    BIS 1.8 and PDF/DOC Viewing

    Advertisement



    I'm hesitant to post this in the General Blackberry Forums as it may be Carrier related, but then it may be of interest to those on all carriers that have not transitioned to BIS 2.0/2.1. I am on Cingular and have not transitioned to 2.0, as what it takes away is worth more to me that what it adds. Last night, just to see what would happen, did a Register Now and then googled some search terms that I know produce hits on PDF, Doc and PPT files. I did this just to see what would happen. Guess What. I managed to open about 6 of 10 PDFs and 3 of 3 Doc files I tried. it was not sucessful with PPT files at all. This is the first time I have ever been able to open any of these type files. And it did not automatically change any of my settings on the BIS 1.8 Account site.

    If anybody else is willing to try this, I would appreciate your posting any results here.

    Hope this helps
    Rcbjr.

    CP, Have you been able to open any of the newly offered files in your browser?

    For lots of PDFs, Docs, and PPTs use site:.mil when you google. They love that type of links.

    pdf and doc files open for me just fine. I ran out of time for the ppt but i will try later.
    I'm of course useing the 7100i BIS 2.0 Nextel if that helps the survey at all.
