I too thought that you could not open PDF and then in the process of setting up my bold i registered by Word to go (under applications) and this registration process opened the pdf viewer and i could instantly view pdfs aswell... no other programs needed and it worked a treat. (To clarify it does not open it in word, but the registration process activated the pdf viewer)
I am looking at purchasing this handset and I have just one question; is there an option in BlackBerry® Desktop Software that allows you to compress audio files, similar to the way that Nokia PC Suites does when transferring audio files to a Nokia handset?
blankman, 04 Dec 2008if u buy an unlocked bold does 3g still work? is at&t service better than tmobile?you could use with t-mobile, but defeats the purpose of 3g, because t-mo's 3g frequencies are different from the one it supports.
Don do biz w/ Tmobile - theyre buttheads. Bust a payment by a day or two an they kick yer teeth with a late charge that they wont waive. Go w/at&t or anybody else!
J, 02 Dec 2008Thanks for your reply... Just bought the phone Got one more question for you on main scree... moreI did the same. If you go to the menu in the Contacts application you'll see an option to set it back again (can't remember what it's called, but it'll be obvious when you get there).
blackberry bold 9000, 04 Dec 2008why you cant open PDF file ? very strange.
from Pearl 8110 to Curve 8310 and Bold 9000 now.... moreIn order to open the PDF file, send it to yourself by email.
You're only able to open PDF as attachments.
Hope it helps, enjoy.

Javeid , 02 Dec 2008Hi all i have been having issue to get my blackberry 9000 on plan in australia.... Every servi... morehi javeid, 3mobile have it on a plan strating from about $70, which includes call and a certain amount of internet usage. I have used the phone and its great!
Indeed the ultimate business tool with class. A must have for everyone.
i bought 2 of these for my business as i needed wifi as well as the email functionality.
the first 2 handsets did not receive pdf documents via email other then in plain text format, something to do with the firmwre version. so i got these replaced and even though the firmware version is the same the pdf docs open... i will endeavour to upgrade at some point.
the deisgn is very sleek and althought slightly larger then the curve is definitely alot more user friendly in its windows software.
not had a problem with battery life, so far last over 2 days will full use of emails all day long and the blackberry chat service.
8/10 so far might give it 9 if the firmware solves the pdf issue. but at mo we send emails in rich or plain format which works.
i used to hate blackberry and everything they stood for. then i got given the bold for work. all i can say is wow and more fool me for not using them before.
Hi can anyone tell me if we can use black berry bold on prepaid connection if yes can we use internet browser - email - mms- etc in australia?
Thanks in advance
ah.. one more thing..!
Dont buy Blackberry Storm.!!! its crap!!!!!
it is not Blackberry!
Blackberry without QWERTY keypad.! its not Blackberry.!
still there are heaps of software issue..! also has SHOCKING battery life.! if anyone thinking about Storm, just go buy iPhone.!
you can use Blackberry with Prepay.. but if you use prepay you can not use BIS or BES which is main point people using Blackberry.
i can 100% recommand this device to anyone.
i am using Blackberry for around 5 yrs now. and its the best Blackberry ever.! i have also used iPhone & HTC touch Pro but this Phone is Rock.!
good things about Bold:
Fantastic Screen !!! so Clear screen made easy to watch movie ... (using Xvid and Divx)
Great Keypad. ! Improved keypad !from Curve. very easy to use.
Design>.! very nice design.!
Sound: it has Stereo Sound ! and Great Speaker Quality
now. Bad things about this phone:
Battery life: is shock.! this is due to it has wifi and 3G however if you do not use them you can turn wifi off and turn it to 2G( it actually doesnt really matter if you just receive emails. not very different from 2G and 3G) .. this saves battery life a lot.!
Camera: for me i dont use camera so it doesnt really matter for me to have stupid camera
PRice: very expansive.! i have paid this phone for $1200 NZD without Contract.
Overall: i am very happy with this and Recommand to other to buy it.! once try Blackberry and will never go back to other device.!
Hi all i have been having issue to get my blackberry 9000 on plan in australia.... Every service provider is asking i have to be atleast on $100 plan to be able to use internet and browsing etc.
Is it right you can't use it on prepaid?
I have bought bb 9000 outright any recommendation which service provider is good to go with?
Thnaks in advance
