I have multiple usernames in SplashShopper, but only one device. How can I remove the extras?
SplashShopper gets its usernames from ActiveSync, so you’ll need to delete the extra “partnerships” there. Here’s how:

  1. Remove your device from its cradle
  2. Open ActiveSync
  3. Choose File > Mobile Devices
  4. Select the partnership that you want to delete (the inactive one). IMPORTANT! Make sure you don’t select the current valid partnership.
  5. Choose Delete partnership.
  6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 for each non-current partnership.

Note: You can find out your current Pocket PC username on your handheld device by doing the following: (on the handheld).

  1. Choose Settings.
  2. Tap the System tab
  3. Tap About.
  4. Tap the DeviceID tab, which will display your Device name. This is your current ActiveSync partnership.

My SplashShopper Pocket PC isn’t syncing.
It may be that you have the wrong User name selected. The handheld username needs to match the username in SplashShopper. You can find out your current Pocket PC username on your handheld device by doing the following:

  1. On the handheld - Choose Settings.
  2. Tap the System tab
  3. Tap About.
  4. Tap the DeviceID tab, which will display your Device name.
  5. Then check the User name popup menu that appears on the top left of SplashShopper Desktop. Make sure the User name that appears there matches the User name on your handheld.
