    For those of you who are new to the forums (Christmas time typicall brings a rush) a great place to start for (Fav. 802 NIC, Today Plug-in, Remote Control, MP3 Player, Free Software, etc., etc., etc.) is with the search button.

    Pretty much every question one can have is answered here already and probably more in depth than you would get a response for now (chances are, the first time a question was answered, people had alot to add, if it is a repetitive question, you usually get a shorter answer).

    Just adding .02, good luck!!

    I think this deserves a bump. Better yet, make it sticky :)

    Yes! Others have also suggested such a sticky for new members.
    After joining the forum, I personally got a heck of a lot out of this site by doing searches for earlier discussion threads on all kinds of issues.

    I have to agree with this post to a point. I am one who has spent a good deal of time doing searches here and for the most part they are useful, however I would say that 40% of what is retured is irrelevant information. Why you ask? Well this is due to the information people put in their signatures. I have done searches for any number of hardware and software items and have come up empty and have waisted a lot of time because people put what they have and use in their signatures. This false tracking becomes very tiresome quickly. But I do not discourage searches at all...just be patient and have a lot of time to sit and read.

    bump

    Caveat...search first in this forum if you're a new 2200 owner.

    I dunno, from things I've seen today alone search the 2200 forum for:
    dpad sensitivity
    wake
    white screen
    hard reset
    IM
    VOIP
    soft reset
    bluetooth (peppe)
    BT cellphone (sn00p)
    sd or cf disappearing
    emulator (playstation, SNES, gameboy, atari, etc.)
    keyboard
    gsplayer mp3 oog network player
    landscape rotate rotation software (NYDITOT or dotpocket)
    netfront, ftxpbrowser, multiIE
    uBook
    icbar, wisbar advance, ppx
    theme or skin (people--lightman, juni, lord_shar)
    Battery
    ActiveSync backup
    Remote control server/desktop (look for Vnc and Terminal Server)
    Remote control (Nevo)
    difference between 2210 and 2215
    cases (there is 1 huge thread or go to ctitanic's site)
    map drive (share files with desktop)
    lifeview flycam (look me up)
    prolink iBiz convergentech FM radio
    convergentech GSM CF phone for 2215
    hard reset
    backup (activesync full backup/restore or Sprite software)
    SD memory disappearing

    Again, start at ctitanic's site for 2215 specific questions.
    There is a patch from ScaryBear that you need immediately.

    I'll make this one a sticky for a while... definitely worthwhile!

    about a year and a half ago, I brought the same thing up and got chastised (perhaps it was my signature that had all the repetitive questions listed and offered to do a search)????

    I am glad to see that suggesting a search is starting to take hold, it is important to remember the point that most of the topics have been discussed AT LENGTH previously and you can find a ton here and at PocketPCPassion.com.

    Good Luck to everybody and welcome,
