Openning Files?? Word, Excel, PDF

Does anyone know of an application that allows you to open attachments that are in word/excel/ppt/pdf format? I'm used to documents to go, but can't find a program for the Instinct......maybe time to return the phone and go with a crackberry/Treo???

Yep might be time to return if you need to open those types of files. As of now there is no app for the phone that will allow that. Once we get the MIDP Java update there could be some more options but that might not happen till the end of August.

You can view Word files with the built in note viewer.

Other file types can be downloaded and sent to a PC for viewing.

 

If this is a hard requirement, then you should look at a Treo or WinMobile device.
