Default PDF, .DOC Attachments

Does the 7100 only support certain types of PDF and MSword docs?

I can't seem to open PDF's from the web or attachments. I get gibberish.


MSword either works or I get "Unrecognized document format"

Anyone else experiencing this?

If I remember right... you needed BES to open those document types, as it translates them into a format the BB can read.

I don't think so; My 7100t reads MSWord and PDF.

I've never tried; but as an email I just opened a Word doc to validate.

I've opened WordDocs as attachments. Never tried from web. tried PDF from web and as attachment. With similar results.

T-Mobile says that it is possible to read these without ES

That sounds awesome. I'll have to try that out. Can anyone view jpeg attachments? I know jpegs can be viewed on the 7100t, but haven't been able to view them as attachments. Am I missing something or is it not possible?

No, they can't be viewed as attachments yet. When 4.0 comes out you can.
