Before deciding to sell my Surface 2 I went to Best Buy to check out the Pro 2. The sales lady at Best Buy said don't waste your money on the Pro 2 just Jailbreak the Surface 2. She told me the Best Buy techs would tell me how to do it. She did warn that the warranty would be void.
It seems strange that the 256 Surface Pro 2 is unavailable for sale. I thought it
Was just Popularity but now I'm starting to believe Microsoft is holding back on supply
Because of quality problems with this Surface Pro 2.
I have the original type cover from my Surface RT I sold. I was going to purchase the new backlit type cover but it has a terrible feel beside and on the trackpad similar to the rough feel of the touch cover. Why did Microsoft ruin a good type cover? Yes I'm fussy.
I have decided that my Surface 2 is as limiting as my IPad was. I was planning on a Surface Pro 2 with 256g. But my cameras on the Surface 2 are high quality. Why did Microsoft stick with old technology from the original Surface Pro in the Surface Pro 2?
I realize I can use Outlook but it is easier to use the Mail App that came with the Surface 2. My problem is the emails in the inbox always delete after a day or so. Can't I make a change so I decide when to delete them?
So if anyone turns on their Surface and nothing happens hold down the on button for 15 seconds, wait 2 seconds and hit the start button again. It should reset. It has happened to me twice and hopefully I just don't have a dysfunctional Surface 2.
Would someone try and duplicate my problem. HuffPost has intensive graphics and script and I have found that most times it will not load an article and the comments. It just crashes. If I am lucky to load the complete page the Surface 2 is so underpowered I can't type a comment. Thanks for trying.
I purchased a screen saver and installed. Problem is the plastic has only one hole for the camera and the the single mic and warning light is covered by the screen protector. Sadly the front speaker is now useless. Any companies make one with the holes cut. YES the RT had 2 mics in front not...
