I don’t know about you, but I hate losing my photos. Especially if my phone is lost, stolen, or broken. Maybe your phone is limited on storage capacity, and continues to tell you that it no longer has any memory to store new photos. Some phones are limited to 16 GB internal Hard Drive Space, and cannot hold as much memory as other phones. Smart phones are strange when it comes to storage space. They only allow a specified amount of space for applications, photos, etc. Because of this, storage space can be a little deceiving, and down right frustrating. No longer do you have to decide between deleting those precious memories, or bathroom selfies, and having enough space to save your photos. Whether you have an iPhone, an android, a Blackberry, or a Windows phone, there are only two ways to back up your photos from your smartphone. The Old […]
I have a friend who switches phones every few months. An expensive habit to have. His biggest complaint about switching between Operating Systems? Losing his information and not knowing how to retrieve it after switching over to a new platform. There’s something each unique phone operating system brings to the user. Recently I convinced my friend to give the LG G4 a try after his iPhone 5C was stolen. His biggest concern was being able to transfer things like his music and contacts, which were synced to iTunes, and iCloud respectively. A lot of people share the same concerns when it comes to switching from an iPhone to an Android, or visa versa. Will I lose my contacts, my photos, or music? What about my apps? How will I get those back? Will all my information be saved? So many questions. Take a deep breath, and relax your mind. There […]
One of the best features to come with smart phones as of recently is the ability to pay using your phone. I can’t tell you how many times it’s saved me when I forgot my wallet. Last week, I was meeting a friend for happy hour at a local sushi restaurant. We had a great time catching up, and just shooting the breeze. When we finished with our meal, my heart sank. As I reached in my pocket, I had the sudden realization that I had forgotten my wallet! Luckily I have a mobile wallet, that not only works on any digital payment system, but also works on older credit card machines that are only capable of reading a magnetic strip from a credit card! I simply told my server I would have to walk up to the cash register and use my phone to pay the bill. The server looked […]
Smartphones are expensive! Most people do not have the money to continually purchase a new phone as soon as the newest version comes out. Maybe you want to keep this wonderful device, but are not satisfied with your cellular carrier, or you are simply moving to another country. Whatever the case may be, we all want the ability to take with us, the phone we spent all our hard earned money on, and use it with a different carrier. It’s not like an internet provider will make you buy a brand new computer, simply because you switched providers. So why do most phone companies lock their SIM to only be able to use their cellular service?
Most people don’t realize that Premium (Paid) Apps can be download and installed for free onto their smart phone. Yes it’s true folks, no matter what Operating System you use, there is a way to get these Premium Apps for FREE! There are a few ways to do this. Each phone operating system has a unique type of file (XAP, APK or IPA) that you can save the application as. This is similar to saving a picture file as a JPEG, PDF, or PNG file. It’s just a different form of saving the application to work for your particular operating system. A lot of you may have heard the term “root” or “jailbreak“. Depending on how you proceed to load the App file on your phone, you may need to go through one of these processes. If these words scare you, or you do not want to lose your Warranty on your […]
Have you ever received a message from someone stating that they lost all their contacts? I have seen it countless times. Whether it be a post on Facebook asking for their friends phone numbers, or a response to a text sent out asking, “who is this?”. A week ago a friend of mine did just that, responding to my text apologizing and asking who this was. We live in a world where the majority of the population no longer memorizes phone numbers. All our contacts are safely stored in our phones. What happens when our phone is stolen or lost?
