Pocket PC to its fullest potential. The CD also contains Microsoft
add-on software applications and Pocket PC enhancements that
can be installed directly onto your Pocket PC for use on the go.
Note: It is recommended that you save the original packaging for
the CD because the Microsoft product key for installing

You will need that information if you ever need to reinstall
Outlook on your personal computer.
How Do I Install Microsoft ActiveSync?
Microsoft ActiveSync, located on the Companion CD, is software
that allows your iPAQ Pocket PC and your personal computer
to communicate with each other by setting up a partnership.
Before you insert your iPAQ Pocket PC into the USB
Synchronization Cradle/Charger, you must first install
ActiveSync onto your personal computer.
Note: If you have previously installed ActiveSync on your
computer, you do not have to uninstall the software to proceed
with installing the latest version of ActiveSync.
To install Microsoft ActiveSync, follow the steps below:
1. First insert the Companion CD that came with your Pocket
PC into the CD-ROM drive on your personal computer. Be
sure to do this before inserting your iPAQ Pocket PC into the

You will know ActiveSync installed successfully when you
see the Set Up a Partnership screen. Refer to the next
section, “How Do I Create an ActiveSync Partnership?” for
more information.
Note: If you are having trouble installing ActiveSync and have

How Do I Create an ActiveSync
Partnership?
A Microsoft ActiveSync partnership allows your iPAQ Pocket PC
and your personal computer to communicate with each other. To
synchronize your HP iPAQ Pocket PC h6300 series and your
personal computer, you must first create a partnership using
ActiveSync. You only need to create a partnership once.
These instructions will give you information on creating a basic
partnership. Other partnership options are available, and these
instructions are found in Chapter 12, “Using ActiveSync,” of the
User’s Guide located on the Companion CD.
To create an ActiveSync partnership between your iPAQ Pocket
PC and your personal computer, first install ActiveSync.
1. When the Get Connected screen is displayed during
ActiveSync installation, connect the USB Synchronization
Cradle/Charger to your personal computer by attaching the
free end of the USB cable to the USB port on your personal
computer. Then connect one end of the AC Adapter to the
cradle and the other end to an electrical outlet.

How Do I Perform a Soft (“Normal”)
Reset?
A soft reset (also known as a normal reset) stops all running
applications, but does not erase any programs or saved data.
Ä
CAUTION: Be sure to save your data in all currently open applications

How Do I Perform a Hard (“Full”)
Reset?
Perform a hard reset (also known as a full reset) when you want
to clear all settings, programs, and data from Random-Access
Memory (RAM).
Ä
CAUTION: If you perform a hard reset, your iPAQ Pocket PC returns
to its default settings and loses all information (files, settings, etc.) that is
not recorded in ROM. However, information stored in iPAQ File Store
will not be lost. Also, all of your GPRS connection methods are erased
with a hard reset, except the default GPRS connection with T-Mobile.

with the following wireless technology terms.
Term
Definition
802.11b
The standard specification for wireless local
area networks, often called Wi-Fi.
802.1x
A standard designed to enhance the security
of Wi-Fi networks by providing an
authentication framework.
Authentication
The verification of the identity of a person or
process. For example, in a communication
system, authentication verifies that messages
really come from their stated source, similar
to a signature on a (paper) letter. Logically,
authentication precedes authorization even
though they might appear to occur
simultaneously.
Authorization
The process of granting or denying someone
access to a network resource.
Bluetooth
A telecommunication industry specification
that allows Bluetooth-enabled devices
(mobile phones, computers, and some
Pocket PCs) short-range connections and
provides fast, reliable, wireless
communication.
Data Encryption
A conversion process that is used for
protecting data.
HotSpots
Public or private areas where there is a
wireless access point available. This wireless
connection could be located, for example, at
a library or cyber cafe.

Address
A number that identifies each sender or
receiver of information (sent in packets)
across the Internet.
Media Access Control
(MAC) Address
A computer’s unique hardware number in a
network. For example, on an Ethernet LAN,
it’s the same as your Ethernet address.
When you are connected to the Internet a
correspondence table relates your IP address
to your computer’s MAC address on the
LAN.
Service Set Identifier
(SSID)
A sequence of characters that uniquely
identifies (i.e., names) a Wi-Fi network. This
identification number uses a maximum
number of 32 characters and is case
sensitive.
Virtual Private Network
A way of providing users (i.e., remote
offices, telecommuters, etc.) secure access to
their organization’s network by way of the
Internet.
Wired Equivalent
Privacy (WEP)
A security protocol designed to provide
Wi-Fi networks with the same level of
security usually expected on a LAN.
Wireless Fidelity (WiFi)
The term used for a high-frequency wireless
networking.
Wireless Local Area
Network (WLAN)
A wireless network in which a mobile user
can connect to a local area network through
a wireless connection.
Wireless Access Point
Physical hardware (device) or computer
software that acts as a hub for users of
wireless devices to connect to a local area
network.

How Do I Use Wi-Fi?
Wireless access eliminates the need to use cables to connect your
Pocket PC to the Internet. However, to be able to use a Wi-Fi
network, you must have a Wireless Access Point. These access
points transmit data to and from your wireless device. Your
Pocket PC can connect to an 802.11b Wi-Fi network or connect
directly to other Wi-Fi enabled devices.
With Wi-Fi, you can:
■
Access the Internet
■
Send and receive e-mail
■
Access corporate network information
■
Use virtual private networks (VPN) for secure remote access

and then tap the Wi-Fi icon.
43
360338-xx1 Onyx How Do I.book Page 44 Wednesday, June 23, 2004 1:34 PM
If Wi-Fi is powered on, the Wi-Fi icon background turns from
gray to amber to green, and the Wi-Fi LED (located to the left of
the power button) blinks green to indicate Wi-Fi is on.
Note: A blinking amber Wi-Fi LED indicates Wi-Fi is on but not
connected, and a blinking green Wi-Fi LED indicates Wi-Fi is on
and associated with another device.
Even though the Wi-Fi LED flashes to indicate Wi-Fi is turned
on, it does not necessarily mean a connection has been
established with another device or access point.
Alternatively, you can use the Data Connectivity icon in the
Navigation bar to turn Wi-Fi on and off:
1. Tap the Data Connectivity icon in the Navigation bar.
2. When the Data Connectivity box displays, select either Turn
On Wi-Fi or Turn Off Wi-Fi to complete the action.

Pocket PC by using the phone option. These text messages are
sent and received through your wireless phone service provider
by using a phone number as the message address.

How Do I Recognize and Filter Spam
Text Messages (SMS)?
Spam is unsolicated e-mail on the Internet that sometimes can be
hard to filter. Customers can identify and filter unwanted e-mails
by setting up a filtering option found on the T-Mobile website.
Spam can be recognized by content if the From address in the
e-mail has an unexpected number of digits. For example, most
10-digit phone numbers are messages sent from other Text
Messaging (SMS) users and are not considered spam. However, if
the message is from a completely unfamiliar number containing
5-digits or more, this increases the chance the message is spam
but is not all inclusive.
To set up spam filtering:
1. Login to the T-Mobile web site at www.t-mobile.com.
2. Select Communications > Two-Way Text Messaging >
Spam/Keyword Filters option located on the left-hand side
of the screen.
57
360338-xx1 Onyx How Do I.book Page 58 Wednesday, June 23, 2004 1:34 PM
On the “Message Forwarding and Spam Blocking” screen,
spam filters (as well as forwarding rules) can be specified.
Filters can scan the To: field, the From: field and Subject:
field for any string of text that the customer judges to be
likely spam keywords.
How Do I Set Up T-Mobile Alerts?
T-Mobile alerts are brief text messages such as e-mail
notification, weather forecasts, sports scores, daily jokes, etc.
T-Mobile customers can choose which alerts they would like to
receive. Customers can also receive e-mail notification alerts
through “MyEmail” service which provides a brief summary of
the e-mail content.
To set up T-Mobile alerts:
1. Login to the T-Mobile web site at www.t-mobile.com.
2. Select Entertainment, and then the Alerts option.
3. Check the boxes for the alerts desired. Note that some of
these are scheduled alerts and some are on demand.
For more details on T-Mobile alerts, refer to the Help Notes listed
on this page.
