Extend The Life of Your Bell Cell Phone Battery

Saturday, August 29th, 2009

It?s annoying to discover your battery has gone dead when you need your phone the most. Here are some helpful tips to extend the life of your Bell cell phone battery.

Tip #1 – The easiest way to preserve your battery life is the one that?s overlooked the most, and that?s simply to turn your cell phone off. Of course, this isn?t an option all the time, but if it?s late and you are off to bed no one will be calling, or if you are at the office and you have all your calls, coming through the office you can also shut your Bell cell phone off.

Tip #2 – Whenever possible, use either ringer or vibrate. The vibrate function use a lot of battery power. Using both the ringer and vibrate is simply a waste of your battery power unless there is a really good reason to have both on, other than by default.

Tip #3 ? Bluetooth headsets can be very convenient. However, they are also a heavy draw on your battery. Either turn off your Bluetooth headset when you don?t need it, or go back to a corded headset, which uses up a lot less battery power.

Tip #4 ? Skip animated wallpapers and all the other really cool stuff because they can also drain your battery power. Find a nice picture you like and use that. It?s simple and it isn?t going to waste your precious battery power.

Tip #5 ? Use your cell phone for what it is a phone and messaging device. When you know you are not going to be able to recharge your phone for extended periods of time, don?t play games, don?t watch videos or scroll through photos, and don?t use it to listen to music. All of these are very hard on your battery power and you could find yourself with a dead cell phone when you need it the most.

Tip #6 ? Turn the brightness down on the screen. New LCD screens require an incredible amount of battery power. While each Bell phone is a little different, you will find the brightness adjustment somewhere in your phones main settings.

Tip #7 ? Charge your Bell cell phone battery only when it really needs to be charged. It?s best if you can let it go dead or at the very least below half a charge. If you charge it too often when it is not nearly dead you shorten the batteries memory and you start to get less and less time off the battery. Most batteries will last a minimum of a few days on standby, so there is really no need to charge them every night if you are not a heavy user.

Tip #8 ? Your battery connection on your Bell phone can become corroded over time, which will lead to poor performance by your battery. A cotton swab with a little rubbing alcohol can be used to clean the contacts. Clean the entire compartment. You?ll be impressed at just how much this little housecleaning act can improve the performance of your batter.

Tip #9 ? Bell cell phone batteries can be really expensive. If you use have a lot of talk time on your phone, or you just can?t live without the music and game features, you can always consider investing in a one or more spare batteries. That way your phone will never be without battery power.? Cellarama.com’s Bell Battery Program offers Canada’s largest selection of batteries for Bell Mobility cellular phones.

What to Do If You Lose Your Bell Cell phone

Cell phones are lost and stolen every day. Many people take no action, thinking that their phone will reappear. Many also go through the nightmare of receiving huge phone bills because they did not report their missing phone to Bell Mobility.

A decision not to report your lost or stolen phone can be a very costly one. If your phone ends up in someone else?s possession, it might be used for long distance calls or to charge expensive downloads to your account. Although you may be found not responsible for these charges, do you really want to go through the hassle?

Contact Bell

Whether your phone was simply misplaced or was actually stolen?even if you?re not sure what happened to it?it?s best to contact Bell immediately and let them know that you don’t know where your phone is. This simple act will provide you with the most protection and the Bell representative can confirm for you the date and time your phone was last used.

How to make the report

Bell has a few methods you can use to report your lost or stolen phone, but the simplest way to make the report is to call Bell Mobility Customer Service at 1-800-667-0123.

When you call, the first thing the Bell representative does is remove the lost or stolen phone from your account. This means that no one will be able to use your phone to make or receive calls or to transmit data.

Next, the Bell representative places your phone’s ESN on Bell’s negative file. This means that your phone cannot be used on the Bell network.? Many stolen phones end up being sold for use by others, but once your phone is on the negative file, it can no longer be activated and used by anyone.

While you?re talking to the Bell representative, make sure to ask if there were any calls placed from your phone during the time it?s been missing. If enough time has passed, the representative may be able to determine whether your phone was used and even what numbers were dialled.

What to do if you find your phone

If you locate your phone, simply contact Bell again. They will remove your phone from their negative file and add your ESN back to your account.

Remember, when your phone is missing, it’s always better to err on the side of caution. Report your phone to Bell. It is better to be safe than sorry.

Bell BlackBerry Service Can Suffer without Data Features

Tuesday, August 4th, 2009
Bell BlackBerry without Data

Bell BlackBerry without Data

Bell Mobility’s BlackBerry phones are great data devices. As the BlackBerry has grown in popularity, though, more people have been buying it to use it only as a regular phone, without adding the often expensive BlackBerry data packages.

One problem that has arisen is that, with older Bell BlackBerry models, the phone reception works best when the data package is added. If you have purchased an older BlackBerry model such as the 6750, 7750, 7250, 7130e, or 8703e and have not also added the BlackBerry data package, you will likely notice poor signal reception, missed calls, shorter battery life, and other problems.

Why does this happen? The BlackBerry is designed primarily as a data device, so the expectation is that it will operate at peak performance when it is connected to its data network. When older BlackBerry’s cannot access the data network, it allocates a greater portion of its resources to try to connect to it. This effort reduces the performance of its non-data functions, including phone reception.

With its data feature enabled, the older BlackBerry has a superior phone signal reception compared to most phones. Without the data feature enabled, you will quickly notice poor reception quality.

What to do?

With an older BlackBerry, you will need to add a data feature to your account to begin receiving optimal phone service. At the writing of this article, the introductory data feature for a Bell Mobility BlackBerry can be added for between $15 and $20 per month. Adding the data feature will give you access to the Internet, BlackBerry Messenger, and other popular BlackBerry features.

If you have a newer BlackBerry and do not have a data package, and are experiencing phone signal problems, you have another option. With newer Bell BlackBerry devices such as the Curve, Pearl, and Storm, the design is different. You can turn off the device?s Data Services feature, which will resolve the problems with the phone signals.

To turn off the Data Services feature on a newer BlackBerry, complete the following simple steps:

Step 1: Click on the Options icon.

Step 2: Locate and select the Mobile Network icon.

Step 3: Change the option for Data Services to Off.
That’s it!
