In this post I will be talking about ways in which you can make your Android phone data subscription last longer, I remember talking with a friend of mine about the days of blackberry.
How it was to use a 1000 subscription for the whole month not only to browse but download as you like, but today in the era of Android you can’t do such because this smartphones can take a 1000 subscription in matter of minutes,
Without taking much of your time let’s get down to the business of the day, because I know how it feels to get a notification from network provider that your subscription is about to finish just a day or two after subscribing
