HUNTSVILLE, AL — When the month of June rolls around, people across the country face the inevitable dilemma - what gift to buy for dad on Father's Day? This year, Verizon Wireless is making the decision a little easier by offering in-store demonstrations of the latest in wireless technology and equipment, June 15, from 2 - 4 p.m., at the West Huntsville store located at 6275 University Drive.

"Verizon Wireless Demo Days offer customers a variety of options for Father's Day," Jim Davis, Verizon Wireless' district-retail manager for Northern Alabama, said. "Whether you're interested in upgrading your dad's phone or introducing him to wireless technology by giving him his first phone, we've got something for everyone."

A Verizon Wireless data specialist and a Kyocera representative will be on hand to demonstrate the latest in voice and data products and services. Customers will be able to see demonstrations of technologies such as Mobile Web, which enables customers to access the Internet via a wireless phone; and Mobile Messenger, which allows customers to send text messages by wireless phone.

Employees will also be on hand to demonstrate the uses of newest phone models, including the BREW™-enabled (Binary Runtime Environment for Wireless™) handsets from QUALCOMM.

"BREW phones make great gifts for busy dads on-the-go," said Davis. "For example, BREW phones allow customers to use BREW applications to track business-related expenses while traveling, as well as download games and ring tones, shop or send photos during free time."

The West Huntsville location will host WEUP-FM radio for a live remote during the Demo Days activities. We will also have a drawing for a Kyocera 3035e. The store will offer up to 30 percent off accessories and Kyocera 3035e phones for $29.99 (after mail-in rebate). Customers may also take advantage of a waived activation fee with a two-year service agreement, as well as the popular unlimited nights and weekends options on local, national and family plans.
