So, I tap the Office tile and then Office 365.
It says that I need to set up my Office 365 account.
I tap the set up button and it gives me choices of Outlook, Hotmail, etc...
I try and use my e-mail accounts, but it says that I already have an account set up for that (which is true).
Why doesn't it just go ahead and use it?
It doesn't give me an option of creating a new Office 365 account, either.
How am I supposed to start using it?
I can open the sample documents, but I can't create something new.
If I click the folder icon (it says new), it asks me for a SharePoint site (the icon doesn't say "new SharePoint site", so it's kind of un-intuitive).

Is no one else having problems with this?
Am I doing something wrong?
I was using the Office 365 preview on my Windows 8 computer, using my Microsoft account (the same one that I'm using on my phone).

I'm not sure if this is an outlook 365 account.
It's my Microsoft account.
I don't have an account on outlook.com, if that's what you're referring to.
I'm assuming that I shouldn't have to create something new just to use it.

Joshua, If I'm reading your issue correctly it is my understanding that "Office 365" is a paid service and different type of account than "Hotmail, Live, Outlook and Xbox" services. I have an "Office 365" account and its login info is different than my "MS live" accounts.

I may have just realized something.
I was thinking that office 365 was the office on the phone but I don't think it is.
I think its just an option, like phone or SkyDrive.
I realized that you can swipe over and there is a plus that you can use to create new word or excel files.
It doesn't seem that you can create a PowerPoint file though.
I was thinking office 365 was how you open word or excel.
