AT&T offers cold weather mobile device care

Published On: Jan 24 2013 04:40:30 PM CST

When it comes to protecting ourselves when cold weather strikes, many of us grab our coats, gloves and scarves.

But what about your mobile devices? We've learned exposing your smartphones, tablets and notebooks to extreme cold temperatures can cause many problems including drained batteries, brittle glass, and condensation.

AT&T has a few tips to protect your devices. First, don't take your device out in extreme temperatures -- keep it bundled up.

Also, don't leave your phone in the car.

Use a Bluetooth headset so you don't have to pull out your phone to answer it.

Finally, warm up your phone before you use it.
