My HP rx5915 iPAQ syncs fine from the PC to the PDA. However, when I'm in the field and add info to a calendar entry not only does the info not transfer to the PC, but it is actively deleted from the PDA. For instance when I put in a model number from a clients unit so that I can buy parts, I almost never get the info from the PDA to the PC unless I first put it into a note, then sync, the re-paste it into the calendar entry.

Re: Won't sync from iPAQ to PC
Sounds like you've got the ActiveSync setting for the Calendar set to one-way from computer to PDA, not Synchronise, which means the computer will always over-write anything it finds on the PDA that isn't in the computer. Try uninstalling/reinstalling ActiveSync, and pay particular attention to all the settings when you reconnect the PDA and it sets up the connection - from memory at this point you can define the "direction" of synchronisation.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

just install itunes and you can sync calendar and contact to your iphone. You cannot sync the notes and tasks but. I have just bought an iphone and before I was using an HP ipaq like you. Everything is synced except for the notes and tasks. You cannot even see any word or excel files you had on your ipaq. Cheers
Usually the simplest solution with Microsoft software such as active-sync is to uninstall it and install it again from scratch. When you reinstall it will ask you what programs you want to sync with, your old PIM software has been lowered in priority in favour of Outlook because MS think everyone should want to use it, so it's often easier to start using Outlook as your main PIM.
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.
your t5 is UNSTABLE possibly due syncing to an old username from an old PDA.
To correct this:
-delete manually the doubles (PDS has a tool but none for outlook)
-perform hard reset on your t5
-hotsync - creating a new user name (do not use the old one)
-you will be asked to use the same profile name for the outlook
Then you should be good to go.
Open Active sync on your PC.
Double Click on Calendar.
Change the settings such that it syncs only 0 past and 0 future appointments.
SYNC (this will clear all calendar items on the IPAQ)
Don't forget to change these settings back.
The pc clock needs to be set to daylight savings time. To do this right click on the time on you pc go to the time/clock settings and then click on the time zone tab and below the clock is the box that says automatically adjust for daylight savings time make sure that is checked and then re-sync the iPAQ.
