Charging the Battery
CAUTION
Ensure that you follow the guidelines for battery safety described in Battery Safety Guidelines on page 8-2.
Charging the Main Battery and Memory Backup Battery
Before using the MC75 for the first time, charge the main battery until the amber Charging/Battery Status LED
remains lit (see Table 1-2 on page 1-7 for charge status indications). To charge the MC75, use a cable or a cradle
with the appropriate power supply. For information about the accessories available for the MC75, see Chapter 2,
Accessories.
The MC75 is equipped with a memory backup battery which automatically charges from the fully-charged main
battery. When using the MC75 for the first time, the backup battery requires approximately 36 hours to fully charge.
This is also true any time the backup battery is discharged, which occurs when the main battery is removed for
several hours. The backup battery retains RAM data in memory for at least 15 minutes (at room temperature) when
the MC75's main battery is removed. When the MC75 reaches a very low battery state, the combination of main
battery and backup battery retains RAM data in memory for at least 48 hours.
To charge the main battery, use either a charging cable or a cradle. For cable and cradle setup and charging
procedures see Chapter 2, Accessories.
• Single Slot USB/Serial Cradle
• Four Slot Ethernet Cradle
• Four Slot Charge Only Cradle
• Vehicle Cradle.
To charge the main battery:
1.

Bandwidth Considerations when Daisychaining
Each cradle added to the daisychain impacts the bandwidth provided to the inserted MC75s, particularly when the
MC75s attempt to send and receive at data rates that exceed the bandwidth provided to the chain (typically 100
Mbps). If an MC75 in a daisychained cradle does not use its bandwidth, that bandwidth is allocated to other
inserted MC75s.
Table 2-2 shows available bandwidth, based on 100 Mpbs, for the maximum number of daisychained cradles, with
each attempting transmission at the maximum data rate.

ROAD SAFETY - Do not use the MC75 while driving. Park the vehicle first. Always ensure the MC75 is
fully inserted into the cradle. Do not place it on the seat or where it can break loose in a collision or
sudden stop. Lack of proper insertion may result in property damage or personal injury. Zebra is not
responsible for any loss resulting from the use of the products while driving. Remember: Safety comes
first.
Mounting the Cradle
CAUTION
1.
Select a mounting location for the cradle. It should be flat, and must provide adequate support for the cradle.
NOTE
2.
Only mount the Vehicle Cradle in a vertical position with the release level at the top or in a horizontal position
with the MC75 display facing up. Never mount the vehicle cradle on the side or upside down or on a wall that
can be subject to impact or collision of greater than 40Gs, in accordance with SAE J1455 Section 4.10.3.5
If using the GPS functionality of the MC75 mobile computer, ensure that the vehicle cradle is positioned so that
the MC75 has a clear unobstructed view of the sky.
Prepare the mounting surface to accept four #8-32 studs, using the mounting template below. Drill four holes
with a #6 drill bit.

4.
Fasten it using four #8 washers and four #8-32 self-locking nuts.
Do not install a VCD7000 Vehicle Cradle on or near an air bag cover plate or within an aerobic zone. Also, do
not install it in a location that affects vehicle safety or driveability.
CAUTION
Power Connection
Please read all of the following instructions before beginning.
WARNING!
A properly trained technician must perform the power connection. Improper connection can damage
your vehicle, cradle or MC75. Refer to the vehicle’s Owner’s Manual for instructions for removing
power.
To connect the cradle to power:
CAUTION
1.
When setting up connection for this cradle, only use the power input cable provided with this cradle.
Locate the vehicle power source.
NOTE
The ideal location for connecting the vehicle cradle power input cable would be an accessory output in your
vehicle’s fuse panel. The vehicle cradle should be added to a circuit with a maximum load capacity for the
cradle and the original circuit. Refer to the vehicle’s Owner’s Manual for identification of the circuit.
If a fused output is not available, the vehicle cradle must be installed with the provided in-line fuse holder and
UL Listed 5A fuse. The fuse protects the vehicle from an electrical short on the power line to the cradle.
To use the cradle to charge the MC75 and spare battery when the vehicle’s ignition is off, connect the cradle to
unswitched power. This will affect the vehicle’s battery charge.
2 - 16 MC75 Integrator Guide
2.
Route the power input cable from the cradle’s power port to the connection point for the vehicle’s power
source.
CAUTION
3.
The means of routing and securing the power input cable from the cradle through to the vehicle power
source is extremely important. Hazards associated with improper wiring can be severe. To avoid
unintentional contact between the wire and any sharp edges, provide the cable with proper bushings and
clamping where it passes through openings. If the wire is subjected to sharp surfaces and excess engine
vibration, the wiring harness insulation can wear away, causing a short between the bare wire and chassis.
This can start a fire.
To avoid any mishaps, all wiring should be routed away from moving parts, high temperature areas and any
contaminants.
When using the supplied in-line fuse holder (which must be used if not connecting to vehicle’s fuse panel):
a.
Ensure the fuse holder contains a 5A UL Listed slow-blow fuse.
b.
Splice the fuse holder to the end of the red V+ wire, as shown above. Make the distance from the fuse to
the power connection point as short as possible.

Prepare the cable termination.
a.
Red wire: connect to a +12/24 V vehicle power source.
b.
Black wire and Shield wire: connect to vehicle ground wire or chassis ground.
NOTE
5.
How the cable terminates depends on the vehicle. If the vehicle has a power output connector, then you must
attach a mating connector to the end of the power cable. You may be able to connect to a fuse panel with a
simple blade terminal or commercially available connector. Consult the vehicle Owner’s Manual for information
on how to access the power supply in the vehicle.
Connect the power input cable into the power port on the cradle.

Introduction
To communicate with various host devices, install Microsoft ActiveSync (version 4.5 or higher) on the host
computer. Use ActiveSync to synchronize information on the mobile computer with information on the host
computer. Changes made on the mobile computer or host computer appear in both places after synchronization.
NOTE
When a mobile computer with Windows Mobile 6 is connected to a host computer and an ActiveSync
connection is made, the WLAN radio (if applicable) is disabled. This is a Microsoft security feature to prevent
connection to two networks at the same time.
ActiveSync software:
• Allows working with mobile computer-compatible host applications on the host computer. ActiveSync
replicates data from the mobile computer so the host application can view, enter, and modify data on the
mobile computer.
• Synchronizes files between the mobile computer and host computer, converting the files to the correct
format.
• Backs up the data stored on the mobile computer. Synchronization is a one-step procedure that ensures the
data is always safe and up-to-date.
• Copies (rather than synchronizes) files between the mobile computer and host computer.
• Controls when synchronization occurs by selecting a synchronization mode, e.g., set to synchronize
continually while the mobile computer is connected to the host computer, or set to only synchronize on
command.
• Selects the types of information to synchronize and control how much data is synchronized.

Chapter 4 Application Deployment for
Mobile 6
Introduction
This chapter describes new features in Windows Mobile 6 including new security features, how to package
applications, and procedures for deploying applications onto the MC75.
Security
The MC75 implement a set of security policies that determine whether an application is allowed to run and, if
allowed, with what level of trust. To develop an application, you must know the security configuration of the device,
and how to sign an application with the appropriate certificate to allow the application to run (and to run with the
needed level of trust).
Application Security
Application security controls the applications that can run on the MC75.
• Trusted - All applications must be digitally signed by a certificate on the MC75.
• Prompted - User is prompted to allow unsigned applications to run.
• Open - All applications run.
Developers can include their own certificates and provision the device to “trusted.”
Digital Signatures
Digital signatures provide a way to authenticate the author of EXEs, DLLs, and packages. Digitally signed
applications give users confidence that an application comes from where they think it comes from. For example, if
an end-user downloads an update package from the internet that is digitally signed with Zebra's software
certificate, they are assured that the package is authentic and that it was created by Zebra. By enforcing the use of
digital signatures, users can also prevent malicious applications from executing on the MC75. For example, users
can provision the MC75 to only execute “trusted” applications (digitally signed).
Zebra ships all Windows Mobile 6 based products in an “open” state, which means all signed and unsigned
applications should work. However, customers can still reconfigure their MC75s to operate in the “trusted” mode.
4-2
MC75 Integrator Guide
This means that only applications signed with a certificate from the Privileged Execution Trust Certificate Store can
run.
To support the broadest number of deployments, third-party software developers should perform the following
when releasing software for a Windows Mobile 6 devices:
• Sign all their EXEs & DLLs with their private key
• Provide the corresponding public certificate to end-users so that it can be installed into Privileged Execution
Trust Certificate Store.
If the software is installed via a .CAB file, developer should also:
• Sign the .CAB file with their private key
• Provide the corresponding public certificate to end-users so that it can be installed into SPC Certificate Store.
Locking Down a Mobile Computer
Like most configuration options in Windows Mobile 6, security settings are set via XML provisioning. For example,
to enforce the “trusted” model and only allow applications signed with a privileged certificate to run, use the
following provisioning document:
<wap-provisioningdoc>
<characteristic type=”SecurityPolicy”>
<!-- Disallow unsigned apps -->
<parm name= “4102” value= “0”/>
<!-- No Prompt -->
<parm name= “4122” value= “1”/>
</characteristic>
</wap-provisioningdoc>
For more information on various security options, refer to the Security Policy Settings topic in the latest Windows
Mobile documentation.
Application Deployment for Mobile 5.0
4-3
Installing Certificates
Use XML provisioning to query and delete certificates from certificate stores. To add a new certificate the Privileged
Execution Trust Certificate Store, use the following sample provisioning document:
<wap-provisioningdoc>
<characteristic type= “CertificateStore”>
<characteristic type= “Privileged Execution Trust Authorities”>
<characteristic type= “657141E12FA45786F6A57CA6464032D4B3A55475”>
<parm name= “EncodedCertificate” value= “
This is sample text. This is sample text. This is sample text. This is sample text.
This is sample text. This is sample text. This is sample text. This is sample text.
This is sample text. This is sample text. This is sample text. This is sample text. = “/>
</characteristic>
</characteristic>
</characteristic>
</wap-provisioningdoc>
To create your own provisioning document with real certificate information:
1.
Obtain a certificate from a security provider such as VeriSign.
2.
Double-click on the certificate file (.CER) to open it.
3.
Click on the Details tab and locate the Thumbprint field.
4.
Copy the contents of the Thumbprint field and replace the value in the XML example above.
5.
Click the Copy to File… button.
6.
Click Next to start the Certificate Export Wizard.
7.
Select Base-64 encoded X.509 (.CER) and then click Next.
8.
Set the File Name to CertOutput.xml and click Next.
9.
Click Finish to export the certificate.
10. Open the exported file, CertOutput.xml, in a text editor (i.e., NotePad).
11. Copy the contents of the file (excluding the first line, last line, and CR/LF) and replace the value of the
“EncodedCertificate” parameter in the xml example above.
Device Management Security
You can control access to certain device settings and security levels, such as installing applications and changing
security settings. Refer to the Windows Mobile Version 6 Help file for information on device management security.
Remote API Security
The Remote API (RAPI) enables applications that run on a desktop to perform actions on a remote device. RAPI
provides the ability to manipulate the file system on the remote device, including the creation and deletion of files
and directories. By default, Zebra ships with RAPI in the restricted mode. Certain tools, such as RAPIConfig, may
4-4
MC75 Integrator Guide
not work properly. Refer to the Windows Mobile Version 6 Help file for finding information on Remote API security
policies.
Packaging
NOTE
Applications compiled for Windows Mobile 6 are not backward-compatible with previous versions.
Packaging combines an application's executable files into a single file, called a package. This makes it easier to
deploy and install an application to the MC75. Package new applications and updates, such as new DLL files, as
CAB files, then deploy them to Mobile 6 devices. Refer to the Microsoft Windows Mobile 6 Help file for information
on CAB files.
Deployment
To install applications onto the MC75, developers package the application and all required files into a CAB file, then
load the file onto the MC75 using one of the following options:
• Microsoft ActiveSync 4.1 or higher
• Storage Card
• MSP 3.X
• AirBEAM
• Image Update (for updating the operating system).
Refer to the Microsoft Windows Mobile 6 Help file for information on CAB files.
Installation Using ActiveSync
To install an application package:
• Connect the MC75 to a host computer using ActiveSync. See Chapter 3, ActiveSync for more information.
• Locate the package file on the host computer.
• In ActiveSync on the host computer, open Explorer for the MC75.
• Copy the CAB file from the host computer to the \temp directory on the MC75.
• On the MC75, navigate to the \temp directory.
• Tap on the application CAB file. The application installs on the MC75.
Installation Using Storage Card
To install an application package:
• Copy the package CAB file to a storage card using an appropriate storage card reader.
• Install the storage card into the MC75. See Micro Secure Digital (microSD) Card on page 1-10 for more
information.
• On the MC75, open File Explorer.
Application Deployment for Mobile 5.0
4-5
• Open the Storage Card directory.
• Tap the package CAB file. The application installs on the MC75.
Installation Using AirBEAM
The AirBEAM Smart Client provides backward-compatible legacy AirBEAM functionality and backward-compatible
legacy MSP 2.x Level 2 Agent functionality.
Refer to the AirBEAM Smart Windows CE Client Product Reference Guide, p/n 72-63060-01, for instructions for
AirBEAM Smart client.
MSP 3.X
The MSP 3 Client Software is a set of software components that come pre-installed on the MC75. The MSP 3
Client software consists of the following components:
The RD Client provides support for MSP 3 Staging functionality, provides support for the MSP 3 Legacy Staging
process, and provides support for backward-compatible legacy MSP 2.x Legacy Staging functionality.
The MSP 3 Agent provides MSP 3 Provisioning functionality and Control functionality when used with MSP 3.2
Control Edition.
Refer to the Mobility Services Platform 3.2 User’s Guide, p/n 72E-100158-06, for instructions for using the Rapid
Deployment and MSP3 Agent clients.
Image Update
Windows Mobile 6 contains an Image Update feature that updates all operating system components. All updates
are distributed as update packages. Update packages can contain either partial or complete updates for the
operating system. Zebra distributes the update packages on the Support Central Web Site,
http://www.zebra.com/support.
To update an operating system component, copy the update package to the MC75 using one of a variety of
transports, including ActiveSync, an microSD memory card, or MSP. Then, initiate the update using one of the
following methods:
• Double-tap the package file in File Explorer (similar to extracting a CAB file)
• Perform a special boot sequence that initiates the update.
NOTE
The MC75 must have at least 5 MB of free space to perform an OS update.
To initiate an update:
1.
Go to the Support Central web site, http://www.zebra.com/support.
2.
Download the appropriate update package.
3.
Copy the update package to either the \temp directory on the MC75, or to a storage card.
4.
Connect the MC75 to AC power. See Chapter 2, Accessories.
5.
Simultaneously press the Power button and the 1 and 9 keys.
6.
Immediately, as soon as the device starts to boot and before the splash screen is visible, press and hold the
right scan button.
4-6
MC75 Integrator Guide
7.
The Update Loader application first looks for a file on a storage card. If it does not find it, it looks in the \temp
directory.
When it finds the appropriate file, it loads the package onto the MC75. A progress bar displays until the update
completes.
8.
The MC75 re-boots.
9.
The calibration screen appears.
NOTE
When initiating an update via a boot sequence, the update loader looks for updates first on the root of an
installed microSD card and then in the \temp folder on the MC75’s persistent storage volume. A response file,
pkgs.lst, indicates which files to update. In most cases, Zebra provides this pkgs.lst file with the update and
you should only modify it when updating a splash screen partition. See Creating a Splash Screen for more
information.
Creating a Splash Screen
Use a bitmap file to create a customized splash screens for the MC75. Use Image Update with a bitmap file, rather
than a package file, to update the splash screen.
To create a custom splash screen:
1.
Create a .bmp file using a graphic program with the following specifications:
• Size: 592 x 480.
• Colors: 16 bits per pixel (65536 colors) for color displays.
2.
Modify the bitmap file and save.
To load the splash screen on the MC75:
1.
Create a text file named pkgs.lst which contains the name of the bmp file. For example, mysplash.bmp.
2.
Copy the bmp file and the pkgs.lst file to one of the following:
• SD card root directory
• MC75’s \temp directory
• MC75’s \Windows directory.
3.
If using an SD card, insert the SD card into the MC75.
4.
Perform a cold boot.
5.
Press the trigger or side scan button for 5 seconds while booting to invoke the Update Loader and install the
splash screen.
XML Provisioning
To configure the settings on an MC75, use XML provisioning. To install an XML provisioning file on the MC75,
create a Cabinet Provisioning File (CPF). A CPF file is similar to a CAB file and contains just one file: _setup.xml.
Like a CAB file, the CPF extension is associated with WCELoad.EXE. Opening a CPF extracts the XML code and
uses it to provision and configure the MC75. The user receives an e-mail notification indicating success or failure.
XML provisioning provides the ability to configure various features of the MC75 (i.e., registry and file system).
However, some settings require security privileges. To change registry settings via a CPF file, you must have
Application Deployment for Mobile 5.0
4-7
certain privileges (roles). Some registry keys require you to simply be an Authenticated User, while other registry
keys require you to be a Manager. Refer to the Microsoft Windows Mobile 6 Help file, Metabase Settings for
Registry Configuration Service Provider section, for the default role settings in Windows Mobile 6.
For those registry settings that require the Manager role, the CPF file must be signed with a privileged certificate
installed on the device. Refer to the Microsoft Windows Mobile 6 Help file and the Windows Mobile 6 SDK for
instructions and sample test certificates.
Creating an XML Provisioning File
To create a .cpf file:
1.
Create a valid provisioning XML file named _setup.xml using an XML editor or the tools supplied with Visual
Studio 2005. (For example, use the SampleReg.xml sample created in the RegMerge section and rename it
_setup.xml.) Ensure the file contains the required parameters for the operation. Refer to the Microsoft Windows
Mobile 6 Help file for information.
2.
In the Windows Mobile 6 tools directory on the desktop computer (typically \Program Files\Windows CE
Tools\wce500\Windows Mobile 6 Pocket PC SDK\Tools), run the Makecab.exe utility, using the following
syntax to create a .cpf file from the _setup.xml file:
MakeCab.exe /D COMPRESS=OFF _setup.xml myOutCpf
NOTE
COMPRESS=OFF is required for backward compatibility with Pocket PC.
3.
Optionally, use the Authenticode tools to sign the .cpf file.
4.
Tap the filename to install.
5.
Certain applications and settings require a cold boot to take affect. In these cases, cold boot the MC75. Refer
to the Windows Mobile Version 6 Help file for more information.
XML Provisioning vs. RegMerge and Copy File
Prior to Windows Mobile 6, Zebra used two drivers (RegMerge and CopyFiles) to update the registry and to copy
files during a cold boot. With Mobile 6, Zebra recommends using XML provisioning instead. RegMerge and
CopyFiles are supported for backward compatibility but Zebra may eliminate support in the future. The following
sections provide examples of how RegMerge and CopyFiles were used, and how to perform the same function
using XML provisioning.
RegMerge
RegMerge.dll is a built-in driver that allows updating the registry during a clean boot. RegMerge runs very early in
the boot process and looks for registry files (.reg files) in certain Flash File System folders (i.e., \Application) during
a clean boot. It then merges the registry changes into the system registry located in RAM.
The following example uses RegMerge to set a registry key:
SampleReg.reg
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Hardware\DeviceMap\Backlight]
“BacklightIntensity”=dword:00000036
The following example uses XML provisioning to perform the same task:
4-8
MC75 Integrator Guide
SampleReg.xml
<wap-provisioningdoc>
<characteristic type= “Registry”>
<characteristic type= “HKLM\Hardware\DeviceMap\Backlight”>
<parm name= “BacklightIntensity” value= “54” datatype= “integer” />
</characteristic>
</characteristic>
</wap-provisioningdoc>
CopyFiles
CopyFiles copies files from one folder to another on a clean boot. During a clean boot CopyFiles looks for files with
a .CPY extension in the root of the Application FFS partition. These files are text files containing the source and
destination for the desired files to copy, separated by “>”.
The following example uses CopyFiles to copy a file from the \Application folder to the \Windows folder:
SampleCpy.cpy
\Application\example.txt > \Windows\example.txt
The following example uses XML provisioning to perform the same task:
SampleCpy.xml
<wap-provisioningdoc>
<characteristic type= “FileOperation”>
<characteristic type= “\Windows” translation= “filesystem”>
<characteristic type= “MakeDir”/>
<characteristic type= “example.txt” translation= “fileystem”>
<characteristic type= “Copy”>
<parm name= “Source” value= “\Application\example.txt” translation= “filesystem”/>
</characteristic>
</characteristic>
</characteristic>
</characteristic>
</wap-provisioningdoc>
Storage
Mobile 6 contains three types of file storage:
• Random Access Memory (RAM)
• Persistent Storage
• Application folder.
Application Deployment for Mobile 5.0
4-9
Random Access Memory
Executing programs use RAM to store data. Data stored in RAM is lost upon a warm boot. RAM also included a
volatile file storage area called Cache Disk.
Volatile File Storage (Cache Disk)
Windows Mobile 6 memory architecture uses persistent storage for all files, registry settings, and database objects
to ensure data is retained even after a power failure. Persistent storage is implemented using Flash memory
technology which is generally slower than volatile RAM memory. In certain situations the speed of the operation is
more important than the integrity of the data. For these situations, Zebra has provided a small volatile File Storage
volume, accessed as the Cache Disk folder. Disk operations to the Cache Disk folder are much faster than to any
of the persistent storage volumes, but data is lost across warm boots and power interruptions. Note that a backup
battery powers RAM memory, including the Cache Disk, when you remove the main battery for a short period of
time.
The MC75 uses the Cache Disk for temporary data that can be restored from other sources, for example, for
temporarily “caching” HTML web pages by a browser or generating formatted files to send to a printer. Both
situations benefit from the increased speed of the cache disk, but you can restore the data if needed.
DO NOT use the Cache Disk as a method to improve application performance. Analyze applications that perform
slower in persistent storage to optimize disk access. Common areas for optimization include minimizing the
number of reads and writes to a file, removing unneeded debug logging, and minimizing file flushing or closing
files.
Persistent Storage
Windows Mobile 6 protects all data and applications from power-related loss. Because Windows Mobile 6 mounts
the entire file system and registry in persistent storage (rather than using RAM), MC75 devices provide a reliable
storage platform even in the absence of battery power.
Persistent storage provides application developers with a reliable storage system available through the standard
file system and registry APIs. Persistent storage is optimized for large reads and writes; therefore, applications
reading and writing data in large chunks tend to outperform those applications reading and writing small blocks of
data. Data in persistent storage is lost upon a clean boot.
Persistent storage contains all the directories under the root directory except for Application, Cache Disk, and
Storage Card (if a storage card is installed). Persistent storage is approximately 60 MB (formatted).
Application Folder
The Application folder is a super-persistent storage that is persistent even after a clean boot. Accessing data in the
Application folder is slower than accessing persistent storage. The Application folder is used for deployment and
device-unique data. For example, network profiles can be stored in the Application folder so that connection to the
network is available after a cold boot. The Application folder is approximately 20 MB (formatted).
Symbol Configuration Manager
Symbol Configuration Manager (SCM) is a utility that runs on the development computer and is used to create
configuration files. These files, when deployed to an MC75, set configuration parameters for that device. The
configurable options for a MC75 are defined in an XML file that is available on the Support Central
(http://www.zebra.com/support) for that MC75. SCM is also available on Support Central.
SCM eliminates the potential user errors that occur when manually editing registry settings.
4 - 10 MC75 Integrator Guide
File Types
SCM uses three types of files:
• Symbol Configuration Template (.SCT) files are XML files that define the configurable parameters for a
device.
• Registry Configuration Service Provider XML files for device provisioning.
• CAB Provisioning Format (.CPF) file which is a .CAB archive that contains the provisioning XML. This file is
downloaded to the MC75 and merged upon a cold boot.
User Interface
SCM's user interface consists of a tree control on the left side of the window which displays all the configuration
categories, and a data grid table on the right which displays all the configurable controls for the selected category.
Figure 4-1 shows the main window for a device’s .sct file.

Chapter 5 MC7506/96 - GSM Configuration
Introduction
This chapter explains how to verify MC7506 and MC7596 service on an Global System for Mobile communications
(GSM) wireless network and establish settings.
GSM networks deliver mobile voice and data services, such as Short Message Service (SMS)/Text Messaging,
with full roaming capabilities across the world. High-speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) enabled networks
offer Internet-based content and packet-based data services. This enables services such as internet browsing,
e-mail on the move, powerful visual communications, multimedia messages, and location-based services.
When using the MC75 as a phone, services can include speed dialing, call tracking, voice mail, call forwarding,
conference calling, and caller ID, depending on the type of service.
Also use the integrated phone as a modem to connect the MC75 to an ISP or work network. The GSM enabled
MC75 can connect to the Internet or work network using Cellular Line, or using the modem specified by the mobile
phone service provider.
NOTE
Before using an MC75 on a wireless network, first select a provider, establish a voice and data-enabled service
plan, and configure the MC75 (where applicable). Refer to the MC75 User Guide for information on how to use
the phone and services.

Chapter 6 MC7508/98 - CDMA Configuration
Introduction
This chapter explains how to activate an MC7508 or MC7598 on a Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) wireless
network and establish settings.
CDMA is a form of wireless multiplexing in which data (e.g., Short Message Service) can be sent over multiple
frequencies simultaneously, optimizing the use of available bandwidth. In an CDMA system data is broken into
packets, each of which are given a unique identifier, so that they can be sent out over multiple frequencies and
then re-built in the correct order by the receiver.
When using the MC75 as a phone, services can include speed dialing, call tracking, voice mail, call forwarding,
conference calling and caller ID, depending on the type of service.
The integrated phone in the MC75 can also be used as a modem to connect the MC75 to an ISP or work network.
The MC75 can connect to the Internet or work network using Cellular Line, or using the modem specified by the
mobile phone service provider.
NOTE
Before the MC75 can be used on a CDMA wireless network, a provider must be selected, a voice and
data-enabled service plan must be established and the MC75 must be properly configured (where applicable).
Refer to the MC75 User Guide for information on how to use the phone and services.

CDMA Phone Activation
CDMA phone service is available from a number of service providers including Sprint®, Verizon Wireless®, Alltel,
Bell Mobility and Telus. In addition to service activation for each provider, various settings may be required for the
MC75 to operate as a phone. There can be different Activation Wizards depending upon the carrier. Verizon
Wireless and Sprint use an automatic activation processes. All other carriers use the manual activation process.
Verizon Wireless Activation
The Activation Wizard allows automatic activation. To activate the MC75 using the automated service, the MC75
attempts to call the network on a special number that automatically downloads the phone number and identification
codes from the network.
Verizon Wireless automatically downloads the provisioning data. This process is invisible to the user and occurs
once, after account activation, during the first data connection attempt.
NOTE
After an MC75 is provisioned for Verizon Wireless service, it is strongly recommended that no other service
provider loads are downloaded to the MC75 and no changes are made to any of the provisioning information.

Chapter 8 Maintenance and Troubleshooting
Introduction
This chapter includes instructions on cleaning and storing the MC75, and provides troubleshooting solutions for
potential problems during MC75 operation.
Maintaining the MC75
For trouble-free service, observe the following tips when using the MC75:
• Do not scratch the screen of the MC75. When working with the MC75, use the supplied stylus or
plastic-tipped pens intended for use with a touch-sensitive screen. Never use an actual pen or pencil or other
sharp object on the surface of the MC75 screen.
Zebra recommends using a screen protector, p/n KT-67525-01R.
• The touch-sensitive screen of the MC75 is glass. Do not drop the MC75 or subject it to strong impact.
• Protect the MC75 from temperature extremes. Do not leave it on the dashboard of a car on a hot day, and
keep it away from heat sources.
• Do not store or use the MC75 in any location that is dusty, damp, or wet.
• Use a soft lens cloth to clean the MC75. If the surface of the MC75 screen becomes soiled, clean it with a soft
cloth moistened with a diluted window-cleaning solution.
• Periodically replace the rechargeable battery to ensure maximum battery life and product performance.
Battery life depends on individual usage patterns.
8-2
