Current T-Mobile Pocket PC - Considering upgrade to iPAQ h6315
I'll pay if it will work (HP iPaq h6315);
I currently own the T-Mobile Pocket PC. I did not hesitate to pay the premium $600 for it nearly 2 years ago. I was switching from my Blackberry (Blackberry's phone version came out several months after I made the switch) with Cingular internet access and Nextel for my phone plan to the All-in-One T-Mobile Pocket PC. I spent countless hours on the phone with T-Mobile support and thought the technicians were working with me in every way they could. After several phone swaps and unsuccessful attempts to access my companies proxy server, and multiple know main spots around town where calls would drop and reception was always week, including around the airport, I finally decided to give up and...
FInally! Great phone!
I'm VERY happy with my phone now, it's now flawless and all of the current ipaqs tmobile is sending out are already preloaded with the new firmware.. What an excellent device. You can't go wrong.
Buy with confidence people!

yes or no?
I am thinking of buying either HP 6315 or SONY P910. I would love to stay with tmobile, since i've been with them for 4 years and AT&T in my area is not that good. My question is, for those who stayed with HP6315, are you still having problems? I've been reading this forum and I've seen a lot of negative feedback using the HP6315. Before I decide, can you please confirm if you're still having problems with dropped calls, signals etc etc... (pretty much the phone aspect of HP 6315). If you are still not satisfied or there are still no patches to fix the bugs, I might have to buy the SONY P910a. Thanks in advance for all your help.
Cingular and the HP h6315
This thing SUCKS!!!
Why can't little IPAQ answer the phone sometimes?
But someone should be able to answer why my 6315 doesn't pick up when I try to click ANSWER on an incoming call! I tap the screen with my finger, my fingernail, and the stylus but it ignores me and continues ringing!
HP should recall these turkeys and give us each a Palm Treo 650. I'm getting tired of this. About 10% of the time I cannot answer the phone because it doesn't seem to know I'm clicking ANSWER!
HP h6315/h6310 wireless internet (gprs) setup problems
3x a charm? not really
Calendar reminders don't work. Is it just me?
Available for Cingular?
not very good
I talk about 8000 minutes a month and now I am loosing calls. I exchanged my SIM card back to the 6600 until the 6315 works better.
I am not slamming the 6315 but guys we should wait till they get better signals.
Just my thoughts at 3 in the morning.
HP h6315: And back it goes...
Well, I can honestly say I gave it the best effort I could based on the 14-day no-remorse return policy. Calls to both T-Mobile and HP yielded no help. The unit is "so new that there's not much we can do at this point". I'm sure there will be a firmware rev at some point in the near future that might fix some of the device's issues.
I really, really wanted this to work out. The promise of a combination great Pocket PC PDA and great phone is still just that--a promise, and not a reality. Not yet.
I tried three units in total. Each had the same failures (see my review for details). As a PDA, it was great. As a phone, it was deplorable. And I am in the San Francisco Bay Area, so it wasn't a question of coverage. The phone portion ...
Bluetooth Headset Failure?
When making an outgoing call (I do the dialing) the headset works fine: I can hear who I called and they can hear me. When accepting an incoming call, I can hear the caller, but they cannot hear me. Sometimes I am told they can hear me but I sound like I am so faint that I must be standing far away from the mic.
I have tested this with two different BT headsets (the Nokia HDW-2 and the Motorola HS810) and several different callers using both cell to cell and cell to landline connections. Both headsets have the same issue, which leads me to believe the problem is with the HP and not two different headsets.
In addition, I tested with the sam...
