Synchronizing Your Pocket PC Phone
4.1 Using ActiveSync
4.2 Synchronizing Information
4.3 Synchronizing via Infrared and Bluetooth
4.4 Synchronizing Music, Video, and Pictures
4.1 Using ActiveSync
ActiveSync synchronizes information on your device with information on your PC, such
as Outlook content. ActiveSync can also synchronize over a wireless or cellular network
with Microsoft Exchange Server, if your company or service provider is running Microsoft
Exchange Server with Exchange ActiveSync. When you synchronize, ActiveSync
compares the information on your device with the information on your PC and/or
Exchange Server and updates all locations with the most recent information.
With ActiveSync, you can:
•
Synchronize information, such as Outlook E-mail, Contacts, Calendar, or Tasks
information on your device with your PC, as well as pictures, video, and music.
•
Synchronize Outlook E-mail, Contacts, Calendar appointments, and Tasks on your
device directly with Exchange Server so that you can stay up to date even when your
PC is turned off.
•
Exchange files between your device and your PC without synchronizing.
•
Select which types of information are synchronized and specify how much information
is synchronized. For example, you can choose how many weeks of past Calendar
appointments to synchronize.
Before you can synchronize information with a PC, you must first install ActiveSync on
your PC and create a synchronization relationship between your device and the PC.
You can install ActiveSync from the Getting Started disc that comes with your device.
ActiveSync is already installed on your device.
Once you have installed ActiveSync and set up a synchronization relationship, ActiveSync
on the PC recognizes your device when you connect it, and automatically transfers the
synchronization settings you specified on your device.
You may be able to synchronize your device with Exchange Server through your company
or wireless service provider. If you plan to do so, obtain the name of the Exchange Server,
your user name, password, and domain name from your administrator before starting the
Sync Setup Wizard.
48
| Synchronizing Your Pocket PC Phone
To install and set up ActiveSync
1. Install ActiveSync on your PC, as described on the Getting Started disc. After Setup
completes, the Sync Setup Wizard automatically starts when you connect your device
to the PC.
2. Follow the instructions on the screen to complete the wizard. In the Sync Setup Wizard,
do one or both of the following:
•
Create a synchronization relationship between your PC and the device.
•
Configure an Exchange Server connection to synchronize directly with Exchange
Server.
3. Choose information types to synchronize.
Note
When you finish the wizard, ActiveSync synchronizes your device automatically. Once
synchronization completes, you can disconnect your device from your PC.
4.2 Synchronizing Information
When you connect your device to the PC using a USB cable, an infrared connection, or
a Bluetooth connection, ActiveSync will immediately synchronize. While the device is
connected, ActiveSync synchronizes every time you make a change on either the PC or
the device.
Synchronizing Outlook information
If you have set up a synchronization relationship between your device and the PC,
synchronization keeps Outlook information up-to-date on both your device and PC.
ActiveSync synchronizes a limited amount of information by default to save storage space
on your device. You can change the amount of information synchronized for a given
information type in Settings for the information type.
Synchronizing Your Pocket PC Phone | 49
You can set up your device to synchronize with more than one PC or with a combination
of one or more PCs and Exchange Server. When synchronizing with multiple computers,
the items that you synchronize will appear on all of the computers with which they are
synchronized. For example, if you have set up synchronization with two PCs (PC1 and
PC2), which have different items, and you synchronize Contacts and Calendar on the
device with both computers, the result is as follows:
Location
PC1
All Outlook contacts and calendar appointments that were on PC2
are now also on PC1.
PC2
All Outlook contacts and calendar appointments that were on PC1
are now also on PC2.
Device
Note
New state
All Outlook contacts and calendar appointments from both PC1 and
PC2 are on the device.
Outlook e-mail can be synchronized with only one computer.
To start and stop synchronization
•
To synchronize Outlook information and other local information on the PC, including
media files, connect your device to the PC using Bluetooth, infrared (IR) or a cable or
cradle.
•
If you are synchronizing directly with Exchange Server, you can use this connection to
the PC to “pass though” to the network, or you can synchronize without connecting to
the PC over a cellular or Wi-Fi network.
•
In ActiveSync, tap Sync. To end synchronization before it completes, tap Stop.
To change which information is synchronized
1. In ActiveSync on the device, tap Menu > Options.

5. Tap Sync.
To synchronize with a PC via Bluetooth
1. Follow the instructions in ActiveSync Help on the PC for configuring Bluetooth on your
PC to support ActiveSync.
2. On the device, tap Start > Programs > ActiveSync.
3. Tap Menu > Connect via Bluetooth. Make sure that Bluetooth is turned on at the
device and the PC, and that they are within close range.
4. If this is the first time you have connected to this PC via Bluetooth, you must first
complete the Bluetooth wizard on the device and set up a Bluetooth partnership
between your device and the PC.
For more information about enabling and configuring Bluetooth, see Chapter 6.
Note
52

with Exchange Server. This wizard is started when you connect your mobile device to
your PC after installing ActiveSync on the PC.
| Synchronizing Your Pocket PC Phone
4.4 Synchronizing Music, Video, and Pictures
If you want to carry your music or other digital media with you along while you travel,
ActiveSync works with Windows Media Player to synchronize music, video, and pictures
with your device.
Other than selecting the Media information type in ActiveSync to be synchronized, all
media synchronization settings must be set in Windows Media Player. Before media can
be synchronized, you must do the following:
•
Install Windows Media Player Version 10 on the PC.
•
Connect your device to the PC with a USB cable. If the device is currently connected
using Bluetooth or infrared, you must end that connection before media can be
synchronized.
•
Insert a storage card into your device (32MB or larger is recommended).
•
Set up a sync partnership between the storage card and Windows Media Player.
Change Media synchronization settings
Once you select the Media information type in ActiveSync to be synchronized, any of
your favorite music, video, and picture files in Windows Media Player playlists can be
synchronized. All you have to do is set up synchronization in Windows Media Player for
those media files.
To set up a sync relationship with a storage card
1. Open Windows Media Player.
2. Click the Sync tab.
3. Select the storage card.
4. Click Set up Sync.
For information about using Windows Media Player on the device, see Chapter 8.

5.6 Resetting Your Pocket PC Phone
Occasionally you may need to reset your Pocket PC Phone. A normal (or soft) reset
of your device clears all active program memory and shuts down all active programs.
This can be useful when the device is running slower than normal, or a program is not
performing properly. A soft reset is also necessary after the installation of some programs.
If a soft reset is performed when programs are running, unsaved work will be lost.
You can also perform a hard reset (also known as a full reset). A hard reset should be
performed only if a normal reset does not solve a system problem. After a hard reset, the
device is restored to its default settings—the way it was when you first purchased it and
turned it on. Any programs you installed, data you entered, and settings you customized
on the device will be lost. Only Windows Mobile software and other pre-installed programs
will remain.
To perform a soft reset
•
Use the stylus to lightly press and hold the RESET button on the left side of your
device. The device restarts, and then displays the Today screen.

Download messages
The manner in which you download messages depends the type of account you have:
•
To send and receive e-mail for an Outlook E-mail account, begin synchronization
through ActiveSync. For more information, see “Synchronizing Outlook information” in
Chapter 4.
•
To send and receive e-mail messages for an e-mail account that you have with an
Internet Service Provider (ISP) or that you access using a VPN server connection
(typically a work account), download messages through a remote e-mail server. For
more information, see “To download messages from the server” later in this chapter.
•
Text messages are automatically received when your phone is turned on. When your
phone is turned off (in flight mode), messages are held by your service provider until
the next time your phone is turned on.
To download messages from the server
To send and receive e-mail messages for an e-mail account that you have with an Internet
Service Provider (ISP) or that you access using a VPN server connection (typically a work
account), you first need to connect to the Internet or your corporate network, depending on
the account.
1. Tap Menu > Switch Accounts to select the account you want to use.
2. Tap Menu > Send/Receive. The messages on your device and e-mail server are
synchronized: new messages are downloaded to the device Inbox folder, messages
in the device Outbox folder are sent, and messages that have been deleted from the
server are removed from the device Inbox folder.
Tip
94
If you want to read the entire message, tap Menu > Download Message while in the
message window. If you are in the message list, tap and hold the message, and tap
Menu > Download Message. The message will download the next time you send and
receive e-mail. This will also download message attachments if you selected those
options when you set up the e-mail account.
| Exchanging Messages and Using Outlook
Manage folders
Each Messaging account has its own folder hierarchy with five default Messaging folders:
Inbox, Outbox, Deleted Items, Drafts, and Sent Items. The messages you receive and
send through the account are stored in these folders. You can also create additional
folders within each hierarchy. The Deleted Items folder contains messages that have been
deleted on the device. The behavior of the Deleted Items and Sent Items folders depends
on the Messaging options you have chosen.
If you use an Outlook E-mail account, e-mail messages in the Inbox folder in Outlook
will be synchronized automatically with your device. You can select to synchronize
additional folders by designating them for synchronization. The folders you create and the
messages you move will then be mirrored on the e-mail 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 to that folder. You can then read the messages while you are away from your
PC.
If you use a text message account, messages are stored in the Inbox folder. If you use a
POP3 account and you move e-mail messages to a folder you created, the link is broken
between the messages on the device and their copies on the e-mail server. The next time
you connect, the e-mail server will detect that the messages are missing from the Inbox
folder on the device and will delete them from the e-mail server. This prevents having
duplicate copies of a message, but it also means that you will no longer have access to
messages that you move to folders created from anywhere except the device.
If you use an IMAP4 account, the folders you create and the e-mail messages you move
are mirrored on the e-mail server. Therefore, messages are available to you anytime you
connect to your e-mail server, whether it is from your device or PC. This synchronization
of folders occurs whenever you connect to your e-mail server, create new folders, or
rename/delete folders when connected. You can also set different download options for
each folder.

About licenses and protected files
Some content (such as digital media files downloaded from the Internet, CD tracks, and
videos) have associated licenses that protect them from being unlawfully distributed or
shared. Licenses are created and managed by using digital rights management (DRM),
which is the technology for securing content and managing its access rights. Some
licenses may prevent you from playing files that have been copied to your device. Files
that have licenses associated with them are called “protected files.”
If you want to copy a protected file from your PC to your device, use the desktop Player to
synchronize the file to your device (instead of dragging the file from a folder on your PC to
a folder on your device, for example). This will ensure that the license is copied along with
the protected file. For more information about synchronizing files to your device and other
mobile devices, see desktop Player Help.
Note
You can view the protection status for a file by checking its file properties (tapping Menu
> Properties).
To play items on your device
Use the library to find and play songs, videos, and playlists that are stored on your device
or removable storage card.
1. If you are not on the Library screen, tap Menu > Library.
2. On the Library screen, tap the Library arrow (near the top of the screen), and then tap
the library that you want use (for example, My Device or Storage Card).
3. Tap a category (for example, My Music or My Playlists), tap and hold the item that you
want to play (such as a song, album, or artist name), and then tap Play.
Note
122
To play a file that is stored on your device but is not in a library, on the Library screen, tap
Menu > Open File. Tap and hold the item that you want to play (such as a file or a
folder), and then tap Play.
| Experiencing Multimedia
To play an item on a network
Use the Open URL command to play a song or video that is stored on the Internet or on a
network server.
1. If you are not on the Playback screen, tap OK to close the current screen and display
the Playback screen.
2. Tap Menu > Open URL.
3. Do one of the following:
•
In the URL box, enter a network address.
•
In the History box, tap a URL that you have previously used.
Note
To play an item on a network, you must be connected to a network. For more information
about creating a remote connection between your device and a network, see
Connections Help on your device.
Copy files to your device
Use the latest version of the desktop Player (Windows Media Player 10 or later) to
synchronize digital media files to your device (instead of dragging a file from a folder on
your PC to a folder on your device, for example). Using the desktop Player ensures that
licenses are copied with protected files.
When synchronizing files, always synchronize the files to a storage card that is inserted
into your device. Do not synchronize to a storage card that is inserted into a storage card
reader. In addition, do not synchronize to the internal storage location (RAM) in your
device. For more information about synchronizing files to mobile devices, see desktop
Player Help on the PC.
Note
Audio files copy faster if the desktop Player is configured to automatically set the quality
level for audio files copied to your device. For more information, see desktop Player Help
on the PC.

•
Cell patterns. Patterns applied to cells are removed.
•
Fonts and font sizes. Fonts not supported by your device are mapped to the closest
font available. The original font is listed on your device. When the workbook is opened
in Excel on your PC again, the data is displayed in the original font.
•
Number formats. Numbers formatted using the Microsoft Excel 97 conditional
formatting feature are displayed in Number format.
•
Formulas and functions. If an Excel file contains a function that is not supported
by Excel Mobile, the function is removed, and only the returned value of the function
appears. The following formulas are also converted to values: formulas entered as
an array or containing an array argument, for example, =SUM({1;2;3;4}); formulas
containing external link references or an intersection range reference; and formulas
containing references past row 16384 are replaced with #REF!
•

displayed accurately, but names that refer to other workbooks, arrays, for example,
={1;2;3;4}, array formulas, or intersection ranges are removed from the name list.
If a name is removed from the list, it is left in formulas and functions, causing those
formulas to be resolved as “#NAME?” All hidden names are not hidden.
•
AutoFilter settings. Are removed. However, you can use the AutoFilter command
in Excel Mobile to perform similar functions. If you have an AutoFilter applied to a
worksheet that causes rows to be hidden, the rows remain hidden when the file is
opened in Excel Mobile. Use the Unhide command to display the hidden rows
•
Chart formatting. All charts will be saved the way they are shown in Excel Mobile.
Unsupported chart types are changed to one of these supported types: Column, Bar,
Line, Pie, Scatter, and Area. Background colors, gridlines, data labels, trend lines,
shadows, 3D effects, secondary axes, and logarithmic scales are turned off.

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 01-309 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.
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.
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
Appendix | 135
rating values are then added together. A sum of 5 is considered acceptable for normal
use. A sum of 6 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.

THIS MODEL DEVICE MEETS THE GOVERN-MENT’S REQUIREMENTS FOR
EXPOSURE TO RADIO WAVES.
Your wireless mobile CDMA phone is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed and
manufactured not to exceed the emission limits for exposure to radio frequency (RF)
energy set by the Federal Communications Commission of the U.S. Government. These
limits are part of comprehensive guidelines and establish permitted levels of RF energy for
the general population. The guidelines are based on the safety standards previously set
by both U.S. and international standards bodies:
•
American National Standards Institute (ANSI) IEEE. C95.1-1992.
•
National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurement (NCRP). Report 86. 1986.
•
International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) 1996.
•
Ministry of Health (Canada), Safety Code 6. The standards include a substantial safety
margin designed to assure the safety of all persons, regardless of age and health.
The exposure standard for wireless mobile CDMA phone employs a unit of measurement
known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit set by the FCC is 1.6W/kg*.
For body worn operation, this phone has been tested and meets the FCC RF exposure
guidelines when used with an accessory that contains no metal and that position the
antenna of the CDMA phone a minimum of 1.5cm from the body. The SAR values of this
CDMA phone are 0.987 W/kg (body) and 1.098 W/kg (head). Use of other accessories
may not ensure compliance with the FCC RF exposure guidelines.
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this model device with all reported
SAR levels evaluated as in compliance with the FCC RF exposure guidelines. SAR
information on this model device is on file with the FCC and can be found under the
Display Grant section of http://www.fcc.gov/oet/fccid after searching on FCC ID:
NM8PA10A. Additional information on Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) can be found on
the Cellular Telecommunications & Internet Association (CTIA) web-site as http://www.
devicefacts.net.
* In the U.S. and Canada, the SAR limit for mobile CDMA phone used by the public is
1.6 Watts/kg (W/kg) averaged over one gram of tissue. The standard incorporates a
Appendix | 139
substantial margin of safety to give additional protection for the public and to account for
any variations in usage.
