FAQ

How do I activate my Surface and sign up for a plan?

1. Follow the Setup process. When you get to the "Get Online" screen, choose "Wi-Fi". You'll set up Mobile Broadband AFTER you set up Wi-Fi.

2. Once your Wi-Fi setup is complete, click the "Network Connections" link to launch the AT&T AllAccess app, or you can just launch the AT&T AllAccess app by itself. Once you're in the app, just click the "Activate" link. That will take you to the AT&T website where you can set up a new data plan or associate your Surface to your existing AT&T data plan.

I'm going to travel to a different country; do I need to change any settings on my device?

Check with your mobile broadband operator to learn about international data plan options. You may also be able to purchase a prepaid SIM or mobile broadband data plan from a local operator upon arrival in the country you’re travelling to. If you do neither of these, then you may want to change some settings on your Surface. Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, and then tap or click Settings. Tap or click the wireless network icon, and under Mobile broadband, tap or click the network you want to use. If Roam automatically is checked, be sure to clear it. Then tap or click Connect. You can also simply turn off mobile broadband, and only use a Wi-Fi connection when it is available.

Ratings and reviews

Rated 5 out of5 by fromGreat Windows Device!This is exactly what I need when I'm on the road.  It's lightweight, responsive, and it has the ultimate productivity app (Microsoft Office).  The 1080p screen is nice -- it's nice enough that I don't miss the retina display of my ipad 3 even when I'm reading an e-book. The "type cover" is also as comfortable to use as a full size keyboard.So far, the only hardware issue I have with this is its anemic speaker (my iphone 5 sounds better when playing music) -- it's usable but the "tinny" sound is obvious.  As far as apps go, it has all the apps I need right now, but it could definitely benefit for having more available.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromLove mine!I bought this a week back now and I have to say I love it. Its so speedy. Web pages open instantly. The Tegra 4 is really a beast of a processor and the battery life is great too. The ability to view apps side by side is awesome. I can check my email while I watch youtube videos.I don't understand the criticism about it not running legacy apps. People don't say the same thing about IPADs not being able to run MAC OS apps. With that said the Microsoft store still lacks a few apps but I think that will come in the long run. IE is surprisingly very good.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromIt has Miracast supportI took a chance on the new Surface 2. For my work flow, it is very important that I connect wirelessly to our boardroom display. We have an office tablet that supports WiDi, but I wanted my own for personal use as well. I had scoured reviews for information on wireless display support, but nothing confirmed it. I asked Microsoft support, and again no confirmation. However, I tried it this morning at work, and it works really well - a little lag, but not an issue for work use or content streaming. Overall, I am very happy with my new Surface 2 - it's a great balance for work and personal use.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromSo glad I switched!I bought this recently to see Windows 8.1 and the kickstand. I experienced that it was worth the money and a lot more useful than the ipad!

Rated 5 out of5 by fromBest in classI bought this after returning a different tablet. This works great. I Love it. I did not expect this to run every program out there, and it doesn't. It does however, do everything I expected out of a tablet PC running Win 8 RT. The MS office software that runs and comes free with the Surface 2 is outstanding. I have no0t had a problem with it.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromMuch nicer than my iPad 2The Surface 2 is a great tablet. A full sized USB port, a keyboard cover, and micro USB out make this much more flexible than an iPad. My Surface works with my 10 year old network printer and it also works with my Logitech wireless trackball (with the USB dongle). The Windows Store is starting to have some really nice apps in there, and I am looking forward to seeing what the future brings! My only wish is that Microsoft could figure out how to get other browsers onto Windows RT, such as Firefox.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromYahoo! Excellent Device!I just received my Surface Pro a couple of weeks ago. I can't believe all the things that it can do that I could not do on my Mac and IPad. Excellent screen and I can easily connect to my work and access everything I need to..... very simple. So far, any app. I needed was on the Windows Store. I just received my Type 2 keyboard and I love it.... although the Touchscreen is very good the keyboard allows me to do more work related items. Thank you Microsoft! Although I still use Apple devices I love my Surface Pro and Windows 8.1. This little puppy goes with me wherever I go......... Happy... Happy!

Rated 5 out of5 by fromGoodbye iPads, hello productivity.I parted with a fully loaded 128GB iPad and got a Surface 2 just two weeks ago...and I've never looked back. This is what tablets should have been all along. I've not been a Microsoft fan for much of the past 10 years but the Surface has sold me on their newer products...so much so that my iPhone is about to get replaced with a Nokia 1520. Keep up the great work Microsoft, I have a feeling you're finally back on the right track. Also, your Portland, Oregon store has some of the best staff I've ever had the pleasure of meeting.
