i own this ipaq 512 for about 1.5 years. its a great phone, no problem at all.
Hi, bought this phone a few months ago and have found a way to get it on the internet through O2 pay and go using gprs!!!
First turn on your hp 514 with the o2 sim card inside and let it load up. You will then need to perform a hard reset. To do this, hold in the power button and hold in the navigational buttons, a command prompt will appear asking if you're sure you want to reset. It will then load up as new, however as your o2 sim card is already in, you will have an option whether you are on o2 contract or prepay, select prepay and then set up the rest of the phone e.g. time and date. It should then succesully connect to the internet.
PLEASE NOTE, I FOUND THIS ON ANOTHER FORUM AND THE PROCEDURE WORKED ON MY PHONE BUT SOME COMMENTS WHERE LEFT THAT THE PHONE DID NOT TURN ON AGAIN. I CANNOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE! ALSO WHEN A HARD RESET IS PERFOMED ALL DATA WILL BE LOST E.G. EMAILS, TEXT MESSAGES, INCLUDING NUMBERS, UNLESS SAVED TO THE SIM CARD!
it is quite a good phone but the problems i experience on this phone are: it usually hangs (specially when i'm trying to scan for wi-fi networks) and i can't seem to connect via gprs, though my settings are correct(that is why i am having a difficult time in my email)
how do you surf via wi-fi, as this phone seems to only like surfing on GPRS, so it can waste my credit
Pretty phone, nice size. I would NOT recommend it though. It switches itself off occasionally, it forgets wi-fi network keys, sometimes it doesn't hang up calls, it sometimes won't surf the net via gprs if it's been surfing via wi-fi (memory leak). Battery life not brilliant. Often Locks up when trying to redial a number. Won't play standard video clips (Odd screen size) Everything HP suggest doesn't fix it - Factory reset, upgrade O/S, etc. If it didn't have niggly faults it would be brill.

ipaq accessories are not availble freely in market(power adapter and battery) if we contatct... morehi mohan ci, this phone can work perfectly with any charger with mini-usb 4 pins, normally used to connect to pc, you only need to check this, if the charger can supply between 3.5 and 6 volts at 1 amp or above with less than 10% error (900ma or 1.1a) you can use it complete normall.
options of replacement: motorola v3 charger, some huawei chargers, most of htc chargers, blackberry chargers....
hi everyone!! for you youszero, how to configure wap, internet and mms??
first your service provider has to publish that on it own website, you can check and try any phone configuration with microsoft windows mobile 6.0 standard edition. it is so easy to configure!!!
if you can´t find, i give you an example:
digitel venezuela (gsm900/1800mhz, gprs, edge)
enter menu, go to configuration, then go to conections, go to gprs, here you have 2 config to run:
first internet or wap: click "new...", then the phone will open a windows with some cells to fill with some data, description, connect to, access point, user name, password, main dns, second dns, ip adress, when you finish to fill part or all cells, click ready. now you have internet or wap
second mms: click new again, then type your service provider mms setup. you can take this from a branded phone from your provider with windows mobile 6 or better.
hope to help you!!
I am using a 8GB Kingston Micro SDHC and it works fine! As it has accepted an SDHC I am going to try the 16GB Micro SDHC card by Sandisk or Kingston as I need 7.5GB for my Spanish lessons alone before I start messing around with Excel and music etc...Shop around though as here in the UK there is a difference in price online of about £20 plus.
