    I'm missing something I guess. I have a WP8.1 phone which came with Office loaded on it. I also have an Office 365 account.
    What I'm wondering is why I would want to use one of my 365 installs for the phone? I have the office apps with access to OneDrive. What advantage is there to me to et up my 365 account on the phone?

    Setting up Office 365 on Windows Phones is for Office 365 for Business only. It will not work with a personal/home account. The advantage for business users is that it allows access to files stored on OneDrive for Business. It does not use an available Office license.

    You wouldn't. If you went onto the account page with a device that already has Office (RT or WP) it already tells you that you have it installed and it won't let you download. I don't know how you would 'set up 365 on the phone'.

    Thanks, I understand now. It's not really so clear to a non-business user.
    the whole taco likes this.

    Thanks. I just upgraded my OneDrive to the terabyte plan with Office 365 and couldn't figure out why I couldn't set up 365 on my phone.
