    I recently purchased an Iphone and have my work email setup on it. There is a PDF file that is sent, I get a message to download the whole message as text once I do that; I click on the PDF attachment, I get a message that my reader is not the current version and need a new version and directs me to the adobe website. I've updated my Iphone software and Itunes.
    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    The PDF could have been created with a new version of Acrobat and the iPhone OS can't support it.

    Some PDF features on the iPhone are limited, depending upon the complexity of the PDF file you are trying to open. You can always find other apps to try as well.

    Thanks for the responses. I've looked at some apps and haven't seen any PDF readers that work with an attachment in an email. Can anyone recommend one?
