    when you get the attachment , all you have to do is:

    Download it -- open it(by clicking on the attachment) -- ...(3 dots) -- save to phone

    I suggest downloading the free app Adobe Reader:

    from your phone:

    marcketplace -- apps - all app --- free apps , it should be first one.

    if you cant download it , it might be a temp problem with your connection , keep trying, ive had it happen where I couldnt downlaod it for 20min! .. but its raire.

    Thanks, but with a PDF that didn't work. It opened it just fine in Acrobat, but there was no way to save it to the phone unless I missed it.

    your files dont work in Adobe Reader??

    if it does , just download the file to your phone and the next time you open Adobe Reader(the app) the file will be there waiting for you :) it basicly auto save to Adobe Reader.
    even if you delete the e-mail. to delete it from Adobe Reader push and hold on the file and a delete option will apear.

    i just tested with my cellphone E-Bill , lol! its a PDF.

    OK. I was expecting it somewhere else. Like in a file browser. I wasn't expecting it to be just sitting in my app. Now, how can I email that file. When I tried to attach it to a different email it does not show up in my file browser.

    yeah we dont have *folders* like we use to back int he day with WM or even android now. I personaly like this better but it does have some flaws :P

    it doesnt seem that you can send a file the only thing i can think off is.

    Share it with your skydrive , then go on your live/hotmail account on a PC and share it from there.
    seems to be the only work arround I could find:@

    other files in excel , word ect.. will send no problem ( if you open it in the app , sorta like saving it to file i showed up top )

    but PDF dont seem to send :(
