    I tried opening up a pdf file from a website, but it said the media type is not supported. Am I missing something? Or does BBs seriosuly not have a free natuve pdf viewer?

    You're not missing anything... NO native .pdf viewer.

    I have found that if I receive a .pdf file via e-mail, and I just open it, I can read it. But if I download it and try to read it, I get the "Media Type Not Supported" B.S.

    Did you try opening the document directly from your e-mail? Did it work for you?

    Yep just tried it, worked out great. Kind of a pain though since I'm studying for a midterm, and I have 8 pdf files to download and send to myself. Thanks for the suggestion though!

    BlackBerry Attachments is the software that lets you view PDF files, but it does require you to keep them in device memory as email attachments.

    Application developers, like nature, abhors a vacuum. BeamReader is the professional grade product that make using PDF files practical.
