4 Insert the battery with the notched edge first (the edge with the gold

5 Replace the back cover.
Charge the Battery
Your device comes with a removable, rechargeable lithium-ion battery.
When you first receive your device, it is important that you fully charge the
battery as described below.
!
Only use the charger and battery provided with your device or approved
by T‑Mobile, or you risk damaging your device.
!
Do not insert battery chargers from previous Sidekick models into the
stereo headset jack.
If you attach your device to your computer via USB, be aware that the
power received may not be enough to charge your device. For example,
when computers are in “sleep” mode, only a trickle charge may be
supplied via USB. In this situation you could lose more power than you
gain. To connect the device to your computer, insert the USB plug into your
device’s USB port with the icon on the top of the plug.
12
Prior to Using Your Device
1 Locate the battery charger that came in the box with your device. Insert
the charger’s USB plug into your device’s USB port, which is next to the
power button. Make sure the icon is on the top of the plug.
Now plug the power cord into a standard electrical wall outlet.
An orange charge indicator light will go on and a lightning bolt icon
will appear over the battery icon in the title bar, indicating the charger
is connected and the battery is charging. If your device has discharged
completely, it may take up to 15 minutes before you see any indication
of charging on the screen. When the battery is fully charged, the
indicator turns green. If any error occurs when charging, the indicator
turns red.
2 Put the device in a safe place and let the battery charge for at least four
hours with the device powered on.
As the device is charging, the bars in the battery icon fill repeatedly
from left to right. When your device is fully charged, the lightning bolt
icon will disappear and the bars will stop moving and remain in the
filled position.

It is recommended that you charge your device nightly. If you plan
to leave it unattended for an extended period of time, be aware that the
battery may discharge within a few days if it is turned on and not attached
to the charger.

n Passwords must contain 4-15 characters, can include both letters and
numbers, but no spaces, single quotes ('), semicolons (;), backslashes
(\), or percent signs (%).
n For enhanced security, do not choose an actual word that appears in
any language dictionary. Do not choose a proper name, such as the
name of a child, local sports team, pet’s name, or city of birth. Do not
choose adjacent letters on your keyboard or a sequential or repeating
combination of letters or characters, such as “12345678”, “222222”,
“abcdefg”.
n For enhanced security, do choose a password that is more than seven
characters long, mixes letters and numerals, and uses upper- and
lower-case letters.
n Passwords are case-sensitive. For example, if you set your password

one of these alternatives or type a different username. Note that if you

Location Based Services
Location Based Services (LBS) is an implementation of GPS technology
that allows you to use the geographical position of your device for
geotagging of photos and mapping functions. Once you turn GPS on, your
device will automatically update your location at pre-set intervals. To turn
GPS on:
1 Press JUMP , then press MENU and select Location & Privacy.
2 Select GPS On: Show Location to show your location. Conversely, GPS
Off: Hide location hides your location.
You may experience decreased battery life when GPS is on.
 Please note that certain challenging environments, for example many
indoor and outdoor locations such as urban areas surrounded by highrises, may result in it taking longer for the device to triangulate your
location or potentially result in a failure to register your location at all.
When GPS is set to on, the camera will grab your last known location and
geotag your photos if you have opted to do so. To select photo geotagging,
navigate to the camera application, press MENU and Select Photo
Settings. Select the Turn geotagging on option.
Typically, you do not need to manage your LBS updates or settings.
Reasons to do so include wanting to manually start the location update
process rather than waiting for the device to automatically update, viewing
your last known location or changing your display unit preference. To
manage these settings, do the following:
1 Press JUMP , then press MENU and select Location & Privacy.
2 Update location – Use this option to start a GPS update. This can also
be achieved by navigating to the Advanced menu.
3 Select the Advanced menu item to view the following:

location, when the information was last updated and accuracy data.

I needed to remove my battery, so I did. After I put the battery back in
my device, it powered up, but all my messages and other data were
gone. Is it all gone for good?
No, all your data is regularly saved in an ongoing basis to the Danger
service so it is safe. If you wait a few minutes, all your data will be restored
to your device. (Note, however, that any data you entered or modified
between the last save to the Danger service and when you removed the
battery will be lost.)
Chances are you removed the battery before powering off your device. Every
time you power off your device, your data is saved to the device’s internal
flash memory. However, if you remove your battery before shutting down,
your data will not be saved to flash. It is recommended that you always power
off your device before removing the battery!
How can I improve radio reception when I’m in a “fringe” coverage
area?
Try the following to improve radio reception:
n Use the hands-free headset and position the phone away from your body.
n Walk to a window if you are indoors.
n Step outside of buildings that have high metal, concrete, or earthen
content, because they may absorb radio signals.
n Step away from metallic windows because they absorb RF energy.
n Go to the highest spot possible to make the call.
n Step away from computers or electronic equipment.
n If you are in a car, first park, then try the call from outside the car.
n If you are near or directly under a cellular/PCS radio tower, walk at least
one block away.
My device has not connected to the service for quite a while. Is there
anything I can do myself before calling Customer Care?

What are the requirements for getting my POP or IMAP email
accounts to appear on my device?
To fetch messages from an email account, you must gather the following
information:
n Name of the remote email server (e.g., mail.example.com).
n Protocol used by the remote email server (e.g., POP, IMAP).
n Your username on the remote email server. (For example, if your email
address is joe@example.com, then your username is “joe”.)
n Your password on the remote email server. This is the same password
you use to open the remote email directly.
Most Internet Service Providers and University email systems work with
the POP3 protocol. If you are not sure of the protocol, use the Auto-detect
setting, or you can call or email your remote service and ask what protocol
they support. The remote service operators can also tell you the name of
the remote email server.

Exposure to Radio Frequency (RF) Signals
THIS MODEL DEVICE MEETS THE GOVERNMENT’S REQUIREMENTS FOR EXPOSURE TO RADIO WAVES.
Your wireless device is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed and manufactured not to exceed
the emission limits for exposure to radio frequency (RF) energy set by the Federal Communications
Commission of the U.S. Government and Industry Canada of the Canadian Government. These limits are
part of comprehensive guidelines and establish permitted levels of RF energy for the general population.
The guidelines are based on standards that were developed by independent scientific organizations
through periodic and thorough evaluation of scientific studies. 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 measurement known as the Specific
Absorption Rate, or SAR.
The available scientific evidence does not show that any health problems are associated with using low
power wireless devices. There is no proof, however, that these low power wireless devices are absolutely
safe. Low power Wireless devices emit low levels of radio frequency energy (RF) in the microwave range
while being used. Whereas high levels of RF can produce health effects (by heating tissue), exposure to
low-level RF that does not produce heating effects causes no known adverse health effects. Many studies
of low-level RF exposures have not found any biological effects. Some studies have suggested that some
biological effects might occur, but such findings have not been confirmed by additional research. In the
United States and Canada, the SAR limit for mobile devices used by the public is 1.6 watts/kg (W/kg)
averaged over one gram of tissue. The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this wireless
device with all reported SAR levels evaluated as in compliance with the FCC RF emission guidelines. SAR
information for this device is on file with the FCC and can be found under the Display Grant section of
http://www.fcc.gov/oet/fccid after searching on FCC ID: APYNAR0065 for the PV300 model (850/900/17
00/1800/1900/2100 MHz).
 For body-worn operation, to maintain compliance with FCC RF exposure guidelines and IC RF
exposure rules, keep the Sidekick at least 5/8 inch (15 mm) away from the body, and only use the
carrying cases, belt clips, or holders that do not have metal parts and that maintain at least 5/8 inch
(15mm) separation between the Sidekick and the body. When carrying the device on your person, it
is recommended to turn the screen display in toward the body in order to minimize RF exposure and
maximize antenna efficiency.
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.
92
Regulatory and Compliance Information
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.
Regulatory Compliance Information for Europe
EU Declaration of Conformity

Danger® Service Privacy Statement
Microsoft and its subsidiary, Danger, Inc., (collectively “Microsoft”) are committed to protecting your
privacy, while delivering software and services that bring you the performance, power, and convenience
you desire in your personal computing. This privacy statement explains many of the data collection and
use practices of Microsoft’s Danger wireless data services, (“Danger Service”). It does not apply to other
online or offline Microsoft sites, products, or services. This privacy statement does not apply to the data
collection and use practices of your wireless network operator that offers the Danger Service.
The Danger Service, operated on behalf of your wireless network operator, enables certain features on
your wireless device, including email, Internet access, instant messaging, address book and calendar
functions. The Danger Service also includes a Web site operated by Microsoft (“Danger Service Web
Site”) that users may use to access these features, as described more fully in the Reference Guide accompanying your wireless device.
Collection and Use of Your Information
The information we collect from you will be used by Microsoft and its controlled subsidiaries and affiliates
to enable the features you are using and provide the service(s) or carry out the transaction(s) you have
requested or authorized. It may also be used to analyze and improve Microsoft products and services.
We may send certain mandatory service communications such as welcome letters, billing reminders,
information on technical service issues, and security announcements. Some Microsoft services may send
periodic member letters that are considered part of the service. We may occasionally request your feedback, invite you to participate in surveys, or send you promotional mailings to inform you of other products
or services available from Microsoft and its affiliates.
In order to offer you a more consistent and personalized experience in your interactions with Microsoft,
information collected through one Microsoft service may be combined with information obtained through
other Microsoft services. We may also supplement the information we collect with information obtained
from other companies. For example, we may use services from other companies that enable us to derive a
general geographic area based on your IP address in order to customize certain services to your geographic area.
Except as described in this statement, personal information you provide will not be transferred to third
parties without your consent. Your personal information may be shared with third parties for their use to
fulfill your requests and purchases of products and services. Additionally, we occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as processing and collecting payments, servicing
accounts, providing the products and services associated with the Danger Service, or performing statistical analysis of our services. We will only provide those companies the personal information they need to
deliver the service, and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
Microsoft may access or disclose information about you, including the content of your communications,
in order to: (a) comply with the law or respond to lawful requests or legal process; (b) protect the rights or
property of Microsoft or our customers, including the enforcement of our agreements or policies governing your use of the Danger Service; or (c) act on a good faith belief that such access or disclosure is necessary to protect the personal safety of Microsoft employees, customers, or the public.
Legal Information
99
Information that is collected by or sent to Microsoft by the Danger Service may be stored and processed in
the United States or any other country in which Microsoft or its affiliates, subsidiaries, or service providers
maintain facilities. Microsoft abides by the safe harbor framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of
Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of data from the European Union.
Collection and Use of Information about Your Computer or Wireless Device
When you use Internet-enabled features of the Danger Service, information about your computer or
wirless device (“standard computer information”) is sent to the Web sites you visit and online services
you use. Microsoft uses standard computer information to provide you Internet-enabled services, to help
improve our products and services, and for statistical analysis. Standard computer information typically includes information such as your IP address, operating system version, browser version, and regional and
language settings. In some cases, standard computer information may also include hardware ID, which
indicates the device manufacturer, device name, and version. If a particular feature or service sends information to Microsoft, standard computer information will be sent as well.
Collection and Use of Danger Service Usage Data
The Danger Service collects certain information about actions you take while using the Danger Service
and how you use the Danger Service (“Usage Data”). For example, the Danger Service automatically gathers information regarding which Web pages are visited by users of the Danger Service. In addition, data
regarding usage of various features of the Danger Service is collected, such as how many email messages
or IM messages are sent by a particular user or by users in the aggregate, the most popular Web sites visited by users of the Danger Service, the number of Web pages viewed at the Danger Service Web Site and
other similar information. Similarly, for network monitoring purposes, the Danger Service records how
many devices in the aggregate are connected to the Danger Service in particular geographic locations,
but the Danger Service does not automatically identify the location of individual devices or users.
Usage Data gathered from your use of the Danger Service is stored under an automatically generated
identification number that will not be linked to information that identifies you or can be used to contact
you without your consent, except as specifically provided in this privacy statement.
Usage Data is used to effectively operate the Danger Service and enhance your experience using the
Danger Service. For example, cached versions of the Web sites that are most frequently visited by users
are stored on the Danger Service so that you can access them more quickly. Usage Data is also used to
understand how certain features of the Danger Service are being used and to measure the costs of providing certain features. Usage Data may also be used to diagnose and correct problems with the Danger
Service. In some cases, it may be necessary to link Usage Data relating to your use of the Danger Service
with you individually in order to correct problems that you may be experiencing with the Danger Service.
In general, the collection and use of Usage Data allows for continuing development of the Danger Service
and the ability to provide improved features and services to users. Usage Data may be shared with third
parties for research, analysis, or other similar purposes. Usage Data will only be shared with third parties if the information is disclosed in a manner that does not identify individual users to the third parties
concerned.
Security of your information
Microsoft is committed to helping protect the security of your information. We use a variety of security
technologies and procedures to help protect your information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example, we store the information you provide on computer systems with limited access, which
are located in controlled facilities.
