that do not contain any metal.
Use of non-original manufacturer-approved accessories may violate
your local RF exposure guidelines and should be avoided.
INTERFERENCE WITH MEDICAL EQUIPMENT FUNCTIONS
This product may cause medical equipment to malfunction. The use of this
device is forbidden in most hospitals and medical clinics.
If you use any other personal medical device, consult the manufacturer
of your device to determine if they are adequately shielded from external
RF energy. Your physician may be able to assist you in obtaining this
information.
Turn your phone OFF in health care facilities when any regulations posted
in these areas instruct you to do so. Hospitals or health care facilities may be
using equipment that could be sensitive to external RF energy.
HEARING AIDS
Some digital wireless phones may interfere with some hearing aids. In the
event of such interference, you may want to consult your service provider,
or call the customer service line to discuss alternatives.
NONIONIZING RADIATION
Your device has an internal antenna. This product should be operated in
its normal-use position to ensure the radiative performance and safety
of the interference. As with other mobile radio transmitting equipment,
users are advised that for satisfactory operation of the equipment and
for the safety of personnel, it is recommended that no part of the human
body be allowed to come too close to the antenna during operation of the
equipment.
Use only the supplied integral antenna. Use of unauthorized or modified
antennas may impair call quality and damage the phone, causing loss of
performance and SAR levels exceeding the recommended limits as well
as result in non-compliance with local regulatory requirements in your
country.
10
To assure optimal phone performance and ensure human exposure to RF
energy is within the guidelines set forth in the relevant standards, always
use your device only in its normal-use position. Do not touch or hold the
antenna area unnecessarily when placing or receiving a phone call. Contact

connection, you can use this connection to the computer to “pass through”
to the network and download Outlook e-mails and other information to your
device.
8.2 Working With Company E-mails
Your device gives you instant access to your company e-mails and lets
you manage your messages easier. Direct Push, Fetch Mail, Remote e-mail
search, and e-mail flags are just some of the tools you can use to manage
your e-mails.
Note
Some messaging features depend on the Microsoft Exchange Server version
used in your company. Check with your network administrator for the
availability of these features.
Automatic synchronization through Direct Push
Direct Push technology (push e-mail feature) enables you to receive new
e-mails on your device as soon as they arrive in your Inbox on the Exchange
Server. With this feature, items such as contacts, calendar and tasks are also
immediately updated onto your device when these items have been changed
or new entries have been added on the Exchange Server. To make Direct Push
work, you need to have a GPRS/EDGE connection on your device.
126 Working With Company E-mails and Meeting Appointments
You need to perform a full synchronization between your device and the
Exchange Server first before Direct Push can be enabled.
Requirement
The Direct Push feature works for your device only if your company
is using Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 Service Pack 2 (SP2)
with Exchange ActiveSync or higher version.
To enable Direct Push via Comm Manager
1. Tap Start > Programs > Comm Manager.
2. On the Comm Manager screen, tap the Microsoft Direct Push button
to enable or disable Direct Push.
When enabled, the ON indicator is activated, which indicates that
you will receive e-mails as they arrive. When disabled, you need to
manually retrieve your e-mails.
To enable Direct Push via ActiveSync
1. In ActiveSync on your device, tap Menu > Schedule.
2. Select As items arrive in the Peak times and Off-peak times boxes.
Scheduled synchronization
If you do not want to use Direct Push, you can set a regular schedule for
synchronizing Outlook e-mail and information.
1. In ActiveSync on your device, tap Menu > Schedule.
2. Select a shorter time interval in the Peak times box for you to be able
to receive e-mails more frequently. (Peak times usually refer to your
working hours when e-mail volume is high).
3. Select a longer interval in the Off-peak times box.
Tip
To set the days and hours that make up your peak and off-peak times,
tap the Adjust peak times to fit your schedule link at the bottom of
the screen.
Working With Company E-mails and Meeting Appointments 127
Instant download through Fetch Mail
The Fetch Mail feature downloads an entire e-mail immediately without the
need for you to perform a full Send/Receive action. This limits the download
to just the e-mail message that you want and helps save data cost.
Requirement
Fetch Mail works for your device only if your company is using
Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 or higher.
1. Tap Start > Messaging > Outlook E-mail.
2. Tap an e-mail message to open it.
3. By default, only the first few words of the message is shown. To
download the whole e-mail, finger-scroll to the end of the message,
then tap Get the rest of this message.
4. A “Downloading” status appears. Wait for the remainder of the
message body to download.
Tip
For information about changing e-mail sync options such as the initial
download size limit for e-mail, see "Customize e-mail settings" in Chapter 7.
Note
When you receive an e-mail that contains a link to a document such as a PDF
or Microsoft Office document located on SharePoint or an internal file server,
you can tap the link to view the document on your device. You can view the
document only if you have a Microsoft Outlook account that synchronizes
with Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 or later. Exchange Server must also
be set up to allow access to SharePoint document libraries or internal file
servers.

a useful feature on desktop Outlook E-mail, can also be done in Outlook
Mobile on your device. You can flag received e-mail messages on your
device.
Requirement
Flags are enabled only if e-mails are synchronized with Microsoft
Exchange Server 2007 or higher. Flags are disabled or hidden
if e-mails are synchronized with earlier versions of Microsoft
Exchange Server.

164 Using GPS
11.1 Guidelines and Preparation for Using GPS
•
Do not operate the GPS system while driving. The plotted GPS route
is only for driving reference. It should not interfere with actual driving
behavior.
•
Please use the GPS system cautiously. Users shall be liable for any
damages resulting from negligent operation of the system.
•
The GPS signal cannot pass
External GPS antenna connector
through solid non-transparent
(at the back of the self-portrait mirror)
objects. Signal reception may be
affected by obstructions such
as high-rise buildings, tunnels,
bridges, forests, weather (rainy or
cloudy days), etc. If the vehicle’s
visor contains metal, it will be
difficult for the GPS signal to
pass through. For better signal
reception, connect your device to
an external GPS antenna.
Wireless communication products (such as mobile phones or radardetecting devices) may interfere with the satellite signal, resulting in
unstable signal reception.
•
•
The Global Positioning System (GPS) is built and operated by the US
Defense Department. The Department is responsible for the accuracy
and maintenance of the system. Any changes that the Department
makes may affect the accuracy and function of the GPS system.
•
Do not leave your device in a vehicle or expose the device to direct
sunlight to avoid overheating the battery, which could pose damage
to the device or risk to the vehicle.
Using GPS 165
•
When using the device inside a vehicle, use the car holder to mount
the device securely in place. Avoid placing the device in the areas
shown in the following diagram:
1 Do not place where it will block the driver’s vision.
2 Do not place where air bags could deploy.
3 Do not place anywhere in the vehicle without securing the device
in the holder.

11.2 Downloading Satellite Data via QuickGPS
Before you start using your device for GPS navigation, open the QuickGPS
program first to download ephemeris data (current satellite position and
timing information) onto your device. This data is needed to determine the
GPS position of your current location.
QuickGPS downloads ephemeris data from a Web server, instead of
from the satellites, using the Internet connection on your device, which
can be via ActiveSync or GPRS. This significantly speeds up the time for
determining your GPS position.
To open QuickGPS
Tap Start > Programs > QuickGPS.
To download data
Tap Download on the QuickGPS screen.
On the screen, initially, you will see the Valid
time of the downloaded data. As time passes,

Soft reset
Occasionally, you may need to reset your device. A soft (or normal) reset
of your device clears all active program memory and shuts down all
active programs. This can be useful when your device is running slower
than normal, or a program is not performing properly. A soft reset is

2. Use the stylus to press the RESET
button located below the battery
compartment.
Your device restarts and displays
the Today screen.
Hard reset
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 your
device will be lost. Only Windows Mobile® software and other pre-installed
programs will remain.
Warning!
Your device will be set back to factory default settings. Make sure that
any additional installed programs and/or user data have been backed up
before you perform a hard reset.

Important If Encrypt files placed on storage cards is or was enabled before,
then backup all files from the storage card before using Clear Storage,
performing a hard reset, or updating the ROM system software. Otherwise
you will no longer be able to access the encrypted files on the storage
card. Use ActiveSync or Windows Mobile Device Center to transfer files
between your storage card and computer. After the procedure, copy your
files back to the storage card.
To perform a hard reset
1. Remove the back cover.
2. Press and hold the SOFT KEYS, then use the stylus to press the RESET
button located below the battery compartment.
3. Release the RESET button, but
continue pressing the SOFT
KEYS until you see this message
on the screen:
4. Release the SOFT KEYS, then
press TALK/SEND to perform the
hard reset, or press any other
button to cancel the reset.
This operation will delete
all your personal data,
and reset all settings
to manufacturer default.
Press Send to restore
manufacturer default, or
press other keys to cancel.
Clear Storage
Another way of clearing the device storage and reset all settings back to
factory default settings is to use the Clear Storage feature. You will lose all

Safety precautions for RF exposure
•
•
Use only original manufacturer-approved accessories, or accessories
that do not contain any metal.
Use of non-original manufacturer-approved accessories may violate
your local RF exposure guidelines and should be avoided.
Exposure to Radio Frequency (RF) Signals
Your device contains a radio transmitter and receiver. The radiated output
power is far below the international radio frequency exposure limits. 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 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 phones employs a unit of
measurement known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The standard
incorporates a substantial margin of safety to give additional protection for
the public and to account for any variations in usage.
As with other mobile radio transmitting equipment, users are advised that
for satisfactory operation of the equipment and for the safety of personnel,
it is recommended that no part of the human body be allowed to come too
close to the antenna during operation of the equipment.
Your device has an internal antenna. Use only the supplied integral antenna.
Use of unauthorized or modified antennas may impair call quality and
damage the phone, causing loss of performance and SAR levels exceeding
the recommended limits as well as result in non-compliance with local
regulatory requirements in your country.
To assure optimal phone performance and ensure human exposure to RF
energy is within the guidelines set forth in the relevant standards; always
Appendix 229
use your device only in its normal-use position. Do not touch or hold the
antenna area unnecessarily when placing or receiving a phone call. Contact
with the antenna area may impair call quality and cause your device to
operate at a higher power level than needed. Avoiding contact with the
antenna area when the phone is IN USE optimizes the antenna performance
and the battery life.
D=0.01058m is the minimum distance between the EUT and human body
to meet the E-field strength of 61V/m as required in Annex III table 2 of EC
Council Recommendation (1999/519/EC). This proves that the unit complies
with the EN50371 for RF exposure requirement.
Body-worn measurements were tested for typical body-worn operations
with the back of the device kept 1.5 cm from the body.

Other Medical Devices
If you use any other personal medical device, consult the manufacturer
of your device to determine if they are adequately shielded from external
RF energy. Your physician may be able to assist you in obtaining this

WEEE Notice
The Directive on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE), which
entered into force as European law on 13th February 2003, resulted in a
major change in the treatment of electrical equipment at end-of-life.
The purpose of this Directive is, as a first priority, the prevention of WEEE,
and in addition, to promote the reuse, recycling and other forms of recovery
of such wastes so as to reduce disposal.
The WEEE logo (shown at the left) on the product or on its box
indicates that this product must not be disposed of or dumped
with your other household waste. You are liable to dispose of all
your electronic or electrical waste equipment by relocating over
to the specified collection point for recycling of such hazardous
waste. Isolated collection and proper recovery of your electronic
and electrical waste equipment at the time of disposal will
allow us to help conserving natural resources. Moreover, proper
recycling of the electronic and electrical waste equipment will
ensure safety of human health and environment. For more
information about electronic and electrical waste equipment
disposal, recovery, and collection points, please contact your
local city center, household waste disposal service, shop from
where you purchased the equipment, or manufacturer of the
equipment.
RoHS Compliance
This product is in compliance with Directive 2002/95/EC of the European
Parliament and of the Council of 27 January 2003, on the restriction of the
use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment
(RoHS) and its amendments.
