How to Get the Most Out of Your Phone and All of Its Features

It would be safe to say that the majority of adults and teenagers in America have a cell phone. In fact, I could argue that the majority of adults and teenagers in the modern world have a cell phone. I can remember when they were such a rare commodity. In fact, before I even had a cell phone, I had a pager. In comparison to today’s cell phones, a pager seems like an ancient and unnecessary tool. Most teenagers today probably could not even tell you how one of them works. On the flip side, there are many people who now own a cell phone but may not know exactly how it works. People of all ages struggle with using a cell phone for the first time because they are not clued in about all the cool features their phone has. If you are trying to figure out how to use your T Mobile phone, or another device, here are some great features that you can test out on almost any phone.

Make as Many Calls as You Want

Unless you have a prepaid cell phone, you will be happy to know that most plans allow you to make as many phone calls as you want. There are no longer a number of minutes that you are allocated, and it does not take away from whatever amount of data you have allotted in your plan. The only thing you should be concerned about, or at least careful of, is international calls. Often times there are significant fees for calling outside of the country you have your plan in.

Text Messaging Works Just as Well

If you are new to the cell phone seen, you might not be comfortable with texting. However, it is important to know that most people prefer using this method of talking over actually speaking on the telephone. It is hard to pin point exactly why, but it can be helpful if you are in a situation where you cannot talk out loud because there are people around, but it would still be appropriate to use your cell phone.

Email Can Be Linked to Your Phone

As long as you have a data plan, you are usually able to download an application that will allow you to receive and read your emails on your phone, just like your computer, depending on what type of provider you have for email. One of the most common ones is Gmail. In fact, many phones have a partnership with google that requires you to create Gmail address in order to set up your phone.

Your Phone Can Be a Calculator, Alarm Clock, and More

No matter what type of phone you have, it almost definitely came with a calendar, calculator, and alarm clock application installed. You can easily use your phone for all of these things and more. Other useful applications you should download include the flashlight and the notepad feature. These are probably some of the most commonly used applications on a cell phone.
