Default .pdf's on Blackberry 7130g

Please Login to Remove!

After months of not having a data plan (not financially feasible for me in Canada -- 24.95/mth for 512 kb), I've yet to find some method of transferring a .pdf to my BB other than via email.

Does anyone have any experience with this? Or know of any solutions?

Thanks,

Mushie

via email is the recommended and best way to view a PDF on your BB. Can't do it via USB transfer or Bluetooth.

Be aware that without third party apps, you can only view text in a pdf file on your blackberry.
for example, i receive faxes by email as a large image in a PDF file and cannot view this on my device.

Wait until the 4.2 code comes out for the 8700.. this with BES 4.1.3 is a big enhancement over current scenario for viewing pdfs as images. I can view fax headers for example as pure PDF images...not text
