Re: Not Loading Up

You may be in need for a ROM update/reinstall. It is pretty easy to do that. You can either go at HP's web site and download a ROM update for your specific model. Make shure you select your operating sistem rigt. Or you can browse the internet for a specific ROM update for your model. I recomand the HP site, and if you have problems regarding the ROM update process, or the ROM and OS version you need, please reply here and I'll guide you throught. Good luck.

You may try switching off your phone and removing your battery for 20 + minutes. Purchasing a new sim won't help you out.

Do you have sufficient memory on your iPAQ? Check your memory settings, also check running programs tab, maybe you have too many programs still running in the background causing the latency. Try a soft reset (stops all running programs in the background) or end task on them, then see if it still lags.

Unresolved Items when synching

Try the following.... Open Active sync on your PC. Double Click on Calendar. Change the settings such that it syncs only 0 past and 0 future appointments. SYNC (this will clear all calendar items on the IPAQ) Now go back in to those Calendar settings, and set it back to the default which is 2 past weeks and All Future appointments. SYNC (this will now reload all appointments into your Ipaq)

If you did a "hard" reset and it doesn't work, it's a hardware problem... Send it in for repair.
