Instructions
Please read these safety and operation instructions before using the BlackBerry Connect™ program on a Pocket
PC. Retain these instructions for future use.
Driving
Check the laws and regulations on the use of wireless devices in the areas where you drive. Always obey them.
Also, if using the Pocket PC in your car, please use the following minimum guidelines:
• Give your full attention to driving; driving safely is your first responsibility.
• Use hands-free operation, if it is available.
• Pull off the road and park before using the Pocket PC.
Avoid using the BlackBerry Connect program on the Pocket PC in any environment requiring your full attention,
such as when driving a vehicle. If you need to use the BlackBerry Connect program while driving, have a passenger
in the vehicle use the program for you, or find a safe location to stop your vehicle before using the program.
Liquids and other foreign objects
Do not use the BlackBerry Connect program on your Pocket PC when you are near water (for example, near a
bathtub or a sink, in a wet basement, or near a swimming pool).
High heat
Do not use the BlackBerry Connect program on your Pocket PC when you are near any heat sources, such as
radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other apparatus (including amplifiers) that produce heat.
BlackBerry Connect for Pocket PC User Guide
Aircraft safety
On an airplane, do not use your Pocket PC with the wireless radio or Bluetooth® radio turned on. Federal Aviation
Administration (FAA) and Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulations prohibit using the wireless
radio of your Pocket PC while in the air. Switch your Pocket PC wireless radio and Bluetooth radio off before
boarding the aircraft. The effect of the use of your Pocket PC wireless radio or Bluetooth radio in an aircraft is
unknown. Such use might affect aircraft instrumentation, communication, and performance; might disrupt the
network; might otherwise be dangerous to the operation of the aircraft; and might be illegal.
Electronic devices
Most modern electronic equipment is shielded from radio frequency (RF) signals. However, electronic equipment
might not be shielded against the RF signals from your wireless Pocket PC.
Pacemakers
Consult a physician or the manufacturer of your pacemaker if you have any questions regarding the effect of RF
signals on your pacemaker. If you have a pacemaker, verify that you are using the Pocket PC in accordance with
the safety requirements associated with your particular pacemaker, which might include the following:
• Always keep the Pocket PC more than 20 cm (7 inches) from the pacemaker when the Pocket PC wireless
radio is turned on.
• Do not carry the Pocket PC in a breast pocket.
• If you have any reason to suspect that interference is taking place, turn the Pocket PC wireless radio and the
Bluetooth radio off immediately.
Hearing aids
Some digital wireless devices might interfere with some hearing aids. In the event of such interferences, consult
your service provider or contact the manufacturer of your hearing aid to discuss alternatives.
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 might be able to assist you in obtaining this
information.
Turn your Pocket PC wireless radio and Bluetooth radio off in health care facilities when any regulations posted in
these areas instruct you to do so. Hospitals or health care facilities might be using equipment that could be
sensitive to external RF energy.
Posted facilities
Turn your Pocket PC wireless radio and Bluetooth radio off in any facility where posted notices so require.
