A Droid For The Ladies

A new look for Android arrived at our stores a few days ago and its name was Rhyme. HTC has released a new phone to add to the Droid line-up which is was created with women in mind. This doesn’t just mean that it was created in an attractive color (which it was) but, it comes with some outstanding accessories that can be valued at $30 on their own.

Of course HTC packed their new phone with a superfast processor and amazing camera capabilities but, the real jaw-dropper is the boost of functionality that comes with the device via the accessories. Most phones come with just a charging source and an instruction booklet. HTC Rhyme comes with three very unique tools to help you get the most out of your new phone.

  • Tangle-Free Headphones

Listen to your favorite tunes without the worry of wires getting knotted together so your wasting time untangling them before you even get to listen to your music tracks.

  • Charm

Not only does the phone have its own style but, there is a brand new accessory called the “Charm” that is included. This handy and fashonable tool is a small lighted cube that you plug into the headphone jack in your phone. Simply drop your HTC Rhyme into your purse as you usually would and clip the Charm around the strap. When you get a phone call or message,  the cube will blink. You now have visual confirmation of a notification that is discreet and makes it so you don’t have to have the phone out to recognize incoming information.  HTC even recommends using the reenforced cord to pull your phone from your purse so you no longer have to miss calls searching for your phone buried in your bag.

  • Multipurpose Docking Station

Set your phone on this sleek dock and get even more functionality. Your HTC Rhyme will charge while also creating an alarm clock setup to help you keep tabs on events and let you wake up to your favorite songs. Discreet, built-in speakers help you to play your music at any time with great sound quality. Another item that is included to give you the best experience with less hassle. No cords into the phone and less for you to have to struggle with.

HTC has created the ultimate phone for women who like to stay connected and have the latest and most convenient accessories, not only available, but included! This is absolutely the one-stop purchase for the girl-on-the-go.

For more information or to see the new HTC Rhyme stop into any of our four locations in Ellington, Enfield, Vernon or Stafford.

New Upgrade Policy

So there have been plenty of rumors circulating lately regarding the changes to Verizon Wireless’s upgrade policy. To clear them up I would like to explain what will now be in effect for the Verizon customers.

Every Verizon customer will still have an upgrade 20 months into their contract. You do not have to wait until your contract is fully expired to get a new device.

Previously, primary lines on Family Plans and/or lines billing out at over $59.99 would receive annual upgrades after the first year of their contract. These will no longer be available. The only upgrade option will be at the 20 month point.

These same lines also had the option of waiting until the 20 months into their contract. If they upgraded after that time, they would receive  a New Every Two credit toward their device. The NE2 amounts were either $30 or $50. These credits will no longer be available.

The plan took effect on January 16th. If you had upgraded before this date you will still have your annual upgrade or NE2 available to you. If you had these items available to use on your account and you hadn’t taken advantage of them, please check with one of the stores as to how long you have to use the upgrades, becuase their is a expiration on the offers.

However, our phones are always offered at great pricing and we can try to make a great deal with you for a new device when you are upgrading. Every line on the account will still receive an upgrade, it may just be at a different time than previously used.

If you have any other questions or concerns regarding this policy change, please stop into one of our locations in Enfield, Ellington, Vernon or Stafford Connecticut.

Verizon Gets iPhone

So for everyone who’s been holding their breath for the iPhone to come to Verizon Wireless, you can now exhale.

Ready? Ok. It is official, Verizon will soon be carrying the infamous Apple smartphone. Express Wireless is unsure as to what date will start sales of the product in our locations. To be very honest, most of the team has vowed that we would rather carry our Droids than the new product if you want to know why you can see refer to the previous posting “Love the Droid Drop the iPhone” from us comparing the devices.

For more information stop by one of our stores in Enfield, Ellington, Vernon, or Stafford Connecticut. You can also call our location at 1-800-444-2899.
