Chapter 1 Introduction
Overview
The Socket Digital Phone Card (DPC) allows you to
connect your data-capable mobile phone to a Windows–
based mobile computer or Apple PowerBook. Now you
can check email, browse the web, connect to your office
network and synchronize files— all wirelessly!
When you use the Digital Phone Card, you don’t need a modem, because
your data-capable mobile phone simulates one. You can use the Digital
Phone Card with any application that you use with a regular modem, such as
for email, file transfers or web browsing.
The DPC fits directly into the CompactFlash I/O slot of a Pocket PC,
Pocket PC 2002, HPC 2000, Palm-size PC, Handheld PC Pro, pen tablet, or
Casio Cassiopeia BE-300 Pocket Manager.
With the included CompactFlash-to-PC Card
adapter, you can also use the DPC in the PC Card
slot of a Pocket PC, HPC 2000, Handheld PC Pro,
Windows 9x/Me/2000/XP notebook or Apple
PowerBook.
Your retail box may not completely list all the mobile phones compatible
with your version of the DPC. For a complete, up-to-date listing, please
visit: www.socketcom.com/product/dpc.htm
For software updates, visit: www.socketcom.com/support/support_dpc.htm
If you have the Windows NT operating system, please call Socket’s
technical support department at 510-744-2720 for compatibility information
and installation instructions.
For more information about mobile phones and wireless data
communications, check out Socket’s white paper, “Mobile Phone Basics,”
at: www.socketcom.com/pdf/wp_mobilephone.pdf
CHAPTER 1: INTRODUCTION | 3
Working Wirelessly with the DPC
Wireless Web Browsing
If you have a web browser on your mobile computer (e.g.,
Pocket Internet Explorer, Netscape, etc.), you can use the DPC to
browse the Internet anytime anywhere within your mobile
phone’s coverage area. Simply use the DPC to wirelessly connect to your
office network or Internet Service Provider (ISP), open your web browser,
then surf the Internet!
Wireless Email
You can set up your mobile computer’s Inbox to directly access
your IMAP4-enabled exchange server or ISP’s POP3 user
accounts. Also, if you have a web browser on your mobile
computer, you can also use html-based email services.
Wireless ActiveSync
While running ActiveSync wirelessly with the DPC, your mobile
computer works as if it were directly connected to a host
computer. For information about ActiveSync, please refer to your
mobile computer’s user manual.

This step is NOT needed for the Casio BE-300 or Apple PowerBooks.
10 | CHAPTER 2: PRELIMINARY SETUP
Chapter 3 Windows CE Setup
This chapter explains Steps 5-8 for a variety of
mobile computers based on Windows CE. Before
starting Steps 5-8, be sure to complete Steps 1-4,
covered in Chapter 2, Preliminary Setup.
Because the interface for different Windows CE-based mobile computers
varies, some parts of this chapter will be divided into sections based on
Windows CE device type.
The two device types include:
• Pocket PC Devices
(i.e., Pocket PCs and Pocket PC 2002s)
• Palm-size and Handheld PC Devices
(i.e., Palm-size PCs, Handheld PC 2000s, Handheld PC Pros, and pen
tablets)
Warning! Pocket PCs are not the same as Palm-size PCs!
Setup differs for the two mobile computers!
Pocket PCs and Pocket PC 2002s are based on Windows CE v3.0, while
Palm-size PCs are based on Windows CE v2.11. If you are not sure whether
you have a Pocket PC or Palm-size PC, you can find out by identifying what
Windows CE version your mobile computer has. This is sometimes labeled
as the Core System Version.
To determine the Windows CE version, go to either:
• Start | Settings | System. On some mobile computers, you may need to
click on the About icon.
• Start | Settings | Control Panel | System. In the System Properties screen,
click on the System tab.
CHAPTER 3: WINDOWS CE SETUP | 11
STEP 5: Install the Software
Important! If you have an HP Jornada 500 series Pocket PC, the software
drivers are pre-installed! Go ahead and insert the card!
For any other Windows CE-based mobile computer, follow these steps
BEFORE inserting the DPC:
1. Make an active partnership between the mobile computer and a host PC.
An active partnership exists if data can be transferred between the
mobile computer and the host PC via a serial/USB/Ethernet connection
cable or cradle.
2. Insert the Socket Digital Phone Card Installation CD into the host PC.
3. Run the SETUP.HTM or SETUP.EXE file on the CD-ROM, depending
on what web browser your host PC uses by default.
! IF YOUR DEFAULT WEB BROWSER IS INTERNET EXPLORER,
run the SETUP.HTM file:
(a) Click Start | Run on the host PC. Type X:\SETUP.HTM
(Replace X with your CD drive letter.)
(b) In the File Download screen, select the option that lets you run
(or open) the file from its current location.
IMPORTANT! YOU MUST RUN THE FILE! DO NOT SAVE IT!
File Download screen from Internet Explorer 5.5
(c) A Security Warning screen will appear. Click Yes.
12 | CHAPTER 3: WINDOWS CE SETUP
!
IF YOUR DEFAULT WEB BROWSER IS NETSCAPE, DO NOT run
the SETUP.HTM file on Netscape, because it will not work properly.
Instead, choose either of two options:
OPTION ONE: Use Internet Explorer to run the SETUP.HTM file.
(a) In the Internet Explorer screen, click File | Open.
(b) In the Open screen, type X:\SETUP.HTM
(Replace X with your CD drive letter.)
Open screen from Internet Explorer 5.5
(c) Proceed with the instructions described on the previous page for
Internet Explorer.
OPTION TWO: Run the SETUP.EXE file.
Click on My Computer or use Windows Explorer to manually browse
the CD to the WinCE folder and manually launch the SETUP.EXE file
found there.
Important! Be sure to choose the SETUP.EXE file, NOT the
SETUP.HTM file. The two file types have different icons:
EXE icon
HTM icon for Netscape
5. Follow the instructions on the host PC screen until setup is done.
Note: After completing setup, your host PC may display an
Application Downloading Complete screen. Click OK.
6. Disconnect the mobile computer from the host computer. Soft reset the
mobile computer. Push the reset button, often on the back of the mobile
computer.
Important! Be sure to soft reset your mobile computer after software
installation! Push the reset button, which may be on the back of your

52 | APPENDIX A: SPECIFICATIONS
Appendix B Hints and Tips
Choosing the Right Applications
Not all applications are ideal for wireless networking. For example,
downloading a large file wirelessly takes longer than it does over a landline
phone line with a regular modem. Experiment with your applications to
determine which ones work best for you wirelessly.
Using Multiple Modems
Pocket PCs and other Windows CE-based mobile computers can support
multiple modems, but you must create a separate dial-up connection for
each modem that you use. When making a data call, you must select the
dial-up connection for the specific modem in use.
To create multiple dial-up networking connections, follow the steps outlined
in the “Set up Remote Networking” section for your mobile computer type,
but include the following modifications:
1. In the Make New Connection screen, when naming connections, select
names that clearly distinguish the modem in use. For example, you might
choose "Internet Service Provider-Wireless" and "Internet Service
Provider-Landline."
2. In the Select a modem: box, choose Socket DPC Connection for a
wireless connection. Choose your existing modem for a landline
connection.
