MARION, NC — If you’re a Verizon Wireless customer who recently purchased an Android™ device, you’re thinking about purchasing one, or you just want to learn more about its features and functionality, your local Verizon Wireless Communications store is here to help.

Verizon Wireless and Mountain Lake Properties are teaming up to invite customers to the Android Workshop on March 24, 2011. The complimentary workshop will be held at The Crooked Door Coffee Shop on Main Street for customers’ convenience from 6:00p.m.– 8:00p.m.

Wireless technology evolves quickly, and often times, consumers can’t keep up fast enough to take advantage of the broad range of useful features available on their wireless devices. Verizon Wireless is dedicated to providing the best customer service possible and wants to help customers learn how to maximize the usefulness of their Android device, which can simplify their lives.

A demonstration on how to use Android devices will be followed by a Q&A segment when customers can ask specific questions about their devices. (Attendees are encouraged to bring their personal devices). The demonstration will include:

  • Setting up and using email
  • Syncing calendars and contact information
  • Browsing the web
  • Using navigation functions
  • Downloading and using popular apps
  • And much more

Keith Bradley, Broker for Mountain Lake Properties, recently attended an Android training session and had this to say: “I never realized the depth of functionality of my Android smartphone. After I took the class I wanted to be sure others in the Marion area had the same opportunity, so I approached the local Verizon store manager about co-hosting an additional class. This is a great opportunity and we hope Android users in Marion will take advantage of it.”
