Re: Complete Verizon TouchPro 2 Help & How-To

Display:

* How do I adjust the text size on my device? Go to Start > Settings >All Settings > System (tab) > Screen > Text Size (tab). Modify the text size as desired.

* How do I adjust the backlight on my device? Go to Start > Settings >All Settings > System (tab) > Power > Backlight (tab)

* When navigating programs, my device is not responding accurately to stylus taps. What should I do? Recalibrate the screen. Tap Start > Settings >All Settings > System Tab > Screen, tap Align Screen and follow the on-screen instructions to calibrate the screen.

* My display/screen's image is inverted, faded or discolored, what can I do to fix it? Perform a soft reset by powering the unit off, pressing the reset button under the battery cover, or removing the battery. If the screen issue persists, back up all information on your device and perform a Hard Reset.

NOTE: A hard reset will remove all information from your device. Make sure to backup all information before performing a hard reset.

* How do I extend the backlight time on my device? Tap Start > Settings >All Settings > System (tab) > Power > Advanced (tab). Select a longer backlight timeout from the drop-down list.

* Something is wrong with my display; it goes dark after a few minutes of inactivity but my device is still powered on. What is happening? The device is going into hibernation. The device is still powered on and can receive calls, emails, and messages, but the screen has gone to sleep to preserve power. To "wake" the device, simply tap the backlight button on the top right edge of the device.

General and Other:

* How can I optimize the performance of my device? The main reason for device performance decrease is the lack of available memory. You will want to free up more memory so that the device can return to normal function.

This device offers a few options for managing memory.

• There is a shortcut for the Task Manager on the upper right corner of the Today screen that allows you to view programs that are currently running and gives you the option to shut them down to free up memory.
• There is also an X-Button application that allows you to choose what action is taken when the X button is tapped (minimize or close). To access and change these settings, tap the Task Manager shortcut and choose Options (wrench icon) from the drop down. The settings for the X-button can be found on the Button tab.

Note: When the "X" Button is not set to end running programs, tapping the "X" button will only minimize the program and it will still be running in the background using memory and draining battery. This allows you to quickly multi-task between applications.

* How do I link my Facebook account? Tap or press Start > People > All Contacts > Me (My contact card). Scroll to the bottom and tap the Link

* How do I connect to an external display? You need an HTC TV Out cable to be able to connect your device to an external display. The HTC TV Out cable is sold separately.

* How do I remove and replace the back cover? You need to temporarily remove the stylus to be able to remove or replace the back cover. Firmly hold the device with both hands and the front panel facing down. Push the back cover up with your thumbs until it disengages from the device and then slide it up to remove.

* What does a Hard Reset do and how is it performed? A hard reset removes all information from your device and returns it to a state just like it has never been used before. All contacts, messages, emails, 3rd party applications, etc. will need to be reinstalled after performing a hard reset. To perform a hard reset, navigate to Start > Settings >All Settings > System (tab) > Clear Storage. Follow the on-screen prompts to complete. This process will take 5-10 minutes

* How do I use the zoom bar? While browsing websites using Opera, viewing an image in Album, or using other applications that support zooming you can slide your finger back and forth between the + and - icons to zoom in and out.

* When should I perform a Hard Reset? A Hard Reset should only be performed after all other troubleshooting options have been exhausted or if you want to remove everything from your unit at the same time.

* Is there a Select All option on the device? To select all files, select one file and then tap Menu > Edit > Select All.

* How do I move files on my device? Tap Start > All Programs > File Explorer and search for the file you want to move. Tap and hold on the file to open a menu, and then tap Cut. Navigate to the target folder where you want to move the file. On the target folder, tap and hold on an empty space, then tap Paste.

* How do I return to the Home Screen? Press End to return to the Home Screen.

* Where is the Home button? The Home button has been combined with End. To go to the Home screen press End.

* How do I view All Programs? Tap or press Start > All Programs.

* How do I view All Settings? Tap or press Start > Settings >All Settings.

* What is the difference between the Contacts application and People? The Contacts application can still be found by tapping Start > All Programs > Contacts or you can use the revamped and enhanced TouchFLO 3D interface which is called People.

* How can I lock the keys and screen of my device? Tap or press Start > Settings >All Settings > Personal (tab) > Buttons > End Key (tab). Choose Lock device in the radio buttons and tap OK. Press and hold the End key to lock the keys and screen.

* Where is the Start menu? The Start menu has been replaced with the Start screen. When you press or tap Start you will be taken to the newly designed Start screen.

* How do I access the Notifications screen? Tap the icon bar on the top of the screen to access the Notifications screen.

* How do I soft reset my device? What is a soft reset? A soft reset is similar to rebooting a computer. You will not lose any data unless you have unsaved work open. To perform a soft reset, simply insert the stylus into the reset hole under the battery cover.

GPS:

* Does the HTC Touch Pro2 have internal GPS? Yes, the HTC Touch Pro2 supports GPS. You can use GPS with the included VZNav application or most other GPS-enabled applications.

* What is QuickGPS? QuickGPS can speed up the time for determining your GPS position by downloading the latest satellite data via an Internet connection.

* What is aGPS? aGPS is Assisted Global Positioning System. It was introduced to enhance performance. With conventional GPS systems, it is often difficult to provide reliable positions under poor signal conditions, for example, if you are surrounded by tall buildings (as a result of multipath) or if the satellite signals are weakened when you are indoors or under a tree. Some newer receivers fare better. The aGPS system, consisting of an integrated GPS receiver and network components, boosts performance beyond that of the same receiver in a stand-alone mode.

* What is GPS? GPS (Global Positioning System) is a satellite-based radio navigation system that consists of three segments - the satellite constellation, ground control network, and user equipment. People use GPS on their mobile devices with navigation software applications such as VZNavigator.

Video format supported: WMV, ASF, MP4, AVI, and RM Real Media.
Audio format supported: AMR, AAC, WAV, WMA, MP3

If your device is not recognizing the files, your library may need to be updated. Go to Start > Windows Media > Menu > Update library. This will start a scan that will look for all audio/video files on the device and update the library to show all compatible files.

Power and Battery:

* How long should it take to charge my battery? Your battery can take up to 3 hours to fully charge using the AC charger. It will take much longer using the USB as that is the trickle charge function.

* Why does it take so long to charge my device using the USB? The USB cable acts as a trickle charger so it will take longer than if you were using an AC charger. While the USB will work, it is recommended to use the AC charger, especially if the battery level reaches 10% or below.

* How can I optimize my battery’s performance? There are a few settings that you can change on your device that will preserve battery life.

•Turn off Bluetooth or Wi-Fi if you are not actively using it
oDisable Bluetooth: Tap Start > Comm Manager then tap Bluetooth
oDisable Wi-Fi: Tap Start > Comm Manager then tap Wi-Fi

NOTE: The End/Hang-up button is the power button on the Touch Pro2 for Verizon. The button on the top edge of the device simply controls the backlight.

This will enable the microSD card inside the Touch Pro2 to be utilized like a USB thumb drive.

* How do I install Microsoft ActiveSync/Windows Mobile Device Center (WMDC)? Insert the "Getting Started" CD that came with your device into your PC and follow the prompts.

Note: The disk will detect what operating system you have and what sync software you have loaded. If you already have ActiveSync installed on your PC, it will not give you an option to install it from the disk (same for WMDC) until it has been removed from your PC.

* I lost the CD that came with my device, where can I get a copy of ActiveSync/WMDC? ActiveSync is a free download that can be found on the Microsoft website:

System:

* How do I perform a soft reset?Perform a soft (normal) reset to clear all active program memory and shut down all programs. This is useful when your device is running slower than normal, or a program is not performing properly. If a soft reset is performed when programs are running, unsaved work is lost. Pull out the stylus and remove the back cover. Use the stylus tip to press the RESET button located at the upper-left side of the open back panel.

Re: Complete Verizon TouchPro 2 Help & How-To

Safety Information

Do Not Use The PC Functions Of Your Pocket PC While Driving Or Walking

Never use the personal computer functions of your device while driving an automobile or any other moving
vehicle. Always pull out of traffic and come to a stop in a legally permissible and safe location before using your
device. Failure to do so could result in serious bodily injury in a traffic accident.
When driving:
  • Always secure your device in its leather pouch.
  • Never place your device on the passenger seat or anyplace else in the car where it can become a
    projectile during a collision or stop.
  • An air bag inflates with great force. DO NOT place objects, including either installed or portable
    wireless equipment, in the area over the air bag or in the air bag deployment area. If in-vehicle wireless
    equipment is improperly installed and the air bag inflates, serious injury could result.
Never store or transport flammable liquids, gases or explosive materials in the same compartment of your
automobile as the device or any of its accessories, as possible sparking in the device could cause ignition or
explosion.
Never use your device while walking. Usage while walking could result in bodily injury caused by inattention to
automobile traffic or other pedestrian hazards.

Using The Phone Function Of Your Pocket PC While Driving Is Extremely Dangerous

Talking on or using your device while driving is extremely dangerous and is illegal in some states. Remember,
safety comes first. Check the laws and regulations on the use of phones in the areas where you drive. Always
obey them.
If you must use the phone function while driving, please:
  • Give full attention to driving. Driving safely is your first responsibility.
  • Use hands-free operation and/or one-touch, speed dialing, and auto answer modes.
  • Pull off the road and park before making or answering a call.

When Using Your Device Near Other Electronic Devices

Your wireless handheld portable device is a low power radio transmitter and receiver. When it is ON, it receives
and also sends out radio frequency (RF) signals.
Most modern electronic equipment is shielded from RF energy. However, certain electronic equipment may not
be shielded against the RF signals from your wireless device; therefore, use of your device must be restricted in
certain situations.
In addition, the computer portion of your device produces low levels of RF energy due to the generation of
digital timing pulses by its clock oscillator circuits. Your device has been equipped with internal shielding
to minimize stray emissions of RF energy. However, use of the computer functions of your device must be
restricted in certain situations.

Battery Safety

Your device uses a removable and rechargeable lithium ion battery. Please contact customer service for
assistance should you need a replacement battery.

DO's:
  • Only use the battery and charger approved by the manufacturer.
  • Only use the battery for its original purpose.
  • Try to keep batteries in a temperature between 41°F (5°C) and 95°F (35°C).
  • If the battery is stored in temperatures above or below the recommended range, give it time to warm up
    or cool down before using.
  • Completely drain the battery before recharging. It may take one to four days to completely drain.
  • Store the discharged battery in a cool, dark, and dry place.
  • Purchase a new battery when its operating time gradually decreases after fully charging.
  • Properly dispose of the battery according to local regulations.
DON'Ts
  • Don’t attempt to disassemble the battery – it is a sealed unit with no serviceable parts.
  • Don’t expose the battery terminals to any other metal object (e.g., by carrying it in your pocket or purse
    with other metallic objects such as coins, clips and pens). This can short circuit and critically damage the
    battery.
  • Don’t leave the battery in hot or cold temps. Otherwise, it could significantly reduce the capacity and
    lifetime of the battery.
  • Don’t dispose of the battery into a fire.
Lithium ion batteries are recyclable. When you replace the removable battery, please request the repair center
to recycle the battery in accordance with RBRC standards. When disposing of the battery by yourself, please call
RBRC at (800) 822-8837 for proper disposal tips.
Never touch any fluid that might leak from the built-in battery. Such liquid when in contact with the eyes or
skin, could cause injury to the skin or eyes. Should the liquid come into contact with the eyes, irrigate the
eyes thoroughly with clean water and immediately seek medical attention. In the event the liquid comes into
contact with the skin or clothing, wash it away immediately with clean water.

General Safety

Your pocket PC is a high quality piece of equipment. Before operating, read all instructions and cautionary
markings on the product, battery and adapter/charger.
Failure to follow the directions below could result in serious bodily injury and/or property damage due to
battery liquid leakage, fire or rupture.
DO NOT use or store this equipment in a place where it will be exposed to high temperatures, such as near an
open flame or heat-emitting equipment.
DO NOT drop your device or subject it to severe shock. When not using, lay down the unit to avoid possible
damage due to instability.
DO NOT expose this equipment to rain or spilled beverages.
DO NOT use unauthorized accessories.
DO NOT disassemble the device or its accessories. If service or repair is required, return unit to an authorized
cellular service center. If the unit is disassembled, the risk of electric shock or fire may result.
Never allow metallic objects, such as staples and paper clips, to get into the inside of your device.
Never touch the liquid that might leak from a broken liquid crystal display. Contact with this liquid could cause
a skin rash. If the crystal display liquid should come into contact with the skin or clothing, wash it immediately
with clean water.
In the event that the device emits an unusual odor or sound or generates smoke, immediately disconnect the
AC adapter from the power outlet, then detach the battery.
