    Have you tried going into the contacts section, clicking menu and looking for SIM Manager. Not sure if it is included on the hps but I ahve it on my HTC.

    It may have something to do with the ROM version:
    Business support forums - ipaq 514 - sim contacts missing after system rom update
    today I updated the system rom on my ipaq 514 vm to the 2.05.00 10 Jan 2008 version. Everything went fine, except one thing: when I go into contacts, it's empty. The show sim contacts option in the settings is set to "on" as always, it just doesn't show any. Then if I want to add a contact to the sim, it doesn't to anything (i.e. like I never wouldv've pushed the button), but I can create new outlook contacts without problems.
    I'd appreciate any advices, because I've ran out of ideas and I need my contact list.
    May need a firmware upgrade or that option checked.

    Odd...mine is using:

    ROM Date: 11/21/07
    ROM Revision: 2.05.00_WWE

    and I've had no problem. Most of my contacts were sim based..it nuked the phone ones on reinstall.

    All I did was a straight "plug into USB, run ROM update, let phone reboot"..didn't even remove the SIM. That said, on the original ROM it was just a case of "bung SIM in and fire up".

    Just been looking at mother-in-laws latest ebay purchase..for £28ish, a Blackberry. Interesting unit.

    Glad you like the phone, I'm enjoying mine, and will be even better once I get the Push Mail sorted for work again (mutters about various annoyances beyond my control)

    Did you go for the magnetic close case as well? I like that..

    I wish I could find a screen protector for it though..I already have a tiny, tiny scratch...annoying.

    My phone got dropped off a bench outside the pub a few weeks back (ok it's not an iPAQ...but it was expensive)....luckily it got nicked from the swimming baths last week (unluckily with my wallet and keys, dry clothes and a pair of glasses).

    I've got a nice new scratch free one on insurance now

    Thats not a bad idea, we could do a phone review blog or thread for each of our different phones. I'm sure that there are plenty of different types of smartphone floating around the forum.

    Or maybe even a slightly less exclusive Windows Mobile Device Owners Group
