Data Usage

                  ===== Insert text regarding state=SA here. ======                 

Your mobile phone uses data each time you access the internet. Mobile services such as maps, video streaming, video calls, opening emails with large attachments and playing graphic online multiplayer games will use a lot of your data. Here are some tips to help you reduce your data use.

Tips to reduce data usage

  • Turn off push notifications and background data for apps.
  • Remove apps you don’t use from your phone.
  • Delete unsent emails (they may try to resend themselves over and over again).
  • Turn off roaming if you are travelling overseas.
  • Use Wi-Fi whenever you can.
  • Set your phone to automatically connect to Wi-Fi (at home, office, Wi-Fi hotspots in public).
  • Disable location services.
  • Wait till you have access to Wi-Fi to download apps/games, watch movies/videos and stream music.
