Introduction to Your
Treo™ 180 Communicator
This chapter explains the physical buttons and controls on your Treo™ 180 communicator, how
to use your communicator for the first time, and how to install Palm™ Desktop software and the
HotSync® Manager synchronization software so you can synchronize your communicator and
your computer.
Getting to know your communicator
What is a Treo communicator?
Your Treo communicator combines the power of a full-featured mobile phone, e-mail, SMS
messaging, a Palm OS® handheld, and the Internet in one compact and indispensable device.
With your Treo communicator, you can do everything you can do with your existing mobile phone
with greater speed and ease. You can store thousands of numbers in your PhoneBook and up to
50 speed dial entries, and dial any of them with just a few keystrokes. You can even set up a
3-way conference call by joining two calls and use the personal speakerphone for hands-free use
without a headset attachment.
Lighten your load. Everything you need is in one compact device. Your Treo communicator helps
you stay in touch. With instant access to your e-mail, you can send and receive e-mail from
anywhere, and use SMS messaging to exchange quick messages with other mobile phones on
your network. The award-winning Blazer™ web browser gives you access to any site on the
Internet—not just a few optimized for mobile access; now you can download directions, confirm
flight reservations, find a restaurant, and check stock prices wherever you are. Everything you
need to stay organized is close at hand on your communicator, including popular Palm OS
applications such as Date Book Plus, PhoneBook, To Do List, Memo Pad and more.
To make sure you don’t lose any of this important information, you can synchronize your data with
desktop software on your computer so you always have a backup copy.
Chapter 1

System requirements
To install and operate Palm Desktop software and the HotSync Manager synchronization
software, your computer system must meet the following requirements:
Minimum requirements
■
Mac OS 8.5 or later with USB port (for USB HotSync® cable)
■
Apple Macintosh or compatible computer with a PowerPC processor
■
8 MB RAM (memory) minimum, 16 MB recommended
■
25 MB available hard disk space
■
VGA monitor or better
■
CD-ROM drive (you can also download Palm Desktop software from www.handspring.com)
■
Mouse
Upgrade information
If you already own a Palm OS® handheld, Handspring recommends that you install the version of
Palm Desktop software that comes with your Treo communicator into the same folder as your
current Palm Desktop software. When you install the new version in the same folder as the
previous version, all your data is preserved. If you use another personal information manager
(PIM), you still need to install Palm Desktop software in order to update the HotSync Manager on
your computer.
You perform HotSync operations in exactly the same way, so you can quickly synchronize your
old data with your new communicator.
To upgrade:
1. Synchronize your old communicator with your old Palm Desktop software. This ensures that
the latest information from your communicator is on your desktop computer.
2. (Optional) To ensure against any data loss, go to the folder that stores Palm Desktop
software (this is usually the Handspring or Palm folder), copy (do not move) your user name
folder, and store the copy outside the Palm Desktop software folder.
3. Follow the installation instructions that begin on page 25. Be sure to install the new software
in the same folder as the old software.
4. Connect your new communicator to the HotSync cable and press the HotSync button on the
cable. If the User dialog box appears, select your user name.
5. Compare the applications on your old handheld and your new communicator.
6. Beam any third party applications that did not transfer from your old handheld to your new
communicator, or install them from the original files.
Page 12
Introduction to Your Treo™ 180 Communicator
Each device must have a unique name
After you complete the upgrade process described above, you have two devices with the same
name. This is an undesirable situation. Each device must have a unique name in order to prevent
unexpected results during HotSync operations and other complications.
We strongly recommend that you perform a hard reset on your old handheld. See page 203 for
details.
A hard reset not only erases all data from the old handheld; it also erases the name and makes
that handheld a clean slate, ready to receive a new name. The next time you perform a HotSync
operation with this old handheld, you are asked to give it a name. Be sure to give it a unique name.

Charging the battery
To use your communicator, you must connect the travel charger or the HotSync cable and charge
the battery. When you’re near your computer, connect your communicator to the HotSync cable
with the travel charger connected to a wall outlet as shown in the section that begins on page 24.
When travelling, connect the travel charger cable directly to your communicator as shown in this
section.
When wireless mode is on, a fully charged battery provides approximately 2.5 hours of talk time
or 60 hours of standby time. When wireless mode is off, a fully charged battery provides
approximately three weeks of use in handheld mode.
If the battery drains to the point where your communicator does not turn on, it stores your data
safely for about three days. Therefore, we recommend that you charge the battery daily to avoid
potential data loss. See Appendix A for tips on extending the life of the battery.
To charge the battery with the travel charger:
1. Plug the travel charger into a wall outlet.
2. With the word “UP” facing up (as shown), connect the travel charger cable to the charger
connector on the bottom of your communicator.
LED
Tip:
The LED is solid red while your communicator charges. When the LED turns solid green,
your communicator is charged. It takes approximately 90 minutes to charge a fully
drained battery.
Chapter 1
Page 17
Turning your Treo on and off
Your Treo communicator has two operating modes: a handheld mode and a wireless mode. You
can turn the handheld mode and the wireless mode on and off independent of each other. When
you turn on the handheld mode, you can use organizer applications such as Date Book Plus and
To Do List. When you turn on the wireless mode, you can make or receive calls. You can also turn
both modes on at the same time. When both the handheld and wireless modes are on, you can
use the organizer applications as well as send and receive calls.
To turn handheld mode on and off, do any of the following:
■
Open the lid to turn it on, or close the lid to turn it off.
■
Press the power button.
■
Press and release the jog rocker.
■
Press any application button on the front of your communicator.
To turn wireless mode on and off:
■
Press and hold the power button until you hear the confirmation tones to turn wireless mode
on and off. The ascending tone indicates wireless mode is now on and the descending tone
indicates wireless mode is now off.
Using the backlight
If you have difficulty seeing the information on your communicator in dark environments, you can
use the backlight to illuminate the images on the screen.
Note:
If you have difficulty seeing the screen in well-lit environments, adjust the contrast instead
of using the backlight. See page 13 for details.
To turn the backlight on and off:
■
Press the power button twice in quick succession.
Backlight tips:
■
The backlight turns on automatically when an incoming call “wakes up” your communicator.
■
The backlight also turns off automatically (after a period of inactivity) with the Auto-off
feature. See page 173 for details.
Page 18
Introduction to Your Treo™ 180 Communicator
Adjusting the contrast
The contrast control screen enables you to adjust the appearance of your communicator screen
for the clearest screen display. Depending on the lighting conditions or temperature of the
environment where you use your communicator, you may need to adjust the contrast.
To adjust the contrast:
1. Press Option

Using the stylus to get things done
Like using a mouse to click elements on a computer screen, using the stylus to tap elements on
your communicator screen is a way to get things done on your communicator.
The first time you start your communicator, setup instructions appear on the screen. These
instructions include a calibration screen, or digitizer. Calibration aligns the internal circuitry of your
communicator with its touch-sensitive screen so that when you tap an element on the screen, the
communicator can detect exactly which task you want to perform.
Important:
Always use the point of the stylus for tapping the communicator screen. Never use
an actual pen, pencil, or other sharp object to tap the communicator screen.
With your communicator turned on, you can tap the communicator screen to perform many
operations, such as the following:
■
Open applications
■
Choose menu commands
■
Initiate a global Find operation
■
Select options in dialog boxes
Just as you can drag the mouse to select text or move objects on your computer, you can also
drag the stylus to select text. You can also use the stylus to drag the slider of any scroll bar.

Introduction to Your Treo™ 180 Communicator
Using desktop software
When you use desktop software with HotSync technology, you can do any of the following:
■
Work with your communicator applications on your computer. Most desktop software
applications duplicate many of the applications on your communicator, so you can view, enter,
and modify most of the data stored on your communicator.
■
Back up and synchronize data between your communicator and your computer.
Synchronization is a one-step procedure that ensures that changes you make on your
communicator or desktop software appear in both places. See the section that begins on
page 74 for details.
■
Configure the wireless data features of your Treo.
■
Import and export data, so you can easily transfer data from other desktop applications into
many of your applications. See the section that begins on page 34 for details.
■
Print data from your desktop software on any printer.
Palm Desktop software
Your communicator comes with Palm Desktop software. Palm Desktop software includes many
of the same applications as your communicator: Daily Calendar (Date Book Plus), Contact List
(the Contacts view in PhoneBook), Task (To Do List), and Note (Memo Pad).
The following instructions guide you through installing Palm Desktop software. After installation,
refer to the online Help in Palm Desktop software for information about how to use the software.
Note:
You must install the software that comes with your Treo communicator even if you
already installed Palm Desktop software for a previous Palm OS handheld.
To ensure a safe and uninterrupted installation of Palm Desktop software, please do not simply
copy the Palm Desktop software files to your computer’s hard disk. You must use the installer to
place the files in their proper locations and to decompress the files.
To install Palm Desktop software:
1. Connect the HotSync cable. See page 24 for instructions.
2. Exit any open programs, including those that run at startup, and disable any virus-scanning
software.
3. Insert the Handspring CD-ROM into the computer’s CD-ROM drive.
4. Double-click the Handspring CD icon on the desktop.
5. Double-click the Installer icon to begin the installation process.
6. Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the installation and to configure your Treo for
wireless data communication.
When the set up process is done, the installation screen closes automatically.
Chapter 1
Page 25
Using your communicator with another PIM
If you prefer to use another personal information manager (PIM), you can use it if third-party
connection software, called a conduit, is available for your PIM. You must install the software that
came with your Treo communicator along with the conduit for your PIM to synchronize the data
between your communicator and your PIM. For information on conduit software, go to this web
site: www.handspring.com.
Using an e-mail application with your communicator
Your communicator comes with the One-Touch Mail™ by JP Mobile e-mail application.
Note:
To use a wireless e-mail application, your wireless service provider must support data
services and it must be part of your service package (some wireless service providers may
require you to sign up for data services separately). You must also have an account
established with an ISP (Internet Service Provider). Many wireless service providers also
provide ISP services. If ISP information is available from your wireless service provider
when you configure your wireless communication settings with the Handspring CD-ROM,
the installation program sets up your communicator for use with that provider.
One-Touch Mail
One-Touch Mail is a wireless e-mail application that enables you to access your ISP (POP3
account) e-mail directly from your communicator. You may also be able to use One-Touch Mail
to access your corporate e-mail; contact your System Administrator for assistance.
To install One-Touch Mail, do one of the following:
■
Select the One-Touch Mail option when you configure the wireless communication features
using the Handspring CD-ROM.
■
If you already installed the desktop software from the Handspring CD-ROM but didn’t install
this application, double-click the Configure Your Treo icon in the Handspring folder.

Using menus
Menus on your communicator are easy to use. Once you have mastered them in one application,
you can use them the same way in all other applications.
The menus and menu commands that are available depend on the application. Also, the menus
and menu commands vary depending on which part of the application you’re using. For example,
in Memo Pad, the menus are different for the Memo list screen and the Memo screen.
The menus of each application are illustrated in the section on that application in Chapter 6. The
Edit menu is described in the section that begins on page 60.
To use the menu bar:
1. Open an application (such as Memo Pad).
2. Press Menu
Tip:

Pro, be sure to export the database to the Tab-Separated Text file type. In ClarisWorks, be sure
to save the database in ASCII text format and give it a different name so you don't overwrite the
original file.
You can import data from a Newton that uses Newton Operating System 1.0. Simply use the
Newton Connection Kit to export data from the Newton Names file, Date Book Calendar file, and
Notepad, and then import the resulting files into Palm™ Desktop software. The Newton
Connection Kit does not work with Newton Operating System 2.0.
To import data:
1. Export a text file from the other product.
2. Open Palm Desktop software.
3. From the File menu, choose Import.

Installing and removing applications
This section explains how to install and remove applications on your communicator and how to
remove Palm™ Desktop software from your computer.
Installing add-on applications
Your communicator comes with the PhoneBook, Date Book Plus, Blazer (or another web browser
installed by your wireless service provider), SMS Messaging, To Do List, Memo Pad, Expense,
Calculator, CityTime, SIM Book, and SIM Services applications installed and ready to use. The
Handspring CD-ROM also includes e-mail applications which you can install when you configure
the wireless portion of your communicator with the CD-ROM.
You can also install additional applications on your communicator, such as business applications,
games, and other software. The Install Handheld Files dialog box makes it easy to install software
on your communicator during a HotSync® operation. There are a variety of third-party applications
available for devices that use Palm OS software. To learn more about these applications, go to
the web site: www.handspring.com.
When you download an add-on application from the Internet, it is probably in a compressed format
such as a .zip or .sit file. If you have a decompression utility on your computer, use it to decompress
the .prc and .pdb files inside the compressed file. If you do not have a decompression utility,
search the Internet using phrases like 'zip decompression' or 'how to unzip'. This will lead you to
various third-party utilities that you can use to decompress any kind of compressed or
downloaded file--not just add-ons for your communicator. After you install the utility, you are ready
to decompress the add-on application files that you downloaded.
Note:
Any applications that you install on your communicator resides in RAM memory; you can
delete them at any time.
To install add-on software on your communicator:
You can also install an application by simply double-clicking the application’s icon.
Tip:
1. Copy or download the application you want to install into the add-on folder in your Palm folder
on your computer.
Page 40
Managing Your Applications

Applications Overview
Chapter 5
Common Tasks
In addition to the wireless communication applications, your Treo™ 180 communicator also
includes a full suite of personal information manager (PIM) applications: Date Book Plus, the
Contacts view in PhoneBook, To Do List, Memo Pad, and Expense. This chapter provides
instructions on how to do tasks that are common to several applications. It’s easy to transfer what
you learn in one application to the other applications because the structure and behavior of all
these applications are quite similar.
Throughout this chapter, the term “record” is used to refer to an individual item in any of the PIM
applications: a single Date Book Plus event, Contacts entry in PhoneBook, To Do List item, Memo
Pad memo, or Expense item.
Creating records
You can use the following procedure to create a new record in Date Book Plus, the Contacts view
in PhoneBook, and Expense.
To create a record:
1. Open the application in which you want to create a record.
2. Press Menu
.
3. Under Record, select New… (/N).
4. In Date Book Plus only: Select start and end times for your event, and then hold Option
and press Return
.
5. Enter text for the record.
Note:
You do not have to press Shift
to capitalize the first letter of the name. Your
communicator automatically capitalizes the first letter of each field (except numeric
and e-mail fields).
6. Use the scroll buttons, roll the jog rocker or tap a field directly to move between fields.
7. (Optional) Tap Details to select attributes for the record.
8. In Contacts view in PhoneBook only: Hold Option
and press Return
to finish.
There’s no need to save the record because your communicator saves it automatically.
Chapter 5

Editing records
After you create a record, you can change, delete, or enter new text at any time. Two screen
features tell you when your communicator is in editing mode:
■
A blinking cursor
■
One or more edit lines
Blinking cursor
Edit line
Entering text
For information on how to enter text using the keyboard on your communicator, the onscreen
keyboard, or the keyboard attached to your computer, see Chapter 2.
Edit menu
The Edit menu is available with any screen where you enter or edit text. In general, commands
available in the Edit menu apply to text that you select (or highlight) in an application.
To select text in an application:
1. Tap the beginning of the text that you want to select.
2. Drag the stylus over the text to highlight it. You can drag across the text to select additional
words, or drag down to select a group of lines.
Tip:

The following commands may appear in an Edit menu:
Undo
Reverses the action of the last edit command. For example, if you used
Cut to remove text, Undo restores the text you removed. Undo also
reverses deletions done by using backspace.
Cut
Removes the selected text and stores it temporarily in the memory of your
communicator. You can paste the text you cut into another area of the
current application or into a different application.
Page 60
Common Tasks
Copy

Page 61
Other ways to delete records
You can also delete records in the following ways:
■
In the Details dialog box of the application, tap Delete, and then hold Option
Return
■
and press
to finish.
Delete the text of the record.
Note:
In Date Book Plus, if you delete the text of a repeating event, you delete all instances
of that event.
Purging records
Over time, as you use Date Book Plus, To Do List, and Expense, you’ll accumulate records in these
applications that have outlived their usefulness. For example, events that occurred months ago
remain in the Date Book Plus, and To Do items that you marked as completed remain in the list,
as do Expense items.
All these outdated records take up memory on your communicator, so it’s a good idea to remove
them by using Purge. If you think Date Book Plus or To Do List records might prove useful later,
you can purge them from your communicator and save them in an archive file.
Purging is not available in the Contacts view in PhoneBook or in Memo Pad. So you need to
delete outdated records from these applications individually.
To purge records:
1. Open the application.
2. Press Menu
.
3. Under Record, select Purge (/E).
A confirmation dialog box appears.
Date Book Plus: Tap the pick list and select how old a record must be to be purged. Purge
deletes repeating events if the last of the series ends before the date that you purge records.
Date Book Plus, To Do List: If you want to save a copy of the purged records to an archive
file on your desktop, be sure that the check box is checked. If you don’t want to save a copy,
tap the check box to remove the check box.
4. Hold Option
and press Return
to finish.
If you chose to save a copy of the purged records, your communicator transfers them to an archive
file on your desktop the next time you perform a HotSync operation.
Note:
Page 62
Purging does not happen automatically. You must use the command to make it happen.
Common Tasks
Categorizing records
Categorize records in the Contacts view in PhoneBook, To Do List, Memo Pad, and Expense
applications so that they are grouped logically and are easy to review. (You can also categorize
applications. See page 37 for details.)
When you create a record, your communicator automatically places it in the category that is
currently displayed. If the category is All, your communicator assigns it to the Unfiled category.
You can leave an entry as Unfiled or assign it to a category at any time.
System-defined and user-defined categories
By default, your communicator includes system-defined categories, such as All and Unfiled, and
user-defined categories, such as Business and Personal.
You cannot modify the system-defined categories, but you can rename and delete the userdefined categories. In addition, you can create your own user-defined categories. You can have
a maximum of 15 user-defined categories in each application.
The Contacts view in PhoneBook contains the QuickList user-defined category, in which you can
store the names, addresses, and phone numbers you might need in emergencies (doctor, fire
department, lawyer, etc.).
Expense contains two user-defined categories, New York and Paris, to show how you might sort
your expenses for different business trips.
Note:
The illustrations in this section come from Memo Pad, but you can use these procedures
in all the applications in which categories are available. Categories are not available in
Date Book Plus.

Exchanging and updating data:
HotSync operations
The HotSync process automatically synchronizes — that is, exchanges and updates — data
between your communicator and desktop software. Changes you make on your communicator or
desktop software appear in both places after a HotSync operation. HotSync technology
synchronizes only the needed portions of files, thus reducing synchronization time. You can
synchronize your data directly by connecting your communicator to your computer with the
HotSync cable or by beaming the data from the IR port on your communicator to the IR port on
your computer, or indirectly with a modem or network. See Chapter 8 for information about
performing HotSync operations via the IR port, a modem, or a network.
Page 74
Common Tasks
Performing a HotSync operation for the first time
The first time you synchronize your data, you need to enter user information on both the
communicator and Palm Desktop software. After you enter this information and synchronize, the
HotSync Manager recognizes your communicator and doesn’t ask for this information again.
If you are a System Administrator preparing several communicators for a group of users, you may
want to create a user profile. See the section that begins on page 198 before performing the
following steps.
Important:
You must use the HotSync cable for your first HotSync operation.
The following steps assume that you have already installed the Palm Desktop software. If you
have not installed this software, see page 25 for instructions.
To perform a local HotSync operation:
1. Connect your communicator to the Hotsync cable. See the section that begins on page 24
for details.
2. If the HotSync Manager is not enabled, activate it: Open Palm Desktop software, from the
HotSync Menu, choose Setup. Click the HotSync Controls tab and select the Enabled option.
3. Press the HotSync button on the cable.

Scheduling repeating or continuous events
The Repeat function lets you schedule events that recur at regular intervals or extend over a
period of consecutive days. A birthday is a good example of an event that repeats annually.
Another example is a weekly guitar lesson that falls on the same day of the week and the same
time of day.
Typically, a continuous event is an untimed event such as a business trip or a vacation that
continues for several days but doesn’t occur at a particular time of day.
To schedule a repeating or continuous event:
1. Tap the event.
2. Tap Details.
3. Tap the Repeat box to open the Change Repeat dialog box.
Repeat
box
4. Tap Day, Week, Month, or Year to set how often event repeats.
For a continuous event, tap Day.
5. Enter a number that corresponds to how often you want the event to repeat on the Every line.
For example, if you select Month and enter the number 2, the event repeats every other
month.
6. To specify an end date for the repeating or continuous event, tap the End on pick list and tap

Changing and deleting repeating or continuous events
If you change or delete a repeating or continuous event you can apply the action to only the
current event, to all instances of the event, or to the current event and instances that follow.
To change or delete repeating events:
1. Select the record you want to change or delete.
2. Tap Details.
3. Enter the change.
4.
Hold Option
and press Return
to accept the change, or tap Delete.
5. Tap one of the following:
Current. Changes or deletes only the current instance of the repeating event.
All.
ll. Changes or deletes all past, current, and future occurrences of this event.
Following. Changes or deletes the current event and all future occurrences of this event.
Considerations for repeating or continuous events
Keep the following points in mind:
■
If you change the start date of a repeating event, your communicator calculates the number
of days you moved the event. Your communicator then automatically changes the end date
to maintain the duration of the repeating event.
■
If you change the repeat interval (e.g., daily to weekly) of a repeating event, past occurrences
(prior to the day on which you change the setting) are not changed, and your communicator
creates a new repeating event.
■
If you change the date of an occurrence of a repeating event (e.g., from January 14th to
January 15th) and apply the change to All occurrences, the new date becomes the start date
of the repeating event. Your communicator adjusts the end date to maintain the duration of
the event. If you apply the change to Current or Future occurrences, past occurrences (prior
to the day on which you change the setting) are not changed.
■
If you change other repeat settings (e.g., time, alarm, private) of a repeating event and apply
the change to Future occurrences, your communicator creates a new event. The start date of
this new event is the day on which the setting is changed. Past occurrences (prior to the day
of the change) are not changed.
■
If you apply a change to a single occurrence of a repeating event (e.g., time), that occurrence
no longer shows the Repeat icon .

Working with floating events
Date Book Plus can include events that are a combination of a To Do item and a Date Book event.
These events are called “floating events.” Floating events are not assigned to a specific date, but
can still be timed or untimed, can have alarms, and can repeat. If a floating event is not completed
by midnight, it automatically advances to the next day until you mark it complete.
You can distinguish a floating event from an integrated To Do item by the circle that appears next
to the floating event (in place of the To Do item priority number and check box). Floating events
appear in alphabetical order at the top of the Day View screen between any integrated To Do
items and untimed events.
To create a floating event:
1. From the Day View, press Menu
.
2. Under Record, select New Floating Event.
3.
Enter a description of the event.
4. Tap a blank area on the screen to deselect the floating event.
To mark a floating event complete:
■
Tap the circle to the right or left of the event.
Tips for using floating events:
■
To prioritize floating events, enter a number followed by a space or dash as the first few
characters of the description.
■
To convert an existing event to a floating event, select the event, tap Details, tap Float as the
Type, and then hold Option
■
and press Return
to finish.
When you complete a repeating floating event, it marks only the current occurrence of the
event as complete.
Chapter 6
Page 111
■
Avoid scheduling a floating event that repeats daily. These events can accumulate quickly
unless you complete them each day.
■
When viewing a floating event in a desktop application, the Note field will contain a series of
characters: ##f@@@@@@ for an incomplete event and ##c@@@@@@ for a complete
event. Do not remove or

■
If a To Do item does not appear in Date Book Plus, confirm that the category assigned to the
item is selected. See the section that begins on page 118 for details.

Application Specific Tasks
SMS Messaging
In addition to dialing and receiving voice calls, you can use your Treo to send and receive short
text messages. These text messages, also called SMS (Short Message Service) messages, are
similar to e-mail messages that you send and receive from your computer, but are limited to 160
characters in length. The person receiving your message must also have a GSM mobile phone
and a wireless service provider that supports text messages. Some wireless service providers also
allow you to use your Treo to send text messages to an e-mail address and to receive text
messages from a computer. Talk to your wireless service provider for details about their SMS and
SMS Email features.
Enabling SMS and SMS Email
To send and reply to SMS messages, you must subscribe to your wireless service provider’s SMS
service. If you subscribe to this service, your wireless service provider supplies an SMS Message
Center number which appears in the SMS Preferences dialog.
Note:
Your wireless service provider may use a different name for their text messaging service.
Contact your wireless service provider to see if their service is compatible with SMS.
To use SMS Email, you must subscribe to your wireless service provider’s SMS Email service and
enter their SMS Email Center number in the SMS Preferences dialog. The SMS Email Center
forwards the SMS messages to the recipient’s e-mail address. Contact your wireless service
provider to obtain their SMS Email Center number.
To enable SMS and SMS Email:
1. Make sure wireless mode is on for at least 30 seconds. See page 18 for details.
2. Press SMS Messaging

Creating SMS messages
SMS Messaging enables you to create short text messages and to send them to a mobile phone
number or an e-mail address. If a message exceeds 160 characters, SMS Messaging
automatically divides the text into multiple messages when it sends the message. As you create
a message, the status bar at the top of the screen indicates how many messages will be sent and
the number of characters in each message.
To save time while creating messages, you can insert predefined text from a boilerplate. Some
boilerplates ask you to enter information such as a meeting time or place. Using a boilerplate is
similar to filling in the blanks on a form letter instead of writing a letter from scratch. You can easily
combine the boilerplate text with your own text to personalize your message.
You can create a message at any time, but if you send a message when you are outside a
coverage area, your Treo places the message in the Pending category and sends it automatically
when you return to a coverage area. While a message is in the Pending category, you can edit or
delete it before it is sent.
To create an SMS text message:
1. From any SMS Messaging list view, press Menu
.
2. Under Message, select New (/N).

Finance buttons
Finance buttons enable you to find an unknown variable value based on a group of known variable
values. For example, to calculate the monthly payment for a 30-year home loan of $100,000 with
an annual interest rate of 8%, you would enter the following variables:
■
Payments/year = 12
■
N = 360 (30 years x 12 months)
■
APR = 8
■
PV = 100,000
■
FV = 0
Using these variables, the answer would be -733.76 per month.
To solve this example:
1. Enter a value and then tap the corresponding variable button. Repeat this process until you’ve
entered the following four variables:
■
N = 360 (30 years x 12 months)
■
APR = 8

find that your communicator shuts itself off before you finish viewing information on the screen,
increase the auto-off setting.
To set the Auto-off delay:
1. Tap the Auto-off pick list.
2. Tap the setting you want to use for the automatic shutoff feature: 30 seconds, 1 minute, 2
minutes, or 3 minutes.
Note:
The Auto-off setting turns off only the handheld mode on your communicator. It does not
turn off your communicator’s wireless mode. So, you can still receive calls, e-mail and
SMS messages after the automatic shutoff period.

System, alarm, and game sounds
Your communicator uses a variety of sounds. The System, Alarm, and Game Sound settings
enable you to turn the sounds on or off, and to adjust the volume level.
Note:
If the ringer switch is set to no sound, the ringer setting overrides the sound settings and
all sounds are turned off. The system, alarm, and game sounds are used when the ringer
switch is set to the ring position.
To set the system, alarm, and game sounds:

Network Preferences and TCP/IP software
Network Preferences let you set a password, telephone number, DNS number, IP address, as well
as create a login script for remote connections. TCP/IP provides the ability to connect to your ISP
or dial-in server with applications that allow you to view the transmitted data. Visit the web site
www.handspring.com for information on third-party applications that take advantage of TCP/IP.
When you use the Handspring CD-ROM to configure your communicator, the configuration
software attempts to set up your communicator with settings received from your wireless service
provider. If the Configure Your Treo software configured your communicator with your wireless
service provider’s settings, the Phone field on the Network Preferences screen is set to
“Wireless.” In this case, we recommend that you do not change the settings from your wireless
service provider. However, if the configuration software on the CD-ROM can’t complete the
configuration, you need to enter Network Preferences and TCP/IP settings to use your
communicator as a wireless data device. You can use a preset service template for your ISP or
dial-in server, and edit, save, and reuse settings. Or you can create your own service template.
To use the TCP/IP software included in the operating system, you must first configure the
Connection Preferences and then the Network Preferences settings. After you configure both of
these Preferences, you can establish a PPP (Point-to-Point Protocol), SLIP (Serial Line Internet
Protocol), or CSLIP (Compressed Serial Line Internet Protocol) connection with your ISP or dialin server. You can do this either by using menu commands from the Network Preferences screen
or by using a third-party application.
Selecting a service
Use the Service setting to select the service template for your ISP or a dial-in server. Service
templates are a set of ISP and dial-in server configuration settings that you can create, save, and
reuse.

Entering a password
The Password box identifies the password you use to log into your server or ISP. Your entry in
this field determines whether your communicator prompts you to enter a password each time you
log into your network:
■
If you do not enter a password, your communicator displays the word “Prompt” in this field
and asks you to enter a password during the login procedure.
■
If you enter a password, your communicator displays the word “Assigned” in this field and
does not prompt you to enter a password during the login procedure.
Note:
If you are concerned about security, select the Prompt option and do not enter a
password.

during synchronization. These options are called a “conduit.” By default, a HotSync operation
synchronizes all files between the communicator and your desktop software.
In general, you should leave the settings to synchronize all files. The only reason you might want
to change these settings is to overwrite data on either your communicator or your desktop
software, or to avoid synchronizing a particular type of file because you don’t use it.
In addition to the conduits for the applications on your communicator HotSync Manager includes
System and Install conduits. The System conduit backs up the system information stored on your
communicator, including keyboard ShortCuts. The Install conduit installs applications on your
communicator.
To customize HotSync application settings:
1. Open Palm Desktop software.

Changing the HotSync setting from the default affects only the next HotSync
operation. Thereafter, the HotSync Actions revert to their default settings. To use a
new setting on an ongoing basis, click Make Default. Thereafter, whatever you
selected as the default setting is used when you perform a HotSync operation.
7. Click OK.
8. Repeat steps 4 through 7 to change conduit settings for other applications.
9. Close the Conduit Settings dialog box.
IR HotSync operations
Your communicator is equipped with an infrared (IR) port that supports the IrCOMM
implementation of the standards for infrared communication established by the Infrared Data
Association (IrDA). This means that you can beam data to any other device that supports the
IrCOMM implementation of the IrDA standards. Most importantly, you can use the IR port to
perform HotSync operations. When you use the IR port on your communicator to perform
HotSync operations, you don’t need your HotSync cable. You simply enable infrared
communication on your computer and your communicator and then perform an IR HotSync
operation. So there’s no need to carry your cable when you’re on the road with an infrared-enabled
laptop.
Preparing your computer for infrared communication
To perform an IR HotSync operation, the computer you want to synchronize with must have an
enabled infrared port or be connected to an infrared device that supports the IrCOMM
implementation of the IrDA standards.
Desktop computers are likely to require an infrared device attached to a physical port. Laptops
are likely to have a built-in IR port. Your computer must also have an installed infrared driver.
Does your computer support infrared communication?
Check the documentation that came with your computer to see if it supports infrared
communication.

Maintaining Your Communicator
This chapter provides information on the following:
■
Proper care of your Treo™ 180 communicator
■
Maximizing battery life
■
Resetting your communicator
Caring for your communicator
Your communicator is designed to be rugged and reliable and to provide years of trouble-free
service. Please observe the following general tips when using your communicator:
■
Take care not to scratch the screen of your communicator. Keep the screen clean. When
working with your communicator, use the supplied stylus or plastic-tipped pens intended for
use with a touch-sensitive screen. Never use an actual pen or pencil or other sharp object on
the surface of the communicator screen.
■
Your communicator is not waterproof and should not be exposed to rain or moisture. Under
extreme conditions, water may enter the circuitry through the front panel buttons. In general,
treat your communicator as you would a pocket calculator or other small electronic
instrument.
■
The touch-sensitive screen of your communicator contains a glass element. Take care not to
drop your communicator or subject it to any strong impact. Do not carry your communicator
in your back pocket: if you sit on it, the glass may break.
■
Protect your communicator from temperature extremes. Do not leave your communicator on
the dashboard of a car on a hot day, and keep it away from heaters and other heat sources.
■
Do not store or use your communicator in any location that is extremely dusty, damp, or wet.
■
Use a soft, damp cloth to clean your communicator. If the surface of the communicator screen
becomes soiled, clean it with a soft cloth moistened with a diluted window-cleaning solution.
Battery considerations
Please note the following considerations when using the rechargeable battery in your
communicator:
■
When wireless mode is on, your communicator battery should provide 60 hours of stand-by
time, or 2.5 hours of talk time between charges. When you use your communicator in
handheld mode and wireless mode is off, your communicator battery provides approximately
three weeks of use between charges.
■
You can conserve battery life by minimizing use of the backlight feature and by choosing a
lower Auto-off setting which automatically turns the communicator off after a period of
inactivity. See page 173 and page 18 for more information.
Appendix A
Page 201
■
If the battery becomes low in the course of normal use, an alert appears on the communicator
screen describing the low battery condition. If this alert appears, connect your communicator
to the HotSync cable or travel charger to charge the battery.
■
If the battery drains to the point where your communicator does not turn on, it stores your
data safely for about three days. In this case, there is enough residual energy in the battery
to store the data, but not enough to turn on your communicator. If your communicator does
not turn on when you press the power button, you should charge the battery immediately.
■
If you leave a drained battery in your communicator for an extended period of time, you can
lose all of the stored data. If this happens, charge the battery and use the reset button to reset
your communicator as described in the next section. After you reset your communicator,
perform a HotSync operation to restore the data from your computer.
Resetting your communicator
Under normal circumstances, you will not have to use the reset button. On rare occasions,
however, your communicator may no longer respond to buttons or the screen. In this case, you
need to perform a reset to get your communicator running again.
Performing a soft reset
A soft reset tells your communicator to stop what it’s doing and start over again. All records and
entries stored in your communicator are retained with a soft reset. After a soft reset, the Welcome
screen appears, followed by the General Preferences screen (to set time and date).
To perform a soft reset:
1. Unscrew the tip of the stylus to access the reset tool.
Reset tool
2. Use the reset tool to gently press the reset button inside the hole on the back panel of your
communicator.
Tip:
You can also use the tip of an unfolded paper clip (or similar object without a sharp tip).
Page 202
Maintaining Your Communicator
Performing a warm (or safe) reset
A warm (or safe) reset bypasses system extensions on your communicator, such as HackMaster
hacks or system patches. Performing a warm reset enables you to uninstall a third-party
application that may be causing a problem.
To perform a warm (or safe) reset:
1. Press and hold the top scroll button on the front panel of your communicator.
2. While holding down the top scroll button, use the reset tool (or similar object without a sharp
tip) to gently press the reset button.
3. When the system screen appears, release the top scroll button.
Performing a hard reset
With a hard reset, all records and entries stored in your communicator are erased. Never perform
a hard reset unless a soft or warm reset does not solve your problem.
Note:
You can restore any data previously synchronized with your computer during the next
HotSync operation.
To perform a hard reset:
1. Press and hold the power button on the top of the communicator.
2. While holding down the power button, use the reset tool (or similar object without a sharp tip)
to gently press and release the reset button.
3. When the system screen appears, release the power button.
4. When a message appears on the communicator screen warning that you are about to erase
all the data stored on your communicator, do one of the following:
■
Press the top scroll button on the front panel of your communicator to complete the hard
reset and display the Digitizer screen.
■
Press any other button to perform a soft reset.
Note:
With a hard reset, the current date and time are retained. Formats Preferences and
other settings are restored to their factory default settings.
5. If the language selection screen appears, select the same language you selected for your
desktop software. Choosing a different language may result in loss of data.
Appendix A
Page 203
To restore your data after a hard reset:
1. Open Palm Desktop software.
2. From the HotSync menu, choose Conduit Settings.
3. From the User pop-up menu, select your user name.
4. Select an application in the Conduit list.
5. Click Conduit Settings.
6. Select Macintosh overwrites handheld.
Note:
Changing the HotSync setting from the default affects only the next HotSync
operation. Thereafter, the HotSync Actions revert to their default settings. To use a
new setting on an ongoing basis, click Make Default. Thereafter, whatever you
selected as the default setting is used when you perform a HotSync operation.
7. Click OK.
8. Repeat steps 4 through 7 to change conduit settings for other applications.
9. Close the Conduit Settings dialog box.
10. Perform a HotSync operation.

HotSync problems
Problem
Solution
Why can’t I synchronize
my communicator with
my computer?
Try each of these in turn. After each step, try to synchronize to see
if the problem persists:
■
Make sure you installed the software that came with your
communicator. You must install this software even if you
upgraded from another Palm OS handheld.
■
Make sure there are no active calls on your Treo before you
begin a HotSync operation. You cannot synchronize while you
have an active call, and you cannot make or receive calls during
a HotSync operation.
■
Make sure you selected your user name in Palm Desktop
software before beginning the HotSync operation.
■
Perform a soft reset. See page 202 for details.
■
Open the Palm folder and double-click the HotSync Manager
. On the HotSync Controls tab, make sure the
icon
Enabled option is selected. Click the Serial Port Settings tab. In

■
Make sure you are not running another program, such as
America Online, CompuServe, or WinFax, that uses the port you
selected in the Setup dialog box.
■
Reinstall the Palm Desktop software.
Page 212
Troubleshooting Tips
I tried to do a wireless
HotSync operation, but
it did not complete
successfully.
Check the following on your computer:
■
Make sure your computer is turned on and that it does not shut
down automatically as part of an energy-saving feature.
■
Make sure the modem connected to your computer is turned on
and is connected to the outgoing phone line.
■
Make sure the HotSync Manager is enabled. Open Palm
Desktop software, from the HotSync menu, choose Setup. Make
sure that the Enabled option is selected.
■
Check the HotSync Manager Modem Setup settings. Open Palm
Desktop software, from the HotSync menu, choose Setup. Click
the Serial Port Settings tab and make sure the Modem Setup
option is selected and that the Modem and Port settings match
your computer modem.
■
Make sure the modem you are using with your communicator
has an on-off switch. Your communicator cannot “wake up” a
modem that has an auto-off feature.
■
Make sure the modem is connected properly to a port on your
computer and is connected to the incoming phone line.
■
You may need to select a different Modem Type or enter a
custom Setup String. Most modems have a Setup String that
causes them to send initial connection sounds to a speaker.
You can use these sounds to check the modem connection.
■
Make sure you are not running another program, such as
WinFax, CompuServe, or America Online, that uses the port you
selected in the Setup dialog box.
■
Make sure your modem resets before you try again. (Turn off
your modem, wait a minute, then turn it back on.)
Check the following on your communicator:
Appendix B
■
Confirm that you are inside a coverage area, and that the signal
is strong.
■
Make sure the dialing instruction dials the correct phone number.
■
If you need to dial an outside line prefix, make sure you selected
the Dial Prefix option on your communicator and entered the
correct code.
■
If the you have Call Waiting, make sure you selected the Disable
call waiting option under Modem Sync Phone Setup on your
communicator and entered the correct code.
■
Make sure the connection is clear. Using a noisy connection can
interrupt communications.
Page 213
Beaming problems
Problem
Solution
I cannot beam data to
another IR-equipped Palm
OS device.
■
Confirm that your communicator and the other device are
between ten centimeters (approximately 4") and one
meter (approximately 39") apart, and that the path
between the two devices is clear of obstacles. Beaming
distance to other Palm OS devices may be different.
■
Check the General Preferences screen and make sure
the Beam Receive setting is on.
■
Move your communicator closer to the receiving device.
■
Move your communicator farther away from the receiving
device.
■
Angle the sides of the two devices towards each other.
■
Perform a soft reset. See page 202 for details.
■
Your communicator requires at least twice the amount of
memory available as the data you are receiving. For
example, if you are receiving a 30K application, you must
have at least 60K free.
■
Perform a soft reset. See page 202 for details.
When someone beams data
to my communicator, I get a
message telling me it is out of
memory.

Troubleshooting Tips
Password problems
Problem
Solution
I forgot the password, and my
communicator is not locked.
You can use Security to delete the password. If you do this,
your communicator deletes all entries marked as private. You
can, however, perform a HotSync operation before you delete
the password: the HotSync process backs up all entries,
whether or not they are marked private. In this case, the
following procedure restores your private entries and lets you
access them:
1. Use the Palm Desktop software and the cable to
synchronize your data.
2. Tap Forgotten Password in Security to remove the
password and delete all private records.
3. Perform a HotSync operation to synchronize your data
and restore the private records by transferring them from
your computer to your communicator.
I forgot the password and my
communicator is locked.
If you assign a password and lock your communicator, you
must perform a hard reset to continue using your
communicator. See page 203 for details.

Appendix C
Non-ASCII Characters
for Login Scripts
The following information enables you to create custom login scripts that require non-ASCII
characters. It is provided for advanced users who understand the use and requirements of such
characters in a custom login script.
Use of ^char
You may use the caret ( ^ ) to transmit ASCII command characters. If you send ^ char, and the
ASCII value of char is between @ and _, then the character is automatically translated to a singlebyte value between 0 and 31.
For example, ^M is converted to a carriage return. If char is a value between a and z, then the
character sequence is translated to a single-byte value between 1 and 26. If char is any other
value, then the character sequence is not subject to any special processing.
For example, the string “Joe^M” transmits Joe, followed by a carriage return.
Carriage return and line feed
You may include carriage return and line feed commands as part of the login script, when entered
in the following format:
<cr>
Sends or receives a carriage return
<lf>
Sends or receives a line feed
For example, the string “waitfor Joe<cr><lf>” waits to receive Joe followed by a carriage return

Safety and General Information
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON SAFE AND EFFICIENT OPERATION. Read this information before using your integrated multi-service portable radio.
For the Safe and Effi
fficient Operation of
of Your Radio, Observe Thes
hese Guidelines
nes
Your radio product contains a transmitter and a receiver. When it is ON, it receives and transmits radio frequency
(RF) energy. The radio operates in the frequency range of 800 MHz to 1990 MHz and employs digital modulation
techniques. When you use your radio, the system handling your call controls the power level at which your radio
transmits. The output power level typically may vary over a range from .001 Watts to 2 Watts.
E xposure to Radio Frequency E nergy
Your Treo is designed to comply with national and international standards, including United States Federal Communications Commission, OET Bulletin 65 supplement C; American National Standards Institute (ANSI) IEEE. C95.
1-1992; Cenelec EN 50360; and Industrie Canada RF exposure guidelines.
In order to comply with FCC RF exposure safety guidelines users MUST use a Handspring brand body-worn accessory during body-worn operation. Use of accessories not provided by Handspring or that have not been tested for
RF exposure compliance with this product may not comply with the FCC RF exposure safety guidelines and should
not be used.
To assure optimal radio performance, always adhere to the following procedures:
■
When placing or receiving a phone call hold the radio as you would a telephone.
■
Speak directly into the microphone and position the antenna up over your shoulder.
■
DO NOT hold the antenna when the radio is “IN USE.” Holding the antenna affects call quality and may cause
the radio to operate at a higher power level than needed.
Interferenc
ence to Medical and Personal Electronic Devices
Most, but not all, electronic equipment is shielded from RF signals and certain electronic equipment may not be
shielded against the RF signals from your Treo communicator.
Pacemake
akers
The Health Industry Manufacturers Association recommends that a minimum separation of six inches (6") 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 the 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.
■
NOT carry the phone in a breast pocket.
■
Use the ear opposite the pacemaker to minimize the potential for interference.
■
Turn the phone OFF immediately if you have any reason to suspect that interference is taking place.
Page 222
Other Product Information
Audio Safety
Some hearing aids may be affected by some digital wireless phones. You may want to consult your doctor in the
event of you experience interference with your hearing aid while using Treo. When using the speakerphone feature,
it is recommended that you place Treo at a safe distance from your ear.
Other Medical Devices
If you use any other personal medical device, consult the manufacturer of your device to determine if it is adequately
shielded from external RF energy. Your physician may be able to assist you in obtaining this information.
Turn your 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.
Interfe
rference to Other
her Electronic Devices
RF energy may affect improperly installed or inadequately shielded electronic operating and entertainment systems
in motor vehicles. Check with the manufacturer or representative to determine if these systems are adequately
shielded from external RF energy. Also check with the manufacturer of any equipment that has been added to the
vehicle.
Safety and Gener
neral Use While
ile Driving
Check the laws and regulations on the use of telephones in the area where you drive. Always obey them.
When using the phone while driving, please:
■
Give full attention to driving and to the road
■
Use hands-free operation, if available
■
Pull off the road and park before making or answering a call if driving conditions so require.
A i r c r a f t S a f e ty
Turn your radio OFF before boarding any aircraft to prevent possible interference to aircraft systems. Regulations
of the United States Federal Aviation Administration prohibit use when the aircraft is in the air and require you have
permission from a crew member to use your radio while the aircraft is one the ground.
Non-ioni
onizing Radiation
As with other mobile radio transmitting equipment, users are advised that for satisfactory operation of the equipment
and for the safety of the personnel, it is recommended that no part of the human body be allowed to come to close
to the antenna during operation of the equipment.
Gener
neral Safety Information
As with other mobile radio transmitting equipment, users are advised to heed all posted warnings on the use and
operation of Treo and to turn off your device in any area with a potentially explosive atmosphere, such as fueling
stations, even where no warnings or notices are posted.
Emergency Calls
IMPORTANT! The Treo communications features operate using radio signals, like any wireless phone, wireless and
landline networks, and user-programmed functions. Therefore you should never rely solely upon Treo for essential
communications (for example, medical emergencies).
Remember, the phone feature must be on in order to make or receive calls and you must be in a service area with
adequate signal strength. Emergency calls may not be possible on all wireless phone networks or when certain network services and/or phone features are in use. Check with local service providers.
