Default PDF viewer

Please Login to Remove!

I have seen several posts concerning viewing pdf files. My problem is this. I have a customer who has the ability to dispatch job via e-mail instead of my fax machine. It comes through my e-mail as a link. When I bring up the link to the web and hit the button to view dispatch, nothing happens. When I do that on my home pc adobe reader opens up the page on the web. So this is not an e-mail attachment I am trying to open, but actually a web address with a pdf. Does anyone know how to correct this issue. I bought this thing specifically for this use as this is my biggest customer and would save me a ton on paper, ink, and time to call the office.
Thanks,
Rich

I have signed up for the second release of the beta test for the pdf viewer. Hopefully that will work. Unfortunately I am unable to provide a link on the web. These documents are by no means crucial but they do contain names, addresses and telephone numbers so I must respect the privacy of my customers. I appreciate your help in resolving this matter. Unfortunately I may have to go with a palm, I know those work with this application

Default I could not open a web-based PDF file

I have BeamBerry installed on my 8130 and I can view PDF files. I tried opening a couple of web-based PDFs with the same result as you... nothing happened.

Sorry.

DocHawk, Very expensive.
BeamReader, I think it's a very memory instensive application for just a simply PDF Reader.
Repligo Not a bad program.
Docs To Go Premium w/ PDF To Go - Docs To Go Premium with Repligo for free. Recommended for the heavy document user.

Default Looking for a free PDF viewer?

I was also looking for a free PDF viewer. I couldn't find one either at first, and I was frustrated that a) there isn't one already built into my BB; b) nobody offered a free one. After much searching, I finally found a solution that seems to do the trick: Mobipocket Reader. Works great so far; and it's free.

Go to the website (mobipocket.com) on your computer and download (& install) the Mobipocket Reader program onto your PC. Then, go to the website again on your BB, and install the Mobipocket Reader application there too. Connect your BB to your computer, and run the Mobipocket Reader program from your PC. The program will detect and connect to your BB.

Next, use the Import function to import PDF files from your computer onto your BB [other file types can also be imported too]. Once you have all of your files loaded, disconnect your BB, run the Mobireader app on your BB and enjoy!

I'm pretty new to both Blackberry (less than a year) and Mobipocket (less than a week), so if anybody has any more useful information to add about this topic I'd be interested still...

D322 you are a life saver, thank you so much for being the one to finally explain how to do it, it was very frustrating to never find a clear explanation on what to do. That was so easy! I am thrilled THANK YOU SO MUCH.

I was hoping someone would get some use out of that info. I know I'm still very happy with the MobiReader application. I hope it's working wonderfully for you too.

There may be a bit of a language barrier here...I'm having trouble understanding your question. Are you saying that you installed Mobipocket already and are wondering how to use it to read PDF files? Or are you wondering how to install Mobipocket? Or something else entirely...?

Did you install it on your PC?

And...

Did you also install it on your Blackberry?

Hmm...I've never tried to open any PDF file as an attachment on my BB...


I can tell you how to import existing PDF files from your computer to your BB using Mobipocket though. For an example, I have many eBooks that I wanted to bring with me on my BB to read during down times (commute train, waiting rooms, etc). So, using Mobipocket Reader, I have successfully done this. Works great too. I am not sure if it can be used to open attachments though.

However, from reading other threads, researching this subject, it sounded to me like BB can automatically open PDF attachments with no additional applications needed. But, like I said, I've never done that. Someone else is going to have to help you with that.

Best of luck to ya!
