1.3 Battery Information
Your device contains a rechargeable Li-ion polymer battery. Your
device is designed to use only manufacturer-specified original
batteries and accessories. Battery performance depends on
many factors, including your wireless service provider’s network
configuration, signal strength, the temperature of the environment
in which you operate your device, the features and/or settings you
select and use, items attached to your device’s connecting ports,
and your voice, data, and other program usage patterns.
Battery life estimates:
Talk-time: 2.5 – 5 hours
Warning: To reduce risk of fire or burns,
do not disassemble, crush, puncture,
short external contacts, heat above
60oC (140oF), or dispose of in fire or
water. Replace only with manufacturer
specified batteries. Recycle or dispose
of used batteries according to the local
regulations.
Install and Charge the Battery
New batteries are shipped partially charged. Before you can use
your device, you need to install and charge the battery. To install
the battery, slide the battery cover off, and then insert the battery
by aligning the exposed copper part of the battery pack with the
protruding copper conductor. Then, gently push the battery into
place and replace the battery cover.
Some batteries perform best after several full charge/discharge
cycles. The time needed to fully charge the battery is less than 4
hours. You can charge the battery by:
Connecting your device directly to an external power source.
Plugging the device sync cable into the USB port on your PC.

Using ActiveSync
Synchronizing Information
Synchronizing Via Infrared and Bluetooth
Synchronizing Music, Video, and Pictures
4.1 Using ActiveSync
ActiveSync synchronizes information on your Sprint PCS Vision
Smart Device with information on your PC, such as Outlook content.
ActiveSync can also synchronize over a wireless or cellular network
with Microsoft Exchange Server, if your company or service provider is
running Microsoft Exchange Server with Exchange ActiveSync. When
you synchronize, ActiveSync compares the information on your PPC6700 with the information on your PC and/or Exchange Server and
updates all locations with the most recent information.
With ActiveSync, you can:
Synchronize data, such as Outlook E-mail, Contacts, Calendar,
or Tasks information on your PPC-6700 with your PC, as well as
pictures, video, and music.
Synchronize Outlook E-mail, Contacts, Calendar appointments,
and Tasks on your PPC-6700 directly with Exchange Server so
that you can stay up to date even when your PC is turned off.
Exchange files between your PPC-6700 and your PC
without synchronizing.
Select which types of information are synchronized and specify
how much information is synchronized. For example, you
can choose how many weeks of past Calendar appointments
to synchronize.
Before you can synchronize information with a PC, you must first
install ActiveSync on your PC and create a synchronization relationship
between your PPC-6700 and the PC. You can install ActiveSync from the
Getting Started disc that comes with your device. ActiveSync is already
installed on your PPC-6700.
Once you have installed ActiveSync and set up a synchronization
relationship, ActiveSync on the PC recognizes your device when you
connect it, and automatically transfers the synchronization settings
you specified on your PPC-6700.
You may be able to synchronize your device with Exchange Server
through your company or wireless service provider. If you plan to do so,
obtain the name of the Exchange Server, your user name, password,
and domain name from your administrator before starting the Sync
Setup Wizard.
46
Section 4: Synchronizing
To install and set up ActiveSync:
1. Install ActiveSync on your PC. After Setup completes, the
Sync Setup Wizard automatically starts when you connect
your device to the PC.
2. Follow the instructions on the screen to complete the
wizard. In the Sync Setup Wizard, do one or both of the
following:
Create a synchronization relationship between your PC
and the device.
Configure an Exchange Server connection to
synchronize directly with Exchange Server.
3. Choose information types to synchronize.
Note:
When you finish the wizard, ActiveSync synchronizes your
device automatically. Once synchronization completes, you
can disconnect your PPC-6700 from your PC.
4.2 Synchronizing Information
When you connect your Sprint PCS Vision Smart Device to the
PC using a USB cable, an infrared connection, or a Bluetooth
connection, ActiveSync will immediately synchronize. While the
device is connected, ActiveSync synchronizes every time you make a
change on either the PC or the device.
Synchronize Outlook Information
If you have set up a synchronization relationship between your
PPC-6700 and the PC, synchronization keeps Outlook information
up-to-date in both your device and PC. ActiveSync synchronizes
a limited amount of information by default to save storage
space on your device. You can change the amount of information
synchronized for a given information type in Settings for the
information type.
Section 4: Synchronizing
47
You can set up your PPC-6700 to synchronize with more than
one PC or with a combination of one or more PCs and Exchange
Server. When synchronizing with multiple computers, the items
that you synchronize will appear on all of the computers with
which they are synchronized. For example, if you have set up
synchronization with two PCs (PC1 and PC2), which have different
items, and you synchronize Contacts and Calendar on the device
with both computers, the result is as follows:
Location
New state
PC1
All Outlook contacts and calendar appointments that
were on PC2 are now also on PC1.
PC2
All Outlook contacts and calendar appointments that
were on PC1 are now also on PC2.
Device
All Outlook contacts and calendar appointments from
both PC1 and PC2 are on the device.
Note:
Outlook e-mail can be synchronized with only one computer.

5.6 Resetting Your Sprint PCS Vision
Smart Device
Occasionally you may need to reset your Sprint PCS Vision Smart
Device. A normal (or soft) reset of your PPC-6700 clears all active
program memory and shuts down all active programs. This can be
useful when the device is running slower than normal, or a program
is not performing properly. A soft reset is also necessary after the
installation of some programs. If a soft reset is performed when
programs are running, unsaved work will be lost.
You can also perform a hard reset (also known as a full reset). A hard
reset should be performed only if a normal reset does not solve
a system problem. After a hard reset, the device is restored to its
default settings — the way it was when you first purchased it and
turned it on. Any programs you installed, data you entered, and
settings you customized on the device will be lost. Only Windows
Mobile software and other pre-installed programs will remain.
To perform a soft reset:

Use the stylus to lightly press and hold the RESET button
on the bottom of your PPC-6700. The device restarts, and
then displays the Today screen.

for your PPC-6700.
To do so, create a Bluetooth modem connection on your
PPC-6700 and then send information to another device by using
Bluetooth. The device relays the information over the network
and then sends back to your device any information that you
had requested over the connection. Once you create a modem
connection to the Bluetooth phone, you can reuse it whenever
you want to use the phone as a modem. Make sure that your
PPC-6700 and the destination device are turned on, Bluetooth is
turned on, and that the devices are within close range.
To accept a Bluetooth partnership:
1. On your PPC-6700, tap Start > Settings > Connections
tab > Connections.
2. Tap Add a new modem connection.
3. Enter a name for the connection. In the Select a modem list
box, select Bluetooth. Then, tap Next.
4. If the device appears in the My Connections list, skip to
step 9.
5. If the device does not appear in the My Connections list,
tap New Partnership, and follow the remaining steps.
6. Select the device name from the list, and then tap Next.
7. Enter a passkey, and then tap Next.
8. Enter the same passkey on the device, and then tap Finish.
9. Select the device in the My Connections list, and then
tap Next.
10. Enter the phone number to dial for this connection, and
then tap Next.
11. Enter the required logon information for this connection,
and then tap Finish.
You can start using this service for the program that uses the
Bluetooth connection, such as Inbox on your PPC-6700, to send
and receive e-mail, or Internet Explorer to browse the Web.

of account you have:
 To send and receive e-mail for an Outlook E-mail account,
begin synchronization through ActiveSync. For more
information, see “Synchronizing Outlook information” in
Section 4.
 To send and receive e-mail messages for an e-mail account
that you have with an Internet Service Provider (ISP) or that
you access using a VPN server connection (typically a work
account), download messages through a remote e-mail
server. For more information, see “To download messages
from the server” later in this section.
 Text messages are automatically received when your phone
is turned on. When your phone is turned off (in flight mode),
messages are delivered the next time your phone is
turned on.
To download messages from the server:
To send and receive e-mail messages for an e-mail account
that you have with an Internet Service Provider (ISP) or that
you access using a VPN server connection (typically a work
account), you first need to connect to the Internet or your
corporate network, depending on the account.
1. Tap Menu > Switch Accounts to select the account you
want to use.
2. Tap Menu > Send/Receive. The messages on your PPC-6700
and e-mail server are synchronized: new messages are
downloaded to the device Inbox folder, messages in the
device Outbox folder are sent, and messages that have
been deleted from the server are removed from the device
Inbox folder.
Section 7: Exchanging Messages
97
Tip:
If you want to read the entire message, tap Menu > Download
Message while in the message window. If you are in the
message list, tap and hold the message, and tap Menu >
Download Message. The message will download the next time
you send and receive e-mail. This will also download message
attachments if you selected those options when you set up
the e-mail account.
Manage Folders
Each Messaging account has its own folder hierarchy with five
default Messaging folders: Inbox, Outbox, Deleted Items, Drafts,
and Sent Items. The messages you receive and send through the
account are stored in these folders. You can also create additional
folders within each hierarchy. The Deleted Items folder contains
messages that have been deleted on the device. The behavior
of the Deleted Items and Sent Items folders depends on the
Messaging options you have chosen.
If you use an Outlook E-mail account, e-mail messages in the
Inbox folder in Outlook will be synchronized automatically with
your PPC-6700. You can elect to synchronize additional folders
by designating them for synchronization. The folders you create
and the messages you move will then be mirrored on the e-mail
server. For example, if you move two messages from the Inbox
folder to a folder named Family, and you have designated Family
for synchronization, the server creates a copy of the Family folder
and copies the messages to that folder. You can then read the
messages while you are away from your PC.
If you use a text message account, messages are stored in the
Inbox folder. If you use a POP3 account and you move e-mail
messages to a folder you created, the link is broken between the
messages on the device and their copies on the e-mail server.
The next time you connect, the e-mail server will detect that the
messages are missing from the Inbox folder on the device and
will delete them from the e-mail server. This prevents having
duplicate copies of a message, but it also means that you will no
longer have access to messages that you move to folders created
from anywhere except the device.
98
Section 7: Exchanging Messages
If you use an IMAP4 account, the folders you create and the
e-mail messages you move are mirrored on the e-mail server.
Therefore, messages are available to you anytime you connect to
your e-mail server, whether it is from your PPC-6700 or PC. This
synchronization of folders occurs whenever you connect to your
e-mail server, create new folders, or rename/delete folders when
connected. You can also set different download options for
each folder.

About Licenses and Protected Files
Some content (such as digital media files downloaded from
the Internet, CD tracks, and videos) have associated licenses
that protect them from being unlawfully distributed or shared.
Licenses are created and managed by using digital rights
management (DRM), which is the technology for securing
content and managing its access rights. Some licenses may
prevent you from playing files that have been copied to your
Sprint PCS Vision Smart Device. Files that have licenses associated
with them are called “protected files.”
If you want to copy a protected file from your PC to your device
use the desktop Player to synchronize the file to the device
(instead of dragging the file from a folder on your PC to a folder
on the device, for example). This will ensure that the license is
copied along with the protected file. For more information about
synchronizing files to your PPC-6700 and other mobile devices,
see desktop Player Help.
Note:
130
You can view the protection status for a file by checking its file
properties (tapping Menu > Properties).

Using Your Phone With a Hearing Aid Device
Your PPC-6700 has been tested for hearing aid device compatibility.
When 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 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 will have the rating on the
box. Your PPC-6700 has an M3 rating.
Phones rated M3 or M4 meet FCC requirements and
Note: may generate less interference to hearing devices than
phones that are not labeled. M4 is the better/higher of
the two ratings.
Appendix
145
The M3/M4 ratings do not guarantee successful interoperation
between your phone and hearing aid device. Results will vary
depending on the level of immunity of your hearing device and
degree of your hearing loss.
The more immune your hearing aid device is, the less likely you
are to experience interference noise from your wireless phone.
Hearing aid devices should have ratings similar to phones. Ask
your hearing healthcare professional for the rating of your aids.
Most new hearing aids have at least an M2 immunity level. Add
the “M” ratings of your hearing aid and your phone to determine
probable usability:
 Any combined rating equal to or greater than six offers best use.
 Any combined rating equal to five is considered normal use.
 Any combined rating equal to four is considred usable.
Thus, if you pair an M3 hearing aid with an M3 phone, you will have
a combined rating of six for “best use.”
Sprint further suggests you experiment with multiple phones (even
those not labeled M3 or M4) while in the store to find the one that
works best with your hearing aid device. Should you experience
interference after purchasing your phone, promptly return it to the
store. With the Sprint 14-day Risk-Free Guarantee you may return
the phone within 14 days of purchase for a full refund.
Getting the Best Hearing Device Experience With
Your Sprint PCS Phone
To further minimize interference:
There is usually less interference on the microphone setting than
the telecoil setting.
 Set the phone’s Display and Keypad backlight settings to
ensure the minimum time interval.
 Use phones with a pull-out antenna. Phones with embedded
antennae may produce more interference.
 Position the phone so the antenna is farthest from your hearing
aid.
146
 Move the phone around to find the point with least interference.

SAR Information
SAR: 1.098 W/kg @1g (USA)
THIS MODEL DEVICE MEETS THE GOVERNMENT’S REQUIREMENTS
FOR EXPOSURE TO RADIO WAVES.
Your wireless mobile CDMA phone 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. 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 both U.S. and 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 CDMA phone employs
a unit of measurement known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or
SAR. The SAR limit set by the FCC is 1.6W/kg*.
Appendix
149
For body worn operation, this phone has been tested and meets
the FCC RF exposure guidelines when used with an accessory that
contains no metal and that position the antenna of the CDMA
phone a minimum of 1.5cm from the body. The SAR values of this
CDMA phone are 0.573 W/g (body) and 1.098 W/g (head). Use
of other accessories may not ensure compliance with the FCC RF
exposure guidelines.
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this model
device with all reported SAR levels evaluated as in compliance
with the FCC RF exposure guidelines. SAR information on this
model 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: NM8PA10A. Additional information on
Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) can be found on the Cellular
Telecommunications & Internet Association (CTIA) website as
http://www.phonefacts.net.
* In the U.S. and Canada, the SAR limit for mobile CDMA phone
used by the public is 1.6 Watts/kg (W/kg) averaged over one
gram of tissue. The standard incorporates a substantial margin of
safety to give additional protection for the public and to account
for any variations in usage.
Normal condition only to ensure the radiative performance
and safety of the interference. As with other mobile radio
transmitting equipment, users are advised that for satisfactory
operation of the equipment and for the safety of personnel, it
is recommended that no part of the human body be allowed

Some users of ActiveSync® 4.0 have reported challenges when
using the USB connection of their personal computer to connect
to a device with Windows Mobile 5.0. In many cases, these
challenges are likely caused by interoperability with desktop
firewall applications or applications that manage network traffic.
These applications appear to conflict with the TCP traffic between
a device and the PC.
An update for ActiveSync is scheduled to be available in late
November, but customers may also resolve the issue manually
immediately by visiting :
www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/activesync4.
This issue only affects people with new devices just coming to
market and running Windows Mobile 5.0 software, and only
when synchronizing directly to a PC when using a USB connection
(wireless synchronization via Bluetooth, infra-red or directly to a

GARANTIE LIMITÉE D’UN AN
UTStarcom Personal Communications (« Utstarcom ») garantit à l’acheteur de détail initial (« l’Acheteur ») que ce produit Utstarcom sera
exempt de vices de matériaux et d’exécution dans des conditions normales d’utilisation pendant une période d’un an depuis la date de l’achat
initial à Utstarcom ou à un revendeur Utstarcom agréé. Votre reçu daté montrant la date d’achat constitue votre preuve de la date d’achat.
LIMITES DE GARANTIE
Dans les douze (12) premiers mois suivant la date d’achat, la seule obligation d’Utstarcom en vertu de cette garantie explicite consistera à
réparer ou remplacer les pièces ou le produit défectueux (à l’aide de pièces neuves ou reconstruites). Si la réparation ou le remplacement
n’est pas raisonnablement praticable, Utstarcom peut, à son entière discrétion, rembourser à l’Acheteur le prix d’achat payé pour le produit.
Pour obtenir des réparations ou un remplacement en vertu des modalités de la présente garantie, le produit doit être livré avec une preuve
de couverture de garantie (par exemple, une facture datée), l’adresse de retour du consommateur, son numéro de téléphone au travail et/ou
numéro de télécopieur et une description complète du problème, frais de transport prépayés, à la Société à l’adresse apparaissant ci-après
ou au point d’achat pour réparation ou remplacement.
L’ÉTENDUE DE LA RESPONSABILITÉ D’UTSTARCOM EN VERTU DE LA PRÉSENTE GARANTIE EST LIMITÉE À LA RÉPARATION OU AU
REMPLACEMENT COMME PRÉVU CI-DESSUS ET LA RESPONSABILITÉ D’UTSTARCOM NE DÉPASSERA EN AUCUN CAS LE PRIX D’ACHAT
PAYÉ PAR L’ACHETEUR POUR LE PRODUIT.
Les produits accessoires, y compris ceux apparaissant dans le catalogue Utstarcom applicable, ne sont pas couverts par la présente garantie
limitée.
Utstarcom ne sera pas responsable des logiciels, microprogrammes, informations ou données de mémoire contenus dans tout produit
renvoyé à Utstarcom pour réparation sous garantie ou non, ou stockés sur ces produits ou intégrés à ceux-ci. Utstarcom n’est responsable
d’aucun dommage causé par le produit ou les défaillances du produit, y compris la perte de bénéfices, la perte d’économies, les dommages
indirects ou ancillaires. Utstarcom n’est responsable d’aucune réclamation faite par un tiers ou faite par vous pour le compte d’un tiers.
La présente garantie limitée ne s’applique pas aux dommages physiques à la surface du produit, y compris le bris, les fissures ou les rayures
sur l’affichage à cristaux liquides ou le boîtier extérieur. En outre, la présente garantie limitée ne couvre aucun produit dont le numéro de
série a été supprimé ou aucun produit qui a été : (a) abîmé ou rendu défectueux par une utilisation erronée ou abusive, un accident ou autres
causes externes ; (b) soumis à une modification, altération ou réparation non autorisée ; ou (c) exploité dans un environnement inadéquat
ou d’une manière non prévue. Les acheteurs seront facturés au titre de toutes les réparations au produit pour dommages ou défaillance non
couverts par la présente garantie limitée.
TOUTES LES GARANTIES IMPLICITES, Y COMPRIS TOUTE GARANTIE IMPLICITE DE COMMERCIALISATION, SERONT LIMITÉES À LA DURÉE
DE CETTE GARANTIE ÉCRITE. TOUTE ACTION AU TITRE DE LA RUPTURE DE TOUTE GARANTIE EN VERTU DES PRÉSENTES, Y COMPRIS
TOUTE GARANTIE IMPLICITE DE COMMERCIALISATION, DOIT ÊTRE INTENTÉE DANS UN DÉLAI DE 24 MOIS DE LA DATE DE L’ACHAT
INITIAL. LA SOCIÉTÉ NE SERA EN AUCUN CAS RESPONSABLE DES DOMMAGES INDIRECTS OU ANCILLAIRES POUR RUPTURE DE CETTE
GARANTIE OU DE TOUTE AUTRE GARANTIE, EXPLICITE OU IMPLICITE, DE QUELQUE NATURE QUE CE SOIT.
Certains états ou juridictions ne permettent aucune limite à la durée d’une garantie implicite, ni l’exclusion ou la limitation des dommages
indirects ou ancillaires pour les produits de consommation ; il se peut donc que les exclusions ou limitations ci-dessus ne s’appliquent pas à
vous. Cette garantie limitée vous donne des droits précis et vous pouvez également avoir d’autres droits qui peuvent varier d’un état à l’autre
ou d’une juridiction à l’autre. Veuillez vous reporter aux lois applicables pour déterminer entièrement vos droits.
