I thought PDF was viewable default? I don't think you need any extra software.

I have tried several and Repligo (Repligo.net)seems to be the best, but it requires a quarterly or annual fee.

The program in question is very easy to install. I haven't tried it yet, but man is it expensive.

You might try using MobiPocket. The reader software is free, as its main purpose in life is to view (purchased) Ebooks. However, it also displays pdf files, doc files, etc.

Now that i saw this id like to know if anyone else has had this problem.. I can convert a .doc or .txt file to a .prc file and send it to my handheld but when I go to view it says "File format not supported. Try to download the latest Mobi Reader" I have v5.1, anyone else have this problem and what can be done to rectify it?
