From health and fitness to adjusting budgets and expenditures, January is the season for smart changes. It sometimes can be tough to stay on track when setting new goals, but smartphones and devices will help you create and keep New Year’s resolutions.

U.S. Cellular associates will help smartphone users get set up for success during a free Device Workshop in Machesney Park. Attendees will learn how to use their devices, such as fitness trackers, tablets and the iPhone X or Samsung Galaxy Note8, to monitor their 2018 resolutions. Guests do not need to be U.S. Cellular customers to attend.

“Our associates are always available to assist anyone with questions,” said John Heimsch for U.S. Cellular in N. Illinois. “The free Device Workshops are a great opportunity to learn the best tips to enhance and simplify life through technology. Our high-quality network with national coverage keeps users connected as they tackle new goals in the New Year.”

The free Device Workshop will be held on Jan. 20 from 8 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. at the U.S. Cellular store in Machesney Park, located at 1516 West Lane Road. You may call 815-633-2210 for more information or to RSVP.
