Tip & How-To about Cell Phones
One thing that drives me nuts is having to ask for the WiFi P.W. at peoples house because my iPhone lost it or whatever the case. Then having to type it in, hoping you got it right, as its a zillion characters long..DRAMA!!
Use one of the Top Free email providers ie: Google, Yahoo, Hotmail.
I use Gmail as a Microsoft exchange account in my iPhone and enable notes. Yahoo is by far the easiest to setup as it requires no special setup to enable notes, the choice is yours, I prefer Gmail.
That being said, make a new Note in your iPhone, iPad...(ex)-WiFi PWs
Now if something happens to your iPhone, you had to restore it or whtevr ALL your WiFi PWs will ALWAYS be in your notes as soon as you add your email account on your iDevice and turn on notes. then all you have to do is copy and paste the WiFi PWs when you need them, no more trying to type in some super long generated code that your not sure is right anyway because you cannot see the characters being typed.
I visit a lot of friends throughout each month, most all have WiFi and I like to use it whenever I can with my iPhones, iPad..ect.. For faster web (obvious) but also battery life is always greatly improved as the (cell)phone has less work to do with WiFi handling most all data.
Hope it helps!
SIDE NOTE!! This is also a great way to backup your contacts online (Gmail as Microsoft exchange) and never have to worry about losing an important name/number/email address ever again!
