Re: word files

Hi and Welcome to the Community!



  • KB15253 Supported native file format attachments in BlackBerry Internet Service

For as long as any of those remain an email attachment, the BIS Attachment Service will render them. But, once detached or otherwise not an attachment, then you need an app on the BB that can render them. There are several choices, and you will need to shop for the one that works for your requirements. DesktopToGo Standard (no PDF) is still free, I believe.


Good luck!
