The Benefits of Your Data Plan and the Things you need to know
Having a data plan means you are connected wherever you happen to be. You can use your phone or tablet as a map and never get lost again. Instantly receive updates and pictures from your family about important events that you can’t attend in person. Download apps to find nearby restaurants and shops. Or use those same apps to check reviews and find out what best suits you.
Think of data as being kind of like gas: it helps get you where you want to go online. You use some each time you grab email, surf the Web or download an app. But it’s not limitless. And if you use it all up, you’ll need to pay for more.
Make sure you know what’s included in your plan. You can find out by logging into your MyRogers account online, or on your phone with the Rogers My Account app. Knowing how much data you have in your bucket will help you avoid overage fees – charges for using more than your allotted amount. If you find you need more data, you can adjust your plan to keep from going over.
Quick Tips to Manage your Data
Track and review your usage regularly. You can always check your data usage through your MyRogersaccount online, or right on your phone with the Rogers My Account app. Don’t have a MyRogers account already set up?
Different activities use different amounts of data. Not all online activities consume data equally. Text emails use very little data, but adding pictures – which can be several megabytes in size each – can greatly increase email data consumption. Online video tends eats up a lot of data, too, as can streaming radio for prolonged periods. If you plan to regularly use services like these, ensure you have a big enough data bucket. Check out the Rogers Plan Builder to see how much data certain tasks take.
Use Wi-Fi when you can. Your phone uses no wireless data when you’re connected to a Wi-Fi network, like the one you probably have at home. Planning to download bigger apps, videos, pictures and music when you’re connected to the internet via Wi-Fi can play a significant role in ensuring you don’t exceed your monthly data allowance.
Manage your automatic updates and push notifications. You can often adjust the frequency of these updates, or even quality settings that affect file sizes. Consider adjusting your settings for updates to:
Online photo albums or cloud storage that automatically back up files or upload photos taken.
Podcasts and Web feeds that automatically download any new files in the series to your device.
Push notifications for apps you use less often, which can be turned off.
Email settings that can be set to Pull instead of Push so that your inbox refreshes manually only when you want it to. You can also adjust settings for email sizes and attachments. Emails with large attachments that get stuck in your outbox may be resent repeatedly, incurring usage each time.
Shut down background Apps you’re not using. Chances are good you’ve got apps open on your smartphone that you don’t even know about. Often, they run in the background to keep you up to date on software upgrades and so on. Left unchecked though, these apps can eat up a sizable serving of your monthly data-plan allowance for wireless internet. If in doubt, shut ‘em down!
On your Android device, select Settings, then Application Manager. Select the app you want to disable and press Force Stop. On some Android devices, you can also view all your running apps by pressing the multitasking softkey, or pressing and holding the Menu key. Swipe the app to the right to close it.
On your iPhone, double-tap the Home button to see all running apps. Tap and hold an app then tap the red X to close apps you’re not using.
On your Windows Phone 8 device, long press on the Back softkey. Tap the app you want to quit from the list, then tap the Back key until you get to your home screen.
On your BlackBerry running OS 6 or 7, press and hold the BlackBerry button until the Application Switchercomes up. This shows you all the apps currently running on your device. Scroll to the app you’d like to close, and select Exit/Close.
If you have a BlackBerry 10, running apps are visible on the Running Apps pane. To access it while in an app, swipe upwards from the BlackBerry brand at the bottom. To close a running app, select the X at the bottom right corner of the app you want to close.
