Global System for Mobile Communication (GSM) Pocket PCs will allow the importing of any SIM contacts into the Contacts application and will make all SIM data available.
Following are some configuration notes for your Windows Mobile-based Pocket PC:
Make sure you use ActiveSync version 3.7 to synchronize your Windows Mobile 2003 device with Outlook on your Windows desktop. Enter some contact names with phone numbers into Outlook so you can see how they become integrated into the telephony capabilities on the device.
Windows Mobile 2003 has four modes:
Standby. The signal is on but the device is off.
All on. The device is on and the signal for voice or data is being used.
All off. The signal and the device are off.
Pocket PC only. The signal is off but the device is on.
We advise referring back to the system requirements noted in the Windows Mobile 2003 software for Pocket PC reviewers guide. Windows Mobile 2003 requirements also apply to Pocket PCs with integrated voice and data capabilities.
Turn on the device, tap on the aerial (antenna) icon in the menu bar, and tap on Turn phone on. The phone will search for your network, and a signal strength indicator will appear next to the aerial icon. Tap on the icon again to bring up a notification bubble showing how you are connected. You will see a “G” if General Packet Radio Services (GPRS) is active, a new option to configure connection settings, and a button to turn off the phone.
General (lot. generalis - umumiy, bosh) - qurolli kuchlardagi harbiy unvon (daraja). Dastlab, 16-a.da Fransiyada joriy qilingan. Rossiyada 17-a.ning 2-yarmidan maʼlum. Oʻzbekiston qurolli kuchlarida G.
A simplified and enhanced wireless experience is a key part of the Windows Mobile 2003 experience. If your account includes wireless data service, you’ll also need to set up access to wireless data on the device via Connection Manager.
From the aerial icon, tap on Settings. Under My ISP, select Add a new modem connection. This section is used to determine how your device connects to the Internet.
Ready for high-speed networks: Pocket PC’s data applications (such as MSN Messenger and Pocket Internet Explorer) can take advantage of the faster transfer rate and always-on state of packet data services such as GPRS.
Pocket PC extends the personalization and customization to the phone application. Here are some ways to customize the phone:
Ring or vibrate? Once on the phone dialer screen, tap on Tools and choose Options to bring up a tabbed preference screen. The first tab allows you to choose your ring tone, vibrating alert preferences and SIM Lock. (SIM Lock is a PIN number that must be entered for the SIM to be activated when inserted into a phone. Not all SIMs require a lock code.)
Custom ring tones. Windows Mobile 2003 offers ring-tone enhancement, through its support of Windows Media 9 Audio and MIDI ring tones. In addition, the Windows Mobile-based Pocket PC device comes with a number of standard ring tones, all of which are WAV files. You can add your own ring tones by copying files to the Rings folder.
From ActiveSync, choose Explore.
Tap on My Pocket PC to go to the root directory.
Choose the Windows folder and then Rings.
Copy the WAV files here, and they will show up in the Ring tone menu in the Options screen.
Now you can choose your own ring tone from the pull-down menu.
With the new Call Barring feature, incoming and outgoing calls (e.g., international calls) can be monitored and/or blocked from reaching and originating from the phone.
Advanced volume controls. Windows Mobile 2003 offers separate phone and PDA volume controls so you can further customize your volume settings. Also, with a new Mute button, you can mute a call in progress, without turning off the sounds on your phone.
Call Barring. With the new Call Barring feature, incoming and outgoing calls (e.g., international calls) can be monitored and/or blocked from reaching and originating from the phone.
