Battery-saving tips
Adjust the settings on your HP iPAQ to suit your needs and also help the device retain and increase the
battery's charge-retention capacity. 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 Micro-USB synchronization cable
and travel adapter.
Important: Always use original HP batteries and chargers to charge your HP iPAQ. Using other
batteries or chargers can cause loss of device functionality and possible safety hazards.
●
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.
●
Adjust e-mail synchronization frequency – Every time your HP iPAQ sends and receives e-mail,
your HP iPAQ uses the battery. You should increase the duration between synchronization cycles
to reduce the number of times your HP iPAQ synchronizes with the e-mail server. To change the
duration, see Change the e-mail download options on page 46.
●
Adjust ActiveSync settings – ActiveSync can be configured to synchronize e-mail at regular
intervals or using as items arrives using the push e-mail protocol. When using push e-mail, the
device synchronizes with the Exchange e-mail server automatically, even when in standby. This
can result in unexpected battery drain if the user is not aware that this service is running.
Alternatively, ActiveSync can be configured to synchronize at regular intervals. However, this
configuration can result in unnecessary power consumption if the device synchronizes when no
new e-mail is available.
The best configuration depends on how the device is being used. When e-mail volume is light, it
is best to have the device configured to synchronize e-mail as items arrive. However, when e-mail
volume is high, performance might improve when the device is set to synchronize at regular
intervals. To adjust the settings, tap Start > Programs > ActiveSync > Menu > Schedule.
●
Disable Sounds – Every time you are notified of an event or alert, battery power is consumed.
Tap Start > Settings > Personal > Sounds & Notifications to disable any unnecessary
notification sounds.
●
Dim the Backlight – Tap Start > Settings > System > Backlight. On the Brightness tab, adjust
the brightness settings to an acceptable level.
Battery-saving tips
27
●
Auto Turn Off the Backlight – Tap Start > Settings > System > Backlight. Specify a short
amount of wait time before turning off the backlight. On the Battery Power tab, set Turn off
backlight if device is not used for to 10 seconds.
●
Use the Power Save Mode – The Power Save Mode conserves battery, especially when your
battery power is low. For more information, see Power Save Mode on page 28.
●
Use the Light Sensor – Use the light sensor feature to automatically adjust the backlight
brightness and conserve the battery. For more information, see Adjust the brightness settings
on page 23.

Messaging
To send and receive e-mail messages using an e-mail account, you need to connect to the Internet
using GPRS or your corporate network.
You can send and receive messages in a variety of formats:
●
Microsoft® Office Outlook® Mobile e-mail
●
Internet e-mail
●
Text/MMS messages
You can also access e-mail from your workplace through a VPN connection. For more information, see
Set up a VPN server connection on page 76.
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. For
more information, see Synchronization on page 77.
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. You require Internet access from a GSM, GPRS,
EDGE, or 3G carrier to connect to a POP3 or IMAP4 Server. You can connect to the Internet using
Wi-Fi, a computer, or a Bluetooth device. To connect to the Internet through your HP iPAQ, use a
data-enabled cell phone.
Text messages are sent and received through your wireless service provider using a phone number as
the message address.
Identify the 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 varies by type:
42
●
If you use an Outlook e-mail account, e-mail messages in the Inbox folder in Outlook are
synchronized with your HP iPAQ automatically. 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.
●
If you use a POP3 account and move your e-mail messages to a folder you created, the link breaks
between the messages on the HP iPAQ and their copies on the e-mail server. When you connect,
Chapter 8 Messaging
the e-mail server detects that the messages are missing from the HP iPAQ Inbox folder and deletes
them from the e-mail server. This prevents having duplicate copies of a message, but it also means
that you do not 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. That is, they exist in both places. These messages are therefore
available from any location or device. This synchronization occurs whenever you connect to your
e-mail server, and when you create new folders, or rename or delete folders when connected. You
can also set different download options for each folder.
You can press and hold a shortcut key on the keyboard, from any folder, to perform certain tasks more
quickly.

Synchronize e-mail
When you synchronize the Outlook e-mail on the computer with your HP iPAQ, this is what happens
with e-mail messages:
●
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 synchronization settings synchronize messages from the past three days and download
the first 0.5 KB of each new message. 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 through synchronization. Instead, your service provider sends them to
your HP iPAQ.
You can modify the sync settings to set the message size to download and also download attachments.
For more information on synchronization software, see Synchronization on page 77.

received in your Inbox. However, to receive meeting requests on Microsoft Exchange Server V5.5, do
the following preparation:
●
Ask your system administrator to activate Rich Text Format (RTF) and TNEF support for your
account.
With TNEF turned on, 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

Download messages
The manner in which way you download messages depends on the type of account you have:
●
To send and receive e-mail for an Outlook e-mail account, you need to synchronize your e-mail
account using ActiveSync.
●
You can receive text messages when your HP iPAQ is switched to phone mode. When your
HP iPAQ is turned off (in flight mode), your service provider holds messages until the next time
you turn on your HP iPAQ.
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, tap Start > Messaging > Outlook E-mail, tap Menu > Tools > Manage
Folders…, and then 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 to use.
2.
Tap Menu > Send/Receive.
The messages on your HP iPAQ and e-mail server are synchronized. New messages are
downloaded to the HP iPAQ's Inbox folder, messages in the HP iPAQ's Outbox folder are sent,
and messages that have been deleted from the server are removed from the HP iPAQ's Inbox
folder.
TIP: To read the entire message, tap Menu > Download Message in the message window. In the
message list, tap and hold the message, and then tap Download Message. The message is
downloaded the next time you send and receive e-mail. Message attachments are also downloaded if
you have set 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.

Chapter 8 Messaging
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. When you create an e-mail account, the directory service of
your e-mail server is added to the address book. To enable a directory service or 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 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.
9.
Tap OK.
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.

HSPA/GPRS/EDGE
Your HP iPAQ is a 3.5G device that supports high and better data throughput. It supports HSPA known
as 3.5G to transmit voice and data at the same time, WCDMA known as 3G to transmit voice and data
at the same time, EDGE known as 2.75G to transmit data, GPRS known as 2.5G to transmit data, and
GSM known as 2G to transmit voice.
HSPA
High Speed Packet Access (HSPA), 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 HSPA 3.6 to 7.2 Mbps for high speed downloads and 2 Mbps for high speed uploads.
HP iPAQ also supports WCDMA over three different frequency bands (900/1900/2100). When WCDMA
Use Wireless Manager
65
or HSPA is available, the HP iPAQ uses the technology and reverts back to GSM/GPRS/EDGE if
WCDMA or HSPA is unavailable. Your HP iPAQ also supports WCDMA/HSPA in three different
frequency bands (900/1900/2100).
GPRS/EDGE
The GPRS/EDGE technology enables the mobile phone network to be used for messaging or to access
the corporate network or the World Wide Web.
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/HSPA technology
GSM technology is typically used for voice calls and text messaging, whereas GPRS/EDGE/WCDMA/
HSPA 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: If data services are used, they are charged additionally to your standard mobile phone service.
Check with your service provider for data services and cost.
If you have trouble with your connection, contact your service provider.

with the GPS software supplier before you purchase, download, or install any GPS navigation software
to determine that the software is compatible with your specific HP iPAQ model.
Once you have verified compatibility, purchase and install a map onto the HP iPAQ or memory card to
be able to start using the GPS navigation technology.
84
Chapter 15 Applications
NOTE: It is recommended that you download all GPS maps to a memory card that is compatible with
your HP iPAQ model. This prevents you from losing your map data due to a possible power loss or a
need to perform a clean reset on the HP iPAQ.
Configure and manage my GPS software to connect to my HP iPAQ's GPS
receiver automatically
Your GPS enabled HP iPAQ uses Microsoft Windows Mobile 6.1, so the operating system automatically
manages access to the HP iPAQ GPS receiver to allow multiple programs to simultaneously access
GPS data.
All GPS software programs need to know which communications port to use to access GPS data. Your
HP iPAQ already has the GPS port specified by default for the GPS software programs that come with
the device. However, sometimes if you install additional GPS programs onto your HP iPAQ GPS enabled
device, you may need to manually specify the GPS port in your GPS program's configuration settings.
For manual settings, refer to the documentation that came with your additional GPS software program.
Identify the COM port for my GPS receiver
The GPS receiver on your GPS enabled HP iPAQ is set to default configurations. To verify, tap
Start > Settings > System> External GPS.
Improve a slow GPS connection
To improve GPS connection performance on HP iPAQ GPS enabled device, you need to download the
latest GPS Connection Utility data file.
Even though GPS on your HP iPAQ is able to connect to the GPS satellites without enabling the GPS
Connection 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,
HSPA, 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.

116 Chapter 18 Frequently asked questions
Question
Answer
My HP iPAQ becomes very hot when I use it. What has
happened?
It is normal for the HP iPAQ to get a little warm when you use
it continuously for prolonged periods, especially when making
calls of very long duration or placing a heavy demand on the
HP iPAQ when using GPS. Your HP iPAQ might also get a little
warm when you charge it.
How do I reset my HP iPAQ?
You might need to reset your HP iPAQ if it does not respond
to your pressing a button or tapping on the screen. You can
perform a soft reset or a hard reset, also known as a factory
restore, on your HP iPAQ.
A soft reset stops all running programs, but does not erase any
programs or saved data. Be sure to save any unsaved data
within a running program before performing a soft reset.
A hard reset or factory restore clears all the user-installed
settings, programs, and data, and restores your HP iPAQ to
factory settings. Be sure to save any important data to an
external memory source before performing a hard reset or
factory restore as all your data will be erased.
CAUTION: If you perform a hard reset or factory restore, you
will lose all the data stored on your HP iPAQ.
To perform a soft reset:
●
Remove and re-insert the battery in your HP iPAQ. No
data is lost during a soft reset. After a soft reset, turn on
your HP iPAQ.
To perform a factory or hard reset:
●
Hold the
(Answer/Send key),
(End key), and
Camera keys when you turn on the HP iPAQ.
The HP iPAQ restarts and turns on. If the hard reset is
successful you will see the words Clean boot when the
HP logo appears.

126 Chapter 21 Regulatory notices
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. Additionally, please seek advice from your physician about the potential
effects of RF interference from your HP iPAQ upon the medical device you are using. 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. The highest non-FCC SAR value for this device when tested for use at the
ear is 0.59 W/kg (10 g). The highest non-FCC SAR value for this device when tested for use at the body
is 1.2 W/kg (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.
* 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.
Precaution for the use of the device
To limit exposure to radio frequency (RF) fields, the following precautions should be considered:
●
Mobile phone should be used in good reception conditions.
●
Headset devices should be used to keep the mobile phone away from head and body.
Medical Electronic Equipment 127
●
During pregnancy, the mobile phone should be kept away from the body.
●
Children and adolescents should use the mobile phone far away from their lower body.
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.
The exposure standard for wireless mobile phones employs a unit of measurement known as the
Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit set by the FCC is 1.6 W/kg. Tests for SAR are
conducted using standard operating positions accepted by the FCC with the phone 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 level of the phone while operating can be well below the maximum
value. This is because the phone 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 wireless base station antenna,
the lower the power output.
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 1.5 cm spacing between
this equipment and the body must be maintained to satisfy RF Exposure.
This equipment 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 1.04 W/kg and when tested for use at the body is 1.26 W/kg. This equipment must not be
co-located or operating in conjunction with any other antenna or transmitter.
