Any physical or accidental damage to your Surface Pro 4 is classified as an out-of-warranty repair. In other words, to fix your damaged tablet, you’ll need to file an out-of-warranty service order.

If you’re not fond of receiving a refurbished replacement in lieu of a repair, you may want to consider purchasing Microsoft Complete. This additional warranty costs $149 and offers some much-needed protection. It will add two accidental repairs to your warranty as well as two full years of coverage from your tablet’s purchase date. Two things to consider with this option is that you’re still responsible for paying a deductible on your accidental damage repairs, and this coverage option is only available for 45 days after your tablet’s purchase date.
