Unicel invites anyone who is 50 years and older to come to Phone School 101 to learn the basic functions of cell phones. Unicel is sponsoring this event as an answer to a public cry for help.
There is no fee for the class and attendees do not need to be Unicel customers.
A brief session will cover the basics including how to turn the phone on, adjusting ringer settings, saving phone numbers in the contact list and more.
After the short presentation, Unicel representatives will be on hand to work one-to-one with those who have further questions.
This event will be held on Tuesday, July 1 at the Unicel Community Conference Center located at the Maritime Museum in Alexandria.
Sessions will be held at 8:30 a.m., 10:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. and the public is welcome to attend. No pre-registration is required.
