Be aware of cell phone tips during bitterly cold weather

As a blast of arctic air continues to chill the region, cell phone providers say there are some things to keep in mind if you’re going to be out in the elements with your device.


They say it’s important to make sure your device is fully charged as battery power can be significantly reduced in cold temperatures. They also recommend keeping it in a case to help protect it from the elements, and to keep your device in a pocket when outdoors, instead of a purse or bag.


People should also let their device warm up before you try to use it. If a phone powers off due to the cold, give it time to warm up to room temperature before turning it on. People should never use a heating source, such as a blow dryer, to warm up their phone.
