Your phone is equipped with a Li-Ion battery. Li-Ion batteries
should be charged for 5-6 hours initially. Thereafter, you can

The ‘Backlight timeout’ specifies the time the light on the display
will be tuned on to its brightest setting. When off, the screen is
still active and is viewable in certain light conditions. The

the device on to continue receiving calls or performing data
Your phone may be configured to shut off the display after a
period of inactivity to conserve battery power. To turn the screen
on again, press any key. You can adjust the display time-out
using the Power management settings.

Windows Mobile supports downloading and viewing attachments
in e-mail. The ClearVue Application Suite is available on the
Getting Started disk and will allow you to view Word, Excel,
PowerPoint and Adobe PDF files.
Connecting as a ‘Guest’, you will be able to move files between
the PC and device, install and remove applications from the
device and use the pass-through features to access any network or
Internet connections your PC may have available. NOTE: For
more information on ActiveSync, refer to the related chapter in
this user manual, or visit here:
portsetup.aspxTo download the latest version of ActiveSync for
your phone, visit here:http://www.windowsmobile.com.
Transfer only one file at a time or decrease the number of contact
cards (try sending 25 contact cards only at a time). Line up the IR
ports so that they are unobstructed and within close range. Make
sure nothing is between the two IR ports. Adjust the room
lighting, as some types of light interfere with IR connections. Try
moving to a different location or turning off some lights. Do not
try to use infrared beaming in the sunlight.
Sending a photo via Bluetooth is not supported by your phone.
You can beam a photo, video, contacts or any other items to
another mobile device, be it an IR- or Bluetooth-enabled device.
For details on how to beam, refer to the related chapter in this
user manual.
Ensure the infrared data transfer rate is set at 38400 bps or 57600
bps. If the transfer rate is faster, the connection may be too
sensitive. If it’s too slow, you are not utilizing the full capabilities
of the infrared (this is not linked to modem speed, so it is not
necessary to reduce to 9600 bps).
While on the Camera screen, click Menu > Ambience > Adjust
View, and adjust the brightness using the navigation control.
Your phone camera does not have the “red-eye reduction” and
flash options.
From the Camera (Video) screen, click on the menu and select
options. Make sure the Capture mode is set to Video. Make sure
you have sufficient available memory to store the video.
Windows Mobile supports up to eight messaging accounts.
Included in these are any ActiveSync, POP3 or IMAP4, Text

Check to see if the MMS size does not exceed the maximum size
My phone could not receive MMS
of 100kB. Make sure that access is granted to the operator’s
MMS services.
Make sure that you have the correct MMS settings. Refer to the
related chapter in this user manual for a general idea on what
MMS configuration and MMSC settings need to be configured.
Then contact your service provider to find out the specific
settings. If this is a network problem, please notify T-Mobile to
clear it up.
