Hence, sleep mode reduces the frequency of charging, and ultimately it works for your pocket, too, as you can cut down some units of your electricity bill.

Tip No. 04 – How to save from ditching your Home phone line
“Phone bill is too much now.”
This was a common complaint I heard those days from my parents at the end of every month. This is so true; when you look at the breakdown of the phone bill, you get to see a lot of tax levy, and considerably a tiny amount is charged for your voice calls. So why do we need a telephone? The answer is pretty much straightforward. That is to communicate messages. So why do you want to pay extra that goes beyond the purpose? Unlike earlier, the home phone is not the only option for us nowadays. This is because we have so many cost-effective communication devices and networks at hand. You can use skype/WhatsApp to make calls or budget voice and SMS packages introduced by mobile service providers. One more extra tip for you. Try to use a pre-paid connection rather than a post-paid connection because then you have to pay only for the actual usage, not for any tax levy. So easily you can save money from Home with less effort.
Tip No. 05 – Extended warranties rip you off.
Sometimes sellers out there ask you to go for an extended warranty, saying it is helpful in the long run. But is it true? Does it save you money? It is a trap!! You might not use an item for a long time. Especially when it comes to an electronic item, No way you would use it for more than two years. So why are you spending extra on an extended warranty? It is an advertising illusion. Stop wasting your money on these unwanted extras.
Tip No. 06 – Use Wi-Fi or Mobile data instead of phone calls
Regular phone calls cost a lot of money. Just imagine you want to take an overseas call and trying to connect through a typical phone call. Good Lord!! Your phone bill will go to sixes. All you can do is install WhatsApp or Skype and even connect to video calls. Yet, it costs you lower than phone calls. OMG!! Those were the days which we had to spend hell a lot of money when making international calls. This is when we feel the internet and communication apps are gods sent. Network coverage is almost all over the world. So, we do not necessarily be worried about signal issues. Of course, there could be buffering issues, but now it is manageable. If you still used to take more normal phone calls, it is high time to switch to WhatsApp or Skype calls. Alright, guys, step by step, we have come to an end of our article.
