Battery saving tips
You can adjust the settings on your HP iPAQ to fit your individual needs and to help your battery last
as long as possible between charges. Here are some recommendations to conserve battery life:
●
Connect to AC power – Leave your HP iPAQ connected to AC power at all possible times
when not using it. HP also offers a variety of accessories to keep your HP iPAQ charged when
you are out of the office for extended time periods. These include the mini-USB synchronization
cable and travel adapter.
Important: Always use original HP batteries and chargers to charge your HP iPAQ.
●
Disable Sounds – Every time you are notified of an event, battery power is consumed. Tap
Start > Settings > Personal > Sounds & Notifications to turn off any unnecessary
notifications.
●
Auto Turn Off the Backlight – Tap Start > Settings > System > Backlight. Specify a short
amount of wait before turning off the backlight. On the Battery Power tab, set Turn off
backlight if device is not used for to 10 seconds.
●
Turn off Bluetooth and Wi-Fi – Always turn off Bluetooth and Wi-Fi when not in use. To turn
off Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, tap Start > Settings > Connections > Wireless Manager, and then
tap the respective option to turn it off.
●
Reduce push e-mail synchronization frequency – Every time your HP iPAQ uses push
e-mail to send and receive e-mail, your HP iPAQ drains the battery. You should increase the
duration between synchronization cycles to reduce the number of times your HP iPAQ syncs
with the e-mail server. To change the duration, see Change e-mail download options
on page 60.
●
Adjust ActiveSync settings – When ActiveSync receives updates, it uses your HP iPAQ's
cellular radio to connect to an Exchange Server, which consumes battery power.
To check the battery power, tap Start > Settings > System > Power or tap
the Today screen.

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.
Copy all contacts from your HP iPAQ to a SIM
33
To purchase the TTY audio adapter (part number: FA709BAC3), visit http://www.hp.com, and then
go to Home and Home office > Handhelds & Calculators > iPAQ accessories.
NOTE: As 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.
Enable TTY support
NOTE: Before enabling TTY support on the HP iPAQ, connect a headset into the headset
connector or the setting reverts back to disabled. For example, plug in the optional TTY audio adapter
into the ear bud jack first, as described below. Once you enable TTY support, you can remove the
headset and TTY remains enabled on the HP iPAQ until you disable it.
To enable TTY support:
1.
Connect the TTY device to the TTY audio adapter.
2.
Connect the TTY audio adapter to the headset connector on the HP iPAQ.

Wireless synchronization cost saving tips
How you manage the cost of synchronizing without wires from your HP iPAQ depends on your
priorities.
To
Do this
Reduce network connection or data transfer costs
Increase the time between scheduled synchronizations, or
synchronize manually. Check the details of your rate plan.
Extend battery life
Schedule synchronization less frequently or synchronize
manually.
Keep your information up to date
During periods of high mail volume, schedule
synchronization at regular but frequent intervals. During
periods of low mail volume, schedule synchronization as
items arrive.
NOTE: The HP iPAQ power-down timer is reset each time you synchronize. If you schedule a
synchronization interval that is smaller than the time interval set for the HP iPAQ to automatically
power down, the HP iPAQ never turns off to save battery power.

11 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/MMS 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 86
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 a 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 HP iPAQ. 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
57
●
If you use a POP3 account and move your e-mail messages to a folder you created, the link
between the messages on the HP iPAQ 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 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.
●
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 HP iPAQ, 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 HP iPAQ.
●
Messages in the Outbox folder on your HP iPAQ are transferred to Exchange Server or Outlook
and then sent from those programs.
●
When you delete a message on your HP iPAQ, 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 the synchronization software's help on the computer.
Text messages are not received via synchronization. Instead, they are sent to your HP iPAQ via your
service provider.

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.

●
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 HP iPAQ 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,

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 HP iPAQ.
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 > 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…
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
Your HP iPAQ is a 3.5G device that supports high and better data throughput. It supports HSDPA
known as 3.5G to transmit data, WCDMA known as 3G to transmit voice and data, EDGE known as
2.75G to transmit data, GPRS known as 2.5G to transmit data, and GSM known as 2G to transmit
voice.
HSDPA
High Speed Download Packet Access (HSDPA), also known as 3.5G, is an enhancement of
Wideband Code Division Multiple Access (WCDMA) which is based on 3G technology, and offers
better data throughput. Your HP iPAQ supports HSDPA 3.6 to 7.2 Mbps for high speed downloads.
HP iPAQ also supports WCDMA over three different frequency bands (850/1900/2100). When
WCDMA or HSDPA is available, the HP iPAQ 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).
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.
Differences between GSM and GPRS/EDGE/WCDMA/HSDPA technology
GSM technology is typically used for voice calls and text messaging, whereas GPRS/EDGE/
WCDMA/HSDPA technology provides a data 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/HSDPA 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.

To verify Internet access on the HP iPAQ:
●
Visit a Web site such as http://www.hp.com. If you do not have an Internet connection and GPRS
service, Internet Explorer displays an error message. Please check with your service provider
or wireless operator to confirm if the data connection1, 2, 3 on your device is enabled1, 2, 3.
NOTE: 1 – A standard GSM/GPRS/EDGE/UMTS/HSDPA infrastructure, Wi-Fi or other Bluetoothenabled devices, separately purchased equipment, and a service contract with a wireless airtime
provider may be required for applicable wireless communication. Wireless Internet access requires
separately purchased Internet service contract. Check with service provider for availability and
coverage in your area. Not all Web content might be available. Wireless transmission speeds may
vary based upon network capabilities and other conditions. Establishment and continuation of a
wireless connection depends on network availability, provider support, and signal strength.
2 – EDGE is a global standard for wireless wide-area data communication being rapidly deployed
by GSM carriers worldwide. Actual download speeds may vary. Coverage is subject to transmission
limitations and terrain, system, capacity, and other limitations. Not all features and service options
are available in all areas.
3 – Telephone service requires separately purchased contract with a service provider with coverage
in your service area. Additional fees may apply for some features, check with your service provider.
Verify the Date and Time
Verify the correct date and time on your HP iPAQ. If the date and time are not correct, tap the Clock
icon on the Today screen to set the date and time.
Download the HP iPAQ GPS QK Position Data File
While the GPS radio on your device is able to connect to the GPS satellites without enabling the

To improve GPS connection performance on HP iPAQ GPS enabled device, you need to download
the latest HP iPAQ GPS QK Position data file.
Even though GPS on your HP iPAQ is able to connect to the GPS satellites without enabling the
HP iPAQ GPS QK Position utility, it may take a few minutes longer and even up to five minutes to
locate the satellites if you do not use this utility.
Since the GPS satellite data update files are small, you should be able to download them with a little
or no impact to device performance. However, you need to buy a wireless data plan (GPRS, EDGE,
UMTS, HSDPA, or Wi-Fi) from your service provider before you can use this feature and GPRS
connection charges may apply. Check with your service provider to see if additional charges apply.
Troubleshoot Frequent GPS Signal Loss
To improve the satellite signal to the GPS enabled HP iPAQ, go outdoors and start the GPS
navigation software. Place the HP iPAQ where there is a clear view of the sky or on the dashboard
of a vehicle that does not have thermal glass windshields or windows. A direct line of sight is required
between the HP iPAQ and the GPS satellites to access information from the satellites.
NOTE: Interference might take place close to tall buildings, large trees, and under very cloudy or
overcast skies, all of which can block the satellite signal from reaching the HP iPAQ. Try to avoid
these obstructions before using GPS.

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 mW/g*. 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 non-FCC SAR value for this device when tested
for use at the ear is 0.785 mW/g (10 g).
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.
130 Chapter 19 Regulatory notices
* The non-FCC SAR limit for mobile devices used by the public is 2.0 milliwatts/gram (mW/g)
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. No metallic body accessories are allowed and 2.0 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 1.090 mW/g and when tested for use at the body is 1.180 mW/g. This PDA must not be
co-located or operating in conjunction with any other antenna or transmitter.
Notices
Hearing Aid Compatibility with Mobile Phones.
When some mobile phones are used near some hearing devices (hearing aids and cochlear
implants), users may detect a buzzing, humming, or whining noise. Some hearing devices are more
immune than others to this interference noise, and phones also vary in the amount of interference
they generate.
The wireless telephone industry has developed ratings for some of their mobile phones, to assist
hearing device users in finding phones that may be compatible with their hearing devices. Not all
phones have been rated. Phones that are rated have the rating on their box or a label on the box.
The ratings are not guarantees. Results will vary depending on the user’s hearing device and hearing
loss. If your hearing device happens to be vulnerable to interference, you may not be able to use a
rated phone successfully. Trying out the phone with your hearing device is the best way to evaluate
it for your personal needs.
M-Ratings: Phones rated M3 or M4 meet FCC requirements and are likely to generate less
interference to hearing devices than phones that are not labeled. M4 is the better/higher of the two
ratings.
T-Ratings: Phones rated T3 or T4 meet FCC requirements and are likely to be more usable with a
hearing device’s telecoil (“T Switch” or “Telephone Switch”) than unrated phones. T4 is the better/
higher of the two ratings. (Note that not all hearing devices have telecoils in them.)
Hearing devices may also be measured for immunity to this type of interference. Your hearing device
manufacturer or hearing health professional may help you find results for your hearing device. The
more immune your hearing aid is, the less likely you are to experience interference noise from mobile
phones.
Wireless Notices 131
Canadian Regulatory Wireless Notice
