This thing is a load of rubbish with a slow CPU and lousy technical support.
I have owned one of these things for about 10-12 months. The first problem that it had immediately out of the box was an intermittent connection via USB, which finally developed into no connection. This proved problematic for both data connection and charging. I tried, at my own expense, various USB cables to see if it was the cable at fault, I had the same problem. I then sent it away for repair postage costs were my responsibility. The HP agent said nothing is wrong with it and sent it back. It still did not work upon return. I repeated this procedure with same response, on the third attempt I got lucky, with the device being replaced. I guess these people don't understand the term intermittent.
The next problem is the under powered CPU, try answering a phone call whilst listening to an MP3 then returning to the MP3 once you have finished with the call, it works some of the time, but mostly you have to reset the device to get the unit to sound reasonable (ie no clicks in the audio) and also to operate at ‘decent’ speed.
The next fault that this thing developed was it decides to intermittently reset itself. Once again the same 3 times to the repair agents before it was fixed.
The thing has now developed a problem with the audio output for the radio and the MP3 player, which requires a reset to correct.
That aside the wireless, Bluetooth, and IR operated reasonably well, if a bit slow, the IR could have had a better range. I have not tried e-mail and the internet functions on this device I guess I don’t want to be disappointed any further.
Overall this device is a slow donkey, which promises a lot but fails to deliver. Also HP method of technical support and warranty support is pathetic. Being asked to connect to a device via USB to down load a patch when the thing won’t communicate illustrates this quite nicely. I guess this demonstrates what HP really thinks of its customers.
I am about to throw this thing away and invest in a real device, I’ve heard nice things about the Palm devices and the Blackberry Pearl. A waste of AU$900.
overall this pda is nice but the speaker really not good enough especially when you are in crowd or shopping mall...
Configuring BSNL's GPRS on HP iPAQ rw6828, is becoming a headache. Neither HP nor BSNL have been able to help out. Can any body please help
You may have to turn the Wi-Fi power on the phone up a little to get the range. Also check your router for MAC Address and WEP security setup, however you should be able to enter your WEP keys when configuring a new wi-fi base station.
I have never had a problem hooking up to wi-fi with any phone, however some degree of patience is required as it does take some time.
I have major problems connecting to the internet using the WIFI with this phone. It hasn't worked at all so far. It either hangs or switches off the Wifi automatically. It says it connects to my router but I cannot connect to the internet or browse any sites. I'm almost at the point of giving up on this phone.
I finally managed to connect to the internet using the WiFi function. Must be the WiFi source signal strength that has been causing the problem all this while.
Can't help u there since I cannot access to internet with my pda. My problem could be the WiFi signal from the Free HotSpot zone not strong enough. I don't have WiFi router at home.
Could it be that you need some Flash player maybe?
One more question abt videos. I cant seem to play videos from youtube or cnn... Anyone knows how to make it work? Thanks in advance.
Thanks Ashley for your responses. I tried the WiFi with my 6828.. It worked like a charm with my BSNL wireless router. I didnt have to do any configuring... Sorry, couldnt be much help.
1. U can't shut down this pda.
2. Windows media pre-installed in the pda should be able to play most video format.
3. I also have the same problem, especially when taking pics at night. Unfortunately have to accept that its pic quality will never be as good as commercial digital camera.
this pda has wifi and window OS and also GPS software. I think u need to buy external GPS device in order to use this function. I haven't use the GPS function yet. Don't know how to.
guys im am loking for a pda dat has wifi,GPS n windows OS...... is dis d right ph o der r other btr options
I'll try the IE with my wireless router tonight and post tomorrow.
Meanwhile, I have a few of questions for you:
1. how do I shutdown the device without yanking the battery out everytime?
2. how do I play downloaded videos?
3. When using the camera, pictures are really dark... do you know how to configure it?
I have a HP iPaq rw6828, and I am trying to access the internet via a
wireless network connection. I have just given up on talking to HP as they
seem to be incompetent and have never used their own products.
Anyways, I have a wireless network at home, which I use with my laptop all
the time. I have successfully connected my PDA to that. I get an IP address
and I can ping external IP addresses and websites.
However, if I open up Internet Explorer, I cannot browse to any websites. I
can however, connect a network drive and play music in PocketMusic.
Anyone got any ideas what I am doing wrong? My laptop is working perfectly,
which assures me there is a configuration issue with the PDA.
Thanks in advance.
