    Can anyone recommend a free app that can read pdf files from the sd card without first connecting to the net please? I just want to read locally downloaded PDF's synched from my computer to my experia without the reader phoning home first, if at all.

    I've tried 'kobo' reader but that wants connection first before it even attempts to read the sd card.

    Hopefully thanks
    Sharon.

    Have you tried the official Adobe Reader app? Not sure if it 'phones home' before use, but it's worth a try.

    First, I didn't know of the android website, so there was no way that I could search it.

    I tried to install the adobe reader app, but it said that it was incompatible with my phone. Does anyone have a work-around for this please?

    Kobo has already been uninstalled, and I still search for a solution.

    In the main menu of your handset you should have an option called "Market", tap on this and input a valid Gmail account. Once you in tap the search option at the top of the screen and input "PDF" as the search criteria then download the Adobe PDF Reader option that comes up as this should resolve your problem.
