Differences between the unregistered (free) version and the registered version of 2dphone
Both the unregistered (free) version and the registered version of 2dphone have no time limits; you can use either version and send SMS messages as long as you wish. Many features are not available to the unregistered (free) version, such as:
· Exporting SMS messages to PDA MemoPad,
· Downloading mobile phone numbers and PDA address book,
· Adding custom numbers and setting of preferences, etc.
The unregistered (free) version of 2dphone is basically intended to let you test on your PDA and mobile phone the basic functions of 2dphone. After testing for compatibility, please purchase your registered copy of 2dphone 2.5 Professional.

Basic 2dphone Use – Compose SMS Messages
Step 1. - Enter the addressee phone number
Enter the addressee phone number in the Text Box to the right of the “To:” label. The number should ALWAYS include the international prefix (for example, +44 for the UK, +49 for Germany, + 39 for Italy, + 46 for Sweden, + 1 for the US, etc.) IF YOU ARE USING AN UNREGISTERED (FREE) VERSION of 2dphone, you cannot set a default international prefix and must enter the prefix manually.
For registered users, 2dphone automatically adds the default international prefix, if no international prefix is found. (e.g. 034011111 becomes (+international prefix) 34011111). Again this can be changed by REGISTERED USERS ONLY. If you enter, for instance, + 9722223333, there will be no change at all since there is an international number prefix (+972 in this case).
Step 2. – Enter the SMS message text
Enter your SMS text in the large text area in the middle of the screen. Your text cannot exceed 160 characters (this is a SMS standard limitation), so if you need to send more text you need to send the first part, and then write a new SMS or modify the one you have just sent.
Step 3. – (Optional) – Mark the status checkbox to receive confirmation of SMS delivery from SMSC. This service is available from the SMSC, it may be not active worldwide.
Step 4. – (Optional) - Send SMS messages to email addresses. Check the eM checkbox to enable this feature. Enter the number provided by your carrier with a “+” prefix (no international prefix required, e.g. if the number is 49696, enter +49696). In the body of the message enter the required addressee (e.g. “email” 121333444@telecom.com and the rest of the message). Carriers may have different formats, please refer to the carrier’s specifications.
Step 5. – Send SMS
Once you are happy with your message, make sure that the IrDA port is activated on your mobile and tap the Send SMS button. 2dphone will connect with your mobile and send the SMS message. When done, your SMS message will be displayed in the menu->View->View SMS. You can use the arrows to scroll between the sent SMS messages. Note that if the SMS message was correctly sent, on the bottom you will see “Sent: OK”, if not an error will be displayed.

Use 2dphone Book for up to 9999 contacts 2dphone Book list shows your contacts sorted (case sensitive) by first name. It also shows you the origin of each contact and the cellular phone number of the contact. You can find contacts by typing the first few letters of the contact’s first name. 2dphone Book also shows you the total number of contacts in the database. You can also scroll through your contact list page by page. The 2dphone Book has been expanded to handle up to 9999 contacts.
Download and merge all contacts/phone numbers to 2dphone Book from: PDA Address Book, mobile SIM phone list, and mobile MEM phone list. You can merge data into 2dphone Book from three sources: your PDA’s address book, your selected mobile phone’s SIM card, and your selected mobile phone’s memory (MEM). To import data from one of these three sources tap on the merge button for that source. When merging from your PDA’s address book, 2dphone Professional only downloads those contacts that have a cellular phone number. This process enables you select recipients for your SMS messages from a comprehensive list of all your contacts.
Update mobile SIM phone list and/or mobile MEM phone list to reflect changes made in 2dphone Book. This view of a 2dphone Book contact entry highlights how 2dphone is aware of the origin of each contact. In this case the contact was downloaded from the SIM of a Nokia 6210. 2dphone allows you to modify and upload this contact back to the phone (“Upload”) or to a new location (“Upload to…”). Changes made to this entry will be saved to 2dphone Book as well.
When viewing a single contact entry in 2dphone Book, the application displays the original source of the contact, which can be one of the following:
1. PDA (The entry was originally downloaded and merged from your PDA Address Book to 2dphone)
2. 2dp (The entry was inserted directly in 2dphone Professional)
3. SIM (The entry was originally downloaded and merged from your mobile phone’s SIM phone list)
4. MEM (The entry was originally downloaded and merged from your mobile phone’s MEM phone list)If the contact entry was originally downloaded and merged from your mobile phone’s SIM or from your mobile phone’s MEM, it is possible to send that entry back to the selected mobile phone, in its original memory position, by tapping on the “Update” button. 2dphone will send the information to the selected phone and will update the entry found in the selected mobile phone. Entries are matched using the memory position so it is important to be sure not to overwrite the wrong entry on your phone. This can only happen if, since your last merge operation, you have replaced the contact in that memory position with another contact.

Add any contact and phone number from 2dphone Book to mobile SIM phone list and/or mobile MEM phone list.
The add feature is similar to the update feature described above and it is used when a contact entry found in 2dphone Book does not exist in the selected phone. This feature is invoked by tapping on the “Upload New” button when viewing an individual contact entry. Depending on the information available, after tapping on the “Upload New” button, the application will ask you where you want to upload the contact entry (SIM or MEM) and will show you the next available memory position where the contact will be inserted. In essence, this process duplicates a contact entry in 2dphone Book to your selected mobile phone.

Find 2dphone Book contacts
When viewing your list of 2dphone Book contacts, it is possible to search for a particular entry without scrolling the entire list. Tap next to the “Find” label and enter the first few characters of the contact you want to find. 2dphone will jump to the first matching entry. Please note that 2dphone performs a case sensitive search.

Edit and save entries in 2dphone Book
When viewing an individual 2dphone Book contact entry you can modify the name and/or cellular phone number and save changes to 2dphone Book.

Delete Contact entries in 2dphone Book
