How to Use Less Data When Using Your 3 G Data Package?

In addition to text messaging and, maybe, make calls (Yes, still calling phones), all the fun things you can do on your smartphone require a data package. The cool things include e-mail, web browsing, download and run applications, access the social media and streaming of music and video. What is not fun, however, is having a huge bill at the end of the month to many GB of data or end your package quickly.

To ensure that you don’t go over your monthly franchise, watch these following tips and tricks.

Try to Avoid Activities That Consume A Large Amount of Data

Streaming video, downloadable applications, update of applications among others. Use when you are on a wireless network at home, a coffee shop, airport lounge or hotel lobby. To make sure you are using Wi-Fi, temporarily disable cellular data (under options or settings).

Don’t Forget to Close Properly Applications When You are Not Using Them

They may still be running in the background and thus possibly data used. This will also prolong the battery life. On the iPhone, double tap the Home button to see what is still open (at the bottom of the screen). On Android, press and hold the home button (at the bottom of the screen) and open the application manager, closing all open.

Try to Limit The Applications That Have Regularly Downloaded Content

Stock tickers, weather updates, live sports results or anything, since your smartphone will use data on an ongoing basis. Ditto for Siri on your iPhone: your voice-activated personal assistant is great, but can be a little Bloodsucker data.

Although Tempting, Avoid Creating A Personal Hotspot with Your Smartphone (Tethering)

You can have multiple devices to consume your data wirelessly. Likewise, do not attempt to tether your smartphone to your computer for use as a wireless modem. Avoiding it, you have more control of your data.

The Task Can Wait?

If you need to change any major email correspondence or extensive web browsing, ask yourself if you can wait until you get to a computer. Just because you can do it on a smartphone doesn’t mean you should, especially with low-quality 3 g internet in Brazil.

On a related note, turn off automatic downloading of emails if you don’t really need to know every time an email comes immediately. So, when in a WiFi hotspot, please feel free downalod of everything. In addition, enter the e-mail settings to choose “View only”, instead of downloading an attachment complete.

Try to Find Applications That Use Less Data

Do your research before you download and use. For example, the Apple Maps uses only a fifth data from Google Maps. Many sites will specify the quantities of data for you on a per-application basis.

Roaming Care!

When traveling to another country or State, make sure you are well aware of their roaming fees, since it will be significantly greater (plus). Some carriers offer various travel plans, so be sure to consider a to avoid an unpleasant surprise in your account. If in doubt, turn off data roaming on your smartphone section options/settings. If the trip is to the outside, the best option is to buy a chip in the country of destination, prepaid.

Instant Messaging

Instant messaging programs such as iMessage, Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp Messenger and BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) are affordable solutions for friends who want to stay in touch. They use little data, they are fast and reliable, and offer advantages over text messages (such as getting a confirmation when the message was delivered and read). In Brazil, there are operators who can offer free education to some of the data from these applications. Check your carrier’s customer service for more information.

Update the Operating System and Applications

Not updating applications on mobile connectivity when you can do it on your computer and then synchronize the updates to your smartphone via a USB cable or Bluetooth or when you can do in a Wi-Fi network. This will also save you on battery performance.
