Event Description

It’s that time of the year when kids head back to school. It’s also a time when many students receive more responsibility.

Students may face the responsibility of receiving their first cellphone – a subject many parents are anxious to tackle. The most appropriate age that a child should be given a cellphone, how much screen time should be allowed and what are some tips for smartphone usage are questions that families may have when they purchase that first phone for their children.

U.S. Cellular associates in Coralville will host a free Device Workshop, where they can help you navigate the uncertainty of buying your child’s first cellphone. The workshop is open to everyone. You do not need to be a U.S. Cellular customer to attend.

“Purchasing a cellphone is never a task that should be taken lightly, but getting one for your child is even more important,” said Mike Adams, U.S. Cellular’s director of sales for Iowa and Nebraska. “Our tech experts are here to provide tips to help you figure out if your child is ready for their own phone. Many parents say safety is a main reason they want to get their kids a cellphone, so we also have a strong network to ensure you can reach them when and where you need.”

Please call 319-341-6050 for more information.
