    I was just at my Verizon when I noticed a flyer that had a date and time on it for people who own the Droid to attend a Invitation to learn more about it. I reserved my seat for this event that will be on the Thursday, April,22, 2010 from 7pm to 9pm. With the premission of the moderators of this site I would like to post what this invitation is about after I attend it. Basicly I am asking if it is ok for me to post what Verizon had to say at this invitation. I do not want to just post it and then get banned or porbation. I live in the Charleston, SC area and the invite is at"Verizon International Blvd Store. 5070 International Blvd Suite 131 North Charleston,SC 29481.:icon_ banana:

    He clearly missed a "2" being that the 22nd is on a Thursday and the 2nd was not. I was just being an ass.

    You had a typo and showed the date as the 2nd. No big deal :)

    I was unaware of that I am sorry. But thank you for correcting me, I did not want someone who did not get the flyer in this area not go or show up on the wrong date. I am hope that what I post atleast one person will benefit from it. All of you know so much about the Droid and I only want to share what little I know about it with everyone. This being my first smart phone. But thank you again for the correction and I did not think you were being an A$$:icon_ banana:

    Pretty sure the event you're going to is just an informational type thing for grandmas who just got their first smartphone from verizon. Don't expect anything that you wouldn't find in the phone's manual.

    I am sorry again. It is a big deal to me I only want the post to be correct. I gave out an incorrect date due to me not paying attention to detail. As soon as I noticed the repost of what I had done I corrected the matter. If I do something wrong please tell me. I have alot to learn from everyone here.

    By all means, please share what they say when you go. At the end of the day, they aren't going to give you information that will be earth shatteringly new, but for those of us that don't live in your area (and I'm not aware of a similar event where I live), it's nice to be up to date on what Verizon says about the device, officially. You haven't done anything wrong.

    :)

    Why dont you use your droid to record the whole session using the video camera. and then upload it to youtube for all of us?

    if i remember correctly, this was a seminar of how to use the phone.

    rather figure it out on my own and through this forum than going to one of those =p.

    You have nothing to be sorry for. Everyone here has made mistakes, and a couple of us have made two. :D These guys forget they were all new once, too. I think it would be great if you post what they teach you. Let us know!

    Basic Droid 101 is all that it is. I went to the one in Raleigh, NC on March 27th and it was basic stuff. I got my Droid on 3/7/10 and by the time the class rolled around, I had stumbled across everything they were talking about or learned of it here. I was great for my 13 year old son though since he had just got his the night before. I was appreciative that Verizon did offer it to new customers though.:icon_ banana:

    My wife just got her Droid last weekend (I've had mine about six months) and we went to a Verizon 'session' on Sunday morning. It was very informative! Contrary to your thought that it was "for Grandmas who just got their first smartphone", they divided the group(s) up and had someone talking to each group depending on what phone they had. While there was one elderly lady who was totally befuddled when she first got there, she walked out knowing all the necessary basics of her Droid. The rest of us actually DID find out some stuff we didn't already know. And, our guy was open to any and all questions we had. He actually knew what he was talking about (he was the store manager) and could answer all the questions put to him. They hold these 'classes' every two weeks, so we're going to go back to the next one if we have any questions we can't find answers to here on the forum. Maybe different Verizon stores hold different kinds of information classes, but I like what they're doing here in Carson City.
