• Prevent them from being exposed to extreme temperature differences. Extreme hot and cold are both factors in the early death of a cell phone. Heat can cause damage to the Cell phone LCD Screen and the cell phones other sensitive electronics. Cold can also cause the temperary loss of LCD Screen viability, and stall the mobile phones sensitive electronic
• Avoid exposure to moisture and dampness with your cell phone. Moisture is the nemesis of any cell phone. Do your best not to drop cell phone in the sink, pool, tub, glass of milk, and toilets. Aside from those obvious things, avoid picking up you cell phone with wet or damp hands. Or setting it down on a damp surface. If you and your phone have to enter a moisture rich area, then show all caution. A belt clip or a leash can be bought for cheap and help prevent the phone from taking a swim.
• Keep the phone from shock. Don't drop it. Dropping the phone is very bad for it. It's not really the dropping it, its when the phone strikes a hard surface. Surfaces like a counter top, sidewalk, hardwood floor, and such are not forgiving to cell phones.
•Keep the phone from getting scratched. This is as much cosmetic as anything else. Scratches are the death of touch screens. Cell phone touch screens are very fragile. The use of cell phone "skins" or cases is the best way to avoid this one. Keep in mind that scratching can occur as easily in a purse or pocket as being dropped.
• Charge your battery appropriatly. Cell phone batterys are often a hudge limitation on a cell phone. Many problems that cell phones can have are due to battery that are weak and dying. Check the manufacturer guidlines if you have any questions on if you are maintaining your batteries life correctly. Also batteries are not very expensive as opposed to buying a new cell phone altogether. Just replacing your battery is an option that shoud be kept in mind.
• Keep your cell phone dust free and clean. Dust can slowly work it's way into everything. It can work its way under the buttons and the LCD screen. Or in between the digitizer (touch screen) and the LCD Screen itself. It can also cause damage to the cell phone electronics in the form of static and heat build up. A micro fiber cloth is handy to keep around to clean the surfaces of your cell phone.
