A lot of people do not think about saving their mobile data and only when they get the messages from the operators to inform them that the monthly mobile data packet is ending is they start trying to manage them in the best way.
But in an age where we have always connected Internet, even during holidays, it is imperative to know how to save the mobile data to last the entire month. Here are our 6 Tips to save mobile data.
Choose to connect in areas with Wi-Fi
Even if you go on vacation to a city or country you do not know, the good news is that you will always have zones with access to free Wi-Fi. To enjoy the Wi-Fi of the hotel or restaurant where you are making a meal, for example, just connect to it with the code that is given to you and then navigates for as long as you want without any associated cost.
Also, there are also some times that already have their own Wi-Fi, just like the air
port so you can wait for your entertained flight.
Turn off push notifications
Every time your phone receives notifications it means that it basically used mobile data to update applications in search of new information: it happens mainly with news, emails and social networks. However, many times when the mobile phone does this research there is not any novelty to present and therefore spent mobile data unnecessarily.
If you turn off this sync, you’ll just have to go check out that particular app you want to know about a plus, if you’re on vacation avoid getting bombarded with emails on the beach or at the pool.
Manage your usage
Through your application or official website, your operator provides information regarding invoices, data cap, minutes and free SMS that you still have available, among other details regarding your tariff.
You will thus manage your usage and turn off the mobile data when you do not need them so that you will always have an idea of how to use them and what you can still do during the month whether you divulge your holidays or just to keep in touch with your loved ones.
Turn off automatic image download
Typically, in messaging applications or even Gmail, downloading of images and videos received is automatic and immediate, unless you change this default setting in the application itself. At vacation times it is more common to share images with friends about what you are doing and the places you visit, which will consume you a lot of data if you download it immediately.
So you can choose which media files you want to download at the moment or simply download them when you have Wi-Fi available.
If you use Google Maps, download the maps previously with Wi-Fi
Maps can spend a lot of Internets, especially if you do a lot of research, such as when you are in a zone that you do not know and need directions.
Since Google Maps does not need to have an internet connection to take advantage of its features, choose to download the maps when you have Wi-Fi access: once you open the application, select “Offline Maps” and choose the area you want a record, so you can access whenever you want without an Internet connection.
Opts for calls or SMS
As tempting as it is to send a photo directly from the beach, whenever you’re on the street, and you’re not connected to Wi-Fi, you choose to make a voice call over the phone or to send SMS, instead of using messaging applications or video calls that would require the use of mobile data.
