    Sub ReadTextReader
    Dim TextReader1 As TextReader
    File.OpenInput(File.DirRootExternal, "Text.txt"))
    Dim line As String
        line = TextReader1.ReadLine   
    Do While line <> Null
    Log(line) 'write the line to LogCat
            line = TextReader1.ReadLine
    End Sub

    i mean the text file is not just 3 lines.

    it can be non limited line

    1. You can iterate over the list. I just showed an example to get 1. and 2nd line.
    2. You also can use Textreader.

    Putting a positive spin on it: now you have a choice of two solutions:

    1/ Marco's suggestion will give you sequential (one-at-a-time) access to an unlimited number of lines
    2/ Manfred's suggestion will give you random (direct, and in any order) access to a limited number of lines

    and can use whichever works best for this particular task.
