Take advantage of your smart phone’s brilliance!
Having a mobile device gives us access to the the Internet beyond our desktops or typical laptop computers. While the initial responsibility for cellular devices were to simply make phone calls, as the demands and needs of human beings advanced, technology did so as well.
From accessibility needs to simpler dialing methods, mobile devices have progressed significantly in order to keep up with all of us. Being knowledgeable of all that your mobile device can do is important. Hands free calling and emailing can prove itself essential to the truck driver who is always on the road, or the student who is very aware of the dangers of texting and driving. These devices have something to offer everyone and knowing everything that they can accomplish gives us the key to all doors beyond the screen.
Smart phones are replacing, previously, very fundamental accessories. GPS systems and WiFi routers can now be combined into one 5 inch handheld. Gaining knowledge of these functions and options is as simple as exploring the device (which is the fun part!). So take advantage of all your smart phone’s intelligence and let it do its job!
Choose Reliable Service
One of the most annoying circumstances is being unable to use your mobile device wherever and whenever you need to do so. The swirling ball of death, the dropped calls, ‘Message Failed’ notifications; these are all signs of a service doing little to no serving at all.
When you realize that it is not the device giving you this trouble, and in fact your monthly service, you have a right to feel slightly jaded.
Choosing a reliable service provider can make or break the experience you have with your handheld device. While your device itself may be able to complete up to 10 tasks at once on command, your service may show itself a hindrance. Do your research and find out which providers are best in your area and whether they have plans that fit within any traveling schedules you may have.
Be Cautious of Your Data
Repeat after me: “May I have you Wifi password, please?”
Today, most monthly service providers offer data plans for internet access directly from your devices. This is a necessary evil in the handheld world. Because most of what we need access to requires the World Wide Web, customers may see their allowed monthly data vanishing fairly quickly if not used correctly. Utilizing wireless internet connectivity whenever possible, also know as Wifi, can definitely take less of a toll on your monthly data plan. Some companies are charging up to 15 dollars per .5 GB customers go over on their data! Using WiFi also increases location accuracy when searching for directions on your devices. Some customers may even find that they don’t need as much allowed data per month, and downsizing their data may cut their bill down quite a bit.
