15 Top tips for child/mobile safety. With Christmas drawing ever...

15 Top tips for child/mobile safety.

With Christmas drawing ever nearer (sorry!) the torturous decision of whether to buy your child their first smartphone might be playing on your mind and the repeated call of ‘But everyone else has one!’ ringing in your ears. So we’ve collated some advice for you and tips you can share with your child on how to stay safe. It’s by no means exhaustive but we hope it will be helpful.

5 Tips for parents

·         All UK mobile phone companies have to provide an internet filter on their phones to help block potentially harmful content. But, most operators don’t activate the filter unless you ask them to.

·         Get familiar with the social networking apps they’re using and ask to see their profile.

·         Make sure they understand why they shouldn’t post personal details like their home address, email, calendar, mobile number or the name of their school

  • Some social networks focus on letting their users upload and share photos and videos. A photo can be forwarded to other people or posted on the internet. So a picture you send to a small group of friends might be seen by millions of people worldwide. Once it’s on the internet it’s there forever.

·         With your teenagers, stress to them that if they use a location service alongside their social networking profile everyone on their ‘friends’ list will know where they are at any time, so that they have to be 100% certain they only allow ‘real’ friends who they know and trust to locate them.

10 Tips for kids

·         Only give your mobile number to friends and people that you trust.

·         Don’t lend your phone to someone you don’t know or trust, or put it in a place where other people could get hold of it.

·         Keep Bluetooth switched off to avoid messages from strangers nearby.

·         Don’t answer any calls that are from a withheld number, or from a number you don’t know.

·         Keep your mobile hidden – like in your jacket or coat pocket.

·         Stay alert. Don’t get so caught up in talking or texting that you aren’t aware of what’s going on around you (like traffic).

·         Look around you before you use your mobile.

·         Set up a PIN or password on your mobile.

·         Your online friends are strangers and may not be who they say they are.

  • People sometimes ask personal questions online. Giving out your mobile number, your address or any details about your school is not a good idea. You don’t have to give anyone any information if you don’t want to

For further information see sites such as Childline, NSPCC, Mumsnet and all network providers.

Could the right mobile deal save you enough cash for a holiday?
Thu, 04 Sep 2014 09:20:41 -0400

Entering into a contract of 36 or 24 months can be a daunting prospect, especially when the job market is so unpredictable, but that is exactly what most networks expect you to sign up for if you want a reasonably up to date smartphone. Despite the length of these contracts they still aren’t cheap with many being around £35 a month (if you keep within your allowance) plus an initial fee for the phone.

Although paying in instalments may seem like an attractive option the reality is that you can end up spending significantly more than you would have done if you had bought the phone outright and chosen a SIM only deal. For example, if you take the Orange/EE deal on an iPhone 5s 16gb, you will pay a total of £951.75 over 24 months before you own the phone outright. If you were to buy the phone (unlocked!) from SmartFoneStore and choose a SIM only contract you would pay £675.75 for the same phone, allowance and network. That is a saving of nearly £300 and you have the right to change your network or phone whenever you like!

We all want good value for money and this is a really easy way to save all year round. The savings we found were pretty typical, but in some cases you can save up to £500 a year. Do your homework before you hand over your cash and you could save enough for a trip abroad!

Win an iPhone 5S
Tue, 08 Jul 2014 10:22:00 -0400

We’ve had the Van Persie and we’ve had the Rodriguez - brilliant skill from the best World Cup since the vintage year of 82’.
 
Friend of SFS, Archie has sent in his own skill to SmartFoneStore;
He brings to you the Joe Hart.

Yes we know, not quite the same but we had to make up the English skill with a kid in his back garden because there wasn’t a lot to report from Brazil.

He is calling it the Joe Hart because you have to flick your side parting as you hit an overhead.  For anybody over the age of 8 this is just about impossible!

So what’s this got to do with SmartFoneStore?
Well, we love the slow-mo so much that we’ve decided to run a little competition.

How to enter?

Tweet us @SmartFoneStore with your best slow-mo videos using the hash tag #SFS5S and our favourite film maker will win an iPhone 5S.

If you don’t think you can win the 5S then why not buy one from SmartFoneStore?
Used prices start at £339.99.
An absolute bargain when compared to the £529.99 + from the High Street.

Are you festival ready??
Fri, 20 Jun 2014 07:33:46 -0400

89% of festival goers take their mobile with them to festivals. Undeniably, the pitfalls associated with rain, mud, Portaloos, crowds and general inebriation make mixing mobiles and festivals a risky business.

People need and want their phone with them but….

  • 1/5 won’t use their mobile after day 1 due to a flat battery.
  • 1/10 people break it.
  • 1/20 lose their handset.
  • 1/30 are a victim of theft.
  • 1/60 lose it down the Portaloo!

With this in mind SmartFoneStore has launched two new Festival Survival Packs to try to create a harmonious union between these two former foes and also provide you with many of the items you’re sure to require.

The concept was dreamed up by the SmartFoneStore team, musicians and keen festival goers themselves, after discussing their own needs at festivals

The SmartFone Festival Pack is designed to protect your smart phone, should you choose to take it. The contents will combat all the usual problems of keeping your phone safe, keeping it dry, a drained battery and what to do when you meet that amazing hottie but they’ve lost their phone!

The Old-Skool Phone Festival Pack is for those who decide it’s better safe than sorry and want to leave their expensive smartphones at home, or who want to take it in addition to their smartphone as back up.

”It can be hard to protect your belongings at festivals but these packs mean you never have to be without a working phone or risk leaving it in your tent.” said SmartFoneStore manager Andy Grimshaw.  “Festivals are expensive, no one wants the additional cost of having to replace their phone.”

It’s really good value at only £22.95 so, if you’re off to Glasto or any other festivals this summer – don’t leave home without it!

Why Minirig? You may have noticed that we have recently welcomed...

Why Minirig?

You may have noticed that we have recently welcomed a new addition to our accessories department, namely the wonderful and super cool Minirig! A portable speaker extraordinaire, built to deliver maximum aural pleasure at an affordable price.

So, what’s so special about this particular portable speaker when the market is flooded with hundreds of products?

First off, the passion of the Bristol based 1 man development team who dedicated 3 years of his life to perfecting the design. And what design! Not only does the single machined piece of anodised aluminium exterior look beautiful, the rings at the top and bottom are hardwearing polycarbonate carved with the Minirig moniker.

Each Minirig has 3 ports; the middle one is a power input, the top one is designed for maximum volume to be gained from low power units and the bottom one is for general use with higher power devices. The multiple inputs also mean that you can chain multiple Minirigs together and connect them to a subwoofer!

Really though, the sound quality is the star selling point. The standard speaker has a range of 100-20,000Hz and a 15 watt digital amplifier. It is loud. It doesn’t distort and the sound quality is beautiful. It’s truly incredible for such a small device.

The battery life is pretty much second to none. Wired magazine did a test and reckoned that if you used it 2-3 hours a day it would last you a two week holiday! You really can’t say fairer than that.

Some might say that it being a wired device is a drawback, but you always have to compromise on sound quality and battery life with wireless – something we would rather not do.

In conclusion, it’s a beautiful, well made, British built, quality speaker that blows the competition out of the water. You may be able to buy cheaper speakers but if you do, you’ll wish you hadn’t. You may not be familiar with Minirigs yet, but once you are you’ll never look back!
