How To Cut Down Costs on Your Cellphone

Cut Down Costs on Your Cellphone

These days, cellphones are everywhere. Whether they are touch screen or QWERTY, pink or black, you can bet everyone has one (or two)… People use them to take photos, SMS friends, make phonecalls and play games… all of it coming at an unnecessarily high price. The good news? It doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. Arm yourself with the knowledge of how to cut those costs, without giving up your favourite gadget.

Safeguard the phone

Replacing a phone by paying cash is a hard pill to swallow. Cellphones don’t come cheap these days, and having to pay out of your pocket won’t go unnoticed. Take out cell phone insurance to cover you for any damage or theft.

Free is awesome

Whether it’s a free app or free minutes; use it! You might see a great app about gaming, but it probably costs, right? Don’t download the first app you see; browse the app store and find a cheaper alternative or even a completely free version. As for free minutes, this is a great way to save money if your phone is used mainly to call. Ask your service provider about free minute offers. It may be limited to certain hours of the day, but it’s worth it. Also worth a try are (free) apps which allow you to call friends at no cost to you (if they have the same free app installed).

Time yourself

Do you mostly call people in the evenings, or the weekends? There are specific calling plans available for these time slots, and they will save you a big chunk of money by offering discounts when you call between certain hours.

Jobs Trailer

Posted by on Jun 23, 2013 in Movies | 0 comments

The first trailer of the upcoming movie about Steve Jobs has been released and it looks like a humdinger. Seeing as I am currently reading the biography of Steve Jobs this holds even more interest to me.

It does feel like it has a bit of a modern, current day touch but I think it does portray the correct time properly. I think Ashton Kutcher looks like the perfect fit but we will have to wait and see.

This trailer for Elysium looks flipping sick. Elysium is the new movie by South African Director Neill Blomkamp of District 9 fame.

Just watch. Oh ja, it has Matt Damon who looks like he plays a killer role here.

September 7 it comes out I think.

Wrappz Phone Covers

Posted by on Jun 13, 2013 in General | 0 comments

Recently Chris and I were looking out for cool ways to get some sick branding done on some more everyday items so that when we were out and about we were flashing the iMod Digital brand around. We were looking to get some wicked stickers/covers done for our laptops that if we head out to work from anywhere we could be working and promoting the brand at the same time.

We came across a wicked company called Wrappz that seems to do everything! They make custom phone cases, covers, laptop sleeves etc. Literally this place seems to cover everything.

I found this on the site:

Wrappz.co.za is a SA company providing custom designed covers, skins, cases, stickers and other accessories to protect, cover and personalise your gadgets. Custom skins include bespoke designs for mobile phones, iPads, iPods, iPod Touch, Laptops, Kindles and all Tablets, PSPs, DS, Xbox etc. Other Mobile Phone accessories include iPhone skins and cases, BlackBerry, HTC, Nokia, Samsung, Sony Ericsson, Google skins, LG and Motorola skins.

I think it is so awesome that you can go and design your own covers etc. Now all we need to do is decide on our design and get cracking! Their prices actually seem pretty reasonable compared to other places that we had a look at.
