Purchasing a cell phone is something that just about everyone needs to do from time to time. But, many people out there aren’t able to make the right choice about things. The following tips will help you with everything from picking out a phone to using it appropriately.

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. Performing this function is the best way to ensure that the phone is working at optimum levels at all times.

TIP! Remember to restart your cellphone every now and then to remove memory stored from programs such as Twitter and Facebook. This can help your phone to perform better if you do it regularly.

Your cell phone may or may not be destroyed by a plunge into liquid. Take the battery out and put it into a bowl full of rice. Doing so soaks up excess moisture that may have seeped into your smartphone.

Don’t rush out and buy the newest phone. It’s not always worth it. The updates may only be small. Make sure you read up on the phone prior to buying it to determine if it is something you want. A lot of the time this isn’t the case.

Smartphones become slower the older they get. Updating software can help to keep the phone from being obsolete. As the newer technology rolls out, it comes with updates that are much more powerful. In a couple years, the upgrades might not work on the older phones.

TIP! If you decide to call information on your cell phone, you don’t have to pay exorbitant fees associated with that. Try for instance the 1-800 number, 411-FREE.

If you have a smart phone, you likely use it constantly. Turn it off from time to time when you can. Any smartphone is like a small computer. It will run better when it is restarted and the memory is clear. You should notice that there’s a big difference when you use your cell phone after you turn it off a couple of times each week.

Is your battery life too short? Maybe your signal is weak. The fact is that poor signals can cause a battery to die sooner. Just turn your phone off if you’re not using it.

Extended Warranty

TIP! Smartphone owners tend to be tied to their phones. You should not leave it on for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Stay very wary of extended warranty offers. Extended warranties generally are not worth purchasing. You will notice most problems within the first year generally, and the original warranty covers any of those issues. There’s also a good chance you will switch to a new phone by the time your extended warranty would be of any use.

Smartphones will slow down over time. 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. There are times where you will need to choose. You can be stubborn and refuse updates, or upgrade the phone to newer versions.

Cell phones are everywhere you look. But, it is still important to learn everything possible before buying. It is hoped that you have gained some insight that has prepared you to get more from your phone than just a call.
