    It cannot be used on the 360... I tried purchasing a full game using my credit and it didnt even show my "Microsoft balance" as a payment option. I'll try my surface when i get home tonight.

    Finally got around to seeing if it worked on the RT or Windows8 the only place I see it working is on the phone.

    I am assuming that you had to buy the phone from Verizon to be eligible for this? I bought my phone off newegg but my service is thru Verizon. True?

    Yeah, you don't have to buy it from Verizon. Just do a search of the forum and you'll find this, as well as a link to the site you have to register on.

    I edited out the only part that was relevant to my question for you.

    You didn't do it for me. I am capable of clicking a link and reading instead of asking others to do it for me.

    You insinuated that you helped me out with your original reply, but you didn't. Helping me out would've been concisely answering the question I asked rather than posting verbatim something I already had access to. Sure, it's not your job to answer my questions and provide me compendiums and whatnot, but if you don't want to do that then don't do it. Or, if you want to reply with snarky, unhelpful responses, go ahead and do that, but don't be surprised when you get them back in return.

    What I did was tried to encourage you to look for yourself instead of depending on others to do so for you. Apparently that is not a method that works with you. But you cannot truthfully state that my reply was unhelpful. It contained the answer to your question.

    I'm so confused... you asked what the paid version gives you. You yourself just said you had access to the answer. Why ask the question? What more could you have asked for then what was provided?

    Thank you Jesus for teaching me how to fish. You don't understand the difference between answering a question and answering a question helpfully? Just because your reply contained the answer to my question does not necessarily make it a helpful answer. You took a link that I clearly had access to (you quoted me quoting it) and copied and pasted it verbatim, meaning that you didn't actually do anything for me at all except waste my time (and yours too and everyone reading this thread now). If you asked me a for a quote from the Bible and I gave you a link to the entire Bible, I would not consider that a helpful reply even though my reply "contained the answer to your question." Yes, I am acknowledging that I asked for a compendium of the app benefits rather than reading it myself, but if you had no interest in being helpful (i.e., answering the question succinctly), then don't answer it at all.

    Why ask the question? To get a succinct compendium of the answer, one verified as accurate by another user.

    By asking a question that you had the capability to answer yourself by putting forth a bit of effort, you selfishly wasted the time of anyone who might answer. If the answer had not been right there in the link you provided, that would be different.

    Not true. The person who chose to answer made his or her own decision regarding whether to answer. If that person found my question selfish, and this bothered them, he or she had no obligation to respond. That is, I didn't waste your time, you wasted it.

    Really asking the question only wasted your time... Why anyone would ask a question on a forum that might take hours, or days to respond, when they could just look it up and find the answer in less then 60 seconds is the real issue here. It's the same thing as starting a new thread when there is already one about the topic you are talking about. Take the time to do the very easy research rather then make a post is why you got such a snarky answer. Now we can move past this... 1 worthless post leads to 7 worthless posts.

    Tho i do appreciate giving me a time waster here at work :P #iseewhatyoudidthere

    It didn't waste my time: replying to all the responses probably did, though. It took less time for me to ask that question than it did to do the research on my own. Not a lot of time either way, but if time was that big of a concern to any of us, we wouldn't be on these (or any) message boards. So, I don't feel bad for asking questions, even if some people try to make me feel so. Truth is, anybody who has the time to peruse online discussion boards has free time. Nevertheless, to rebut your point: 1) anyone using an online discussion forum is aware of the asynchronous nature of it; I wasn't in a hurry for a reply, as is the same with most people who use them; 2) as I said in an earlier post, asking the question brings other benefits that independent research cannot: mainly, confirmation from other users that the features reported are in fact reported accurately, as well as their opinion on the features and whether or not they are worth it. This is something I cannot achieve on my own before purchasing the app. It's the reason people ask friends who have experienced something (a video game, a movie, etc.) for their opinion on it. It's valuable information from an independent third party, in this case, a third party from a community of users who usually know what they are talking about and have high standards. Thus, it was valuable to me to ask the question and read a helpful answer. That I never received such a helpful answer, well, that is the nature of online discussion forums. I've gotten used to them. Conversations stray from the topic, people start new threads for old topics, etc. It happens. I try my best to help people out when they ask questions rather than lecture them or criticize them, and the like. I'm sure I've don't that occasionally too, though, but, hey, everyone gets in snooty mood once in awhile.
