At a time when a great deal of business is conducted on the go using smartphones, it’s become even more important to be conscious of how much data you’re using. Whether you’re using your own phone or one issued by your company, mobile data is money — and if you don’t optimize your phone to handle it intelligently, you’re throwing dollars down the drain.
After all, whether you have a plan with a monthly data cap or a setup where you’re billed for the data you use, you’re essentially paying for all the virtual info you transmit over your carrier’s network. In the former case, reducing your data usage could let you move to a cheaper level of service. In the latter, every megabyte you save will directly lower your monthly bill.
