HP iPAQ Voice and Data Messenger ROM updates

You may recall that we reviewed the HP iPAQ Voice Messenger and HP iPAQ Data Messenger a few months ago and while we were not overly impressed with them we did think it likely that they would become popular with a certain breed of business users.

The HP iPAQ Voice Messenger and iPAQ Data Messenger


A few days ago HP released a series of update for their messenger handsets.The Voice Messenger receives a series of patches and updates while the Data Messenger gets a whole new ROM to address the following:



  • Improves modem code to optimize power consumption.
  • Updates to Key Guard v2.3.6.40.
  • Updates to HP Photosmart Mobile (


  • Fixes the GPS status indication where GPS status is "GPS is disabled" when GPS service is running.
  • Fixes the issue for PIN2/PUK2 display problem.


The Data Messenger update will wipe everything from your device so make sure that you back everything up and while the Voice Messenger updates are patches rather than a full ROM build it’s still probably a good idea to back up your data before applying them.

You’ll see full information about the updates on the product pages following the links above.
