4
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS FOR POWER SUPPLY UNIT
• Use the correct external power source
A product should be operated only from the type of power source indicated on the electrical ratings
label. If you are not sure of the type of power source required, consult your authorized service provider
or local power company. For a product that operates from battery power or other sources, refer to the
operating instructions that are included with the product.
• Handle battery packs carefully
This product contains a Li-ion battery. There is a risk of fire and burns if the battery pack is handled
improperly. Do not attempt to open or service the battery pack. Do not disassemble, crush, puncture,
short external contacts or circuits, dispose of in fire or water, or expose a battery pack to temperatures
higher than 60˚C (140˚F).
WARNING: Danger of explosion if battery is incorrectly replaced. To reduce risk of fire or burns, do not
disassemble, crush, puncture, short external contacts, expose to temperature above 60˚C (140˚F), or
dispose of in fire or water. Replace only with specified batteries. Recycle or dispose of used batteries
according to the local regulations or reference guide supplied with your product.
• Take extra precautions
• Keep the battery or device dry and away from water or any liquid as it may cause a short circuit.
• Keep metal objects away so they don’t come in contact with the battery or its connectors as it may
lead to short circuit during operation.
• Do not use a battery that appears damaged, deformed, or discolored, or the one that has any rust on
its casing, overheats, or emits a foul odour.
• Always keep the battery out of the reach of babies and small children, to avoid swallowing of the
battery. Consult the doctor immediately if the battery is swallowed.
• If the battery leaks:
• Do not allow the leaking fluid to come in contact with skin or clothing. If already in contact, flush
the affected area immediately with clean water and seek medical advice.
• Do not allow the leaking fluid to come in contact with eyes. If already in contact, DO NOT rub; rinse
with clean water immediately and seek medical advice.
• Take extra precautions to keep a leaking battery away from fire as there is a danger of ignition or
explosion.
• Communicate the appropriate steps immediately in case a hazard occurs.
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS FOR DIRECT SUNLIGHT
Keep this product away from excessive moisture and extreme temperatures. Do not leave the product or
its battery inside a vehicle or in places where the temperature may exceed 60°C (140°F), such as on a car
dashboard, window sill, or behind a glass that is exposed to direct sunlight or strong ultraviolet light for
extended periods of time. This may damage the product, overheat the battery, or pose a risk to the vehicle.
PREVENTION OF HEARING LOSS
Caution: Avoid potential hearing loss
Prolonged exposure to loud sounds (including music) is the most common cause of preventable hearing
loss. Some scientific research suggests that using portable audio devices, such as portable music players and
cellular telephones, at high volume settings for long durations may lead to permanent noise-induced hearing
loss. This includes the use of headphones (including headsets, earbuds and Bluetooth® or other wireless
devices). Exposure to very loud sound has also been associated in some studies with tinnitus (a ringing in the
5
ear), hypersensitivity to sound and distorted hearing. Individual susceptibility to noise-induced hearing loss
and other potential hearing problems varies.
The amount of sound produced by a portable audio device varies depending on the nature of the sound, the
device, the device settings and the headphones. You should follow some commonsense recommendations
when using any portable audio device:
• Set the volume in a quiet environment and select the lowest volume at which you can hear adequately.
• When using headphones, turn the volume down if you cannot hear the people speaking near you or if
the person sitting next to you can hear what you are listening to.
• Do not turn the volume up to block out noisy surroundings. If you choose to listen to your portable
device in a noisy environment, use noise-cancelling headphones to block out background
environmental noise.
• Limit the amount of time you listen. As the volume increases, less time is required before your hearing
could be affected.
• Avoid using headphones after exposure to extremely loud noises, such as rock concerts, that might
cause temporary hearing loss. Temporary hearing loss might cause unsafe volumes to sound normal.
• Do not listen at any volume that causes you discomfort. If you experience ringing in your ears, hear
muffled speech or experience any temporary hearing difficulty after listening to your portable audio
device, discontinue use and consult your doctor.

1. Tap Start > Settings > System tab > Screen.
2. On the General tab, tap Align Screen, then follow the on-screen instructions to complete the
calibration.

The device’s display has the following orientation modes: Portrait and Landscape. To change the orientation,
tap Start > Settings > System tab > Screen, and select the orientation you want.
• To smooth the edges of screen fonts for many programs, on the ClearType tab, select the Enable
ClearType check box.
• To increase the readability or to see more content on the screen, on the Text Size tab, adjust the text
size by moving the slider.

3.4 Smart Dialing
Smart Dialing makes it easy for you to dial a phone
number.
When you start entering a phone number or contact
name, Smart Dialing will automatically search and sort the Smart Dialing panel
contact entries in Contacts and the phone numbers in Call
History (including incoming, outgoing, and missed calls).
You can then select the desired number or contact from
the filtered list to dial.
Tips on using Smart Dialing
Smart Dialing starts looking for numbers or contacts that match the sequence you have entered. Below are
some tips on how to use Smart Dialing to quickly find a desired phone number or contact.
To find a phone number
• Simply enter the first one or two digits to find a phone number in Call History.
• Enter the first three digits or more if you want to find a phone number from the saved contacts on your
device.
To find a contact name
You can just enter the first letter of a contact’s first name or surname. Smart Dialing will search for the letter
starting from the first character of a contact name as well as from the character that appears after a space,
dash, or underscore in a contact name. For example, if you tap number “2” which is associated with [a, b, c]
on the Phone keypad, contact names such as the following will be considered matches: “Ben Miller”, “George
Adams”, “John-Carter”, “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”.
Make a call or send a text message using Smart Dialing
1. Press the TALK button on your device to open the Phone screen.
2. Begin entering the first few numbers or characters.
When you start entering a number or letter, the Smart Dialing panel will display matches found.

NAVIGATION up or down.
4. You can do one of the following:
• When the desired contact is selected, press the TALK button to place a call.
• To send a text message to the selected contact, tap and hold the contact, and tap Send Text
Message.
• To call a different phone number associated with the selected contact, tap and hold the selected
contact, and tap the phone number you want to call.

connection to the PC to “pass through” to the network and download Outlook e-mails and other information to
your XV6900.
8.2 Working With Company E-mail
Your XV6900 gives you instant access to your company e-mail and lets you manage your messages easier.
Direct Push, Fetch Mail, Remote e-mail search, and e-mail flags are just some of the tools you can use to
manage your e-mails.
Note
Some messaging features depend on the Microsoft Exchange Server version used in your company. Please
check with your network administrator for the availability of these features.
Automatic synchronization through Direct Push
Direct Push technology (push e-mail feature) enables you to receive new e-mails on your XV6900 as soon as
they arrive in your Inbox on the Exchange Server. With this feature, items such as contacts, calendar and tasks
are also immediately updated onto your XV6900 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 data connection on your
XV6900.
You need to perform a full synchronization between your XV6900 and the Exchange Server first before Direct
Push can be enabled.

Federal Communications Commission Notice
This device complies with part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1)
This device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received,
including interference that may cause undesired operation.
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant
to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful
interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency
energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference
to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular
installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or TV reception, which can be
determined by turning the equipment on and off, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by
one or more of the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is

FCC Hearing-Aid Compatibility (HAC) Regulations for Wireless Devices
On July 10, 2003, the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Report and Order in WT Docket 01309 modified the exception of wireless phones under the Hearing Aid Compatibility Act of 1988 (HAC Act)
to require digital wireless phones be compatible with hearing-aids. The intent of the HAC Act is to ensure
reasonable access to telecommunications services for persons with hearing disabilities.
While some wireless 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 a rating system for wireless phones, to assist hearing device
users find 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 located on the box.
Appendix 143
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.
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. VOGU100 is
rated M3.
Please power off the Bluetooth function while using hearing aid devices with your VOGU100.
Hearing devices may also be rated. Your hearing device manufacturer or hearing health professional may
help you find this rating. Higher ratings mean that the hearing device is relatively immune to interference
noise. The hearing aid and wireless phone rating values are then added together. A sum of 5 is considered
acceptable for normal use. A sum of 6 is considered for better use. A sum of 8 is considered for best use.
In the above example, if a hearing aid meets the M2 level rating and the wireless phone meets the M3 level
rating, the sum of the two values equal M5. This should provide the hearing aid user with “normal usage”
while using their hearing aid with the particular wireless phone. “Normal usage” in this context is defined as a
signal quality that is acceptable for normal operation.
The M mark is intended to be synonymous with the U mark. The T mark is intended to be synonymous
with the UT mark. The M and T marks are recommended by the Alliance for Telecommunications Industries
Solutions (ATIS). The U and UT marks are referenced in Section 20.19 of the FCC Rules. The HAC rating and
measurement procedure are described in the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) C63.19 standard.
