What would be the best way to view these files? Any suggestions?

On a computer that has Word, Excel, and Acrobat installed!

Sorry, seriously, all BB's with version 4.x firmware should be able to view all three of these file formats. Here's the full list from the 4.0 documentation:

Attachment type Supported formats
Document: *.doc, .dot, *.xls, *.ppt, *.pdf, *.txt, *.html, *.htm, *.wpd, *.zip (I assume they mean you can view the contents of the zip file - not the files within it, but never tried!).

Graphic: *.jpg, *.bmp, *.gif, *.png, *.tif

Note that although they can be displayed, sometimes it's useless. A letter size Fax is usually unreadable - text is too small when you view the full page, and too broken up if you magnify.
