• Do not allow the leaking fluid to come in contact with eyes. If already in contact, DO NOT rub;
rinse with clean water immediately and seek medical advice.
• Take extra precautions to keep a leaking battery away from fire as there is a danger of ignition
or explosion.
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS FOR DIRECT SUNLIGHT
Keep this product away from excessive moisture and extreme temperatures. Do not leave the product or
its battery inside a vehicle or in places where the temperature may exceed 60°C (140°F), such as on a car
dashboard, window sill, or behind a glass that is exposed to direct sunlight or strong ultraviolet light for
extended periods of time. This may damage the product, overheat the battery, or pose a risk to the vehicle.
PREVENTION OF HEARING LOSS
CAUTION: Avoid potential hearing loss
Prolonged exposure to loud sounds (including music) is the most common cause of preventable hearing
loss. Some scientific research suggests that using portable audio devices, such as portable music players and
cellular telephones, at high volume settings for long durations may lead to permanent noise-induced hearing
loss. This includes the use of headphones (including headsets, earbuds and Bluetooth® or other wireless
devices). Exposure to very loud sound has also been associated in some studies with tinnitus (a ringing in the
ear), hypersensitivity to sound and distorted hearing. Individual susceptibility to noise-induced hearing loss
and other potential hearing problems varies.
The amount of sound produced by a portable audio device varies depending on the nature of the sound, the
device, the device settings and the headphones. You should follow some commonsense recommendations
when using any portable audio device:
• Set the volume in a quiet environment and select the lowest volume at which you can hear adequately.
• When using headphones, turn the volume down if you cannot hear the people speaking near you or if
the person sitting next to you can hear what you are listening to.
• Do not turn the volume up to block out noisy surroundings. If you choose to listen to your portable
device in a noisy environment, use noise-cancelling headphones to block out background
environmental noise.
• Limit the amount of time you listen. As the volume increases, less time is required before your hearing
could be affected.
• Avoid using headphones after exposure to extremely loud noises, such as rock concerts, that might
cause temporary hearing loss. Temporary hearing loss might cause unsafe volumes to sound normal.
• Do not listen at any volume that causes you discomfort. If you experience ringing in your ears, hear
muffled speech or experience any temporary hearing difficulty after listening to your portable audio
device, discontinue use and consult your doctor.

1.5 Navigating on Your Device
There are different ways you can navigate and interact with the interface of your device.
Finger-touch control
A quick and easy way to interact with the Today screen and the whole interface of your device is by touch.
Basically, the following are the types of actions, called finger gestures, you would use when interacting with
your device:
Touch or tap
When selecting items on the screen, such as the Start menu, programs and settings icons, and large on-screen
buttons, simply touch them with your finger. Apply some pressure with your finger pad when touching an
item on the screen.
Tapping means to touch lightly and quickly with your finger pad or fingertip. On screens that display smallersize items, you can more accurately select an item by tapping it with your fingertip.
Finger zooming and panning
In programs such as Album and Opera Mobile, you can use finger gestures when zooming and panning. See
Chapter 3, 8 and 11 for details.
Scrolling
When browsing the contacts list, web pages, and documents, slowly swipe your finger vertically across the
screen to scroll. This allows you to scroll by page and to view the content or available selections as you scroll.
The direction of swiping resembles the way you move a printed document as you are reading it.
For detailed instructions, see “Finger scrolling” in Chapter 3. .
Getting Started 19
Slide
Sliding on the touch screen also involves dragging with your finger, but you need to press and hold your
finger with some pressure before you start to drag. While dragging, do not release your finger until you have
reached the target position.
Advancing playback
In players that have a progress bar, such as Windows Media® Player Mobile, slide your finger horizontally on
the progress bar to advance forward or move backward in the music or video you are playing.
Flick
Flicking the screen is similar to swiping, except that you need to swipe your finger in light, quicker strokes.
This finger gesture is always in a vertical direction, such as when flicking the contacts list.
Stylus
You can use the stylus to navigate and interact with the touch
screen. To use the stylus, pull it out from the stylus compartment at
the bottom of the right panel of your device. If the backlight is off,
removing the stylus automatically turns the backlight back on.
The stylus is magnetic and sticks to the side when held close to the
device. This prevents you from accidentally losing or misplacing the
stylus.
Basically, you tap with the stylus to open programs and select items on the screen, and you tap and hold on
the screen to open a shortcut menu. You can also use the stylus the same way as what you do with finger
gestures, such as swiping, sliding and flicking on the screen.
Navigation Control
On the Today screen and in many programs on your device, you can use the Navigation Control for directional
control. Press the directional arrows to navigate up, down, left, and right on the screen. When an item has
been selected on the screen, press the ENTER button (the center button) to confirm your selection.
The Navigation Control is also touch sensitive and can be used for zooming. Slide your finger clockwise
around the Navigation Control to zoom in, counterclockwise to zoom out.
Sliding your finger clockwise
Sliding your finger

The following programs allow you to use the Navigation Control for zooming:

7.2 Working With Company E-mails
Your device gives you instant access to your company e-mails and lets you manage your messages easier.
Direct Push, Fetch Mail, Remote e-mail search, and e-mail flags are just some of the tools you can use to
manage your e-mails.
Note Some messaging features depend on the Microsoft Exchange Server version used in your company. Check with
your network administrator for the availability of these features.
Automatic synchronization through Direct Push
Direct Push technology (push e-mail feature) enables you to receive new e-mails on your device as soon as they
arrive in your Inbox on the Exchange Server. Items such as contacts, calendar and tasks are also immediately
updated onto your device when these items have been changed or new entries have been added on the
Exchange Server. To make Direct Push work, you need to have a Wi-Fi or data connection on your device.
You need to perform a full synchronization between your device and the Exchange Server first before Direct
Push can be enabled.
RequirementThe Direct Push feature works for your device only if your company is using Microsoft Exchange
Server 2003 Service Pack 2 (SP2) with Exchange ActiveSync or higher version.
You can turn on Direct Push in the Comm Manager or ActiveSync.
To turn on Direct Push in Comm Manager
1. To open the Comm Manager, tap Start > Settings > Connections tab > Comm Manager.

Tip
To set the days and hours that make up your peak and off-peak times, tap the peak times link at the bottom of the
screen.
Instant download through Fetch Mail
The Fetch Mail feature downloads an entire e-mail immediately without the need for you to perform a full
Send/Receive action. This limits the download to just the e-mail message that you want and helps save data
cost.
RequirementFetch Mail works for your device only if your company is using Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 or
higher.
1. Tap Start > Messaging > Outlook E-mail.
2. Open an e-mail message.
3. By default, only the first few words of the message is shown. To download the whole e-mail, fingerscroll to the end of the message, then tap Get the rest of this message.
4. Wait for the remainder of the message body to download.

10.1 Guidelines and Preparation
for Using GPS
94 Navigating on the Road
10.1 Guidelines and Preparation for Using GPS
If you install a GPS software on your device, please follow these guidelines before and when using your device
as a GPS device.
• Do not operate the GPS system while driving. The plotted GPS route is only for driving reference. It
should not interfere with actual driving behavior.
• When using the device inside a vehicle, use the car holder to mount the device securely in place. Avoid
placing the device in the areas shown in the following diagram:
1 Do not place where it will block the driver’s vision.
2 Do not place where air bags could deploy.
3 Do not place anywhere in the vehicle without securing the device in the holder.
• Please use the GPS system cautiously. Users shall be liable for any damages resulting from negligent
operation of the system.
• The GPS signal cannot pass through solid non-transparent objects. Signal reception may be affected by
obstructions such as high-rise buildings, tunnels, bridges, forests, weather (rainy or cloudy days), etc. If
the vehicle’s visor contains metal, it will be difficult for the GPS signal to pass through.
• Wireless communication products (such as mobile phones or radar-detecting devices) may interfere
with the satellite signal, resulting in unstable signal reception.
• The Global Positioning System (GPS) is built and operated by the US Defense Department. The
Department is responsible for the accuracy and maintenance of the system. Any changes that the
Department makes may affect the accuracy and function of the GPS system.
• Do not leave your device in a vehicle or expose the device to direct sunlight to avoid overheating the
battery, which could pose damage to the device or risk to the vehicle.

FCC Hearing-Aid Compatibility (HAC) Regulations for Wireless Devices
On July 10, 2003, the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Report and Order in WT Docket 01309 modified the exception of wireless phones under the Hearing Aid Compatibility Act of 1988 (HAC Act)
to require digital wireless phones be compatible with hearing-aids. The intent of the HAC Act is to ensure
reasonable access to telecommunications services for persons with hearing disabilities.
While some wireless phones are used near some hearing devices (hearing aids and cochlear implants), users
may detect a buzzing, humming, or whining noise. Some hearing devices are more immune than others to
this interference noise, and phones also vary in the amount of interference they generate.
The wireless telephone industry has developed a rating system for wireless phones, to assist hearing device
users find phones that may be compatible with their hearing devices. Not all phones have been rated. Phones
that are rated have the rating on their box or a label located on the box.
The ratings are not guarantees. Results will vary depending on the user’s hearing device and hearing loss.
If your hearing device happens to be vulnerable to interference, you may not be able to use a rated phone
successfully. Trying out the phone with your hearing device is the best way to evaluate it for your personal
needs.
142 Appendix
M-Ratings: Phones rated M3 or M4 meet FCC requirements and are likely to generate less interference to
hearing devices than phones that are not labeled. M4 is the better/higher of the two ratings. RAPH500 is rated
M3.
Please power off the Bluetooth function while using hearing aid devices with your RAPH500.
Hearing devices may also be rated. Your hearing device manufacturer or hearing health
professional may help you find this rating. Higher ratings mean that the hearing device
is relatively immune to interference noise. The hearing aid and wireless phone rating
values are then added together. A sum of 5 is considered acceptable for normal use. A
sum of 6 is considered for better use. A sum of 8 is considered for best use.
In the above example, if a hearing aid meets the M2 level rating and the wireless phone meets the M3 level
rating, the sum of the two values equal M5. This should provide the hearing aid user with “normal usage”
while using their hearing aid with the particular wireless phone. “Normal usage” in this context is defined as a
signal quality that is acceptable for normal operation.
The M mark is intended to be synonymous with the U mark. The T mark is intended to be synonymous
with the UT mark. The M and T marks are recommended by the Alliance for Telecommunications Industries
Solutions (ATIS). The U and UT marks are referenced in Section 20.19 of the FCC Rules. The HAC rating and
measurement procedure are described in the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) C63.19 standard.
