I have a blackberry 8320.

How can I view PDF files on the handset.

-------------------------------------
About my setup

I use my blackberry as a regular phone/mini computer but I am not connected to any data services.

I have tried using beamberry pdf viewer but it wants to connect to a server. Given my setup I am not able to do this. Is there any PDF viewer product which I can buy/free which does not require the handset to connect to a server for an initial registration?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

the file is also a .jad file, which means you'll need to download it wirelessly.
You've got an 8320, which means you have wifi. Connect to a hotspot and, using the hotspot browser, go to the webpage. You should be able to get to it fine. Click on the link and away you go.

Like i said, I don't have any data services, I have just put my sim card from my regular phone into a blackberry. For this reason I can not connect to the web page wirelessly.

I have downloaded the jab file to my pc. Can I transfer it using bluetooth?

You don't actually need a data-enabled SIM in order to use the hotspot browser. You can even take the sim card out and still use it, as long as you're connected to a Wifi hotspot (and are authenticated to it if necessary).

Just ensure that your default browser is set to "hotspot browser".

I don't have wi-fi set up on my home computer. Is it not possible to do this via bluetooth?

no, you can't load apps via bluetooth unless they're in .cod and .alx format, in which case you can use desktop manager.
Do you not have a Wifi broadband router? or hotspot?

Yes I have a wifi router but it is not set up.

I have the desktop manager setup and would prefer to use it over wifi.

I had a breif look and could not set anyway loading a Jab file using the desktop manager. Is it possible?

No, you can't install a .jad file using desktop manager - only .cod files! The only way to install a .jad is to use your device to download it, i.e. over WiFi from your device NOT your PC with desktop manager.
