U.S. Cellular offers free workshops

Summer is a great time to kick back and relax. According to a survey by U.S. Cellular, 78 percent of smartphone users will use their devices on vacation this year to keep in touch. As the summer heats up, U.S. Cellular will offer a free Device Workshop on Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. at the U.S. Cellular store located at 766 Beverly Pike in Elkins.

This event is for wireless customers looking to make the switch to a smartphone or tablet, or simply to upgrade their device. U.S. Cellular associates will help attendees get the most out of the features on their Android-powered, Windows Phone and BlackBerry devices, such as the Samsung Galaxy S4 and Samsung Galaxy Note II.

“Smartphones continue to be our go-to, all-in-one gadget,” said Dana Dorcas, director of sales for U.S. Cellular in the Mid-Atlantic. “Android-powered devices have access to nearly half a million apps along with digital movies, books and music. Customers who switch to U.S. Cellular join the only points-based rewards program in wireless and receive points that can be used towards faster phone upgrades, free phones, ringtones and accessories.”

The latest Android-powered, Windows Phone and BlackBerry options offered by U.S. Cellular enable customers to transform a smartphone to a device that works the way they need it to. The Samsung Galaxy S 4 allows customers to enjoy faster web browsing and quick app downloads with access to U.S. Cellular’s high-speed nationwide network.

The workshop is open to everyone. Please call 304-636-9311 for more information.
