    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~im not sure if you can view pdfs from a blackberry. I tried to view a few online with my 8700 and it said the document wasn't viewable.

    eoffice has an app that will let you view PDF files

    www.dynoplex.com

    Kinda sucks though because they're confusing.

    It Depends on you OS version and only text based PDFs will open. I may be wrong but you may need version 4.1.x.xxx for the 7290. I can't really remember, But I think I have opened pdf attachements on my 7290, but it's been to long to be certain.

    Hope this helps

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~you should be able to open the attatchments without any problem, do you have the most recent device software for your 7290. Cuz I am able to open up pdfs that are not password protected

    I think it's a combination of BB OS and BES/BIS version, 4.0/4.1, 4.0 or better, and 2.0 or better.

    And it's only text based pdf. But don't expect them to look just like they do on a computer, because they don't. I don't even try if I know I can wait until I'm on a computer.

    Use os 4.1. 7290 can open pdf files. But view is not cool.

    I've tried a few attachment viewing software packages and the best one (I think!!) is Repligo.

    lbabus, Welcome to PinStack.

    Can you open any other attachments? Check Options/Applications and see if you find an application for Attachment Service. Otherwise I think there is a version of 4.1.x.xxx availabel for the 7290.
