How do I approach and protect myself from big companies?

I have an idea for a feature on a smartphones or cell phones.  I do not know how to approach or protect myself from big companies.  I don`t know if I can create a patent on the idea or not. I simply want to explain the feature, find interest and collect royalties.
I don’t know how much it is worth to companies, and once I show them what how do I stop them from using the idea? Or say they were already working on it?
I also don’t have a ton of money to hire attorney’s/get patents, is their a company I can trust to partner with to run this up the flag pole with?
