What we're chatting about!
In a recent survey Techlicious co-authored with Sprint, we found that 34% of people run out of data every month, which means a lot of people are on the wrong cell phone plan. Frankly, that's not a surprise. The demand for data is skyrocketing due to increased streaming video and music consumption, especially among the youngest smartphone owners.
Today, the average smartphone owner uses 2.9GB of data every month, according to NPD Group, up from 1.8GB in 2014. So how much data can you and your family expect to use? Are there ways to minimize data consumption? How can you afford smartphones for the members of your family?
Join us on Wednesday, September 2, 2015 at 9PM ET/ 6PM PT. We'll cover:
- Are you on the right cell phone plan? Most cell phone plans today offer unlimited text and talk, with the amount of data you get being the differentiating factor. We tell you how to properly determine your family's data needs.
- What is the most cost-effective way to purchase your next phone? Today, you can lease a phone, purchase it or enter into a 2-year contract. We tell you the pros and cons of each
- Are you afraid of switching carriers? We go through the most common misperceptions and tell you how you can easily make the change.
- What should you consider when adding kids to a plan? We walk you through a range of parental control options, from limiting screen time, preventing calls and texts late at night and curbing distracted driving.
