Great Pocket PC with user friendly features . Camera pictures not up to the mark . Stereo volume not enough
If you are trying to find out your MAC address (for wireless)...
I just figured it out for myself..
Do Start>Programs>Self Test
your MAC will appear.
I just got the HP 6828, second hand but in good shape, it works very well, but my 2 main problems are changing the ringtones and the battery last for 2 days only if you dont use it like I do>< any can help??
Pda size dont matter coz professionals use pda's and many professionals wear suits with big blazer pockets so if its big no problem. The screen was and still is small. I use a pda as a phone and to make poerpoints and write documents. Try using it for that. ===it dont matter that it has a good camera and good games, if the screen is too small to serve what pda's are made for.
Anybody face this camera flash light turn on all the time(dim light)? i try to on and off flash still not working.
James, don't critics what you don't have or I doubt thet if you have used it before, the size of the screen might be small but I've tried it to the smallest font size it still looks OK for me, if you have long sighted problem(eye sight that older people have) don't critics the 6828, it's not the PDA size that have problem it's your eye sight and for your info I do started to have long sighted problem now but the font size still OK with me, about the device hang, I do have a O2 XDA IIs, O2 XDA II Mini and all those WM2003 SE Device hangs almost 4 to 5 tomes a day and this 6828 I've used it more then 6 months now it only hangs twice, for if you said yours 6828 hangs more then 2003se then you must have installed the 2003se software that are not compatible and for your info the baby won't lose your data even if the inthernal clock battery runs off try it with your device leave it 36 hour's after the external batery runs off for my advice backup your data before trying so if not you will hate your 6315 for loosing your data and now which device are better and moreover no one here like to carry a brick wherever they go
I have an hp 6315 and this pda. I liked this until I realised that it's for losers. It's all about size baby. u know what I mean guys. If u have the cash, then buy the biggest screen available not this. documents look crappy here, SO SMALL!!. and games are smaller, to navigate it I need a needle not stylus. Now I sold this and I am using the big screened 6315. and as regards performance this windows mobile 2005 hangs more than hp6315 for some strange reason
i have used this hp6828 for 6 months and i just facing several problem,but after i renew the software type,it getting better. there is only one problem that i never can solve.the battery only avalaible for 2days.anyone can help me?
hey i've been using my hp ipaq rw6828 and so far its good but my only problem is that sometimes cant open my text messages, is there someone encounter same problem as i do..pls help!!!!thanks a lot
hey guys i just got a new hp 6828 its a lovely pda but i have a problem. my motorola blue tooth gets disconnected in 5 mins because my pda bluetooth gets off automatically. can anybody help me ????
this phone is by far the best pda there is. i've tried o2 xda II and IIi but none exceeded my expectation of a compaq pc and phone in 1 amazing gadget, however, the sound as i must agree with others is kind of too low/soft that i often miss calls or text messages.
Hi there co hp-rw6828 users i bought my unit a week ago and when im playing music or watching video's it slows down when im getting text messages is this normal? coz my xda mini doesnt have this kind of problem can any one help me pls.
About the sound lost after plug out the stereo earpiece was the faulty of the 1st generation board. I've the same problem too at first I got my device, but after send back to HP for board replacement now working fine.
So I suggest you do the same too if your device are still under warranty period.
If you can email me your modify ring tone, really appreciate , I still can't make my ring loud,
A good PDA...but why can't i sync without installing the get started CD?
I mean using it just like a flashdrive or an external storage device...?
If you've any idea,pls just post it or send me a mail.Thanks
Good one, perfect use. But i cud not make the incoming calls turn into automatic answer. i m a surgeon, and when i m on to a blue tooth, and m busy operating i want all calls to be answered automatically as my hands are busy and m not able to press the button on the blue tooth ear piece. Kindly help.
This device is not bad at all, I've been using it for 6 months now, and for those who complain the ringtone was too soft, edit the ringtone lover down the low freq. by 50%, after that normalize the overall volume to 300% higher with a sound editor software such as soundedit pro.
For my use of this device till now I think it hangs only not more than 3 times, for fine tuning the performance use SKTools to to optimize it, I've optimized my 6828 to performance and use poket mechanic to increase the cache size to 8mb and if you do the same, I bet you'll love your device.
For activating the hands free mode during a call, press the send key for 3 to 5 seconds and to deactivate the hands free mode do the same as activating.
Camara for me is good enough for my work, you can't compare this device camera with a digital camera cause this device was a PDA with the extra advantage of phone and camera build in, if you needed a fine camara go and get a digital cam.
The Wifi works well and the bluetooth works well with my sony stereo bluetooth HBH-DS970 for listening to MP3 and accepting incoming or outgoing calls.
For me I'll give this device a 9.5 out of 10.
Hello! I love this PDA as i need it for my work. I just have problems with the ringing tone. it's too soft and i tend to miss calls because of this. can you advise me where to download or get louder tones? I also love photos but it seems the pictures are dark. can you help me with the settings? how can i copy my favorite photos from my pc? whenever i tend to copy photos from the pc, the program will hang up. Also, with the music, I love to listen to mp3 but I am afraid of using it as I might loss the voice again. whenever i attach the earphone then detach it, i seem to have trouble with the sound. can't hear a thing and need to reset the unit again. hope someone can advice me with all this trouble. thank you!
so far so good.. the only problem is that i cannot turn on my wifi.. dont know y it happened.. can somebody out there could help me solve my problem? i do hard restting but still it doesnt work.. how can i set up my wifi? thanks
