Is there a way to take pdf's from your computer and put them on a Pearl to view? I don't need to view them off of an email because I don't have a connect plan, I just want to view the ones I have on the computer.

Without a Data Plan, you have very limited options, since BBs were designed for a Data Plan.

Do you have a Media Card on the 8100?

If you do, yes. Using eFile from Dynoplex, I believe you can view your PDFs from the Media Card.

There could be another option, let's see what other users may suggest.

BeamBerry would be the BEST idea, but the user stated he doesn't have a connection plan for the BB.

Here's a ghetto solution...

Export the PDF as a JPEG (export or Screen cap) and just put the JPEG on your card. It works in a pinch.
