i am facing this problem for quite some time and havn't been able to resolve it .. the problem is that in my code i have a link to a .pdf file.. the file is saved on some server.. i need to open this pdf file in my application.... i have tried using the blackberry browser but it gives me an errror : HTTP error 500 : Internal server error
i have tried the same logic with a word file and it works fine. .. the browser automatically opens the doc file using Word To Go..
I have scanned through all the forums and what i have found is that BB does not support PDF viewer.. but there must be some way to display pdf files..????? do i need to download some 3rd party s/w which supports pdf format, but then how will i invoke this new application from my code...????
Help me guys...

Hi and Welcome to the Forums!
It is true that the out-of-the box version of the To-Go apps does not open PDFs. PDF's can be read on the device via the attachment service -- but the only way I know how to invoke that is to have the PDF be a message attachment. The other alternative is indeed to update the To-Go apps to the Premium version, which includes support for PDFs. Other apps also exist, but I'm not sure of the names (BeamReader?????). You can search around these forums, though...I know it's been discussed a few times. But, to my knowledge, there is no free way to do it...all of the apps are paid add-ons.
