BASKING RIDGE, NJ — A new smartphone can do a lot and it may often mean new questions: How do I make sure my battery doesn’t run out during the day? Can I create a text message by speaking into my phone? What’s an “app”? With more than 30 million smartphone customers on its network, Verizon Wireless is making sure smartphone customers – new and experienced – don’t have to look far for answers to any and all questions with free Wireless Workshops, available at participating Verizon Wireless Communications Stores and online.

To see what some customers had to say about their Wireless Workshop, see “What I Learned at the Verizon Wireless Workshop,” available on the Verizon WirelessTV YouTube™ channel and in the Verizon Wireless Multimedia Library.

Verizon Wireless Workshops offer a comprehensive look at what smartphones and other “smart” devices, such as tablets, can do. The in-store workshops are led by specially trained data experts and sales representatives and run between one and two hours in length. Verizon Wireless offers many of the same workshops online in English as well as some in Spanish on-demand at www.verizonwireless.com/workshops.

Customers interested in attending a Wireless Workshop can register online at www.verizonwireless.com/workshops or visit a nearby Verizon Wireless Communications Store for more information.

Customers can also attend live online Q&A sessions where Verizon Wireless representatives answer participants’ questions about devices and operating systems. A list of upcoming online Q&A sessions is available on the Wireless Workshops website.
