The Socket Cordless 56K Modem with Bluetooth
Wireless Technology allows you to transform
your mobile computer into a portable data
communications tool. Now you can check email,
fax, and browse the web wherever there is an
available analog telephone line.
The Cordless 56K Modem connects to an analog phone line and provides
up to 330 feet (100 meters) of wireless network access from any Bluetooth
enabled Palm PDA, Pocket PC, Windows notebook, or other Bluetooth
enabled device that supports a DUN client.
No software installation is necessary to use the modem.
About Socket’s Software
Socket developed special software expressly for Windows Mobile, including
support for square screens and landscape mode. Installing the software is
optional and offers enhanced features described below. For notebook
computers, no software installation is necessary.
Follow Socket’s Connection Setup wizard to quickly and easily
set up a dial-up connection to your Internet Service Provider or
office network. After you set up your modem connection, the
wizard links you directly to the Windows Mobile connection
manager, so you can start using your connection. Not compatible
with Windows Mobile 5.0.
Socket’ s Modem Utilities enables international travelers to
program either modem for different country codes, and it allows
users to adjust the speaker volume.
Plus, Socket’s status indicator applet puts a modem status icon in the status
bar of your device, so you can easily monitor the modem’s connection time.
Software updates: www.socketcom.com/support/support_56k.asp
System Requirements
Your device should have Bluetooth wireless technology, with support for a Dialup Networking Client.
Windows Mobile/CE devices: If you wish to install the optional software,
ActiveSync 4.0 or greater is required.

Regulatory Compliance
Telecom Regulatory Compliance
1.
This equipment complies with Part 68 of the FCC Rules. On the inside
of the Cordless 56K Modem (behind the battery) is a label that
contains, among other information, the FCC registration number. If
requested, provide this information to your telephone company.
2.
The registration jack USOC for the Cordless 56K Modem is
SCIMM06BBM56S.
3.
The REN is useful to determine the quantity of devices that may be
connected to the telephone line. Excessive RENs on the telephone line
may result in the devices not ringing in response to an incoming call. In
most, but not all areas, the sum of RENs of all devices should not
exceed five (5). To be certain of the number of devices that may be
connected to a line, as determined by the total RENs, contact the local
telephone company.
4.
An FCC compliant telephone cord and modular plug is provided with
this equipment. This equipment is designed to be connected to the
telephone network, which is Part 68 compliant. See installation
instructions for details.
5.

Radio Frequency Interference Requirements
This device complies with part 15 of the FCC rules and Industry Canada.
Operation is subject to the following conditions: (1) This device may not
cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference
received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.
This equipment is also ETS EN300 328-2, ETS EN301 489-1 and ETS
EN301 489-17 compliant. These limits are designed to provide reasonable
protection against harmful interference when the equipment is operated in a
commercial environment.
This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy
and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instruction manual,
may cause harmful interference to radio communications. Operation of this
equipment in a residential area is likely to cause harmful interference, in
which case the user will be required to correct the interference at his or her
own expense.
This equipment generates and radiates radio-frequency energy. To comply
with FCC RF exposure compliance requirements, the following antenna
installation and device operating configurations must be satisfied: (1) Users
are not permitted to make changes or modify the system in any way, and (2)
connecting external antennas to the card is prohibited. This device and its
antenna must not be co-located or operated with any other antenna or
transmitter.
To comply with Industry Canada RF exposure compliance requirements, the
following antenna installation and device operating configurations must be
satisfied: “The installer of this radio equipment must ensure that the antenna
is located or pointed such that it does not emit RF field in excess of Health
Canada limits for the general population; consult Safety Code 6, available at
Health Canada’s website http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/ehp/ehd/catalogue/rpb.htm”
If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television
reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on,
the user may try to correct the interference by one or more of the following
measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna of the radio or television.
• Increase the distance separating the equipment and the receiver.
• Connect the equipment to an outlet on a different branch circuit than that
of the receiver.
• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
