TTY Functionality for the Hearing-Impaired
NOTE:
The TTY software application is included on the
Companion CD and must be downloaded onto the Pocket PC
before it can be enabled.
This Pocket PC 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 Pocket PC. The
sending TTY 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 iPAQ
Pocket PC, refer to the TTY device manufacturer’s
documentation.

who also has a TTY device connected to their phone.
3. When the phone call is answered, start typing onto the TTY
keyboard.
The letters typed into the machine are turned into electrical
signals that travel over regular telephone lines. When the
signals reach their destination (another TTY), they are

are printed out on paper, or both.
When you are finished typing your phone conversation, the
person on the other end of the line may begin typing their

Using Inbox and Messaging
NOTE:
To access Inbox Help on your device, from the Start
menu, tap Help > Inbox.
Using Inbox
You can receive Internet e-mail and Short Message
Service/Multimedia Message Service (SMS/MMS) messages in
Inbox. Internet e-mail messages are sent by using an address you
receive from your Internet service provider (ISP) or your
employer. SMS/MMS messages are sent and received through
your wireless phone service provider by using a phone number as
the message address.
You can send and receive e-mail by synchronizing your Pocket
PC with your personal computer, or by connecting to a Post
Office Protocol 3 (POP3) or Internet Message Access Protocol 4
(IMAP4) mail server. You need to set up an e-mail account for
each method that you use except for Microsoft ActiveSync,
which is set up by default. The ActiveSync folder on your Pocket
PC stores messages that you send and receive through
synchronization with a personal computer. Account names appear
as folders in the folder list (located on the left, under the
navigation bar) in the Inbox message list.
With synchronization, messages are synchronized between the
device Inbox and the personal computer Inbox by using
ActiveSync and Microsoft Exchange or Microsoft Outlook.
User’s Guide
11–1
Using Inbox and Messaging
When connecting to a POP3 or IMAP4 server, use a modem to
connect to your Internet service provider (ISP), or a modem or
Ethernet card to connect to the local area network that your
e-mail server is connected to. You can also use your phone to
connect by using a cellular line connection.
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 Inbox folder on your
personal computer or the Microsoft Exchange server to
the Inbox folder on your device. By default, you will
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 running Microsoft
Mobile Information Server 2002 or later.
❏
Messages in the Outbox folder on your device are
transferred to Exchange or Outlook and then sent from
those programs.
❏
The messages on the two computers are linked. When
you delete a message on your device, it’s deleted from
your personal computer the next time you synchronize.
❏
Messages in subfolders in other e-mail folders in Outlook
are synchronized only if they have been selected for
synchronization in ActiveSync.
For information on initiating Inbox synchronization or changing
synchronization settings, see ActiveSync Help on your personal
computer.
NOTE: SMS/MMS messages are not received through
synchronization. Instead, they are sent to your Pocket PC via your
service provider.
11–2
User’s Guide
Using Inbox and Messaging
Using Folders
Each e-mail account, MMS account, and SMS account has its
own folder hierarchy with five default folders: Inbox, Outbox,
Deleted Items, Drafts, and Sent Items. The messages you receive
and send through the mail 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 Inbox options you have chosen.
The behavior of the folders you create depends on whether you
are using ActiveSync, MMS, SMS, POP3, or IMAP4.
If you use ActiveSync, e-mail messages in the Inbox folder in
Outlook will automatically be synchronized with your device.
You can select to synchronize additional folders by designating
them for ActiveSync. 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 SMS, messages are stored in the Inbox folder.
If you use POP3 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 mail server. The next time you connect,
the mail server will see that the messages are missing from the
device Inbox and delete them from the server. This prevents you
from 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 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 pocket PC or personal computer. This

Managing the Battery
Your iPAQ Pocket PC is shipped with the rechargeable battery
partially charged. It is recommended that you fully charge the
Pocket PC battery before setting up the unit, and recharge
regularly. Your Pocket PC uses some power to maintain files in
RAM and the clock. While working at your desk, keep the Pocket
PC and AC Adapter connected through the USB Synchronization
Charger cradle. When you travel, it is recommended that you
carry the AC Adapter, Charger Adapter plug, or an optional spare
battery with you.
Ä
CAUTION: Use only an HP approved battery for your iPAQ Pocket
PC. Inserting a battery that does not comply with HP requirements may
cause the Pocket PC to malfunction.
