Members of the Caribbean Community of Retired Persons (CCRP) Jamaica were recently given a session in the use smartphone technology by representatives from Digicel Jamaica, during the CCRP’s Annual General Meeting on Tuesday, April 29, 2014  at the Sts. Peter and Paul Parish Hall.

While some of the participants were not aware of a number of the features incorporated in the smartphone prior to the session, some were able to show off their skills by taking winning self-portraits (‘selfies’) for which they received awards.

The training session which was conducted by Digicel’s Data Doctor, Altonie Thomas, focused on the utilisation of data and how to make the best use of the internet and apps on smartphones. DigicelJamaica’s Public Relations Manager, Jacqueline Burrell-Clarke who attended the event expressed her company’s delight at being associated with the sessions. “We are aware that while many seniors are now using smartphones, most of them are not aware of the range of tools that are available on these phones, and how useful they can be, particularly to that age cohort. Technology is changing fast and it’s important that all our customers, regardless of their age, stay abreast of these changes and understand how to maximise their mobile internet experience on Digicel’s islandwide 4G Mobile network.” The company recently completed the expansion of its 4G Mobile network and now boasts 92% population coverage across Jamaica.

 Digicel Jamaica along with GraceKennedy Company Limited were the main sponsors of the event.
