There is no 'strategy' for this game. You cannot really be 'good' or 'bad' at it. The story walkthrough will contain all solutions to the puzzles but there are a few things I'd like to mention:

There are 2 endings to this game, Not one.

The game has a lot of files you can download to the phone, mp3 files and photos. Downloading one of each file unlocks two achievements.

The main missable achievement in the game is 'Bookworm' as it doesn't say how to get it and it is not necessarily part of the story. This will be covered on the story walkthrough.

Like I said, this game has no real tips or tricks to it so this page is near useless. Onto the story.

Here we are, at the story walkthrough and the spoiler warning is here:

This walkthrough reveals all solutions to the puzzles in the game and contains spoilers about the games true ending, which you may want to obtain without use of a walkthrough. If you are stuck at any point, reference this walkthrough, but beware of spoilers.

Thank you. You can actually pick up a missable achievement and the first ending immediately. When you first open the game, you have to press any button to start. You will see a home screen of the phone you are going through and towards the middle of the screen is a 'Settings'. Upon opening this up you will be presented with the option to 'Erase all data'. Do this before progressing at all to obtain:

Now play the game again, but this time we are actually going to be going for the story achievements as well as the other misc achievements. The aim of this game is to go through the phone to find clues as to who the owner was. The first place to do this is messages and there is another missable achievement you can pick up really quickly. Go to the text messages with Sam's father and locate the button on the right that is an arrow. This jumps you instantly to the top/bottom of the conversation. Use this shortcut 10 times to obtain:

Now, we need internet access. The clue to Melren's WiFi password is in the text messages. Not able to find anything? Well, Sam reveals that Melren's WiFi password is actually in the weather app, the zip code shown at the top of your screen when you enter the weather app. Enter the code shown, which is always the same. You will gain access to Sam's emails and unlock:

The next objective is to find the Sam-Thing Lovbirds password. It is revealed in the emails that Sam attaches a lot of importance to dates of events in his life. Think of a date many people use as a code - its their birthdays, right? Well that's correct, Sam's lovbirds password is the date of his birthday. You can go look for the exact date yourself if you want, but I'll reveal now the code is 0131, for the 31st of January. You will unlock:
