How to open RTF on Z10 ?

Hello, 

I very often receive attachments in RTF format. How can i open them ? 

DocTogo does not work. I have been search this and other forums for answer and what i find was not working. 

Apps "MyDoc2PDFConverter" will not help cause i can't install it on Z10. 

Is anybody know how to open rtf attachments ?

Re: How to open RTF on Z10 ?

I'm experiencing the same issue on my Z10.  There is no answer anywhere and it seems the there is no support for something they don't know how to fix.  Personally I think this phone has lost it's "Business Edge" as there are a lot of simple tasks that were available on older BB products that no longer work.  Ha...my wife bugged me for getting BB instead of Iphone and it would seem she was right...**bleep**!

RTF is a old microsoft only way of doing email and hardly many I deal with use it any more.

 

Might be best to ask the person sending to change to HTML or plain text.

I have my mail server setup to it can not send in RTF anymore.

 

nice link on how to not use RTF

This is just one that you can read RTF files with, there are others, this one was recomended.

Re: How to open RTF on Z10 ?

Thanks for your help!! But really, this is my point with Blackberry...I shouldn't have to learn how to be a programmer just to load an app for me to do the simplest of tasks on a business phone, like reading a file attachment. Cheer's! and Thanks again for your quick responses!!
