    Someone is in the habit of emailing me MS Word documents. Is there a way to view these, preferabley without buyin an app (I only need view capability, not editing)?

    I think you can do this with GDocs.
    Can't remember if it is free. If not, it is very cheap.

    Weird I downloaded the trial version of Doc To Go (I think that was the name) and it wouldn't open anything that the default app wouldn't so I never paid for it. I have office suite which I thought was the default app.

    I was able to find it using spaces: docs 2 go. Both free and paid version show up. With free you can read your Word docs. With paid you can edit them as well.

    Well I think I have a different issue. The email attachments are coming to me from my Yahoo account via the Email app.

    The email app seems to have an issue with attachments. When I click the "open" button in the email it says "downloading attachment null" then fails to open.

    If I go to my browser, surf to my mail account that way, and click it the phone runs something called Quickoffice and shows me the attachment.

    I think I just need to get the person to swap my email address to my new gmail account and all should be well.

    That must be what I have becasue it's not in my downloaded history. When I open something up, it says quickoffice for a second, then quickpdf.

    The default one works great.

    Just an FYI, I can view docs from gmail or hotmail, but I've never tried yahoo.
