Keep your battery topped up
There’s nothing worse than running out of battery when you’re out and about, so make sure you take your charger with you. And, remember lots of trains have plugs for passengers to use. Or, why not invest in a portable charger? We stock all types that you can use for topping up on the go, check them out here.
Use Wifi Calling when you can
Find out how to set up Wifi and 4G Calling. Once you’ve set it up, you’ll be able to make and receive calls wherever you have wifi. You won’t be charged extra for using it either – your calls are included as part of your usual tariff allowance, and out-of-tariff calls are charged at our standard rate. Just bear in mind that you’ll need to be using a compatible device.
Get online with your tablet or laptop
We can help keep you connected when you’re on the move or working remotely on the go. It’s all about mobile broadband. We’ve got all sorts of devices you can use to create a wifi hotspot, or to connect your laptop or tablet when you’re away from home. Want to know more? Take a look at our breakdown of all the mobile broadband devices you can get.
Hold on to the memories
You may have taken the most amazing picture of a sunset, or eaten the best ice cream sundae, but you don’t need to share them with your followers then and there. If you can’t get connected for some reason, just hold on to them and upload as soon as you can. Plus, you can enjoy them all over again when you do this. And, it gives you some extra time to think about which captions and hashtags you want to use.
