If you’re a big photography fan then chances are that you’ve got a fair few photos stored on your phone. But keeping pics on your mobile isn’t always the best idea, since you’re likely to be taking up a whole bunch of space. Fortunately, there are other options, and today we’re looking at the best cloud photo storage choices.

Let’s face it, mobile phone bills can get expensive, particularly if you’re not always careful about who you’re calling, how often, and when. If you’re on a budget then a Pay as You Go phone plan allows you to control your phone spending more carefully, but PAYG prices do tend to be more expensive than contract prices, so you won’t necessarily be saving in the long run. Fortunately, with some operators there is a mid ground option, what we call a capped contract. We’re here with everything you need to know about capped contracts so you can avoid scary phone bills!
Signing a mobile contract can be a great idea. Generally, a contract gives you cheaper prices than Pay as You Go, and often you get a shiny new mobile phone as well. That’s all very well and good, but what happens if you find that you can’t keep the contract that you signed? We’re here to tell you the true cost of contract cancellation, so if you’re unhappy with your mobile contract, read on!

Whether it’s a crazy ex or an annoying telemarketer, we all get calls that we don’t want from time to time.

Security is always a big concern with personal data, and with the amount of data we’re keeping on our smart phones this concern is growing. Of course, you don’t want someone logging into your Facebook and posting embarrassing messages, or reading your personal emails. But there’s more to it than that. Many of us have mobile banking, or accounts such as Amazon that contain our credit card information and can allow people to spend our cash. And there’s even the threat of identity fraud. Whilst many of us won’t be at huge risk, it’s always better to be safe than sorry. Fortunately, many major banking services, apps, and even email softwares are introducing two factor authentication in an effort to keep your data even safer. So what is this, do you need it, how do you use it? That’s what we’re here to find out.
If you’ve got an iPhone then you’ve got access to Apple’s free iCloud backup service.

If you’re interested in doing some cool stuff with your phone then you’re going to need to enable Android Developer Options.
