Besides withdrawing and transferring money, you can also buy airtimes and this can come in handle during the evening period of the day.
3. Flash Drive: Lastly, it’s important you have your flash or an external hard drive. Well, you apparently have a Smartphone that can save files much you want. Unfortunately, not every uses a smart phone or an android. Some files can be so large and you don’t want to be in a position where you have to go through the stress of having to return. It is usually safer with a flash or an external hard drive because the truth is with a hard drive you get more space and you’re hardly limited.
