Re: 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.

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 import and export photos from t-mobile dash to home pc

You need to download Microsoft Activesync and install it on your PC. You then need a mini USB to USB cable to connect the Dash to your PC. As long as the USB connection is recognized you will then have control to do different imports from the Dash. Alternatively, as long as you have Activesync installed you should also be able to read the Dash's memory and/or microSD card like an external drive and get the photos that way.

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,
