    One current limitation of the iPhone is an inability to download and store documents.

    If you have the time and ability, storing PDFs onto a web page will provide you with the best iPhone viewing opportunity, but you will have to be internet connected to be able to view them.

    One tip to actually store documents (PDF, Word, Excel) locally comes from dharrison9 on our forums. He noticed that Yahoo push email accounts actually download and save documents locally rather than relying on server downloads with each view. This means you can view your documents offline. The steps are as follows:
    Not without limitation, Mail's PDF/Document viewer only allows you to view documents in portrait and not in landscape. This requires you to pan/scan through the document to read it.

    An alternative hint comes from G4R2 who points out that Mac OS X offers a "Save PDF to iPhoto" option in all printable documents. By printing to iPhoto, users can choose to sync these documents in iPhoto. While the resultant documents are viewable in both Portrair or Landscape, iTunes automatically reduces the resolution on images coming through iPhoto. This makes small text very difficult to read on the iPhone's Photo viewer. Instructions for this procedure are provided:
