PHM Registry Editor, by PhilippeMajerus is a slick tool for editing the Registry on your PocketPC. Just like a Windows-based PC, your Pocket PC or Windows Mobiledevice has a "Registry" that contains all the information aboutyour device. Onealways has to keep in mind that you have to be careful when editing theRegistry. The Registry is a database and if you introduce errors orremove something vital, you'll have problems. In my experience, however,if you are careful and precise you can edit the Registry safely. AndPHM Registry Editor is the perfect tool for doing it. When I gotmy Verizon XV6700 'smartphone' I did some searching on the Internetlooking for accessories. In doing so I also found a large collection of"hacks" that other users had put together. The "hacks" wereRegistry edits that enhanced certain functions of the phone. Ahh, but inorder to implement them you had to have a Registry editor. I quicklyfound PHM Registry Editor recommended all across the Internet.Having used it, I can see why. And it's FREE!

The first thing I noticed was that it reminded me quite a bit of theRegistry editor that comes with Windows. I felt right at home using it.In a number of ways the PHM Registry Editor is even easier to usethan the PC based model. You can easily search the entire Registry ofyour Pocket PC to find the "keys" you're looking for. You can also copykeys which makes it much easier to create new ones. The program makes iteasy to change Keys, Data, and Values in the Registry. I was impressedby how easy it was to make a change. Once done, you just close theprogram and do a soft reset of your device.

The PHM Registry Editor makes it easy to backup the Registry andrestore it. You can also import, which is sometimes a handy feature tohave. So, if you'd like to do some "tweaking" on your smartphone orPocket PC device, this is the program you need. I recommend ithighly.


If you have software you use on your "smartphone" or PDA, come and talkabout it with us in the Forums. We look forward to seeing you there.
