    It is part of system app's you cannot delete, you can only pin and unpin it on startscreen.

    Wait. What?

    You deleted Office? Why? Why buy a windows phone that comes with office as a perk of the OS just to delete it?

    It can't actually be removed as its part of the OS. Looks like you're stuck with it.

    There is no additional charge for Office on WP8, is there (like a licensing fee or renewal)? I don't think there is, but not sure and this looks like a good thread to ask in.

    Two schools of thought
    1. Its included in the price of your phone and contract
    2. MS made it part of the OS as a perk to own WP.

    Either way you wont actually ever make a payment or renewal for office on your phone

    Schweet.

    Although I have to say, the way I use Office doesn't work on my phone (I use too many advanced features that aren't supported). But I do intend to play with it a little and see what I can use it for on the phone. It would be nice if the full PC version would have a Save for Phone option that would strip out complex formatting and other features that aren't supported in the phone version.

    Ive found it quite useful - I made a custom budget spreadsheet in excel which is great to update whenever I make a purchase or have to pay a bill on the move so no complicated formulas. Found it useful for reviewing powerpoint presentations before meetings and word is great for quick edits on documents - I found that taking it for what it is and not expecting too much from it has made me use it more.

    its nice when you have to view a .doc or .ppt, although that really depends. I'm a student so I have to do that stuff all the time, but the next guy, maybe not so much

    its just one of those nice-to-haves
