Getting ready to sell your used cell phone? Our slogan here at TheBlueDot is “forever evolving”, which is exactly what our website has been doing this past year. We have meetings almost weekly on how to improve the trade in page’s design as well as how to implement the same elements into the main website. There was one thing we noticed around the time of the iPhone 5′s release, an increase in Apple iPhone trade in requests. So, launching officially just a few days ago, we made it even easier for you to trade in your used iPhone cell phone!
With Microsoft releasing surface and Windows 8 in the next coming months more and more info has been spilling out to give customers an idea of what they are in for. SmartGlass, if you’re unaware, is an “app” that will connect all your digital devices together even if it’s a refurbished cell phone. So they will feel more like limbs of a single device, as oppose to devices connected via bluetooth. The idea goes along with Windows 8 new metro design that will be across all windows device. Such as their phones, tablets, PC and even the Xbox (which was updated today with a quasi Windows 8 look). But what is the first SmartGlass app to surface this coming year?
So the launch of iPhone 5 has come and gone. More than a week has passed and now that everyone has had time to fiddle with the new iPhone there is more of an idea of what everyone is dealing with. Ultimately everyone wants to know what you get with the 5 that you don’t get with the 4s, and if it is ultimately worth the upgrade. It all really depends on what iPhone you actually have.
I love acronyms, don’t you? They make everything sound so technical and make you sound smart in general conversation. Well, here’s another one for you, NFC. My very first article here at TheBlueDot was about Google Wallet using NFC for credit card transactions. That didn’t amount to much at the time since only a couple phones had the technology to use it. But now, later this year, almost every new smart phone will have NFC, including the iPhone 5. So what is NFC, how will it be used, and is it even worth your interest?
If you are in the habit of buying the latest phone, you may want to look into the used and refurbished cell phone market. Verizon released the full details of what plans will be available June 28th and for all those customers with Unlimited data that will eventually be forced off, unless they buy used cell phones. The new plans are… confusing at best and expensive at worst. It seems everyone gets a kick in the wallet once this new plan kicks in, and shared plans are the ones getting the biggest hit. Below are the confusing details.
