    Can anyone give advise on the best way to store Word and PDF (or any file for that matter) on the phone. I'd like to be able to have a folder with files I can access and email..

    I suppose I could put the files on a Gmail and then forward. i'm hoping there is an easier solution.

    Thanks.

    I like Google Docs for storing files that I want to access anywhere. If you don't want to use that, though, you can just drag and drop files onto the phone via USB link.

    I don't think so. I just bookmarked it in my browser. Would be nice if they created one. Wonder why they haven't already, seems like they have one for everything else :thinking:

    Also, I've tried the drag and drop method but don't know how to get the files to the folder I created on my homescreen.

    I can view in ASTRO but the files are lumped in with a bunch of junk..

    Sorry for the newbie questions...

    Yeah, created a folder in the homescreen. I'd like to have all the docs I frequently email there for access.

    When I connect to my computer, I can't see the folder. you would think it would be there somewhere...

    I'm going to put some time into this later, I'll post what I come up with.

    Love the flexibility of this droid but they should do make things very unintuitive...

    I'd like to know this too.

    I prefer keeping documents in the cloud, but I would like to be able to pull a file from the cloud and transfer it to a pc that doesn't have internet. I won't using my phone as an iPod, so it would be good to make that 16 GB useful

    I use Sugarsync. It syncs my documents on my pc with their servers online and I can download them to my Droid with their mobile app.

    To email the files I use Documents to Go. It supports attachments with the Gmail app.

    If you decide to use Sugarsync; I'd appreciate it if you used this link as it would give me a little more extra storage.
