I have searched all night... I traced retraced my steps in and out of buildings. Looked online using the trend micro app. It is nowhere to be found.
This is the first time that I wished it had cellular and GPS. When needed to locate my iPad, even if it was just in doors, I could find it.
I am extremely sad today. No it is not a life, but it was mine 😞. If it was stolen, the only place it was potentially left was in my car while my cleaning team cleaned the church. I was only me from my team there to begin with.
I am just sad and exhausted.

Maybe WP Central could provide a database of stolen Surface devices with the corresponding MAC addresses. ?*** Forza Windows Phone 8 ***
Many answers here in my battery tips & tricks post: http://forums.wpcentral.com/htc-8x/2...ps-htc-8x.html
Please help me with my WP8 Sync App idea called "WP8 ClonePhone": http://forums.wpcentral.com/windows-...lonephone.html

I have the serial numbers. My contact information is all over the surface and the padded case. I would really give a nice reward too.
I can't stand a thief... But I have no evidence it was stolen or not. I am trying my best to not overlook any places where I was the screw up...
Thanks for the support friends. I wonder if Microsoft has a database like the one proposed above.

Filed a police report yesterday. I even searched yesterday and this morning again in all of the areas. I made phone calls and checked my personal security cameras... No new clues or developments... I am continuing to rummage through Craigslist...
I have to accept that it is gone... Just yesterday while working on my bike. I needed to look up something... Reached for my Surface and no go... Made me sad again, lol. Had to use my phone 😜, of all things right?!
I contacted Microsoft support about a remote wipe and remote location information, but they were not too helpful. They said that once a police report is filed, the police could contact them to locate the device...
One of my only concerns is my data on my memory card... I set mine up in a way that my user doc were stored on the SD card and not the device. Does OneNote save data to the my documents folder on the surface? When someone wipes a surface, does it wipe the card?

I am so sick and tired of thievery. I had a couple of bicycles stolen last year. What kind if people are these? Even if I am responsible and lost my surface, the surface, the case, and papers enclosed all have my name and a form of contact.
😠😐😒😌😓😢 The range of emotions... Hard to let go.

I had the trend micro everywhere beta install which is supposed to help locate your device, but I have nit been successful with that...
I contacted Microsoft about a remote search and wipe and an engineer is supposed to contact me later.
This has been such a week! I'm am holding on, but I guess it is time to consider its replacement... Makes me kinda want a pro just because I can install other location software...

Well, no headway... Just about given up... I'm already looking for a replacement.
I'm considering a pro, but just kinda think it is not the tablet I want... I like that I could put any application on it, but just what applications would I really want on it? I love the simplicity of the rt. I was never worried of it overheating in my bag due to it automatically waking up...
Well, I think I will just continue with the RT. Maybe I will get the 64 GB just so I won't have to rely on an SD card for my default storage... That is where I am upset the most... The SD card is not encrypted. No telling what was on it... I just hope the new owner erases before using it...
Sad still... Mad even more! I just have to move on...
Looking for surface deals if anyone knows one.

Well, I'm about to get another surface rt. I looked at the dell latitude and xps, the Lenovo thinkpad2, and the surface pro and decided to still stick with the rt over an Intel processor.
I really don't see myself needing to install other apps... When I do, I will prob need a larger screen like my laptop. I can remote I to any of my computer/servers when needed. The only 2 changes I am considering is the 64GB over the 32GB and type keyboard over the touch.
I am over the loss I guess... Waiting for my insurance check so not a total loss.
Other news I found a suspect posting on Craigslist. may just be a posting for my surface. I contacted the seller with a junk email account not connected to my name or surface. Finger crosses for justice.

Got a 64GB Surface RT with touch cover for $596.50 shipped from So. CAL. Less than what I paid for my previous 32GB rt. I chose the 64GB because I don't want to worry about space... I didn't wotht jebotjer, but I saved docs to the SD card which is now stolen and unencrypted :|

Finally got my new surface rt! So happy to have it back too! I really missed, but I used my laptop more... Just not in the after hours in bed or on the couch browsing... That is where the surface beat the mobile warrior.
I opted for the 64 GB this time. No need for a micro SD, which I really did not have to use it on the other... I just did and now it is lost and someone else can flew its contents... Not even using on this time.
Thanks for the support friends.
