Android Phone Basics
You know it's not an iPhone, but the letters making up the name of your new phone are fairly meaningless. That's OK! A smartphone or android is easy to work with once you understand the basics. We will cover basic settings, email, creating and updating contacts, camera and photos, and time permitting, downloading apps, music and games. (1 session)
