    OK, I had to perform a hard reset a short time ago. Everything went well. I reconfigured my AvantGo preferences and my device synched. However, when I went to open the AvantGo program on my device, I can't find the AvantoGo icon listed anywhere. Where did it go? How do I get it back?

    I don't think Avantgo is installed in the 4150 ROM. The Avantgo app was also curiously absent from my fresh out the box 4150. Just head over to the Avantgo website and download the PocPC version from there and install it. By the way, if you don't have a Bluetooth USB adapter...I would advise you to pick one up ASAP. I am now surfing the web, syncing, listening to NPR, and responding to a few e-mails all via Bluetooth and best yet...at the same time thanks to the PocPC multitasking features. :D

    You can't download the PPC version from AvantGo's web site if you're running WM 2003 - it will tell you it's included on WM 2003 machines. Take a look at this thread for a solution.

    As blusparkles said in the thread you pointed to, this must be new because I downloaded the Avantgo client some time ago and installed it with no problem. All it did was place a shortcut icon in my programs folder.

    I had that problem as well, but if you selected it as part of the active sync process it will appear in your program menu.

    I had that problem as well. No matter how many times I hard reset the device and create new partnership in ActiveSync it still wouldn't work. Had to un- and re-install ActiveSync to get that icon back.

    I spoke to an HP tech yesterday. After an hour on the telephone trying to figure out what happened to Avantgo, he suggested that the problem might be with my desktop. (I have been having a terrible time trying to get my Ambicom BT dongle to work properly.) Sure enough, I restored my desktop system to a date prior to my BT problems, un-installed ActiveSync, re-installed AnticeSync, and performaed a hard re-set on my handheld. AvantGo is now up and running properly. Go figure.

    So Jim which one of those changes actually restored Avantgo or were all required?

    Actually, I had previously tried un-installing and re-installing Activesync, along with hard re-setting my handheld. It did not work. The only thing that I can figure is that my problems with Bluetooth somehow corrupted my system. After I resored my system to an earlier date, the procedure worked.

    Not to long ago when I had my 21xx, 2 weeks ago, I could WiFi Avantgo and update my catergories on thier server. After the initial syn I never had to use activesync anymore. Looking at the site now, WiFi is not available anymore for free. Am I missing something?

    I am able to sync wirelessly with the AvantGo server using either WiFi or BT trhough a mobile phone. Just establish a connection and use modem sync.
