Am I the only one?

I have an Axim X3i, used to have an X5 Basic.

So come on, own up, who has an Axim?

Hi
I have a Dell X5 and its great. Liked the fact that it had in built CF and SD slots.
But Dell's decisions of not upgrading its software is bugging the hell out of me and I will think twice when I buy my next one.

Hi.

New Axim x5 user here.

I want to pick the brains of you gurus though as Ive never had a pda before let alone an axim....

I want to set it up so that I can check mails and the like as needed, so I have a "live" representation of my desktop.

The axim I have had bluetooth, but I dont think this will do what I want. Can someone please tell me what other hardware I will need to get the desired functionality, Im hoping just a modem/cellphone.

Cheers

Chris

Axim X5 needs a bluetooth CF card first. I got a socket bluetooth card which is great. You can set up for mail etc through activesync quite easily although when on the run I use my Sony Ericsson T610 (has bluetooth) and use a dial up service to check mailservier.

I also use on my Axim SmartGSM which is an awesome piece of software. It syncs phone with pda so that I can sms messages using Axim and if I had a bluetooth headset can dial etc with PDA and the phone never leaves my belt :)

The new Dell Axim X30's have Bluetooth incorportated and will certainly buy a new Bluetooth PDA.

Hope this helps

does that include being able to check mails in Auckland when my computer is in Palmerston North?

I thought bluetooth is like a local thing for an office room type situation?

I guess I should have a bit more of a readup on bluetooth.

Cheers

If you have a bluetooth phone and bluetooth PDA and a dial-up account you should be able to retreive mail from a mail server.
Problems I can see are you have ADSL and no dial-up (I have both).
You have a company mail server that you can't retriev from except internally.

I use clearNET as my web-mailserver and/or Hotmail (with high junk filter) which is forwarded things from work. When on the road I use a dial-up server (my wifes) and go to clearNET to look at emails- I don't download them unless really necessary and normally compose replys within Clearnet's webmail.

It can be slow but at least very important emails are seen and if need be I go online in local cafe for better screen size.

Bluetooth phones are good for this type of work - was browsing internet through phone and PDA at friends house last night for about 30 minutes so can ensure it does work.

For office/home environment I go through bluetooth on computer using Activesync and PDA that way I can browse internet from anywhere in house which is in range- but one must remember that most sites are not PDA designed although I have about a dozen goods ones that keep me up to date with news etc.

I received my AXIM X30 (624MHz) on 2 July and have been playing with it all weekend.

Jonathan,
I note you have succeeded in using Bluetooth to ActiveSync n run IE?
I have a USB BT adapter on my desktop and enabled BT on the X30.
The X30 recognises the desktop and vice-versa, but when I try to run File Explorer, the X30 asks for an autentication code and I can't find out where to set this on the desktop.

How do I set this up to work?

Also, when I set up the BT on the X30 to use "HOME LAN Wireless" as a IE gateway (?), it tells me the network is unavailable.

I don't know at this time if the BT adapter is not working or the settings are incorrect.

Hopefully, I will find out at MUGs (Mobile User Group) on Thursday.
n.b. I know it's Windows MUG, but MUGs is a better acronym :P

Hi
The active code you seek I presume is the verification code to link both PDA and PC. I am out of office at moment so will have to get back to you with how to set it up and I am in process of upgrading to a Bluetooth Lan gateway.

From what I can remember you will have to tap the bluetooth icon and go to bluetooth devices and do a search for other BT hardware. Then highlighting the PC and tapping Device and take 'Bond' on the menu.
Do the same on the PC but as I said I can't tell you this till next week.

You will have to then allow IE through Activesync and I will get back to you on this as well.
Sorry I can't be much use at moment and will revert soon.

I have not had reason or opportunity to use Bluetooth yet myself but if you go to aximsite.com and look at some of the tutorials and FAQs you may be able to find something useful. There are a couple of especially useful writeups and FAQs.

I did a quick search on "Bluetooth activesync" and found this thread which points to several others as well:

Good luck.

I was playing with the X30 this week, and noticed that they're still using the Widcomm Bluetooth stack... Our Bluetooth Guides for Windows Mobile 2003 work on the Dell line as well.

I wish to humbly apologise; I am new to Geekzone and only just moments ago discovered the rich collection of bluetooth information that is collected here under the Bluetooth Guides:
