    If read your post I conclude that your 640 is still on 8.1. In 8.1 you have a "Office" app. In w10 however, there is no "Office" app but you have Word, Exel and PowerPoint as separate apps. (should be preinstalled)
    Basically you do not need a 365 subscription to use Word (or Exel or PowerPoint) on your phone.
    Probably there is a "bug" in your 950.
    What you should do is uninstall the Word app (on your 950) and install it again (use the STORE app on your phone). Then it should work.

    Good luck

    I had this issue pop up once or twice and restarting the device seemed to correct it.

    I had this issue as well. Had to uninstall the app and reinstall it. I posted about it a while back and had a few responses, so it's not an isolated incident.
