Is Pokémon Go eating your monthly data allotment?

SureCall Cellular Signal Boosters Can Help.

As Pokémon Go, the number one downloaded and top grossing game in the U.S., continues to grow in popularity, one thing people need to be aware of is their monthly data allowance. While the game itself doesn’t take a lot of cellular data, it’s addictive nature is adding additional hours of data usage to the average player’s cell phone bill. While consumers are aware of these additional hours of usage many players aren’t aware that playing Pokemon Go in an area with a weak cellular signal can contribute to this additional cellular data usage.

What can you do to avoid additional data charges? 

    – Play the game in areas where you are covered by a Wi-Fi network.

    – Pokémon Go uses Google Maps to access world-data for your smartphone which uses your data connection. Download Google Maps for offline use.

Not only does Pokémon Go affect your monthly data allowance it also drains the battery life of your phone.  There are a few things you can do to save your battery:

    – Within the Pokémon Go app, tap on the “Setting” button on the top-right hand corner of the screen, scroll down and tap on “Battery Saver”. Doing this will allow you to turn your phone upside down which will dim the screen.

    – Turn off sound effects, music and vibration on your cell phone.

    – Playing Pokémon Go in an area with a strong cellular connection doesn’t make your phone work as hard to maintain a consistent data connection.
