For a PDF sent as an attachment to an email, the native BlackBerry OS will read it, for free.
If you need to view PDF files on your Media Card, there is not a free option... BeamReader, Repligo and PDFtoGo from Dataviz are good options, but commercial.

Perhaps you could provide more description of what happens? An error message perhaps? Or does it truly just do nothing when you make the attempt? Please provide a complete description of the exact steps you take and exactly what happens. As discussed in this thread, BBs will open PDFs as long as they are an email attachment.
Nevertheless, I suggest the following steps, in order, even if they seem redundant to what you have already tried (steps 1 and 2 each should result in a message coming to your BB):
1) Register HRT
2) Resend Service Books
3) Batt Pull Reboot

WM and BB are not the same. If you were expecting a BB to function exactly like a WM device, then your expectation is where the error is...it is not a "fault" of the device. The device does what it does. Other devices do what they do. None are identical. Each have strengths and weaknesses. Hence, we have many choices and only by knowing for sure beforehand the differences is each person able to select the device that suits their specific needs.

Blackberry sells no devices. The carriers set the prices, including any promotional offerings they choose.

I have pdf files emailed to me regularly, but when they are opened, the text appears very pixellated. Also, I can only 'open' rather than 'download'.
For a device primarily used for business, this seems very odd. Is this an inherent crappy design flaw, or is there something I am doing wrong?
