17 Must-Know Habits of iPhone Super-Users That Save And Extend Battery Life

If you’re an iPhone 4 power user like me by the time lunch-time comes around, you start to get concerned about just how much longer you can last without an outlet and phone charger. . .

I recently found out that I can get access to a free WiFi hotspot roaming account just because I’m a Comcast customer — and so can you! In fact, through this largely unpromoted feature of Comcast Internet accounts, you already have it! There’s no need to turn anything on, upgrade or change anything on your account.
