After writing a review about a new smartphone a few questions that cropped up got me thinking! Here are a few hints to reduce your data usage.1) Use a widget that can easily turn your data connection and wifi on and off.
2) Run a “task killer” to regularly shut-down any rogue programs from running.
3) Always check your programs settings to see if they automatically update themselves, if they do increase the length between updates.
4) Keep an eye on any “cloud” synchronisation (sometimes once a week is enough)These tricks will also help prolong the battery life of your mobile 🙂
