If anyone's wondering what to get me for Christmas, then here's a suggestion.

Displaying cell location on your Pocket PC Phone Edition device

Monday, 16 October 2006

Frank had also wondered about how to do this, so I found DKToday via his blog.

I then got a bit annoyed that I was getting all these pop-up notifications about what cell I was in.

Further down in the comments of Frank's post, there's a link to an article by Nick Randolph about how you can edit the registry on your Pocket PC device to tell it to not cause the cell name broadcasts to be turned into pop-up notifications.

I might see if I can write my own applet, as DKToday does seem a bit buggy.

Phone reception for my HP IPAQ rw6828

Sunday, 15 October 2006

Optus finally ported my phone number over to a new SIM from my old CDMA phone on Friday.

It all works well, but it does appear that where I live is not such a great place for mobile phone reception.

I'm wondering what options there might be. I can't find anything online about car kits or external antennas/aerials for this model, so it may mean I need to leave the phone up one end of the house that does manage to find a cell (from about 3 suburbs away!)

Or maybe I can convince Optus to install a new base station nearby.
