Safety Precautions
Information for parents
Please read the operating instructions and safety precautions carefully before use. Explain the content to your
children and the hazards associated with using the phone.
Remember to comply with legal
requirements and local restrictions
when using the phone. For example, in
aeroplanes, petrol stations, hospitals or
while driving.
Mobile phones can interfere with the
functioning of medical devices such as
hearing aids or pacemakers. Keep at
least 20 cm/9 inches between phone and
pacemaker. When using the mobile
phone hold it to the ear which is furthest
away from the pacemaker. For more
information consult your doctor.
ii Safety Precautions
Always keep the phone and accessories
out of reach of small children.
Small parts such as the SIM card, dust
cap, lens ring and lens cap as well as the
SD Card can be dismantled and
swallowed by small children.
Do not place the phone near to
electromagnetic data carriers such as
credit cards and floppy disks.
Information stored on them could be
lost.
Do not look directly into the LED
(e.g. flash LED) with optical magnifiers
because of radiation.
Permanent hearing loss may occur if
you use ear- or headphones at high
volume.You can adapt over time to a
higher volume, which may sound
normal but can be damaging to your
hearing. Set your volume to a safe level.
If you experience discomfort or buzzing
in your ears, reduce the volume or
discontinue use of your ear- or
headphones.
Ringtones, info tones and handsfree
talking are reproduced through the
loudspeaker. Do not hold the phone to
the ear when it rings or when you have
switched on the handsfree function.
Otherwise you risk serious permanent
damage to your hearing.
The mains voltage (V) specified on the
power supply unit must not be
exceeded. Otherwise the charging device
may be damaged.
The power supply must be plugged into
an easily accessible AC mains power
socket when charging the battery. The
only way to turn off the charging device
after charging the battery is to unplug it.
You may only open the phone to replace
the battery, SIM and SD Card. You must
not open the battery under any
circumstances. All other changes to this
device are strictly prohibited and will
invalidate the guarantee.
• Only use original batteries and
charging devices. Otherwise you risk
serious damage to health and
property. The battery could explode,
for instance.
• All batteries can cause property
damage, injury or burns if a
conductive material such as jewelry,
keys or beaded chains touch exposed
terminals. The material may complete
an electrical circuit and become quite
hot. Exercise care in handling any
charged battery, particularly when
placing it inside your pocket, purse or
other container with metal objects.
Your batteries are supplied with a
protective cover. Please attach this
cover to your batteries when detached
from the phone and not in use.
• Do not dispose of batteries in fire as
they may explode.
The phone may cause interference in the
vicinity of TV sets, radios and PCs.
Use only original accessories. This will
avoid potential risks to health or
property and ensure compliance with all
relevant regulations.
Safety Precautions iii
All electrical and electronic products
should be disposed of separately from
the household waste via designated
collection facilities appointed by the
government or the local authorities.
This crossed-out wheelie bin symbol on
the product means the product is
covered by the European Directive
2002/96/EC.
The correct disposal and separate
collection of your old appliance will help
prevent potential negative
consequences for the environment and
human health. It is a precondition for
re-use and recycling of used electrical
and electronic equipment.
For more detailed information about
disposal of your old appliance, please
contact your local council, waste
disposal service or the shop where you
purchased the product.
Improper use will invalidate the guarantee! These
safety instructions also apply to original accessories.
Bluetooth®
Your phone has a Bluetooth interface. This makes it
possible to establish a wireless connection with your
phone and a headset of a car kit, or other Bluetoothenabled devices.
In order to establish a secure link between the devices
and to prevent a third party from having access to
your phone, you should observe the following points:
• The initial connection between two devices, what is
called "pairing", should take place in familiar
surroundings.
• Both devices must be able to identify themselves one
time by using a password/PIN. To ensure sufficient
security, you should choose a 16-digit number
iv Safety Precautions
combination for a password that would be difficult
to guess (if a PIN has not been assigned).
• An automatic connection acceptance ("connection
without confirmation") should only be used in
exceptional cases.
• In general, only trustworthy devices should be
linked in order to minimize security risks.
• You should restrict the "visibility" of your phone if
possible. This will make it much more difficult for
unknown devices to establish a connection with
your phone. To do this, in the Wireless Manager
window, tap Menu > Bluetooth Settings and
uncheck the “Make this device discoverable to other
devices” option.
• The name of your phone is transmitted in a
Bluetooth connection. The factory default name is
"Pocket_PC". The first time Bluetooth is activated,
or later in the Bluetooth menu, you can change this
name by tapping Start > Settings > Owner
Information.
• If Bluetooth is not needed, this function should be
deactivated.
Before using Bluetooth accessories, or a mobile phone
inside a vehicle, check the vehicle user guide for any
limitations on the use of these products.

Input methods
The PDA phone has a number of input methods to choose from. When using the phone
function, simply use the QWERTY keyboard to enter the phone number then press the Send
key. When using a program that supports text input, you have the option of using the
QWERTY keyboard or choosing from a number of ‘soft’ input methods from the Input Panel
to enter typed text. The stylus is available as a point-and-click device for navigation. Finally,
you can use the stylus to handwrite or make drawings (for certain programs that support
this) and have the results saved as graphics. For example, in Notes, you can literally scribble
notes on the touchscreen and save them to a file.
Entering typed text
When you need to enter typed text in a program, you can do so either with the QWERTY
keyboard or one of the input methods provided by the Input Panel. The Input Panel is an
icon on the menu bar when you open a program that supports text input.
Using the QWERTY keyboard
The QWERTY keyboard allows you to enter text conveniently - just type on it. You can use
the QWERTY keyboard any time you need to type something. For example, use the
QWERTY keyboard to key in the phone number you wish to dial in Phone. Or type in a long
block of text into your Calendar or Word Mobile. The QWERTY keyboard makes text entry
very convenient and is an efficient alternative to the soft input methods as described below.

on the screen or scribbling to a handwriting recognition tool. The following describes the
different methods of text input as provided by the Input Panel.
• Available input methods may vary depending on the language version of the operating
system.
• For some languages like traditional Chinese and simplified Chinese, you can hold the
Function key and press the Tab key to toggle between English and Chinese.
Virtual keyboard
1. Tap the arrow next to Input Panel, and then tap Keyboard.
2. A virtual keyboard will appear on the screen above the menu bar. Tap the keys on this virtual
keyboard to enter typed text.
You can change the size of the keys on the virtual keyboard by changing Options > Settings.

Letter Recognizer
Letter Recognizer is a handwriting recognition tool that allows you to handwrite one letter at
a time while it converts it into typed letter.
1. Tap the arrow next to Input Panel, and then tap Letter Recognizer.
2. Write a letter in the box with the stylus.
Letter Recognizer provides three boxes for you to write either an uppercase letter, lowercase
letter or number. This division increases the accuracy of its letter recognition ability.
Block Recognizer
With Block Recognizer, you can use the stylus to input character strokes similar to those used
on other devices. It uses technology similar to that of Palm's Grafitti product.
1. Tap the arrow next to Input Panel, and then tap Block Recognizer.
2. Write a letter in the box.
When you write a letter, it is converted to typed text that appears on the screen. Click the
button to open a panel of symbols and special characters to enter in your text.
Transcriber
With Transcriber, you can write anywhere on the screen using the stylus just as you would on
paper. Unlike Letter Recognizer and Block Recognizer, you can write a sentence or more of
information. Then, pause and let Transcriber change the written characters to typed
characters.
1. Tap the arrow next to Input Panel, and then tap Transcriber.
2. Write anywhere on the screen.
For specific instructions on using Transcriber, with Transcriber open, tap the question mark
in the lower right hand corner of the screen.
Input methods 23
Writing on the screen
In any program that accepts writing such as Notes, you can use your stylus to write directly
on the screen. Write the way you do on paper. You can edit and format what you have written
and convert the information to text at a later time.
To help you write by displaying lines on the screen, open a program like Notes and tap New
to create a new note, or tap Menu > Draw to enable the Draw mode.
Selecting a sentence
If you want to edit or format writing, you must select it first.
1. Tap and hold the stylus next to the text you want to select until the insertion point appears.
2. Without lifting, drag the stylus across the text you want to select.
If you accidentally write on the screen, tap Menu > Undo and try again. You can cut, copy
and paste written text in the same way you work with typed text: tap and hold the selected
words and then tap an editing command from Menu.
24 Input methods
Converting writing to text
Tap Menu > Tools > Recognize.
If you want to convert only certain words, tap Menu >
Draw to disable the Draw mode first. Then select these
words and tap Menu > Tools > Recognize. (or tap and
hold the selected words and then tap Recognize on the
pop-up menu). If a word is not recognised, it is left as
writing.
If the conversion is incorrect, you can select different
words from a list of alternatives or return to the original
writing. To do so, tap and hold the incorrect word (tap
one word at a time). On the pop-up menu, tap
Alternates. A menu with a list of alternative words
appears. Tap the word you want to use, or tap the
writing at the top of the menu to return to the original
writing.
Tips for getting good recognition:
• Write neatly.
• Write on the lines and draw descenders below the line.
Write the cross of the “t” and apostrophes below the
top line so that they are not confused with the word above. Write full stops and commas
above the line.
• For better recognition, try increasing the zoom level to 300% using Menu > Zoom.
• Write the letters of a word closely and leave big gaps between words so that the device can
easily tell where words begin and end.
• Hyphenated words, foreign words that use special characters such as accents, and some
punctuation cannot be converted.
• If you add writing to a word to change it (such as changing a “3” to an “8”) after you attempt to
recognise the word, the writing you add will not be included if you attempt to recognise the
writing again.
Input methods 25
Drawing on the screen
You can draw on the screen in the same way that you
write on the screen. The difference between writing and
drawing on the screen is how you select items and how
they can be edited. For example, selected drawings can be
resized, while writing cannot.
Creating a drawing
Cross three ruled lines on your first stroke. A drawing
box appears. Subsequent strokes in or touching the
drawing box become part of the drawing. Drawings that
do not cross three ruled lines will be treated as writing.
You may want to change the zoom level so that you can
work on or view your drawing more easily. Tap Tools and
then a zoom level.
Selecting a drawing
If you want to edit or format a drawing, disable the Draw mode and then select it.
Tap the stylus on the drawing until the selection handle appears. To select multiple drawings,
tap and hold the stylus and then drag to select the drawings you want.
You can cut, copy and paste selected drawings by tapping and holding the selected drawing
and then tapping an editing command on the pop-up menu, or by tapping the command
from Menu. To resize a drawing, drag a selection handle.

Microsoft ActiveSync
Using Microsoft ActiveSync, you can synchronise the information on your desktop computer
with the information on your device. Synchronisation compares the data on your device with
your desktop computer and updates both computers with the most recent information. For
example:
• Keep Pocket Outlook data up-to-date by synchronising your device with Microsoft Outlook
data on your desktop computer.
• Synchronise Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel files between your device and desktop
computer. Your files are automatically converted to the correct format.
• Back up and restore your device data.
• Copy (rather than synchronise) files between your device and desktop computer.
• Control when synchronisation occurs by selecting a synchronisation mode. For example,
you can synchronise continually while connected to your desktop computer or only when
you choose the synchronise command.
• Select which information types are synchronised and control how much data is
synchronised. For example, you can choose how many weeks of past appointments you
want synchronised.
Installing ActiveSync on PC
Insert the Companion CD containing ActiveSync into the optical drive of your computer,
and then follow the instructions on the screen to complete installation.
To ensure that synchronisation works properly, you must install Microsoft ActiveSync on your
computer before connecting your PDA phone to the computer.
Setting up a sync relationship
After you have installed ActiveSync on your PC, you can begin to connect your PDA phone to
the PC. Take the included data cable and connect the mini-USB end to your PDA phone’s
mini-USB socket and the USB end to your computer’s USB socket.
Once the data cable connects the PDA phone to the PC, the PDA phone will emit a sound
indicating connection found. On the PC side, a Synchronization Setup Wizard will
automatically pop up.
Microsoft ActiveSync 71
To synchronise information:
1. Decide if you want to synchronise your information with a Microsoft Exchange Server, and
then click Next.
2. Select an information type (such as Contacts and Calendar) to synchronise, and then click
Next.
3. Click Finish to close the wizard and start synchronisation. During synchronisation, ActiveSync
examines each of the information types you selected to be synchronised and sees which records
are not the same on both the PDA phone and PC. Once both the PDA phone and PC have the
same information, all information types will be listed as Synchronized.
After synchronisation, you can check that information you have stored in Microsoft Outlook
on your PC has been copied to your PDA phone without having to type a word. Disconnect
your PDA phone from your PC and you are ready to go.
Once you have set up ActiveSync and completed the first synchronisation process, you can
start synchronisation again any time from your PDA phone or the PC. To do so, connect your
PDA phone to the PC and then synchronisation will automatically start. You can also tap
Start > Programs > ActiveSync > Sync on your PDA phone, or click Synchronize from
within ActiveSync on the PC.
• If the connection between your PDA phone and the PC is not stable, tap Start > Settings >
Connections > USB to PC and uncheck Enable advanced network functionality. If the
problem still exists, disable the virus protection program and/or the firewall on the PC.
• While your PDA phone and the PC are connected, every time the data of an information type
is updated (for example, a new e-mail is available in the Inbox), the same update will be
synchronised automatically to your PDA phone shortly afterwards.
Adding programs
If you want to install a new program to your PDA phone, you will need to install it first on
your PC.
1. Determine your PDA phone’s processor type so that you know which version of the software to

82 Troubleshooting information
Care and
maintenance
Your phone has been designed and manufactured to
the highest of standards and should be treated with
great care. The suggestions below will help you to
enjoy your phone for many years.
• Protect your phone from moisture and humidity.
Precipitation, humidity and liquids contain
minerals that will corrode electronic circuits.
Should your phone become wet, disconnect it
immediately from the power supply to avoid electric
shock. Do not place your phone (even to dry it) on/
in a source of heat such as a microwave oven, oven
or radiator. The phone may become overheated and
possibly explode.
• Do not use or store the phone in dusty, dirty areas.
Its moving parts may be damaged and the casing
may become deformed and discoloured.
• Do not store your phone in hot environments (e.g.
vehicle instrument panel in the summer). High
temperatures can shorten the life of electronic
devices, damage batteries and warp or melt certain
plastics.
• Do not store your phone in cold environments.
When the phone warms up again (to its normal
ambient temperature), moisture can form inside the
phone, which may damage electronic circuit boards.
• Do not drop, knock or shake your phone. Rough
handling can damage internal circuit boards.
• Do not use harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents, or
strong detergents to clean the phone.
• The phone has better protection against splashes,
dust and knocks if the supplied seals are used.
The suggestions given above apply equally to your
phone, battery, charger and all accessories. If any of
these parts is not working properly, obtain fast and
reliable help at our service centres.
Battery quality statement
The capacity of your mobile phone battery will reduce
each time it is charged/emptied. Storage at too high or
low temperatures will also result in a gradual capacity
loss. As a result the operating time of your mobile
phone may be considerably reduced, even after a full
recharge of the battery.
Regardless of this, the battery has been designed and
manufactured so that it can be recharged and used for
six months after the purchase of you mobile phone.
After six months, if the battery is clearly suffering
from loss of performance, we recommend that you
replace it. Please buy only original batteries.
Display quality statement
For technological reasons, a few small dots with
different colours may appear in the display in
exceptional cases.
Just remember that the appearance of brighter or
darker dots generally does not mean that a fault has
occurred.

SAR
European Union (R&TTE) and
international (ICNIRP)
INFORMATION ON RF EXPOSURE / SPECIFIC
ABSORPTION RATE (SAR)
THIS MODEL MEETS INTERNATIONAL GUIDELINES FOR EXPOSURE TO RADIO WAVES
Your mobile device is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed not to exceed the limits for exposure
to radio waves recommended by international guidelines. These guidelines were developed by the independent scientific organization ICNIRP and include
safety margins designed to assure the protection of all
persons, regardless of age and health.
The guidelines use a unit of measurement known as
the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit
for mobile devices is 2 W/kg and was adopted into the
European Standard EN 50360 and into other national
standards. The CE mark demonstrates that the EU requirements are met.
The highest SAR value for this device when tested at
the ear was 0.346 W/kg1. As mobile devices offer a
range of functions, they can be used in positions other
than the head, such as on the body. In this case, a
separation distance of 1.5 cm is required.
As SAR is measured utilizing the device's highest
transmitting power, the actual SAR of this device
while operating is typically below that indicated
above. This is due to automatic changes to the power
level of the device to ensure it only uses the minimum
level required to reach the network.
The World Health Organization has stated that
present scientific information does not indicate the
need for any special precautions for the use of mobile
devices. They note that if you nevertheless want to reduce your exposure then you can do so by limiting the
length of calls or using a 'hands-free' device to keep
the mobile phone away from the head and body.
Additional Information can be found on the
websites of the World Health Organization
(www.who.int/emf) or BenQ Mobile
(www.BenQMobile.com).
Maximum SAR measurement for
FCC requirements
Head: 0.508 W/Kg (1g)
Body: 0.706 W/Kg (1g)

guidelines for testing.

trademark or trade names, in accordance with the rules of
law in each country.
