Pricing?

Ok, so cingular premiere has no clue, nor do the 800 number or store people. So I have to buy online. Ebay is never a good choice because something like this always comes very close to actual retail when you finally get a winning bid, and HP is still at $599.

i am out of contract on Cingular, want another phone, and have been using other pda phones like the crapy htc product (hopelessly under powered and volatile memory issues).

any good suggestions as to a decent roughly $400 price-point?

Recover hw 6945 GPS program

I deleted the GPS program via ActiveSync. I moved my maps to a simm but the program did not find them. I thought I would have to re-install the GPS program. So I deleted it on the phone. Well, I can't find it on my Getting Started CD. Or at least I don't recognize it. Can someone help me get that program back so I can use my GPS? HP is no help. I bought a refurb unlocked and they don't recognize me as the 2nd owner.

hw6945 vs HTC 8525 or Treo 750

I just coughed up $750+ on an unlocked HP 6945 plus accidental damage extended 3yr warranty. She is currently w/ Cingular and has a Treo 650 which now is on its last leg. Unfortunately for her or me Cingular does not insure a phone which will set you back $400+ which is silly to me. My dilemma here was that I wanted to get her a 3G phone since they have towers in Philly. The 750 doesn’t have WiFi unless you spend $130 for a WiFi card. I put Skype on her phone so she could make affordable international calls. However, the 750 can’t make the calls b/c the processor is lower than 400 MHz. Plus, no warranty and she never wants to go back b/c to Palm. The phone was basically a year and a day old before she started having major problem...

READ ME, immediate issues

Ok, as soon as I got mine (48 hours ago) I began to notice issues.

1) the thumb button seems to get stuck. not like it is visible or not, it seems it causes the menus to keep scrolling non-stop. simply hit the button, but it is annoying.

2) NO BATTERY LIFE Two hours after removing from the power cable, it is down to 90% battery. I plan on buying the extended life battery. Just lke the iPod. do nothing and the iPod lasts for 14 hours of play. Frequently change songs? 3-4 hour life span.

3) GPS IS SLOW!!! Hey, standing in the middle of Hollywood showing off my new phone took 5 minutes to get a fix on my location. I tried this all over Los Angeles, and it was always the same. Sometimes it would say number of satellites: 8, 8!!! how can...

Setting to automatically dial 1 at the front of an area code

Hey all,

this is my first post.

I am considering upgrading from my Treo to a HP Ipaq hw6950.

The question I had is:

Is there a setting where you can have "1" dialed automatically at the front of the phone number.

My treo has this feature and It is highly useful when dialing from Outlook (where my contacts are just filed without a 1 -- i.e. 514-333-3333)

Thanks

6915 vs 6925 vs 6945 differences?

anyone know the differences? i would assume the xx15 and xx25 are locked for their respective providers and loaded with network/provider specific apps that would more than likely be useless to a pda user anyway.

and the 6945 is the unlocked version i take it.

breakdown:
$409 to buy 6925 from cingy (maybe locked, whatever)
$540 to buy a 6945 from online source (unlocked)

photo and video file

I have the 6515 and thinking of getting the 6925. well my only complaint on the 6515 is that I recorded a video of some friends and now I cant get it to play in window media player. I'm wondering if that is the same way in the 6925 or did they change that. thank you

Flight Mode?

The specs say that this phone doesn't have flight mode, but surely something targeted at blackberry users has fight mode. Are the specs right? Is it missing flight mode?

Available through Cingular Premier

I have read many recent comments indicating that this phone is not available. Here is a screen shot from Cingular's Premiere site. A quick call to Cingular revealed that due to low quantity they have not made it available to all subscribers yet.

Bye HP

Well I have done some research and have phones that are better than 6900 HP. That will be on the market soon, Cingular has actually notified their stores. Also found some that haven't had any releases. All by HTC. One is the phone that is on phonescoops home page the other is the TyTN by HTC. http://www.htc.com/03-roducts-1.htm This is what I want and what a pda phone should be. ALthough GPS would be nice or great. Why is it they never have everything they should?? Smile

Anyway I don't know if getting the 6900 serries is worth it especially for the money.

HP 3G

So with Cingular launching thier 3G nation wide in Oct. Looks like 3G phones are the new norm. With the 6700 scraped before announcment or they renamed it 6900 will HP be scraping or coming out with a 3G messnger? Or more importantly if they don't how are they goig to compete with all the other phone manufactures that have 3G and latest bluethooth, twice as much memory, higher pixel cameras, same or smaller size( which doesn't bother me, I like the size just make it thinner)

GPS & traffic software

Is anyone familiar with any GPS software that allows you to reroute yourself based on traffic congestion, similar to sigalert.com ?
The GPS software that HP offers NAVTEQ only has maps for US and I don't think it does the above anyhow.
And if you are contemplating a GSM PDA it's probably because of European travel, so that kills any thought of the NAVTEQ recommendation.
Any thoughts from you gurus...THANKS.

The first orders by Monday

Those of you that ordered it right away and asked for overnight shipping should be getting your brand new 6900 this Monday. My tracking number shows it is just a couple of hours away.

U. S. Celluar

Has anyone used this phone old model or new or some phone like it with US Cellular? I'm with Cingy and am thinking of moving to USCELL since they get free incoming calls and half the cost but really haven't looked into it at all. So I thought I would see if anyone here has had any dealings with them.
