Say “Goodbye” to Germs

A phone is a personal item, yet many studies have found that the average cell phone carries as much bacteria as a public doorknob. We thought it might be a good idea to show how you can disinfect your phone now that it’s time for some fall cleaning.

1. Turn off your phone and remove the protective case (if you use one).
2. Dip a cotton swab in diluted rubbing alcohol and gently rub it over your phone’s buttons and keypad. Be careful not to get any rubbing alcohol in the phone or under the keyboard.*
3. Dampen a cotton ball with rubbing alcohol and go over any other plastic parts.
4. Dip a cotton swab in water and wipe the camera lens with a swirling motion. Dry immediately.
5. Dampen a microfiber cloth with water and wipe down the front screen.
6. Give your phone a few minutes to dry and clean the phone case.
7. Snap the case back on and cross cleaning your phone off your fall cleaning list!

*Disclaimer: Do not get any rubbing alcohol or water under the keyboard or in the interior of the phone. Any moisture inside the phone may damage it permanently.

Protect Your Phone

Your phone can be as precious as your wallet or keys, and yet it’s more fragile and vulnerable than either. Here are our top 5 tips to protect you and your phone:

1. Password protect your phone.
Yes, it’s annoying to enter a password every time you use your phone but it could save you a lot of trouble if you ever lose it. A full alphanumeric password is the most secure, but pattern unlocks and pins work well too.

2. Don’t allow automatic connections.
Most phones will “remember” and try to connect to any Wi-Fi network they’ve accessed in the past. This convenience makes sense at home but could work against you in public. Disable automatic connections to prevent anyone from connecting to your phone without your knowing it.

3. Look for “https:” in the address.
When you’re making a purchase online always look at the web address to make sure it’s “https”. This indicates a higher level of security that’s been set up to transmit financial information privately.

4. Consider buying a “find your phone” app.
Most Android phones will let you locate and remotely wipe your phone through your Google account. Check to see if your phone is equipped with this service and if not, download an app that offers these features. You'll be glad you did if you ever lose your phone.

5. Consider getting a TracFone Easy Exchange plan.
TracFone offers two coverage options to protect your phone in the event that something goes wrong. Easy Exchange is an annual plan that covers electrical failure and mechanical failure. Easy Exchange Plus can be purchased monthly and covers electrical and mechanical failure, as well as accidental damage and liquid damage. Learn more at: http://bit.ly/1wlUQvH

How Much Data Do You Need?

With TracFone data cards you can amp up your data to get the web access you need. Data can be added in blocks of 300 MB, 750 MB, and 2 GB, but how do you know how much data is right for you?

Really, your data needs all depend on which functions of your phone you use most. For example, sending an email only uses about 75 kilobytes, while a streaming an hour of Pandora uses 29 MB.

Small data cards are perfect if you mainly want to surf the web or send email. With 300 MB you could look at 246 web pages or send around 4,096 emails. But a small data card becomes a problem if you want to stream anything.

On the high end, 2 GB is overkill if you’re only sending email (you could send 27,962 emails before running out of data) but it’s perfect for other services. With 2 GB you could use Google Maps for 57 hours or stream music for 70 hours.

TracFone data can be added at any time (as long as your service is active) and offers Carryover so you can use all the data you pay for. To shop for plans go to: bit.ly/Rwa4Mf
