We reviewed the Alcatel One Touch IDOL 3 smartphone last year and loved it. This year Alcatel has released a newer version – The Alcatel IDOL 4. We have been using the IDOL 4 on the Bell network and enjoyed some of the features in this phone.

Alcatel One Touch Idol 3 Smartphone on a Budget

If you are an Android phone user, and you are looking to upgrade to a phone that has new features you might like this fabulous new Alcatel One Touch Idol 3 Smartphone. I find the prices of modern phones sometimes become a barrier to even think of owning one. I like that we can own the Alcatel One Touch Idol 3 Smartphone for a reasonably price compared to the latest smartphones in the market.

Boxwave Accessories For My Nokia Lumia 920 Phone

I use my Nokia Lumia 920 phone a lot on the go, and always fear that it will drop because it is a little slippery without a case. To avoid it from falling or getting damaged it is important to have a good quality case and screen protector. After all a good phone is a good investment.

My #WindowsPhone Experience with the Nokia Lumia 920

I am participating in the Microsoft Canada #SummerSwitch 30-day challenge. I was given the Nokia Lumia 920  #windowsphone to explore and use it for my daily activities. I have fallen in love with this phone from the time I saw it because of its sleek, modern, innovative design. It is very comfortable to hold and handle. 
This phone is definitely impressive, as I have been having my family, friends and colleagues wanting to check it out and wanting the same for themselves.

Become TELUS WISE about Smartphone and Internet Safety

TELUS WISE stands for Wise Internet and Smartphone Education, which is an educational program about the Internet and Smartphone safety.  The content of TELUS WISE has been developed in partnership with MediaSmarts and other industry experts, as there is a steady growth of smartphone and Internet use by children and teens. As an organization, their motive is to keep our children safe from online criminal activity i.e. financial fraud and child predators.

This TELUS WISE free program is currently open to TELUS business customers, their employees and families. Hopefully it will be open to the public soon.  This program includes...
  • In-person training and seminars for parents and anyone wanting to learn how to keep children and teens safe when using the Internet.  These interactive seminars are one hour in length and led by certified TELUS team members at office location(s) across Canada. 
  • WISE virtual community offers a wealth of training, tips and tools on Internet and Smartphone safety.
During the December holidays many of you may have stumbled across a letter written by a mom to her 13 year old son that had 18 ground rules of using the cellphone. When I first read the letter, I thought that the letter was well written and thoughtfully said so children can understand it.  Here is a link to the ground rules letter that is re-blogged by TELUS.

Kanex Sydnee keeps our mobile devices tidy & charged

Kanex Sydnee helps my family and I stay organized with our mobile devices by keeping them in one place and most importantly charged!  Like many families in North America we too have ended up with a few mobile devices and own more than one per person.  Charging the iPads, iPods and phones have caused us to face a big clutter zone everyday when everything needs to be charged.

Stay connected with Samsung Galaxy Ace II x smartphone

TELUS has launched the Samsung Galaxy Ace II x smartphone just in time for the holidays.  This is a perfect starter device for teens, tweens and parents who want to stay connected with family and friends.   It has a stylish, slim design that I like :)  This phone is modeled after the Samsung Galaxy SIII and is lightweight and has a comfortable grip that fits wonderfully in the hand. 
The phone has got some lovely features such as:
The 4.0 screen is a brilliant display where the images pop out to show clarity, which I think is a perfect size to watch videos, movies and play games when we are in the go especially during the holidays.  We can access social media, use other apps, download books and more through the Google play store.
The 4GB memory is expandable to 32GB with a micro SD card that can store lots of data and pictures.  This phone has a 5MP camera that has a LED flash, I wasn't too happy about the quality of the pictures.
The speaker on the phone is pretty good; it is loud and great for listening to music.
I like the swipe down quick settings menu that gives us access to all the most frequently used controls.  
I like the battery life as it lasts for an entire day with normal use; browsing with data, talking and texting.
This phone is great overall, I would recommend a case as it may be slippery.
At TELUS, the price is at $29/ 3 year term with a minimum $50 monthly rate plan.
There are no activation fees because TELUS has got rid of these fees on their smartphones.
Unlimited talk and family share plans for new and renewing customers.
If you are thinking of getting a family member or friend a phone to stay connected then check out the Samsung Galaxy Ace IIX smartphone.

Nokia Lumia 610

The Nokia Lumia 610 is a sleek stylish smartphone that would be a good first device for young users.  This compact touch screen phone has 3.7” display screen.  It is powered by the Windows 7.5 operating system.  
This phone is simple to use, the icon has images and words that make it clear what it is for, so first time users can easily figure out how to use it without reading the manual :)  

I enjoyed the styled interface, theme setting i.e. dark/light background and the panel of colours that we can choose for the accent.    
The phone includes features such as 
  • Built in Microsoft Office that allows to edit word documents on the go.
  • Access to apps, xbox live games, amazon, twitter, foursquare etc
  • Built-in 5.0 MP back camera with LED flash
It is comfortable to hold and has a slightly rounded shape in the edges.  
I like the feature of snapping pictures without going to the app by just pressing the button on the side.  The camera takes decent pictures, however I wasn't very pleased with the quality of pictures and video when it is shared via email as it seemed a little washed out.  
While playing games, I didn't find it as smooth as other smartphones in the market.  

I liked the navigation interface, the calendar, messaging, email, web browsing and watching videos on the phone.  We can get needed support and information on the Nokia site i.e. how to setup the many features that the phone offers.
This Nokia Lumia 610 makes a lovely phone just in time for back to school.  If you are interested there are lots of payment plans available at Telus.
