Default FDX-Contract on iPhone?

Has anyone figured out a good way to get the contract on their iPhone so it's available for offline reading?

I was leaning towards a .pdf reader and just downloading the file, but most of the reviews I've seen say that the reader is not very good for large files.

I just wanted to see if anyone has had any luck with other solutions.

Default email or iDisk

You can simply email it as an attachment and access it that way but the best way is to use the iDisk feature if you are a subscriber to Apple's MobileMe services. Apple makes an iDisk app and anything you drag to your iDisk folder on your computer will be available to you on your iPhone....PDFs, Excel, Word, they all open up just fine.

I use an app called QuickOffice. It allows wireless uploads and you have access to MS Office files while off-line. It takes awhile to load and view large PDF files, but I have not found an app that does bookmarking on PDFs. It's a $20 app but I have found it worth it. I then downloaded a program called PDFSAM (pdfsam.org) which allows you to split large PDF files into smaller files which will load faster and is easier to scroll through. This program is free. I made a folder in QuickOffice for the FOM and then made sub-folders for each individual chapter. A little work to start, but it makes it great once done.

Thanks Speed.
I just downloaded "Discover" and had the contract on my i-phone in about 5 minutes. App is free and allows bookmarking.

I use files lite to store and read pdf files on my iphone. I carry my contract on it as a matter of fact. Saves room in my flight kit.

"Air Sharing" works great and can store up to 10 GB of files and data...ie trips and schedules, airline tickets, guides and gouges for study, and other hip pockets thiings you can't live without...

...your miles may vary...

Best way I've found is to download the HTML file here:

MagicWebFX Downloads

It is in help file format where you can search the contract in "help" format like clicking on help in your toolbar. You can download it for windows or mac, for use on your PC.

Then, download an app on the iphone called ichm. It is an html help file reader application. Instructions on getting the file from your computer to the iphone is included in the app. It's really easy and it works awesome!!

It is the best way to search the contract, hands down.

Let me know if you need any help.

These are all free by the way...

For WM phones run the FDX-Contract.exe file on your PC then copy all the Contract files and folders into a \Contract folder on your device or storage card. The Opera Mobile browser Opera Mobile - Download works very well. Set up a Favorites link in the browser and you're all that and a bag o' chips. Also, ymmv
