C Spire Wireless Hosts Free Android Smartphone Personalization Workshops


For New Smartphone Users Or Those With Questions; In-Store Sessions Have Plenty of Answers

Ridgeland, Miss. (January 30, 2012) – C Spire Wireless, the only U.S. wireless provider that offers personalized wireless services, today announced plans to conduct a series of free smartphone personalization workshops over the next two weeks in 8 cities across three states to help consumers learn more about their advanced devices.

With nearly 55 percent of its customer base using smartphones, well ahead of the U.S. average of 43 percent, C Spire wants to ensure that existing, new and prospective Android smartphone users have ready access and answers to all of their questions on how to personalize the devices to fit their lifestyle.

The free, one-hour sessions are open to new and current Android smartphone owners as well as those interested in upgrading to one of the advanced devices. Attendees do not have to be C Spire Wireless customers. The sessions will be led by specially-trained C Spire data and engagement specialists who are knowledgeable about the Android mobile operating system and will cover a comprehensive range of topics, including email access, mobile web browsing, calendar synchronization, apps, photos, music, maps and more.

“We believe it’s important to provide personalized smartphone learning workshops to help current and prospective customers learn how to get the most out of these advanced devices,” said Jim Richmond, director of Corporate Communications for C Spire Wireless. “Our expert data specialists are passionate about helping consumers learn how to make these devices an even more integral part of their personal and professional lives.”
