QuickOffice Pro after Belle

Well, here we go again.  After I updated my phone to Anna I had to downgrade back to Symbian 3 in order to get QuickOffice Pro to work.  When I updated to Belle the Pro version dissappeared and was replaced with the viewer version.  I reinstalled Pro (the install claimed to have worked) and QuickOffice Pro is now on my phone, but any attempt to actually access a file causes the phone to lock-up requiring that the battery be pulled out to restore.  I am waiting to see what QuickOffice has to say about getting it to work, but was just wondering how installing QuickOffice Pro has worked for others with the C6-01 after the Belle update?  Quite frankly, I am so tired of messing around with the quirky nature of updates and QuickOffice that I am about ready to just get rid of it and hope that Microsoft Office for Belle becomes available as promised.

Re: QuickOffice Pro after Belle

OK, I'll uninstall and try again. Just to be sure, you have tried using it, right? Mine installed without problems and it looks fine, it's just when you try to create a new document that it gets all wonky. Thanks.

Re: QuickOffice Pro after Belle

Nope. I uninstalled QuickOffice Pro, reinstalled (it seemed to install fine), rebooted phone, opened QuickOffice and was able to write and save a test file, but as soon as I tried to open it the phone frooze solid again. I'll wait to see what QuickOffice has to say, but I'm also going to try to see what MS Office for Belle is like. If it's at all usable I think I'll just quite messing with QuickOffice.

Re: QuickOffice Pro after Belle

Well Quickoffice got back to me and confirmed that it is NOT compatible with Belle. Let's see, the most common Office app on Symbian is.not compatible with a well known update and Nokia is still selling it on their store even after tons of reviews from buyers saying it doesn't work and that they were ripped off. Nokia is history except maybe in India. There are just too many options to have to bother with this lack of execution.

Re: QuickOffice Pro after Belle

Hi torchaj, that's what I meant when I said that maybe they have a different version in some areas, but here is the cut and paste reply I got from QuickOffice, and if you don't believe me it is easy to check the reviews on the Nokia store which are down to a 2 with tons of people in the EU complaining about it. It may be working on your phone (and there was some Dude claiming it worked on his on another forum until he came back complaining that his phone was locked!:

Dear Ronald,

Thank you for contacting Quickoffice Customer care. Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience this issue might have caused you.
I'm sorry for the delay in responding to you.

I'm afraid that Quickoffice is not fully compatible with Symbian Belle. Our developers are currently working on a new version compatible with Symbian Belle.

Please let me know, if you have any other questions.

Thank you and have a great day,
Eugeniy

Re: QuickOffice Pro after Belle

By the way thanks for offering the file, but I have it - the problem isn't the initial install that goes well, it's what happens afterwards and it doesn't seem to happen to everyone since it hasn't happened to you. Anyhow, thanks for your help I really appreciate it!

Re: QuickOffice Pro after Belle

after many quik office issue with nokia c7  and firtst anna and now belle its getting rather annoying

 

quickoffice have at all time been very good and helpful and ready to refund payments i have made to re new attempts to get office working

 

anyway i had got to a point where on symbian anna one of my c7 had office quick working and other just would not

 

then along comes bell this week and i again install it on phone to lose both office quick

 

so i paid office quick 7 dollars with 73 per cent off and thought it had worked but then found on opening wotd files it just closes down each time

so was getting frustrated as spreadsheet is fine

 

but by accdent i found a workthrough that may help others

 

 

ok by using file and scrolling down to file vwanted it wont open word file

by opening up quick office and selecting the files it wontr open

 

but by using search button on phone it refereshes the document and opens it

 

and allows full editing so i have to ignore the quick office button and the normal files c e f etc but using search  i can find any doc file i want and open and edit

 

hope this helps others

Re: QuickOffice Pro after Belle

to add to above i was also able to use same office download link to download onto my second phone so for 7 dollars i am sorty of up and running

 

ok annying i cant make use of quick office application tab and use things like recent documents but one can still use create new document but one has to wait a few hours for any saved document to appear in the search not sure how long to wait or why it makes one wait but i assure all new word doc tests i have done appeared later time

 

 

also sending back to a pc or laptop still opens the file

 

its odd why it wont open normally but fact is your new wrod docs and old are all there and working by this search application method

 

i at first had thought all my docs were corrupted or gone permanently

 

luckily this is not the case

 

again to reiterate use the search application on your phone and try opening doc from there

Re: QuickOffice Pro after Belle

eugenie and her team at quick office have been a major help for me in last 2 yrs of nokia muck ups

 

they at all times have shown how good customer service should be

sending me new direct links

 

informin me direct of latest software when they had updated last time to fix a past nokia problem

refunding me money when i attemtped timed to try again and did not suceed

 

i cant think of a finer customer service to think i am in hertfordshire uk and they in usa get back to me without even using thr ticket system i normaly reply on old emails ticket as i see it all same issue ie nokia and office problems when nokia change things again

 

never a wrod of complaint from them at quick office

 

courteous and helpful to the last

 

nokia may be nice idea if rather than just having these forums you actually took notice of people like quick office do

Re: QuickOffice Pro after Belle

Did any one of you perform a factory reset with data deletion before updating to belle? If not, try it and the reinstall belle. You shouldn't have problems with quick office.

Re: QuickOffice Pro after Belle

blitzkid are you sure your quick office is working fine ie have you actually edited and saved word files ??

 

if your is ok then you are in a minortiy many of us had issues with both anna and now belle and beleive me its not as simple as resetting your phone

 

and indeedd why should we when we hook up to nokia it tells us to click and update our phone sureyl that means threy do it all for you ie the phone back up and resets and then reloads new software then reloads your data

 

so why6 shoulfd we have to keep resetting it manually

 

 

and indeeed losing more and more stuff in the process each time

 

i lost 5 apps when symban belle reset my phone ok i caqn get 4 back ok but why shuold i have to?

 

one with all my blood pressure recrods for last 2 yrs totaly went and i cant get it orking at all

 

so all my viatal records i trusted to put on an app and now all gone

 

i dont blame trhose doing the apps i blame nokia why shuols people doing the apps have to spend time ans money redouing there apps to satisfy the tech heads atr nokia who wqant to change things all the time

 

if that happens then we will have less free apps and prices will go up on those we have

 

ie if quickoffcie spend money 3 times in 12 months ammedning quickoiffice who do you think will pay for it ??

 

we will

 

they will say ok you can have updated quick office but at 100 dollars etc as we can no longer affrod to keep updating everytime nokia update

Re: QuickOffice Pro after Belle

I also face the same problem. Installation went perfectly. When try to open file, it shows error "unable to open" and close automatically.
In addition to the above I lost the following application

Slide Answer
Lotus Traveller
Boldbeast recorder

These are the BONUSES i got when I updated to Belle.

NOKIA is keeping quiet with the all our comments. Not even have the courtesy to reply.

It was a very wrong decision to update to Belle.
All these applications was working fine with ANNA

Re: QuickOffice Pro after Belle

Folks I originally posted this problem and was surprised to see the number of responses. It ranges from people saying there's no problem at all to QuickOffice telling me in writting that it is not compatible and the huge number of people in the Nokia store complaining that it won't work. The insanity of this situation became clear when Nokia allows an app that is stated not to be compatible to be sold to unsuspecting buyers in its store, and when I tried to ask QuickOffice for more help it turns out their email address was giving me a bounceback. Every phone manufacturer has problems with a large update, but I have never seen anything like this where problems are not even repeatable since it seems that almost every user is having different problems. I solved the problem as far as it pertains to me. I can't use a phone that has no word processor available for it so I've moved on to a Nexus. It has its own share of problems, but nothing compared to what I'm used to with Nokia. And finding a word processor that works with it is not an issue. I wish you all the best trying to resolve this but in all honesty why beat a dead horse? It's time to move on to a modern operating system.
