    Use Activesync to connect your device to the PC. Open Windows Explorer. Click on Mobile Device. You can then copy the files to your phone. Open File Manager on your phone. Go to the folder where you copied the file. Click on the file. The word file viewer program should start.

    When i click on the file is says, There is no application with "word file". Run the application first and then open this file inside the application. I did what you said i draged them into a folder i created in mobile device.

    Are you talking about a DOC file made from Microsoft Office. I have a Sprint Q. It comes with an Office File Viewer program. It should be able to open and read those files. Are you using Office 2007. It may have some compatibility issues with files stored in that format. If so, try saving in a previous version of Word.

    Windows Mobile can be pretty restrictive about what it can or cannot read. Try to save the document in Wordpad as Word document in the PC and then copy to your phone. You should be able to read it then.
