. It is
the equivalent of pressing CTRL+V in most Windows
applications.
14.6
Selecting text
Because Transcriber tries to recognize all strokes as
handwriting, you must modify the stroke to select and drag
text. There are two ways to do this:
§
Tap and hold the stylus still for a moment until you
hear a sound. At the sound, Transcriber suspends
recognition activities, and your stylus may be used as a
mouse functions. Drag the stylus across the text you
wish to select, just as you would with a mouse.
§
Draw a line across the desired text then hold the pen or
mouse for a moment. The desired block will be
highlighted, and the stroke you used to select the text
will disappear.
214
14.7
Using the alternative list
The alternative list can be used as a faster method to correct
an error if Transcriber does not recognize a word. Simply
highlight the incorrect word and use the Quick Correct
Gesture, a vertical line from top to bottom and retracing the
line back to the top. (See “Using control gestures” for an
example.) This will bring up the alternative list. Tap the
correct word and Transcriber automatically replaces the
highlighted text with your choice from the list.
Click here to
substitute
“brown” for
“frown”
215
14.8
Adding words to the dictionary
If a word does not already exist in the dictionary, bringing
up the alternative list gives you the option of adding it to
the dictionary. For instance, the city of Anchorage was not
listed in the original dictionary. By bringing up the
alternative list, you can choose to add it to the dictionary:

highlighted
word to the

this software, and you will never accidentally lose ROM
contents. Programs and data files added after factory
installation are stored in RAM (random access memory).
You can install any program created for the WA 3050 as
long as the device has enough memory. The most popular
place to find software for Pocket PCs is on the World Wide
237
Web. Be sure that you have a backup copy of a program if
you remove it in case you want to re-install it later.

Managing resources
Almost as important as learning how to access and use the
programs on the WA 3050 is a familiarity with some basic
tools for managing system resources to stay productive and
prevent problems before they occur. These tools help you
to do the following:
§
Manage power sources
§
Adjust storage and program memory
§
Manage SMS and faxes
§
Stop or activate running programs
§
Back up and restore data.
As part of managing resources, you can also monitor your
phone usage to keep track of costs and estimate how much
airtime you are using each month.
16.1
Managing power
Because the data you save and any programs you install on
the WA 3050 are stored in RAM, it is extremely important
to maintain a continuous source of power to your device. If
you allow both the main battery and backup battery to
become drained of power, you will lose all of the
information you have entered.
Check battery power levels periodically to avoid running
low. If warning messages are displayed, be sure to respond
to them promptly to recharge the main battery and replace
the backup battery when necessary. Just connect the
WA 3050 to external power to recharge the main battery
automatically. The amber status LED flashes while the
battery is charging and remains lit when it is fully charged.
243
If you cannot connect to external power, turn off your
device to conserve energy until you can connect to it.
Warning Your WA 3050 device contains a lithium-ion
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.
Your device also contains a coin-cell lithium battery. The
same precautions apply to handling this battery. There is a
danger of explosion and risk of personal injury if this
battery is incorrectly replaced or mistreated. Do not attempt
to recharge it, disassemble it, or immerse it in water or
dispose of in fire. Replace the coin-cell battery only with
the battery designated for this product. Dispose of used
batteries properly.
A simple way to conserve power is to turn off the backlight
whenever your device is idle. You can do this by holding
down the PDA power ON/OFF button. You can also
adjust an interval after which the backlight is automatically
turned off. Review the procedures for adjusting the
backlight and power settings in “Customizing system
settings”.
Tip When you finish making a call, press the PDA power
ON/OFF button to turn off the display and save power.
The phone will still be on and you will be able to receive
incoming calls.
To check power levels
§

Tap
, Settings. On the System tab, tap Power.
16.2 Adjusting storage and program
memory
Windows automatically manages the allocation of storage
and program memory on your device. More memory may
be used for storage as you install additional programs and
generate data files. Programs accessed the least of all
programs residing in memory are closed automatically as
new programs are opened.
Note Specialized software that communicates with the
phone and PDA components prevents Windows from
closing the phone application automatically as part of
memory management. Once you turn it on, your phone is
available for making or receiving calls until you turn it off
or it loses power.
Sometimes the operating system may not be able to adjust
the memory allocation, and a message may appear
informing you that memory is low or unavailable. When
this occurs, you can try one or more of the following to
increase storage memory temporarily:
§
Manually adjust the amount of storage and program
memory
§
Install a CompactFlash memory card and move files
from storage to the card
§
Delete files you no longer need or transfer them to
your PC or notebook computer
§
Move e-mail attachments to a storage card
§
Periodically check the WinPhone Inbox, Outbox, and
Sent folders to delete SMS messages and faxes you no
longer need (see “Managing SMS and faxes”)
§
In EzWAP, select options to clear history and
temporary files
245
§
Remove Web pages stored for offline viewing
(Active Channels)
§
Minimize memory used by mobile favorites (see
“Mobile favorites”)
§
In Pocket Internet Explorer options, delete all files and
clear history
§
Remove programs you no longer use (see “Adding or
removing programs ”)
§
Clear program memory by stopping some programs ,
which clears some storage memory so that it can be
reallocated as program memory, or by resetting your
device (see “Resetting your device and clearing
memory”).

Managing SMS and faxes
Copies of SMS messages and faxes are stored in memory
on your device. If you do not move them to another system
or delete them, incoming messages and faxes are retained
in the WinPhone Inbox, and any unsent messages or faxes
accumulate in the WinPhone Outbox. Copies of items that
have been sent are retained in the Sent folder.
To keep memory from becoming cluttered with information
you no longer need, periodically check the WinPhone
Inbox to review and delete messages and faxes you have

Backing up and restoring data
To prevent loss of data, it is essential that you transfer or
backup files periodically to a CompactFlash card or to
external storage on a PC or notebook computer. In any
case, SAGEM cannot be responsible for the loss (partial or
otherwise) of your data. If you do not use your device for
an extended period, be careful about the level of the backup
battery. If the backup battery is low, SAGEM cannot be
responsible for any loss of your data.
When your device is connected to a PC or notebook
computer, you can use File Explorer to copy files between
the WA 3050 and the computer by dragging icons to or
from the Mobile Device window. This is a quick way to
make a backup copy of a document you are working on.
Backups using ActiveSync provide a comprehensive
approach to data protection and retrieval. The backup file
can be created automatically each time you connect to your
PC or notebook computer. It is stored on your computer
and contains all the files, databases, PIM information, and
copies of any programs you have installed on the
WA 3050.

Appendix A: Troubleshooting
This chapter contains troubleshooting information that can
help you to solve problems you might experience when
using your WA 3050 device. It also has a tips section that
may help you to get better service from your device.
If you are unable to solve a particular problem, see
“Finding Information”. The various documents and
websites listed there may have the information you need to
solve the problem.
If you encounter a problem that you cannot solve, contact
SAGEM technical support or your service provider for
assistance.
A.1 Resetting your device and clearing
memory
If your device responds slowly, stops responding as
expected, or “freezes,” try resetting it. A reset causes the
WA 3050 to restart and re-adjust memory allocation.
Unsaved data in open windows may be lost.
To reset your device
§
Use the stylus to press and hold the Reset button for
about two seconds.
Note Do not turn off the PDA component when
resetting your device. Power must remain on in order
to reset it.
If you forget your password for accessing PDA features or
want to clear all data from the WA 3050 and return it to its
factory settings, you should clear the memory.
254
Caution Clearing memory deletes all data and restores
the WA 3050 to its default settings. Any data you have
created and any programs you have installed are erased.
To clear memory
1.
Disconnect the WA 3050 from external power.
2.
Turn over the device.
3.
Remove first the main battery, then the backup battery.
4.
Wait at least one minute, then replace both batteries.
5.
Turn over your device, then press the PDA power
ON/OFF button to restart it.
6.
Run through the Welcome Wizard again to reestablish
your system and calibration settings.

available so that if you need to clear memory, you can
restore the data. See “Backing up programs and data” and
the ActiveSync help on your PC or notebook computer.
A.2
Battery loses power
When the batteries are low, you will see a battery icon in
the status bar of the Today screen. Replace or recharge low
batteries as soon as possible. If the main battery is
discharged, your data will be preserved by the backup
battery. If the backup battery is discharged, you may lose
data.
Warning Do not disassemble, crush, puncture, short
external contacts, or dispose of the main battery pack 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.
255
Similarly, do not attempt to recharge the coin-cell lithium
(backup) battery, disassemble it, or immerse it in water or
dispose of in fire. Replace only with the battery designated
for this product. Dispose of used batteries properly.
Caution Do not leave the main battery in a fully
discharged state, especially if you are not using your
device for extended periods of time. You may lose data if
the backup battery becomes discharged.
You want your battery charge to last as long as possible,
especially when you are travelling. Under normal
conditions, you can get many hours of use from a full
charge. Refer to the following tips to help you get the most
from them:
Use external power whenever possible
Use the adapter to connect the WA 3050 to external power
whenever possible, especially when:
§

266
Appendix B: Character Recognizer
Using Character Recognizer, you can write characters
directly on your device screen with your stylus, just as you
would on a piece of paper. The characters you write are
translated into typed text. Use Character Recognizer
anywhere you want to enter text, for example to write a
note or to fill in fields in a dialog box.
The Character Recognizer input panel is divided into three
writing areas. Letters written in the left area (labeled ABC)
will create uppercase letters, even if you write them in
lowercase, and letters written in the middle area (labeled
abc) will create lowercase letters, even if you write them in
uppercase. The right area (labeled 123) is for writing
numbers, symbols, special characters, and punctuation.
267
By default, Character Recognizer will recognize letters
written in lowercase (Jot-compatible) form. The following
is a partial chart of the characters you can write (the dot is
the starting point). Remember that even though you write a
letter in its lowercase form, the case of the text that is
displayed depends on where you write the letter. For
example, if you write a lowercase “a” in the ABC area, an
uppercase “A” is displayed on the screen.
268
For a demonstration of each character, tap
on the
Character Recognizer input panel and then tap Demo.
Tip If you prefer to write in uppercase (Graffiticompatible) form, choose Uppercase Mode in Options on
the input method menu.
269
B.1
Tips for writing characters
While in lowercase mode, the dotted midline and the solid
baseline on the writing panel are used to help Character
Recognizer correctly translate shorter letters and letters
with descenders or ascenders:
§
Write letters such as “o” and “c” between the midline
and baseline.
§
Write descenders below the baseline. For example,
write the top of a “p” between the midline and
baseline, and extend the descender below the baseline.
§
Write ascenders above the midline. For example, write
the ascender of a “b” above the midline, and write the
bottom of a “b” between the midline and baseline.
§
In addition to the 123 area, you can use the Symbols
keyboard to enter punctuation marks and symbols. Tap
and tap the desired character.
For more information on using Character Recognizer and
for demonstrations on writing all characters, tap
Character Recognizer input panel.
