Tips on Mobile Maintenance

1. Charged: Ensure your battery is fully charged, and then completely run it down before recharging. Recharging too early causes your battery to run out of power more quickly.
2. Secure: Beat the phone thieves by ensuring you use a PIN. If your phone is stolen or lost, call your carrier and get your phone blocked across all networks by using the IEMI blocking service.
3. Protected: Make sure you use a keypad lock to lock your phone. Unplanned calls can cost a fortune and even though your phone may be in a safe place, such as in a suit pocket or a handbag, your phone will still get knocked around to a surprising degree.
4. Well looked after: It may sound obvious, but rough treatment can damage electronic circuit boards. Don't drop or shake your phone.
5. Dry: Store your phone in a dry place. Avoid Rain, humid air and liquids. All of these contain minerals that corrode electronic circuits.
6. Clean: Don't use harsh detergents to clean your phone. Wipe it with a soft cloth dampened in a mild soap-and-water solution.
7. Covered: a protective cover will help repel dust and dirt, and prevent scratches.
8. At the right temperature: High temperatures can shorten your phone's life, damage batteries and warp or melt plastic. If your phone is left in extremely cold temperatures, as it warms up, moisture can form which can damage the circuit boards. Make sure your phone is kept in a temperature that is comfortable to ensure a long life.
