    Has anyone been able to log into idisk on their iPhone. I've got some important pdfs that I've stored on idisk (medical literature) that I'd like to have access too when I'm in the hospital and need to refer to them.

    Thanks.

    You might try igetmobile or a similar program as an alternative. The files would need to be on your computer but it would allow you to have remote access.

    Weird thing happened, I was finally able to access iDisk from my iPhone. I didn't do anything different. The unfortunate part is that when I clicked on one of my pdf files, it wouldn't open up. Looks like I'll have to do the stupid method of emailing pdfs to myself and opening it from the mail program to view them. I sure hope 1.1.3 and the SDK will fix all the software shortcomings of the iPhone.

    I think there is a 10mb limit on pdf files this could possibly be the reason it didn't work for you.

    10 mb limit? Where? On the phone? In iDisk? Please elaborate.

    I remember hearing that there was a limit built into the phone that would keep you from downloading PDF's larger than 10mb's. I think it applies to other file types as well.

    I found this on the iPhone developer site.

    "Resource and Execution Limits

    Any downloaded resource, whether it’s HTML, CSS, JavaScript, images, or non-streamed media, must be less than 10 MB. The 10-MB limit applies to the encoded size of images. There is also a limit to the decoded size of images. See “Optimize Images.”
