Being spontaneous

Weekends are about mobility. Armed with your smartphone, you can text, video, jam, chat, groove, ping, play, call, email, update, surf, party, and connect all at once. So when the night is really active and you’re mobile, here’s a short list of what you can do and when you can best do it.

Text is best

Texting is by far the most forgiving app for spotty network connections, such as when going in and out of clubs or when driving in rural areas. You can text someone even when there is no connection, and whenever you encounter an active area, the Messaging app will send the text. Texting works over the voice network, not the data network.

Bluetooth is yes

You can send pics via Bluetooth to your friends at a party, or club, without affecting incoming calls text messages, or email.


When shooting video, incoming calls will interrupt the video with the new call screen. Whether you ignore the call, or answer it, the recording of the video will stop. Turn your phone off before shooting those must-have videos.
