I was told it wouldn’t be a problem getting Office 365 on my Samsung Galaxy S II X (Android).  

Doesn’t seem to be working out that way.  MS doesn’t exactly make it easy to find out, either, which is really rather pathetic….but typical UNfriendly and “Help” challenged Microsoft, what did I expect, a simple list telling me if my device was supported or not???  Haha!
Can I put Office 365 on my 'older' Android device?


Mobile phone details:
Model # SGH-T989D
Android version:  4.0.3.

The email I got today from Microsoft only says iPhone. I am an Office 365 subscriber.

This is disappointing news for me, because I was lead to believe Office 365 would work without a hitch for my Android.  Guess I'll need to reassess my mobile phone situation, but what a convoluted affair this technology business can be.  Just about need a degree to ensure things will work together in unison, and be prepared to spend a good portion of your time figuring it out.  Makes one think that there must be a better way, but I don't think there is.
