Bought a XDAII mini a month ago. Installed only Mnote software and have not install any other software since then. However, after 2 weeks, the power button just not functioning. Long or short press has no effect at all. Send in for repairs and 10 days later they decided to change a new set for me without explaining what was the problem. So never occurs to me could be a software conflict. So install Mnote again. 3 days later the power button does not functioning again. This time symptom slightly different. Long press of the power button the backlight on and off working fine. However, short press will hang the system and required re-booting. FRUSTRATING. No matter what I did, soft or hard reset and remove Mnote software, it just does not help.
HELP needed before I send in for repairs again.

I'm now using XDAIIs la. I think it likely the same as XDAII loey la. Anyway, At first I loved XDA Mini 1.3M pixel camera na. But then discovered that 1.3M camera just give same quality of image as 0.3M of XDAII or XDAIIs. That's why I choose to use XDAIIs instead. Actually I think XDA mini camera is not good enough to be a criteria for buying it but XDAIIs WIFI is a significal benifit for me. How do u think krab?
Has anyone tried to use the Mini as a wireless modem?
I tried connecting my notebook to the Mini via the USB cable, activated the Wireless modem and click on Start. The first dialog box that popped up was "COM OPEN ERROR". Even though I've disabled Activesync as mentioned in the instructions.
Need to configure this in case I am out of reach from the wifi hotspots.
Yup, you are able to assign Group Contact Ringtones or even an individual ringtone.
Wrt the ringtone profile, sadly, there is only Ring, Vibration or Off. However, you can set it to ring/vibrate at the same time. Good if you are in someplace noisy and you can't hear it ringing.
Battery life is short if you use the PDA function. This is typical of most PPC devices. However, you can improve battery life by reducing brightness, turn off bluetooth and IR when not in use. With this, I can get the Mini to last one working day without any problems. If you don't use the PDA function at all, it will last you two days as listed in the manual.
However, I always have a mini-USB connector in my office or even my car. That way, my Mini always has plenty of 'juice' whenever it needs a drink power!!!
1) Are you able to assign group ringtones?
2) can you set the mobile to a certain calling profile.. eg silent, meeting etc.
3) There's been reports the battery life doesn't even last a day which is of concern. How long do you find your mini's to last and how would you describe your usage?
There is no actual keyboard on the mini, however, you can buy a Bluetooth keyboard or use the virtual keyboard. But I think you'll prefer to use the handwriting recognition instead. Forget about the Camera functions...it is not up to par.
But the MP3 features are relatively OK. Some of the folks at xda-developers.com came up with a bass & treble booster for MP3.
i'am wondering if this mini can be a mediator between a digital camera to a small portable harddrive(i'm thinking to use an external harddrive with laptop size) so that i can store my pix to an external harddrive. I should be able to get a USB splitter to do so, I presume.
and, i have another question. can i go online using a USB WLAN instead of SDIO card??
thanks in advance
hey.. i was thinking of buying an o2 phone.. i dont want anything too big, but with good features.. as well as a better camera than the one i am using now, nokia 6230. this seems to be the smallest o2 smartphone there is.. bluetooth is very important for me, as well as the camera and mp3 player.. does the mini have a keyboard? or is it all just using the stylus? could anyone please help me..
Yes, you should get video and audio whenever you play the the MP4 or 3GP files. However, I seem to get similar problems with some MP4 or 3GP files. If I use PVAuthor to encode my movies to 3GP, I don't have any problems. But, when I used Nero to convert to MP4, I can't view it on my Mini.
I guess it is probably due to the way it was encoded.
I'm currently using the following software to view the following files:
For AVI Files - Betaplayer
For WMV Files - MP10
For RM files - RMplayer
For MPG Files - Pocket TV
RM movies at 640x240 can run, but slower than at 320x240 resolution. Can't stand RM files encoded at 640x240 as the frame rate drops to about 10fps....
Hi Mini Mania
Actually, the PocketPC2003SE is as unstable as Win98. People who don't normally install a lot of software may want to contradict me, but since I normally experiment with a lot of software, it is very prone to crashes. Needless to say, the same goes for my Mini. However, the only good thing about the Mini is that when you perform a hard reset, ie, pressing the RESET HOLE and the POWER BUTTON, everything will be reset back to the default PPC OS. That means whatever you have installed previously will be gone.
Therefore, if you are one of those guys who are not going to install a lot of things into your Mini, you should not have any problems....
That's why I keep a separate list of programs I've installed into the Mini so that I can retrace my steps whenever something goes wrong.
