Knowing how to cut cell phone charges may help you to get a better value for your dollar when it comes to the amount of money you spend to keep your phone working. Many people make the mistake of paying too much for their phones simply because they do not know how many minutes they are using during the month. Instead of paying for an excessive amount of minutes, look through six of your most recent bills. When you have an average number of minutes, this would provide you with an idea of what you require on a monthly basis. When you approach your plan this way, it is possible to cut costs by getting onto a plan that is designed to provide you with exactly what you need. Additionally, you may want to consider doing away with additional services that you do not use on a regular basis. Having the internet may seem like a great idea, but it may be wasteful if you do not use it. Getting rid of text messaging will also allow you to save some money.

If you learn how cut cell phone charges, you would be able to get more out of your cell phone company. Calling to ask for a discount through your employer would be another important step toward getting a large savings on your phone bill every month.

– Reduce the amount of minutes you pay for

– Eliminate any services you do not use

– Request a discount through your employer

Every phone company provides discounts to hundreds of employees, this can help you to find some additional savings on your bill. When you are able to get great service for a low price, you will never have to worry about being without a phone.

Not only have smart phones effectively made the trusty old Sat Nav obsolete, they’ve left the old timer trudging off into the distanced red-faced and feeling dejected. You see, a smart phone just tell you where you are and where to go, it tells you where your friends think you should, or recommends places it thinks you want go , yep it can read your mind.

So what are the top five navigational apps out at the moment for the iPhone?

1. Tom Tom Sat Nav

All the functionality of a full sized Tom Tom Sat Nav, in one tint app. This allows you to do everything you would with a regular sat nav, on your phone. You can set a location and have the app read out directions to you in a range of hilarious voices, as well as save locations.

2. FourSquare

Foursquare is as much a game as a social network. It allows you to publish your physical location to all your friends so they can keep tabs on your whereabouts 24/7 – if you so wish! Find great places in hometown and recommend venues to others by adding tips. You can also get vouchers and exclusive deals by becoming the ‘major’ of certain locations.

3. Layar

Layar is an augmented reality app that uses your phone’s camera to take a snapshot of your environment and label it with markers that show points of interest. The bigger the marker, the closer the point of interest, simply walk towards it virtual signposts to find the nearest coffee house or gym

4. Track Me

This is a great app for anxious parents. Simply get your kids to install the app on their phone and you can track where they are and whether or not they are using their phone. Only problem is you may have some difficulty convincing your kids to install this one!

5. Google Maps

Not strictly an app since it comes as standard with the phone, Google Maps is like a ‘diet’ sat nav. You can now determine exactly where you are on the map and plot a route to your desired location, particularly useful for on-foot journeys.

According to reports, the father of a teen in Wyoming got angry when his daughter ran up an incredible bill with text messages. The bill was for $4,750 for Dena Christoffersen and her father who received 20,000 text messages during one month. The dad thought text messaging had been disabled for a plan that did not cover the service. The dad decided to get rid of the cell phone by smashing it with a hammer.

The daughter is now grounded for the remainder of the year although the mystery remains, how did she get away with texting 20,000 messages without anyone in the home noticing. According to newspaper reports she feels bad about all the money she wasted texting about her new clothes, what she was watching on television, what she thought about some boy at school. But if there’s a thought, it must be texted. So she’s most upset about having her father find out.
