    Are you looking for an ebook program or just a text file reader? Are these files extremely large?

    Once open in your email, you could copy the text and paste it into a memo.

    If you have BES, you can even just copy memos into your email account (I'm only familiar with Exchange) and they will sync ota with your BB; no need for emails or attachment.

    Thanks, Lewis, I didn't even think of using the memopad. Lancelot, Just create/copy you text file into an Outlook (or which ever PIM you use on your PC) Note and do a sync with your desktop, making sure you have the Memopad sync option correctly set up. Now you will have your text file available for reading and editing on your BB.

    Thanks Again Lewis. Why can't I think of the simple solutions when needed

    Hope this Helps, Lancelot.

    Re: text program

    I've installed Mobipocket reader and I think its GREAT! It links via the USB cable, and allows you to download ebooks AND import files from the PC for viewing on the BB. I have read several Project Gutenberg (plain text) ebooks that way.

    You can even view Word & PDF documents WITH pictures.
