Well , You cant use that stylus for capacitive TCs ! But there are many styluses available which have some rubbery stuff at their end ! try Dinodirect.com , They have alot of those styluses !

100% no! You need a capacitive stylus which is usually a metallic body and a rubbery tip. Resistive stylus could be anything which you can apply pressure with.

You can always create a stylus using antistatic paper ..
all you have to do is to tie antistatic paper on the tip of anything. and it will work like any other stylus..

as they have mentioned, yes you can use stylus.
But it MUST be a C class stylus. No other kind will work.
BTW as far as I know, the S-Pen (stylus from the Galaxy Note) is NOT a capacitive stylus so... i think it doesn´t works on any other smartphones, and neither it does on some tablets either.
