    I called Costco to ask about getting the phone any other way besides a 2 year contract. They wouldn't let me. I asked them if they had additional fees if I was to cancel the service after I bought the phone. The customer service said no, once you buy the phone you have 90 days to return it...

    Thanks. Yal make good points. I may be fairly new to android phones, but can they access office files like word, excel and all that? Is there an Outlook app to check mail, calenders and to-do lists? Is there any way to pull up one note? I know dropbox has an app, but It would be useless if...
