Transferring contacts and media
The first thing you should do with your new phone is transfer all media and contacts from your old phone. If you have created a backup on your old phone, transfer it to your new phone and restore the backup. If you have backed up your content and media on your Google account, Google offers an option to restore them immediately after logging into the phone (on android phones). Google also provides the option of transferring the app data from your old phone to the new one. You will feel more at home knowing everything is in place.
Activating your phone
Once you have transferred everything, the next step is to activate your phone. If you are porting your number from another carrier, this can be done online. You will need to provide your new phone’s IMEI number, which can be found in the box or on the back of the device. If you are starting fresh with a new number, you can activate your phone by visiting a store or calling customer service.
Setting up voicemail
The next thing you should do is set up your voicemail. This can usually be done by calling your own number and following the prompts. You will need to create a greeting and choose a password. Once you have set up your voicemail, add it to your contacts so you can easily access it later.
Now that your phone is set up and ready to go, it’s time to start downloading apps. If you are an iPhone user, you can download apps from the App Store. Android users can download apps from the Google Play Store. Windows Phone users can download apps from the Windows Phone Store. Once you have found an app, you want to install, tap on it and follow the prompts.
Protecting your privacy and the phone
Not many users consider protecting their new phone as soon as they get it. Protecting your new phone comes before anything else. The first step is to set up a lock screen password or pattern. This will help keep your device safe if it is ever lost or stolen. You should also consider installing a security app, such as Lookout Mobile Security, which can help to protect your device from malware and other threats.
Adding email accounts
The last thing you should do is add your email accounts to your new phone. This can be done by going into the Settings menu and selecting Accounts & Sync. From there, you will need to enter your email address and password for each account you want to add. Once you have added your accounts, you can access your email from your new phone.
Exploring additional resources and tools
Once you have everything ready, play around with your phone. Connect to new Bluetooth devices, and check out the capacity of the chipset. The goal here is to test the waters with your new phone to see if the phone delivers everything that it promised it would. In addition, familiarize yourself with the phone’s user interface and get to know your new device’s different features and capabilities. There may be a ton of new features that you may not be aware of. Many users buy a phone because they like the features but never end up using the feature for which they purchased the phone.
Maximize battery life from day one
Battery care doesn’t only begin when you start noticing that something is wrong with your phone. As much as possible, you should get into the habit of taking care of your battery from day one. This means not leaving your phone charging overnight, not using it while charging and avoiding exposure to extreme temperatures. These are just some basic tips that can help prolong the life of your battery and keep it working properly for a longer period.
There are a few things you should do immediately after buying a new phone. The first is to transfer contacts and media from your old phone if you have created a backup. You can also activate your phone by visiting a store or calling customer service. Next, you should set up voicemail by calling your own number and following the prompts. You will need to create a greeting and choose a password. After that, start downloading apps from the appropriate app store for your device. Finally, protect your privacy by setting up a lock screen password or pattern and installing a security app. Adding email accounts is also recommended if you want to access them from your new phone. Once you have everything set up, play around with your phone and get to know its features.
