A smartphone or tablet is aimed to make your life easier but not everyone has the time to learn how to use their device to its full potential. To address this, U.S. Cellular is offering a free Device Workshop 9-10 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 16,  at 403 Wilson St. in Brewer and 8-9 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 23, at 33 Mid Mall Boulevard in Bangor, where current or potential smartphone users can learn more about the features, tips and tricks of their specific device. At the workshop, U.S. Cellular associates will offer attendees hands-on assistance to get the most out of the features on their Android™-powered, Windows™ Phone and BlackBerry® devices, such as the 4G LTE Samsung Galaxy S® III™.

“Your phone can simplify and enhance your life, which is why U.S. Cellular provides a high-speed nationwide network and the latest phones and tablets. Ensuring every customer knows how to get the most out of their device is just one of the ways we provide the best customer experience,” said Matt Kasper, director of sales for U.S. Cellular in New England. “From offering unique benefits like Overage Protection and a valuable rewards program that recognizes loyalty, we treat every customer like a neighbor, not a number.”

The latest Android™-powered, Windows™ Phone and BlackBerry® options offered by U.S. Cellular enable customers to transform a smartphone to a device that meets their exact needs. The Samsung Galaxy S® III™ allows customers to enjoy faster web browsing and quick app downloads with access to 4G LTE speeds that are up to 10 times faster than 3G.

The workshop is open to everyone. Please call U.S. Cellular in Brewer at 207-989-3291 or Bangor at 207-942-5218 to RSVP.
