Exchange ActiveSync in Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 allows
the HP iPAQ to access corporate information on a server running
Exchange server (SHOULD THIS BE ACTIVESYNC?). It
allows ActiveSync-enabled devices to synchronize mailbox items
over the air (GPRS or wireless connection) without using a
desktop computer, cradle, and desktop synchronization software.
You can also synchronize your mobile device with the Exchange
server using the desktop pass-through option present in all
Windows Mobile-based devices. Desktop pass-through allows
your cradled device to use the desktop computer’s Internet
connection to connect directly to Exchange ActiveSync. You can
then perform tasks such as browsing the Internet or downloading
IMAP/POP3 e-mail messages.

Use the HP iPAQ Mobile Messenger phone to make and receive
telephone calls and send and receive Text and MMS (Multimedia
Message Service) messages. Your mobile phone service provider
may provide other useful services such as voice mail.
The phone can also be used to connect to an Internet Service
Provider (ISP) or work network so you can browse the Web and
read e-mail. You can connect to the Internet or work network
over GPRS/EDGE (General Packet Radio Service/Enhanced
Data Rates for Global Evolution), or you can use GSM (Global
System for Mobile Communications) for dial-up access.
For information on establishing GSM/GPRS/EDGE data
connections, refer to Chapter 7, “Making Your Data
Connections.”
Co
Note: EDGE is an enhancement to GPRS technology and enables
higher speed data connections than GPRS. This means faster
phone multimedia capabilities such as sending and receiving
SMS/MMS messages, and sharing video clips. Check with your
service provider to see if they support EDGE technology. If your
service provider does not support the EDGE network, the HP
iPAQ will default to GPRS.

A SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) card is required to operate
the phone features on your HP iPAQ. The SIM card is a plastic
card embedded with a computer chip that stores and transacts
data. After the SIM card is activated by your mobile phone
service provider, the computer chip will contain information
about your phone number, service, registration information, and
contacts, as well as memory to store speed dial numbers and text
or SMS/MMS messages that you receive.
With the exception of emergency calls, the SIM card must be
inserted into the SIM slot under the battery on the back of the HP
iPAQ in order for voice/data calls to work.
To dial an emergency number from the Phone keypad, tap the
emergency number appropriate for your region, and then tap Talk
or Send.

This HP iPAQ supports TTY (Tele-typewriter) functionality.
This functionality allows hearing-impaired persons to
communicate using existing telephony infrastructure, including
cellular phones. To achieve this, separately purchased TTY
devices must be connected to the telephones on both ends of a
telephone call session, and the TTY software application must be
downloaded from the Companion CD onto the HP iPAQ. The
sending TTY device generates a distinct audio tone for every
supported character, and these tones are decoded and converted
back into text on the receiving TTY device.
Co
Due to the use of audio compression codecs in modern digital
cellular telephones, these TTY audio tones may be
unintentionally distorted while being transmitted through cellular
telephones. In order for TTY devices to continue to work in
cellular networks, the cellular telephone must be set into a mode
that optimizes the compression codec to handle TTY tones
instead of the human voice.
Note: For information on connecting TTY devices to the HP
iPAQ, refer to the TTY device manufacturer’s documentation.
Enabling TTY Support
Before connecting the optional TTY device to the phone, you
must enable TTY support in order to prepare the HP iPAQ Phone

Using GSM/GPRS/EDGE Connections
GSM/GPRS/EDGE technology is integrated into your HP iPAQ.
To send or receive data over a GSM/GPRS/EDGE network, you
must have an account with a mobile telephone service provider
that supports GSM/GPRS/EDGE data services and an activated
SIM card. The service provider must enable the GPRS data

Getting Acquainted
Your HP iPAQ includes Global Positioning System (GPS)
Navigation technology. GPS Navigation technology is based on a
worldwide system of GPS satellites orbiting earth that
continuously transmit digital radio signals. These radio signals
contain data on the satellites’ locations and their exact clock time
and are used to determine your location on the earth.
Note: To access GPS satellites and establish your exact position,
a line of sight is required. This means your position must be
situated outdoors or close to a window.
Co
The GPS Navigation software provides you with turn-by-turn
driving directions between your current location and your
destination. With GPS, you can also look up and navigate to
nearby restaurants, hotels, movie theaters, gas stations, museums
and other points of interest.
To receive GPS radio signals, your GPS Navigation software
must be launched and you must have a map downloaded onto
your HP iPAQ or memory card. You can select one free map to
download from a list of cities in the United States, Canada, and
Western Europe. Instructions for downloading are included in the
“Downloading a Map” section.

Downloading a Map
Important: A good policy to follow is to download all GPS maps
to an SD memory card or to iPAQ File Store folder for
safekeeping. This will prevent you from losing your map from
possible power losses to the device, or from loss of software
should it be necessary to perform a hard reset on the HP iPAQ.
H

You can download one free city map anywhere in the United
States, Canada or Western Europe.
Note: Be sure to select your city carefully because you are
allowed to download only one map free-of-charge. To download
map upgrades or additional maps to your HP iPAQ, go to
http://www.tomtom.com/gpsnavigation. A real-time traffic service is
also available on a subscription basis.
Co
Important: It is highly recommended that you cradle your HP
iPAQ to download the map. When the HP iPAQ uses the
connected cradle, it uses the computer’s internet connectivity to
download the map. Although it is possible to download a map
through a GPRS connection, using a cradled connection to your
personal computer is strongly recommended since map files are
quite large and could be corrupted if the GPRS connection is lost
during the download process. If you do not use a cradle
connection, HP iPAQ sets up a GPRS internet connection which
can be slow at times.
Important: Depending on your configuration, your personal
computer may access the Internet through a proxy server. Before
proceeding, make sure that your personal computer can access the
Internet. Then, launch the browser on your personal computer,
and click Tools > Internet Options > Connections > LAN
Settings. If the “Use automatic configuration script” option is
selected and the associated “Address” field is filled in, then you
may have difficulty with the following steps. This situation is

typically encountered on corporate networks. You will then need
to temporarily uncheck this option and fill in the appropriate
proxy server address and port in the Proxy Server section of that
screen. You may have to contact your corporate IT staff for this
information, or try it at home where proxy servers are less typical.
To download a map:
1. Place the HP iPAQ in the cradle and make sure the cradle is
connected to and synchronized with your personal computer.

chosen.
The behavior of the folders you create depends on whether you
are using ActiveSync, MMS, text messages, POP3, or IMAP4.
Co
If you use ActiveSync, e-mail messages in the Inbox folder in
Outlook will automatically be synchronized with your device.
You can select to synchronize additional folders by designating
them for ActiveSync; however, when you synchronize over the
air using Exchange ActiveSync, only Calendar, Contacts, and
E-mail folders will synchronize. The folders you create and the
messages you move will then be mirrored on the server. For
example, if you move two messages from the Inbox folder to a
folder named Family, and you have designated Family for
synchronization, the server creates a copy of the Family folder
and copies the messages into that folder. You can then read the
messages while away from your personal computer.
If you use MMS or text messages, messages are stored in the
Inbox folder.
If you use POP3 and you move e-mail messages to a folder you
created, the link is broken between the messages on the device
and their copies on the mail server. The next time you connect,
the mail server will see that the messages are missing from the
device Inbox and delete them from the server. This prevents you
from having duplicate copies of a message, but it also means that
you will no longer have access to messages that you move to
folders created from anywhere except the device.
User’s Guide
12–3
Using Inbox and Messaging
If you use IMAP4, the folders you create and the e-mail messages
you move are mirrored on the server. Therefore, messages are
available to you anytime you connect to your mail server,
whether it is from your HP iPAQ or personal computer. This
synchronization of folders occurs whenever you connect to your
mail server, create new folders, or rename/delete folders when
connected.
For all accounts except ActiveSync, you can access folder options
by tapping Tools > Manage Folders.

battery before setting up the unit, and recharge regularly. Your
HP iPAQ uses some power to maintain files in RAM and the
clock. While working at your desk, keep the HP iPAQ and AC
Adapter connected through the HP iPAQ cradle. When you
travel, it is recommended that you carry the AC Adapter, Charger
Adapter plug, or an optional spare battery with you.
Ä
CAUTION: Use only an HP approved battery for your HP iPAQ. Using
a battery not approved by HP will void the warranty. Inserting a battery
that does not comply with HP requirements may cause the HP iPAQ to
malfunction.

The HP iPAQ also has a small internal backup battery that allows
you to change the main battery without losing RAM data
(user-installed programs and data) as long as the main battery is
replaced immediately (within 15 minutes). The internal battery
can only be removed by qualified HP Technical Support.
Battery Saving Tip: To ensure you always have battery power

also be used to encrypt data stored on expansion cards.
When you enable HP ProtectTools, you have the option of
entering a PIN and/or password to access the HP iPAQ. If you
forget your PIN or password, you can access the device with a
backup question and answer or contact your administrator to
manually authenticate.
Note: HP ProtectTools does not replace or interact with the
security on your mobile phone’s SIM card. While you can use the
same PIN and/or password for both HP ProtectTools and your
SIM card, it is recommended, for maximum security, that you use
different PINs and/or passwords.

Using Security Features
CAUTION: HP ProtectTools helps protect your HP iPAQ and the
data stored on it. If you are unable to access your device with any of
the above methods, there is no way to unlock your device. You have
to restore your device to factory settings, resulting in the loss of all
data on your HP iPAQ, including data stored in iPAQ File Store. It is
recommended that you remember your PIN/password and
question/answer.
If you are unable to access your device, you will still be able to use
your mobile phone to make and receive calls, and data stored on
your SIM card will not be lost. However, you will not be able to
access other applications (such as Contactsm, Tasks, or Notes) from
the phone application until you unlock your device.

CAUTION: If you tap the Reset Device button, you lose all data on
the device, including the iPAQ File Store. If you choose this option, be
aware that resetting iPAQ File Store could take a long time after the
iPAQ initialization process has been completed. It is recommended that
you connect your device to AC power during this period to avoid
timeouts or loss of power.
Co

If you do not answer your hint question successfully and you
selected the Pause before retrying question option on the
Fail-Safe Settings screen, there is an increasing time delay
between hint question/answer attempts until you enter the
correct answer. If you have completely forgotten the answer
to your hint question and will not remember it with further
attempts, then you must tap the Reset Device button.
If you perform a hard reset instead of tapping the Reset Device button
AND you selected Keep Security on the Fail-Safe Settings screen,
your HP iPAQ returns to its default settings and loses all information
(files, settings, etc.) except data stored in iPAQ File Store. In this case,
you must still answer your hint question to regain access to your HP
iPAQ. For more information on performing a hard reset, refer to
Chapter 1, “Getting to Know Your HP iPAQ Mobile Messenger.”

Since your HP wireless phone is a radio transmitter and receiver,
you may be exposed to Radio Frequency (RF) signals when it is
powered on. However, your HP wireless phone has been
designed so that it does not exceed the emission limits for
exposure to radio frequency energy that are set by the Federal
Communications Commission of the U.S. Government. These
limits are part of comprehensive guidelines and establish
permitted levels of RF energy for the general population. The
guidelines are based on the safety standards previously set by
both the United States and international standards:
Co
This equipment under test has been shown to be capable of
compliance for localized Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) for
uncontrolled environment/general population exposure limits
specified in ANSI/IEEE Standard C95.1-1992 and had been
tested in accordance with measurement procedures specified in
FCC/OET Bulletin 65 Supplement C (2001) and IEEE Standard
1528-200X (Draft 6.5, January 2002). Ministry of Health
(Canada), Safety Code 6. 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 phones employs a unit of measure known as the Specific
Absorption Rate (SAR). The SAR limit set by the FCC is
1.6W/kg.
NOTE: In the U.S. and Canada, the SAR limit for mobile phones
used by the public is 1.6 watts/kg (W/kg) averaged over one gram
of tissue. The standard incorporates a substantial margin of safety
to give additional protection to the public and to account for any
variations.
