Keep Your Phone Working and Your Connection Warm in the Cold Outdoors: Tips From Verizon Wireless

4

Verizon Wireless, the leading mobile provider in the United States is sharing some tips to all mobile phone users for the cold weather months.

PRN has given us a little blurb about how to keep our precious phones safe when Old Man Winter rears his head.

First, the basics:

  • Keep your phone fully charged, the cold weather is a battery drainer.  Use a car charger if all possible.  (Or keep a spare battery around.)
  • Be careful with your touch-screen phone.  When it gets exposed to extreme temperatures, it can become brittle
  • Keep your phone warm, and close to your body.  When your phone gets to cuddle with you, and use your body heat, s/he is happy.
  • (This one, I really like, and never thought of) Get gloves with removable fingers so you can use your touch screen, but keep your hands warm.

Pretty cool stuff, eh?  Also, there are a few recommended apps that you can use to be prepared for the Winter Weather.

  • Winter Weather Outlook – Allows you access to the National Weather Service Winter Weather Outlooks, so you’ll know what kind of winter weather is headed your way.
  • How Cold Is It? – A wallpaper that changes color depending on the outside temperature – deep red when it’s hot and icy white when it’s freezing. (Note, that this is a live wallpaper, so make sure your phone is compatible before downloading.)

  • ShoppeHUB – This app allows you to make secure purchases on cold weather gear, including winter clothing.
