    Editing and view Microsoft Word and Excel docs?

    Advertisement



    Is this possible on this device? I know I can view them, but I've needed to edit a few and have been unable too. Should I have gotten a phone with the dreaded Windows Mobile platform?

    You should be able to view word/excel files on your phone. For editing, you'll need an application like eOffice.

    eoffice looks to be what I need. Only problem is that it's $99. I just need to decide if I want to return the phone and get a mogul for $50 more or pay the $99 and keep the 8830. Decisions.

    That is one of the biggest drawbacks to using a BB. RIM is touting the 8830 as the phone for business people, but it cannot even view some of the basic MS Office applications, which I would have thought would be a must for a Phone to be classified as geared for businesses.

    It is geared towards business users. Even busines users using a PC with Microsoft Windows still has to pay extra and purchase Microsoft Office, it's not included with the PC (except w/ trial versions).

    Blackberry does not assume nor foot the bill on the assumption every user needs an "Office" type program. You do have many choices though when it comes to purchasing the software needed to view these documents.

    Dataviz looks like it will be a good program, but that's just from pics. Right now I'm thinking of staying with my 8830 instead of switching to a Mogul. But once a good software program is out there, I'm all for it.
