following will be considered matches: “Ben Miller”, “George Adams”, “JohnCarter”, “Carter, Ellen”, “Dixon, Allan”, “Thomas_Clark”, “JaneCampbell”.
If the matching list is long and you want to narrow down the search further,
enter another letter. Using the same example above, if you continue to
tap “3” which is associated with [d, e, f ], the matching list will be narrowed
down to the following names: “Ben Miller”, “George Adams”, “Carter, Ellen”,
“Dixon, Allan”.

also immediately updated onto your device when these items have been
changed or new entries have been added on the Exchange Server. To make
Direct Push work, you need to have a GPRS connection on your device.
You need to perform a full synchronization between your device and the
Exchange Server first before Direct Push can be enabled.

8.5 E-mail Security
Windows Mobile® on your device protects your Outlook e-mails through
Secure/Multipurpose Internet Mail Extension (S/MIME), which allows you to
digitally sign and encrypt your messages.
Digitally signing a message applies your certificate with the authorization
key to the message. This proves to the recipient that the message is from
you and not from an imposter or a hacker, and that the message has not
been altered.
Encryption protects the privacy of your message by converting it from
plain, readable text into cipher (scrambled) text. Only the recipient who has
the authorization key can decipher the message.
Requirement
Note
S/MIME encryption and digital signatures for Windows
Mobile® powered devices are available only with Exchange
Server 2003 SP2 or a later version that supports S/MIME. If
you are not using one of these products, or have not yet
synchronized, these options are unavailable.
You can encrypt a message with or without a certificate. However, to read an
encrypted message, you need a valid certificate to decrypt it.
To individually sign and encrypt a new message
1. Tap Start > Messaging >
Outlook E-mail.
2. Tap Menu > New to create a new
message.
3. Tap Menu > Message Options.
4. From the Security list, select
whether to encrypt only, sign the
message only, or do both.
5. Tap OK.
Working With Company E-mails and Meeting Appointments 147
To verify the digital signature on a signed message you receive
1. Open the Outlook e-mail message that has been digitally signed.
2. At the top of the message, tap View Signature Status.
3. Tap Menu > Check Certificate.
To view the details of the certificate in the message, tap Menu > View
Certificate.
Note
There can be several reasons why a digital signature is not valid. For example,
the sender’s certificate may have expired, it may have been revoked by the
certificate authority, or the server that verifies the certificate is unavailable.
Contact the sender to report the problem.
148 Working With Company E-mails and Meeting Appointments
To digitally sign and encrypt all messages

11.1 Guidelines and Preparation for Using GPS
•
Do not operate the GPS system while driving.
•
The plotted GPS route is only for driving references. It should not
affect actual driving behavior.
•
Please use the GPS system cautiously. Users shall be liable for any
damages resulting from negligent operation of the system.
•
When using inside a vehicle, please utilise the car holder to mount the
device securely in place. Please avoid the areas shown in the following
diagram:
1. Do not place where it will block the driver’s vision.
2. Do not place at where the air bags are.
3. Do not place anywhere in the vehicle without securing in the
holder.
4. Do not place where the air bags could deploy.
Using GPS 189
•
The GPS signal cannot pass through solid non-transparent objects.
Signal reception may be affected due to obstructions such as highrise buildings, tunnels, bridges, forests, bad weather (rainy or cloudy
days), etc.
•
Signal reception may be affected by obstructions such as high-rise
buildings, tunnels, bridges, forests, weather (rainy or cloudy days),
etc. If the vehicle’s visor contains metal, it will be difficult for the GPS
signal to pass through. To have better signal reception, try connecting
your device to an external GPS antenna.

The Global Positioning System (GPS) is built and operated by the US
Defense Department. The Department is responsible for the accuracy
and maintenance of the system. Any changes that the Department
makes may affect the accuracy and function of the GPS system.
•
Wireless communication products (such as mobile phones or radardetecting devices) may interfere with the satellite signal, resulting in
unstable signal reception.
•
Please do not leave your device in the vehicle and expose to direct
sunlight to avoid overheating the battery that could pose damage to
the device or risk to the vehicle.
190 Using GPS
11.2 Downloading Satellite Data via QuickGPS
Before you start to use your device for GPS navigation, open the QuickGPS
program first to download Ephemeris data (current satellite position and
timing information) onto your device. This data is needed to determine the
GPS position of your current location.
QuickGPS downloads Ephemeris data from a Web server, instead of
from the satellites, using the Internet connection on your device, which
can be via ActiveSync or GPRS. This significantly speeds up the time for
determining your GPS position.
To open QuickGPS
Tap Start > Programs > QuickGPS.
To download data
Tap Download on the QuickGPS screen.
On the screen, initially, you will see the Valid time of the downloaded
data to be 3 days. As days and time pass, the remaining days and time
of validity will be shown.
To speed up GPS positioning, download the latest Ephemeris data
when the validity of the data expires.
Using GPS 191
Download options
To configure download times, tap Menu > Options and choose from the
following options:
•
Remind me when data expires. Enables your device to display
a reminder message when the validity of the Ephemeris data has
expired.
When you see the reminder message, tap Menu to dismiss the
reminder or to set the snooze time so that you will be reminded
again. Tap OK to open the QuickGPS program and download the
latest data.
•
Autodownload when data expires. Allows Ephemeris data to be
automatically updated onto your device when the data has expired.
•
Autodownload when connected to PC via ActiveSync. Allows
Ephemeris data to be automatically downloaded via ActiveSync to
your device when your device is connected to your computer. Your
computer must be connected to the Internet in order to download
data.
Note
The Ephemeris data are stored on HTC Web servers. QuickGPS is
preconfigured to connect to these servers.

11.3 Using TomTom NAVIGATOR
TomTom NAVIGATOR is a GPS navigation software that provides clear
routing directions and vocal instructions to guide you in your journey,
based on the destination address you specified, a contact you selected, a
point of interest, etc. It gives you several choices of routes to select from
when you plan your journey in advance. Places that you frequently go to
can be added as favorites.
Before you start on a journey, use the Map Browser to familiarize yourself
first with the route. Advanced planning is also one of the software’s cool
features, which allows you to find out first which one is the fastest or
shortest route for a trip. Other features include alternative route calculation,
itinerary planning, and more.
To install TomTom NAVIGATOR
Install TomTom NAVIGATOR from the Applications Disc that came with the
device.
To open TomTom NAVIGATOR
To open TomTom NAVIGATOR, do one of the following:
•
Tap Start > Programs > TomTom NAVIGATOR.
•
Tap
on the Today screen.
First-time use
The first time you use TomTom NAVIGATOR, a Setup Wizard opens and asks
you a few questions to set up TomTom NAVIGATOR. Answer each question
by tapping your desired answer on the screen.
A Download Wizard then opens and allows you to download a map of your
choice for free. After the download is completed, the map is automatically
added to TomTom NAVIGATOR.
To determine your current position
You must be outdoors with your device so that the built-in GPS receiver can
determine your current position. The first time you start NAVIGATOR, it can
take up to 5 minutes to find your current position. If it takes longer than
5 minutes, make sure that you are in an open place without tall buildings
Using GPS 193
or trees around you. In the future, your position will be found much faster,
normally within a few seconds.
Tip
For your GPS receiver to determine your current position faster, use
QuickGPS first to download the latest Ephemeris data to your device. For
more information about QuickGPS, see “Downloading Satellite Data via
QuickGPS“ earlier in this chapter.
Driving View
After you have completed the Setup Wizard and Download Wizard,
NAVIGATOR displays the Driving View. The Driving View is shown in black

Safety precautions for RF exposure
•
•
Use only original manufacturer-approved accessories, or accessories
that do not contain any metal.
Use of non-original manufacturer-approved accessories may violate
your local RF exposure guidelines and should be avoided.
Exposure to Radio Frequency (RF) Signals
Your device contains a radio transmitter and receiver. The radiated output
power is far below the international radio frequency exposure limits. 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 international standards bodies:
•
•
•
•
American National Standards Institute (ANSI) IEEE. C95.1-1992
National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurement (NCRP).
Report 86. 1986
International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection
(ICNIRP) 1996
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
measurement known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The standard
incorporates a substantial margin of safety to give additional protection for
the public and to account for any variations in usage.
As with other mobile radio transmitting equipment, users are advised that
for satisfactory operation of the equipment and for the safety of personnel,
Appendix 257
it is recommended that no part of the human body be allowed to come too
close to the antenna during operation of the equipment.
Your device has an internal antenna. Use only the supplied integral antenna.
Use of unauthorized or modified antennas may impair call quality and
damage the phone, causing loss of performance and SAR levels exceeding
the recommended limits as well as result in non-compliance with local
regulatory requirements in your country.
To assure optimal phone performance and ensure human exposure to RF
energy is within the guidelines set forth in the relevant standards; always
use your device only in its normal-use position. Do not touch or hold the
antenna area unnecessarily when placing or receiving a phone call. Contact
with the antenna area may impair call quality and cause your device to
operate at a higher power level than needed. Avoiding contact with the
antenna area when the phone is IN USE optimizes the antenna performance
and the battery life.

Pacemakers
The Health Industry Manufacturers Association recommends that a
minimum separation of six inches be maintained between a handheld
wireless phone and a pacemaker to avoid potential interference with the
pacemaker. These recommendations are consistent with the independent
research by and recommendations of Wireless Technology Research.
Persons with pacemakers:
•
•
•
Should ALWAYS keep the phone more than six inches from their
pacemaker when the phone is turned ON.
Should not carry the phone in a breast pocket.
Should use the ear opposite the pacemaker to minimize the potential
for interference. If you have any reason to suspect that interference is
taking place, turn the phone OFF immediately.
258 Appendix
Hearing Aids
Some digital wireless phones may interfere with some hearing aids. In the
event of such interference, you may want to consult your service provider,
or call the customer service line to discuss alternatives.
Other Medical Devices
If you use any other personal medical device, consult the manufacturer
of your device to determine if they are adequately shielded from external
RF energy. Your physician may be able to assist you in obtaining this
information.
Turn the phone OFF in health care facilities when any regulations posted in
these areas instruct you to do so. Hospitals or health care facilities may be
using equipment that could be sensitive to external RF energy.
WEEE Notice
The Directive on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE), which
entered into force as European law on 13th February 2003, resulted in a
major change in the treatment of electrical equipment at end-of-life.
The purpose of this Directive is, as a first priority, the prevention of WEEE,
and in addition, to promote the reuse, recycling and other forms of recovery
of such wastes so as to reduce disposal.
The WEEE logo (shown at the left) on the product or on its box
indicates that this product must not be disposed of or dumped
with your other household waste. You are liable to dispose of all
your electronic or electrical waste equipment by relocating over
to the specified collection point for recycling of such hazardous
waste. Isolated collection and proper recovery of your electronic
and electrical waste equipment at the time of disposal will
allow us to help conserving natural resources. Moreover, proper
recycling of the electronic and electrical waste equipment will
ensure safety of human health and environment. For more
information about electronic and electrical waste equipment
disposal, recovery, and collection points, please contact your
local city center, household waste disposal service, shop from
