10 Smart Ways to Maximize Your Mobile Data

Because there's no need to spend extra.

Don’t let mobile data charges keep you from fully enjoying everything mobile surfing has to offer. Try these hacks to maximize your mobile data without having to spend extra.

1. Chat up a storm
Instead of using up all of your load, why don’t you chat with your friends and family on Facebook? It's a sure way to check up on your loved ones’ whereabouts, and you can actually talk to more people online.
