    Smartphone Workshop

    I received a text message from VZW about taking part in an on-line Android Smartphone workkshop (free). Has anyone else received a similar message? I was curious if this were a random invitation or if everyone received it.

    Nothing here, be wary and check the source before doing anything

    I received a text from VZW today - but it was indicating my bill was available on-line for me to view...

    I did notice the last time I was in the local store, they had flyers for a "smartphone" workshop...but you had to call and reserve your spot...

    It is from VZW for sure. I am going to take a look at the workshop tomorrow but I will bet that I've already learned more from this forum than I will from a VZW workshop. I also bet they continue to push task killers. I will let you know.

    I got it too. If it was an in-store workshop and not online, I would say they were just trying to get a look at the phones and see who's rooted and tethering for free.

    I figured if it were in a store it would be to promote things that cost money - they would have to get a hold of my phone to tell if it was rooted (and that ain't gonna happen).
    The text says they will offer advice on extending battery life and useful apps. As I said in an earlier post I doubt that they will have anything new that I haven't already learned from the people on this forum.

    My apologies I stand corrected, hopefully someone attends and let's us know how to get our phones in perfect working order the Verizon way.

    LOL - I'm going to log in over lunch and I will let you know what gems they have to offer. Maybe they will tell me how to use Advanced Task Killer (said with a sarcastic tone).
