Don't think you can without a third party app.

The Bold doesn't have the capability to natively open .pdf files. There are a few apps out there that will allow for this, and other file formats (aerize file explorer, beamberry, PDF-to-Go, to name a few).

I use the Docs-to-Go Premium, which comes with PDF-to-Go, and it works fine, but with one caveat: it's PRICEY! If I wasn't able to expense it, I would never have bought it, but it does work.

One last thing: no matter which solution you go with, the reading of .PDF files on the Bold, or any other mobile device leaves something to be desired. Yes, you'll be able to read the files, but depending on the formatting of the .pdf file and your device's screen resolution, it will be a challenge.

DISCLAIMER: I don't work for DataViz, nor do I receive any compensation from them. My broke ass actually purchased their software (and everyone elses, LOL!).

OWA - Outlook Web Access. I have configured to get my work emails. So I am able to open any PDF attachments with that mail, but not other emails.
