Using Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync

If your company is using Microsoft Exchange Server 2003, you can synchronize Calendar, Contacts, and E-mail with your HP iPAQ wirelessly without connecting to a desktop cradle. Exchange ActiveSync in Microsoft

Exchange Server 2003 allows the HP iPAQ to access corporate information on a server running Exchange server software. It allows

ActiveSync-enabled HP iPAQs 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 Mobilebased devices. Desktop pass-through allows your cradled HP iPAQ 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.

After Exchange ActiveSync creates a connection and a partnership between the HP iPAQ and the desktop computer, desktop pass-through is enabled by default, even if the desktop is locked or protected with a password or PIN.

Exchange ActiveSync enables you to synchronize the following items in your Exchange Server 2003 mailbox over the air:

Calendar

Contacts list

E-mail messages

Using ActiveSync

3–3

You can receive update notifications by means of the Always-up-to-date

(AUTD) feature in Exchange Server 2003. Up-to-date notifications generated by Exchange Server 2003 initiate Exchange ActiveSync synchronization between your HP iPAQ and your Exchange mailbox.

NOTE: To set up Exchange ActiveSync, you will first need to contact your corporate IT team for the name of the corporate server with Exchange

Server 2003 installed.

To set up Exchange ActiveSync synchronization after you have the server information:

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 Data Connections.”

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 defaults to GPRS.

SIM Card

A Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) 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 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.

NOTE: tSee your local telephone directory for emergency numbers used in your area.

Emergency numbers can be dialed without a SIM card being inserted in the HP iPAQ and there is no charge for emergency calls.

Activating Your Phone Service

Before you are able to use the phone feature on your HP iPAQ, you need to subscribe with a mobile phone service provider.

NOTE: If you purchased your HP iPAQ from a mobile service provider, phone service may be activated at time of purchase or the mobile service provider may include activation instructions.

If you have purchased a prepaid SIM card to use with your HP iPAQ or, if your service provider issued you a SIM card with a preset PIN, the following information is not applicable.

After you select a service provider, you must place a phone call to the service provider to activate your mobile phone service. Your carrier may require the following information to activate your card:

• SIM Card Serial Number (printed on the box label or on the back of the SIM card)

• IMEI Number (printed on the system label under the removable battery)

Your mobile phone service representative will give you your wireless phone number and walk you through setting up your service.

Phone Features

The following features are supported on your HP iPAQ; however, these features must be activated by your mobile phone service provider:

• Call Forwarding

• CSD—Circuit Switched Data

• GPRS—General Packet Radio Service

• International Dialing

• International Roaming

• Internet access

• Text Message/MMS—Text Message Service/Multimedia

Message Service

• Voicemail

• VPN—Virtual Private network

You can obtain additional information on these services from your mobile phone service provider.

Your PIN

After your SIM card is activated, it may be configured with a PIN (Personal

Identification Number) to prevent unauthorized use of your mobile phone.

NOTE: Emergency phone calls do not require entering a PIN.

Using the Phone Features

5–4

You can disable your PIN; however, for security reasons, it is recommended that you keep it enabled. While enabled, you must enter your PIN every time you turn on your phone features.

CAUTION: After three consecutive, incorrect PINs are entered, the SIM card locks to prevent further use. If the letters

PUK

(PIN Unblocking Key) display on your HP iPAQ screen, you have locked your SIM card and must enter your PIN Unblocking Key on the screen to unlock it. If you did not receive a PIN Unblocking Key with your SIM card, you must contact your service provider to unlock it.

Using International Roaming

When you are planning on traveling abroad or to foreign countries, you will be able to use your HP iPAQ to call home or anywhere by first setting it up for international roaming.

At least 24 hours before you go away on your trip, you need to do the following:

NOTE: Depending on your mobile phone service provider, it may not be necessary to complete all of the following items to set up your phone for international roaming.

Using the Phone Features

5–17

Contact your mobile phone service provider for the following information and services:

• Have them activate your phone for International Roaming.

Depending on your mobile phone service provider, there may be an additional charge for this feature.

NOTE: Once your HP iPAQ has been activated, it is set up permanently for you to use abroad.

Check with your mobile phone service provider to make sure your

HP iPAQ will work in the country you are going to and find out what kind of coverage you will receive.

Find out if you will need to purchase another SIM card with the correct international format on it, or if your mobile phone service provider may be able to reformat the SIM card you already have into the correct format.

Since your HP iPAQ has GPRS and EDGE capability, you may want to ask your mobile phone service provider for an up-to-date list of foreign operators that enable you to use data functionality abroad and added costs for the service plan. Once you know which network to connect to in the country you are traveling through, you can connect to that network manually using the following instructions.

Changing Network Settings

You can change Network Settings by either of the following methods:

From the

Start

menu, tap

Settings > Phone > Network

tab.

From the Phone keypad, tap

Tools > Options > Network

tab.

The GSM/GPRS connection your HP iPAQ is currently using will be listed at the top of the screen.

You can view available networks, determine the order in which your phone accesses another network if the current one is unavailable, and specify whether you want to change networks manually or automatically. The current network remains active until you change it, lose your signal, or change your SIM card.

Manually Selecting a Network

NOTE: HP highly recommends leaving the HP iPAQ set to its automatic network settings.

At times, you may want to manually select a different wireless network to use, instead of your HP iPAQ automatically doing this for you. For example, if you want to connect to a specific network for a specific purpose, and you are authorized to use this specific network, then complete the following instructions:

Configuring Your HP iPAQ for Your SIM Card

When the SIM card connects to your service provider’s network, it may be updated by your service provider to include new network parameters for faster connection. The GSM/GPRS Settings Manager automatically updates your HP iPAQ files with the new network parameters on your

SIM card.

At times, you may need to manually edit the network settings or create your own personal network settings. To do that, you will need to modify the GSM/GPRS Settings.

The GSM/GPRS Settings Manager has the following features:

Automatically detects the carrier and sets up the GPRS, MMS, and

TTY Functionality for the Hearing-Impaired

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

Using the Phone Features

5–23

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.

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.

7 Making Data Connections

The HP iPAQ hw6500 Mobile Messenger series offers you a comprehensive set of wireless capabilities to keep you connected in or out of the office. With Global System for Mobile Communications/General

Packet Radio Service/Enhanced Data Rates for Global Evolution (GSM/

GPRS/EDGE), and Bluetooth integrated into a single HP iPAQ, you have broad coverage offering high speed access to the Internet, and to business and personal information.

NOTE: EDGE is a global standard for wireless wide-area data communication being rapidly deployed by GSM carriers worldwide.

Actual download speeds may vary. Coverage is subject to transmission limitations and terrain, system capacity and other limitations. Not all features and service options are available in all areas.

Use the following options to get connected:

Use the GPRS/EDGE technology integrated on your HP iPAQ to connect to a Virtual Private Network (VPN) or to remotely connect to your mobile Internet Service Provider (ISP).

Make a wireless GSM/GPRS/EDGE connection to place a phone call or send or receive e-mail, text message, or Multimedia

Message Service (MMS) messages.

NOTE: EDGE technology delivers faster data speed than GPRS to mobile devices. It allows users to connect to the Internet and send and receive data, including digital images, Web pages and photographs faster than with a GSM/GPRS network. If a network provider does not have EDGE technology deployed, the HP iPAQ defaults to GPRS data transfer rates.

Because EDGE is integrated into GPRS technology when it is enabled by your service provider, there is no visible means of identifying when it is being used. You will only receive faster data transmission.

Transfer information between Bluetooth enabled devices.

Transfer information between two Infrared (IrDA) enabled ports.

NOTE: Use of dial-up and wireless Internet, e-mail, corporate networks, and other wireless communications, such as Bluetooth-enabled devices, may require separately purchased additional hardware and other compatible equipment, in addition to a separately purchased service contract. Check with your service provider for availability and coverage in your area. Not all Web content may be available. Some Web content may require installation of additional software. GPRS may not be available in all networks. GPRS data transmission speeds may vary based upon network capabilities and other conditions. The establishment and continuation of a GPRS connection depends on network availability, provider support, and signal strength.

Making Data Connections

7–1

For more information on this subject, refer to the Help file on your HP iPAQ by tapping

Start > Help > Connections.

Impact of Data Connection When a

Phone Call is Received

Class B mobile phones may be attached to both GPRS and GSM services, using one service at a time. Class B enables making/receiving a voice call, or sending/receiving a text message during a GPRS connection.

During voice calls or text messaging, GPRS services are suspended and then resumed automatically after the call or text message session has ended.

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 features on your account to activate it and must have EDGE technology on the network for this capability to be used on the HP iPAQ. If EDGE is not enabled, the HP iPAQ defaults to GPRS.

Creating a GPRS/EDGE Connection

A GPRS/EDGE connection provides high-speed data transfer and is typically used for Web browsing and to send and receive small bursts of data such as e-mail and MMS messages.

To create a GPRS/EDGE connection, you must subscribe with a GSM service provider that supports GPRS/EDGE. After you configure your

GPRS/EDGE connection and connect to the GPRS network, you may be required to authenticate GPRS.

NOTE: Your service provider must enable the GPRS/EDGE features on your account.

Manually Configuring your GPRS connection on your HP iPAQ

NOTE: Use this manual process only if the built-in automatic detection is not working and you are unable to make a connection.

When taking pictures of scenes with many fine details and many colors (for example, a farmer’s market), use the

Best

compression setting.

When taking pictures of subjects where the background has bright lights, try to frame the subject so that the bright lights do not appear in the picture.

When taking a picture, do not move the camera until after the first and second shutter sounds are heard.

NOTE: To access Messaging Help on your HP iPAQ, from the

Start

menu, tap

Help > Messaging.

Understanding Messaging

When using Messaging, you can send and receive messages in three ways: Internet e-mail, text messages, and Multimedia Message Service

(MMS) messages. These accounts are already created in your HP iPAQ and are described more later in this chapter. The different types of messages can be:

Internet e-mail ---- messages sent and received by using the e-mail address you received from your Internet Service Provider (ISP) or your employer.

Text messages ---- messages sent and received through your mobile phone service provider by using a phone number as the message address.

MMS messages --- messages sent and received through your mobile phone service provider by using a phone number or an e-mail address as the message address.

Additional accounts can be set up on your HP iPAQ such as a Post Office

Protocol 3 (POP3) or an Internet Message Access Protocol 4 (IMAP4) account. POP3 and IMAP4 are protocols used to retrieve e-mail from a mail server. The newer version, IMAP4, is similar to POP3 but supports some additional features. For example, with IMAP4, you can search through your e-mail messages using keywords while the messages reside on the mail server. You then can choose which messages to download to your HP iPAQ.

Using Folders

Each e-mail account, text message account, and MMS account has its own folder hierarchy with five default folders: Inbox, Outbox, Deleted Items,

Drafts, and Sent Items. The messages you send and receive through the mail account are stored in these folders. Also, you can create additional folders within each hierarchy. The Deleted Items folder contains messages that have been deleted on the HP iPAQ. The behavior of the Deleted

Items and Sent Items folders depends on the Messaging options you have chosen.

The behavior of the folders you create depends on whether you are using

ActiveSync, MMS, text messages, or a POP3 or IMAP4 mail server.

If you use ActiveSync, e-mail messages in the Outlook Inbox folder will automatically be synchronized with your HP iPAQ. You can select to synchronize additional folders by designating them for ActiveSync; however, when you synchronize wirelessly over the air using Exchange

ActiveSync, only the Calendar, Contacts, and E-mail folders will

Using Messaging

12–1

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 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 folder synchronization occurs whenever you connect to your mail server, create new folders, or rename/delete folders when connected.

For all accounts except MMS, you can access folder options by tapping

Tools > Manage Folders

on your HP iPAQ.

Synchronizing Inbox

After selecting Inbox for synchronization in ActiveSync, e-mail messages are synchronized as part of the general synchronization process.

During synchronization:

• Messages are copied from the folders on your personal computer or the Microsoft Exchange server to the Outlook e-mail folders on your HP iPAQ. By default, you receive messages from the last three days only, the first 100 lines of each new message, and file attachments of less than 100 KB in size.

NOTE: You can only synchronize information directly with an

Exchange Server if your company is using Microsoft Mobile

Information Server 2002 or later.

NOTE: You can synchronize information over the air if your company is using Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 or later.

• Messages in the Outbox folder on your HP iPAQ are transferred to Exchange or Outlook and then sent from those programs.

• Messages on the two computers are linked. When you delete a message on your HP iPAQ, it’s deleted from your personal computer the next time you synchronize.

• Messages in Outlook e-mail subfolders (or other e-mail folders) are synchronized only if they have been selected for synchronization in ActiveSync.

NOTE: If you have numerous e-mails and contacts on your personal computer, you may have to synchronize your HP iPAQ with your PC several times before all of the information downloads to your HP iPAQ.

Using Messaging

12–2

For information on initiating Inbox synchronization or changing synchronization settings, see ActiveSync Help on your personal computer.

NOTE: MMS and text messages are not received through synchronization. Instead, they are sent to your HP iPAQ via your mobile phone service provider.

Meeting Requests

If you receive your e-mail messages through ActiveSync, you will automatically receive meeting requests. If you connect directly to an e-mail server, the server must be running Microsoft Exchange Server 5.5 or 2000 for you to receive meeting requests. If you are running Microsoft

Exchange Server 2000, you will automatically receive meeting requests in your Inbox.

To receive meeting requests on Microsoft Exchange Server 5.5:

• Ask your system administrator to activate Rich Text Format and

TNEF support for your account. If TNEF is enabled, you will not receive messages that are included in other messages as attachments, and you will not be able to tell if a message has an attachment until you get the full copy. In addition, download time may be longer.

13 Managing the Battery

Your HP iPAQ is shipped with the rechargeable battery partially charged.

It is recommended that you fully charge the HP iPAQ 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.

CAUTION: Use only an HP approved battery for your HP iPAQ. Inserting a battery that does not comply with HP requirements might cause the unit to malfunction and will void the HP iPAQ limited warranty.

The HP iPAQ has a small internal backup battery that (when charged) allows you to change the main battery without losing RAM data (userinstalled programs and data) as long as it is replaced within 15 minutes.

Use the backup battery to “bridge” the time you need to re-install a new standard or extended battery or to find your serial number. You can check the charge level of the back up battery by referring to

”Maximizing Battery

Life and Checking Battery Charge Levels”

in this chapter. The internal battery can only be removed by a qualified HP Technical

Support Representative.

BATTERY SAVING TIP: To ensure you always have battery power available, you can purchase an extra Standard Battery or Extended

Battery. These batteries can be charged using the HP iPAQ. To purchase an extra battery, refer to the HP Web site at www.hp.com/go/ ipaqaccessories .
