G'day. Hope there's plenty of unsolicited advice here re: should I upgrade to 2002 OS: how I make this ripper little gadget makephone calls and send/receive email/check ebay progress/stop smoking( oops-asking abit much there!). Etc. to anything that will make this toy more than an umbilical cord to my desktop PC without selling with a loss and buying another already obselete toy. Cheers to all and feel free to advise. Maggiemode.

shouldn't this be going into PocketPC forum?

back to the topic, maggiemode, you will need a CF Wifi, or CF bluetooth with right driver for PPC2002. and either wifi network or bluetooth on your pc, then you can use wifi (or Activesync over BT) or BT-lan if using widcomm's bt stack, to access internet.

otherwise, best ditch 3630 and get hx2xxx with CF+SDIO+Wifi+BT with WM2003se or WM5 (if hx2x90 series.)

I too have iPaq 3850 which is old... not sure if CF/PCMCIA BT or WIFI will work with its WM2003 though... otherwise i'd use it as my wee gadget, and buddy it up with a Wifi remote control, you can control anything. hehe

I will be looking at getting Jasjar, or Hx4700(and if with WM5, even better)

Internet is my backyard...
