Most people now take their cell phones for granted, and carry them everywhere. Vacation time is no different, but there are a few things to keep in mind when you’re planning a trip in order to make sure you’re not left out in the cold without a phone! A week or two before you leave, check the cell coverage in the area of your destination.
If it’s spotty or unavailable, let folks at home know not to expect contact from you during the days you’re in that area. Pack an extra charger or two, just in case yours is damaged or lost. If your vacationing out of the country, make sure your chargers are compatible with the local electrical supplies.
Shop for an extra screen cover, phone case, and any other accessories you might need while you’re gone. Check with your phone company to see what they have available; for example the TMobile website might have a new style of ear buds that would be perfect for your trip. Have a backup plan!
Look for phone supply stores in the area you plan to travel to, so if you need a battery or replacement phone you’ll know exactly where to get it. By planning ahead for your communication needs, you can be sure you’ll have a vacation that’s worry free when it comes to keeping your cell phone in good working order!
