Preface

Welcome

Congratulations on purchasing this Windows® Powered Pocket PC. Due to the size and capabilities of the device, you can keep your most important business and personal information up-to-date and close at hand. Microsoft

ActiveSync

 increases the power of your Pocket PC by allowing you to synchronize the information on your desktop or Microsoft Exchange Server with your Pocket

PC. Picture yourself in the following situations:

While walking with a colleague, your cell phone rings and your boss asks if you two are free this afternoon for an emergency meeting. While your colleague fumbles through his paper organizer, you press a button on your

Pocket PC and instantly see a list of today’s appointments and meetings.

You are quickly able to tell the boss your available times. For more information on scheduling appointments and meetings, see Chapter 4.

You are meeting your friends tonight for dinner and a movie. You download the latest movie information from the Internet to your desktop computer and then synchronize it with your Pocket PC. At dinner, you pull out your

Pocket PC and review your movie options with your friends. For more information on downloading Web pages to your device, see section 6.7.

A Calendar reminder alerts you that it is time to catch the bus. You grab your Pocket PC and catch the bus just in time. Because ActiveSync keeps the information on your Pocket PC up-to-date, you leisurely review your task list, make notes about the new books and CDs you want to buy and read and respond to e-mail messages. When you get back to the office,

ActiveSync transfers any task changes you made, your notes and your e-mail message responses to your desktop computer. For more information on ActiveSync, see section 5.1.

v

You Pocket PC incorporates wireless network capability. You can connect to the network without physical cables any time as long as you are within the range of a wireless network. For information on wireless network, see section 6.2.

Your Pocket PC incorporates Bluetooth capability, allowing you to conveniently exchange information between Bluetooth devices. For information on Bluetooth, see section 6.5.

Managing Your Pocket PC

This chapter tells you how to effectively manage power, memory, settings, data and programs of your Pocket PC.

You must maintain a continuous power supply to your Pocket PC to retain your data, including any information, programs or settings that you added to your

Pocket PC.

A fully charged battery should provide power for up to 12 hours of use. The operating time of a fully charged battery depends on how you are using the

Pocket PC. Some functions, such as using multimedia or operating a SD/MMC or CompactFlash card, may consume the battery power considerably.

Low Battery Signals and Actions

CAUTION:

Though your Pocket PC can retain data for 72 hours after its battery runs completely out of power, you must constantly charge the battery of your Pocket PC. This can prevent data loss or damage to the battery caused by the battery’s being kept in a discharged state for too long.

When you recharge the battery upon a warning of low power, you should charge for at least 30 minutes to one hour. If you unplug the AC adapter soon, you may not have sufficient battery power for your operation.

You can monitor the battery power by tapping

Settings System

tab

Power

icon. The remaining power is displayed on a status bar in the Power control panel.

When the battery is low, your Pocket PC will pop up a warning message. You should save your data and recharge the battery immediately upon a warning of low power; otherwise your Pocket PC will turn off automatically. You need to

31

connect the Pocket PC to external AC power for charging before you can use it again. If the battery completely runs out of power, you will lose any information, programs or settings that you added.

Smart Power Management

Supplied with your Pocket PC is a tool called “Mitac Utility.” This utility helps you effectively manage power to prolong the battery’s operating time.

Tap

Settings System

tab

Mitac Utility

. The tool consists of five tabs:

System

,

Smart Battery

,

Wireless

,

This page shows the program information. It does not contain any adjustable items.

Smart Battery

Select a mode from the following four options.

Auto Pocket PC will automatically adjust the CPU speed according to the need of the current operation.

Low Performance The CPU always runs at a lower speed, thus extending the battery life.

High Performance The CPU always runs at normal speed, thus providing standard battery life.

Superior Performance The CPU always runs at a high speed, thus shortening the battery life.

Wireless

Select a mode from the following three options.

Active Mode The wireless network module built in your Pocket PC is on at all times after it has been initialized.

Power Saving Mode The wireless network module will automatically enter normal power saving mode whenever appropriate.

32

Power-Saving Tips

Follow these suggestions to maximize the battery’s operating time, particularly when you are relying solely on the battery power for extended time periods.

Suspend frequently.

By default, the screen backlight will automatically turn off and the Pocket

PC will also turn off when it has been idle for a period of time. You can shorten the length of the idle time using

Settings System

tab

Power Advanced

tab to set up.

Press the power button to turn off your Pocket PC when it is not in use, even for a short time. You can also manually turn off the backlight by pressing and holding the power button.

Turn off functions not needed or adjust settings.

Lower the volume.

Do not enable sounds or light flashing except for the most necessary notifications. (Tap

Settings Personal

tab

Sounds &

Notifications

icon to set up.)

Remove the SD/MMC or CompactFlash card, if installed, from the slot if you are not using it.

Avoid power-consuming situations such as:

When connecting your Pocket PC to your desktop computer (Your

Pocket PC will not auto-suspend while it is connected.)

When using a modem or other peripheral

When monitoring infrared transfers (Although you can set your Pocket

PC to constantly monitor the IR port for files sent from other devices, doing so will quickly drain your battery.)

When playing sound or music

When recording.

34

Storage and Program Memory

Files, settings and data that you add to your Pocket PC are stored in RAM

(Random Access Memory). The RAM on your Pocket PC is shared between storage memory and program memory.

Storage memory

Storage memory is used to store the data you create and additional programs you install.

Program memory

Program memory is used to run programs on your Pocket PC.

Your Pocket PC automatically manages the allocation between storage and program memory. However, in some situations, such as when the memory is running out, your Pocket PC may not be able to automatically adjust the allocation. (For information on solving memory problems, see section 7.4.)

Additional Memory

Your Pocket PC has an internal memory called

My Flash Disk

, with approximately 32MB capacity. You can use this space to store data or programs.

In addition, you can buy storage cards for backup, storage, archives or to transfer large files to other devices. Depending on the type of the storage card inserted, you can find the

MMC Disk

,

SD Disk

or

CF Disk

folder, listed under

My

Device

in the File Explorer application.

Data stored on a storage card will be saved, even if your Pocket PC loses power.

Connecting Directly to an E-mail Server

You can send and receive email messages by connecting to a POP3 or IMAP4 e-mail server if you can connect to your ISP or local area network. (For information on connection, see sections 6.2 to 6.4.)

Setting up an Email Service

You can use multiple email services to receive your messages. For each email service you intend to use, first set up and name the email service. If you use the same service to connect to different mailboxes, set up and name each mailbox connection.

In Inbox, tap

Acccouts New Account

. Follow the directions in the New Service

Wizard. For an explanation of a screen, tap at the upper right corner of the screen.

NOTE: You cannot add a new service while connected. Tap Accounts Disconnect to disconnect.

When you connect to the email server, new messages are downloaded to the

Inbox folder on your Pocket PC, messages in the Pocket PC Outbox folder are sent messages that have been deleted on the email server are removed from the

Inbox folder on your Pocket PC.

Messages that you receive directly from an email server are linked to your email server rather than your desktop computer. When you delete a message on your

Pocket PC, it is also deleted from the email server the next time you connect based on the settings you selected in ActiveSync.

You can work online or offline. When working online, you read and respond to messages while connected to the email server. Messages are sent as soon as you tap

Send

, which saves space on your Pocket PC.

When working offline, once you have downloaded new message headers or partial messages, you can disconnect from the email server and then decide which messages to download completely. The next time you connect, Inbox downloads the complete messages you have marked for retrieval and sends the messages you have composed.

56

Using the Message List

Messages you receive are displayed in the message list. By default, the most recently received messages are displayed first in the list.

Select the service and folder you want to display.

Select the sort order for messages.

Tap to open a message.

Tap and hold to display a pop-up menu of actions.

Tap to connect and to send and receive e-mail.

Tap to connect to the selected service.

When you receive a message, tap it to open it. Unread messages are displayed in bold.

57

Tap to return to the message list.

Tap to delete this message.

Tap to view the previous or next message.

Tap to reply to or forward this message.

When you connect to your email server or synchronize with your desktop computer or server, by default, you will receive messages from the last three days only, the first 100 lines of each new message file attachments of less than

100KB in size. The original messages remain on the server or your desktop computer.

You can mark the messages that you want to retrieve in full during your next synchronization or email server connection. In the message list, tap and hold the message you want to retrieve. On the pop-up menu, tap

Mark for Download

. The icons in the Inbox message list give you visual indications of message status.

You specify your downloading preferences when you set up the service or select your synchronization options. You can change them at any time.

59

Send

when you have finished the message. If you are working offline, the message is moved to the Outbox folder and is sent the next time you connect.

The message is placed in the Outbox folder on your Pocket PC and will be delivered in one of two ways:

The message is transferred to the Outbox folder in Exchange or Outlook on your desktop computer and sent the next time you synchronize.

The message is transferred to your email server the next time you connect.

In Inbox, make sure the appropriate service is selected on the

Accounts

menu. Then tap the

Connect

button (or

Connect

on the

Accounts

menu).

Managing Email Messages and Folders

Each e-mail service 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 service 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 your

Pocket PC. The behaviour of the Deleted and Sent Items folders depends on the options you have chosen.

Folder Behavior

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

ActiveSync, POP3 or IMAP4.

If you use ActiveSync, email messages in the Inbox folder in Outlook are automatically synchronized with your Pocket PC. You can select to synchronize additional folders by designating them for ActiveSync. The folders you create and the messages you move are 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 desktop computer.

If you use POP3 and you move email messages to a folder you created, the link is broken between the messages on the Pocket PC and their copies on the mail server. The next time you connect, the mail server sees that the

60

messages are missing from the Pocket PC Inbox and deletes them from the server. This prevents you from having duplicate copies of a message, but it also means that you no longer have access to messages that you move to folders created from anywhere except the Pocket PC.

If you use IMAP4, the folders you create and the email 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 desktop computer. This synchronization of folders occurs whenever you connect to your mail server, create new folders or rename/delete folders when connected.

For all services except ActiveSync, you can access folder options by tapping

Tools Manage Folders

in the message list.

More Programs

In addition to Microsoft Pocket Outlook, several programs are built into your

Pocket PC. They include Microsoft ActiveSync, Microsoft Pocket Word,

Microsoft Pocket Excel, Windows Media Player, Microsoft Reader, Pictures and additional programs. This chapter tells you how to use these programs.

NOTE: ActiveSync is already installed on your Pocket PC. You need to install ActiveSync on your desktop computer. (For information on installing ActiveSync, see section 1.4.)

When you have established the connection between your Pocket PC and your desktop computer, you can synchronize the information between the two with

ActiveSync. Synchronization compares the data on the two sides and updates both computers with the most recent information. For example, you can:

Keep your Pocket Outlook Contacts, Calendar and Tasks databases up-to-date by synchronizing your Pocket PC with Microsoft Outlook data on your desktop computer.

Synchronize email messages in your Pocket PC Inbox with email messages in Microsoft Outlook on your desktop computer.

Synchronize Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel files between your

Pocket PC and desktop computer. Your files are automatically converted to the correct format.

With ActiveSync, you can also:

Back up and restore your Pocket PC data.

Copy (rather than synchronize) files between your Pocket PC and desktop computer.

Add and remove programs on your Pocket PC.

63

Pass through your desktop computer to a network or the Internet to perform tasks such as downloading IMAP4 e-mail messages or browsing the

Internet on your Pocket PC.

Ways of Connecting to Your Desktop Computer

CAUTION: Do not shut down or restart your desktop computer while your Pocket PC is connected. Turn off your Pocket PC or disconnect the cable before you shut down your desktop computer.

You can connect your Pocket PC to a desktop computer in several ways:

Use the USB cradle or ActiveSync cable (available as an optional accessory) (See step 8 of section 1.4 for information.)

Use the IR port in place of using a cable. IR ports can be found on many notebook computers; however, on a desktop computer, you may need to install and configure an IR port. To install the port, follow the manufacturer’s instructions. (For complete instructions on connecting to your desktop computer by infrared, refer to ActiveSync Help on your desktop computer.)

Use a network or dial-up connection. You can synchronize while connected to your desktop computer by a dial-up connection or over a LAN (Local

Area Network).

Synchronizing Data

Once you have created a partnership and completed the first synchronization, you can initiate synchronization from your Pocket PC.

To Synchronize from Your Pocket PC

1. Connect your Pocket PC to your desktop computer.

2. On your Pocket PC, tap

ActiveSync

.

3. Tap to begin synchronization.

64

View connection status.

Tap to connect and synchronize.

Tap to stop synchronization.

View synchronization status.

Tap to synchronize via IR or change synchronization settings.

By default, ActiveSync does not automatically synchronize all types of information. Use ActiveSync options to turn synchronization on and off for specific information types. You can:

Control when synchronization occurs by selecting a synchronization mode.

For example, you can synchronize continually while the Pocket PC is connected or only when you choose the synchronize command.

Select which information types are synchronized and control how much data is synchronized. For example, you can choose how many weeks of past appointments you want synchronized.

For information on setting ActiveSync options and using ActiveSync on your desktop computer, see ActiveSync Help on the desktop computer. For information on using ActiveSync on your Pocket PC, see ActiveSync Help on the Pocket PC.

To Synchronize from a Remote Location

You can also synchronize by dialing in to your desktop computer or connecting over a network. This can be useful if you need to synchronize files or PIM information while traveling. Before you leave, you must configure both your

Pocket PC and your desktop computer.

On your Pocket PC, you need to create a partnership between your Pocket PC and the desktop computer using one of the direct connection methods (USB

65

cable or infrared connection). You must also configure a connection on your

Pocket PC as described in sections 6.2 to 6.4.

On your desktop computer, you need to ensure the following:

The desktop computer or network server is configured to allow your Pocket

PC to connect. Depending on the version of Windows running on the desktop computer, you may need to install and configure Remote Access

Services or Dial-Up Networking on the desktop computer.

ActiveSync is configured to allow a network connection. For more information, see ActiveSync Help on your desktop computer.

If you are using a modem on your desktop computer, turn the modem on before you leave.

Leave your desktop computer on and be sure you logged on under the same user name that you used when you created the partnership.

Your PIM program and email program (Microsoft Outlook or Microsoft

Exchange) should be running correctly.

Getting Connected

To take full advantage of your Pocket PC, you will want to get connected. This chapter tells you how you can get your Pocket PC connected to the Internet or corporate network through a variety of ways including wireless network, modem, network card and Bluetooth. It also describes Internet Explorer for Web browsing.

Your Pocket PC has two groups of connection settings: “My ISP” and “My

Work Network.” My ISP settings are used to connect to the Internet, and My

Work Network settings can be used to connect to any private network, such as a corporate network you use at work.

After the connections, you can browse the Internet or intranet, send and receive e-mail and instant messages, and synchronize information using ActiveSync.
