.pdf files ???
Someone please for the life of me tell me how or which (I've tried most all of them) app to use or which phone setting to change so I can at least view .pdf files on my sd card. A .pdf is a very common file. My old Optimist Q had no problems at all. I was told this was an upgrade but if it is not configured to open a simple .pdf...well, that leaves a lot of room to doubt... also, can't even download the simple basic CNN news app on the Proclaim. Says it is "incompatable" but worked just fine on the Optimist Q.... Makes one wonder !!!

Question for you Zzuebe:
1) Have you rooted this device and running it on a custom rom?
If so, that might be why you are getting the error. I have the Proclaim and just installed Adobe Reader without any problems whatsoever.
If you have not rooted the phone and you are not running a custom rom, you may need to reset your phone. Backup what you can beforehand.
Go to Settings, Privacy and then tap Factory data reset. That seems like it might be the only way to restore your phone as something has messed up.
I tried all the free ones on Google play (even Adobe Reader) and no good... always get the same message "an error has occurred"... I don't think the phone can read .pdf's... Friend has the same problem !!! I don't think this is an upgrade to the Optimist Q (really a bit slower at times) but does have better coverage and "Flash Player" ... Oh well !!!
I just downloaded the adobe reader app from the google play store...
why not install adobe reader? as for CNN that would be a developer issue not the phone.
Adobe reader, APV .pdf reader are just two apps on Google Play that you can open and view .pdf files with.
