As a prepaid user, you probably do not have a data plan. How, exactly, are you "sending files like that to your phone?" Are you receiving the email at all? Or are you just lacking the attachment?

PDF files can only be viewed as an attachment in an email, unless you have loaded PDF viewing software on the device. These are processed by the attachment handler and this can only be done within an email without proper software.

Have you verified that the "contract sim card" has a valid BlackBerry data plan on it?
