This is an interesting idea that I received in a news release from U.S. Cellular this week, especially if you are trying to figure out how to work your smart phone of the Android, Windows 7 or BlackBerry kind:
“Smartphone and mobile tablet users are invited to learn more about how to use their devices
“With a recent study showing a nearly 80 percent increase in smartphone shipments from a year ago, there are plenty of first-time smartphone users who may want a little help figuring out everything their advanced devices have to offer.
“U.S. Cellular is hosting a free device workshop from 9 to 11 a.m. Saturday at its story at 6406 N May Avenue to guide attendees through all of the features and functions of the company’s smartphone and mobile tablet line-up, including the Android-powered Motorola ELECTRIFY, HTC 7 Pro Windows Phone and BlackBerry Torch 9850. All questions are welcome from current and potential smartphone and tablet users, and attendees don’t have to be a U.S. Cellular customer.
“’Smartphones keep customers connected and organized on-the-go by making it easy to stay on top of schedules and keep in touch with the people and information that is important to them,’” said Tommy Arens, director of sales for U.S. Cellular in Oklahoma.
“Device workshops are helpful for anyone who wants to make sure they are getting the most out of their handsets. Associates will answer questions and demonstrate common features such as e-mail access, web browsing, calendar synchronization, browsing for apps and how the device can be personalized to fit their lifestyles. Attendees can also learn about U.S. Cellular’s free Battery Swap and Overage Protection programs as well as its high-speed nationwide network.”
