HP h6315: And back it goes...

Crying or Very sad
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 ...

i feel your pain. the device is great for data services, as i am using it to write this reply, but it sucks to talk on. if i know im a have a day of alot of phone calls i have to switch the SIM to my nokia 3660. i suggest u keep it and just activate another data only line for it and get a new phone.

As it is, I already have an older 3870 that I have the Sierra Wireless AirCard 750 with a T-Mo data plan (unlimited for $30/mo is better than anyone else by a long shot) and I use that for data for now. Since I cannot get the HP to be a good phone, I'll upgrade both my phone AND my PDA to a newer (smaller) phone and the new HP hx4705. If I'm going to have a new PDA, might as well get one that is the TOPS. The hx has faster proc, more memory, and a larger screen (480x640--sound familiar?), plus all the things that make the h6315 interesting (BT, WLAN)--just no phone. Though I am seriously looking now at the AudioVox SMT5600 as a good alternative to the Nokia 7610. We shall see.
