Irvine, CA — You have the latest all-in-one wireless device from Verizon Wireless. Now you want to learn how to use it most effectively. The solution? Free, hands-on training.

Verizon Wireless is offering workshops at several of its Communications Stores in southern California for users of smartphones and advanced devices like the LG Dare™.

The workshops are designed to better acquaint smartphone owners with the capabilities of their advanced devices and provide hands-on instruction on how to use the features they find most helpful.

Topics covered

Attendees can learn about a variety of topics, including how to:

  • Text message
  • Set up your speed-dial
  • Synch with your address book
  • Send e-mail
  • Browse the Internet

How to participate

Registration is not required. The event is open to Verizon Wireless customers and other smartphone users. Customers who do not yet have an advanced device but would like to learn more about these devices are also welcome to attend.

The workshops are part of Verizon Wireless’ extensive suite of in-store services for users of advanced devices, including small business customers with up to 50 lines of service.
