    Yea, I got the same thing today. Where are you located? I'm in Northern VA. Wondering if it's geographic or possibly in preparation for Froyo.

    Or maybe it's because they've caught up on all the backups so they know more people have the Inc now.

    P.S. I got mine day before release.

    Yes, If you're on this forum for more than 5 minutes you already know more than they are allowed to teach you in that class...

    I'm in central Virginia, so you might be right! I've had mine about 3 weeks, my first smartphone.

    I got this email today, too!

    And... I'm in Northern VA! So maybe it is just our area?

    Definitely sounds like it could be a Virginia thing.

    I doubt I would learn anything new, but it would be interesting to see what they plan to show everyone.

    When I first got the phone in April I went to the local Verizon store for a free lesson on the phone.
    Nothing special and I learned more here on the forums.

    Read it again, they probably want you to show them how to use it.

    I'd go just to converse with fellow owners and cousins and show off Froyo, oh yes, I have it and you don't.

    Not a bad plan actually. It would be fun to get 5 different responses from 5 different Verizon people all at once :D

    The last time I was in a Verizon store I stood there listening to an employee try to explain to a customer the features. After about 3 minutes I began to get a headache. I decided to end my pain (and the customers!) and butt in. At least one person got some decent service that day :)

    I acutally been to one just to see what it was about and because I was just in the store at the time, and the only thing that was oh ok maybe it was good I did go was that I got a booklet of quite a few apps and which ones are the "hottest" but otherwise it was the basic for people like the old lady across from me who just got a Droid X and when told of the apps said "What is a app?" and when told to just wait a few she turned stomin normin and demanded to know what they were and that dragged the class on...

    It would be fun to go and contradict the mass amount of false information they'll probably provide.

    And to stand up front playing with root only apps. :D

    That class is for people who arent sure how to use their phone at all. People who dont know how to change sound settings, or who dont know how to move icons (old people). Most stores do the class once a month on a sunday before the class opens.

    thats the link if you want to see.

    You'll be there ("old") yourself, one of these days! Don't ridicule older people who want to learn new things, young 'un.

    They're already quite a bit older, and long gone from here...check the date of the post to which you replied. As a senior citizen (technically - I can get a discount some places ;)) myself, I sympathize, but honestly, Verizon would have been the last place I'd go to learn about Android...
