TracFone Tips: Phone Photos

Everyone knows that a picture is worth a thousand words, and with the camera-phone options from TracFone, like the Samsung Galaxy Stardust, you’ll have a lot to say. From snapping selfies to capturing landscapes, mastering the art of phone-ography can take some practice. That’s why we've compiled some useful tips to help you get more out of your mobile photos.

Cleanliness is Key
Picture this: you’re just finishing up a fantastic day at the beach—the waves are calm, the sand is warm, and the sun is setting, painting the sky with a gorgeous blend of orange and violet hues. You reach into your pocket to grab your phone so you can capture this unbelievably serene moment.


Wait, what’s this? Did a swarm of mosquitoes fly by as you took the photo? Did a cloud of smog just blow through? What gives? Well, it turns out you just forgot to wipe down the lens and a lovely fingerprint just smudged your sunset.

That’s why our first tip is to make sure your device’s lens is clean and streak free.  Just give it a quick wipe with a small towel or even the edge of your t-shirt. Trust us, this will help you avoid any future photograph upsets, so you can flawlessly capture those beautiful beachside sunsets.

Wipe your lens for flawless photos

If at First You Don’t Succeed…
So your first attempt to capture the spectacular sunset wasn't so hot. So what… smears happen. And so does blinking… and shaking… and blurring… and poor lighting. There’s a whole range of issues that can happen when trying to snap the perfect picture. But don’t worry, your TracFone Android™ device comes with enough internal memory  that you can keep the photographs flowing until you snap your perfect picture. And remember, practice makes perfect, so the more pictures you take, the quicker you’ll become a master phone-ographer!

Share Your Photos and Get Feedback
Remember the days when people carried photos of their family in their wallet? Well, lucky for our tushes, our wallets are much thinner as those days are coming to a close. Nowadays, you can store considerably more photos, which means you can share considerably more photos from your TracFone Android ™ smartphone.

Whether sharing in person, via text or uploading online, having friends and family take a look at your photos can provide you with the feedback you’ll need to take your phone-ography to the next level. Pretty soon, you’ll become a professional and have a gallery featuring your finest work!

Do Everything For Less: Spring Cleaning

Spring has finally sprung! The flowers are starting to bloom, birds are chirping their beautiful melodies and the house needs a good scrub-down. Oh spring cleaning. Nobody likes doing it, but it’s just something that needs to get done. Luckily, we’ve compiled a quick list to ease the pain and help you do spring cleaning for less!

Call in for Back-up
Family and friends make everything better, including spring cleaning! So before you put on a pair of yellow-latex gloves, send out a text message to your family and friends and see if they’ll swing by to lend a helping hand. The more support you get, the less time it will take to scrub down the house. Just don’t be surprised when they ask you to return the favor.

Make a Spring Cleaning Playlist
Once you’ve got your cleaning team in place, set up a 'Spring Cleaning Playlist' full of your favorite, groove-able tunes. You can blast the mp3s on your TracFone Android™ Smartphone and keep team morale high until the job gets done. Plus, with the music going, it will look a little less weird when you are dancing with the vacuum.

Use Old T-Shirts as Cleaning Rags
Spring cleaning is often a big undertaking that requires a lot of wiping, mopping and scrubbing. But instead of buying fancy dish towels that are just going to get ruined doing the job, simply cut up some old t-shirts and wipe-away. Let’s face it, that tuxedo t-shirt needed to be tossed anyway, so you might as well get some use out of it and save money in the process.

Use an Old Toothbrush
Dentists recommend changing your toothbrush every three months, we recommend holding on to them so you can easily clean those hard to reach nooks and crannies. As the old saying goes, “if it’s good enough to clean your mouth, it’s good enough to clean your house.” Old toothbrushes are great for scrubbing out the grime from in between bathroom tiles and from behind the kitchen sink. You’ll feel relieved after you finally remove that hard-to-reach filth, and, since you’ll save some money by not having to buy new cleaning supplies, your toothbrush just found a new way to keep that bright smile going!

Take Before-and-After Pictures
Although it’s a pain to scrub down and organize the entire house, nothing beats the feeling of having a clean, comfortable home. The best way to document your progress is to snap some quick before-and-after photos on your TracFone Android Smartphone. You’ll be able to see the fruits of your hard work and you can upload the photos to your social networks and show off the results to your family and friends. Hey, they might even ask you to swing by their houses to help them tidy up!

Do Everything For Less: Grocery Shopping

From schlepping to and from the supermarket to making sure you’re pleasing everyone in the family, grocery shopping can sometimes be a total pain. So to make this task more enjoyable and help you #DoEverythingForLess, we’ve gathered a few tips and tricks that will guarantee you get more out of your grocery shopping experience.

Gather Ideas:
You can’t get your family what they want if you don’t even know what they’re hungry for. So a day or two before you head out to the supermarket, send your family a quick text message and ask if they have any requests. They can easily send back their preferences, and you can easily ensure a happy household.

Make a List:
One of the most important things to help make your grocery shopping experience more enjoyable is to make a grocery list. Having one will help you get in and out of the store more quickly because you won’t be wasting time looking for items you don’t need. And best of all, sticking to a grocery list will help you save because you won’t be wasting money buying items you don’t need!

With your TracFone Android Smartphone, you’ll never be left without a grocery list again! Simply add a shopping list in a notebook app, save it, and you’ll have it ready in your purse or pocket every time you visit the supermarket!

Use a Coupon App
Looking to save even more when you grab your groceries? Then download and use a coupon app on your TracFone Android smartphone device. There are many FREE coupon apps available on Google Play, which will help you save everytime you shop. You can thank us later!

Load Up
With the money you’ll be saving on your wireless bill with TracFone, you’ll be able to load up and get an extra bag or two of groceries every time you’re at the store. With all this delicious food, you’ll be sure to have a happy household. Just make sure everyone is home to help you unload and put the food away!

4 Ways to Save This Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is about celebrating true love, and although some say, “love don’t cost a thing,” this holiday has a knack for burning a hole in our wallets. So in order to keep your heart—and wallet—full of love this February 14th, here are a few tried and true ways to save on Valentine’s Day:

Cook Instead of Going Out to Dinner
Enjoy a romantic meal with your special someone in the comfort of your own home. You can wow your significant other with a new, gourmet recipe, or you can cook the meal together for extra flirtatious fun. Just remember to add your favorite music and a couple of candles to set the Valentine’s Day mood. Best of all, there’s no need to tip the wait staff – unless you want to tip yourself!

Stream a Movie Rather Than Go to the Theater
A great date always has great entertainment! But instead of paying an arm and a leg to see the latest boy-meets-girl flick with all of the other Valentine’s Day daters, how about cozying-up on the couch and streaming the movies you love with the person you love! Make some popcorn, dim the lights, kick back & enjoy the show!

Send "Sweet Nothing" Texts Throughout the Day
Unfortunately, you can't always spend the entire day with the one you love on Valentine's Day. But just because you aren't with your significant other, doesn't mean they aren't on your mind. Show appreciation for your sweetheart by sending them thoughtful texts throughout the day, reminding them how much you love and care for them. As they say, "distance makes the heart grow fonder," and your valentine will be pleased to know that even distance can't keep your love apart.

Make Your Own Greeting Card Instead of Buying One
Roses are Red
Violets are Blue
Greeting Cards are cliché
It’s better to write something that’s heartfelt and true.

This Valentine’s Day ditch the cliché greeting cards and instead write your loved one a note that comes from the heart. To add extra sentimentality, write it on the back of a favorite picture of the two of you. They will definitely appreciate hearing how much they mean to you, and it will be a gift they will cherish for years to come.

Cupid may be the ultimate wing-man, but with Valentine’s Day savings tips like these, TracFone comes in a close second. With our 90-day no contract plan for only $19.99 and great smartphones at great prices, we help you Do Everything For Less, including Valentine’s Day!
