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.

Hx2410 won't connect with the computer, i'm put as guest

Its a ActiveSync that you have on your CD (bundled with u'r own IpaQ) that I think it's suite best, because I've once installed ActiveSync v4.3 (upgrading..), device connection is intermittent, and some syncronizing process fails.

IPAQ 1950 suddenly will not connect to PC to allow sync

Same problem, on four computers with two iPAQ 1950's. I installed ActiveSync 4.5, and all works fine now. This link will get you to AS 4.5:

This SHOULD work for all PDAs, but I have only used it for the 1950.

Activesync trouble

Have you tried a differnet cable? I saw somthing similar due to a bad cable - even worse a bad connection on the phone.

- check your device settings on PC.

- remove the device by deleting it in device manager and then re-install.

to go to device manager:
- right click on MY COMPUTER ICON
- Scroll down to manage
- find devicre manager
- look for device under usb
-right click delete.

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.

Sync via bluetooth

Does your USB adapter provide serial port connections ? I had the same issue with an USB adapter with a dedicated-to-phone software. I changed to MSI bluetooth adapter and then made a serial port available to COM5, then connect activesync to COM5. (make sure on the ipaq you create a shortcut "activesync connection" and pair with the bluetooth adapter.

Activesync via bluetooth

I have bluetooth Activesync working on my hw6515 connected to a Dell x300. Followed the instructions in the User Guide Chapter 9. Need to take note of the com port assigned to bluetooth serial port on the PC. Connection must be initiated each time from the IPAQ ie go to buetooth manager and connect the activesync shortcut.
