Smartphone Adaptation

Smart phones can help you better manage all your everyday tasks. These convenient, pocket-sized handheld devices are becoming increasingly popular with people of all ages and from all walks of life. You can use your smart phone to make a call, maintain your calendar or schedule, create music playlists, check your email, take pictures or videos with its camera and get directions all with one convenient, pocket-sized handheld device that is portable enough to carry everywhere.

Smartphone technology has become an integral part of our world and has revolutionized communication. Multiple applications can allow you to access your favorite games and social networking sites on the go, or you can connect with the Internet while shopping to compare prices, features or accessories or even locate another brick-and-mortar store with a better selection. Adapting to your new phone can be a complicated affair, but you can take a few easy steps to simplify the process.

1. Battery Power

Condition the battery by charging it fully and letting it die out completely. This ultimately extends the life of the battery. Keep it in good condition by repeating the process once a month.

2. Data

Simply syncing your data will often be enough to migrate your contacts and other critical information if you are moving from one smart phone to another. Using a cloud to sync your information is the best option. iTunes, the BlackBerry Desktop Manager are options. If you are upgrading from a regular cell phone, you may find it easier to transfer the information via the SIM card or asking your phone carrier to complete the process for you.

3. Apps

Apps give you the opportunity to fully customize the look and feel of your phone.

Although your new mobile device can be fun and convenient, virtual communication cannot replace the value of face-to-face interactions. Stay connected with friends and family in real life as well as online by using your phone as a way to facilitate real-life communication rather than replace it.
