My name is Jim and I live in East Tennessee. This may sound odd but I don't own a surface. I have an ASUS Vivo Tab RT. It runs the Windows RT OS so I'ml assuming everything is very similar. I have already learned a few things by reading the threads on this forum. I didn't really intend to purchase it but my wife wanted a Windows cell phone and off to AT&T we went. They had a deal where with the purchase of the phone, the tablet was $200.00 off and you get a free keyboard. I couldn't pass that up. Being able to connect through AT&T wireless service is a real plus also. I was a bit disappointed until I figured out that it was not a desktop or laptop and didn't operate like one. Starting to really enjoy it now.
