    But, if you were the team manager of an Indy 500 team, would you have your driver drive a prototype car?
    Ah, I didn't realize you were the business equivalent of an Indy 500 driver. If you're that important, then I guess it is a vital issue (that for some reason can't be addressed with the web version for now). Good luck finding a phone that doesn't have any issues at all though, I've never seen one.

    I'm not important. The folks I am meeting with (team members, customers) are. Not being able to pull up a document is a problem. In the actual case this morning, we're with a $600/hr lawyer and can't pull up a document; plus everyone else's time? Wow...

    Well, I'm not in business, but if I needed to meet with an expensive lawyer I think I would have my documents all prepared on a more appropriate device, like a laptop. I'm not sure why anyone would go to a meeting like that with just a phone. But hey, if a 950XL works for you, that's great.

    LOL what kind of phone are you used to? I trust my phone as much as any PC I've ever used.

    Sorry for a poor example. The point I'm trying to make is that the people we all work and interact with, their time is valuable. Wasting other people's time is not in one's interest. To spend this type of money on an X3, which is supposed to be for business, and for it not to work for the most basic need of feeding up information, when far a far less costly device, or weighty laptop, can do it... Actually, never mind what the X3 costs. It's just unacceptable to waste other people's time.

    I wasn't commenting on the trustworthiness/reliability of a phone (I've had some very good ones, including the x3). I was saying that, in that example, it doesn't seem like a phone is a great solution period, any phone. Maybe I'm just the only one that wouldn't use it like that. Whatever.

    The solution getting back the files on the X3's OneDrive app was kindly provided by Daniel Rubino here.

    Bottom line, the X3 is not business-ready. Consider it if you're looking to use it as a general purpose, consumer phone and fall-back to a laptop for business.

    Quite much in R&D.
    I think the $799 retail should cover it

    Yes indeed makes sense to dip their toes to test the waters instead of diving head first.
    You can't "Tip Toe" if you are asking a "Cannonball" price....
