Help Protect Your Mobile Electronics During Deep Freeze
MIAMI VALLEY -- As we endure some of the coldest temperatures ever in Ohio, AT&T wants to help you keep portable electronics safe and in good working order.
Exposing wireless devices to extreme cold temperatures for extended periods of time may:
Cause your battery to drain faster
With prolonged exposure, make the phones hardware more brittle and can lead to cracked screens, especially on devices with glass screens
Cause condensation to form inside your screen if you turn it on while it is still cold
Increase potential for permanent damage if you leave your device in sleep mode for an extended period of time, especially with netbooks.
Here are some tips for protecting your devices in extreme cold weather:
The biggest and most obvious dont take your device out in extreme temperatures. When youre outside in weather like this, keep it in your purse, bag or pocket. Keep it protected.
Dont leave it in your car or trunk for extended periods of time definitely not overnight, and if youre in and out of the car all day, dont leave wireless devices sitting in your car all day long.
Dont take your phone outside to shovel snow or go sledding with your kids because not only do you expose it to the cold, but you have the chance of getting it wet.
Keep your phone or device in a protective case. We recommend something like Lifeproof or OtterBox cases. These are waterproof, drop resistant and dirt proof.
Your phone isnt going to stop ringing just because its cold out, so if you expect to be out in the cold for a while and want to heed our advice about keeping it in your pocket, invest in a Bluetooth device/earbud with mic and call answer buttons so that you can leave the device in your pocket while talking.
If you know for some reason that you just have to expose your device to the cold for an extended period of time, turn it off and dont turn it back on until it has warmed up (this helps to keep condensation from forming.)
Finally, for protecting yourself if youre going to use your device outside or in cold temps, get yourself a pair of touchscreen gloves that allow you to keep the gloves on, while still being able to operate the touchscreen on your device.
