One day, my nine-year-old nephew handed a blue paper bag over to me. A small white notepad was stapled onto it saying that the package is for me. A prank what I initially thought it was. It was a black blue Nokia C3 cell phone, a hand-me-down from my youngest brother who recently acquired a post paid plan for his Blackberry unit. He knew that I am not particular with brand names and have got mobile units from different phone companies usually given by my other brothers. The only one I bought got stolen several years back.

Tips on how you can go green (with your Nokia phones):

Save Energy – You do not need to change your battery so often if you do the following (if available for your device):
  • Close application and data connection, for example, your Bluetooth connection, when not in use,
  • Decrease the brightness of the screen,
  • Set your device to enter power saver mode after  the minimum period of inactivity, if available in your device,
  • Deactivate unnecessary sounds such as keytones

Sweet Says... let's do whatever we can to help save the Earth from Global Warming, even if it's just charging your phone battery responsibly.
