How To Get More Money From Your Old Phones

April 16, 2014

The truth is buying a new phone can be expensive. This is especially true due to all of the new technology rapidly coming out. Because of this new technology, phones have become (in some cases) more expensive than computers. Because of this, people are looking for ways to reduce the burden and/or cost associated with upgrading/buying them.

A lot of people simply throw away their old phones after they purchase a new one. The truth is, you can get a lot of money from your old phones. You simply need to know “how to do it.” The good news is that we are going to be discussing exactly that in this article. Below you will find the best tips on how to get more money from your old phones.

How To Get More Money From Your Old Phones:

1. eBay.

By far, the easiest and best way to get more money from your old phones is to sell them on eBay. By selling your old phones on eBay, you will be able to get top dollar for your old phones. Depending on the condition and the market rate for your phone, your return will vary. If you have a phone that is still in demand, you will likely find that your return is more than you would have originally anticipated.

2. Unlock Your Phone.

What a lot of people do not realize and/or do not do before considering selling their phones is increasing the value of them. The fact is, by “unlocking” your phone, you will be allowing more people to use the phone. By increasing the demand, you are going to inevitably increase the price you can charge. Plus, an older version of the phone in the United States, may have just come out in another country. This further increases the attractiveness of the phone in question.

Here are the links to the carrier customer services to request for phone unlock:

 

3. Condition.

You need to ensure that you keep your phones looking great. The only way to ensure that your phones survive one or two years of constant usage is if you purchase a solid case for them. Unless you have magic powers, you are going to experience some “drops” or “mishaps” with your phone. As long as you have a case on your phone, you should be able to limit the damage and keep your phone in good condition.

4. Sell On Craigslist.

Another place that you can sell your phone is on Craigslist. This is going to likely get you a better return than eBay (if you are not a frequent eBay Seller). For this reason, you are going to receive more money from a sale on Craigslist because you will not have to pay the associated eBay seller fees. However, you will likely have to spend more time and effort selling the actual device.

5. Third Party Cell Phone Buying Websites.

Gazelle.com

There are a lot of websites that will buy your old phone from you. Gazelle.com is one of them. This is only a good option if you do not want to do any work and just want some money from your phones. You will likely not get top dollar when you use this option.

What Should You Do Now That Microsoft Has Stopped Supporting Windows XP?

April 14, 2014

Microsoft dropped a bit of a bomb recently. As of this year they will no longer be supporting their highly successful Windows XP operating system, which is still used in millions of homes and businesses across the globe. “No longer supporting” means no more updates, which can create security holes as time goes by. It also means that if you have any problems with XP, you may not be able to get help from their call-in services. In essence, Windows XP is now officially a technological fossil, and people are scrambling to figure out what to do.

So what should you do now that Windows XP will be no longer supported? Depending on your finances, your needs, and your level of expertise, there are many options available to you. Read on and decide which option best suits you.

Upgrade To A More Recent Operating System

The most obvious answer is to finally upgrade your operating system. Windows XP has been out for over a decade now, and that’s pretty much “ancient” in terms of technology. While it may run fine now, eventually it won’t be able to keep up with any new programs you install. We recommend finding a new, more recent operating system to upgrade to. Windows users have generally been fans of Windows 7, which is still so popular that many people are wiping Windows 8 off their personal computers and reinstalling Windows 7. So, it will still be around for a while. If you’re really adventurous and don’t want to have to change operating systems for a long while, then Windows 8 is the way to go.

Do Nothing And Keep Windows XP

Just because it’s no longer supported doesn’t mean Microsoft is going to send out masked marauders to wipe XP off your computer. It’s perfectly okay to keep XP running on your computers for a while longer. There are just a few caveats. First, you must understand that this option is really only for those who can’t afford to upgrade or don’t know how. If you use your computer fairly frequently, we really recommend an upgrade, as it will help protect your information and make your life a lot easier in the long run. But if you only use your computer to check your email and play solitaire, you can probably afford to wait a year or two more.

In short,there’s no reason to panic if you still want to use Windows XP. Microsoft no longer supporting it only means no new updates for the software and less phone support. If these things don’t bother you, then don’t sweat it. But if you have a lot of personal data or use your computer a lot, you may want to start saving up now for an upgrade.

Whether you choose to upgrade or stick with Windows XP doesn’t really matter, but it’s always a bit of a shock when a developer announces that they’re no longer supporting a product. In the world of technology, nothing speaks to the passage of time more!

If you still have an older computer with Windows XP, you might want to check out our Computer Hardware and see if you can find some newer hardware such as WiFi adapter, PS2 to USB adapter, or VGA to HDMI adapter to keep up with the technology. Click here!

Best Tips To Save Money On Your Cellphone Bills

April 11, 2014

Do you wish you could decrease some of the costs associated with your cell phone bill? Are you annoyed that your bill seems to be increasing every month? A lot of the cellular providers do not want you to read what we are about to uncover about saving money on your cell phone bills.

Saving money on your cell phone bills does not have to be difficult. By following the tips below, you should be able to save a ton of money and cut down your cellphone bills for good.

Smartphones

Top Tips To Save Money On Your Cellphone Bills:

1. Go Prepaid.

A lot of people think that prepaid services are “worse” or provide lousy coverage. The truth is, a lot of the prepaid cellular options out there are just as good as their postpaid counterparts. There is a couple of ways to go about this. You can either look at your cellular providers prepaid options or you can look at third party options. The truth is, a lot of the third party options are going to utilize “rented” cellular towers from the top cell phone companies. This means that most of them are utilizing the same towers that your cellular provider is providing to you for a fraction of the cost. There are prepaid options out there that provide unlimited calling, texting, and data usage (capped). Some of the top options are; Straight Talk, T-Mobile Prepaid, and AT&T GoPhone.

2. Utilize FREE Wifi Calling.

Some carriers do not allow this option. However, if you are currently utilizing the T-Mobile network, you can utilize FREE WiFi calling. You can do this with just about any smartphone that has the feature. Check to see if your provider and/or phone is capable of tapping into this feature.

3. Messaging Applications.

A lot of peoples bills are increased by $20 or more due to the inclusion of text messaging. The truth that carriers don’t want you to know is that you shouldn’t be paying a cent for text messaging anymore! You can utilize messaging applications that utilize data instead of sending the messages the traditional way. This not only means you do not have to pay for “messaging.” But also, you will be able to send messages back and forth at real time (think Instant Messaging). The top applications for this feature are; WhatsApp, BBM, Facebook Messenger, and WeChat.

4. Use Wifi.

Instead of dropping $30 for the inclusion of data in your mobile plan, you can try to opt to go WiFi only. The truth is most places offer you the opportunity to piggy back on their WiFi. Therefore, if you do not need constant access to the mobile Internet, you can eliminate a ton of excess charges from your bill by going the “free WiFi” route.

As you can see, there are a ton of ways to eliminate charges on your bills and save a ton of money in the process. If you utilize a few of these tips, you will notice  substantial savings right away.

After you save money from your phone bill, now is the time to buy Phone Accessories to protect you expensive phone! Click here!

Amazon FireTV Announced Today

April 2, 2014

If you go to Amazon.com today, you will see a big announcement from Jeff Bezos regarding the new Amazon FireTV.

I am somewhat divided on this because there are similar items already in the market such as Roku, Google Chromecast, Apple TV and a lot of people also use their Xbox, PS, and PC as their media center.

In term of specification, Amazon FireTV is almost similar than the other. The only “new” feature is the voice recognition, yes, you can say the command term and the device will pick up your instruction.

With $99 retail price, the FireTV is a bit steep and it is in the high price bracket. Good deal hunter can get Roku 3 for less than $50 and Chromecast was on sale for less than $20 few weeks ago.

So how the Amazon FireTV will survive in this already saturated market? Only time will tell, and maybe, just because it is carrying Amazon brand on it and Amazon has the most traffic for online retailer, the device will become a hit like its Kindle device.

Below is the announcement and specification from Amazon.com,

AmazonFireTV

“Fire TV is a tiny box that plugs into your HDTV. It’s the easiest way to enjoy Netflix, Prime Instant Video, Hulu Plus, WatchESPN, low-cost video rentals, and more. With instant access to over 200,000 TV episodes and movies, plus all your favorite subscriptions and streaming services, you can watch what you want, when you want. If you’re a Prime member, you get unlimited access to thousands of popular movies and TV shows, including exclusives like Downton Abbey, The Americans, Alpha House, and Under the Dome.

Fire TV has voice search that actually works. The old way of searching with a TV remote—scrolling and clicking one letter at a time on an alphabet grid—is painful. With Fire TV you simply speak the title, actor, or genre into the remote and you’re done.

Fire TV may be tiny on the outside, but it has huge hardware specs on the inside. It has a powerful quad-core processor, dedicated GPU, 2 GB of memory, and dual-band, dual-antenna Wi-Fi. With a fast, fluid interface, high definition 1080p video, and Dolby Digital Plus surround sound, Fire TV looks—and sounds—amazing. We also added an exclusive new feature called ASAP that predicts what movies and TV episodes you’ll want to watch and gets them ready to stream instantly. No one likes waiting for videos to buffer.

As a bonus, we also added games. With Fire TV you can play blockbuster titles like Minecraft, The Walking Dead, Monsters University, the Amazon exclusive Sev Zero, plus great free games. There are over a hundred titles to explore, with thousands more coming soon. These games are a great value—the average price of paid games is only $1.85.”

Also check out CNET’s take on comparing all the devices: http://www.cnet.com/news/amazon-fire-tv-vs-roku-vs-chromecast-vs-apple-tv/

Let us know what you think about this new device, would you get it?
