    Will WP8 have this ability/feature? I realize we can save them in the cloud. I would like the ability to save them directly to the phone (like you can now with a Word document).

    Actually after you open a PDF to your phone it gets saved. Open the Adobe Acrobat app and you can tap to open it. Problem is you can't attach the file to an email or move it to SkyDrive, etc. Hopefully WP8 gives us a little more control over PDFs.

    I'm trying to figure out where the PDF's are actually stored on the phone. I can open them with PDF viewer, I can see the PDF's on my phone, but I can not delete them or find them when I hook my phone to my PC.

    I guess there is no way to delete a PDF file.

    Interesting.....I'd like to be able to delete.

    Maybe there's a way to do so when you connect your phone to your pc/laptop.

    Today came the update for PDF Reader, that allows you to delete files.

    PDF reader has been updated, just checked myself, it allows sharing via Skydrive and the ability to delete.

    Ultimately the way to save is to share it to yourself!?

    I hooked my phone via USB to my computer and couldn't find the PDF's on my phone while searching on my computer. I looked on my phone and they were there when viewing via the PDF viewer. While in the PDF viewer, if you tap and hold, a menu appears that allows you to delete or share (via SkyDrive) with a shared link. Alternately I used my PC and copied PDF files into the Documents folder on my phone. They will then show up in the Office hub / Places / Phone (documents on your phone) but oddly enough not in the PDF reader. From the Office Hub if you tap and hold the PDF document, you can Share...via email, Save To....SkyDrive or Delete. It is odd that if you copy them to your Documents folder on your phone, they don't show up in the PDF reader app. And when you have files that show up in the PDF app, you can't see them in the Office Hub.

    I would suggest using UC browser to download where you get them and upload those PDF,s to Skydrive, I haven't hit a limit before. There are alternatives tho in the marketplace, but off hand it will solve ur problem.

    I think this is, because the PDF Reader is an external app with its own storage area. It's not connected in any way to the Office hub.
