Further advice for data hogs

Posted By on Thu, Mar 8, 2012 at 12:06 PM

In yesterday's heartbreaking Confessions of a Data Hog post, I wrote about exceeding the newly instituted limits on AT&T's "unlimited data" iPhone plan.

Since then, I've heard from a number of others who are, for the same reason, facing reduced data speeds.

While yesterday's post offered some tips on how to cut back on data usage, I've since been made aware of a more comprehensive New York Times article.

Although the piece originally ran in 2010, it's full of useful suggestions, including some little-known suggestions on how to extend battery life.

Did you know, for instance, that streaming music will use up more battery life at higher volumes? (So if you're listening to Rhapsody on a trip to Denver, it helps to turn DOWN the volume on your phone and turn UP the volume on your car stereo system.)

Anyway, I'd go into more of them here, but I wouldn't want to deprive the Times of a few potential page hits. So if you're interested in preserving both battery life and data speeds, check out the article here.
