HP iPAQ Handhelds - Synchronizing HP iPAQ with a Computer

Synchronizing your HP iPAQ using a USB Cable or a USB Cradle

Use the USB cable or cradle provided by your device manufacturer to synchronize your device to your computer.
To synchronize using a cable or a cradle, follow these steps:
  1. Insert one end of the cable to an available USB port on your computer.
  2. Insert the other end of the cable to the device, or the cradle for your iPAQ.
  3. Windows Mobile Device Center should connect automatically to your iPAQ.

Synchronizing your iPAQ using Bluetooth

The HP iPAQ comes with built-in Bluetooth technology that allows short-range connections and provides fast, reliable, and secure wireless communication. Before you begin, ensure that both your computer and your device are Bluetooth-enabled and that you have logged on to the computer using an administrator account.
Follow the steps to connect and synchronize your iPAQ to the computer using Bluetooth.
note:
Instructions to tap UI elements are intended for users of touch-screen-enabled devices only.

On the iPAQ:

  1. If you have never attached your iPAQ to the computer using a USB cable, do so. After Windows Mobile Device Center (WMDC) starts, disconnect your iPAQ.
  2. On the iPAQ, click or tap Start > Programs > ActiveSync.
  3. In ActiveSync, click or tap Menu, then click or tap Connect via Bluetooth.
  4. When asked if you would like to set up a partnership, click or tap Yes.
note:
On some devices, you may have to click or tap Add new device.
  1. When the name of the computer appears in the list, select it and click Next.
  2. Enter a passcode when prompted, and then click Next.

On the Computer:

  1. When prompted that a Bluetooth device is attempting to connect with the computer, click To allow this connection, click this message.
  2. In the Add Bluetooth Device wizard, enter the same passcode that you entered on your device, and then click Next.

On the iPAQ:

  1. Ensure that the check box for the ActiveSync service appears and is checked.
  2. Complete the Bluetooth Wizard.

On the Computer:

  1. Complete the Add Bluetooth Device Wizard.

On the iPAQ:

  1. In ActiveSync, click or tap Menu, and then click or tap Connect via Bluetooth.
  2. To disconnect at any point after this, click or tap Menu, then click or tap Disconnect.

On the Computer:

  1. Click Start, click Control Panel, click Hardware and Sound, and click Bluetooth Devices. If your computer does not have built-in Bluetooth, make sure your USB Bluetooth adapter is attached.
  2. Click the Options tab.
  3. Select the Allow Bluetooth devices to find this computer check box.
  4. Click OK.

Changing the connection settings

Network connection on your computer can be changed from the Connection Settings dialog box. Your HP iPAQ can use this network connection when it is connected to Windows Mobile Device Center.

To connect to a network or the Internet

  1. Plug the USB cable (cradle) of your HP iPAQ to the computer to start the Windows Mobile Device Center automatically.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • If you have not already set up a Windows Mobile partnership between this device and the computer, click Connect without setting up.
    • If you have already set up a Windows Mobile partnership, click Mobile Device Settings.
  3. Click Change Connection Settings.
  4. In the This computer is connected to list, select Automatic to use the most common settings, or select which specific device connection should use the network connection on the computer to "pass through" Windows Mobile Device Center.

Securing your HP iPAQ using a PIN

For security purposes, the SIM Personal Identification Number (PIN) protects your iPAQ against unauthorized access. You can assign a password to protect your iPAQ and information. Your first PIN comes from your wireless service provider. You will need to enter the PIN when you first open Windows Mobile Device Center. You can also save the PIN on your computer so that you do not have to enter the PIN the next time you connect your iPAQ with your computer.
But if you have an iPAQ that contains a security setting from a corporate deployment of Microsoft Exchange Server, your company may require that you enter the PIN each time you connect your device with your computer. If you have any questions about this setting, contact the system administrator for your company.
