When the Temperatures Drop Below Freezing, Make Sure Your Phone Can Weather the Cold
NASHVILLE, Tenn., Dec. 4, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- When outdoor temperatures drop below freezing your phone can be at risk. Asurion, the global leader in helping people unlock the potential of technology, wants to make sure your phone stays working smoothly all winter long.

"Phones are the remote control to our lives, from capturing photos of your child's first snowman to looking up icy road conditions. So, it's important to keep them running smoothly in the cold temperatures," said Bettie Colombo, Asurion Senior Director of Corporate Communications. "Our experts have some tips to help winterize your phone and prevent phone damage, so your phone is there when you need it."
