    I just purchased the 1520 today. I've got pretty much everything set up and running good. The only problem Im running into right now is I can't edit any of the excel documents I email back to my to myself after I got this phone. The phone will only let me view them, that's it. Anyone have any idea what im doing wrong, or not doing? I don't know if this matters but I didn't set up the office 365 account thing. Before today Ive always edited the excel docs I had/needed on my galaxy tablet with no problem. I email said docs from the galaxy tab to this phone. I can't believe that would make a difference.

    It's may be because your documents are Excel 2003-2007. I had to convert all of them to .xlsx files for them to work properly. Hope that helps

    Funny, I had to convert them to .xls for it to work. I could open the .xlsx, but not edit it.

    How do I do that?
    Download it on computer, open it up and use <Save As>

    Thanks.
    I changed the format from .xls to .xlsx and now I can edit on my phone.

    does the file have macros? If yes, you can't edit it.

    Not that well versed in Excel. ;) It does have formulas, but that is about it.

    if its just formulas then you should be able to edit it. I do it quite often. If you have re-checked that the permissions for the files are fine, then I don't know what else could be the problem. Sorry.
