There is a workaround available. It is the iSilo formatted WtPubs files. There files are created by a number of brothers & sisters spending huge amounts of time to extract the data from the official WtLib cd-rom and create a set of linked HTML files. They then use the iSiloX program <http://www.isilox.com/> to convert their HTML into a compiled iSilo file.
While iSilo is a commercial product http://www.isilo.com the brothers making WtPubs are not connected with them and receive no money from them.
They use iSilo because the creation tool is available free and the iSilo folks support many different platforms including the iPhone®, iPodTouch, iPad Blackbery®, Palm OS®, Pocket PC, Windows®, Windows® CE Handheld PC, Windows Mobile™ Smartphone, Symbian UIQ, Symbian Series 60, Symbian S60 3rd Edition, Android, and so forth
In order to continue to obtain permission to create these files the brothers and sisters doing so agreed to no longer distribute them on the internet. While many who are not part of the group that creates the WtPub files have set up their own file sharing on the web the only APPROVED Way to obtain a copy is to locate someone in your area with the files.
T-tools stopped sharing in distributing these files in December 2007. In 2008 and 2009 the WtPub folks had their own Yahoogroups. They closed these groups December 2009.
So at this time you need to start asking around locally to find someone nearby that has the files.
IF YOU ALREADY KNOW SOMEONE USING THE LIBRARY ON A NON WINDOWS PHONE ask them if they are using the iSilo formatted WtPub files. IF they are those are the same files you need. The files are the same regardless of platform, it is the program that changes, there being different versions of iSilo for the different platforms.
A group to help you find other PDA using JWs in your area may or may not be of help in your quest.
