IMPORTANT SAFETY
INFORMATION
Please read these safety instructions and the operation instructions
provided in this manual before operating the RIM 857 Wireless
Handheld or its charging cradle. Retain these instructions for future
use.
Remember to follow any special regulations governing the use of
the RIM 857 Wireless Handheld and always switch it off in areas
where radio devices are forbidden, or when it may cause
interference or danger. Any safety laws and regulations pertaining
to the use of cell phones and two-way radios will likely apply to
your use of the handheld. We encourage you to follow such laws
and regulations at all times. In particular, please observe all
restrictions on the use of radio equipment in fuel depots (fuel
storage and distribution areas), chemical plants, where blasting
operations are in progress or in any other area in which restrictions
on radio transmissions are imposed. In addition, the RIM 857
Wireless Handheld should not be used in locations that may be
hazardous including, without limitation, locations in which
hazardous or combustible gases may be present.
The RIM 857 Wireless Handheld is not an FAA-approved electronic
device for use on aircraft. Switch off the handheld when in an
aircraft. The effect of the use of the handheld in an aircraft is
unknown. Such use may affect aircraft instrumentation,
communication and performance, may disrupt the network, and
may be illegal.
Operation of any radio transmitting equipment, including the
handheld, may interfere with the functionality of inadequately
protected medical devices, including pacemakers. Consult a
physician or the manufacturer of the medical device if you have any
questions. Additionally, while most modern equipment is
adequately shielded from radio signals such that your handheld
will not interfere with the operation of such equipment, certain
electronic equipment, including automotive systems, may not be
shielded against the radio signals from your handheld. You should
check with the manufacturer of your motor vehicle or the
manufacturer’s representative to determine whether the use of the
handheld will present any safety issues.
Avoid using the handheld in any environment requiring your full
attention, such as when driving a vehicle. If you need to use your
handheld while driving, have a passenger in the vehicle use the
handheld for you, or find a safe location to halt your vehicle prior to
using the handheld. Do not use the charging cradle as a means of
storing your handheld while in a vehicle.
WARNING
Do not use any cradle, charging unit, or any other
accessory or attachment that is not manufactured or
supplied by RIM or an authorized RIM accessories supplier.
Use of any accessory or attachment that is not supplied or
approved for use by RIM in conjunction with the handheld is
not permitted as it may cause hazards.
Do not place the RIM 857 Wireless Handheld or its charging cradle
on any unstable surface, such as a cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or
table. It may fall, causing serious injury to a child or adult, and
serious damage to the handheld.
Discard the handheld properly. As the unit contains a lithium
battery, neither the handheld nor the lithium battery should be
disposed of in fire. Dispose of the handheld containing the lithium
battery in accordance with the laws and regulations in your area
governing disposal of such cell types. Contact RIM if you have any
questions concerning disposal of the handheld or the lithium cell.
The handheld should be operated only from the type of power
source indicated on the marking label. Refer to the operating
instructions starting on page 21 for more information on the battery
and power supply. Do not overload wall outlets, extension cords, or
integral convenience receptacles as this may result in a risk of fire or
electric shock.
Never push objects of any kind into the RIM 857 Wireless Handheld
through openings as they may short-out parts and this may result in
a fire or electric shock. Never spill liquid of any kind on the
handheld or its charging cradle. Unplug the charging cradle from
the wall before cleaning. Do not use liquid or aerosol cleaners.
IMPORTANT UL SAFETY
INSTRUCTIONS
Read these instructions. Keep these instructions. Heed all warnings.
Follow all instructions.
Do not use this apparatus near water. Clean only with a dry cloth.
Do not install near any heat sources, such as radiators, heat
registers, stoves, or other apparatus (including amplifiers) that
produce heat.
Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized or grounding-type
plug. A polarized plug has two blades with one wider than the
other. A grounding-type plug has two blades and a third grounding
prong. The wide blade or the third prong are provided for your
safety. If the provided plug does not fit into your outlet, consult an
electrician for replacement of the obsolete outlet.
Protect the power cord from being walked on or pinched
particularly at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point where
they exit from the apparatus.
Only use attachments/accessories specified by the manufacturer.
Unplug this apparatus during lightning storms or when used for
long periods of time.
Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel. Servicing is
required when the apparatus has been damaged in any way, such as
when the power-supply cord or plug has been damaged, liquid has
been spilled or objects have fallen into the apparatus, it has been
exposed to rain or moisture, does not operate normally, or has been
dropped.
WARNING
To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not expose
this apparatus to rain or moisture.
Adjust only those controls that are covered in this manual. An
improper adjustment of other controls may result in damage and
will often require extensive work by a qualified technician to
restore the handheld or charging cradle to its normal operation.
Failure to observe all safety instructions contained in this
manual will void the Limited Warranty, and may lead to
suspension or denial of services to the offender, or legal action,
or both.

displays the current signal strength and battery level of the
handheld.
In low light conditions, you can increase the readability of the LCD
by using the backlighting feature. To activate backlighting, press the
silver key once. The backlight will shut off automatically if you do
not press any keys or use the trackwheel for more than 20 seconds.
(You can manually turn off the backlighting by pressing the silver
key again.)
Keyboard and trackwheel
The 33-key QWERTY keyboard provides access to all of the regular
alphabetic characters; numeric characters, a symbols library,
punctuation, and special characters can be generated using the
orange ALT key in combination with the other keys. For easy typing,
hold the device in both hands and use your thumbs. Roll and click
the trackwheel for navigation and selection.
A trackwheel that clicks!
The trackwheel on the handheld has a unique feature for greater
usability and performance: it clicks! Pressing down on the
trackwheel with your thumb is comparable to the clicking function
of your PC mouse. Click to open menus and to select functions and
menu options.
Holster (belt clip)
A holster, equipped with a belt clip, accompanies the handheld.
While in the holster, the handheld is protected and wearable. You
can choose different forms of message notification based on whether
the handheld is in or out of the holster.
When you receive a new message and remove the handheld from
the holster within five seconds, notification (based on how you’ve
set it) stops and the most recently received message will be open. If

you pull the handheld out of the holster and quickly replace it,
notification stops but the message will remain marked unread. See
“Setting message notification” on page 37 for information on
notification options.
Serial port
The serial port on the bottom of the handheld fits into the prongs of
the docking cradle. You must connect the docking cradle to your PC
to use the Desktop Software (provided on the CD with your
package).
The Desktop Software supports standard USB-to-serial port
converters. See Chapter 3, “Using the Desktop Software”, for more
information on installation procedures and serial connection details.
Docking cradle
The docking cradle provides a link between the handheld and your
PC, so that you may use the Desktop Software provided with your
package. See Chapter 3, “Using the Desktop Software” for more
information on the cradle and the capabilities of the Desktop
Software.
Charger
The handheld is designed to operate for one week or more on a full
charge; exact battery life, however, will depend on factors such as
usage and quality of coverage. The handheld contains an internal
lithium cell. The docking cradle (see description above) is also used
to recharge this cell.
To charge the handheld, connect the AC adapter to the cradle's
serial port connector, plug into a wall outlet, and insert the
handheld into the cradle. The Desktop Software does not need to be
running for charging to occur, nor does the cradle need to be
connected to your PC. When the handheld is charging, the battery

icon will change to a charging icon. Once the handheld is fully
charged, the battery icon will replace the charging icon. See page 33
for a list of handheld status icons.
The handheld can be kept at a full charge by “topping up” the
battery every day for 10-15 minutes. From an empty battery, a full
charge can be achieved in approximately 3 hours. It is not necessary
to drain the battery completely before recharging.
If the battery level becomes too low, the signal strength bars (located
in the top right corner of the Home screen, next to the battery icon)
will be replaced by “BAT”. This is an indication that it is time to
recharge the handheld. In this state, all radio functions, such as
sending and receiving email, will be disabled until the battery is
recharged.
Turning on your handheld
When you receive your handheld, you must first insert it into the
charging cradle and allow it to charge to full battery power. (You
can view the strength of the battery in the top right corner of the
Home screen.) See page 48 for more information on connecting your
handheld to your PC.

Check that the handheld’s radio has been turned on (select
the TURN WIRELESS ON icon), and check that you are
within range of network coverage (check the coverage
indicator in the Home screen). See page 45 for more

is set to No. When this field is set to Yes, you will only be
notified of level 1 messages, rather than all messages. See

Resetting the handheld
On rare occasions, the handheld may report an internal handheld
error message, instructing you to press ‘R’ to reset. Doing so will
return the handheld to normal operation after a few minutes. Try
sending yourself a message and check that all the information has
been properly restored in the Status screen.

Frequently asked questions — Resetting the handheld 167
There is also a reset hole on the back of the handheld, located in the
information label. Normally, you will not need to use this method of
reset. However, if the handheld ‘locks up’ (no longer responds
when you press keys or use the trackwheel) you can use this
method to reset the handheld. One end of a paper clip can be
inserted into this hole to press the reset button, restarting and
restoring the handheld to normal operation.
Note
You can also reset the handheld by simultaneously pressing
the ALT + SHIFT + BACKSPACE keys.
Messages and other information stored on the handheld will not be
lost. If you were in the process of composing a message, however,
the message will be lost.
If you reset your handheld, you will not lose the connection with
your PC. After you reset your handheld, synchronize with the
Desktop Manager to ensure that all information has been restored.

Limited Warranty
Research In Motion Limited ("RIM"), the manufacturer of the RIM
857 Wireless Handheld (which together with the Holster and RIM
857 Wireless Handheld Cradle comprise the RIM 857 Wireless
Handheld Hardware), and the RIM 857 Wireless Handheld Desktop
Software, warrants to YOU, the end-user ("YOU"), that the RIM 857
Wireless Handheld Hardware will be free from defects in
workmanship and materials for a period of one (1) year from the
date that the RIM 857 Wireless Handheld Hardware was first
purchased by YOU as an original end-user (the “Applicable
Warranty Period”). This Limited Warranty is not transferable.
During the Applicable Warranty Period, the RIM 857 Wireless
Handheld Hardware, or one or more of the RIM 857 Wireless
Handheld Hardware components, will be repaired or replaced at
RIM's option, without charge for either parts or labor. If the RIM 857
Wireless Handheld Hardware (or component thereof) is repaired or
replaced during the Applicable Warranty Period, the Applicable
Warranty Period will expire upon the later of the 91st day after
repair or replacement or the end of the Applicable Warranty Period.
PLEASE CONSULT YOUR SERVICE PROVIDER FOR
INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO OBTAIN CUSTOMER
SUPPORT FOR YOUR RIM 857 WIRELESS HANDHELD.
This Limited Warranty does not apply to normal wear and tear, and
does not cover repair or replacement of any RIM 857 Wireless
Handheld Hardware damaged by misuse, accident, abuse, neglect,
misapplication, or defects due to repairs or modifications made by
anyone other than RIM or its authorized service representative. This
Limited Warranty does not cover physical damage to the surface of
the RIM 857 Wireless Handheld Hardware, including cracks or
scratches on the LCD screen. This Limited Warranty does not apply
to any equipment other than the RIM 857 Wireless Handheld
Hardware as defined in this Limited Warranty, e.g., it does not
apply to any external battery provided with your purchase, rental,

lease or other means of acquiring the RIM 857 Wireless Handheld
Hardware, or any damage caused by the leakage or any other
malfunction of an external battery or any other accessory or
peripheral equipment. The Limited Warranty also does not apply if
the malfunction results from the use of the RIM 857 Wireless
Handheld Hardware in conjunction with accessories, products,
services or ancillary or peripheral equipment not approved or
provided by RIM, and where it is determined by RIM that such
malfunction is not the fault of the RIM 857 Wireless Handheld
Hardware itself. Additionally, if malfunction results from the
failure of the user to abide by the Safety Information contained in
the package with the RIM 857 Wireless Handheld, the Limited
Warranty may be void, and if it is not void, it shall not apply. Data
backup is presumed to be the responsibility of the user of this RIM
857 Wireless Handheld Hardware. RIM is not responsible for data
that may be damaged or lost at any time, including, without
limitation data lost or damaged during the servicing of this RIM 857
Wireless Handheld Hardware, or through the use of
synchronization software. The wireless data service provided for
the RIM 857 Wireless Handheld is provided from a third party
provider, and therefore RIM cannot guarantee or warrant that the
wireless data service will always be available or will always
function properly. For this and other reasons, the RIM 857 Wireless
Handheld should not be relied upon for the transmission of data
relating to emergency, life-threatening, or mission critical situations,
and RIM disclaims any liability on its behalf for events or damages
resulting from such reliance or the failure of the wireless data
service to perform or to be available for your use of the RIM 857
Wireless Handheld, including, without limitation, the lack of service
coverage in the area in which YOU wish to use the RIM 857 Wireless
Handheld. To the extent the third party providing the wireless data
service provides any warranties or guarantees that may be passed
on to YOU, such warranties and/or guarantees are automatically
passed on to YOU without any further effort on your part or on the
part of RIM. REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT OF THE PRODUCT IS
THE EXCLUSIVE REMEDY PROVIDED TO YOU. UNDER THE
