Recently, I need to add a user account to Windows RT (Surface 2). I got an error of
Sorry, we couldn't connect to Microsoft services right now. If this problem persists, search for "network problems" on the Start screen.
On the other hand, it lets me create a new Microsoft account (outlook.com / hotmail.com) and then I can sign in using that account.
I try to get around it by creating a local account and try converting the local account to Microsoft account but I am getting the same "Sorry, we couldn't connect to Microsoft services right now" error.
At this point, I am stuck. I have not found any news about Microsoft sign-in service being offline. Any ideas how I can fix that?
