●
Backup cannot be used to restore individual files.
●
An SD memory card can only store one archive per device. If you wish to keep old archives,
you’ll need to use a different SD memory card for each archive.
●
For added security, remove the SD memory card after archiving a device and store the card
somewhere safe. You may want to note the date of the archive and, if you have more than one
device, the device name.

Unlock SIM Card
Your SIM card has a security feature that locks it if the PIN is entered incorrectly three times. To
unlock your SIM card, you will need the PIN Unlock Key (PUK). You have received your PUK from
your mobile operator at the time of purchase of the SIM card. This PUK code allows you to reset your
SIM card and create a new PIN for it.
When you enter a wrong PIN three times, you will be asked to enter the following information:
**05*YourPUK*YourNewPIN*YourNewPIN#
Make sure that you enter the required information exactly as instructed. Instead of the placeholders
(YourPUK, YourNewPIN), you will enter your PUK code from the mobile operator and a new PIN
code that you define yourself.
If you have lost your PUK, contact your mobile operator for help.

Data connection types
Your AirLife supports different types of 2G and 3G connection standards over cellular networks as
well as Wi-Fi. The table below provides brief information about the connection standards supported
by your AirLife and the features each standard provides:
Connection Standard
Technology Generation

Wi-Fi
802.11b/g
Yes
(Supports channels 1–13)
HSPA
High Speed Packet Access (HSPA), also known as 3.5G, is an enhancement of UMTS which is
based on 3G technology, and offers faster data speeds. Your AirLife supports HSPA from 3.6 to
7.2 Mbps for high speed downloads and 2 Mbps for high speed uploads. AirLife also supports HSPA
over four different frequency bands (850/900/1900/2100). When HSPA is available, AirLife uses that
technology and reverts back to UMTS or GSM/GPRS/EDGE if HSPA is unavailable.
UMTS, 3G & WCDMA
Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS) is one of the third-generation (3G) mobile
telecommunications technologies, which is also being developed into a 4G technology. The most
common form of UMTS uses WCDMA. UMTS is a complete network system, it covers the radio
access network (UMTS Terrestrial Radio Access Network, or UTRAN), the core network (Mobile
Application Part, or MAP), as well as authentication of users via USIM cards (Subscriber Identity
Module). Unlike EDGE, UMTS requires new base stations and new frequency allocations, but it is
closely related to GSM/EDGE because it borrows and builds upon concepts from GSM. Most UMTS
devices support GSM. The name UMTS is usually used in Europe. Outside of Europe, the system is
also known by other names, but is often just referred to as 3G.
GPRS/EDGE
The GPRS/EDGE technology enables the cellular network to be used for messaging, to access a
corporate network, or the Internet.
NOTE: EDGE is an enhancement to GPRS technology and enables higher speed data connections
than GPRS. This means faster phone multimedia capabilities such as sending and receiving SMS/
MMS messages, and sharing video clips. Check with your service provider to see if they support
EDGE technology. If your service provider does not support the EDGE network, the AirLife defaults to
GPRS.
96
Chapter 17 Data connection
Differences between GSM and GPRS/EDGE/HSPA technology
GSM technology is typically used for voice calls and text messaging, whereas GPRS/EDGE/HSPA
technology provides a data connection to the cellular network that can be used for web browsing,
multimedia messages, or accessing your corporate network.
Wi-Fi
Wi-Fi enabled devices such as AirLife allow you to connect to the Internet through a Wi-Fi network/
hot spot. Wi-Fi is short for Wireless Local Area Network or WLAN devices based on IEEE 802.11
standards.
NOTE: Wi-Fi is a trademark of the Wi-Fi Alliance which promotes WLAN technology and certifies
products that conform to 802.11 technology standards.

97
Advanced settings for data connections
Your AirLife’s networking capabilities allow you to access the Internet through a cellular network or WiFi. A cellular network is the same network that is provided for mobile phones. It is generally available
almost anywhere. A Wi-Fi network is a much smaller, generally 300 feet (100 meters) in distance, but
usually faster than a cellular network.
NOTE: If your network is behind a firewall, you may need to configure the advanced settings on
your AirLife to connect to the Internet or to access secured intranet sites.
Automatically connect to a cellular network
If you have already created more than one connection, you can set up your AirLife to connect to the
best available connection automatically.
When you turn on your AirLife for the first time, with the SIM card inserted, it is automatically
configured to use your mobile operator's cellular service.
NOTE:
Make sure that you have an active account before connecting to a cellular network.
View your current network connection:
1.
On the Home screen, press MENU on the keyboard, touch Settings, touch Wireless controls,
and then touch Mobile networks.

Touch Network operators or Access Point Names.
Add a new cellular network connection
When you need to add another cellular network connection on your AirLife, obtain the access point
name and settings (including user name and password if required) from your mobile operator.
1.
On the Home screen, press MENU on the keyboard, touch Settings, touch Wireless controls,

3.
On the Edit access point screen, touch an APN setting, type the setting, and then touch OK.
4.
When you have finished adding settings, press MENU on the keyboard, and then touch Save.
Automatically connect to a Wi-Fi network
To use Wi-Fi on your AirLife, you need access to a wireless access point or hotspot. The availability
and range of the Wi-Fi signal depends on the infrastructure and other objects through which the
signal passes.
Turn Wi-Fi on and connect to a network:
98
1.
On the Home screen, press MENU on the keyboard, touch Settings, and then touch Wireless
controls.
2.
To turn on Wi-Fi, select the Wi-Fi check box. Your AirLife will scan for available wireless networks.
3.
Touch Wi-Fi settings, and then touch a Wi-Fi network. If the network is secure, you need to
enter a password. The next time your AirLife connects to the network, you do not need to enter
the password again unless you reset your AirLife to its factory default settings.

Supported frequency bands
Your AirLife has an integrated GSM/GPRS/EDGE feature that supports four different frequency
bands (850/900/1800/1900) for international roaming. Your AirLife also supports UMTS/HSUPA in
four different frequency bands (850/900/1900/2100). When traveling between countries and/or
network operators, this feature automatically changes the connection settings for frequency bands if
the home band is unavailable. This feature is the default setting on your AirLife.
NOTE: Your AirLife might take several minutes, depending on the environment, to connect to the
network for the first time when roaming in another country.
To avoid problems when you are out of the country, follow these tips before you leave:
●
Visit your service provider's website to see if their service is available where you are traveling.
●
Verify if your mobile phone account is set up for international roaming and if additional charges
apply.
