1) I'm not sure why I would need to create a word document on my BB. What I need is to be able to open and edit documents that are sent to me via email.
2) When I select "New" in the menu, it tells me that the BB comes with Standard Edition and I would have to pay to upgrade to the Premium Edition to create a new document anyway.
3) It dawned on me that what you are saying is that a work-around to upgrading is to save a blank word document to my device using the Desktop software and then open that and edit it.
4) Which brings me back to point #1.
I don't mean to be pissy with you. You're a great moderator and have been very helpful to me in the past. I guess I'm just a little miffed that this awesome new feature that was touted as a big upgrade in 4.5 is essentially useless to me at this stage.
As a side note, I had a fully-functional, free version of Documents To Go 5 years ago on my Treo, and I can't figure out why RIM can't get their s**t together and include a decent document management solution on their devices. I've been using Repligo, which is great, but you can't edit documents and it costs me (my company) $79 a year.
