Workshop To Give Smartphone Safety Tips

To ensure smartphones are safe on summer trips, U.S. Cellular is offering a free Device Workshop on Saturday at 8 a.m.

As summer heats up, people are planning vacations and cooling off with water-related destinations. Whether headed to the beach for a week, the lake for a weekend or a “staycation” at a water park, it’s important to keep your wireless device safe.

According to a recent U.S. Cellular survey, 68 percent of smartphone owners have used their phones to assist with traveling.

“We want the Farmville community to know how to protect their devices while enjoying summer fun,” said Jack Brundige, director of sales for U.S. Cellular in Mid-South. “You will learn how to keep your device safe and dry, so your summer outings can be worry-free. Wherever the summer takes you, the U.S. Cellular 4G LTE network has you covered at home and across the country.”

The workshop is open to everyone, and you don’t have to be a U.S. Cellular customer to attend. Please call (434) 315-8722  to RSVP to the Device Workshop.
