    Use file manager, find the pdf file, it should allow you to use Polaris office or other apps to open them...

    Hi:

    *download and install the free app ES File Explorer from the Market
    *Open ES File Explorer and click on the SD Card Icon below local/mnt/sdcard
    *This will take you to the root directory. Open Removable.
    *You should see Microsd. Long press on Microsd. Chose shortcut when the menu pops up.
    *You should see a MicroSD folder on your home screen.
    *Open the MicroSD folder, browse to your desired file, a pdf in this case. Press on the file, choose open as from the menu and then text.
    *You should see Adobe Reader as a choice. It will open.
    *You can choose to always use a particular program to open a particular file type or select from various apps each time.
    *Use the same method to press on any file on your microsd card and use open as to choose the app of your choice.

    Hope that helps,

    Tom
