    Adobe PDF Reader and Microsoft Word??

    Advertisement



    I'm a new user and I'd like to find out more about the capability of viewing pdf documents and Word docs on my 8100. Is there a free download OTA or otherwise? If not, what is the best route to go in order to do this?

    Thanks in advance!

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~the bb do come with readers for these file types built in, it is just a reader, and any attatchment that has these file types will open up so that you can view them. There are some limitations on the way it is viewed, but they do work great. If you want something to view and edit dynoplex would be the way to go but they are somewhat pricey, hope that helps

    For just reading these types of files then you'll be alright with the "stock" pearl because it has a pre-loaded attachment reader with the OS. So it will do this with any email with this type of attachment in it and yes, like stated earlier by diaz you can't edit them. This, however, can be done if you download an app that allows you to edit, save, print, and email these files. A good one is the one diaz said previously but there are also many other ones available for the pearl. So just search for some and then choose the one that fits you the best. I will say that most of these are very pricey so be careful when selecting the one you want.

    Hope this helps,

    I store and email those type files with no additional software. I save them to my media card in a folder I've made for them. Works fine. Just transfer them using your desktop manager.

    Beamberry looks great! However, when I downloaded the app and then tried to launch it I get the error message...

    'Uncaught exception: java.lang.Error'

    ...and the program doesn't launch. I tried opening excel attachments, for instance, with Beamberry on emails I've sent my self but opening with Beamberry is not one of the options. Apparently, if the install went successfully (which is said it had) that option should be available to me.

    What am I doing wrong / do I need to fix on my BB to get this program working?!!?! It's just the app I need!!!!

    And you can read and edit them o.k. just by clicking on them?

    My post was in response to your second request, storage and emailing them as attachments. I do not like the blackberry reader, I prefer the windows products on my pocket pc for that.

    I've being using beamberry for about a week and works great! A little slow sometimes but overall very good product. Try and reinstall and see what happens.
