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 1 out of5 by fromI hate it!I bought it 18 months ago and I despise it. I'm a 12th grader so I needed it for school but honestly, I don't think you would want this unless you're going to just stare at it. I can't save my work to the computer anymore because I don't have the room. I've used it for maybe 20 or so papers. The longest one being 10 pages. I'm at the point where I stare at it and pray that it will work that day. Randomly, it will turn off and then I won't be able to turn it on for days. I've thought about returning it but I didn't buy any additional warranty things so I'm stuck. This computer makes me want to throw it in the trashcan and pull my hair out. I'm typically a calm and patient person but having essays to write while trying to figure out why my computer won't turn on for an hour isn't exactly relaxing. I honestly despise this computer and I will never buy another one from Microsoft again.

Rated 4 out of5 by fromlove my surface butWant to see future models to have usb charging cable, so they can charge via powerbank. The keyboard / cover with a Bluetooth and direct connection would be nice.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromLove my Surface @The first tablet type device I bought was a Kindle Fire, it was okay to start with. Then an IT person at my work told me about the Microsoft Surface. Said it was an awesome computer. So I went online and checked it out. Liked what I saw and bought my Surface 2 in August, I'm not a tecky but I kept plugging along trying to learn it. I had a glitch thing happen around Feb, and the Customer Service people tried to help me through online chatting to resolve it. They weren't able to do so, and because it was still under warranty, they gave me a brand new one with no problems whatsoever. Since then, I've been playing around with it and I'm so amazed at what this tablet can do. When I show my friends and work mates this computer can do, they are amazed at it too. At one point, when I first got my Surface, I considered getting an Ipad, but now, if decide to get another one, it will be an upgrade, like Surface Pro 2 or 3. I really like the touch screen, makes it so much easier. I can use the keyboard to type and the touch screen to do other things, I don't need a mouse. I would recommend this to a friend and have.

Rated 4 out of5 by fromGreat compact tablet.I bought this tablet about a year ago and I don't have many negative comments about it. I like that the tablet is really versatile and that it comes with all the office software. This tablet would be great for students that are only going to do basic work on the tablet such as a word document or a power point. If you want a tablet that is mostly for playing games then I would say that this is not the tablet for you. The main benefit of this tablet would be its versatility and the compactness as well. This tablet is easy to carry and you can use for many things. At almost 500 dollars I believe that the tablet is a good deal because of all of the software that comes pre-installed.Pros: Versatile, compact, comes with office software. Also has great battery life and easy to use.Cons: Not great for games or music. Speakers are not the best. Also you cant download other software because tablet cannot support it.All in all this is a great little tablet for people who only do basic work and that don't play many games. I believe that the price is fair for what the tablet offers.

Rated 2 out of5 by fromFun Toy but thats it!!My boyfriend bought this for me for work use to do payroll and so if i was ever out me being the manager i could work from home. Now from what i understood this was suppose to be a lap top \ tablet. But what they DONT tell you is dont expect to be able to do much!! No google chrome which is what nearly everything is ran off of now a days. If it isnt in the store with the apps may as well hang it up on trying to download it. I am so disappointed in this product! For what he paid for this thing and not being able to do anything on it its ridiculous! If i wasn't scared i would hurt hes feelings I would of taken it back!!!!!!!!

Rated 2 out of5 by fromA great device... severely lacking.It was a great device while I had it, but then you use it and you just ask yourself... what can I even do with this device?The desktop is useless because it runs Windows RT and you can only run apps from the severely-lacking app store, and just about every app requires you to pay for incredibly simple things.I can't recommend this device at all when it's running Windows RT; there's just nothing to do with it.

Rated 2 out of5 by fromMisleadingI bought this computer because I liked the portability and how light it was, which is good for college use. However, it won't run macros on excel which is essential to many college assignments (at least for me), it won't let you download Google Chrome or Skype or any of the good apps (also essential for many of my assignments), and on top of that, it is buggy and the keyboard keeps disconnecting. If you want all of those things left out by this computer, you will have to pay almost twice as much for the "pro" version. Making customers pay almost a thousand dollars to download free, public programs is a mistake in the eyes of Microsoft to me. Maybe I'll just buy a Mac next time.
