SOURCE: Can't use my pocket pc as a mobile phone

Hello Ric777, I would suspect the mainboard of your pda at first. But for the begining you should try to clean the contacts of your sim slot and check to see if all of them connect properly to the sim card. If all of them do connect properly, my second gues would be that the pda doesn't power on the sim card. Like memory cards sim's need to be powered first in order to work. Most pda that have this problem fail to initialise a sim because they can't suply the 3.3 or 2.7 volts needed due to a hardware mailfunction. However this test should be runned by a service center, they will have to dissasemble your pda in order to check these. In your case, you can make a hard reset and check the sim card pins in the pda. If this doesn't help, you will need service assistance. I'm sorry for not being able to help further. Good luck.

SOURCE: Hi Experts, Could you please help me with SD Card

Usually, and not to say this is going to solve your problem. I have always experienced when moving sd cards from device to device, most are not hot swapable. Meaning that you would have to format your sd card to make it work in your other device. NOTE; This will erase ALL data on the SD card.

Can't install drivers for WIFI card

I purchased a VeriFone 11 Mbps 802.11b Wireless Compact Flash Adapter card for my Axim X5. I put the disc and the wifi card in my laptop and I can get on the internet. But can't seem to get it going in the Axim. It always reads "Unrecognized Card". Tried ActiveSynce and putting the drivers on a different Flash card. No luck..

Installing San Disk Wireless Lan Card for Dell AXIM 5

Actually the reason why it's saying that is because that card is not compatible with the Dell Axim X5 because if it was you wouldn't get that response. I'm still looking for a Wi-Fi card for mine as well because I ordered the P500 Wi-Fi compact flash card from Dell then come to find out it wasn't compatible with the Axim X5, it was discontinued.

Unrecognized Card message

Look down the slot in the Axim. One of the pins is likely to be bent. If it can be straightened it will work again but may break.
I had this problem while under warranty. The unit was replaced but that was y e a r s ago.

Damaged e750

If your device has any USB's or cards in it such as; flash cards. remove them and try, because I had a simlar problem my laptop yes a lot diffrent to a pocket PC but the operating system works similar.

The USB acts like a boot up device in some cases and your pocket PC must be reading that there is a boot up device in.

Good luck. Hope my solution helped.

Can`t read more than 950 MB from 2GB SD Card

Try to format the SD 2GB card with Fat32 to some volumes so u will have multiple drives on the same single SD card. You can do it via card reader and format command from your PC. If this does not help it is possible that the device can not read big size 2GB SD cards.

CF for Jornada 525

The only advice that I could offer is to try those 2 Compact Flash cards on someone elses PocketPC. If they don't work then there must be something wrong with the cards. However, if they both work then there must be a problem with the CF slot on your Jornada. Try to test out some CF cards from an electronic store if they will let you. Yes, you do not need drivers for CF cards. A preferred CF list? Whomever told you this is blowing you off. People use all brands of CF cards from Viking, Scandisk, Lexar, Mr. Flash, etc. Sometimes there is a bad card and other times the CF slot is bad so check both of those out...

If you install the Toshiba Pocket PC e570 via USB cradle under Windows 2000 or Windows XP a warning message may appear durning this installation: The driver for the USB cradle comes from Microsoft and is integrated in the ActiveSync 3.5 Software. This driver has not been signed, therefore this warning appears. Please Note: This is only a warning messages. You can certainly continue with the installation, and expect the driver to run well.
