Backup and Other Options

One basic configuration step to take on your PDA is to enter your contact information in the Owner fields of the device. On a Palm, you can find these fields under Preferences, and on a Pocket PC, you can find them under the Personal tab. Making this kind of information available makes it much easier to return the device if it should become lost. If the person who finds it doesn't even have contact information for the device, the chances of it being returned to its rightful owner are close to zero. Having your name and phone number appear on the screen should be enough information for someone to reach you. Alternatively, if your PDA is stored in a case, you might even tape your business card to the case. That way, even if the person doesn't know how to turn the device on, he will at least see some kind of contact information.

Pocket PC has a feature that allows you to display owner information when the device is turned on, even if you have activated password protection. Although Palm owner information is stored in Preferences, if you turn on the password lock-out feature, a Palm device displays owner information along with a password request when activated.
