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 workshop on Saturday, June 18, from 9:30 to 11 a.m. at its retail store located at 2010 Yakima Valley Highway, Suite 34 in Sunnyside to guide attendees through all of the features and functions of the company's Android-powered, Windows Phone and BlackBerry devices that can enhance their lives.
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 learn about U.S. Cellular's high-speed nationwide network, which say company officials has the highest call quality and network satisfaction of any national carrier. Local residents can also learn about the unique benefits of being a U.S. Cellular customer.
The device workshops are open to current smartphone owners, as well as those interested in upgrading to a smartphone. Attendees do not have to be a U.S. Cellular customer.
All smartphone accessories will be 25 percent off during the workshop.
An RSVP is not required, but is appreciated. Call 839-4882 to RSVP.
