    Default File Management?

    i just got an iphone today and am kinda loving it but what seems to be missing is like a My Documents folder type thing on it?

    I have a few PDF's and a few word doc's that i always refer to every few days but for life of me cant work out how to sync a folder of files. i presumed i would maybe need some type of viewer to read them, but thought i could at least put them on the device.

    am i missing something really obvious?

    Nope, there's no way to do this with the iPhone itself out of the box, you'll need to buy an app from the App Store. There's a couple on there at the moment, FileMagnet springs to mind, but the one I'm waiting for is DataCase.

    Bingo, that's the one I couldn't remember the name of. Thanks.

    (no idea which is better, by the way - haven't used any of them)

    Welcome to the forums barton!

    FileMagnet, which is available for $5.99 from the App Store is great for viewing documents like PDFs on your iPhone.

    I use it and it's great, it has a few minor hiccups like occasion 'lock-downs' and closes, but despite this, it's a excellent app.

    if you want to, you can just email the pdf to yourself, and then read it from mail...

    Not short of jailbreaking your iPhone, as far as I know.

    I guess there's always email.

    Read the overview of Files carefully, it is misleading. The files are actually not stored on your phone.
