    Let me just start off by saying that I just got this phone and am still learning about it..so I'm sorry if this is a stupid question.

    I have a few books as PDF files on my phone that I like to read from time to time. However, whenever they open through Quick Office, they always open from page 1 and I lose my spot..and my bookmarks button doesn't do anything. Plus, whenever I leave Quick Office, all my settings like the zoom view and reading view setting that I had it at resets itself. Its really annoying to have to go and find the page I was on before hand.

    Does anyone know how I can fix this? And does anyone know other applications that I could read my pdf files from...other than Adobe (I don't like the font)

    I use RepliGo Reader (Premium) for reading PDF files.
    When I open the PDF file the app goes excatly to the page I did leave the day before :)
    For this feature I don't need bookmarking (but the app can bookmark).

    Well, I use Documents To Go because I am not a fan of Quick Office. I tried to reproduce your issue but for whatever reason, none of my image heavy PDFs will load properly in either program now. I opened Astro and it asked me which program I wanted to open the PDF in. I chose Quick Office and it worked. It even preserved my place in the PDF when I did it a second time. I am not sure what the deal is with opening those files directly from the apps, but when I went through Astro first, I got the result you were looking for.

    If the phone gets rebooted, I am not certain it will remember the spot I was reading from.
