Default Blackberry 7100t - PDF attachments always empty

Please Login to Remove!

I am new to the blackberry world and have a problem. Everytime that I go to open any pdf attachment the best case scenario I have is that I get a message saying that the attachment is empty.

Any ideas?

I have tried with all kinds of pdf files.

From what I understand pdfs that are from a scanner will open as empty while pdf documents created with adobe or another compatible program will appear as readable

I don't think so, at least not on my 7230. It has to do with the programming in adobe i think, it is not an ocr.

I suspect a reasonable workaround is to save the file as a JPEG image, and view that image on the handheld. In other words -- no, can't be done directly, but there is a workaround if it's important to you, and you are willing to go hrough the necessary hoops.

On my 7100t I can view excel, word, pdf files, but I can't "view" images or sound. I can "view" images and sound from the browser. But if you look in the online help that came with the 7100t it says you can view them as attachments. Also i can seem to get the screen saver option on my 7100t, just the background.. Anybody having the same stuff?
