I received my first cell-phone in high school and never could have imagined the transformation of cellphones and their impact on our lives. Do you remember the Nokia cellphone? That was my first phone and the only entertainment it provided was playing this game called 'Snake' and being able to receive and make calls. I can't even remember if I was able to text but after that phone, my next phone was a Kyocera, and just to explain how old it was - it came with an antenna that would extend. Hysterical. However, I do remember being able to text on that phone. And then there was the flip phone and I used different songs as my ring tone and even assigned ring tones to my friends so I would know who was calling. Next, I owned the infamous Blackberry which was so fun to use because you could exchange Blackberry pins with everyone. In between that time, there were a few Androids and then I switched to the iPhone. I've had so many phones which I'm sure we all have but reflecting on my collection really amazes me how much technology has advanced. I mean you can literally do everything from your cell-phone: video chat, take pictures, create documents, monitor your house when you're away and probably so much more that I'm not even aware of.
But what happens to the data that's stored on the phones such as text messages, videos, pictures and contacts? And remember many of the older phones existed before cloud management which enables you to back up your data. Yes - your phone can be a clutter magnet if it's overloaded with so much "stuff" and not properly maintained. When you use something everyday, you must be conscious to clean and maintain it just as you would your home. If you don't de-clutter your phone it's very possible to experience your phone moving at a slower speed or receiving an alert that there is a lack of storage space. So, here are a few things to de-clutter on your cellphone.
