Mobile device workshops offered
Since surveys show mobile devices — including tablets and smartphones — top Christmas wish lists, U.S. Cellular is hosting free one-hour workshops for anyone interested in learning how to maximize features on Android-powered, Windows Phone and BlackBerry devices, including using a free app to connect to Wi-Fi hot spots, setting up email or syncing multiple accounts, and sending pictures. Workshops will be at 9 a.m. Saturday at stores at 9200 S Pennsylvania and 627 12th Ave. NE, Norman; 5 p.m. Dec. 6 at 7000 Northwest Expressway, Suite A; 9 a.m. Dec. 7 at 6310 SW 3; 9 a.m. Dec. 15 at 6406 N May and 101 N Douglas Blvd., Suite J, Midwest City. Tommy Arens, director of sales in Oklahoma, said U.S. Cellular offers unique wireless benefits, including no new contract after the first and an exclusive points-based rewards program. “You can use your points for faster phone upgrades and free ringtones, which a lot of customers take advantage of this time of year,” he said. U.S. Cellular provides a tailored customer experience for buying a phone as a gift and activating it later by calling a Customer Care associate, even on Christmas Day, Arens said.
