There is no FREE PDF viewer on the BB, the 4.5 OS supports basic viewing capabilities, and also the 4.5 OS will have docs to go which if you don't want to upgrade you can download OTA from here LIST: Latest Versions of 3rd Party Software (Mini Version Tracker)

I did say it is 'basic' so text based mostly and some graphics, it is not a real PDF reader. You can pay for one.

How about mobi pocket reader?
Mobipocket.com - eBooks and ebook reader for your PC, PDA and Smartphone: Palm, Windows mobile, Symbian, Blackberry, or PocketPC.
Isn't there a prog which will allow you to convert and view pdf files?

There are no adverts on the app, it's good in use. You can also download a program that will convert a wide variety of formats into a readable one.
