There are an estimated 5.1 billion unique mobile users in the world in 2019 – some use smartphones, some use tablets and some use both. If you are reading this, you are most likely one of them…AMIRITE?
The best thing about smart devices is that we can change the settings to suit our individual usage patterns to ensure optimal usability and SPACETALK is no different.
The question is have you changed the settings on your child’s device yet? No? That’s OK, we are here to help… #TEAMSPACETALK have come up with suggestions that will ensure optimal usability, increased safety and longer battery power.
Location, location, location…
Start by setting your location updates to 1 hour in the All My Tribe (AMT) app settings. Setting location updates to hourly means that your SPACETALK will still tell you where your child is but isn’t constantly searching for GPS satellites, WiFi or cell towers to update you on your child’s location. It allows you to know your child is safe but also to increase battery life.
For peace of mind on your child’s whereabouts in between the hourly location updates, you can activate the Location on Demand feature in the AMT app. Simply open the AllMyTribe app and select the radar icon on the map and VOILA!
Nobody puts Tommy in the corner…
To prevent in-class distractions and to ensure little Tommy’s teacher isn’t making calls home, you can setup and enable School Mode.
This feature allows you to make any potentially distracting features inactive during user-specified timeframes, such as the period between recess and lunch or lunch and the end of school, or both.
Charge me up buttercup…
Don’t forget to charge SPACETALK every night. Several of our customers suggest setting cute alarms for your child, reminding them to put their watch on the charging dock. We all need a recharge sometimes, don’t we?
Check your SIM provider
#TEAMSPACETALK recommend using the Telstra network or a Telstra supported SIM, such as Belong, AldiMobile or LycaMobile.
Why Telstra network you ask?
The Telstra network covers 99.3% of the Australian population, so we built your SPACETALK device to specifically tune to Telstra’s Australia-wide 3G network on both the 850Mhz and 2100Mhz mobile frequencies. Non-Telstra SIM cards will cause patchy and unreliable coverage and the lack of good signal strength means SPACETALK will have to work harder to maintain a connection.
Finally, don’t forget to switch off Lift to Wake in your SPACETALK’s settings.
Happy SPACETALK optimising everyone… You’re welcome! 😊
