There are quite a few things you may not know about a cell phone, and don’t think you’re alone when it comes to this. With the various options, it tends to be difficult to find the right phone for you, along with the best deals. It can also be difficult to figure out how to get more out of your current phone. The information that follows should help you get the process off the ground.

If you see a LTE or 4G signal, steer clear of videos. There is probably a cap on how much data you can use for the month. Videos can quickly use up your data allowance. If you go over, you may need a new plan.

TIP! Make sure that you restart your cell phones every once in a while so that you can get rid of the memory that is stored from programs like Twitter and Facebook. It makes your phone perform well when you do this a few times a week.

If you have a cellular telephone and need to get information, you shouldn’t pay for the charges that go with that sort of thing. You should try to dial 1-800-411-FREE. After a brief ad, you can receive the information you require.

As your SmartPhone ages, it will slow down. There are some updates that minimize this problem. These updates tend to get bigger and more powerful. In quick order you see the smartphones get outdated due to the newer technology.

Always be cautious about extended warranties. These just cost you more money. If a cellular phone is about to fail, it mostly happens on the year it is covered by its basic warranty. Plus, a lot of people buy a new phone ever year, so the warranty that’s extended really isn’t worth it.

TIP! If you phone gets wet, it isn’t necessarily beyond repair. Just take the battery out and put it into a bowl full of rice.

Your phone runs slower as it ages. With time, things like updating apps may become cumbersome. There are times where you will need to choose. You can be stubborn and refuse updates, or upgrade the phone to newer versions.

Prior to purchasing a smartphone, be sure it is what you need. They cost quite a bit, but they also offer many different features. The problem with this is that most people just use their phone to make basic phone calls. If this applies to your situation, remember that not only must you pay more up front for a smartphone, but you must also pay more each month for service. This is not a choice you may want to make.

Be careful with your cell phone when you are around water. Many people have ruined their phone by dropping it in water. So, to protect your phone, never place it near water. Though you may feel confident in hanging on to your phone, accidents can still occur.

TIP! Be careful if you watch videos while using LTE or 4G. Your cell phone’s plan may have an allowance for the data you’re using.

Your cell phone knowledge is likely not that good. This is nothing to be ashamed of. Technology changes constantly and it can be difficult to keep up with all of the trends. Ideally this article gave you some basic information to get you started in understanding cell phones.
