Thinking of traveling to Mexico? Already have plans to board the plane with anticipation of relaxing in the Yucatan, Mexico City, or Cabo San Lucas? Wondering if you’re better off leaving your wireless phone at home?

Did you know you can turn your smartphone into a mobile hotspot? A hotspot allows you to connect a laptop or tablet to the internet when you’re away from home or not close to a location with Wi-Fi service. Once you enable a mobile hotspot on a smartphone, it uses the cellular network to send out a Wi-Fi signal so other devices can connect.
If you're in the market for an unlimited data plan these days, you really have to check the fine print. That's because most carriers now offer throttling along with their unlimited data plans.
However much you love your smartphone, you’ll eventually be looking for an upgrade. You may want the latest version of your current model or to try a new model, or your phone may just be getting old and “beat up.”
But what are you supposed to do with your old smartphone when it’s time to upgrade? Here are four ways to make your old smartphone work for you, rather than letting it sit around collecting dust.
When your smartphone screen is just too small for what you want to do and a laptop is just too big to carry around, a tablet is a perfect portable solution. But how do you make the most out of your tablet?
Wireless consumers are loyal to their favorite mobile devices. They’re accustomed to either Android or Apple operating systems (OS) and they’re also particular about using certain models of smartphones. Everyone loves getting all the latest smartphone features, but which users are more likely to upgrade from their current device?
If you’re under 40, you’re probably familiar with the wireless world we live in. Teens are even more so, since they’ve barely known life without smartphones. But many parents, including Baby Boomers, are still learning the ropes.
When your parents got their first smartphone, you probably sat down and tutored them on using new features. But did you remember to teach them basic smartphone security before you showed them how to work the camera or sign in to Facebook? If not, here are four smartphone privacy and security tips to pass along to your less technologically savvy family members.
When you’re choosing a wireless plan, you’re often faced with a huge decision: unlimited or shared data?
Everything you do on your cell phone uses mobile data, including calling and texting. Mobile data usage is calculated using gigabytes (GB). Voice calls and texts use such a small amount of data that most carriers don’t count their usage against monthly data plans. But for sending pictures, posting status updates, checking email, or just accessing the internet, wireless carriers do keep track of data usage.
Having enough space on your phone to download pictures, music, or the latest app is a priority for many smartphone users. We could all use a few extra gigabytes (GB) of storage on our phones. While some smartphones let you add small memory chips, if you’re a heavy user, that extra space might not be enough.
