Do you feel like you know about all there is to know concerning cell phones? The vast majority of people do not. With all the cell phone tricks out there, knowing all of it is hard. This article will help you learn more about your phone. What you’ll find may surprise you!

If your phone falls into water, never make an assumption that it can’t be used any more. Take the battery out and put it into a bowl full of rice. This will remove some of the excess moisture inside.

TIP! If you drop a cell phone into a liquid, don’t assume that it’s ruined and throw it away. Take the battery out and place the cell phone in a plastic baggie filled with rice.

Try not to watch too much video on your cell phone. Most phone plans often come with a limited allowance for data each month. Video goes right through this and you might end up getting charged more. If you’re always going over your limit, it may be time to get yourself a better plan.

Remember that age will slow down a smartphone. Downloading software updates can keep them from becoming outdated. These updates are more powerful and larger. It’s possible that your old phone might not be able to handle them.

If you have a smartphone, you most likely use it quite often throughout the day. However, you should be sure you shut it off from time to time. Treat your cell phone like a computer. By restarting it, you free up memory and keep your device running smoothly. Simply turning your phone off a couple of times each week will improve how your phone works.

TIP! If you’re on LTE or 4G, beware watching videos. Your cellular phone plan usually comes with a finite amount of data every month.

Smartphones get slower as they age. Since it does begin to show its age, you may find that as time goes on, updating the phone with new technology and apps might become harder. A time will come when you will need to make a decision. You can stick with what you have and refuse updates, or you can upgrade the phone to the newest version.

Be sure that you actually need a smartphone before you buy one. While these phones require a hefty investment, a variety of features offsets the cost. The problem comes in when you really only need just a basic phone that you can make calls with. A smartphone will cost more upfront and have higher monthly fees. This might not be the best choice.

Find out what your friends think before you make the purchase. These are people that you can trust, and they will likely have experience with many different types of phones. They will be able to help you pick out a phone, making the shopping process easier.

TIP! Don’t always get the newest phone. It’s often not worth the money spent.

You might not know it all about cell phones, but there are great tips here. It’s your choice to get all you can from it. Increase your cell phone enjoyment by using what you learned here. Having a phone that you do not enjoy using is surely a bad feeling.
