Question about HP iPAQ RX3715 Pocket PC

1 Answer

Outlook Before I get started all just come out and say, I am very ignorant when it comes to computers. I?ve had this iPAQ for a couple of years now and it?s worked great. For some reason it will not sync with my new laptop (Dell Latitude 120L) that I received a few weeks ago. Let me rephrase, the Tasks, Nots and Files sync just fine; it?s the Calendar and Contacts that I?m having a problem with. When I sync my iPAQ with my PC the calendar and contacts say (sync status on device). Please advise thanks, Adam G.

Re: outlook

Check the setting on the ipaq, go to ActiveSync and tools, options, server and make sure calendar, contacts and inbox are not selected here. Then, put the pda in its cradle and let it do a sync, it should change the settings on the desktop and the (sync status on device) should disappear. I had a similar problem and after de-selecting these, everything worked fine.

Window Vista syncronizing with iPAQ 3835 problem

In order to sync any iPAQ with Windows Vista, you will need to download and install Windows Mobile Device Center 6.1 from

Activesync will only work for XP Operating Systems and earlier.
  • To find out whether your version of Windows Vista or Windows 7 is 32-bit or 64-bit, click Start, right-click Computer, and then click Properties. The version is listed after System Type.
  • You can use Windows Mobile Device Center 6.1 only with phones running Windows Mobile 2003 or later. ActiveSync and Windows Mobile Device Center won’t work with Windows Embedded CE 4.2 or 5.0, Pocket PC 2002, or Smartphone 2002 devices. (To see which Windows Mobile operating system you’re using, and if your phone doesn’t have a touch screen, click Start > Settings > About. If your phone has a touch screen, click Start > Settings > System tab > About.) To sync content to any of these devices, you must use a USB or serial cable and your computer’s Internet connection and File Explorer.
  • You must use Microsoft Outlook 2002, Outlook 2003, or Office Outlook 2007 to sync your e-mail, contacts, tasks, and notes from your computer.
  • You must use a USB cable to connect your phone to your computer the first time you use Windows Mobile Device Center to sync.

Ipaq 4100 problem syncronizing with outlook on new laptop

you are now using outlook 2003 , probably cache , this means all the email is on your laptop. when you sync it will sync all the email (thousands). initialise your ppc (back to factory default). set up the sync via usb cable. then sync via bluetooth . then you are fully sync. now setup an auto backup of your email data (daily). if after some time , you have sync problem again , initialise the ppc, restore from backup and you are back to sync (last full backup). try this , you will never need to do it all again.

Lost '25 character code' for install of cd to hp 6515.

The code you are referring to is probably the license key for Microsoft Outlook. If you have lost the key you can buy Microsoft Outlook from any good computer stores. The other application you will need for Outlook to sync with the ipaq is Microsoft Activesync which is free and does not need a license key. You can download activesync from Microsoft website or from the cd.

When I connect my iPAQ to my PC, it will not recognize the device

It shouldn?t take more than 10 to 15 seconds for Active Sync to detect the iPAQ once it is inserted in the cradle and it turns on. First off you need to update to the latest version of Active Sync which is 4.5. Lots of synchronization issues have been fixed since 3.7 so here is the link to the download: A couple of times over the past few years I?ve gotten a non recognition error as well. Each time I?ve been able to get away with removing and installing the latest version and my problem has been solved.

Outlook 2002 Reinstallation

The default e-mail client on pocketPC 2003 is the "inbox" which is merly a utility for retreiving & sending e-mail. There is no "outlook 2002" on pocket PC's. The Outlook 2002 installation cd comes with most iPaqs and is intended for your pc, not your ipaq.

Contents of outlook

No, an install of OUTLOOK over OUTLOOK data will NOT lose the data. However... you may want to backup the files first ?? What version of OUTLOOK are you currently running ? If it's already 2002, I might be tempted to ignore this message.
