Add Tele-typewriter (TTY) functionality
Add TTY functionality for people who are hearing impaired or
hard-of-hearing
HP iPAQ products support Tele-typewriter (TTY) functionality, which allows people who are hearing
impaired or with hearing limitations to communicate using existing telephony infrastructure, including
cell phones. To achieve this, separately purchased TTY devices must be connected to the telephones
on both ends of a telephone call session, and the HP iPAQ must be configured for TTY use. The sending
TTY device generates a distinct audio tone for every supported character, and these tones are decoded
and converted back into text on the receiving TTY device.
Due to the use of audio compression codecs in modern digital cell phones, these TTY audio tones might
be unintentionally distorted while being transmitted through cell phones. Therefore, in order for TTY
devices to continue to work in cellular networks, the cell phone must be set into a mode that optimizes
the compression codec to handle TTY tones instead of the human voice.
To use TTY with the HP iPAQ, an optional TTY audio adapter must be plugged into the HP iPAQ headset
connector. This TTY audio adapter converts the pin-out of the headset connector, which is designed for
a wired ear bud and stereo headphones, to the pin-out required by most TTY devices. To purchase the
TTY audio adapter (part number: FA709BAC3), visit http://www.hp.com > Handhelds &
Calculators > Options and Accessories.
NOTE: Because the HP iPAQ does not support internal Cellular Text Telephone Modem (CTM)
conversion, the TTY device you use must contain CTM conversion, or you must use an external CTM
adapter between the HP iPAQ and the TTY device.
For information on connecting TTY devices or CTM adapters to the HP iPAQ, refer to the TTY device
or CTM adapter manufacturer’s documentation.
HP is committed to developing products, services and information that are accessible to everyone,
including people with disabilities or age-related limitations. For more information, visit
http://www.hp.com/accessibility.

remains enabled on the HP iPAQ until you disable it.

Install a SIM card before making your first phone call.
When the phone call is answered, start typing on the TTY keyboard.
The letters typed into the TTY device are turned into electrical signals that travel over regular
telephone lines. When the signals reach their destination (another TTY device), they are converted
back into letters that appear on a display screen, are printed on paper, or both.
When you are finished typing your phone conversation, the person on the other end of the line
might begin typing their answers or comments to you.
4.
To end the phone call, press and hold the
(End) key.
NOTE: If a normal headset is connected while TTY support is enabled, the audio quality might

12 Messaging
Understand messages
To send and receive e-mail messages for an e-mail account, you need to connect to the Internet or your
corporate network, depending on the account.
You can send and receive:
●
Outlook e-mail
●
Internet e-mail through an Internet Service Provider (ISP)
●
Text messages
You can also access e-mail from work using a VPN connection. For more information, see Set up a VPN
server connection on page 82
E-mail in the Outlook e-mail account is sent and received through synchronization with a computer using
any synchronizing software or through wireless synchronization directly with an Exchange Server.
Internet e-mail is sent and received by connecting to a Post Office Protocol 3 (POP3) or Internet
Message Access Protocol 4 (IMAP4) e-mail server. When connecting to a POP3 or IMAP4 server, you
will need to get internet connectivity, from the carrier GSM, GPRS, EDGE or a 3G connectivity. Also
connectivity can be using Wi-Fi Wireless, Peer-to-Peer with a PC or Bluetooth to an internet connected
device. You can also use your HP iPAQ to connect by using a data capable cell phone.
Text messages are sent and received through your wireless service provider using a phone number as
the message address.
Folder types
Each messaging account has its own set of folders with five default Messaging folders:
●
Inbox
●
Outbox
●
Deleted Items
●
Drafts
●
Sent Items
The messages you receive and send through the account are stored in these folders. You can also
create additional folders for each account.
The way folders work vary by type:
●
If you use an Outlook e-mail account, e-mail messages in the Inbox folder in Outlook are
synchronized automatically with your device. You can select additional folders for synchronization
by assigning them designations. The folders you create and the messages you move are then
mirrored on the e-mail server.
●
If you use an MMS account or a text message account, messages are stored in the Inbox folder.
Understand messages
53
●
If you use a POP3 account and move your e-mail messages to a folder you created, the link
between the messages on the device and their copies on the e-mail server breaks. When you
connect, the e-mail server detects that the messages are missing from the Inbox folder on the
device 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.
●
If you use an IMAP4 account, the folders you create and the e-mail messages you move are
mirrored on the e-mail server. These messages are therefore available from any location or device.
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.
Synchronize e-mail
When you synchronize Outlook e-mail on the 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 is deleted from your computer or Exchange Server
the next time you synchronize.
●
The default sync settings synchronize messages from the past three days and the first 0.5 KB of
each new message is downloaded. It does not download file attachments.
NOTE: For more information on starting Outlook e-mail synchronization or changing synchronization
settings, see ActiveSync Help on the computer.
Text messages are not received via synchronization. Instead, they are sent to your device via your
service provider.

TIP: Embedded pictures and objects cannot be received as attachments.
An embedded message can be viewed as an attachment when using IMAP4 to receive e-mail. However,
this feature does not work if Transport Neutral Encapsulation Format (TNEF) is enabled so that you can
receive meeting requests.
To store attachments on a storage card rather than on the device, press the left softkey > Menu >
Options > Storage, and select the When available, use this storage card to store attachment check
box.
Receive meeting requests
If you receive your e-mail messages through ActiveSync, you can receive meeting requests. When
connecting directly to an e-mail server, the server must be running Microsoft Exchange Server
version 5.5 or later for you to receive meeting requests.
If the server is running Microsoft Exchange Server 2000 or later, your meeting requests are automatically
received in your Inbox. However, to receive meeting requests on Microsoft Exchange Server 5.5, do the
following:
●
Ask your system administrator to activate Rich Text Format (RTF) and TNEF support for your
account.
With TNEF enabled, your messages that are included in other messages as attachments are not
received, and you cannot know if a message has an attachment until you get the full copy. In
addition, download time might be longer.
●
Change e-mail download options if your account is not set up to receive attachments.
After you are set up to receive meeting requests, do the following:
1.
Open the meeting request.
2.
Tap Accept, or Menu > Tentative, or Menu > Decline. If you want, you can also include a message
with the response. The response will be sent the next time that you synchronize or connect to your
e-mail server, and your device calendar will be updated.

Download messages
The manner in which you download messages depends on the type of account you have:
●
To send and receive e-mail for an Outlook e-mail account, begin synchronization through
ActiveSync.
●
Text messages are automatically received when your HP iPAQ phone mode is switched on. When
your HP iPAQ is switched off (in flight mode), messages are held by your service provider until the
next time your HP iPAQ is turned on.
TIP: By default, messages you send are not saved on your device to help conserve memory. If you
want to keep copies of sent messages in the messaging list, tap Menu > Options > Message, and
select the Keep copies of sent items in Sent folder check box. If your account is an Outlook e-mail
or IMAP4 account, you must also select the Sent Items folder for synchronization. To do this, press the
left softkey > Outlook E-mail, and then tap Menu > Tools > Manage Folders… and select the check
box next to the Sent Items folder.
Download messages from a server
To download messages from a server:
1.
From any account, tap Menu > Go To and tap the account you want to use.
2.
Tap Menu > Send/Receive.
The messages on your device and e-mail server are synchronized. New messages are downloaded
to the device Inbox folder, messages in the device Outbox folder are sent, and messages that
have been deleted from the server are removed from the device Inbox folder.
TIP: To read the entire message, tap Menu > Download Message while in the message window. If
you are in the message list, tap and hold the message, and then tap Menu > Download Message. The
message will download the next time you send and receive e-mail. This will also download message
attachments if you have selected those options while setting up your e-mail account.
The size column in the message list displays the local size and server size of a message. These numbers
might differ because the size of a message can vary between the server and the device.
Install an online address book
Many e-mail servers, including servers running Exchange Server, can verify names with an online
address book called a directory service, using a protocol known as Lightweight Directory Access
Protocol (LDAP). When you create an e-mail account, the directory service of your e-mail server is added
to the Address, and you are given the option to enable it. After it is enabled, Messaging checks your
contact list and then the directory service to verify names that you enter in the To, Cc, and Bcc fields.
To enable a directory service or if you want to use additional services, follow these steps:
1.
If you are adding a new account, ask your network administrator for the name of the directory
service and the server.
2.
In the message list, tap Menu > Tools > Options > Address.
3.
In the In Contacts, get e-mail addresses from list, select which e-mail address book to check in
contacts. Contacts will be checked first unless you select None.
4.
If your e-mail server is already listed, select the server's directory service check box to enable it
and tap ok.
5.
If your e-mail service is not listed, tap Add…
Install an online address book
61
6.
In the Directory name and Server boxes, enter the LDAP directory and server names.
7.
Ask your network administrator if authentication is necessary for your server. If so, select the
Authentication is necessary on this server check box, and enter your user name and password.
8.
To have messaging check this service, select the Check name against this server check box.
TIP: To delete a service, tap and hold the service, and then tap Delete.
While synchronizing your Outlook e-mail account, disable any directory services you have installed by
clearing the Check name against this server check box. This helps avoid getting error messages when
Messaging tries to verify names against the service that you are not connected to.

GPRS/EDGE/HSDPA
GPRS/EDGE
GPRS/EDGE technology provides a connection to the Mobile Phone Network that can be used for Web
browsing, MMS messaging, or accessing your corporate network.
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 HP iPAQ defaults to GPRS.
HSDPA
High Speed Download Packet Access (HSDPA) is an enhancement of Wideband Code Division Multiple
Access (WCDMA) which is based on 3G technology, and offers better data compression. Your HP iPAQ
supports HSDPA 3.6 to 7.2 mbps that uses WCDMA for high speed downloads. HP iPAQ also supports
WCDMA over three different frequency bands (850/1900/2100). When WCDMA or HSDPA is available,
the device uses the technology and reverts back to GSM/GPRS/EDGE if WCDMA or HSDPA is
unavailable. Your HP iPAQ also supports WCDMA/HSDPA in three different frequency bands
(850/1900/2100).l
Differences between GSM and GPRS/EDGE/WCDMA/3G technology
GSM technology is typically used for voice calls and text messaging, whereas GPRS/EDGE/WCDMA/
3G technology provides a connection to the Mobile Phone Network that can be used for Web browsing,
Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS), or accessing your corporate network.
NOTE: Using GPRS/EDGE/WCDMA/3G data services are typically an additional charge to your
standard mobile phone service. Check with your mobile phone service provider for data services and
cost.
Configure GPRS network settings
The first time you use your SIM card, HP iPAQ DataConnect automatically detects the phone network
and operator and sets up the GPRS connection information for you. You can change these settings to
suit your preference or create your own network settings.

Airline Travel Notice
Use of electronic equipment aboard commercial aircraft is at the discretion of the airline.
Medical Electronic Equipment
If you have a medical condition that requires you to use a pacemaker, hearing aid, or any type of medical
electronic equipment, consult the manufacturer of the equipment to determine if the medical equipment
is shielded from RF energy. Turn off your HP iPAQ in health care facilities or hospitals when there are
posted restrictions requiring you to do so.
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.
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.
The non-FCC 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.
