How to use and take care of your cell phone on vacation

Peru is a country with many stories behind it that bring with them a mysticism that envelops its visitors. While visiting Peru it is important to keep your cell phone in optimal conditions. Smartphones can become allies of our days off: they help us to record shared moments, connect with friends and discover new places in the chosen destination. 

While you are traveling to Peru you may need to keep communication. That’s why you may need to use one of our mobile phone plans for tourists to avoid high roaming costs. In order to make a nice trip here in PeruSIM, we will show you how to use and take care of your cell phone on vacation.

Protect your cell phone

Do not forget to protect your phone from sand and excessive heat with a case, and it is important that the sun does not hit it directly so that it does not overheat.

Also be careful not to get any creams or sunscreens on it. If this happens, immediately remove the battery and dry it with absorbent paper or a clean towel. It is essential to protect it from water: if the device gets wet, disassemble it and let it dry for 24 hours before reassembling it.

Take care of the battery


Make sure you leave with a fully charged battery and, if the trip is long, it is useful to carry a portable charger.

The geolocation system is widely used at this time of the year to reach the chosen destinations. However, GPS is one of the most battery-consuming functions, so it is necessary to activate this option only when it is really necessary.

An alternative for Roaming services: 

Activating the roaming service may involve a number of charges that are not necessarily mandatory. At PeruSIM we offer a practical solution to this: prepaid mobile plans for tourists. This way you will be able to access a sim card with a Peru number, calls, data and some unlimited applications.

You can also deactivate them from time to time, when you don\’t have wifi and you don\’t want to use Roaming so much (it all depends on how you use your phone and the amount of data you use in your daily life). Beware of excessive use of Google Maps on vacation, for example, which consumes a lot of data.

Choose your favorite movies/series:

To avoid overspending and depending on the connection on vacation, you should download before the trip (for example, on Netflix) the series and/or movies you have pending to watch. You can download them using wifi, and watch them later while you travel.

Choose your favorite music:

As with series and movies, download before traveling the music you want to listen to (for example, in Spotify) during your vacations, so you can take it everywhere. Add a good Bluetooth speaker and that\’s it.

Bring accessories with you:


Remember that accessories such as portable chargers, selfie sticks, headphones or others can help you enhance your smartphone experience while on the road. Always remember that trips can be quite long so having some of these accessories can be essential if an emergency occurs.

Now that you know these tips for using and taking care of your cell phone while traveling you can enjoy Peru much more. Visiting Peru can be an experience that you can complement with your smartphone, as well as share your travel experiences.

Finally, we know that you have to keep communication with your relatives and friends, that you need to be able to orient yourself in new cities, that you might need help with translation and that you might need to search for restaurants or hotels. That’s why with PeruSIM you can buy a SIM card including the data plan of your need without having to worry about high roaming costs.
