Since I upgraded 700w and active sync the synchronizing is not happening between phone and computer

How i can sync my Ipaq h3955 with my pc win xp

In order to sync your iPAQ with Windows XP or earlier, you will need to download and install Windows Microsoft ActiveSync 4.5 from:

You can use ActiveSync 4.5 only with phones that run Windows Mobile 2003 or later versions. ActiveSync and Windows Mobile Device Center won’t work with Windows Embedded CE 4.2 or 5.0, Pocket PC 2002, or Smartphone 2002 phones. (To see which Windows Mobile operating system you’re using, 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 information to any of these phones, 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.

Download and install ActiveSync:
1. Click the download link on this page, and then click Continue.
2. Select whether you want to register for the Windows Mobile newsletter, and then click Continue.
3. Click Download files below, and then click Download (next to the Setup.msi file).
4. In the File Download dialog box, click Run.
5. Follow the instructions in the Installation Wizard to install ActiveSync.

Note: You must use a USB cable to connect your phone to your computer the first time you use ActiveSync to synchronize information.

How to erase all contacts at once

Honestly... your best bet would be to perform a hard reset... then sync with the computer again...  To performa hard reset, hold the power button down and press the reset button under the battery door,... The phone will ask you if you want to 'Erase All Data?'... press UP on the navigation key or press the volume up key...

When it is done waking up and you have calibrated the screen and such, you can use activesync again to restore your old data.

I have 0problem with my t-mobile dash

Try a different USB port on your computer.
If that doesn't work, make sure Activesync is running and "USB Connections" is allowed in the settings menu of Activesync.

On the phone, go into the settings and make sure that USB connectivity is checked.

Hope this helps, let me know if it doesn't,

Contacts disappeared from storage card when phone linked to new PC

When you make a new relationship - connection with a PC you should always backup the whole mailbox first.(messages,contacts,calendar...)Because the ActiveSync erases the "old" contacts.So,can u go back to the "old" PC (where the contacts are OK) and try to synchronize your contacts? Make a new connection with Act.Sync.If u want to update or add contacts,its better to do it via your mail client(MS Outlook for example) first and then synchronize your PDA.Good Luck.

T-mobile dash problem

ActiveSync 4.x utilizes a network type of connection with Windows Mobile
powered devices, since this allows faster data transfer than a serial USB
connection. When the PC is connected to the Internet or a local network,
in some cases, the PC may disconnect the ActiveSync connection with
your phone in favor of the Internet or network connection. If this happens,
select Start > Settings > Connections > USB to PC and clear the Enable
advanced network functionality
check box. This makes ActiveSync utilize a
serial USB connection with your phone.

Cellphone problem with activesync

There are few solution you can try: 1) uninstall ActiveSync 3.7 and reinstall it and start over agin for the sync process. 2) Try to install the newer version of Activesync 4.2, it may help to cure some bugs with MPX220. 3) But first, you need to install the Motorola Mobile Cd comes with the phone and upgrade the software to th emost recent version and reinstall this software. Now tehn try to reconnect the phone again and start the new setup. If you try all these options, the phone is stil l not be connected normally, then your phone may has some bugs in synchronization. If your phone is llocked to Cingular, try to unlock it first before do synchronization since this phone has this issue reported form many users. you are not alone. Good Luck
