Have you been thinking about switching from your basic phone to a smart phone? Is the reason you haven't made the change due to having to learn a new device? We've have you covered! Not only will our sales staff assist you with the change and make sure you have a basic understanding when leaving the store (answer/declining calls, setting up your email, and how to text message), but we also offer workshops on site. This gives you an opportunity to learn about the basics of your new device in a calm environment with others who are also new to their device. There is always an opportunity to ask questions, and someone else may ask a questions and reveal something on your phone you never thought possible! The classes are available for both Apple and Android operating systems. Visit www.shockcitycellular.com/workshops for a list of dates and locations.
Imagine this. You’re packing for a hiking trip. You grab your camera, your radio, your compass, and your map. Then you go to pack your cell phone. You put it in a plastic bag and wrap a few socks around it to make sure it’s nice and safe and wont get wet or broken on your trip. What if you could have a phone that can replace all those items and withstand humidity, dust, water immersion and other elements? Meet the Casio Commando 4G LTE. This phone is built tough and meant to take a beating. Not only is it tough, but it has a nice 4 inch screen, 1.5 GHZ processor, 8MP camera and is running on the largest 4G LTE network. Pair all of this with the features of android 4.0 and you have yourself a well made, fast, durable, all in one device. Stop in to your local shock city store for more information!

With school out and the weather (hopefully) improving, farmer’s markets are in full swing. Local famer’s and artisans are coming together in one place to sell their delicious produce and handmade items. With today’s technology their business can thrive now more than ever.
Today’s preferred method of payment is credit cards. Previously, that would have hindered the ability to take payments at farmer’s markets. Now, smartphones paired with items like the square card reader it’s no longer a problem. Credit card payments can be taken on site and the sales can be tracked through the app.
Vendors who integrate applications into their business can also take advantage of inventory tracking and expense management all from one device.
Don’t forget about the Verizon MIFI card, which provides highspeed internet to computers and tablets anywhere with a Verizon signal.

Just two more days until the launch of the highly anticipated Galaxy S4. The Galaxy S3 proved itself as an amazing smart phone, so what makes the Galaxy S4 different? Let's start with the quad core processor; which not only makes the phone run smoother, but is also more able to handle applications and multitasking. The screen has also been increased to 5 inches of full HD. The picture is sharper and brighter as well as easier to see in sunlight compared to it's competitors. Improvements have been made to the camera increasing the megapixels to 13. Having zero lag time decreases the chance of blurred pictures and functions like Erase Mode will actually make distractions in the picture simply disappear. Add in the air gestures and there just isn't anything else like it on the market.
Want to try it for yourself? The phone will be available in stores Thursday May 23rd.
