6DIHW\3UHFDXWLRQV
Please use only Siemens· brand accessories. Any damage caused to the device which is the result of using third-party accessories invalidates any warranty claims. Do not open the device.
If the LCD screen of the device is damaged (the glass is broken for example),
avoid contact between any liquid which might escape and your skin, mucous
membrane (eye, mouth) or foodstuffs and do not breathe in any gas which
might escape. Wash off any affected areas of your body or clothing with copious quantities of soap and water.
Only use the stylus supplied for touching the screen. Other instruments
such as a ballpoint pen for example, can damage the screen.
This unit has a built-in lithium battery which should be used only as instructed
and changed only by Siemens· service personnel.
Use only the supplied AC/DC adapter.
When the adapter is plugged into the power socket it must be free from obstructions. The adapter must not be covered during operation. Do not place
the adapter on any surface which can be damaged by heat.
The SIMpad is disconnected from the power source by unplugging the
AC/DC adapter. Make sure that the AC power socket is freely accessible.
Medical equipment such as pacemakers or hearing aids may be affected by
the radio connection to the base station.
Do not look into the infrared interface when it is activated.
Avoid direct sunlight! The SIMpad is designed to operate at temperatures
between 23 and 131 degrees Fahrenheit (-5 and 55 °C). Switch SIMpad only
on at temperatures between 41 and 104 degrees Fahrenheit (5 and 40 °C).
Do not use the device in damp conditions. Do not subject it to water or rain.
If you wish to operate the device after bringing it in from a cold environment,
condensation can occur. Wait until the device temperature has been equalized and it is absolutely dry before putting it into operation.
If you are in a country where there is a legal obligation for collection and disposal by a specialized dealer, dispose of the device and its battery there.
Even if you are not in such a country, dispose of the device and its battery
separately from other domestic waste.

The connection via the infrared interface only functions if the cell phone’s
infrared interface is switched on. You will find the relevant function in your
cell phone settings. The transmission speed of the connection to the Internet depends on the cell phone’s modem and the connection between
the cell phone and the Internet service provider. The connection to the cell
phone does not support any other type of data exchange typical to cell
phones (e. g. SMS).
Infrared interface (diode)
6HULDODQG,QIUDUHG,QWHUIDFHIRU&RQQHFWLRQWRDFHOOSKRQH
Connection to a cell phone via the infrared interface is possible. The cell
phone must have an integrated modem. This lets you use the cell phone
to set up a connection to an Internet Service Provider.
For the infrared connection, the cell phone must also have an infrared interface. The infrared diodes of SIMpad and the printer must have "line of
sight contact" and may be not more that 0.5 m from each other.

Serial interface (RS232)
6HULDO,QWHUIDFHDQG3&&DUG6ORWIRU0RGHP&RQQHFWLRQ
You can set up your Internet connection with SIMpad over a modem
which is directly connected to the telephone socket.
You can use a Hayes-compatible modem (analog or ISDN) with a serial interface. For this you need a crossed (9 pin) V.24 cable for the connection
from the SIMpad to the modem.
Examples of compatible modems are ZyXEL· Omninet 56K Plus and U.S.
Robotics· 56K (the latter for Internet connections only). Suitable ISDN
modems are ZyXEL· omni.net D and U.S. Robotics· COURIER (the latter
for Internet connections only).
6HWWLQJXSWKH,QWHUQHW&RQQHFWLRQ
If you want to use a cell phone with modem over the serial interface, you
must use a null-modem adaptor between the PC connection cable supplied and the corresponding cell phone data cable. The adaptor is available
as an accessory from your specialized dealer.

When the SIMpad is AC-powered, there is no load on the built-in battery.
If it is not at full capacity, it is charged up automatically.
If the battery is fully discharged, FKDUJLQJWDNHVDERXWKRXUV. You
can see that the device is charging when the orange LED on the right side
of the screen is lit. After approximately 1.5 hours about 70% of charge capacity is reached.
As soon as you use SIMpad without a connection to AC power it draws
its power from the battery. When the battery is fully charged you can use
SIMpad IRUXSWRKRXUVZLWKRXWFRQQHFWLQJLWWR$&SRZHU (depending on communication with other devices and on the screen brightness
set). You should therefore minimize the screen brightness as far as possible (see page 80 for adjusting brightness).
When the charge capacity of the battery drops below 20% an appropriate
warning is displayed on the screen. When the charge capacity drops below 10% you should recharge the device.
When SIMpad is switched off and not connected to AC power, your data
is retained for around GD\V with a fully charged battery.
Consider backing up your important data (see page 79) or transferring it to a PC (see page 26) if you are not going to use SIMpad

Your SIMpad works as a stand-alone device. However, to get the most out
of your SIMpad, you may want to connect to your desktop PC or notebook.
Microsoft· ActiveSync· is used to exchange data between your PC and
the SIMpad. This program is available on the CD-ROM supplied in the box.
You can use Microsoft ActiveSync to synchronize your Outlook applications (Inbox, Calendar and Contacts) with the PC. Similarly, you can transfer the complete database from SIMpad to a connected PC (backup function) or restore a data backup version from the PC to the SIMpad (Restore
function). You can also use ActiveSync to install additional software on
SIMpad (see page 66).

1. Verify that the serial PC connection cable is connected to your
SIMpad.
2. Check with Start “ Programs “ Communication “ ActiveSync if in
the drop down list you have selected the right connection method.
3. If you continue to have difficulty synchronizing, in the Connection Settings dialog of Microsoft ActiveSync window on your desktop PC (see

%DVLF,QIRUPDWLRQ
To send and receive e-Mails you need your own e-Mail account as well as
access to the Internet. In general you receive this account when you are
given Internet access by your provider.
An e-Mail account consists of an e-Mail address and various other data.
An e-Mail address is an address in the form of <RXU1DPH#SURYLGHU–the
@ character is generally referred to as “at“.
The e-Mail account also includes an access ID and a password to ensure
that no one else can use your account. In addition the data of an e-Mail
account includes the Internet addresses of the e-Mail servers for incoming and outgoing e-Mails.

SIMpad has an infrared interface to allow it to communicate with a printer.
The printer used must also have this interface. For printers without an Infrared interface (IrDA) there are commercially available IrDA adapters
which can be connected to the parallel interface of the printer.
An example of a compatible printer with an infrared interface is the
HP Deskjet· 350.
For the infrared connection to be established, SIMpad and the printer
must be switched on. The infrared diodes of SIMpad and the printer must
have “line-of sight contact“ and may be not more that 0.5 m from each
other.
SIMpad supports the SIR (Serial Infrared) standard with a transmission
speed of 115 Kbit/s.
You can print Web pages, e-Mails or documents that you have created
with Pocket Word or InkWriter. To do this, in the menubar for the relevant

Personal data cards (smartcards) are becoming increasingly important,

For this type of authenticated data connections you need an appropriate

the data connection asks you to do so. When inserting the card, ensure
that the chip is facing XSZDUGV.

to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following
measures:
●
Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
●
Increase the separation between equipment and the receiver.
●
Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to
which the receiver is connected.
●
Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
The manufacturer is not responsible for any radio or television interference
caused by unauthorized modifications of this equipment or the substitution or attachment of connecting cables and equipment other than those
specified by the manufacturer. The correction of interferences caused by
such unauthorized modification, substitution or attachment will be the responsibility of the user.
The use of shielded I/O cables is required when connecting this equipment to any and all optional peripheral or host devices. Failure to do so
may violate FCC rules.
