I just ordered the ipaq HW6515 can anyone suggest which Bluetooth Headset works best? I cuurently have the Treo 650 and its plagued with Bluetooh issues....
I can't wait to get mine, its on order through my employer (a Major carrier in Australia).
Once I get it and its all done, i'll vote and so fourth. :)
I just got this phone about a month ago, and I am just getting used to it. I can say it's a little quirky to get setup initally, but once it's done, you can't beat the features.
-Using TOMTOM Navigation software with the GPS feature is AWESOME. Throw away that MS pocket streets. I was looking at the Magellan Roadmate and Garmin GPS's that sell for over $800 each, so this alone can make the price of the HW6515 a steal. I have used many GPS's and this TOMTOM software on here is dead-on accurate with perfect voice prompts. It even has accurate traffic updates & wrecks if you enable it.
-MS Voice Software works well for voice dialing and announcing caller id's. This is nice since I can not figure out how to assign a particular ringtone to an individual caller.
-It works great with a 2 GIG Mini-SD card for watching MP4 movies (with the right player) as well as storing all of your MP3 songs.
- Add an external WIFI Card for the extra SD slot and you'll be surfing high speed with everyone else.
-It is hard to use just as a "phone". You can not hold down a number key for one touch speeed dial which I miss.
-Sometimes when using the GPS and/or watching a movie, you simply can't answer a call. It just kinda "locks up" Typical Windows.
- The battery power is dismal. As posted before using the PDA all day checking your email and such with the backlight on, you can barely get 8 hours work of power. Listening to MP3's - Forget about it. I find myself charging it every chance I get. I just ordered a new high capacity battery, so I hope it will help.
-Most all apps, games, themes are for the bigger PDA screens so they do not work well on the smaller screen on HW6515.
- So far there is no IR Remote control software that works with the hw6515 that I have found to work with your TV and such.
Hope that helps some of you. I wouldn't trade it for all it does, I can put up with the quirks.
Just got this two days ago. WHAT A NIGHTMARE!
I spent two hours with my provider configuring the MMS and GPRS settings, and it was like each time you created a new setting, the system resets itself and goes back to another setting. Anyway, after 2 hours, only the MMS was working.
Tried to configure the email and GPRS the next day, GPRS keeps reverting to some other setting that I didn't put in, and even after multiple hard resets and hours with mobile provider customer support, (couldn't remove the wrong settings) the setting would still be there.
Called HP customer service, got some heavy overseas accent who didn't know what was the problem, kept saying "You input the right numbers, the phone will work!", and said that my email login and pswd was dependant on my mobile provider and not the email server. They were very happy to send me away with those answers.
Graphics was also slow, and its kinda funny seeing how remnants of the phone menu would appear on the "today" menu. Sound quality was ok though, but phone was really heavy, (tried using it with bluetooth) coupled with a classless plastic stylus and plastic cover.
Enough was enough, returned the device today.
And I noticed someone talking ringtones. Well, record your own... up to however long you want. Use SOTI pocket controller professional to transfer them and get them working and you have everything a ringtone fanatic could ever want. I currently have 1 minutes-worth of the A-Team as my ringtone. (Yes, I know I'm sick) but the possibilities are there.
This is a great little device IF you can work round the limitations. It will play any divx/mpeg4 video you throw at it (full screen) IF you get right software (which is FREE.. get that you iPod Video freaks!). How about automatically switching on your bluetooth headset? No problem with the right software. It uses TOMTOM to a TEE (pardon the pun...) So what else do you want it to do? Contacts? Reminders? Voice notes? Soduko? 2 (yes TWO) sim slots. It's just a great little gadget with screen limitations. Then get Nyidot virtual display... cool. Can you put up with that? I can. So go get one!!!!!!
i would like to know how long does the battery last, and if its a good phone, i would like to buy one.
This phone seeing the rom memory and the prosessor IS NOT A GOOG CHOCE.

Hello again Everyone,
One of the trade-offs with having Windows Mobile on your device, os that your ringers/ringtones are very limited.
Is it possible to add ringers/ringtones to the device? How can I go about doing that? Where do I get them?
I would really appreciate it if you could let me know. Please feel free to send me an e-mail.
I'm responding to the post I left on January 21, 2006. I had mentioned that I would be keeping my Palm Treo 650 and getting rid of my iPAQ hw6515. The reasoning behind that was that I felt the iPAQ hw6515, was simply too big.
Since then I came to realize that the phone itself is not big. It's the case I had the phone in that made it feel big. The iPAQ hw6515, is a much better phone than the Treo 650. The iPAQ hw6515 is the best mobile device I have owned to date. You really cannot ask for more.
I am very interested in this phone. I was wondering, is this a good choice? and can you surf the web.... that is one big questions. Please Contact me at Blazo02@aol.com
I've been using a HP iPAQ hw6515 for about two weeks now. It's a really great device.
The only negative I find is the size. When you use it as a phone, it feels like you're putting a brick against your ear. It's simply too big. I'm pretty much decided to stick with the Palm Treo 650 I also have.
Let me know if you agree that the unit simply does not feel like a phone. Thanks.
yes you can edit all document's file(word'power point'adobe pdf'...) whit it.
but this pda have'nt radio or other cover
