    I was under the impression that office 365 would be free on smaller screens, and that was what talk was about a few months back, only to find out today that I can no longer edit my files on my phone (lumia 730) unless I purchase office 365...

    For a company this big/serious, stating stuff like that and then changing their minds is absolutely not up to par with their name... I'm thinking reverting back to win 8.1 on my phone. I only needed excel to perform simple tasks on my sheets.

    I have no idea but I found something very odd on their Office plans on their website, like buy Office for 1 computer, 1 tablet and 1 phone.. And I was like "so what happens if you own multiple phones that already had free Office ?! " ..

    I'm pretty sure that's a bug. you're supposed to be able to create and edit with some of the fancier features tied to a subscription

    This, and the inability so far to access files on a private SharePoint server, both are problems with the new Office apps on Windows 10 Mobile - both features exist in the version of Office shipped with Windows Phone 8.1 and earlier, so it's logical to expect they would exist again in Windows 10 Mobile.

    There are already feedback items regarding both of these with many upvotes, I expect we will see it corrected (or explained at least) at some point. Find them in the feedback and vote for them.

    I hope this is corrected. It sucks that I can no longer edit my documents.

    Same problem, can not edit my documents in word on my phone mobile 10 when the hell this this **** start? what's next Microsoft maybe you should install a coin slot on the side of the phone that's right a coin slot because we all know the wallet app doesn't work with credit cards! and charge us each time we turn on the dam phone. So much for getting any work done tonight.

    Oh that is just a bug. Try updating the app and reinstalling it. Maybe even hard reset? I had that problem a while ago but it's gone now

    Windows 10 for mobile phones is not yet officially released and that's why office mobile is not yet free. The moment it's officially launched office for devices with smaller screens will be free, with full editing capacity

    I'm on 10572 and just opened, edited, and saved a Word doc. You've run into a bug or are missing an update...
