CAUTION: Safety Instructions

Use the following safety guidelines to help ensure your own personal safety and to help protect your device and working environment from potential damage.

General

Do not attempt to service the device yourself unless you are a trained service technician. Always follow installation instructions closely.

If you use an extension power cable with your AC adapter, ensure that the total ampere rating of the products plugged in to the extension power cable does not exceed the ampere rating of the extension cable.

Do not push objects into openings of your device. Doing so can cause fire or electric shock by shorting out interior components.

Keep your device away from radiators and heat sources. Avoid placing loose papers underneath your device; do not place your device in a closed-in wall unit or on a bed, sofa, or rug.

Place the AC adapter in a ventilated area, such as a desk top or on the floor, when you use it to run the device or to charge the battery. Do not cover the AC adapter with papers or other items that will reduce cooling; also, do not use the AC adapter inside a carrying case.

12 CAUTION: Safety Instructions

The AC adapter may become hot during normal operation of your device. Use care when handling the adapter during or immediately after operation.

Do not use your device in a wet environment, for example, near a bath tub, sink, or swimming pool or in a wet basement.

If your device includes an integrated or optional modem, disconnect the modem cable if an electrical storm is approaching to avoid the remote risk of electric shock from lightning via the telephone line.

To help avoid the potential hazard of electric shock, do not connect or disconnect any cables or perform maintenance or reconfiguration of this product during an electrical storm. Do not use your device during an electrical storm unless all cables have been disconnected and the device is operating on battery power.

If your device includes a modem, the cable used with the modem should be manufactured with a minimum wire size of 26 American wire gauge (AWG) and an FCC-compliant RJ-11 modular plug.

Cards may become very warm during normal operation. Use care when removing cards after their continuous operation.

Before you clean your device, disconnect the device from the electrical outlet. Clean your device with a soft cloth dampened with water. Do not use liquid or aerosol cleaners, which may contain flammable substances.

CAUTION: Safety Instructions (continued)

CAUTION: Safety Instr uctions 13

Power

Use only the Dell-provided AC adapter approved for use with this device. Use of another AC adapter may cause a fire or explosion.

Before you connect the device to an electrical outlet, check the AC adapter voltage rating to ensure that the required voltage and frequency match the available power source.

To remove the device from all power sources, turn the device off, remove the battery pack, and disconnect the AC adapter from the electrical outlet.

To help prevent electric shock, plug the AC adapter and device power cables into properly grounded power sources. These power cables may be equipped with 3-prong plugs to provide an earth grounding connection. Do not use adapter plugs or remove the grounding prong from the power cable plug. If you use a power extension cable, use the appropriate type, 2-prong or 3-prong, to mate with the AC adapter power cable.

Be sure that nothing rests on your AC adapters power cable and that the cable is not located where it can be tripped over or stepped on. If you are using a multiple-outlet power strip, use caution when plugging the AC adapters power cable in to the power strip. Some power strips may allow you to insert the plug incorrectly. Incorrect insertion of the power plug could result in permanent damage to your device, as well as risk of electric shock and/or fire. Ensure that the ground prong of the power plug is inserted into the mating ground contact of the power strip.

14 CAUTION: Safety Instructions

Battery

Use only Dell battery modules that are approved for use with this device. Use of other types may increase the risk of fire or explosion.

Do not carry a battery pack in your pocket, purse, or other container where metal objects (such as car keys or paper clips) could short-circuit the battery terminals. The resulting excessive current flow can cause extremely high temperatures and may result in damage to the battery pack or cause fire or burns.

The battery poses a burn hazard if you handle it improperly. Do not disassemble it. Handle a damaged or leaking battery pack with extreme care. If the battery is damaged, electrolyte may leak from the cells and may cause personal injury.

Keep the battery away from children.

Do not store or leave your device or battery pack near a heat source such as a radiator, fireplace, stove, electric heater, or other heat-generating appliance or otherwise expose it to temperatures in excess of 60C (140F). When heated to excessive temperatures, battery cells could explode or vent, posing a risk of fire.

Do not dispose of your devices battery in a fire or with normal household waste. Battery cells may explode. Discard a used battery according to the manufacturers instructions or contact your local waste disposal agency for disposal instructions. Dispose of a spent or damaged battery promptly.

CAUTION: Safety Instructions (continued)

CAUTION: Safety Instr uctions 15

Air Travel

Certain Federal Aviation Administration regulations and/or airline-specific restrictions may apply to the operation of your Dell device while you are on board an aircraft. For example, such regulations/restrictions may prohibit the use of any personal electronic device (PED) that has the capacity for intentional transmission of radio frequency or other electromagnetic signals while on an aircraft.

In order to best comply with all such restrictions, if your Dell portable device is equipped with Dell TrueMobile or some other wireless communication device, please disable this device before you board the aircraft and follow all instructions provided by airline personnel with regard to such device.

Additionally, the use of any PED, such as a portable device, may be prohibited in aircraft during certain critical phases of flight, for example, takeoff and landing. Some airlines may further define the critical flight phase as any time the aircraft is below 3050 m (10,000 ft). Please follow the airlines specific instructions as to when the use of a PED is allowed.

EMC Instructions

Use shielded signal cables to ensure that you maintain the appropriate EMC classification for the intended environment. For parallel printers, a cable is available from Dell. If you prefer, you can order a cable from Dell at its worldwide website at www.dell.com.

Static electricity can harm electronic components inside your device. To prevent static damage, discharge static electricity from your body before you touch any of your devices electronic components, such as a memory module. You can do so by touching an unpainted metal surface.

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 periods and commas above the line.

For better recognition, try changing the zoom level to 300 percent using the Tools menu.

Write the letters of a word closely and leave big gaps between words so that the device can easily determine where words begin and end.

Hyphenated words, foreign words that use special characters such as accents, and some punctuation cannot be converted.

You cannot add written text to a word to change it after the word has been recognized. You must delete the written word and write the new word.

58 Using Microsoft ActiveSync

About ActiveSync You can synchronize the information on your computer with the information on your device with ActiveSync. Synchronization compares the data on your device with the data on your computer and updates both with the most recent information. For example:

Keep Microsoft Pocket Outlook data up-to-date by synchronizing your device with Microsoft Outlook data on your computer.

Synchronize Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel files between your device and your computer. Your files are automatically converted to the correct format.

NOTE: By default, ActiveSync does not automatically synchronize all types of information. You can change ActiveSync options to synchronize specific types of information.

With ActiveSync, you can also:

Back up and restore your device data.

Copy (rather than synchronize) files between your device and your computer.

Select a synchronization mode to control when synchronization occurs. For example, you can synchronize continuously or only when you select 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.

To synchronize your data, you need both the Microsoft Windows and Pocket PC versions of ActiveSync. You must install the Windows version of ActiveSync on your computer using the Dell Companion CD. The Pocket PC version is already installed on your device.

NOTE: Before connecting your device to a computer for the first time, ensure that you install ActiveSync on the computer from the Dell Companion CD.

Using Microsof t ActiveSync 59

Installing and Using ActiveSync To install ActiveSync:

1 Insert the Dell Companion CD.

2 Click the yellow triangle to access the main menu.

3 Click Start Here.

4 Click Install ActiveSync and follow the instructions on the screen.

After the installation is complete, the ActiveSync Setup Wizard helps you to connect your device to your computer, set up a partnership so that you can synchronize information between your device and your computer, and customize your synchronization settings. Your first synchronization process automatically begins when you complete the wizard.

During your first synchronization, information that was stored in Outlook on your computer is copied to Calendar, Contacts, and Tasks on your device.

After you set up ActiveSync and complete the first synchronization process, you can initiate synchronization from your device. To switch to ActiveSync on your device, tap the Start button and tap ActiveSync. If you have a wireless LAN card, you can synchronize remotely from your device.

To find information on using ActiveSync on your device, open ActiveSync on your device, tap the Start button, and then tap Help.

Synchronize e-mail messages using Exchange or Outlook on your computer.

Send and receive e-mail messages by connecting directly to an e-mail server through an ISP or a network.

Synchronizing E-Mail Messages

You can synchronize e-mail messages along with the rest of your data if you enable Inbox synchronization in ActiveSync. For information on enabling Inbox synchronization, see ActiveSync Help on your computer.

NOTE: You can also synchronize e-mail messages with your computer from a remote location. For more information, see "Getting Connected" on page 99.

During synchronization:

Connecting Directly to an E-Mail Server

In addition to synchronizing e-mail messages with your computer, you can send and receive e-mail messages by connecting to an e-mail server using a modem or network card connected to your device. You need to set up a remote connection to a network or an ISP, and a connection to your e-mail server. For more information, see "Getting Connected" on page 99.

When you connect to the e-mail server:

New messages are downloaded to the device Inbox folder.

Messages in the device Outbox folder are sent.

Messages that have been deleted on the e-mail server are removed from the device Inbox folder.

Messages that you receive directly from an e-mail server are linked to your e- mail server rather than to your computer. When you delete a message on your device, it is also deleted from the e-mail server the next time you connect depending on the settings you selected in ActiveSync.

When you are working online, you read and respond to messages while connected to the e-mail server. Messages are sent as soon as you tap Send, which saves space on your device.

After you have downloaded new message headers or partial messages, you can disconnect from the e-mail server and then decide which messages to download completely. The next time you connect, Inbox downloads the messages you have marked for retrieval and sends the messages you have composed.

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.

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

Scheduling and Communicating 71

When you connect to your e-mail server or synchronize with your computer, you receive by default:

Messages from the last 5 days

The first 100 lines of each new message

File attachments of less than 100 KB in size

The original messages remain on the e-mail server or your computer. You can mark the messages that you want to retrieve in full during your next synchronization or e-mail server connection. In the message list, tap and hold the message that you want to retrieve. On the pop-up menu, tap Mark for Download. The icons in the Inbox message list indicate message status.

4 Compose your message. To enter preset or frequently used messages, tap My Text and select a message.

5 Tap Send when you have finished the message.

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

Managing E-Mail Messages and Folders

By default, messages are displayed in one of five folders for each service you have created: Inbox, Deleted Items, Drafts, Outbox, or Sent Items. 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 options you have selected.To change the options, tap Tools in the message list and tap Options. On the Message tab, select your options.

To create a new folder, tap Tools, and tap Manage Folders. To move a message to another folder, tap and hold the message in the message list and tap Move to on the pop-up menu.

Folder Behavior With a Direct Connection to an E-Mail Server

The behavior of the folders you create depends on whether you use ActiveSync, POP3, or IMAP4.

If you use ActiveSync, e-mail messages in the Inbox folder in Outlook are automatically synchronized with your device. You can select to synchronize additional folders by designating them for ActiveSync. The folders you create and the messages you move are then mirrored on the server. For example, if you move 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 computer.

74 Scheduling and Communicating

If you use POP3 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 detects that the messages are missing from the device Inbox and deletes them from the server. This prevents you from having duplicate copies of a message. However, you no longer have access to messages that you move to folders created from anywhere except the device.

If you use IMAP4, the folders you create and the e-mail messages you move are mirrored on the server. Therefore, messages are available to you any time you connect to your e-mail server, whether it is from your device or computer. This synchronization of folders occurs whenever you connect to the server, create new folders, or rename/delete folders when connected.

Notifications You can set your device to remind you when you have something to do. For example, if you have set up an appointment in Calendar, a task with a due date in Tasks, or an alarm in Clock, you are notified in one of the following ways:

A message box appears on the screen.

A sound, which you can specify, is played.

A light flashes on your device.

To configure the reminders and sounds for your device:

1 Tap the Start button and tap Settings.

2 On the Personal tab, tap Sounds & Notifications.

Volume tab Adjust the volume and enable sounds.

Notifications tab Set notifications for specific events.

Replacement parts and systems are covered for the remaining period of the limited warranty for the product you bought. Dell owns all parts removed from repaired products.

What if I purchased a service contract?

If your service contract is with Dell, service will be provided to you under the terms of the service contract. Please refer to that contract for details on how to obtain service. Dell's service contracts can be found online at www.dell.ca or by calling Customer Care at 1-800- 847-4096.

How will you fix my product?

We use new and refurbished parts made by various manufacturers in performing warranty repairs and in building replacement parts and systems. Refurbished parts and systems are parts or systems that have been returned to Dell, some of which were never used by a customer. All parts and systems are inspected and tested for quality. Replacement parts and systems are covered for the remaining period of the limited warranty for the product you bought. Dell owns all parts removed from repaired products.

"Total Satisfaction" Return Policy (Canada Only)

If you are an end-user customer who bought new products directly from Dell, you may return them to Dell up to 30 days after you receive them for a refund or credit of the product purchase price.

In either case, the refund or credit will not include any shipping and handling charges shown on your packing slip or invoice and will be subject to a fifteen percent (15%) restocking fee, unless otherwise prohibited by law. If you are an organization that bought the products under a written agreement with Dell, the agreement may contain different terms for the return of products than specified by this policy.

To return products, you must call Dell Customer Service at 1-800-847-4096 to receive a Credit Return Authorization Number. To expedite the process of your refund or credit, Dell expects you to return the products to Dell in their original packaging within 5 days of the date that Dell issues the Credit Return Authorization Number.

Dell Software and Peripherals (Canada Only)

Third-Party Software and Peripherals Products

Similar to other resellers of software and peripherals, Dell does not warrant third-party products. Third-party software and peripheral products are covered by the warranties provided by the original manufacturer or publisher only. Third-party manufacturer warranties vary from product to product. Consult your product documentation for specific warranty information. More information may also be available from the manufacturer or publisher.

While Dell offers a wide selection of software and peripheral products, we do not specifically test or guarantee that all of the products we offer work with any or all of the various models of Dell computers, nor do we test or guarantee all of the products we sell on the hundreds of different brands of computers available today. If you have questions about compatibility, we recommend and encourage you to contact the third-party software and peripheral product manufacturer or publisher directly.

Dell-Branded Peripheral Products

Dell does provide a limited warranty for new Dell-branded peripheral products (products for which Dell is listed as the manufacturer) such as monitors, batteries, memory, docking stations, and projectors. To determine which limited warranty applies to the product you purchased, see the Dell packing slip or invoice and/or the product documentation that accompanied your product. Descriptions of Dell's limited warranties are described in preceding sections.

Return Policy

If you are an end-user customer who bought Dell Software and Peripherals products directly from a Dell company, you may return Dell Software and Peripherals products that are in as- new condition to Dell up to 30 days from the date on the packing slip or invoice for a refund of the product purchase price if already paid. This refund will not include any shipping and handling charges shown on your packing slip or invoice; you are responsible for those.

To return products, you must call Dell Customer Service at 1-800-387-5759 to receive a Credit Return Authorization Number. You must ship the Dell Software and Peripherals products back to Dell in their original manufacturer's packaging (which must be in as-new condition), prepay shipping charges, and insure the shipment or accept the risk of loss or damage during shipment.

To qualify for refund or replacement, returned products must be in as-new condition, software products must be unopened, and all of the manuals, floppy disk(s), CD(s), power cables, and other items included with a product must be returned with it.
