Check out the locations below if you are interrested in attending.


Pittsburgh – 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.
The Verizon Wireless Communications Stores located at the following addresses are hosting ongoing Wireless Workshops, including several Apple iPhone4 workshops over the next week, to help customers get answers to their questions and become more savvy about new technology:
