How do I soft-reset the device?

Use the stylus to press the button behind the hole at the left side of the device.

How do I hard reset the device?

With the first release of the OS (REL_IRIS_070412.1_UK), this needs to be done the following way:
Soft-reset the device and then press-n-keep the power button for 10 seconds. Then release it again. You will have to do the re-aligning again.

If the software is newer than this, the following should be done:
Soft-reset the device and then press-n-keep the power button for 3 seconds. A blue screen will show, after which the user should follow-up the asked questions. Depending of the choice, the re-alignment needs to be done.

What is the battery lifetime of the device?

Talking time: 4 hours
Standby time: 150 hours

What are the environmental specs of the H16?

Operating Temperatures:

Non charging: 0 to +45 degree C (20 to 80 % RH)
Charging: +5 to 40 degree C (20 to 80 % RH)

Storage Temperatures:

With Battery:
At Shipment: -10 to +45 degree C (85 % RH max)
At Steady State: -10 to +60 degree C (85% RH max)

I cannot install an application! The device won’t let me...

Please change the registry keys
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\Policies\Policies\0000101a] to 1 (questions whether to run or not)
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\Policies\Policies\00001001] to 1
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\Policies\Policies\00001005] to 40
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\Policies\Policies\00001017] to 144
Now, perform a soft-reset.
Now the OS will ask if you want to install the application or not (first key), and run “unsave” applications.

How can I get the GPS Intermediate driver to work on the H16?

This driver is only used if multiple applications should use the (Bluetooth) GPS receiver at the same time. Otherwise, the configured (Bluetooth) COM port can be used to access the GPS information.

Before using the tool, this MSDN article should be read and understood first.
1. On the desktop, open Start->All Programs->Microsoft Visual Studio 2005->Visual Studio Remote Tools->Remote Registry Editor
2. Connect to your Windows Mobile device in the Remote Registry Editor
3. Find the path: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ControlPanel\GPS Settings
4. Delete any "Redirect" or "Hide" keys under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ControlPanel\GPS Settings.

I have troubles connecting the device to my PC.

These problems may be caused by ActiveSync or Windows Mobile Device Center.

I want to import my own certificates!

Some certificates can be executed from the explorer. This will import them to the OS.
Other certificates need some more handling to be imported, or applications need to be created. Please read the following web site. This person created a generic and easy to use application for importing such certificates.
