LG Rumor Touch Document Viewer-Reader for PDF, Word, Powerpoint, Excel, and Text Files
Look no further!It is already there!
One of the more common questions I get about the LG Rumor Touch other than how to install apps is where users can get an awesome document viewer. "Awesome" usually means a piece of software that can read PDF, DOC, PPT, XLS, and TXT formats. Extra plus points for a document viewer that can read Microsoft Office 2007 formats as well.
Bar none, the document viewer that the LG Rumor Touch ships with pre-installed is the best you will find for this phone. It does all of these "awesome" things and in full color.
You can expect to be able to view documents that you HAVE TO preview, but do not expect to be able to cozy up with a nice PDF, full color, Ebook and just read. Unless you are unusually patient, this will annoy the dickens out of you because you will have to drag a box left to right over and over again to make the text large enough to read.
Long and short of it, the LG Rumor Touch has an excellent document viewer, but do not expect it to be a great ebook reader.

Ok, Great, Now What?
To use the document viewer, you will have to have a microSD card in your phone.
Once the storage space is there, you can take documents you download from say Google Docs, Scribd, DocStoc, Window's Live Office, Zoho Office, or from any other location on the Internet where a document that you want to read is presently stored.
I highly recommend using Opera Mini to find and download these documents because the download features of Opera Mini almost always work when the built in NetFront browser does not always allow downloads.
When downloading a document, make sure you scroll the save menu to SD Card and do not save it in any other folder because you cannot access them without installing a file manager app to go in and move or delete it. You do not need random downloads clogging up your precious internal phone memory.
Of course, you can always load documents the old fashioned way through USB connection to a PC or through Bluetooth. Just drag and drop the files from your PC to your microSD card and use the MASS STORAGE menu in your phone to bring up the file from your microSD.
You can find more information on how to use the pre-installed document viewer in the phone's manual, which is available at Virgin Mobile's website.
