Can anyone explain the functions of the buttons on the stylus?
I can't find any documentation.
Has anyone else tried the old Rev00 stylus with the new Bios release on Mar 5th?
While I am waiting for a replacement I thought I would give the old one a try and it worked pretty good.
Anyone try it yet??
Any hover clicks or multi taps?
Yea...once I got through to the right group they were quite pleasant and efficient.
This includes calling me twice at home regarding the new stylus and a follow up call from a manager just to see...
Got the call yesterday as well.
I was a bit pissed when I called in the second time and they said they weren't in stock (web showed 1-2 weeks) and that I would have to keep calling back.

Loving the tablet so far!
Great piece of engineering.
Haven't been using my Surface 2 as much and liking the flexibility of the full Windows 8 experience as opposed to RT.
Can't wait for the...
Just tried my Intuos with my Surface 2 and although it installed the drivers for mouse and tablet it did not work.
I rebooted and it still didn't work - not even as a mouse.
It would be helpful to know if you have an A00 or an A01 pen.
Did you apply the "urgent" driver update from Jan 2014?
Lucky for you. they are showing out of stock online currently.
Nah....A00 is a piece of junk.
Dell Canada will send me a replacement when in stock.
There ate no new drivers on the Dell site.
Could you be more specific?
You aren't nerdy at all.......
It's known as Patch Tuesday.
Is it just me or does the Venue 8 seem a bit snappier after yesterdays patchs??
Thanks for the responses guys!
Looks like I was confused with my Surface 2.
Not crazy after all : )
I might be loosing my mind but does this not have Outlook along with Office???
Maybe I am getting mixed up with my Surface 2....or just crazy.
I can't find it on Search or in the Apps.
Is this the crappy rev00 or the new one??
I take back what I said last week. The hover clicks on this thing are awful and make it unuseable.
I had mine disappear on me one day and thought I was losing my mind.
A reboot made it reappear again.
Quite odd so if you don't see the settings as above reboot and look again.
My stylus ordered over a month ago arrived today and it is indeed the old Rev 00.
I tried it right away and it was aweful. I then reluctantly installed the "Urgent" firmware update which gave me...
Basically any "cheap" mouse will work.
The Dell bluetooth travel mouse is great and cheap if caught on sale.
Well I am hoping as they should have totally pulled the old ones otherwise there shouldn't have been the long delay.
I don't know how to tell the old from the new right now obviously.
Wasn't trying to be condescending. Honestly I don't see the point of all those features in that android player.
Anyway...news is out now and it should eventually kick ***
VLC for Windows 8 to be...
Thanks for posting the info.
I haven't had any issues but I have been very careful when plugging it in.
I have use the supplied charger but also my cable that came with my Lumia 1020.
Ordered the stylus at Christmas from Dell.ca when it was on sale.
Just got a shipping notification today. Previously it wasn't supposed to ship until an estimated Feb 17th.
Hopefully the *new*...
Incipio case is the bomb!
Use VLC...you're not on RT anymore Toto!
If you have the Jan 2 touchscreen update do you have the black screen issue?
Do a restart and login in portrait mode.
The screen typically will go black.
Just wanted to know.

I narrowed it down to the Dell touchpanel firmware update from Jan 2.
I reset and haven't installed it since and no issues.
Waiting for a newer update.
I think the fact that no one has been talking about it is a good thing.
Usually short battery life is the source of endless ********.
Just power up the Dell.
Upon setup you will have the option to use the rt as a basis or setup as a new one.
I always select new.
You will also have the option to setup the tiles the same but I...
- 01-11-2014, 12:28 AM
I thought in the past it was just only in the first few uses.
You can always shut off auto brightness.
I wouldn't necessarily take it with a grain of salt. There are numerous posts on the black screen issue and it took me 4 total reinstalls to narrow that down to the touchscreen update.
If you don't...
Is that using the stylus?
Mine is on order but these other "installed" issues were maddening.
I don't have any double tap issues with using my fingers.

Loved this thing out of the box and worked perfectly.
Stupid me for updating the drivers from Dell's webpage via My Dell.
New 04 bios immediately gave me lost WiFi connections and the worst was...
In the email settings I have it set to receive notifications.
Happens properly when using the tablet but not in standby.
Just picked up a dvp8 at Costco.
I have a Surface 2 and I get email notification sounds when it is in Standby (ie. screen is off and email sounds still occur).
This hasn't been occurring on the...
Not happening on mine but had other build issues.
Just keep returning until you get one you are happy with.
Advanced exchange provides no loss of use.
I do miss that from Dolphin browser on Android for sure.
Haven't found a way yet either.

Surface car charger??
Buy Microsoft Surface Car Charger with USB port - Microsoft Store
There are invertors for the car that can run just the wall charger as well.
- 12-18-2013, 01:31 PM
Honestly if I was without power for up to 9 days I would have quite a few other priorites for power or charging than my Surface.
As the charger is proprietary you would have to plug the Surface with...
- 12-14-2013, 09:53 AM
With my charger there is an audible buzz for a few seconds when I first attach it to the Surface.
Hasn't bugged me enough to replace it yet.
I will check to see if it does what your video...
- 12-10-2013, 03:45 PM
Check something for me.
Go to the recycle Bin on the desktop and right click for properties.
Let me know if "Display delete confirmation dialog" is checked or not.
Just fired up Excel after update to test and no issues here.
Maybe reinstall the update.
I use Witopia and it works fine.
Sometimes disconnects when idle but I still have data.
Call their support. WiTopia is awesome for support.

My Surface connects to my NAS no problem.
I have also heard of issues with SD cards getting stuck on this board.
I would return the unit... once you get your card out.
Same issue with flex in that corner.
I am trying not to let it bug me.
- 11-14-2013, 11:01 PM
Original touch cover or touch 2??

Owned both and the Surface 2 is way faster.
Loose volume rocker and excessive backlight bleed are the two things I would check for.
Backlight bleed at boot up in a low light room. Loose rocker...
- 11-09-2013, 07:43 AM
Why would someone steal them? Unless you don't have it password protected it wouldnbe totally useless.
Thanks for the reply (Thanked)...that was driving me nuts!!!!
OK this has happened on the Surface 2 I returned and on the replacement.
Sometimes I turn it on and all that is on the screen is the reaf facing camera.
There is an "Unlock" icon in the lower...
My charger makes an audible whine for the first few seconds after I connect it to the Surface. Goes away unless I disconnect and reconnect.
Also tonight I noticed it was quite hot to the touch...
Dude..that is what I told you a few replies ago.
In your email account settings there is a notification that isn't on by default.
I don't do Facebook so I don't know if it what you are looking for but that is all there is.
I fianlly received my Advanced Exchange unit today and there is no play in the volume rocker so I am quite pleased.
I can post a video of the comparison later.
I would encourage anyone who has...
Very useful. Thanks for "sharing".
It is expensive but worth the money IMHO.
Well it was either that or insame.
I can't say I didn't send myself an email to make sure first lol.
Yes it does have a sound notification.
You may have to go into Settings>Account>Show Email Notifications
Not sure if that is required for sound but I do have sound and that turned on.
I am in Canada and purchased through the MS Store online. I think they are all shippied out of the US
When I had my RT I had heard of people posting about it and when I got tired of my first backlight bleed issue after a few months the option wasn't available and I complained vehemently about being...
I used the Advanced Exchange Program where they ship you a new one and when you get it you ship the defective one back.
They charge your CC but refund it when they get the defective one back.
- 10-28-2013, 08:22 PM
That happened to me on my RT.
I didn't consider it a good thing.
It was an OS brain fart that was a P:I:T.A to fix.
I can return as many defective ones they want to keep shipping me.
Still waiting for ANY kind shipping notification from last weeks exchange application.
Best tip I heard was to take an exacto knife and hack an angle into the plastic of the micro hdmi cable to match the angle on the Surface.
My Rogers 1020 does the same thing. I noticed after I put my screen protection on.
Trying to let it not bother me.
Clicks lightly sometimes but mainly just flexes.
- 10-25-2013, 07:09 PM
That was my original RT which I have already sold.
Best strategy for that time I think was to wait a few months while they get the kinks out.
The backlight bleed was only noticeable in black...
Wondering if his volume rocker rattles......
Very loose volume rocker and mild backlight bleed.
Bottom line is they will keep getting them back until I get one that I paid for.

- 10-25-2013, 09:11 AM
I take a diferent line.
For this price I expect near perfect.
Three returns on my RT finally got the one I think I deserved for the price including no backlight bleed at all.
If you allow them...
- 10-24-2013, 10:17 PM
Post on Twitter. I did. MS and people need to know.
I am sick of it too.
I would appreciate it if someone could confirm that theirs does not do that or is not that loose.
It make a noise even with my hand casually moving the tablet while holding it near the rocker.
Here is a quick video from my 1020 of the issue:
I made an advanced replacement request this morning
- 10-24-2013, 10:59 AM
That is freaking hideous and wayyyy worse than what I ever had.
Send it back!
Kicker for me was going into Best Buy and seeing a perfect one on display. I knew it was...
- 10-24-2013, 09:25 AM
I had this on my first RT and returned it and got another that was just as bad.
Third time was the charm.
For this price I will keep returning them until I get one I think is up to the quality I...
In which thread?
I am so tired of this crap ....seriously!
I just noticed that the volume rocker has quite a bit of excess play.
Even makes a audible noise when the tablet is shaken and seems bothersome when handling the tablet.
Just did a manual check and there is a firmware update available.
This was after I already installed updates after first boot.
Maybe this will solve some of the speaker issues people have been...

I am sure I recall swiping up to access all apps.
Now when I swipe up all I get is "Customize" and can just add name to groups and move tiles.
I can't get to all apps until I scroll all the way...
I was on my fourth after mainly backlight bleeding.
They are good about returns. Exchange it!
Oh gawd noooooooooo....
Why can't they get this correct right out of the gate????
I was supposed to get my Surface 2 today but then got a "wrong address" showing in the tracking on UPS.
I confirmed the right address on the Microsoft store and with UPS customer service.
There was always a timer but with one time option only.
The new update allows for more.

It was somewhat better with telecoil on.

For an Apple biased site it actually wasn't a bad review at all.

Put me in the same boat as those of you with the distorted hissing problem.

Are you in Calgary? If so how did you get the phone. ..
Even if in Alberta for that matter.
- 07-09-2013, 11:18 PM
That is why it is rated as ***.
I still get that same error as well after months I was a sucker to install it again and try.
I had heard quite a bit about Songa so I thought I would give it a whirl on my Surface before my laptop.
It only plays one song and that is it. On my laptop it does play continuously.
I can't see the 520 being any different than my 920 but let me know.
If my phone is locked and a call comes in I am prompted to slide up and just hit answer. How is that tortuous??
- 06-30-2013, 05:10 PM
You can't run the Citrix client as non Windows store apps can't be installed. There is a Citrix app in the store but it is ***. The rating and reviews are a good clue.
T-Mobile is GSM and they are the 520 RM-917 variant (521???)
Telus is the RM-915 and seems to be missing some bands.
I basically want the world phone version or GSM version of the 520 for use in...
