    Hello guys,
    I am using a Blackberry 8520 Curve and i Do NOT have a blackberry Internet services plan, as i m happy using WI-FI at home/office.

    I am having trouble opening P.D.F files which will not open straight out of box and also "Documents to go" section only does not have a P.D.F reader

    Can u guys suggest me a free Adobe P.D.F reader?
    Need help asap


    thanks

    Not too sure about a free pdf reader for us, but if you buy (upgrade) to documents to go premium, then you can get the pdf reader.

    I went through the same thing, had to finally break down and buy it.

    Docs2Go Premium is appalling expensive for what it does and while eOffice is a lot cheaper, I don't know that it can open PDF on the fly - it may need to 'convert' them via its desktop application.

    Its bizzare that there is no free (Adobe or Foxit, are you reading this?) or dirt cheap PDF reader for BlackBerry.

    I don't agree with your statement that it is expensive. When you consider that you are getting 4 apps in one and break down the cost, it works out to about $17.50 per app. For full office accessibility that is not out of line. The one place I do agree is why Data Viz won't sell/license each individual product so that if you need the PDF reader only that you can buy it as a stand alone product. As for Adobe, considering how badly they bog down the computers with their Reader software, I'm not sure I would want them developing an app for the BB, but hopefully someone else will see and fill the need in the future.
