●
ActiveSync chimes sound, and the ActiveSync icon on your computer changes to a swirling green
icon. The retrieving settings message appears on your computer, but the ActiveSync connection
drops prior to establishing the partnership.
●
ActiveSync is searching for a connection but cannot establish one. (The green icon on your
computer continues to spin.)
●
Synchronization has been established between your HP iPAQ and computer but connection is
dropped. (The green icon on your computer stops spinning and grays out.)
●
Firewall or other network protection software message box is displayed for ActiveSync to access
the network or Internet.
Following is a list of troubleshooting tips if you experience difficulty while synchronizing your HP iPAQ
and computer. Try the following solutions to troubleshoot any synchronization issues:
●
Check the Operating System (OS) on your computer before you begin synchronizing information
between your HP iPAQ and computer. The synchronization method varies depending on the OS
running on the computer.
If your computer is running Windows XP or an earlier version, synchronization settings are
managed through Microsoft ActiveSync. Microsoft ActiveSync 4.5 is available on the Getting
Started CD. You may also visit http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile for more information or
to download Microsoft ActiveSync.
If your computer is running Windows Vista, synchronization settings are managed through
Windows Mobile Device Center. Visit http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile to download
Windows Mobile Device Center.
NOTE: HP does not guarantee the accurate functionality of any third party applications with
Windows Vista.
●
If you are running ActiveSync 4.5 or later and personal firewall software on your computer, please
add ActiveSync to the firewall program's exception list.
(Firewall software, such as Sygate Personal Firewall, TrendMicro PC-cillin Internet Security 2005,
Norton Personal Firewall, McAfee Personal Firewall, or Zone Alarm Security Suite may block
synchronization.) Refer to the documentation that came with your firewall program to determine
how to add ActiveSync 4.5 or later to the program's exception list. To further troubleshoot a firewall
application and enable ActiveSync 4.5 or later, visit: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile.

stored in the Inbox folder.
3.
POP3 account: 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 your HP iPAQ and their copies on the e-mail server.
When you connect, the e-mail server detects that the messages are missing from the Inbox folder
on your HP iPAQ and deletes them from the e-mail server. This prevents having duplicate copies
of a message, but it also means that you no longer have access to messages that you move to
folders created from anywhere except your HP iPAQ.
4.
IMAP4 account: If you use an IMAP4 account, the folders you create and the e-mail messages
you move are mirrored on the e-mail server. Therefore, messages are available to you anytime
you connect to your e-mail server, whether it is from your HP iPAQ or computer. This
synchronization of folders occurs whenever you connect to your e-mail server, create new folders,
or rename/delete folders when connected. You can also set different download options for each
folder.
Synchronizing E-mail
When you synchronize Outlook e-mail on a computer with your device, e-mail messages are
synchronized as follows:
●
Messages in the Inbox folder on your computer or Exchange Server are copied to the Inbox folder
of the Outlook e-mail account on your device.
●
Messages in the Outbox folder on your device are transferred to Exchange Server or Outlook, and
then sent from those programs.
●
When you delete a message on your device, it gets deleted from your computer or Exchange Server
the next time you synchronize.
●
The default sync settings synchronize messages from the past three days only and the first 2 KB
of each new message is downloaded.
NOTE: Text messages are not received via synchronization. Instead, they are sent to your HP iPAQ
via your service provider.

Text Messaging
Text messaging is the transmission of short text messages to and from a mobile phone, fax machine,
and/or IP address. A single text message cannot be longer than 160 alpha-numeric characters or cannot
contain pictures or graphics.
Messages longer than 160 alpha-numeric characters are sent as multiple text messages. A character
count is visible when text messages (New/Reply/Forward) are composed. The count also shows how
many text messages are generated when the message is sent.
The Text Message Service Center phone number is provided by your mobile phone service provider.
Text messaging should function correctly after activating your account.
MMS Messaging
The Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) is a method of transmitting photographs, video clips, sound
files, and short text messages over wireless networks.
When the phone radio is turned on for the first time, the GSM/GPRS Manager application detects the
mobile phone service provider and automatically populates the MMS settings on your HP iPAQ.
It is not recommended to change the MMS settings provided by your mobile phone service provider
unless the change is requested.

SAR Notice
THIS DEVICE MEETS INTERNATIONAL GUIDELINES FOR EXPOSURE TO RADIO WAVES
Your mobile device is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed and manufactured not to exceed
the limits for exposure to radio frequency (RF) recommended by international guidelines (ICNIRP).
These limits are part of comprehensive guidelines and establish permitted levels of RF energy for the
general population. The guidelines were developed by independent scientific organizations through
periodic and thorough evaluation of scientific studies. The guidelines include a substantial safety margin
designed to assure the safety of all persons, regardless of age and health.
The exposure standard for mobile devices employs a unit of measurement known as the Specific
Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit stated in the international guidelines is 2.0 W/kg*. Tests for
SAR are conducted using standard operating positions with the device 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 of the device while operating can be well below the maximum value. This is
because the device 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 base station, the lower the power output of the device. Before a phone
model is available for sale to the public, compliance with the European R&TTE directive must be shown.
This directive includes as one essential requirement the protection of the health and the safety for the
user and any other person. The highest SAR value for this device when tested for use at the ear is
1.15 W/kg.
This device meets RF exposure guidelines when used either in the normal use position against the ear
or when positioned away from the body. When a carry case, belt clip or holder is used for body-worn
operation other than the HP belt clip supplied with the product, it should not contain metal.
Equipment Warning
75
* The SAR limit for mobile devices used by the public is 2.0 watts/kilogram (W/kg) averaged over ten
grams of body tissue. The guidelines incorporate a substantial margin of safety to give additional
protection for the public and to account for any variations in measurements. SAR values may vary
depending on national reporting requirements and the network band.
Wireless Notices
In some environments, the use of wireless devices may be restricted. Such restrictions may apply aboard
airplanes, in hospitals, near explosives, in hazardous locations, etc. If you are uncertain of the policy
that applies to the use of this device, please ask for authorization to use it prior to turning it on.
U.S. Regulatory Wireless Notice
WARNING! Exposure to Radio Frequency (RF) Radiation The radiated output power of this device
is below the FCC radio frequency exposure limits. Nevertheless, the device should be used in such a
manner that the potential for human contact during normal operation is minimized.
To avoid the possibility of exceeding the FCC radio frequency exposure limits, human proximity to the
antenna should be minimized. The Wireless LAN antenna is located in the bottom front side of the HP
iPAQ. The GSM antenna is located in the top back of the HP iPAQ. No metallic body accessories are
allowed and 1.5 cm spacing between PDA and the body must be maintained to satisfy RF Exposure.
This PDA has been tested and demonstrated compliance when Bluetooth, WLAN, and mobile phone
are transmitting simultaneously. The highest FCC SAR value for this device when tested for use at the
head is 1.233 W/kg and when tested for use at the body is 1.322 W/kg. This PDA must not be co-located
or operating in conjunction with any other antenna or transmitter.
