Charging the battery
Battery consumption varies
based on personal usage.
Consumption factors
include signal strength,
speakerphone usage, and
whether calls are data or
voice calls.
Before using your Treo 650 smartphone, you need to charge the battery. It may not
turn on at all when you first remove it from the box. We recommend four hours for a
full charge, or until the indicator light is solid green.
1. Plug the AC charger into a wall outlet. If necessary, connect an adapter.
2. Connect the charger cable to the bottom of the Treo. Make sure the arrow on the
connector is facing up, toward your Treo screen.

When your Treo is
connected to a power
source, the indicator light
glows solid (versus
flashing), and the color
of the light indicates the
charging state.
A. Indicator light
3. To confirm your Treo is charging, check the indicator light.
• When the indicator light is solid red, your Treo is charging.
• When the indicator light turns solid green, your Treo is fully charged.
• If the indicator light does not turn on when you connect your Treo to the AC
charger, double-check the cable connection and the electrical outlet to which
it is connected.
12 :: Charging the battery
After you turn on your Treo smartphone, the onscreen battery icon displays
power status:
• Full battery icon
: Battery is charged
• Partial battery icon
: Battery has some power and is not charging
• Empty battery icon

Inserting the SIM card
Cingular Wireless may
already have inserted the
SIM card into your Treo. In
that case, skip to “Turning
Treo on and off” on
page 15.
Your subscriber identity module (SIM) card contains account information such as your
phone number and voicemail access number. To use the phone, email, or web features
of your Treo 650 smartphone, you need to insert the SIM card. If a SIM card did not
come with your Treo 650, Cingular Wireless will give you one when you subscribe. If
you have an older, 5-volt SIM card, you should request a newer, 3-volt SIM. This Treo
is not compatible with older 5-volt SIM cards.

Turning Treo on and off
You can use the Palm OS® features of your Treo 650 smartphone independently
of the wireless features and applications. In other words, the screen and phone are
designed to be turned off and on separately.
Turning your phone on and off
When you turn on your Treo, it connects to a mobile network so that you can make
and receive phone calls and use other wireless services.
1. Press and hold Power/End
to turn on your phone. If Sound Mode is on you’ll
hear a series of ascending tones. (See “Setting the ringer switch” on page 148 for
more on Sound Mode.) After your phone locates a signal, you can use the phone
and Internet features (if supported by the local network).
2. Press and hold Power/End
again to turn off your phone. If Sound Mode is on
you‘ll hear a series of descending tones. When your phone is off, your Treo is not
connected to any mobile network. You can still use the organizer and other Palm
OS features. This is ideal for airplane flights and for maximizing battery life.
Waking up the screen
To use the Palm OS features when your phone is off, you need to wake up the screen.
You can also turn off your phone’s screen without turning off your phone’s wireless
features.
1. Press Power/End
to wake up the screen.
2. Briefly press Power/End
to turn off the screen.
The indicator light flashes
green when your phone is
on and you’re inside a
coverage area. If you’re
outside a coverage area,
the indicator light flashes
amber.
Your Treo 650 includes a
keyboard backlight for lowlight conditions. The
keyboard backlight
activates automatically
when the screen turns on.
It turns off automatically
when the screen turns off
and when an active call
lasts longer than a minute.
You can also press any
application buttons on the
front of your phone to wake
up the screen and go
directly to the application
linked to that button.

Making your first call
We recommend that you charge your Treo 650 smartphone for a full four hours
(or until the indicator light is solid green) before using it for the first time.
If No Service appears in
the upper left, you are out
of a wireless coverage area.
If you believe you are in a
wireless coverage area and
this problem persists,

for assistance.

Setting up your computer
IMPORTANT: If you’re
upgrading from another
Palm Powered device,
follow the steps in
“Upgrading from another
Palm Powered® device” on
page 164 before you set up
your computer for your new
Treo.
If you want to synchronize
with another desktop
software program, contact
the software developer to
obtain a conduit if one is
available.
Synchronization lets you enter information on your computer (using Palm® Desktop
software or Microsoft Outlook for Windows) and then efficiently transfer that info to
your Treo 650 smartphone. At the same time, changes you make on your Treo are
transferred to Palm Desktop or Microsoft Outlook. Even if you manage all your
contacts on your Treo, synchronization is a great way to back up your info.
Before you can synchronize, you need to install the desktop synchronization software
on your computer. Even if you already own a Palm Powered® device and have
installed a previous version, you must install the software that came with your Treo
on the Software Installation CD.

Installing the desktop synchronization software on your computer
If you are installing on a
computer at work, make
sure your company allows
you to install new software.
Contact your company’s IT
department for help.
Your computer needs to have all its resources available to install the software. Follow
these guidelines for a successful installation:
1. Exit any applications that are currently running on your computer, including those
running in the background.
2. Insert the palmOne Software Installation CD into the CD drive on your computer.
If you are installing on a Mac, double-click the CD icon on the desktop, and then
double-click the palmOneSoftware.pkg icon.
3. Follow the onscreen instructions of the installation program. Please note these
important points about the installation process:
• If a language selection screen appears, click the same language you use on
your Treo.
• During the installation process, you will be prompted to synchronize for the
first time. See the next section for details.
32 :: Setting up your computer
Synchronizing contacts and
other information
Synchronizing means that information that is entered or updated in one place (your
phone or your computer) is automatically updated in the other—no need to enter
information twice. We strongly recommend that you synchronize your Treo and your
computer frequently to keep your information up-to-date (and backed up) in both
locations.
Before you can synchronize your contacts and other personal information, you must
install the software from the CD that came with your Treo. See “Installing the desktop
synchronization software on your computer” on page 32 for instructions.
If you use the default settings, information from all the following applications is
transferred each time you synchronize your phone with your computer:
If you choose to synchronize with Outlook, information from Contacts, Calendar, Tasks,
and Memos is synchronized with Outlook. You can also set up the VersaMail
application to synchronize with Outlook. Other info, such as photos, is synchronized
with Palm Desktop software.
We strongly recommend
that you install the
synchronization software
soon after you start using
your Treo, and that you
synchronize your Treo and
computer frequently to
keep your information
up-to-date (and backed up)
in both locations.
If you installed
Palm Desktop software, the
HotSync Manager icon
should appear in
the lower-right corner of
your computer screen.
1. Connect your Treo 650 smartphone to your computer, as described in “Connecting
your Treo to your computer” on page 31.
2. Press the HotSync button on the sync cable.
Synchronizing contacts and other information :: 33
If you use Microsoft
Exchange ActiveSync®,
your email and calendar
information synchronize
directly with your
company's Exchange
server. You must retrieve
email and calendar updates
from the VersaMail
application, they do not
update when you
synchronize with your
computer. See “Working
with Microsoft Exchange
ActiveSync” on page 73 for
more information. Your
contacts, tasks, and
memos sync with
Palm Desktop software or
Microsoft Outlook,
depending on which
desktop application
you use.
A
A. HotSync button
3. Wait for your Treo to display a message indicating that the process is complete.
• If nothing happens, make sure that you installed the desktop synchronization
software from the Software Installation CD that came with your Treo, and that
it is running on your computer.
• If you want to synchronize information with applications other than
Palm Desktop or Microsoft Outlook, you need to purchase additional third-party
conduit software.
• If you have any problems synchronizing, see “Synchronization (HotSync)” on
page 176 for troubleshooting suggestions.

Battery life
Battery life depends on individual usage. When used as a phone, your Treo battery
provides up to 6 hours of talk time or up to 300 hours of standby time.
Maximizing battery life
You can increase the life of your Treo battery by following a few easy guidelines.
Remember that battery life depends on how you use your Treo.
• Charge your Treo whenever you’re at your desk, or charge it overnight each day.
The Li-Ion battery in your Treo has a much longer useful life when it is topped off
frequently, versus charging it after it is fully drained.
• The wireless features (phone, email, messaging, and web) of your Treo generally
consume more power than its organizer features. However, if you spend a lot of
time using the camera, games, media players, eBooks, or other Palm OS
applications, keep an eye on the battery icon and charge when necessary.
• If you don’t plan to use the wireless features on your Treo for a while, you may want
to turn off your phone (see “Turning your phone on and off” on page 15). You can
forward calls to a different number or let all calls be picked up by voicemail (see
“Forwarding calls under certain conditions” on page 51).
• As with any mobile phone, if you are in an area with no wireless coverage, your
Treo searches for a signal, which consumes power. If you cannot move to an area
of better coverage, temporarily turn off your phone.
• Turn down the screen brightness (see “Adjusting the brightness” on page 149).
• Decrease the Auto-off setting in Power Preferences (see “Power Preferences” on
page 155). This turns off your screen automatically after a shorter period of
inactivity.
IMPORTANT: You must
charge your Treo fully
before using it the first
time. Wait until the
indicator light turns solid
green, which may take
up to four hours.
If the battery drains to
the point where your Treo
doesn’t turn on, the Treo
stores your info safely until
you recharge the battery.
To avoid draining the
battery, we recommend
that you charge and
synchronize your Treo every
day, especially if you use
your phone often.
If the battery is fully
drained, it may take a few
moments for the indicator
light to turn on while
charging.

Headset specifications
Your Treo uses a 2.5mm, 3-pin headset connector. Your Treo works with headsets that
are designed for this type of connector. When in doubt, ask the third-party headset
manufacturer if the product is compatible with Treo smartphones. If you hear a
headset buzz or poor microphone performance, your headset may be incompatible
with Treo.
Your Treo 650 is also compatible with headsets enabled with Bluetooth 1.1
wireless technology. This includes most of the headsets with Bluetooth wireless
technology currently available, as many of these headsets support both Bluetooth 1.1
and 1.2 wireless technology. Check the specifications for your headset to confirm
compatibility. Please note, however, that you cannot use a headset with Bluetooth
wireless technology to listen to MP3 files.
In addition to the headset
that came with your Treo,
you can use other thirdparty headsets.
To hear stereo through the
jack (such as music), you
should use a stereo
adapter or other accessory.
Visit www.palmOne.com for
more information on audio
accessories and for the
latest compatibility info.
The headset designed for
Treo 180/270/300 is not
compatible with Treo 650.

Connecting to devices with
Bluetooth wireless technology
If you’re using a hands-free
device with Bluetooth
wireless technology and it
is within range (30 feet),
Treo automatically routes
all calls to the hands-free
device instead of to the
handset. When a call
comes in, your Treo rings
and the headset beeps.
Even if you pick up the call
on your Treo, the call goes
to the headset.
Your phone must be on and
the Bluetooth setting must
be set to On for your phone
to be discoverable.
With your phone’s built-in Bluetooth wireless technology, you can connect to a
number of devices with Bluetooth wireless technology such as a headset, printer, or
GPS receiver, as well as to other phones and handhelds with Bluetooth wireless
technology. If your computer is enabled with Bluetooth wireless technology, you can
synchronize wirelessly, and even use your phone as a wireless modem for your
computer.
Once you set up a connection with a device with Bluetooth wireless technology, you
can communicate with that device whenever it is within range (about 30 feet).
Connecting to a headset with Bluetooth wireless technology
1. Go to Applications
and select Bluetooth
.
2. Select On.
3. Enter a Device Name for your phone. This is the name other devices with
Bluetooth wireless technology see when they connect to your phone.
4. Select the Discoverable pick list and select one of the following:
• Yes: Automatically establishes connections with devices with which you’ve
created a trusted pair. New devices can request a connection that you can
accept or refuse.
• No: Only devices with which you’ve already formed a trusted pair can find your
phone. New devices cannot request a connection.
58 :: Connecting to devices with Bluetooth wireless technology
5. Select the Dialup Networking pick list and select one of the following:
• On: Lets you use your Treo as a wireless modem for your laptop, so that you
can connect your computer to the Internet and use email applications.
• Off: Prevents you from using your Treo as a wireless modem for your laptop. If a
Dialup Networking session is in progress when you select this option, it ends
the session.
6. Select Setup Devices.
7. Select Hands-free Setup.
8. Follow the onscreen instructions to create a trusted pair with the specific device. In
some cases you may need to perform setup steps on the other device before you
can complete this step.
9. After you finish setting up the device, close the Bluetooth application.
When Dialup Networking is
on, you cannot use
browser, email, or
messaging applications on
your phone. You can use
these applications only on
the computer to which your
phone is connected. So, be
sure to turn off this option
when you’re not using your
Treo as a wireless modem.
Your Treo does not support
Bluetooth wireless
connections to stereo
headsets, keyboards, or
LAN access points.

Creating trusted pairs
After you set up a connection with your computer or other accessory devices with
Bluetooth wireless technology, you may want to set up other trusted devices, such as
a friend’s handheld. When your Treo recognizes a trusted device, it automatically
accepts communication, bypassing the discovery and authentication process.
After you set up your
Bluetooth wireless
connections and trusted
pairs, you can check the
Allow only trusted devices
to connect box for added
security protection.
Be sure to close the
Bluetooth application when
you’re done setting up
devices and creating

Sending and receiving email
VersaMail is not an email
provider. It works with an
account from a provider—
your Earthlink or BellSouth
account, for example—or a
corporate account to
transfer messages to
your phone.
If you’ve activated data services on your Treo, you’re ready to set up the VersaMail®
application on your phone. You can use the VersaMail account with your Earthlink or
BellSouth email account or any other POP3 or IMAP email account. You may also be
able use VersaMail with a corporate account.
Before you can use VersaMail with a given email account, you need to set up the
account in VersaMail. If you have multiple email accounts, you must set up a VersaMail
account for each one. You have three setup options:
• On a Windows computer, if the email account is already set up on your computer—
for example, if you use Outlook Express on your computer to access your Earthlink
account—you can transfer the account settings to your phone in just a few steps.
• On a Windows computer, if this is a new account, you can quickly set up the
account on your computer and synchronize the information to your phone.
• For either a new or an existing account, you can set up the account directly on
your phone.
If you are setting up a Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync® account, see “Working with
Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync” on page 73 for more information, and see the
VersaMail User Guide on the CD for setup instructions.

solutions which are easy to install and use. You can choose from among the following
Xpress Mail products for sending and receiving email on your phone.
Xpress Mail Enterprise Edition
Xpress Mail Enterprise Edition is a behind-the-firewall corporate email solution for the
Treo. It uses an end-to-end encryption model that leverages AES encryption
technology which is one of the industry's standards for secure messaging. Enterprise
Edition is a much faster way for companies to wirelessly enable their uses to access
email and corporate applications by eliminating the need to purchase costly software
licenses and servers. For more information on Enterprise Edition, go to
www.cingular.com/business/xpress_mail_enterprise_edition.
74 :: Sending and receiving email
Xpress Mail Network Edition
Xpress Mail Network Edition is a zero-footprint, hosted corporate email solution
for the Treo. In a hosted email solution, the wireless email server resides behind
Cingular's firewall instead of behind the customer's firewall and network. By
eliminating the need to purchase costly software licenses and servers, Network
Edition is a much faster way for companies to wirelessly enable their uses to access
email and corporate applications. For more information on Network Edition, go to
www.cingular.com/business/xpress_mail_ne.
Xpress Mail Personal Edition
Xpress Mail Personal Edition is an individual email solution for the Treo. It allows for
self-registration and a quick and easy setup for access to both personal and business
email. A software redirector is installed on your computer with a connection to the
Internet and sends email out to your phone wirelessly. Personal Edition allows for
easy access to POP3 and ISP email. To register for Personal Edition go to http://
xpressmailpe.cingular.com.

Connecting to a virtual private network
If you want to use your Treo to access your corporate email account or other files on
your corporate server, you may need to set up a virtual private network (VPN) on your
Treo. A VPN enables you to log in to your corporate server through the company's
firewall (security layer). Without a VPN, you cannot break through the firewall to gain
access to the server.
Locking your phone and info :: 161
You need to set up a VPN to access a corporate server in either of the following
two situations:
• Your company's wireless local area network (LAN) is located outside the firewall.
• Your company's wireless LAN is located inside the firewall, but you are trying to
access the network from outside the firewall (for example, from a public location
or at home).
Check with your company's system administrator to see if a VPN is required to
access the corporate network. If you need a VPN, you must purchase and install a
third-party VPN client to use this feature.
1. Install your third-party VPN client. See “Installing applications” on page 134
for details.
2. Go to Applications
and select Prefs

Upgrading from another Palm
Powered® device
Always use the same
language for your Treo and
your desktop software.
Otherwise, you may lose
information.
To transfer all compatible applications and information from your previous device to
your new Treo™ 650 smartphone:
1. Synchronize your old device with your old desktop software to back up your
information one last time.
2. Install the desktop synchronization software from the palmOne Software
Installation CD (see “Installing the desktop synchronization software on your
computer” on page 32). During the installation process, sync your new Treo with
your new desktop software. When prompted to select a username for your new
Treo, be sure to select the existing username for your old device.
3. Some third-party applications may be quarantined by HotSync® Manager because
they are not compatible with the Palm OS® software version 5.4 on your Treo. Do
not manually install any quarantined files (see the documentation that came with
the third-party applications for more information).
4. If you plan to continue using your old device, perform a hard reset (see “Performing
a hard reset” on page 169) to remove its associated username. Each device you
synchronize with your computer must have a unique name. The next time you
synchronize with your old device, be sure to assign it a new username.
If you experience problems with your Treo 650 after performing the upgrade steps in
this section, you may have incompatible applications that HotSync Manager did not
quarantine. Incompatible applications can lead to numerous issues, including soft or
hard resets, “system error” warnings, crashes, etc. You may need to create a new user
name for your Treo 650, and then manually install your third-party applications from

If you experience problems after upgrading, visit http://www.palmOne.com/us/
support/ and check the Knowledge Library for additional information about
transferring your information from your previous Palm Powered device to
your Treo 650.
After upgrading, there are a few things you need to know about your new Treo:
• Address Book: This application is now called Contacts. To open Contacts, press
the Phone/Send

wireless data account, these settings are automatically configured on your Treo. If
you prefer to use an older, manual dial-up connection, enter your Internet service
provider’s settings in Network Preferences.
5-way navigator compatibility: Some Palm OS 5 applications are optimized for a
5-way navigator on devices other than Treo. You may notice inconsistencies with
software that is not designed with Treo in mind.
Web browser bookmarks: You can use the Web browser on your Treo 650 to store
up to 100 bookmarks, but you cannot import or transfer bookmarks from other
web browsers, such as Web Pro.
Photos: You can use the Media Desktop application to transfer photos from your
old device onto your Treo 650 (Windows only). To transfer photos from your old
device onto your Treo 650, open the Media Desktop application, select your
username, click Add Media and locate the files in the backup folder. The files may
be located in any of the following folders:
• C:\Program Files\palmOne\Treo Pictures\(user name)
• C:\Program Files\Handspring\Treo Pictures\(user name)
• C:\Program Files\Palm\Treo Pictures\(user name)

Trouble installing the desktop
software?
The palmOne Software Installation CD installs the software and drivers that let you
synchronize with Palm Desktop software or Microsoft Outlook for Windows. If you
want to synchronize with a different personal information manager (PIM), you must
install a third-party solution. Contact the PIM’s author or vendor to learn if software is
available for your Treo.
1. Restart your computer.
2. Quit any active applications, including virus scanners and Internet security
applications.
3. Make sure you’re installing the version of the software that came with your Treo on
the palmOne Software Installation CD. Other versions may not work with this Treo.
4. Make sure your computer profile includes administrator rights to install software. In
large organizations, these are usually granted by the system administrator.

Resetting your Treo
Performing a soft reset
If you need to perform a
system reset and disable
conflicting applications,
always end the process
with a soft reset. This
returns your Treo to normal
operation.
A soft reset is similar to restarting a computer. If your Treo is not responding or
you have trouble synchronizing with your computer, a soft reset may help.
1. Press the Battery Door Release button and slide the battery door downward
to remove it from your Treo.
2. Use the stylus tip to gently press the reset button on the back of your Treo.
Performing a system reset
A system reset, also called a safe or warm reset, tells your Treo to stop what it’s doing
and start over again without loading any system extras. If your Treo loops or freezes
during a soft reset, a system reset may help. Performing a system reset allows you
to get out of an endless loop in order to uninstall a third-party application causing
the looping.
168 :: Resetting your Treo
1. Press the Battery Door Release button and slide the battery door downward
to remove it from your Treo.
2. While pressing and holding Up , use the tip of the stylus to gently press
the reset button on the back of your Treo.
3. When the Palm Powered logo appears, release Up .
4. Delete the third-party application that you suspect is causing the problem.
5. Perform a soft reset. The wireless features of your phone are not available until
you complete this step.
Performing a hard reset
A hard reset erases all information and third-party software on your Treo. Never
perform a hard reset without first trying a soft reset and a system reset. You can
restore previously synchronized information the next time you sync.
A hard reset can tell you whether a problem stems from your Treo or from an
application installed on it. If you do not experience the problem after you perform a
hard reset, the problem may be related to software you installed. See “Third-party
applications” on page 187 for suggestions on diagnosing third-party software issues.
1. Press the Battery Door Release button and slide the battery door downward to
remove it from your Treo.
Some third-party
applications do not create a
backup on your computer
when you synchronize. If
you perform a hard reset,
you may lose data in these
applications and you will
need to reinstall the
application after the hard
reset. Please contact the
developer to find out which
data is backed up during
synchronization.
2. While pressing and holding Power/End , use the tip of the stylus to gently
press the reset button on the back of your Treo.
3. Continue pressing and holding Power/End . First the palmOne logo appears
with a progress bar, and then the circular Palm Powered logo appears. When the
circular Palm Powered logo appears, release Power/End .
4. When the “Erase all data?” prompt appears, press Up
to confirm the hard reset.
5. If a language selection screen appears, select the same language you selected for
your desktop software.

Email
I have problems using my account
Occasionally you may experience problems using an email account after you set it up.
If you followed the account setup procedure and are experiencing problems using the
account, verify that the account complies with your email provider’s requirements by
following these steps:
• Verify both your password and your username for your email account.
• Some wireless service providers require you to be on their network to use your
email account. If this is the case, be sure to use your provider's network as the
connection type for the account.
• Some wireless service providers have other requirements specific to their service.
For example, Yahoo! requires you to set up POP mail forwarding for your Yahoo!
account to download email messages to your phone. Check with your service
provider to see if any provider-specific requirements exist.
• Service provider settings frequently change. If your email account was working but
you are currently experiencing problems, check with your service provider to see if
any of the account settings have changed.
I have problems sending and receiving email
Short periods of time when email is unavailable are common due to server problems
or poor wireless coverage. If you have problems sending or receiving mail for an
extended period of time, check with your ISP or email service provider to verify that
the service is working properly.
Email :: 181
Auto Sync is not working
If Auto Sync is occurring and you turn your phone off or the connection to your email
service provider is disconnected, the Auto Sync fails.
I have problems sending email
If you are able to receive email messages but cannot send them, try these steps,
in turn:
• Make sure your ISP or email provider allows you to access email on a wireless
phone. Several providers, like Hotmail, do not offer this option at all; other providers
require an upgrade to access email on a wireless phone.
• Turn on ESMTP. Many services require authenticated access, or ESMTP, to use
their SMTP servers.
• Enter the name of a different outgoing mail server for sending mail. Many ISPs,
such as cable companies, require that you have an Internet connection to their
network to send email through their servers. In this case, you can almost always
receive email from these accounts, but if you want to send email, you must send it
through another server.
I have problems synchronizing messages on my phone with
messages on my computer
Make sure you have chosen the same settings for the account on both your phone
and your computer. For example, if the account is set up on your phone to use the
POP protocol, check the HotSync Manager on your computer to make sure that POP
is selected as the protocol for that account.

My vCard or vCal email attachment isn’t forwarding correctly
Palm Desktop software provides several features that work with email client software
on a Windows computer. For these features to work correctly, the email client software
must be properly set up. Follow these steps to check the settings:
1. Click Start on your computer, and then select Settings.
2. Select Control Panel.
3. Select Internet Options, and then click the Programs tab.
4. Make sure that the email field is set to the correct email client software.
5. Click OK.
6. Start the email client software and make sure it is configured as the default MAPI

information.
After I get messages, either manually or through Auto Sync,
messages disappear from my Inbox
If you have an account that uses Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync®, when you perform
an Auto Sync, the last seven days’ worth of email messages are downloaded from
your mail server to your Inbox. All messages older than seven days are deleted from
your Inbox; they are not, however, deleted on the server.
You can change the setting in VersaMail® preferences to download fewer than seven
days’ worth of messages (in which case, more-recent messages will be deleted from
your Inbox), or to downloaded all messages regardless of the date (in which case all
messages will continue to appear in your Inbox).

maximum of 640 x 480
pixels (0.3 megapixels) in
VGA resolution or 320 x
240 pixels in QVGA
resolution. Videos are
352 x 288 pixels in CIF
resolution or 176 x 144
pixels QCIF in resolution.
Here are some tips for taking good photos with the built-in camera:
• Clean the camera’s lens with a soft, lint-free cloth.
• Take photos in bright lighting conditions. Low-light images may be grainy, due
to the sensitivity of the camera.
• Hold the camera as still as possible. You may want to support your photo-taking
arm against your body or a stationary object (such as a wall).
• Keep the subject of the photos still. Exposure time is longer with lower light levels,
so you may see a blur.
• For best results, verify that you have the brightest light source coming from behind
you, lighting the subject’s face. Avoid taking indoor photos with the subject in front
of a window or light.
• Make sure the subject is at least 18 inches away from the camera to ensure
good focus.
Remember, when you synchronize, your Camera images are stored in the My
Pictures/palmOne Photos folder on your hard drive (see “Viewing photos and videos
on your computer” on page 99).
The Camera preview image looks strange
Some third-party applications overwrite the Treo’s color settings with their own 8-bit
color settings. This can affect the Camera Preview Mode. Delete third-party
applications one by one until the preview image improves.

Third-party applications
Sometimes, third-party applications can cause conflicts on your Treo. Third-party
applications that modify wireless features may require extra troubleshooting. If you
recently installed an application and your Treo seems to be stuck, try the following:
1. Perform a soft reset (see “Performing a soft reset” on page 168).
2. If the problem persists, perform a system reset (see “Performing a system reset” on
page 168).
3. Delete the most recently installed application from your Treo (see “Removing
applications” on page 136).
4. If the problem persists, perform another system reset.
5. If possible, synchronize to backup your most recent info.
6. If you’re unable to perform the steps above or the problem persists, locate your
Backup folder on your computer and rename the folder (e.g. BackupOld):
• Windows: C:\Program Files\palmOne\username
• Mac: Mac HD\Applications\palmOne\Users\username
7. Perform a hard reset (see “Performing a hard reset” on page 169).
8. Synchronize to restore the info in your built-in applications.
9. If the problem is resolved, begin reinstalling your third-party applications one at a
time: double-click a single file in the original Backup folder that you renamed.
10.If the problem recurs, delete the last application you installed and report the
problem to its developer.
Remember, not all thirdparty applications were
written with the Treo
keyboard and 5-way
navigator in mind. You may
encounter strange behavior
or errors in these
applications if you use the
keyboard and 5-way
navigator.
Getting more help
Contact the author or vendor of any third-party software if you require further
assistance.

Error messages
Your Treo is designed to minimize interruptions when a system error occurs. If Treo
encounters a system error, it automatically resets itself and resumes functioning as
normal. If possible, it even turns your phone back on if it was on before the error
occurred.
Sometimes, you might want to know more about an error. Treo uses a special
interface to show error messages in greater detail.
1. Press Phone/Send .
2. Press Center, and then select Dial Pad.
3. Enter # * 377, and then press Phone/Send .
4. Review the screen with details about the conditions that lead up to the most recent
automatic reset.
5. Select OK.
Please note that third-party developers create their own error messages. If you do not
understand an error message, please contact the developer of the application for help.
188 :: Error messages
Making room on your Treo
If you store a large number of records, or install many third-party applications, the
internal memory on your Treo may fill up. Here are some common ways to clear space
on your Treo:
• VersaMail: Emails that have large attachments can quickly consume memory on
your Treo. Delete emails with large attachments. If you have hundreds of messages
with or without attachments, you may wish to delete older messages to make room
(see “Deleting selected messages from the Inbox” on page 69).
• Camera: Large size images take up a lot of memory. Move images to an expansion
card or delete images from your Treo (see “Viewing photos and videos on your
computer” on page 99).
• Messaging: Multimedia content can also consume excessive memory. Move
multimedia content to an expansion card, or delete large files from your Treo (see
“Managing your messages” on page 82).
• Internet: If you set a large Web browser cache, you may want to use the Web
browser’s advanced Memory Management settings to clear all recent pages (see
“Customizing your Web browser settings” on page 91).
• Third-party applications: You can delete infrequently used applications or move
them to an expansion card (see “Copying applications to an expansion card” on
page 140).
Also, remember that your Treo includes an expansion card slot, and that you can store
applications and information on expansion cards. However, you still need free memory
on the Treo itself to run applications from an expansion card.
Making room on your Treo :: 189
Voice quality
Is the other person hearing an echo?
• Try decreasing the volume on your Treo to avoid coupling or feedback on the other
person’s end. This applies to both the speakerphone and to the handset earpiece.
• Position the Treo handset closer to your ear to prevent sound leaking back to the
microphone. Keep your hand away from the microphone hole, which is on the
bottom of your Treo on the right side the phone.
• If you’re using Speakerphone mode with your Treo lying on a flat surface, try
turning the Treo “face down” (screen facing the surface).
Are you hearing your own voice echo?
Ask the other person to turn down their volume or to hold the phone closer to
their ear.
Is your voice too quiet on the other end?
Be sure to hold the bottom of the Treo, or the hands-free microphone, close to
your mouth.
Check the signal strength indicator. If the signal is weak, try to find an area with
better coverage.

FCC
FCC Statement This device has been tested and found to comply with
the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to part 15 of the FCC
Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against
harmful interference 1. A palmOne™ brand body-worn accessory that has
been tested for SAR compliance and is intended for use with this product.
2. An accessory that contains NO metal (snaps, clips, etc) and provides AT
LEAST 1.5 cm of separation between the body user’s and the unit. Do
NOT use the device in a manner such that it is in direct contact with the
body (i.e. on the lap or in a breast pocket). Such use will likely exceed FCC
RF safety exposure limits. See www.fcc.gov/oet/rfsafety/ for more
information on RF exposure safety.
RF Safety Exposure To Radio Frequency Energy (SAR) Radio
transmitting devices radiate Radio Frequency (RF) energy during its
operation. RF energy can be absorbed into the human body and potentially
can cause adverse health effects if excessive levels are absorbed. The unit
of measurement for human exposure to RF energy is “Specific Absorption
Rate” (SAR).
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC), Industrie Canada (IC),
and other agencies around the world have established limits that
incorporate a substantial safety margin designed to assure the safety of all
persons using this equipment.
In order to certify this unit for sale in the US, Canada and Europe this
unit has been tested for RF exposure compliance at a qualified test
laboratory and found to comply with the regulations regarding exposure to
RF Energy.
SAR was measured with the unit transmitting at its maximum certified
RF power. Often, however, during normal operation the unit will transmit
much less than maximum power. Transmit power is controlled
automatically and, in general is reduced as you get closer to a cellular base
station. This reduction in transmit power will result in a lower RF energy
exposure and resulting SAR value.
FCC RF Safety Statement In order to comply with FCC RF exposure
safety guidelines, users MUST use one of the following types of bodyworn accessories.
1. A palmOne™ brand body-worn accessory that has been tested for SAR
compliance and is intended for use with this product.
2. An accessory that contains NO metal (snaps, clips, etc) and provides AT
LEAST 1 cm of separation between the users body and the unit.
Do NOT use the device in a manner such that it is in direct contact with
the body (i.e. on the lap or in a breast pocket). Such use will likely exceed
FCC RF safety exposure limits See www.fcc.gov/oet/rfsafety/ for more

Operational Warnings
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON SAFE AND EFFICIENT OPERATION.
Read this information before using your integrated multi-service portable
radio.
For the safe and efficient operation of your radio, observe these
guidelines:
Potentially Unsafe Areas / Potentially explosive atmospheres Obey all
signs and instructions regarding turning off your smartphone. In particular,
turn off your smartphone when you are in any areas with a potentially
explosive atmosphere, such as fueling areas (gas or petrol stations, below
deck on boats), storage facilities for fuel or chemicals, blasting areas and
areas near electrical blasting caps, and areas where there are chemicals
or particles (such as metal powders, grains, and dust) in the air.
Interference to Medical and Personal Electronic Devices Most but not
all electronic equipment is shielded from RF signals and certain electronic
equipment may not be shielded against the RF signals from your
smartphone.
Pacemakers The Health Industry Manufacturers Association
recommends that a minimum separation of six inches (6") be maintained
between a smartphone and a pacemaker to avoid potential interference
with the pacemaker. These recommendations are consistent with the
194 :: FCC
independent research by the recommendations of Wireless Technology
Research.
Persons with pacemakers should:
•ALWAYS keep the smartphone more than six inches from their
pacemaker when the smartphone is turned ON.
•Not carry the smartphone in a breast pocket.
•Use the ear opposite the pacemaker to minimize the potential for
interference.
•Turn the smartphone OFF immediately if you have any reason to
suspect that interference is taking place.
Audio Safety Some hearing aids may be affected by some digital
smartphones. You may want to consult your doctor in the event of you
experience interference with your hearing aid while using your
smartphone. When using the speakerphone feature, it is recommended
that you place your smartphone at a safe distance from your ear.
Other Medical Devices If you use any other personal medical device,
consult the manufacturer of your device to determine if it is adequately
shielded from external RF energy. Your physician may be able to assist you
in obtaining this information.
Turn your smartphone OFF in health care facilities when any regulations
posted in these areas instruct you to do so. Hospitals or health care
facilities may be using equipment that could be sensitive to external RF
energy.
Interference to Other Electronic Devices RF energy may affect
improperly installed or inadequately shielded electronic operating and
entertainment systems in motor vehicles. Check with the manufacturer or
representative to determine if these systems are adequately shielded from
external RF energy. Also check with the manufacturer of any equipment
that has been added to the vehicle.
Repetitive Motion Injuries When using the keyboard or playing games
on your smartphone, you may experience discomfort in your neck,
shoulders, hands, arms, of other parts of the body. To avoid any injury, such
as tendonitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, or other musculoskeletal disorder,
make sure to take necessary breaks from use, take longer rests (such as
several hours) if discomfort or tiring begins, and see a doctor if discomfort
persists.
Blackouts and Seizures Blinking lights, such as those experienced with
television or playing video games, may cause some people to experience
blackout or seizure, even if never experienced before. In the event a
smartphone user should experience any disorientation, loss of awareness,
convulsion, eye or muscle twitching or other involuntary movements, stop
use immediately and consult a doctor. Individuals with personal or family
history of such events should consult a doctor before using the device. To
limit the possibility of such symptoms, wherever possible every hour take a
minimum of 15 minutes, use in a well lighted area, view the screen from
the farthest distance and avoid exposure to blinking lights if you are tired.
Aircraft While in aircraft, follow all instructions regarding the operation of
your smartphone. Use of your smartphone while on board on aircraft must
be done in accordance in compliance with airline instructions and
regulations.
Vehicles with Air Bags Your smartphone should not be placed in a
position that would affect the operation of air bag deployment or in a
position that, should the air bag inflate, could propel the smartphone. Air
bags will inflate with great force and care should be taken to protect within
a vehicle that has air bags.
Battery Your smartphone includes an internal lithium ion battery. Please
note that use of certain data applications can result in heavy battery use
and may require frequent battery charging. Any disposal of the
smartphone must comply with laws and regulations pertaining to lithium
ion batteries.
Driving Safety Tips Overview
Always obey all laws and regulations on the use of smartphones in your
driving area.
Safety - Your most important call. The Wireless Industry reminds you to
use your smartphone safely when driving.
1. Get to know your smartphone and its features, such as speed dial and
redial.
2. When available, use a hands-free device.
3. Position your smartphone within easy reach.
4. Let the person you are speaking to know you are driving; if necessary,
suspend the call in heavy traffic or hazardous weather conditions.
5. Do not take notes or look up phone numbers while driving.
6. Dial sensibly and assess the traffic; if possible, place calls when you are
not moving or before pulling into traffic.
7. Do not engage in stressful or emotional conversations that may divert
your attention from the road.
8. Dial 9-1-1 to report serious emergencies -it’s free from your
smartphone!
9. Use your smartphone to help others in emergencies.
10. Call roadside assistance or a special non-emergency wireless number
when necessary.
Driving Safety Tips Details
1. Get to know your smartphone and its features such as speed dial and
redial. Carefully read your instruction manual and learn to take
advantage of valuable features most smartphones offer including,
automatic redial and memory dial-most smartphones can store up to 99
numbers in memory dial. Also, work to memorize the smartphone
keypad so you can use the speed dial function without taking your
attention off the road.
2. When available, use a hands-free device. A number of hands-free
smartphone accessories are readily available today. Whether you
choose an installed mounted device for your smartphone or a speaker
phone accessory, take advantage of these devices if available to you.
3. Position your smartphone within easy reach. Make sure you place your
smartphone within easy reach and where you can grab it without
removing your eyes from the road. If you get an incoming call at an
inconvenient time, let your voice mail answer it for you.
4. Suspend conversations during hazardous driving conditions or
situations. Let the person you are speaking to know you are driving; if
necessary, suspend the call in heavy traffic or hazardous weather
conditions. Rain, sleet, snow and ice can be hazardous, but so is heavy
traffic. As a driver, your first responsibility is to pay attention to the road.
5. Do not take notes or look up phone numbers while driving. If you are
reading an address book or business card while driving a car, or writing
a “to do” list, then you are not watching where you are going. It’s
common sense. Don’t get caught in a dangerous situation because you
are reading or writing and not paying attention to the road or nearby
vehicles.
6. Dial sensibly and assess the traffic; if possible, place calls when you are
not moving or before pulling into traffic. Try to plan your calls before you
begin your trip, or attempt to coincide your calls with times you may be
stopped at a stop sign, red light or otherwise stationary. But if you need
to dial while driving, follow this simple tip-dial only a few numbers, check
the road and your mirrors, then continue.
7. Do not engage in stressful or emotional conversations that may be
distracting. Stressful or emotional conversations and driving do not mixthey are distracting and even dangerous when you are behind the
wheel. Make people you are talking with aware you are driving and if
necessary, suspend phone conversations which have the potential to
divert your attention from the road.
8. Use your smartphone to call for help. Your smartphone is one of the
greatest tools you can own to protect yourself and your family in
dangerous situations-with your smartphone at your side, help is only
three numbers away. Dial 9-1-1 in the case of fire, traffic accident, road
FCC :: 195
hazard, or medical emergencies. Remember, 9-1-1is a free call on your
smartphone!
9. Use your smartphone to help others in emergencies. Your smartphone
provides you a perfect opportunity to be a “good Samaritan” in your
community. If you see an auto accident, crime in progress, or other
serious emergency where lives are in danger, call 9-1-1, as you would
want others to do for you.
10. Call roadside assistance or a special wireless non-emergency
assistance number when necessary. Certain situations you encounter
while driving may require attention, but are not urgent enough to merit
a call to 9-1-1. But you can still use your smartphone to lend a hand. If
you see a broken-down vehicle posing no serious hazard, a broken
traffic signal, a minor traffic accident where no one appears injured, or
a vehicle you know to be stolen, call roadside assistance or other
special non-emergency wireless number.
NOTICE FOR CONSUMERS WITH HEARING DISABILITIES
Digital Wireless Phones to be Compatible with Hearing Aids
On July 10, 2003, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC)
modified the exemption for wireless phones under the Hearing Aid
Compatibility Act of 1988. This means that wireless phone manufacturers
and service providers must make digital wireless phones accessible to
individuals who use hearing aids.
For more information, please go to the FCC’s Consumer Alert on
accessibility of digital wireless phones at http://www.fcc.gov/cgb/
consumerfacts/accessiblewireless.html.
Wireless telephones are hand-held phones with built-in antennas, often
called cell, mobile, or PCS phones. These phones are popular with callers
because they can be carried easily from place to place.
Wireless telephones are two-way radios. When you talk into a wireless
telephone, it picks up your voice and converts the sound to radio
frequency energy (or radio waves). The radio waves travel through the air
until they reach a receiver at a nearby base station. The base station then
sends your call through the telephone network until it reaches the person
you are calling.
196 :: FCC
When you receive a call on your wireless telephone, the message
travels through the telephone network until it reaches a base station close
to your wireless phone. Then the base station sends out radio waves that
are detected by a receiver in your telephone, where the signals are
changed back into the sound of a voice.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the Food and
Drug Administration (FDA) each regulate wireless telephones. FCC
ensures that all wireless phones sold in the United States follow safety
guidelines that limit radio frequency (RF) energy. FDA monitors the health
effects of wireless telephones. Each agency has the authority to take
action if a wireless phone produces hazardous levels of RF energy.
FDA derives its authority to regulate wireless telephones from the
Radiation Control provisions of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act
(originally enacted as the Radiation Control for Health and Safety Act of
1968). [http://www.fda.gov/cdrh/comp/eprc.html].
FCC derives its authority to regulate wireless telephones from the
National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) and the
Telecommunications Act of 1996 [http://www.fcc.gov/telecom.html].
