SPECIFIC ABSORPTION RATE DATA
THIS MODEL WIRELESS HANDHELD MEETS GOVERNMENT
REQUIREMENTS FOR EXPOSURE TO RADIO WAVES.
Your wireless handheld 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 (FCC) of the U.S.
Government and Industry Canada of the Canadian Government (IC). These limits
are part of comprehensive guidelines and establish permitted levels of RF energy
for the general population. The guidelines are based on standards that were
developed by independent scientific organizations through periodic and
thorough evaluation of scientific studies. 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 handhelds employs a unit of
measurement known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit set
by the FCC/IC is 1.6W/kg.* Tests for SAR are conducted using standard operating
positions specified by the FCC/IC with the handheld transmitting at its highest
certified power level in all tested frequency bands. Although the SAR is
determined at the highest certified power level, the actual SAR level of the
handheld while operating can be well below the maximum value. This is because
Handheld User Guide
15
Important safety information
the handheld is designed to operate at multiple power levels so as to use only the
power required to reach the network. In general, the closer you are to a wireless
base station antenna, the lower the power output.
Before a wireless handheld model is available for sale to the public, it must be
tested and certified to the FCC/IC that it does not exceed the limit established by
the government-adopted requirement for safe exposure. The tests are performed
in positions and locations (e.g., at the ear and worn on the body) as required by
the FCC/IC for each model. The highest SAR value for this model handheld when
tested for use at the ear is 1.28W/kg and when worn on the body, as described in
this user guide, is 0.32 W/kg. (Body-worn measurements differ among wireless
handheld and phone models, depending upon available accessories and FCC/IC
requirements). While there may be differences between the SAR levels of various
wireless devices and at various positions, they all meet the government
requirement for safe exposure.
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this model handheld with
all reported SAR levels evaluated as in compliance with the FCC RF emission
guidelines. SAR information on this model handheld 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 L6AR6020GW.
Additional information on Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) can be found on the
Cellular Telecommunications & Internet Association (CTIA) web-site at http://

Automatic capitalization
When you compose a message, you do not have to press a Shift key to capitalize
letters; your handheld has two methods of capitalizing letters.
•
When you type, the first letter that you type is capitalized automatically and
every letter that follows a period is also capitalized. Your handheld recognizes
the beginning of a new sentence and capitalizes the letter for you.
•
If you want to capitalize any other letter, press and hold that letter until it is
capitalized. For this feature to work, in the Options application, on the
Screen/Keyboard screen, you must set the Key Rate option to either Slow or
Fast.
Automatic punctuation
To insert a period automatically at the end of a sentence or word, press the Space
key twice. The next letter that you type is capitalized.
To insert a lowercase letter after a period, press the Backspace key and type the
letter again. The letter appears in lowercase.
Email and number fields
You can type an email address in an Email field without pressing the Alt key.
When you type an email address, instead of pressing the Alt key and L to insert
the at sign (@), press the Space key. When you press the Space key again, a period
is inserted.
You can type numbers in the Work, Home, Mobile, Fax, PIN, and Pager fields
without pressing the Alt key.
To type a number in any of these fields, press the associated character key. For
example, to display the number 4, press S. You can do this for all numbers, for
parentheses, and for the -, +, x, * and . characters.
Note: You can only type numbers and hexadecimal characters in the PIN field.

synchronization
If you enable wireless calendar synchronization, your desktop Calendar is

desktop Calendar are reflected on your handheld. After this feature is enabled,
you do not have to connect your handheld to your desktop for calendar
synchronization to occur, because synchronization occurs over the wireless
network.
Note: To enable wireless calendar synchronization, your handheld must be enabled
on a BlackBerry Enterprise Server version 2.1 or later. Contact your system
administrator for more information on whether you can enable wireless calendar
synchronization.
To enable wireless calendar synchronization
Before you enable wireless calendar synchronization, connect your handheld to
your desktop and synchronize your handheld and desktop Calendars using the
MS Outlook, Lotus Notes 4.6, or Lotus Notes 5.0 translator refer to the Intellisync
Online Help for more information on synchronizing. You should also back up your
handheld Calendar. Refer to the Backup and Restore Online Help for more
information.

wireless network. If you change the operation to Export, any change that you make on
your handheld Calendar is exported to your desktop Calendar over the wireless
network.

desktop Calendar are transferred to your handheld. Any subsequent calendar
updates are sent over the wireless network. As long as the check box is selected
beside the Calendar application in the Handheld Configuration window, wireless
calendar synchronization is enabled. If you clear the check box or select a new
translator, wireless calendar synchronization is automatically disabled.
If a change is made to an existing appointment or a new appointment is added in
your desktop Calendar, and you have wireless calendar synchronization enabled,
you do not receive notification of the change on your handheld. Check your
handheld Calendar regularly to see any updates.
Note: If you update your handheld with new applications, you might need to
reconfigure wireless calendar synchronization.

I sent a message and an X icon appears where the check mark usually appears. What
should I do?
When an X appears beside a message that you sent from your handheld, a problem prevented
the message from being sent properly. You can find out specifically what went wrong by opening
the message and scrolling to the top of it. The Message Status field specifies the problem.
Refer to "Message status field error messages" on page 278 for more information.
Why am I not notified when new messages arrive?
Verify that the volume setting for the Messages item of your current notification profile is set to
Low, Medium, High, or Escalating instead of Mute. If the volume is set to Mute, you do not
receive notification of new messages. If you are having difficulty hearing the notification,
increase the volume or the number of beeps. Refer to "Customizing notification profiles" on page
238 for more information on changing your notification profile settings.
Why are email messages arriving at my handheld in an “Unknown” folder?
You must synchronize your email messages using the Intellisync tool to transfer folders to your
handheld that you created on your desktop. Refer to the “Reconciling email” topic of the
Intellisync Online Help for more information. After you perform the email reconciliation, your
handheld recognizes the new folder and any email messages that are redirected from that
desktop folder on your desktop are transferred into the proper folder on your handheld.
If you have enabled wireless email reconciliation, your handheld recognizes when new folders
are created on your desktop. Refer to "Using wireless email reconciliation" on page 90 for more
information.

you can use wireless email reconciliation.
I deleted an email message on my desktop and then reconciled my email messages.
Why are email messages not being deleted on my handheld?
You must configure the Message List Options screen so that messages that you deleted from
your desktop are deleted from your handheld each time that you reconcile email messages using
the Intellisync tool. Refer to "To delete email messages on your handheld and your desktop" on
page 111 for more information.
Messages that you delete from the desktop are moved into the Deleted Items folder. The
messages are deleted from your handheld when the next email reconciliation occurs.
Microsoft
Exchange
If you are using Microsoft Outlook as your desktop email program, two scenarios
might prevent messages from being deleted from your handheld:
• In Microsoft Outlook, on the Tools menu, click the Options icon and click the
Other tab. Verify that the Empty Deleted Items folder upon exit option is not
selected. If you empty your Deleted Items folder when you close Outlook, the
status of the message on your handheld cannot be updated and the message is
not deleted.
• If you delete messages from your desktop using a Shift key and the Backspace
key, the message is removed from your desktop and does not appear in your
Deleted Items folder. Without reference to the message, the status of the
message on your handheld cannot be updated and the message is not deleted.
Messages are not being sent from my handheld. What should I do?
Verify that your handheld radio is turned on and verify that the network settings are correct. Your
messages might not be transmitting for several reasons:
• If a clock icon appears beside the unsent message, you are not in a wireless coverage area. For
your messages to be sent you need to be in a location with sufficient wireless coverage. Check
the wireless coverage indicator that is located in the top right corner of the Home screen. Refer
to "Network status icons" on page 38 for more information on the wireless coverage indicator.
• If an X icon appears beside the unsent message, an error occurred during its transmission.

messages that appear in the Message Status field.
I have integrated my desktop software with an enterprise email account, but my
email messages are not forwarded to my handheld. What should I do?
Email messages might not be forwarded to your handheld for several reasons:
Microsoft
Exchange
Is your computer turned on? If you are a Microsoft Exchange user and you use
the BlackBerry Desktop Redirector and your computer is turned off, messages are
not forwarded to your handheld. Your computer must be turned on any time that
you want to receive messages on your handheld.
Is the BlackBerry Desktop Redirector running? If you are a Microsoft Exchange
user and you are using the desktop redirector to forward your email messages
and it is not running, messages are not forwarded to your handheld. If your
company uses the BlackBerry Enterprise Server to forward your email messages,
you do not need to have the desktop redirector running. Look for the Desktop
Redirector icon in the right corner of your Windows taskbar. If it appears, the
desktop redirector is running. If it does not appear, on the Windows taskbar, click
Start and select Programs > BlackBerry > BlackBerry Desktop Redirector.
• Is your handheld inserted into the cradle and is it connected to your computer with the
desktop software running? If your handheld is inserted into the cradle with the desktop
software running, and you have selected the option to not forward messages when your
handheld connected to the computer, you do not receive messages on your handheld.
Remove your handheld from the cradle to determine whether messages are forwarding
properly.
Microsoft
Exchange
Have you created Microsoft Exchange Inbox Assistant rules? If you are a
Microsoft Exchange user and you have set up Inbox Assistant rules that move new
messages from the Inbox to another folder, new messages are not forwarded to
your handheld unless email is specifically redirected from that folder. If you have
not specified email redirection from specific folders, the Inbox Assistant moves
the message before the message can be forwarded. Either delete the Inbox
Assistant rule or change the folder redirection settings to forward messages to
your handheld.
• Have you set Redirector Settings filter rules? If you have enabled filters in the Redirector
Settings tool, you might have instructed the desktop software to send only certain messages
to your handheld. Check the filters to verify that the messages that you want to receive are
being forwarded.
• Have you set the order of the filters? If a new Redirector Settings filter applies to a subset of
the messages of an existing filter, the new filter should appear at the top of the list.
• Have you selected the “Forward messages to my handheld” check box? Check the settings
on the General tab and verify that the Forward messages to my handheld check box is
selected. Check the settings on the Advanced tab and verify that you have selected the proper
folders from which email should be redirected. If you are using the BlackBerry Enterprise Server
to forward your email messages, messages might not be forwarded to your handheld if they
are read on your desktop before being processed by the server. If you are in an area of
insufficient wireless coverage and you read a message on your desktop, before it is processed
Handheld User Guide

Troubleshooting
by the BlackBerry Enterprise Server, the server might not recognize the message as unread.
Therefore, it is not forwarded to your handheld.
• Have you selected from which folders you want to receive email messages? Check the
Advanced tab of the Redirector Settings tool and verify that you have selected the folders
from which you want to receive email messages. Refer to the Redirector Settings Online Help for
more information on selecting folders.
Why can I not forward messages from my handheld?
If an X icon appears beside the message that you sent, a transmission error occurred that
prevented it from being sent. You cannot forward messages that have not been transmitted
properly. Open the message and scroll to the top of it. The Message Status field indicates the
error. Refer to "Handheld error messages" on page 269 for more information. After the original
message is sent successfully, you can forward it to another email address.
Why did I have several email messages on my handheld before I turned on the radio?
These email messages are previously loaded onto your handheld and contain information to help
you learn about your handheld when you first receive it. As soon as you turn on your radio,
another message should arrive, indicating that the handheld is registered with the network.
Punctuation
How do I type a period (.) or other punctuation marks on the handheld?
• The quickest way to type a period (.) is to press the Space key twice at the end of a sentence.
The next letter is capitalized automatically.
• Press the Alt key and an associated character at the same time to insert common punctuation
marks. The punctuation mark is printed above the primary character on the key. Refer to "Using
the keyboard and trackwheel" on page 28 for more information on the Alt key and special key
combinations.
• Other punctuation marks are included in the symbols library which you can open by pressing
the Symbol key. Refer to "Inserting symbols" on page 51 for more information.
• You can also insert international and accented characters in your messages. When you are
composing a message or entering text, hold a letter and roll the trackwheel to scroll through
international characters, marks, and equation symbols. When the desired character appears,
release the letter key.
Security
What should I do if the Security Self Tests fail?
If you perform a Security Self Test and the tests fail, run the tests again. Refer to "To perform
Security Self Tests" on page 258 for more information.

turn off the handheld. On the Home screen, click the Turn Power Off icon. To turn on the
handheld again, press the Power button.
What should I do if I will not use my handheld for an extended period of time?
Before you store your handheld for an extended period of time, you should save the information
from your handheld to your desktop using the desktop software’s Backup and Restore tool.
If you expect that you will not use your handheld for many weeks or months, remove the battery
from the handheld. Your handheld shuts down and, after approximately 24 hours, enters a special
storage state. You should store your handheld in a cool, dry place. If you press any keys or click
the trackwheel while your handheld is in this state, it does not respond.
To reactivate your handheld, insert the battery into your handheld and recharge it. Your stored
addresses and messages are preserved while your handheld is turned off. When you turn on your
handheld, a dialog box appears on your screen that prompts you to confirm the current date and
time. Click Edit to open the Date/Time screen to set the date and time.
If you integrated your handheld with an enterprise email account and you put your handheld in
