    Just mount your sd card to your computer, and simply transfer the file.

    You will also need a PDF viewer on your phone. I don't think it is stock. Documents to go is free for viewing office documents.

    Hi. Long time lurker. First time poster.

    Is there a way to do this without an SD card?

    email the file from your computer to whatever email you use on the droid (i.e. gmail), you should be able to download the attachment...

    i have had issues at times using the gmail app to do this, and you may need to open your phone's web browser and do it the long way.

    you could also use dropbox.

    Hmm. In that case I believe I'll just load it onto Windows' Skydrive and download it. Thanks!

    Yup - any of the online file sharing methods like DropBox, Box.net, SkyDrive, etc. will do it.

    But, let's be a little more practical.

    You have an Android phone. Therefore, you're already using Google products.

    Why not use Google Docs?

    GDocs for Android

    Also, for security conscious people: send documents to Moto Droid? I do not want these to be shared at all. - Google Docs Help

    And finally, the no-brainer - Finally: Edit Google Docs in your browser | Android Central

    And since the OP titled the thread about PDF but asked a question about Word Docs, let me also say: Adobe Reader, while hefty in size, works perfectly well for reading PDFs on the DROID.
