Question about Dell Axim X5 Pocket PC

Viruses on the Axim?

Ok first of all with all the shipping stuff i was shocked too! But the page was just funking out and so i got my Axim delivered 2 weeks earlier than it said. so that's cool. YAY! Anyways, i just wanted to know if anybody out there knows if you can get viruses on the Axim? i mean why couldn't it get viruses? so, if it did is there an anti-virus for it? cause i was planning on connecting it to my laptop but for some reason after i recently installed an anti-virus on it it found lots of viruses. strange since i'm careful...that's besides the point. the real question is would the viruses be able to get on the Axim?

Can i make my axim x51 a smartphone. Too many differences in hardware. There ARE however, there are ways to make it web accessable using bluetooth through a cell phone. Very doable and worth doing with any of the Dell x5x series PDAs. Can be done, I've just never gone that far to find out how.Check out Mobilitysite and HTCGeeks for a wealth of info on anything Dell Axim (other mobile stuff too!).

No wifi, how do i get on internet

This model of the Axim X30 does not have built in wi-fi capability. You need to purchase a 802.11 b/g Wireless SDIO card.


1. Connect the Axim X30 to your computer.
2. Establish a connection between the two devices using Active-Sync.
3. Insert CR-ROM which ships with the SDIO card in your computer.
4. Follow instructions for installing Driver an Utility.
5. Install SDIO card into the SD slot on the Axim X30.

My Dell Axim X5 400MHz Pocket PC wont hold the charge

Some people have said that the original ppc2002 ROM has battery draining problems. If this is something new, perhaps it is a bad battery. Ebay for a new one.

If you think it might be a software problem and you have ppc2002-also known as Windows Mobile 2002, upgrade your Axim with the A04 ROM:

The only place you can get this watch type battery with terminals attached is from the UK. Go to The battery you need is made by Varta, the part number is 55902201012.

You can E-Mail ( ) or ( ) They can give you a price. You will have to set up an account before you can order it. Then you have to E-transfer the money and they will ship it. It's about $9.00 each. + shipping. I didn't by one. decided not to fix my pda even though that's all that's wrong with it.

Using Axim with Linux?

I think the official answer from Dell is that Linux is not supported (as they don't include a conduit for it)....though I have a feeling it can be done.... As for running Linux on the Axim, there hasn't been anything developed yet. Chances are most of the stuff for running Linux on the iPAQ would work for the Axim, though there would have to be some tweaking to account for the hardware variance.

Pocket pc software

You should be able to export from Palm software and import into Outlook. Using Outlook on the PC and Inbox on the PPC seems to be the easiest way to view and sync data simply because it is preinstalled and ready to go. There are several other apps out there that will give you more options based on what your needs are.
