Sequim I.T. hosts cell smartphone basics class

More than 60 people attended a free Samsung Smartphone Basics class held at Shipley Center last month. The class was taught by Sequim I.T. employees, with donations going to Shipley Center programming.

The presentation covered a variety of smartphone basics, including how and when to charge your phone, how to text and call, using wi-fi versus data, downloading apps and more.

Patrons reported that this class helped them feel more confident using their smartphones, Sequim I.T. representatives said.

Sequim I.T. is a computer services company in downtown Sequim specializing in providing professional IT services to businesses along with teaching public IT workshops.

“This is the second smartphone basics class we taught at Shipley Center and have laved presenting each time,” Jessie Crook, Sequim I.T. administrator and workshop co-presenter, said. “We enjoy helping people familiarize themselves with their technology. Smartphones have so much potential but if you don’t know how to use them, you can’t enjoy them.”

Sequim I.T., at 136 S. Second Ave., offers various group and one-on-one classes. Call 360-504-3272 for more information.
