Tip & How-To about Cell Phones

Mobile Phone Tips & Tricks: Tips to maintain mobile phones.

Taking care of your cell phone will help to ensure it a long and productive life. These are some of the tips to help you maintain and get the best out of your mobile phone. All these tips also expect you to maintain the battery, charger and other accessories.

1. Protect your handset with a screen guard and if possible with a plastic or a leather cover.

2. You can charge your battery anytime as against myths that you should first get it fully drained. This was when Nickel-Cadmium and Nickel-Metal Hydrate batteries were used. Only ensure that you use an original and genuine battery and charger or a compatible one. Be extra cautious with all the accessories whether they are genuine or not as an incompatible one can damage your phone permanently.

3. Always enable the PIN number on your SIM Card and phone lock i.e security code on your phone to prevent unauthorized use.

4. Always handle your cell phone with care. Rough treatment may damage the circuit board inside, so avoid dropping or unnecessarily shaking your phone.

5. To clean your cell phone just wipe it with a soft cloth. If need arises, you can use a mild detergent to clean the caver. But see to it that the detergent does not get into the phone through the holes.

6. Always keep your phone in a cool, dry place and avoid high temperature areas. Be extra cautious to protect you phone during rain.

7. Also keep your phone out of reach of your children. Your data may be more important than your handset.

Does my LG phone battery eventually have to be replaced?


hi, all phone batteries need replacing eventually usually after about 12months or so, the best way to ensure you battery lasts long is to let it go totally flat so that the phone wont even light up if you do this once a month and then do a full recharge this will ensure you battery is kept at its best and doing this prevents bad cells forming and prolongs the life of the battery.

if your having battery problems then get it replaced if its fine just remember to let it go totally flat once a month and this will then prolong the life of the battery and you should not need to buy one for couple of years.

i hope i have given you the info you was looking for

Phone dies after only texting maybe three or four times even though it was just taken off the charger.


How old is the phone? These kinds of batteries need to be handled with care. Meaning, for the battery life to be high, you must fully charge phone, then use the phone till the battery is dead, then fully charge again. Do not charge if there is still juice in the battery and do not take off charger after only partially charging the phone. This will help maintain the life of the battery.
