Default PDF Files and the BB Curve 8330

Please Login to Remove!

Ok, I have tried almost every program that offers to read the PDF files on the Blackberry Curve 8330, and I can't. I have tried sending the PDF file via email, and still I get partial. I have a 32 page PDF file that I would like to read on my BB, and all I get is page one. Anyone out there with a similar problem and how did you solve it? Going crazy, and ready to throw this BB out onto the highway.


Thank you,

I have the 8330 Curve with 4.3 OS. I recently purchased the Repligo. I have to hook it up to the PC to download PDFs to my phone, but I can view all my docs and all pages of them clearly. If you have 4.5 OS or up you should be able to open them as email attachments, which I cannot do. Does this help at all?

Default download pdf

So there is no way to download a pdf file directly to my SD card? Everytime I try this I only get 8kb of the file.

Default BeamBerry

You may want to try BeamBerry. I've used this program and it is very good at displaying files/attachments in their native format and appearance. It's not a free app, but I've found it to be worth the price. I think the site to visit is beamberry.com or you can just google it.

You can't just open the PDF email attachment. Maybe I'm missing something.

I open pdf's all the time. comes as an attachment, click on the attachment. To view next page, click on options, click "next page", to zoom in, click on options, click "zoom" , once you're at the right zoom level click zoom again and you can scroll right, left, up and down with the trackball.

Default Pdf

You should go get Beamberry and Repligo, and download their 10 days trials. Read on their sites about what they can do and how to do it. You will actually be storing those PDFs on your SD card, yes. Hope this will help you decide.
