free smart phone

Smart Phones can be one of your best friends for finding directions, checking the weather, and browsing the internet for jobs, but if you don’t understand how to use them, they can be very challenging.  In this article, we’ll cover some of the things you will want to know when changing from a basic cell phone to a smart phone. 

Battery Power 

One big difference between a smart phone and a regular cell phone is the battery life.  In a smart phone, there are often a number of applications and programs running in the background that you can’t see, but their still using your battery power.  To keep these apps and programs from draining your smart phone battery, it is important to close the apps that you’re not using.  Most smart phones offer an easy way to close apps you’re not using, but each smart phone operates differently, so it is important to see how close apps on your specific smart phone.

Apps and Programs that use Data

There are certain many phones and programs that use a lot of data while in use.  When you download an app, watch your data usage carefully to make sure that specific apps aren’t using too much of your data.  After you review what apps are using a lot of data, you will know how much you should or should not use these apps.

Smart Phone Cases 

Using a smart phone case with your phone can extend the life of your phone for many years.  Since most people accidently drop their phone a few times during its life, why not try to protect it from a fall with a case?  You can often times find deals on older phone cases at discount stores such as TJ MAX or Marshalls.  

Using WIFI to Save on Data Usage

Public Libraries and Free Cell Phones Help Californians Save Money

Public Libraries are much more than free paperback and hardcover books these days.  They are a true community resource that have evolved over the years to help bring the community together and provide resources that can help all types of people.

Not too long ago, the public library was limited in its resources it provided the community as it generally only rented out books, magazines, and maps at no cost to the community.  Over time, public libraries have evolved to keep pace with its communities changing needs.  There are still thousands of books for people to check out and the topics cover anything from your favorite romance novel to a guide on how to remodel your bathroom.  To adjust to the busy lifestyle of people these days, public libraries also offer audio books for people on the go, such as when you are driving to and from work or on a family road trip. 

Libraries often provide a great place for many people to conduct work as they usually have desk and cubbies where you can stay focused.  This can be a great getaway for people searching for a job or people who work from home that just need to get out of the house.  It also beats the local coffee shop where you typically spend $5 each time you go and you usually have someone waiting for you to get up and leave.

In addition to these great offerings, public libraries often times have free Internet, free movie and DVD rentals, and they also have hundreds of events for children.

Another great way in which you can save money is through the Budget Mobile LifeLine program.  This is a government-assisted program that is designed for people have trouble applying for a cell phone or when they have a cell phone, paying the monthly bill.  Budget Mobile offers a free LifeLine phone that includes unlimited calls and text messages.

Free Cell Phones for People in California
