Adding TTY Functionality
Adding TTY Functionality for People Who Are Deaf or Hard-of-Hearing
HP iPAQ products support Tele-typewriter (TTY) functionality, which allows people who are deaf 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 may
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 earbud
jack (also called the earbud connector). This TTY audio adapter converts the pin-out of the earbud jack,
which is designed for a wired earbud and stereo headphones, to the pin-out required by most TTY
devices. To purchase the TTY audio adapter (part number: FA709B#AC3), visit www.hp.com>
Handheld Devices > 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,

Verifying Compatibility
All HP iPAQ Global Positioning System (GPS) enabled devices come with HP iPAQ compatible GPS
navigation software solutions. Depending on the region of the world where you purchase your device,
solutions are either pre-installed on the device, downloaded from the Internet, or installed using CDs.
If you are interested in purchasing additional GPS navigation software to use on your HP iPAQ, check
with the GPS software supplier (before you purchase, download, or install any GPS navigation software)
to determine that the application 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.
NOTE It is recommended that you download all GPS maps to a memory card that is compatible
with your specific HP iPAQ model, or to an iPAQ File Store folder (if your model provides one).
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. Since your HP iPAQ model uses Windows Mobile 5.0, you can

Encrypting/Decrypting Data
If your HP iPAQ has been off for longer than the time you selected during setup, your data is encrypted.
When you turn the device on, you are prompted to authenticate using your PIN and/or password. After
successful authentication, your data is decrypted. This may take a few moments depending on the
amount of data you chose to have encrypted. However, encryption runs in the background, and you can
perform other tasks on your HP iPAQ during this time.
You can monitor the decryption process in two ways:
●
If you selected Display encryption status on the Encryption Settings screen during setup, the HP
ProtectTools window displays the decryption status.
●
If you choose not to display this status, the encryption/decryption process proceeds in the
background, allowing you to use your HP iPAQ for other purposes.
In either case, a Blue Lock icon appears in the Taskbar at the bottom of the Today screen during
decryption. When the icon disappears, decryption is complete. Typically the HP iPAQ responds more
slowly during the encryption/decryption process.
Authenticate and wait for the decryption process to complete before synchronizing using Microsoft
ActiveSync. If decryption is not complete before synchronization begins, ActiveSync may not be initiated.
To correct the problem, disconnect and reconnect the device after decryption is complete.
If you enable Server Synchronization on ActiveSync, it is recommended that you do not select a Mobile
Schedule to automatically initiate synchronization. Since authentication and decryption are necessary
when the HP iPAQ is turned on, automatic synchronization does not work properly when HP
ProtectTools is enabled. The same problem may also arise when using other server-based
synchronization products.

Understanding Messaging
To send and receive e-mail messages for an e-mail acount that you have with an Internet Service
Provider (ISP) or that you access using a VPN server connection (typically a work 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),
and text messages. You can also access e-mail from work using a VPN connection.
E-mail in the Outlook e-mail account is sent and received through synchronization with a PC using
ActiveSync 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
use a modem to connect to your Internet Service Provider (ISP) You can also use a modem or Ethernet
card to connect to the local area network that your e-mail server is connected to. You can also use your
phone to connect by using a cellular line connection (for example, using Multimedia Messaging Service,
or MMS).
Text messages are sent and received through your wireless service provider using a phone number as
the message address.
96
Chapter 10 Messaging
ENWW
Using Folders
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 within each account.
The way folders work vary by type:
ENWW
●
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 to synchronize additional folders by
designating them for synchronization. The folders you create and the messages you move will then
be mirrored on the e-mail 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 to that folder. You can then read the messages
while you are away from your PC.
●
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 you move e-mail messages to a folder you created, the link is
broken between the messages on the device 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 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 that you move to folders
created from anywhere except the device.
●
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 device or PC. 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.
Using Folders
97
Synchronizing E-mail
When you synchronize Outlook e-mail on the personal computer (PC) with your device, e-mail messages
are synchronized as follows:
●
Messages in the Inbox folder on your PC 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's deleted from your PC or Exchange Server the
next time you synchronize.
●
The default sync settings synchronize messages from the past three days only and the first .5KB
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 PC or tap Contents.
Text messages are not received via synchronization. Instead, they are sent to your device via
your service provider.

Downloading Messages
The manner in which you download messages depends 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 phone is turned on. When your phone is
turned off (in flight mode), messages are held by your service provider until the next time your
phone 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 > Tools > Options
> Message tab, 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 Menu > Tools > Manage Folders and select the check box next
to the folder.
Downloading Messages from a Server
1.
Tap Menu > Switch Accounts 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 If you want 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 selected those options when you set up the
e-mail account.
The size column in the message list displays the local size and server size of a message. Even
when an entire message has been downloaded, these numbers may differ because the size of
a message can vary between the server and the device.
Installing 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 Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP). When
you create an e-mail account, your e-mail server's directory service is added to the Address tab, 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:
106
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 tab.
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.
Chapter 10 Messaging
ENWW
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 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.

ENWW
JAVA Manager
Java manager enables you to install, view, select, run, and delete MIDlets and/or MIDlet suites on your
HP iPAQ.
MIDlets are Java applications that can run on mobile devices. Your HP iPAQ is a Java-enabled device.
MIDlets are written for the Mobile Information Device Profile (MIDP) of the Java 2 Platform, Micro Edition
(J2ME). This is a technical specification, and does not influence the type of application that can be called
a MIDlet. For example, MIDlets are business applications, communication programs, games, and
utilities. You may see references to both MIDlets and MIDlet suites. These terms are often
interchangeable.
A MIDlet is a program that conforms to the MIDP specification, while a MIDlet suite normally consists
of .jad and .jar files and is a collection of one or more MIDlets bundled together. Some MIDlets may be
distributed as .jar files, but also use .jad files if both have been supplied since jad files contain additional
data about a MIDlet suite. In actuality, MIDlets are always distributed as MIDlet suites, whether they
contain a single application or a collection of applications.

Tap Start > Programs > Java > Menu... > Install > Browser. Select the browser of your choice
and connect to the Internet.
2.
Locate a MIDlet or MIDlet suite (this is normally .jad and .jar files), and download it.
3.
Confirm the download before the download begins. A progress bar displays while the files are
downloading. If necessary, you may cancel the download at any time.
Once your download is complete, the MIDlet Manager automatically starts and prompts you to
install your new MIDlet/MIDlet suite.

Wireless Synchronization Cost Saving Tips
How you manage the cost of synchronizing wirelessly 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 device 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 device to automatically
power down, the device never turns off to save battery power.

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.

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: 0.158 W/kg (10g)
●
DCS1800: 0.387 W/kg (10g)
