>U.S. Cellular Offering Free Device Workshop in New Bern


Customers get hands-on experience learning about basic smartphone features and how to customize their device to fit their lifestyle

Not all smartphone customers are the same. They each use their devices in different ways to enhance and simplify their lives and there are endless personalization options to let them customize it to fit their lifestyle. For smartphone customers or wireless customers thinking about making the switch to a smartphone, U.S. Cellular (NYSE: USM) will offer a free Device Workshop on Saturday, April 14 at 9 a.m. at 3180 Martin Luther King Blvd. in New Bern and will guide attendees through all of the features and functions of their devices and how to customize them for their lives. All questions are welcome from current and potential smartphone users, and attendees don’t have to be a U.S. Cellular customer.

U.S. Cellular associates will help attendees learn about and maximize all the features on their Android™-powered, Windows® Phone and BlackBerry® devices, and it’s open to everyone.

“With constant access to your e-mails, social media sites, helpful apps and the Internet, you can stay connected and organized with a smartphone, no matter where your busy life takes you,” said Blake Whaley, store manager for U.S. Cellular in New Bern. “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. Our unique benefits are one of the reasons we have the happiest customers in wireless.”

Android devices, like U.S. Cellular’s Samsung Galaxy S® II that features several customizable options, enable the customer to transform a smartphone with a range of features that can be modified to their liking. Customers can tailor the Samsung Galaxy S® II’s seven homescreens to be just one touch away from their e-mails, social networks and favorite webpages and applications. You can also enjoy watching high-quality movies, TV shows and videos on this device.

From the look and feel to the sights and sounds, there are a variety of ways to customize an Android-powered device.
