Default How to view pdf, word, powerpoint

Please Login to Remove!

I just got my BB 8330 and really like it, but I don't know how to open an attachment that I received in my Hotmail or Yahoo account.

Do I have to have some special program for that? I'm talking a Word Document, Excel, PDF document or Powerpoint that is attached to the email I get.

Thanks in advance for any information.

If you have the "Blackberry Attachment Service" installed then you should be able to read those documents attached to an email. In the email, hit the menu key and select "Open Attachment."

Look in Options >Advanced Options >Applications and make sure you see the attachment service in the list.

I see that I have the BB attachment service version 4.30, but when I open my email and press the menu key, there is no "open attachment" option.

Just out of curiosity, are you using the native BB email application or are you reading these accounts via web mail?
