use all the bells and whistles or how to get
the most from their monthly minute plan,"
said John Magnani, director of the Falmouth

our membership last month, and it was a huge
success. We were very impressed with the
one-on-one instruction. I am pleased to hear
that AT&T is expanding the program to other
parts of the Cape."

mobile phones, regardless of which wireless
carrier they currently use. AT&T will also
have free "practice" phones on-site.

volume on your phone, to checking voice mail
to storing a number in the phone's address
