GSM & CDMA on iPAQ – the ultimate in connectivity! Hi Guys, The question – is it possible to connect a PCMCIA card to an iPAQ 6300? I have seen some ‘old school’ PCMCIA expansion packs for iPAQ H3000’s on ebay, but can it be done on a 6300? If so, how and where do you get the expansion pack…?

My vision: I live in Asia where the fastest mobile internet connection is via CDMA. I mean, broadband where I am costs US$1000/month and a fast connection is anything over 50kbps….

I am getting a PCMCIA CDMA card for my laptop and want to be able to connect this to my iPAQ. This would ultimately give me two lines (the CDMA and the GSM) AND access to high speed CDMA internet. All this AND WIFI…. could it be possible…? This would become the ultimate iPAQ! CAN IT BE DONE…? And is there someone out there who’s done it and can tell me how? I am coming to the USA next month and want to go shopping for whatever it takes to be able to do this! Cheers World,

You cannot do it with an expansion pack. The new Ipaqs cannot use this. The new ones with a CF slot can use an adapter in the CF slot that will take a PC card.
