HOW ARE you going to keep your mobile phone up and running if Hurricane Sandy hits us with a wallop?
Gizmo Guy has suggestions to help get you through the worst of the storm.
First, prep your phone for hardship duty. Fully run that battery down - watching videos does that job quickest - then recharge the battery.
While charging, venture into the settings and shut off all the "polling" features - Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Navigation - buzzing in the background, sucking juice. Also shut down any apps running in the background.
