Re: Vanishing of sms folder.
If after a hard reset the PDA doesn't give you back the sms folder, it is most likely to asume that a ROM reinstall must be done. If you have a USB sync cable, check the HP site and download the ROM version for your Ipaq. Carefull with the rom upgrade, it's a simple process but must be done with care and by the instructions given there.

seem like all we get here are dead Ipaq.
why are you messing with this old device?
try a new battery, oops that costs money.
as does repairs on a device that has zero value.
why not mess with and old android phone, that has value.
ask here, be like only one playing Ipaq now.
i hope the ipaq is a windows based mobile, or what is also known as pocket PC. If am right, then it will not support .exe applications. Google your requirements specifying that your's is a Windows based mobile..
The SMS folder dissapears most probably because another program interferes with it. The same happens on some HP's with camera, where this options dissapears from menu because of some user installed programs.
In your case, it doesn't have to be a SMS - messaging related program, there are some compatibility issues and programs that apparently doen't have anything to do with messaging are causing this.
You should first try a master reset (hard reset) (save your data first). However in some cases this doesn't help, even if the program that's causing the problem is removed, and you will need a firmware rewrite/update. In order to perform this, or if you don't want to risk performing it yourself please contact me on the live assistance for step by step instuctions.
Good luck, Bogdan.
I suggest clicking on the link below. This will walk you thru setting up a support case in the country you are currently in.
After the case is set up you may be able to get HP to send you a box to ship the phone to them for repair.
Here is the Link
I hope this helps.
