    Question about Docs toGo

    I use my storm to view attachments (.pdf's...word files...sometimes excel files). Also have a few MS Word files I have stored on the device and view occasionally. Given this, is it necessary for me to have DocsToGo loaded? I'd assume I need WordToGo, but what about SheetToGo and Slideshowtogo? Are those apps required only if you want to edit files, or are they required even to view?

    Thanks!

    You will need to word to go, sheet to go is you want to view word and excel documents. I personally deleted slide since I don't use it

    Thanks everyone. I used shrink-a-os to take off the presentation program...left the others. I was running about 40-45mb of free memory after my weekend wipe/OS/hybrid foray...just came up after a battery pull and shows 48mb.:arms:

    We'll see how things settle in after this last tweak.

    As a clarification, you do not need a 3rd party PDF program to view that file type. The Storm will use Blackberry attachment service to open those. Granted they might not look pretty but it will work.
