On the topic of cell phones, there are many things to learn. You must know all the options when the time comes to buy one and to use one. The tips below will guide you through all of the things you should know to get you started, so read on.

Don’t be in such a rush to get the latest phone. You may simply be wasting your money. Companies change what kinds of phones they have a lot, but they make minor updates sometimes. Make sure you read the phone reviews for the new model before you buy it to help you decide if the upgrade is really needed. A lot of the time this isn’t the case.

TIP! Restart your phone every now and then to clear its memory. This ensures it runs quickly and correctly.

If you decide to call information on your cell phone, you don’t have to pay exorbitant fees associated with that. Try dialing 1-800-411-FREE. You will listen to an ad, then ask for the information you want.

Be cautious with extended warranties. Usually, they aren’t worth the paper they’re printed on. If a cell phone is going to fail, it typically happens in the first year which is normally covered by the basic warranty. You also would likely upgrade a new phone before the extended warranty ends, so some of the bought time is just wasted.

Do your research before buying a new phone. Hold the phone in your hand, slip it in your pocket and test out the features. In this way, you stand a far better chance of buying a phone you actually love to use.

TIP! If your phone falls into water, never make an assumption that it can’t be used any more. Take the battery out and put your phone in a bag with rice.

Make sure that your smartphone is a necessity. Smartphones cost a lot of money, but they do a lot of things. The problem with this is that most people just use their phone to make basic phone calls. If you fit into this category and you purchase a smartphone, be aware that you monthly bill will probably be higher. A smartphone may not be a wise choice for you.

Don’t hesitate to give other brands a try even if you’ve always utilized a particular brand in the past. Though you might feel comfortable with a particular phone style, be open to change. Looking at other possibilities can open your eyes to great things.

Ask some trusted friends about cell phones before buying one. You can trust them, and their collection of experiences can help you immensely. They could help you in deciding the right phone for you, and it will make cell phone shopping easier for you.

TIP! Be careful when you’re watching a video using LTE or 4G signals. Most plans only allow you a certain amount of data transfer every month.

Now you know so much, you’ll master using your cell phones. A little education can help you maximize the benefits you get from your phone. While this article was a great way to start, keep reading to learn more.
