    When I first got the 4s I had no problems with viewing PDFs. I have not done an update and am still on 5.0. But now I cannot view any PDFs at all even trying to use iBooks it will not let me. I am sure if I update or do a restore it would probably fix it. I have already done a hard restart. Just wondering if anyone else has had any issues with viewing PDFs at all or if it's just me?

    What happens when you view PDFs? For me I experience an issue when the PDFs I'm trying to view are big... Third party apps don't work either, not even Adobe's. I think it's a bug with iOS5.

    I'm on 5.0.1 btw.

    Hmmmm. I just opened an 11mb, 800 page PDF in Adobe, iBook and Goodreader without any problems. I'm also on 5.0.1 iPhone 4S. Are you guys getting errors?

    I think I figured out my issue kinda with the PDF's on my phone. I get them every pay cycle from my admin office at work. And they were not downloading all the way or opening. I had roofmonkey send me some random PDFs to my personal email and they work fine. So now I think it was either my work email acting up or just the way our admin was attatching the file.

    I will have to check the size and see what they were. That could be part of my problem too.

    I looked at a couple and they average 90kb which is rather tiny.

    I would say its something from admin then. But you get them just fine. Oh well. Guess its just gonna go insettled. Maybe after next update it will just start working again.
