Does anyone know of a document reader that can be used with 8820 and Mac for reading Word, Excel and Adobe?

No there isn't. For free you can email yourself these formats and the BB will open them natively. On your Mac for PDF preview will open them, for the .doc files for free you could try the newest version of open office. But if someone has saved a doc in the new 2007 format it won't neither will older versions of MSoffice.

I don't even think you can sync your documents/pdf's with the mac. A Mod may know better, neither pocketmac nor Missingsync have that funtionality that's why I keep a bare bones Xp machine around. (had to take Linux off)

If it weren't for that I'd be free of windows in my home and only have to deal with it at work.
