    I upgraded from an Epic 4G to the Galaxy S3. The Epic 4G came with Thinkfree Office Mobile, a suite of programs to view and edit Excel, Word, and Power point files on the Epic 4G.

    What is the equivalent program on the GS3? When I open an Excel file on the GS3, I can view it with Polaris viewer, and there is a splash screen which recommends Polaris Office for editing such files. It also indicates that Polaris Office an be downloaded from the Samsung More Service. I tried looking for Polaris Office on the Samsung App site, but it is not there.

    Any advice?

    There's a free version of Documents To Go, if that helps. Paid version allows full editing. Can't tell you if they'll work on the GSIII (I'm assuming they will).

    I guess I'm more peeved that the GS3 makes reference to getting a free version of Polaris Office whenever I try to open an Excel file, and yet when I go to the Samsung App store, it is NOT there.

    That's interesting. I didn't even know they had their own app store. Man, I need my phone!! I'm basing all of this on my ICS TouchPad!

    If you like thinkfree office the paid version is only $8-$9 bucks.

    Currently there are a couple other office suites with $0.99 promos going in the play store.

    Can you recommend any particular one? I just need to be able to edit Word, Excel (and occasionally power point) files.

    That's my issue. The GS3 mentions that you can download Polaris Office from Samsung More Apps, but it's not there. There should be link to it or it should be preinstalled on the GS3.

    Hallelujah,

    In the Samsung More App (store), they have a free program called Smart Office which allows you to view and edit Microsoft Office docs. It is currently free.

    Click on Samsung Apps, then scroll the tap banner to the left until you get to SPECIAL OFFER Galaxy S3 Launching Celebration. Click on that, then scroll down until you see Smart Office.

    I would assume you could... freeze it. If you find out you need it, then you can always defrost it later.
