device, and the camera’s on-screen shutter button.
CAUTION: To prevent damage to your HP iPAQ screen, never use
any device other than the stylus that comes with the HP iPAQ or an

your stylus, you can order extras at www.hp.com/go/ipaqaccessories.
You can perform three basic actions using the stylus:
Tap—Lightly touch the screen to select or open an item. Lift the stylus after

Create partnerships that enable you to synchronize information with
up to two computers.
Select information to be synchronized with your HP iPAQ (for
example, Contacts, Calendar, Inbox, Tasks, Favorites, Files, Notes,
and AvantGo).
NOTE: When you synchronize files, you can drag and drop the selected
files from your computer to the synchronized folder on your HP iPAQ. If
you named your HP iPAQ “PC1” when you created your partnership,
then the synchronized folder is named “PC1.” When you synchronize, the
files move to and from your HP iPAQ.
There are many error messages that can be received when synchronizing.
For the best answers to troubleshooting these errors, refer to the Microsoft
Windows Mobile Web site at www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile.

Using Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync
If your company is using Microsoft Exchange Server 2003, you can
synchronize Calendar, Contacts, and E-mail with your HP iPAQ wirelessly
without connecting to a desktop cradle. Exchange ActiveSync in Microsoft
Exchange Server 2003 allows the HP iPAQ to access corporate
information on a server running Exchange server software. It allows
ActiveSync-enabled HP iPAQs to synchronize mailbox items over the air
(GPRS or wireless connection) without using a desktop computer, cradle,
and desktop synchronization software.
You can also synchronize your mobile device with the Exchange server
using the desktop pass-through option present in all Windows Mobilebased devices. Desktop pass-through allows your cradled HP iPAQ to use
the desktop computer’s Internet connection to connect directly to Exchange
ActiveSync. You can then perform tasks such as browsing the Internet or
downloading IMAP/POP3 e-mail messages.
After Exchange ActiveSync creates a connection and a partnership
between the HP iPAQ and the desktop computer, desktop pass-through is

Using the Phone Features
Use the HP iPAQ Mobile Messenger phone to make and receive telephone
calls and send and receive Text and MMS (Multimedia Message Service)
messages. Your mobile phone service provider may provide other useful
services such as voicemail.
The phone can also be used to connect to an Internet Service Provider (ISP)
or work network so you can browse the Web and read e-mail. You can
connect to the Internet or work network over GPRS/EDGE (General Packet
Radio Service/Enhanced Data Rates for Global Evolution), or you can use
GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications) for dial-up access.
For information on establishing GSM/GPRS/EDGE data connections,
refer to Chapter 7, ”Making Data Connections.”
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.
SIM Card
A Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) card is required to operate the phone
features on your HP iPAQ. The SIM card is a plastic card embedded with
a computer chip that stores and transacts data. After the SIM card is
activated by your mobile phone service provider, the computer chip will
contain information about your phone number, service, registration
information, and contacts, as well as memory to store speed dial numbers
and text or SMS/MMS messages that you receive.
With the exception of emergency calls, the SIM card must be inserted into
the SIM slot under the battery on the back of the HP iPAQ for voice/data
calls to work.
To dial an emergency number from the Phone keypad, tap the emergency
number appropriate for your region, and then tap Talk.
NOTE: tSee your local telephone directory for emergency numbers used
in your area. Emergency numbers can be dialed without a SIM card
being inserted in the HP iPAQ and there is no charge for
emergency calls.

NOTE: If you purchased your HP iPAQ from a mobile service provider,
phone service may be activated at time of purchase or the mobile service
provider may include activation instructions.
If you have purchased a prepaid SIM card to use with your HP iPAQ or, if
your service provider issued you a SIM card with a preset PIN, the
following information is not applicable.
After you select a service provider, you must place a phone call to the
service provider to activate your mobile phone service. Your carrier may
require the following information to activate your card:
•
•
SIM Card Serial Number (printed on the box label or on the
back of the SIM card)
IMEI Number (printed on the system label under the
removable battery)
Your mobile phone service representative will give you your wireless phone
number and walk you through setting up your service.

You can disable your PIN; however, for security reasons, it is
recommended that you keep it enabled. While enabled, you must enter
your PIN every time you turn on your phone features.
CAUTION: After three consecutive, incorrect PINs are entered, the SIM
card locks to prevent further use. If the letters PUK (PIN Unblocking Key)
display on your HP iPAQ screen, you have locked your SIM card and
must enter your PIN Unblocking Key on the screen to unlock it. If you did
not receive a PIN Unblocking Key with your SIM card, you must contact
your service provider to unlock it.
If your HP iPAQ is ever stolen or lost, the PIN safeguards your phone
against fraudulent use.

TTY Functionality for the Hearing-Impaired
This HP iPAQ supports TTY (Tele-typewriter) functionality. This functionality
allows hearing-impaired persons to communicate using existing telephony
infrastructure, including cellular phones. To achieve this, separately
purchased TTY devices must be connected to the telephones on both ends
of a telephone call session, and the TTY software application must be
downloaded from the Companion CD onto the HP iPAQ. The sending TTY
Using the Phone Features
5–23
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 cellular
telephones, these TTY audio tones may be unintentionally distorted while
being transmitted through cellular telephones. In order for TTY devices to
continue to work in cellular networks, the cellular telephone must be set
into a mode that optimizes the compression codec to handle TTY tones
instead of the human voice.
NOTE: For information on connecting TTY devices to the HP iPAQ, refer
to the TTY device manufacturer’s documentation.
Enabling TTY Support
Before connecting the optional TTY device to the phone, you must enable
TTY support in order to prepare the HP iPAQ Phone to expect a TTY device
to be connected.

TTY keyboard.
The letters typed into the machine 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 which appear on a display screen, are printed out on paper,
or both.
When you are finished typing your phone conversation, the person
on the other end of the line may begin typing their answers or
comments to you.
To end a phone call, press and hold the red End Call phone
button on the front of the HP iPAQ.

Make a wireless GSM/GPRS/EDGE connection to place a phone
call or send or receive e-mail, text message, or Multimedia
Message Service (MMS) messages.
NOTE: EDGE technology delivers faster data speed than GPRS to mobile
devices. It allows users to connect to the Internet and send and receive
data, including digital images, Web pages and photographs faster than
with a GSM/GPRS network. If a network provider does not have EDGE
technology deployed, the HP iPAQ defaults to GPRS data transfer rates.
Because EDGE is integrated into GPRS technology when it is enabled by
your service provider, there is no visible means of identifying when it is
being used. You will only receive faster data transmission.

Transfer information between two Infrared (IrDA) enabled ports.
NOTE: Use of dial-up and wireless Internet, e-mail, corporate networks,
and other wireless communications, such as Bluetooth-enabled devices,
may require separately purchased additional hardware and other
compatible equipment, in addition to a separately purchased service
contract. Check with your service provider for availability and coverage
in your area. Not all Web content may be available. Some Web content
may require installation of additional software. GPRS may not be
available in all networks. GPRS data transmission speeds may vary
based upon network capabilities and other conditions. The establishment
and continuation of a GPRS connection depends on network availability,
provider support, and signal strength.

For more information on this subject, refer to the Help file on your HP iPAQ
by tapping Start > Help > Connections.
Impact of Data Connection When a
Phone Call is Received
Class B mobile phones may be attached to both GPRS and GSM services,
using one service at a time. Class B enables making/receiving a voice
call, or sending/receiving a text message during a GPRS connection.
During voice calls or text messaging, GPRS services are suspended and
then resumed automatically after the call or text message session
has ended.
Using GSM/GPRS/EDGE Connections
GSM/GPRS/EDGE technology is integrated into your HP iPAQ. To send
or receive data over a GSM/GPRS/EDGE network, you must have an
account with a mobile telephone service provider that supports GSM/
GPRS/EDGE data services and an activated SIM card. The service
provider must enable the GPRS data features on your account to activate
it and must have EDGE technology on the network for this capability to be
used on the HP iPAQ. If EDGE is not enabled, the HP iPAQ defaults
to GPRS.
Creating a GPRS/EDGE Connection
A GPRS/EDGE connection provides high-speed data transfer and is
typically used for Web browsing and to send and receive small bursts of
data such as e-mail and MMS messages.
To create a GPRS/EDGE connection, you must subscribe with a GSM
service provider that supports GPRS/EDGE. After you configure your
GPRS/EDGE connection and connect to the GPRS network, you may be
required to authenticate GPRS.
NOTE: Your service provider must enable the GPRS/EDGE features on
your account.

Using GPS Navigation
Getting Acquainted
Your HP iPAQ includes Global Positioning System (GPS) Navigation
technology; therefore it is capable of using GPS software applications that
are compatible with this device. The GPS technology on your HP iPAQ is
based on a worldwide system of GPS satellites orbiting the earth that
continuously transmit digital radio signals. These radio signals contain
data on the satellites’ locations and their exact clock time and are used to
determine your location on the earth.
With your GPS capable device, you can use navigation software from
other third-party companies. For GPS navigation solutions recommended
by HP, visit www.hp.com/go/gpsnavigation. However, before you
purchase, download or install any GPS software, you must determine

software supplier to see if their software is compatible with the HP iPAQ
hw6500 Mobile Messenger series.
Setting Up Your HP iPAQ
First follow the instructions in the printed Getting started guide
until you complete creating a partnership with your personal
computer. This includes installing the Subscriber Identity Module (SIM)
and battery, synchronizing your HP iPAQ with your personal computer,
and establishing a partnership.
Setting Up Internet Access on Your HP iPAQ
Now that you have completed the steps in the Getting started guide, verify
you have Internet access on your HP iPAQ by visiting a web site such as
www.google.com or www.yahoo.com. If you cannot access the Internet,
take your HP iPAQ out of the cradle and use a GPRS connection. For
details, refer to Chapter 7, in the section “Creating a GPRS/EDGE
Connection.”
Using HP iPAQ Quick GPS Connection Utility
To improve connection performance, you need to enable the HP iPAQ
Quick GPS Connection Data Utility and download the latest data file.
Even though the GPS radio on your HP iPAQ is able to connect to the GPS
satellites without enabling the Quick 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.
The default settings on the HP iPAQ Quick GPS Connection Utility are set
where the device cannot receive automatic updates unless you enable
the update feature.

Tips for Taking Better Pictures
To ensure the pictures you take are of the highest possible quality.
•
•
•
When taking pictures of scenes with many fine details and many
colors (for example, a farmer’s market), use the Best
compression setting.
When taking pictures of subjects where the background has bright
lights, try to frame the subject so that the bright lights do not appear
in the picture.
When taking a picture, do not move the camera until after the first
and second shutter sounds are heard.

12 Using Messaging
NOTE: To access Messaging Help on your HP iPAQ, from the Start
menu, tap Help > Messaging.
Understanding Messaging
When using Messaging, you can send and receive messages in three
ways: Internet e-mail, text messages, and Multimedia Message Service
(MMS) messages. These accounts are already created in your HP iPAQ
and are described more later in this chapter. The different types of
messages can be:
•
•
•
Internet e-mail ---- messages sent and received by using the e-mail
address you received from your Internet Service Provider (ISP) or
your employer.
Text messages ---- messages sent and received through your mobile
phone service provider by using a phone number as the
message address.
MMS messages --- messages sent and received through your mobile
phone service provider by using a phone number or an
e-mail address as the message address.
Additional accounts can be set up on your HP iPAQ such as a Post Office
Protocol 3 (POP3) or an Internet Message Access Protocol 4 (IMAP4)
account. POP3 and IMAP4 are protocols used to retrieve
e-mail from a mail server. The newer version, IMAP4, is similar to POP3
but supports some additional features. For example, with IMAP4, you can
search through your e-mail messages using keywords while the messages
reside on the mail server. You then can choose which messages to
download to your HP iPAQ.
Using Folders
Each e-mail account, text message account, and MMS account has its own
folder hierarchy with five default folders: Inbox, Outbox, Deleted Items,
Drafts, and Sent Items. The messages you send and receive through the
mail account are stored in these folders. Also, you can create additional
folders within each hierarchy. The Deleted Items folder contains messages
that have been deleted on the HP iPAQ. The behavior of the Deleted Items
and Sent Items folders depends on the Inbox options you have chosen.
The behavior of the folders you create depends on whether you are using
ActiveSync, MMS, text messages, or a POP3 or IMAP4 mail server.
If you use ActiveSync, e-mail messages in the Outlook Inbox folder will
automatically be synchronized with your HP iPAQ. You can select to
synchronize additional folders by designating them for ActiveSync;
however, when you synchronize wirelessly over the air using Exchange
ActiveSync, only the Calendar, Contacts, and E-mail folders will
synchronize. The folders you create and the messages you move will then
Using Messaging
12–1
be mirrored on the server. For example, if you move two messages from
the Inbox folder to a folder named Family, and you have designated
Family for synchronization, the server creates a copy of the Family folder
and copies the messages into that folder. You can then read the messages
while away from your personal computer.
If you use MMS or text messages, messages are stored in the Inbox folder.
If you use IMAP4, the folders you create and the e-mail messages you
move are mirrored on the server. Therefore, messages are available to you
anytime you connect to your mail server, whether it is from your HP iPAQ
or personal computer. This folder synchronization occurs whenever you
connect to your mail server, create new folders, or rename/delete folders
when connected.
For all accounts except MMS, you can access folder options by tapping
Tools > Manage Folders on your HP iPAQ.
Synchronizing Inbox
After selecting Inbox for synchronization in ActiveSync, e-mail messages
are synchronized as part of the general synchronization process.
During synchronization:
•
Messages are copied from the folders on your personal
computer or the Microsoft Exchange server to the Outlook
e-mail folders on your HP iPAQ. By default, you receive
messages from the last three days only, the first 100 lines of
each new message, and file attachments of less than 100 KB
in size.
NOTE: You can only synchronize information directly with an
Exchange Server if your company is using Microsoft Mobile
Information Server 2002 or later.
NOTE: You can synchronize information over the air if your
company is using Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 or later.
•
•
•
Messages in the Outbox folder on your HP iPAQ are transferred
to Exchange or Outlook and then sent from those programs.
Messages on the two computers are linked. When you delete a
message on your HP iPAQ, it’s deleted from your personal
computer the next time you synchronize.
Messages in Outlook e-mail subfolders (or other e-mail folders)
are synchronized only if they have been selected for
synchronization in ActiveSync.
NOTE: If you have numerous e-mails and contacts on your personal
computer, you may have to synchronize your HP iPAQ with your PC
several times before all of the information downloads to your HP iPAQ.
Using Messaging
12–2
For information on initiating Inbox synchronization or changing
synchronization settings, see ActiveSync Help on your personal computer.
NOTE: MMS and text messages are not received through
synchronization. Instead, they are sent to your HP iPAQ via your mobile
phone service provider.

13 Managing the Battery
Your HP iPAQ is shipped with the rechargeable battery partially charged.
It is recommended that you fully charge the HP iPAQ battery before
setting up the unit, and recharge regularly. Your HP iPAQ uses some power
to maintain files in RAM and the clock. While working at your desk, keep
the HP iPAQ and AC Adapter connected through the HP iPAQ Cradle.
When you travel, it is recommended that you carry the AC Adapter,
Charger Adapter plug, or an optional spare battery with you.
CAUTION: Use only an HP approved battery for your HP iPAQ. Inserting
a battery that does not comply with HP requirements might cause the unit
to malfunction and will void the HP iPAQ limited warranty.
The HP iPAQ has a small internal backup battery that (when charged)
allows you to change the main battery without losing RAM data (userinstalled programs and data) as long as it is replaced within 15 minutes.
Use the backup battery to “bridge” the time you need to re-install a new
standard or extended battery or to find your serial number. You can check
the charge level of the back up battery by referring to “Maximizing Battery
Life and Checking Battery Charge Levels” in this chapter. The internal
battery can only be removed by a qualified HP Technical
Support Representative.
BATTERY SAVING TIP: To ensure you always have battery power
available, you can purchase an extra Standard Battery or Extended
Battery. These batteries can be charged using the HP iPAQ. To purchase
an extra battery, refer to the HP Web site at www.hp.com/go/
ipaqaccessories.

To ensure you always have battery power available, purchase a
spare standard or extended battery. The spare battery can be
charged in the Battery Charger. For more information on
purchasing optional batteries, visit the HP Web site at
www.hp.com/go/ipaqaccessories.
Checking Your Battery
To check your battery charge level:
•
•
From the TodayPanel on the Today screen, tap the Battery icon >
Main tab.
Or from the Today screen, tap Start > Settings > System tab
> Power > Main tab.
You can view the amount of battery power remaining for both the main
battery and the backup battery.
The main battery provides the HP iPAQ with power when it is not
physically connected to the cradle or AC adapter. The internal backup
battery provides the HP iPAQ with enough power to maintain data when
you remove the battery for short periods of time. When the backup battery
is fully charged, it maintains data for up to 15 minutes. However, you
should always replace the main battery (extended or standard)
immediately to minimize the drain on the backup battery.
If the main or backup battery charge level is low, recharge the battery by
connecting the HP iPAQ to AC power using the cradle or the AC adapter
or insert a fully charged battery into the HP iPAQ. When the HP iPAQ turns
off (due to low battery level) and does not turn on again, you have only
up to 72 hours to recharge the battery before you lose data.
For information on purchasing an optional standard or extended battery,
visit the HP Web site at www.hp.com/go/ipaqaccessories.
Managing the Battery
13–9
CAUTION: Do not allow the battery installed in your HP iPAQ to
discharge completely. Doing so will not harm your HP iPAQ or battery,
but your device will lose all data not stored in File Store (ROM).
Discharging the battery completely is similar to performing a hard reset.

WARNING! Exposure to Radio Frequency (RF) Radiation
The radiated output power of this device is far below the FCC radio
frequency exposure limits. Nevertheless, users concerned with the risk of
Radio Frequency exposure may want to limit the duration of calls and
position the antenna as far away from the body as practical. For body
worn operation, this device has been tested and meets the FCC RF
exposure guidelines when used with the Hewlett-Packard accessories
supplied with or designated for this product. Use of other accessories
may not ensure compliance with FCC RF exposure guidelines.
U.S. Regulatory Notice For 900/1800 GSM Frequency Bands
This device contains 900/1800 MHz GSM functions that are not
operational in U.S. territories. This filing is only applicable for GSM 850
MHz and PCS 1900 MHz operations.
Health and Safety Information
Since your HP wireless phone is a radio transmitter and receiver, you may
be exposed to Radio Frequency (RF) signals when it is powered on.
However, your HP wireless phone has been designed so that it does not
exceed the emission limits for exposure to radio frequency energy that are
set by the Federal Communications Commission of the U.S. Government.
These limits are part of comprehensive guidelines and establish permitted
levels of RF energy for the general population. The guidelines are based
on the safety standards previously set by both the United States and
international standards:

This equipment under test has been shown to be capable of compliance
for localized Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) for uncontrolled environment/
general population exposure limits specified in ANSI/IEEE Standard
C95.1-1992 and had been tested in accordance with measurement
procedures specified in FCC/OET Bulletin 65 Supplement C (2001) and
IEEE Standard 1528-200X (Draft 6.5, January 2002). Ministry of Health
(Canada), Safety Code 6. The standards include a substantial safety
margin designed to assure the safety of all persons, regardless of age and
health. The exposure standard for wireless mobile phones employs a unit
of measure known as the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR). The SAR limit set
by the FCC is 1.6W/kg.
NOTE: In the U.S. and Canada, the SAR limit for mobile phones used by
the public is 1.6 watts/kg (W/kg) averaged over one gram of tissue. The
standard incorporates a substantial margin of safety to give additional
protection to the public and to account for any variations.

As with other mobile radio transmitting equipment, users are
advised that for satisfactory operation of the equipment and for the
safety of personnel, it is recommended that no part of the human
body be allowed to come too close to the antenna during operation
of the equipment.
This device has been designed to comply with applicable
requirements for exposure to radio waves based on scientific
guidelines that include margins intended to assure the safety of all
people, regardless of health and age. These radio wave exposure
guidelines employ a unit of measurement known as the Specific
Absorption Rate (SAR). Tests for SAR are conducted using
standardized methods with the phone transmitting at its highest
certified power level in all used frequency bands. The SAR data
information is based on CENELEC’s standards EN50360 and
EN50361 which use the limit of 2 Watts per kilogram (W/kg)
averaged over 10 grams of tissue. The highest SAR value for this
model phone when tested is as follows:
• GSM900: 0.234 W/kg (10g)
• DCS1800: 0.391 W/kg (10g)
