We’re welcoming a new WSB sponsor today, Sound Advice in The Junction, where you’ll find Gary Larkin (shown above with a huge historic photo of “Downtown West Seattle”). As is WSB custom, new sponsors get to tell you about themselves; here’s what Sound Advice has to say: We at Sound Advice have been following the West Seattle Blog for quite a while when we noticed a number of our customers were posting some very flattering comments about us (which we were very appreciative of). Sound Advice has been in The Junction for ten years and has local West Seattle ownership, so we are vested in the local community. Actually, we were the very first Verizon agent in the area back in the mid-1980s (then known as US West New Vector), so we have loads of experience in the wireless business. Sound Advice has always handled Verizon along with a couple of other carriers, but a couple of years ago we decided to go back to our roots and become an exclusive Verizon agent, since being exclusive allowed us to match the Verizon direct pricing and programs.
Our expertise is in Smartphones, setting up e-mail, and computer-related issues with wireless equipment. We will have 4G launch shortly — that will allow us to have wireless data speeds of 10 to 12 mps, which is faster than most cable modems. We also carry a wide variety of Droids, BlackBerries, other PDAâ€™s, and just regular everyday phones. We have the ability to copy contacts from one phone to another and we can do 98% of what can be done at the bigger mall wireless stores, but with much less waiting on most days. Stop by and check us out! Sound Advice is at 4702 California SW (map), online at soundadvicecellular.com, or call 206-932-4247.
