Hello!
I had a new PDA its an HP ipaq rz1710 and I tried to send a pxt from a vodafone cellphone to my pda via bluetooth, it asked me if I wanted to accept the file and I did. I have since found the file in the My Documents section but when I tried to open it, it said that the pxt was an "unsupported HP file type". I'm wondering if there is something else I need to be able to see these pxts or if it is just unable to be done!
Thanks!

I doubt the MMS format used by Vodafone is recognised by the OS. You'd need a special application to play the file.

usually you can save the just the image from the pxt and then send that via bluetooth. This is usually a jpeg and your pda ought to know how to display that.

There's also a version of vim for your ipaq's OS - you could open the file in that and split it into it's parts, if you know what you're doing... (maybe that's not helpful....)

I solved my own problem with the help of my techno-mum! She read on the HP forum site that what you need to do is find the pic and rename it with .jpg at the end of the filename. This solves the problem and it opens straight away! Such an easy solution for a mind-boggling problem!
