HARD RESET
TRANSFER YOUR CONTACT INFORMATION
A hard reset will cut off power to your device. This will
erase all records and entries, delete all programs you
have added, and restore the device default factory settings.
Never perform a hard reset unless a soft reset does
not correct your problem. When you perform your next
ActiveSync operation, you can restore any data that you
previously synchronized to your computer or you can
restore data that you have backed up to a storage card.
Use the SIM Manager program on your device if you
would like to transfer contact information from an
existing GSM SIM. See the Sharing Contacts In SIM
Manager section of the User’s Guide.
To perform a hard reset:
1. Press and hold the power button on the front panel of
your device.
2. While holding down the power button, gently press the
tip of the stylus to the reset button. The Confirmation
message box appears.
3. Press the volume key up.
NOTE: When you perform a hard reset, the current date and time will
not be retained. Formats, preferences, and other settings are
restored to their factory default settings.
USING THE INBOX
Use Inbox to send and receive e-mail messages by
doing either of the following:
• Synchronize e-mail messages with Microsoft Exchange
or Microsoft Outlook on your computer.
• Send and receive e-mail messages by connecting directly
to an e-mail server through an Internet service provider
(ISP) or a network. You also can use Inbox to send and
receive SMS; it supports 8 bits data with class 0, 1, 2, 3,
as well as USSD (Unstructured Supplementary Service
Data).
You can compose both e-mail and SMS from the Inbox of
your PPC4100. Messages addressed to a mobile phone
number will be sent via SMS; messages addressed to an
e-mail address will be sent via e-mail. There are two types
of e-mail that can be managed on your device. If you prefer
to use both types, the Inbox supports multiple folders.

comes on indicated by the appearance of the Speakerphone

MUTING A CALL
During a call you can mute the microphone so that the
person with whom you are speaking cannot hear you,
but you can still hear him or her. This is useful if, for
example, you do not want the other person to hear a
conversation or background noise on your side of the
call.
If the battery level becomes low during the course of
normal use, a status icon appears on the device screen
indicating low or very low battery status. When the
battery level is low, perform an ActiveSync operation to
back up your data, then recharge your device as soon
as possible. If the battery level reaches low status, the
device will enter sleep mode; if the battery level
reaches very low status, the device will enter deep
sleep mode. In this case, you have about 72 hours to
recharge your device afterwhich you risk losing all data
on your device’s internal memory.
NOTE: 1. It is more efficient to charge the battery with the handset off.
2. If the LED flickers while charging, the battery contacts may
need cleaning.
3. Battery operating time gradually decreases over time.
4. If the battery fails to perform normally, you may need to
replace the battery.
5. Make sure that the SIM card holder is closed before
charging the device.

When removing the battery follow the steps below.
1. With one hand, press and hold the battery release switch.
2. Slide out the battery pack from its bay.
NOTE: Do not remove the battery pack for more than 30 minutes.
The embedded backup battery cell can only provide power for
this period of time after which you risk losing all data stored
on the internal memory of your device.
