    Is there a program that will allow you to open MS word and PDF files? I get a lot of these in emails. Thanks for the help.

    The phone comes with Quickoffice installed, so you should already be able to open them.

    Alternatively, you could use Documents To Go. This program would allow you to actually edit Word, Excel, and view PPT and PDF.

    I did notice that sometimes they open, but most of the time they don't. I think I will try documents to go. Thanks for the reply.

    The Pro version allows you to actually create Word, XLS, PPT, & PDF documents. It's on the pricey side of most apps, but completes the funcionality of the Droid from a toy to an actual pocket PC, IMO.

    The attachment issue is a downfall of the android Gmail app itself. Try using the mobile gmail site.

    I am using K9 mail, which works very well. I have downloaded Documents to go free version. I will probably need to purchase the paid version to get all I need.

    Use blackmoon attachsaver with a file explorer program like Astro and you're set!
