Limited Warranty
HARDWARE: Palm Computing, Inc., a subsidiary of 3Com Corporation (collectively "3Com"),
warrants to the original end user ("Customer") that this product will be free from defects in
workmanship and materials, under normal use, for one year from the date of original purchase from
3Com or its authorized reseller. 3Com’s sole obligation under this express warranty shall be, at
3Com’s option and expense, to replace the product or part with a comparable product or part, repair
the product or part, or if neither repair nor replacement is reasonably available, 3Com may, in its sole
discretion, refund to Customer the purchase price paid for the product or part. Replacement
products or parts may be new or reconditioned. 3Com warrants any replaced or repaired product
or part, and any hardware upgrade to which Customer is entitled under an agreement between
Customer and 3Com, for a period of ninety (90) days from shipment, or through the end of the
original warranty, whichever is longer. All products or parts that are replaced become the property
of 3Com.
Accessory products, as listed in the applicable 3Com catalogue, are not covered under this Limited
Warranty except for the modem for the connected organizer, the cradles, cables, memory upgrades,
and leather items sold under the 3Com® brand. 3Com shall not be responsible for Customer's
software, firmware, information, or memory data contained in, stored on, or integrated with any
products returned to 3Com for repair, whether under warranty or not.
SOFTWARE: 3Com warrants to Customer that the Palm™ desktop organizer software and Palm
OS™ software licensed from it will perform in substantial conformance to their program
specifications, for a period of ninety (90) days from the date of original purchase from 3Com or its
authorized reseller. 3Com warrants the media containing software against failure during the
warranty period. No updates are provided. 3Com does not provide any warranty for Adobe®
Acrobat® Reader or any other third-party applications software that is licensed to Customer by the
third party. 3Com's sole obligation with respect to this express warranty shall be (at 3Com's
discretion) to refund the purchase price paid by Customer for any defective software product, or to
replace any defective media with software which substantially conforms to applicable 3Com
published specifications. 3Com makes no warranty or representation that its software products will
meet Customer's requirements or will work in combination with any hardware or applications
software products provided by third parties, that the operation of the software products will be
uninterrupted or error free, or that all defects in the software products will be corrected.
YEAR 2000 WARRANTY: In addition to the Hardware Warranty and Software Warranty stated
above, 3Com warrants that the following date-data sensitive Palm Computing® products, namely
the Pilot 1000, Pilot 5000, PalmPilot™ Personal Edition, PalmPilot Professional Edition, and Palm
III™ connected organizers, as well as all other 3Com products based on the Palm Computing
platform software as of July 1, 1998 and later, including the companion desktop software for
Microsoft® Windows® and MAC OS™ platforms, will continue performing properly with regard to
such date-data on and after January 1, 2000, provided that all other products used by Customer in
connection or combination with the Palm Computing product, including hardware, software, and
firmware, accurately exchange date-data with the Palm Computing product. 3Com makes no
certification regarding the Year 2000 status of any other Palm Computing products.
Any Palm Computing platform application supplied by 3Com that makes correct use of Palm
Computing platform date and time functions will not have a problem transitioning to the year 2000.
The date and time utilities for the Palm Computing platform use 32 bits to store seconds, starting at
January 1, 1904. This approach allows the correct representation of dates up to 6:28:15 A.M. on
February 6, 2040. Provided the product is still being sold, 3Com will make software enhancements
to remove this limitation to the Palm Computing platform well in advance of this date.
If it appears that any Palm Computing product does not perform properly with regard to such datedata on and after January 1, 2000, and Customer notifies Palm Computing before the later of April
1, 2000, or ninety (90) days after original purchase of the product from 3Com or its authorized
reseller, 3Com shall, at its option and expense, provide a software update which would effect the
proper performance of the product, repair the product, deliver to Customer an equivalent product
to replace the product, or, if none of the foregoing is feasible, refund to Customer the purchase price
paid for the product.
Any software update or replaced or repaired Palm Computing product will carry a Year 2000
Limited Warranty for ninety (90) days after purchase or until April 1, 2000, whichever is later.
Limited Warranty and Software Agreement

Customers using date and time utilities other than those supplied by Palm Computing should check
with the developer to determine if the software will correctly handle all of the subtle issues of date
and time conversion.
OBTAINING WARRANTY SERVICE: Customer must contact a Palm Computing, Inc. or 3Com
Technical Support or Customer Service center within the applicable warranty period to obtain
warranty service authorization. Dated proof of original purchase from 3Com or its authorized
reseller will be required. 3Com is not responsible for Customer products or parts received without
a warranty service authorization. In the United States, 3Com may ship a replacement product or
part prior to receiving the original product or part ("advance exchange"). If advance exchange is not
available, then the repaired product or part will be shipped as soon as reasonably possible, which
will be no later than thirty (30) days after 3Com receives the original product or part. Repaired or
replacement products will be shipped to Customer at 3Com’s expense. The repair and replacement
process for products or parts in locations outside of the United States will vary depending on
Customer’s location.
Products or parts shipped by Customer to 3Com must be sent prepaid and packaged appropriately
for safe shipment, and it is recommended that they be insured or sent by a method that provides for
tracking of the package. When an advance exchange is provided and Customer fails to return the
original product or part to 3Com within thirty (30) days from the date the warranty service
authorization is issued, 3Com will charge Customer the then-current published catalogue price of
such product or part.

PRICE PAID, AT 3COM’S OPTION. TO THE FULL EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW, THE

BY OPERATION OF LAW, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING WARRANTIES, TERMS,

NOR AUTHORIZES ANY OTHER PERSON TO ASSUME FOR IT ANY OTHER LIABILITY IN
CONNECTION WITH THE SALE, INSTALLATION, MAINTENANCE OR USE OF ITS
PRODUCTS.
3COM SHALL NOT BE LIABLE UNDER THIS WARRANTY IF ITS TESTING AND
EXAMINATION DISCLOSE THAT THE ALLEGED DEFECT OR MALFUNCTION IN THE
PRODUCT DOES NOT EXIST OR WAS CAUSED BY CUSTOMER’S OR ANY THIRD PERSON’S
MISUSE, NEGLECT, IMPROPER INSTALLATION OR TESTING, UNAUTHORIZED ATTEMPTS
TO OPEN, REPAIR, OR MODIFY THE PRODUCT, OR ANY OTHER CAUSE BEYOND THE
RANGE OF THE INTENDED USE, OR BY ACCIDENT, FIRE, LIGHTNING, OTHER HAZARDS,
OR ACTS OF GOD. THIS WARRANTY DOES NOT COVER PHYSICAL DAMAGE TO THE
SURFACE OF THE PRODUCT, INCLUDING CRACKS OR SCRATCHES ON THE LCD
TOUCHSCREEN OR OUTSIDE CASING. THIS WARRANTY DOES NOT APPLY WHEN THE
MALFUNCTION RESULTS FROM THE USE OF THIS PRODUCT IN CONJUNCTION WITH
ACCESSORIES, OTHER PRODUCTS, OR ANCILLARY OR PERIPHERAL EQUIPMENT AND
3COM DETERMINES THAT THERE IS NO FAULT WITH THE PRODUCT ITSELF. THIS
WARRANTY DOES NOT APPLY TO ANY MALFUNCTION OR FAILURE OF THE PRODUCT OR
PART DUE TO ANY COMMUNICATION SERVICE CUSTOMER MAY SUBSCRIBE TO OR USE
WITH THE PRODUCT.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY: TO THE FULL EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW, 3COM ALSO
EXCLUDES FOR ITSELF AND ITS SUPPLIERS ANY LIABILITY, WHETHER BASED IN

SUCH DAMAGES, AND LIMITS ITS LIABILITY TO REPLACEMENT, REPAIR, OR REFUND OF
THE PURCHASE PRICE PAID, AT 3COM’S OPTION. THIS DISCLAIMER OF LIABILITY FOR
DAMAGES WILL NOT BE AFFECTED IF ANY REMEDY PROVIDED HEREIN SHALL FAIL OF
ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.

DISCLAIMER: Some countries, states, or provinces do not allow the exclusion or limitation of
implied warranties or the limitation of incidental or consequential damages for certain products

to be excluded in their entirety, they will be limited to the duration of the applicable written
warranty. This warranty gives you specific legal rights which may vary depending on local law.
GOVERNING LAW: This Limited Warranty shall be governed by the laws of the State of
California, U.S.A. excluding its conflicts of laws principles and excluding the United Nations
