HP iPAQ rw6818 and rw6828 Multimedia Messenger - Setting Up Your HP iPAQ

Use the following steps to quickly set up your HP iPAQ and connect it to your personal computer. The illustrations in the previous sections display the specific location of the HP iPAQ components.
Step 1: Remove the battery cover and slide in the SIM
To remove the battery cover, slide the battery cover down and away from the HP iPAQ.
  note:
If the battery is already installed, remove it before inserting the SIM card. The SIM card is provided by a mobile phone service provider. The SIM card may already be preinstalled in your HP iPAQ.
  1. With your fingernail, pull the SIM card holder up.
  2. Slide the SIM card into the SIM card holder.
      note:
    Be sure that the metal contacts are facing down and that the notched corner is in the correct position.
  3. Push the SIM card holder back into its original position.
Step 2: Install the battery and replace the battery cover
  1. Align the battery connectors on the battery with the housing pins in the battery compartment and insert the battery.
  2. Slide the battery cover on until it clicks into place.
Step 3: Charge the battery
  caution:
To avoid damaging your HP iPAQ or the AC Adapter, be sure all connectors are properly aligned before connecting.
The battery provides power for your HP iPAQ to operate. Your HP iPAQ comes with a mini-USB synchronization cable, which you must use to charge the device. It takes from 2 to 4 hours to fully charge the battery.
  1. Insert the USB end of the mini-USB cable into the port on the AC Adapter.
  2. Connect the AC Adapter to an electrical outlet.
  3. Connect the mini-USB cable to the charging/communications port on your HP iPAQ. The cable connector only fits one way, so do not force it. If the connector does not insert easily, turn it over.
      note:
    Whenever a replacement battery is inserted into your HP iPAQ, press and hold the Power button for at least two seconds or attach an AC Adapter to turn on your device.
Step 4: Insert the Getting Started CD into the CD drive of your personal computer
Use the Getting Started CD to complete the setup of your HP iPAQ and to synchronize the HP iPAQ with your personal computer. The HP Install Wizard automatically opens, and the application starts to run.
  note:
Do you have administrative rights on your personal computer? If not, you may have problems installing the applications from the Getting Started CD. Your administrator needs to install the applications.
Step 5: Follow the on-screen instructions on your personal computer
The HP Install Wizard installs:
  • Microsoft Outlook 2002
  • Microsoft ActiveSync
  • Other optional software applications
Microsoft ActiveSync
Connect your HP iPAQ when instructed.
  1. Connect the USB end of the synchronization cable to a USB port on your personal computer.
  2. Connect the mini-USB end of the synchronization cable to the charging/communications port on the bottom of your HP iPAQ. The connector only fits one way so do not force it. If the connector does not insert easily, turn it over.
When instructed, check the items you want to synchronize between your HP iPAQ and your personal computer. 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 may 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.
To change available synchronization settings, select the type of information and tap Settings.
  note:
Does your company use a Microsoft Exchange server? If not, during setup, uncheck the box marked Synchronize directly with a server running Microsoft Exchange Server. To do this now, you need to have the server address and your logon credentials in order to sync to your personal computer.
After completing the ActiveSync installation, return to the HP Install Wizard for more software programs and additional product and setup information.
Step 6: Set up your HP iPAQ
When you turn on your HP iPAQ for the first time, follow the instructions on the screen. Use the stylus to enter information. (See the product component illustrations for the location of the stylus.)
