    Questions from a newbie " Be Gentle"

    Advertisement



    I am a new user to BB, I recently purchased a Pearl and am trying to figure out it's full functionality. I would like to view pdfs, does Adobe have a reader for this? Also I would like to view certain maps on the web that need Java. What software would I need for this. Also what does RIM mean, I cannot look at the FAQ's, my browser (IE 7) and pinstack do not get along. Thanks

    Hi and welcome,

    If you have an attachment that is in PDF format you can view the attachment, however, depending on the formatting of the PDF, things can get a bit out of order. Straight docs are readable.

    Not sure on the Java thing.

    You can open/read PDF? I thought you couldn't. I got one pdf attachment that I couldn't open.

    Re: Questions from a newbie " Be Gentle"

    Thank you for the RIM comment. The maps I need are from various DNR websites, when I click to download them I get a message on BB saying I need Java to view. I looked for a setting but no luck. Also isn't there a website out here for free software with this thing or do we need to pay for everthing. I found soome adobe software

    I read them all the time, again, if they have lotsof formatting, it will not be usefull, but plain documents work.
