Simple Cell Tips, Part 3: Protect Your Phone From Damage

A recent study by the Pew Research Center, claims that in 2007, 81 percent of the U.S. population owned a cell phone, which is a 20 percent increase compared to 2002. With that in mind I've started a series of Simple, No Brainer Cell Tips that will help you better use your celly and keep it working for longer.

The only thing worse than getting scratches all over your shiny new cell phone is actually breaking it or drowning it to the point of no repair. It can be a pain searching for the right cover, but mom was right: It's better to be safe than sorry. Protect your phone from rain, scratches and toilet water by putting a case, sleeve or protective skin on it.

I like colorful and fun cases, but I use BodyGuardz's clear film for my iPhone. After spending $600 on the device, the BodyGuardz is certainly worth the $24.95 and is slim enough that I can barely tell it's on the phone.
