• Changing your settings frequently
If you are leaving your phone unattended for a few hours while you are sleeping, exercising or travelling, put your phone in flight mode. This not only helps to conserve battery, it also saves data. A few hours saved every day can accumulate to a substantial amount of data at the end of the month!
