Default Opening PDF Files

Please Login to Remove!

Is there any way to open PDF Files I get in my email. I am on Telus and NOT on any enterprise server. I can open Excel and Word files no problem.

I can open PDF files on my AT&T (Cinglular) 7100g. It will not open PDFs that are scans of documents, but will open PDFs that we print from Word docs.

Most of the stuff I have to open is image based PDF's. Scanned in documents. I have no problem opeing Excel or Word but those are just text files I guess.

Image based pdf's could be a big issue. Remember the blackberry data connection is like a dial-up..would you open a large pdf file on a dial-up connection? Try sending yourself a small pdf file - under 100kb and see if you can open it. Do you see the option to open the attachment? Are you using your carrier's webclient?

Im new to Blackberry. I have an 8700c Am I able to send any of my pictures that is in my bb picture folder, or any pic I receive as an attachment to another computer or cell phone that has MMS?
Also, does the bluetooth wireless keyboards really work well?
Please send any comment to [email address] as I may not be at this site as much as I would like to.
thank you, Lennyinfla
