Important safety/compliance
information for BlackBerry 6710™ users
EXPOSURE TO RADIO FREQUENCY SIGNALS
Your wireless handheld portable device is a low power radio transmitter and
receiver. When it is ON, it receives and also sends out radio frequency (RF)
signals. Your wireless handheld complies with Federal Communications
Commission (FCC) guidelines respecting safety levels of RF exposure for
handheld wireless devices, which in turn are consistent with the following safety
standards previously set by both U.S. and international standards bodies:
•
Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) C95.1 (1999)
•
National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements (NCRP) Report
86 (1986)
•
International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP)
(1996)

BlackBerry Wireless Handheld
Important safety information
To maintain compliance with FCC RF exposure guidelines, use only RIM
supplied or approved accessories. When carrying the wireless handheld while on,
use the specific RIM holster that has been tested for compliance. Use of non-RIM
approved accessories may violate FCC RF exposure guidelines.
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
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 1.28 W/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.
Handheld User Guide
15
Important safety information
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://
www.wow-com.com.
___________________________________
* In the United States and Canada, the SAR limit for mobile handhelds used by
the public is 1.6 watts/kg (W/kg) averaged over one gram of tissue for the body or
head (4.0 W/kg averaged over 10 grams of tissue for the extremities - hands,
wrists, ankles and feet). The standard incorporates a substantial margin of safety
to give additional protection for the public and to account for any variations in
measurements.
ANTENNA CARE
Use only the supplied integral antenna. Unauthorized antenna, modifications, or
attachments could damage the handheld and may violate FCC regulations.
AIRCRAFT

Formatting your messages
Your handheld has automatic formatting capabilities that can reduce your typing
time. It also has an AutoText feature that automatically replaces certain text that
you type with preprogrammed text.
Automatic capitalization
When you compose a message, you do not have to press SHIFT 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, you must set the Key Rate option on the
Screen/Keyboard screen of the Options application to either Slow or Fast.
Automatic punctuation
You can insert a period automatically at the end of a sentence or word by pressing
SPACE twice. The next letter that you type is capitalized.
To insert a lowercase letter after a period, press BACKSPACE 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 ALT. When you
type an email address, instead of pressing ALT + L to insert the at sign (@), press
SPACE. When you press SPACE again, a period is inserted.
You can type numbers in the Work, Home, Mobile, Fax, PIN, and Pager fields
without pressing ALT.
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.

You can send and receive SMS messages of up to 160 characters to
SMS-compatible numbers. An SMS-compatible number is a phone number
(Work, Home, Mobile, or Pager) that has SMS capabilities.
You can locate your handheld’s SMS-compatible phone number on the Subscriber
Identity Module (SIM) card screen. If a phone number does not appear on this
screen, contact your service provider or network operator.
Note: When you type an SMS-compatible number for your contact, include the country
code and the area code. If you have set your smart dialing options in the Phone
application, you do not need to type the country code and area code. Refer to "Setting
smart dialing options" on page 144 for more information.
Sending an SMS message
After you activate your handheld, and if you are in an area of sufficient wireless
coverage, you can send and receive SMS messages.

then click Send.
You return to the Messages screen. If you are in an area of wireless coverage that
is sufficient for sending SMS messages, a check mark appears beside the message
within a short period of time. This icon indicates that your message was

one or more bars appear with the wireless coverage indicator in the handheld
status section of the screen.
Note: In the Options application, on the SMS screen, if you set the Delivery Reports
field to On, a D appears with the check mark icon when the message is delivered to
your contact. Refer to "SMS" on page 230 for more information.

Using AutoText in SMS messages
Your handheld’s AutoText feature automatically replaces certain text that you
type with preprogrammed text. By configuring the default AutoText entries and
adding new ones to meet your specific needs, you can use AutoText to
automatically perform the following actions:
•
compose frequently used phrases or messages with a few keystrokes
•
correct commonly misspelled words
•
replace abbreviations and acronyms with complete words
•
insert phrases in a message by typing only one keyword
•
insert punctuation and symbols in your message without using ALT or the
symbols library
To add a new AutoText entry
You can customize the AutoText database by adding your own entries. For
example, if you frequently ask friends to join you for lunch at noon at a local
restaurant, you can create an AutoText entry that replaces a few keystrokes with
the message “Join me for lunch at Joe’s at noon?”

Troubleshooting
Battery
Why is my battery depleting quickly?
There are several reasons why your battery might deplete quickly. Following these suggestions
can help extend battery life:
• Limit your use of the backlighting feature.
• Enable the handheld’s Auto On/Off feature to conserve the handheld’s battery at night or on
weekends. Refer to "Setting the Auto On/Off feature" on page 221 for more information.
• If you are sending the same email message to more than one person, use multiple recipients in
one message instead of transmitting the same message more than once. Refer to "Sending
messages to several contacts at one time" on page 57 for more information on composing an
email message to multiple recipients.
• Turn off your handheld’s radio when you do not need to send or receive messages, place
phone calls, or browse web pages, or when you are in an area without wireless coverage for an
extended period of time.
If you have integrated your handheld with an enterprise email account, set filter rules in the
desktop software’s Redirector Settings tool to specify which email messages should be
forwarded to your handheld. Refer to the Redirector Settings Online Help for more information.
If you have integrated your handheld with a new or ISP email account, set filter rules in the
BlackBerry Web Client to specify which email messages should be forwarded to your handheld.
Refer to the BlackBerry Web Client Online Help for more information.
What should I do if my handheld does not turn on?
Recharge your handheld’s battery. Refer to the Getting Started Guide for more information on using
and charging the battery.
If your handheld does not turn on after you recharge the battery, reset the handheld. Refer to
"Maintenance" on page 235 for more information on resetting the handheld.
Calendar
I am using wireless calendar synchronization and I deleted a meeting request from
my handheld. Now the appointment is not on my handheld or in my desktop
Calendar. Why are meeting requests being deleted from my handheld and desktop
Calendars?
If you do not respond to a meeting request (either on your handheld or on your desktop) and you
delete the meeting request from your handheld's Messages screen, the appointment is deleted
and removed from both your handheld and desktop Calendars. To avoid inadvertently missing a
meeting, always respond to meeting requests either on your desktop or from your handheld’s
Messages application.
Why is the handheld not synchronizing over the wireless network?
The BlackBerry Enterprise Server, not the desktop software, controls wireless calendar
synchronization. To synchronize your handheld Calendar over the wireless network, verify that
234

you are enabled on a BlackBerry Enterprise Server version 2.1 or later. Contact your system
administrator to determine whether your company is using this server software version.
If you use the BlackBerry Desktop Redirector for Microsoft Exchange to forward your email
messages, you cannot configure your handheld Calendar for wireless calendar synchronization.
Home screen
How do I return to the Home screen?
The screen that displays the applications icons and the date and time is called the Home screen.
Press ESC to close application screens and return to the Home screen.
You can also select Close from an application menu or, on the Options screen, click [Return to
Home Screen].
LCD screen
What can I do if my LCD screen seems faint?
If you are operating your handheld in low light conditions, try using the backlighting feature.
While the handheld is on, press the power key to activate backlighting. Backlighting turns off
after ten seconds if you do not press a key or use the trackwheel. You can turn off the
backlighting manually by pressing the power key again.
The handheld backlighting turns on automatically when you receive an incoming phone call.
If your screen seems faint all the time, check the Screen/Keyboard option on the Options screen.
Refer to "Screen/Keyboard" on page 228 for more information on setting these fields.
Maintenance
I accidentally dropped my handheld in water and now it does not work. What should I
do?
While a few drops of moisture should not damage your handheld, you should avoid placing it in
direct contact with liquids. If your handheld is exposed to liquid and stops operating, let it dry out
completely, allowing time for internal components to dry. If it does not begin to work again when
it is dry, contact your service provider or network operator.
How can I reset my handheld?
On rare occasions, the handheld might report an internal handheld error message, and instruct
you to press R to reset. You can also reset the handheld by pressing ALT + SHIFT + BACKSPACE.
A reset hole is located on the back of the handheld. If your handheld no longer responds when
you press keys or use the trackwheel, insert one end of a paper clip into this hole to press the
reset button. Your handheld restarts and should return to normal operation.

What is a PIN?
PIN stands for personal identification number. Each handheld has a unique address that is similar
to a phone number. PINs are up to 8 digits long and cannot be modified or altered.
To find the PIN for your handheld, on the Home screen, click Options, and then click Status.
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 248 for more information.
Why am I not notified when new messages arrive?
Verify that the volume setting of the notification profile that you are using 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 213 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 using the Intellisync tool to transfer the folder 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 folder on your desktop are
transferred to your handheld into the proper folder.
Why are new email messages on my handheld being marked as read?
If you briefly remove your handheld from the holster to stop notification, a new message might
become marked as read. If you remove your handheld from the holster when you are notified of a
new message, the new message is displayed on the screen. When you return your handheld to
the holster, the message closes. Even if you did not actually read the message, your handheld
might mark the message as read.
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 deleted on your desktop
are deleted on 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 105 for
more information.
Messages that are deleted on the desktop are moved into the Deleted Items folder. the messages
are deleted on your handheld when the next email reconciliation occurs.

Microsoft
Exchange
If you are Microsoft Outlook user on the Microsoft Exchange server, there are two
scenarios that might prevent messages from being deleted on your handheld:
• In Microsoft Outlook, on the Tools menu, click Options and select the Other
tab. Verify that have not selected the Empty Deleted Items folder upon exit
option. If you empty your Deleted Items folder when you close Outlook, there
is no method to verify where that message belongs. Without reference to the
Deleted Items folder, the status of the message on your handheld cannot be
updated and the message is not deleted.
• If you delete messages on your desktop using SHIFT + DELETE, the message is
removed from your desktop and does not appear in your Deleted Items folder.
Without reference to the Deleted Items folder, 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 a few reasons:
• If a clock icon appears beside the unsent message, you are not in a wireless coverage area. You
need to be in a location with sufficient wireless coverage for your messages to be sent. Check
the wireless coverage indicator that is located in the top right corner of your handheld’s Home
screen. Refer to "Network status icons" on page 36 for more information on the wireless
coverage indicator.
• If an X icon appears beside the unsent message, an error occurred during its transmission.
Open the message and scroll to the top of it. The Message Status field indicates what
happened. Refer to "Handheld error messages" on page 240 for more information on the error
messages that appear in the Message Status field.
• If you have integrated your desktop software with an enterprise email account and a check
mark appears beside the sent message but the recipient has not yet received it, check
Microsoft Outlook or Lotus Notes and verify that a copy of the message appears in the Sent
Items folder.
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?
There are several reasons why email messages might not be forwarded to your handheld:
Handheld User Guide
237
Troubleshooting
Microsoft
Exchange
Is your computer turned on? If you are a Microsoft Exchange user and are using
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, click Start on the Windows
taskbar and select Programs > BlackBerry > BlackBerry Desktop Redirector.
• Is your handheld in the cradle and is it connected to your computer with the desktop
software running? If your handheld is in the cradle with the desktop software running, and
you have selected the option to not forward messages when your handheld is in the cradle,
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 you have specific email redirection 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, there are certain cases in which 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 low wireless coverage and you read a message on your desktop,
before it is processed 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 240 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
Where can I find the period (.) and other punctuation marks on the keyboard?
• The quickest way to type a period (.) is to press SPACE twice at the end of a sentence. The next
letter is capitalized automatically.
• Press ALT 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 26 for more information on ALT and special key
combinations.
• Other punctuation marks are included in the symbols library which you can open by pressing
ALT + SPACE. Refer to "Inserting symbols" on page 46 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.
Storage
What should I do if I will not use my handheld for a short period of time?
If you expect that you will not use your handheld for a short period of time (two weeks or less)
turn off the handheld. On the Home screen, click the Turn Power Off icon. To turn on the
handheld again, press the power key.
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
