Cell Phone Can Be A Huge Help For College Students

Apr 8, 2008
As a college student, you know how valuable your cell phone is to keep in touch with family and friends, especially if you are in another town. What you may not know is that your cell phone has various other functions that can help you to enjoy your college experience.

As a college student, you may ask your parents to send you money from time to time. Your parents can send you money through your text messaging system. The money is withdrawn from a PayPal account that your parents will need to set up. Once your parents send you the money, you can send the funds directly to someone else, such as your school bookstore for fees that are past due.

Have you ever been stranded somewhere with your keys locked inside your vehicle? Some models of cell phones can transmit your remote key signal. It's relatively easy to do. You should use your cell phone to call the person who has your spare remote keys, although you must call them on another cell phone. You then tell the person to hold your press "unlock" into their phone. You hold your phone within a foot of your car door at the same time. The signal that is coming through can unlock your door. This may not work for all keys and phones. You might to check it out before you really need to use it.

You can also use your cell phone to get directions to any destination that you may be heading. Goggle Mobile Web can give you detailed instructions as well as satellite photos and maps. This is also a nice feature to have if you get lost. Goggle can show you the way home.

Your cell phone also has features that can aid you in your studies. Reminders and alarms are good tools to use when you need to be reminded to attend a study group or to make that important meeting with your professor. The reminders calendar can also be used to remind you when that next term paper is due as you can set these reminders months in advance.

Most cell phones also come equipped with a three-way calling feature. This feature can aid if you have group project due and you never seem to be able to meet with your partners. To place a three-way call, you first call one friend and after you have made a connection, dial the second friend's number and press send. This will allow the second party to answer while the first one is holding. When the second party is on the line, press send again to reconnect to the first party. Now you can all communicate as if you are in the same room.

These are just a few of the features that can aid you while you are in college. You should read the manual for your phone to discover some other features that may be helpful to you.
