    Documents To Go or Microsoft Office Mobile

    My Q9h has Documents To Go installed for Excel, Word, PowerPoint. Is it better to keep it or get Microsoft Office Mobile? If I go with Microsoft, can I change the default app to the Microsoft Office app (or will it when I install it)? Is it possible to get the Office without paying for it?

    I wanted the ability to edit the documents...that is why I was interested. You have scared me off a bit on the Office...are you saying the 6.1 they just released is not very good?

    you can edit documents with documents to go

    im saying that if your phone didnt come with Office Mobile then the only other way to get it would be a hacked version

    Email said for the Q but WM 6 so I guess we're talking Q9M,H or C.
    Deleted the email so can't fwd but I did click on the link and noticed the WM6. Priced about $35-$40 if I remember right.

    yup you are correct...
    there it is...for WM6 only...couldnt find it because i was looking at WM5 Q but looked under Q9h and there it was the last one under 'document management'
    and its $49.95

    so then if you have a WM6 device you can purchase it at www.handango.com or get documents to go for $29.95

    OK...so now I am back to the original questions..."Is it better to keep it or get Microsoft Office Mobile? If I go with Microsoft, can I change the default app to the Microsoft Office app (or will it when I install it)?" I guess the question is really, has anyone tried the new office and do you like it?

    Thanks...I knew it was pricey and I wasn't interested. Started to wonder....when you're old you'll understand.

    well like i said before...if you like docs to go and it works then keep it. if you need to upgrade to a new docs to go to get Office 07 to work then its still cheaper at 30 bucks than Office 6 at 50 bucks

    yes you can make office 6 your 'default' office program...but you do it after its installed

    well then i guess it comes down to personal preference

    office mobile is a microsoft product so it should support the actual files that much better

    and from being in the forum the docs to go people arent the 'greatest' with tech support...then again im not sure microsoft would be either...lol

    but i do know that after a new release comes out docs to go no longer has tech support for you or allows you to upgrade for less than full price...(myself and rudeboy)

    I'd say go for the MicroSoft Mobile. I got the email this morning and for $39 it's worth it. Not sure if a discount code will work with this application - or if Handango even has one out right now.

    I got the same email.

    The new version of Microsoft Office Mobile support all Office documents except Access.

    Designed for Windows Mobile 6 it does sound like it is work the money.
