1.1 About the SIM Card and Battery
Always turn off your device before installing/replacing the battery and SIM card. Follow the
instructions in the Quick Start Guide to install a GSM SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) card
provided by your local network service provider and to install the battery.
The SIM card contains your phone number, service details, and phonebook/message
memory. Your device supports both 1.8V and 3V SIM cards. Some legacy SIM cards will not
function within your device. You should consult with your service provider for a replacement
SIM card. There may be fees for this service.
Your device contains a rechargeable Li-ion polymer battery. This device is designed to use
only manufacturer-specified original batteries and accessories. Battery performance depends
on many factors, including your wireless service provider’s network configuration, signal
strength, the temperature of the environment in which you operate your device, the features
and/or settings you select and use, items attached to connecting ports, and your voice, data,
and other program usage patterns.
Battery life estimates (approximations):
•
Standby time: 150 -- 200 hours
•
Talk time (Screen off): 3.5 -- 5 hours
Warning! To reduce risk of fire or burns.
• Do not attempt to open, disassemble, or service the battery pack.
• Do not crush, puncture, short external contacts, or dispose of in fire or water.
• Do not expose to temperatures above 60oC (140oF).

Dopod 818 Pro
4.1 Setting Up ActiveSync
4.2 Synchronizing Information
4.3 Synchronizing via Infrared and Bluetooth
4.4 Synchronizing Music, Video, and Pictures
44 Synchronizing Your Dopod 818 Pro
4.1 Setting Up ActiveSync
ActiveSync synchronizes information on your device with information on your PC, such
as Outlook content. ActiveSync can also synchronize over a wireless or cellular network
with Microsoft Exchange Server, if your company or service provider is running Microsoft
Exchange Server with Exchange ActiveSync.
Specifically, you can use ActiveSync to:
•
Synchronize information, such as Outlook E-mail, Contacts, Calendar, or Tasks
information on your device with your PC, as well as pictures, video, and music.
•
Synchronize Outlook E-mail, Contacts, Calendar appointments, and Tasks on your
device directly with Exchange Server so that you can stay up to date even when your
PC is turned off.
•
Copy files between your device and your PC without synchronizing.
•
Select which types of information are synchronized and specify how much information
is synchronized. For example, you can choose how many weeks of past Calendar
appointments to synchronize.
To install and set up ActiveSync on the computer
1. Install ActiveSync on your PC, as described on the Getting Started CD. After Setup
completes, the Synchronization Setup Wizard automatically starts when you connect
your device to the PC.
2. Follow the instructions on the screen to complete the wizard. In the Sync Setup Wizard,
do one or both of the following:
•
Create a synchronization relationship between your PC and your device.
•
Configure an Exchange Server connection to synchronize directly with Exchange
Server. You need to specify the Exchange Server address, user name, password,
and domain name. (Get these information from your administrator).
3. Choose the information types to synchronize.
When you finish the wizard, ActiveSync synchronizes your device automatically. Once
synchronization completes, you can disconnect your device from your PC.
Synchronizing Your Dopod 818 Pro 45
4.2 Synchronizing Information
When you connect your device to the PC using a USB or serial cable, an infrared
connection, or a Bluetooth connection, ActiveSync will immediately synchronize. While your
device is connected, ActiveSync synchronizes every time you make a change on either the
PC or your device.
To manually start and stop synchronization
1. Connect your device to the PC:
•
To synchronize Outlook information and other local information on the PC, including
media files, connect your device to the PC using Bluetooth, infrared (IR) or a cable.
•
If you are synchronizing directly with Exchange Server, you can use this connection
to the PC to "pass though" to the network, or you can synchronize without
connecting to the PC over a cellular network.
2. In ActiveSync, tap Sync. To end synchronization before it completes, tap Stop.
Synchronizing Outlook information
If you have set up a synchronization relationship between your device and the PC,
synchronization keeps Outlook information up-to-date on both computers.
You can also set up your device to synchronize with more than one PC or with a combination
of one or more PCs and Exchange Server. When synchronizing with multiple computers,
the items that you synchronize will appear on all of the computers with which they are
synchronized. For example, if you have set up synchronization with two PCs (PC1 and PC2),
which have different items, and you synchronize Contacts and Calendar on your device with
both computers, the result is as follows:
Location
PC1
PC2
Dopod
818 Pro
Note
New state
All Outlook contacts and calendar appointments that were on PC2 are now also on
PC1.
All Outlook contacts and calendar appointments that were on PC1 are now also on
PC2.
All Outlook contacts and calendar appointments from both PC1 and PC2 are on your
device.
Outlook e-mail can be synchronized with only one computer.
46 Synchronizing Your Dopod 818 Pro
To change which information is synchronized
ActiveSync synchronizes a limited amount of information by default to save storage space on
your device. You can change the amount of information that is synchronized by performing
the following steps.
1. In ActiveSync on your device, tap Menu > Options.
2. Do one or both of the following:
•
Select the check box for any items you want to synchronize. If you cannot select
a check box, you might have to clear the check box for the same information type
elsewhere in the list.
•
Clear the check box for any items you want to stop synchronizing.
•
Notes
To stop synchronizing with one PC completely, tap the PC and tap Delete.
• Outlook e-mail can be synchronized with only one computer.
• To change available synchronization settings, select the type of information and tap Settings.
Synchronize directly with Exchange Server
You can set up synchronization with Exchange Server on your device, if it is available to
you through your company or wireless service provider. However, you should first ask your
administrator for the following information and then carry on with the steps: Exchange Server
name, your user name, password, and domain name.
1. In ActiveSync on your device, tap Menu > Configure Server. If you have not yet set up
synchronization with Exchange Server, this will say Add Server Source.
2. In Server address, enter the name of the server running Exchange Server, and tap
Next.
3. Enter your user name, password, and domain, and tap Next. To change the rules for
resolving synchronization conflicts, tap Advanced.
4. Select the check boxes for the types of information items that you want to synchronize
with Exchange Server.

between your device and the computer.
For more information about enabling and configuring Bluetooth, see Chapter 6.
48 Synchronizing Your Dopod 818 Pro
4.4 Synchronizing Music, Video, and Pictures
If you want to carry your music or other digital media with you along while you travel,
ActiveSync works with Windows Media Player to synchronize music, video, and pictures with
your device.
Other than selecting the Media information type in ActiveSync to be synchronized, all
media synchronization settings must be set in Windows Media Player. Before media can be
synchronized, you must do the following:
•
Install Windows Media Player Version 10 on the PC.
•
Connect your device to the PC with a USB cable. If your device is currently connected
using Bluetooth or infrared, you must end that connection before media can be
synchronized.
•
Insert a storage card into your device (32MB or larger is recommended).
•
Set up a sync partnership between the storage card and Windows Media Player.
Change Media synchronization settings
Once you select the Media information type in ActiveSync to be synchronized, any of
your favorite music, video, and picture files in Windows Media Player playlists can be
synchronized. All you have to do is set up synchronization in Windows Media Player for
those media files.
To set up a sync relationship with a storage card
1. On the computer, open Windows Media Player.
2. Click the Sync tab.
3. Select the storage card.
4. Click Set up Sync.

A soft reset is also necessary after the installation of some programs. If a soft reset is
performed when programs are running, unsaved work will be lost.
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.

7.1 E-mail and Text Messages
Messaging is where all of your e-mail accounts and your text message account are located.
You can send and receive Outlook e-mail, Internet e-mail through an Internet service
provider (ISP), and text messages. You can also access e-mail from work using a VPN
connection. For more information about e-mail and text messages, see Help on the device.
To set up an e-mail account
You need to set up an e-mail account that you have with an Internet service provider (ISP) or
an account that you access using a VPN server connection (typically a work account) before
you can send and receive mail.
1. Tap Start > Messaging.
2. Tap Menu > Tools > New Account.
3. Enter your e-mail address, then tap Next. Auto configuration attempts to download
necessary e-mail server settings so that you do not need to enter them manually.
4. Once Auto configuration has finished, tap Next.
5. Enter your name (the name you want displayed when you send e-mail), user name,
and password; tap Next.
Select the Save Password check box if you want to save your password so that you do not
need to enter it again.
If Auto configuration was successful, the Your name and User name fields automatically
get populated. Tap Next, then Finish to complete setting up your account, or tap Options
under Server information to access additional settings. For example:
•
Change the time intervals for downloading new messages.
•
Limit the amount of messages that are downloaded and authentication method for
outgoing mails.
•
Download full messages or parts of messages.
If Auto configuration is unsuccessful or you have an account you access using a VPN
server connection, contact your ISP or network administrator for the following information
and enter it manually:

Downloading messages
The manner in which you download messages depends on the type of account you have:
•
To send and receive e-mail for an Outlook E-mail account, begin synchronization
through ActiveSync. For more information, see “Synchronizing Outlook information” in
Chapter 4.
•
To send and receive e-mail messages for an e-mail account that you have with an
Internet Service Provider (ISP) or that you access using a VPN server connection
84 Exchanging Messages and Using Outlook
(typically a work account), download messages through a remote e-mail server. For
more information, see “To download messages from the server” later in this chapter.
•
Text messages are automatically received when phone is turned on. When your phone
is turned off (in flight mode), messages are held by your service provider until the next
time your phone is turned on.
To download messages from the server
To send and receive e-mail messages for an e-mail account that you have with an Internet
Service Provider (ISP) or that you access using a VPN server connection (typically a work
account), you first need to connect to the Internet or your corporate network, depending on
the account.
1. Tap Menu > Switch Accounts and tap the account you want to use.
2. Tap Menu > Send/Receive. The messages on your device and e-mail server are
synchronized: new messages are downloaded to the device Inbox folder, messages
in the device Outbox folder are sent, and messages that have been deleted from the
server are removed from the device Inbox folder.
Tip
If you want to read the entire message, tap Menu > Download Message while in the message
window. If you are in the message list, tap and hold the message, and tap Download Message.
The message will download the next time you send and receive e-mail. This will also download
message attachments if you selected those options when you set up the e-mail account.
Managing folders
Each Messaging account has its own folder hierarchy with five default Messaging folders:
Inbox, Outbox, Deleted Items, Drafts, and Sent Items. The messages you receive and send
through the account 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 the
device. The behavior of the Deleted Items and Sent Items folders depends on the Messaging
options you have chosen.
If you use an Outlook E-mail account, e-mail messages in the Inbox folder in Outlook will be
synchronized automatically with your device. You can select to synchronize additional folders
by designating them for synchronization. The folders you create and the messages you
move will then be mirrored on the e-mail 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 to
that folder. You can then read the messages while you are away from your PC.
Exchanging Messages and Using Outlook 85
If you use a text message account, messages are stored in the Inbox folder.
If you use a POP3 account and you move e-mail messages to a folder you created, the link
is broken between the messages on the device and their copies on the e-mail server. The
next time you connect, the e-mail server will detect that the messages are missing from the
Inbox folder on the device and will delete them from the e-mail server. This prevents having
duplicate copies of a message, but it also means that you will no longer have access to
messages that you move to folders created from anywhere except the device.
If you use an IMAP4 account, the folders you create and the e-mail messages you move
are mirrored on the e-mail server. Therefore, messages are available to you anytime you
connect to your e-mail server, whether it is from your device or PC. This synchronization of
folders occurs whenever you connect to your e-mail server, create new folders, or rename/
delete folders when connected. You can also set different download options for each folder.
7.2 MMS Messages
Creating and sharing MMS messages with your friends and family are easy with your
device. You can even use the device camera to capture photos and video clips while
composing a new MMS message, and send them along with your message.
Notes

About licenses and protected files
Some content (such as digital media files downloaded from the Internet, CD tracks, and
videos) have associated licenses that protect them from being unlawfully distributed or
shared. Licenses are created and managed by using digital rights management (DRM),
which is the technology for securing content and managing its access rights. Some licenses
may prevent you from playing files that have been copied to your device. Files that have
licenses associated with them are called “protected files.”
If you want to copy a protected file from your PC to your device, use the desktop Player to
synchronize the file to your device (instead of dragging the file from a folder on your PC to a
folder on your device, for example). This will ensure that the license is copied along with the
protected file. For more information about synchronizing files to your device and other mobile
devices, see desktop Player Help.
Note
You can view the protection status for a file by checking its file properties (tapping Menu >
Properties).
To play items on your device
Use the library to find and play songs, videos, and playlists that are stored on your device or
removable storage card.
1. If you are not on the Library screen, tap Menu > Library.
2. On the Library screen, tap the Library arrow (near the top of the screen), then tap the
library that you want use (for example, Storage Card).
3. Select a category (for example, My Music or My Playlists). Tap and hold the item that
you want to play (such as a song, album, or artist name), then tap Play.
Note
To play a file that is stored on your device but is not in a library, on the Library screen, tap Menu
> Open File. Tap and hold the item that you want to play (such as a file or a folder), then tap
Play.
To play an item on a network
Use the Open URL command to play a song or video that is stored on the Internet or on a
network server.
1. If you are not on the Library screen, tap Menu > Library.
2. Tap Menu > Open URL.
118 Experiencing Multimedia
3. Do one of the following:
Note
•
In the URL box, enter a network address.
•
In the History box, tap a URL that you have previously used.
To play an item on a network, you must be connected to a network. For more information about
creating a remote connection between your device and a network, see Connections Help on your
device.
Copy files to your device
Use the latest version of the desktop Player (Windows Media Player 10 or later) to
synchronize digital media files to your device (instead of dragging a file from a folder on your
PC to a folder on your device, for example). Using the desktop Player ensures that licenses
are copied with protected files.
Always synchronize the files to a storage card that is inserted into your device. Do not
synchronize to a storage card that is inserted into a storage card reader. In addition, do not
synchronize to the internal storage location (RAM) in your device. For more information
about synchronizing files to mobile devices, see desktop Player Help on the PC.
Note
Audio files copy faster if the desktop Player is configured to automatically set the quality level for
audio files copied to your device. For more information, see desktop Player Help on the PC.

Solutions
My device cannot
dial out or
receive calls.
• Your location may not be within network coverage area. Move to the
coverage area and try again.
How can I quickly
find a contact

Start entering the initial letters of the contact you want to call, and the system
will automatically search, sort, and display the contact entries from the SIM
card, from Contacts, and the phone numbers from Call History (including
incoming, outgoing, and missed calls). Then, you can select the desired
number or contact from the filtered list to dial.

• During a call, tap Speaker On, or press and hold TALK until the
speakerphone turns on. The Speakerphone icon (
) appears in the title
bar.
Why is there no
signal upon SIM
card insertion?
• Make sure the SIM card is installed properly.
• Make sure the phone is not in Flight Mode. Tap the Antenna icon and turn off
the Flight Mode.
• To turn off the speakerphone, tap Speaker Off, or press and hold TALK again
until the speakerphone turns off.
• The device could be SIM locked to a network. Contact your service provider
for assistance.

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 (
) 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 centre, household waste disposal service, shop from where you purchased the equipment, or
manufacturer of the equipment.
