Mobile Video Phones-Do's and Dont's


DO handle it with care.  It’s a small and sensitive device.  A simple drop can break it if it lands in the wrong spot.

DO keep your hands clean when using it.  Oil from your hands can cause the touch screen to be less sensitive.  You can get a plastic overlay to protect the screen.  Dr. Z uses one himself — it does the job but you have a screen that is not as pretty as one without–but protection is sometimes more important than beauty.

DO walk 50 feet from the spot where you do not have coverage.  Sometimes you get a much better signal by just moving away from your current spot.  Video on mobile phones require a good and strong signal to be able to do video communication.


DO NOT use your mobile videophone while driving!!!

DO NOT get your mobile videphone wet!  Water is fatal to electronic devices.  If it happens, use a hair dryer as soon as possible but do not burn your phone with the heat from the hair dryer.

DO NOT move your phone while communicating–it makes the other party or the video interpreter get seasick!

Dr. Z cares about your communication access.

Disclosure: Dr. Z is a employee with CSDVRS, currently its Vice-President of Marketing.
