Backup! Backup some more! And some more! 
 
We're talking backup today. 
 
When was the last time you backed up, saved, and protected? We all know how important it is to back up our work computer but do we do the same for our mobile devices? 
 
Have you saved those all important holiday photos? Your phone address book? The documents from emails you deleted months ago? The passwords for accounts you forgot how to access? All your favourite tunes? 
No we're not talking about Bic Biro versus Parker fountain pen, we're talking about your choice of mobile phone.  
 
Does it even matter what handset you have? Well, probably not if you are only using your handset for text messages and phone calls, but if your phone has become everything from pocket diary to email and document viewer, from camera to sat nav, and from holiday booker to video and game hook-up, then you have to a device that fits your needs.  
It's all change in the world of mobile phones. First for the good news... we've just seen the big Apple release, and the Samsung Note 9 which was released not long before that. But you may not know that all the networks are now bringing in a spend cap for their business customers. 
 
Plus, any customers upgrading or connecting a new line will now be required to decide how much they would like to set a cap at. You might ask why or what I'm on about? The reason is more simple than it sounds. Some customers are getting a shock when they discover their bill has a massive overspend after they have been on holiday, have rung too many premium numbers and sent lots of picture messages - all those extras not included in your tariff, the ones in the small print. 
Apple have announced their new kit, and I have to admit it's not what I was expecting.  
 
The September release showcased three new mobile handsets and a watch. And just to make life really confusing they are all called an iPhone X - the XR, XS and XS Max! 
 
Let's have a quick look at the new handsets. 
With apps using more and more data, do you really know how much data you are using? Or when you are nearing your limit?  
 
If you're like some of our customers - and you have a thing for looking up the answers to all those burning questions while you're on the move, or if you just like to watch movies on the go, or to regularly stream your music - you might need to know your data usage. 
 
Well, it's easier than you might think to find out. And the best news, you don't need another app to do it! 
Samsung have done it again. The new S9 and S9+ are a little bit of amazing. 
 
On first impressions you might be forgiven for mistaking it for the S8 and S8+. That would be because they use the same basic frame for both phones. The new model though is definitely more hard-wearing, making it harder to break and scuff. 
 
The real feature to look out for though is the impressive new dual aperture camera. This means you can take photos in really low light levels. 
 
And with the fingerprint sensor next to the camera on the back you can open the phone really quickly. 
EE have just announced that their business tariffs are changing. This won't affect existing customers until they come to upgrade. 
 
So what can you expect to see? 
 
The prices may have increased slightly but don't worry, you'll get more data for your money too. The tariffs you'll expect to see are 250MB, 500MB, 1GB, 2GB, 5GB, 10GB, 15GB and 30GB. Perhaps not the range of data packages we are used to but there is a lot more flexibility on pricing, making it even easier to choose whether you want a free handset or a really low monthly cost. 
If you haven't noticed an increase in your monthly mobile phone bill, you will soon. 
 
All the networks announced it was time to hike the prices up in line with inflation - otherwise known as RPI increases - and sent out letters to all their customers notifying them of the changes. 
 
There haven't been any increases for a while, which makes this one hurt so much and feel so unexpected. 
 
EE were the first to make the announcement some weeks ago but O2 and Vodafone followed suit shortly afterwards. EE and Vodafone's increase for Business customers is 4.1%, O2's increase is 4%. This will affect all bills from the 30th of March. 
Here's how to make the most of it. 
 
Upon updating your iPhone's operating system to the all-new iOS 11.1, you may have noticed a few subtle changes here and there, but not much more than that. Although the overall appearance of your phone and apps may not appear to be too different, there are loads of little changes that are now on your handset to make things faster and easier - and to make sure you don't miss out on them, we've put together a quick break-down of what's what! You can thank us later.
