There was an offer to upgrade from PPC2002 to WM2003 few years ago.

Basically, you are out of luck. you can try a bluetooth cf card with a cf sleeve and get the right driver installed on your ipaq.

good luck.

p/s: probably worth looking at the newer ipaq like rx37xx/hx24xx with bluetooth.

You can connect to your phone via infrared.

Jama: You can connect to your phone via infrared.


Hehe, I actually did do that in the early days before bluetooth gadgets are widely heard of. Used my ipaq 3850 and nokia 6210 via infrared and establish CSD connection.

Though, will infrared establish a GPRS connection that way?

Mr. chiefie..
be4 given any information you have to make sure that you give the best advice or your words became bla bla blaaaaaa.. and learn somthing that You need to press and hold down the calendar and arrow keys simultaneously. Then press the reset button on the bottom of the unit - and hold it pressed for at least 5 seconds (holding the other keys as well). The screen will blank out. If it doesn't come back on by itself, releas all keys, wait a second, and then press the reset button on the bottom again. The unit should be totally reset (ie. hard reset

First of all, chiefie gave an advice, and you should say "thanks" not show ingratitude. As far as I know, he suggested either a Bluetooth adapter or a new PDA. These are your options, live with that.

Second, you are teaching how to hard reset, which I am pretty sure chiefie knows how to do, since he's got Pocket PCs.

Third, this hard reset procedure is only valid for your model and similar iPaq models. Other Pocket PCs use different procedures.

Fourth, you don't say if the hard reset did actually solve your problem.

Fifthy, if the connection through your PC and Nokia worked, and it's not working anymore, what's changed? Have you turned the phone off and on before trying again?

Lastly, why write everything in bold?

Thanks  freitasm for that 6 point and regarding the
1st :point :I'm living with the Bluetooth connection now and it does work
Properly .
2nd:if he is an expert with that "Professional enough " he could advice to make
hard reset not to get a new PDA.

3rd:i was asking about the same iPaq models
4th:yes its solve the problem
5th:yes now its connected simply by changing the dialing rule (G/G/G)
6th:Thanks for you and for the chiefie .

first off, i never and did not claim to be a professional expert, you have that mindset to start off.

secondly, you WERE asking for the model 3780, where I have 3850. there's a HUGE difference between 37xx and 38xx model. And the reason I did not suggest "Hard Reset" as it hard-resets your PPC where you may have important things. And you did not give further explanation or description as to what happen after, you are very vague with your explanation and no one can really give more advice without clearer understanding of your situation.

However, we glad to hear it solved itself. Now be nice.
