I often call into IT Junction on a Wednesday Morning for general help with my laptop, the people are very friendly and can solve most of my problems, and I’ve had lots of things done:
Laptop speeded up
Tom Tom set up
Smart phone set up
Bank accounts on line
Flight tickets purchased
There are lots they can do….
If you don’t have a laptop or WI-FI, just use theirs…it’s free, it’s local and friendly
On Wednesday morning between 10am to 12 noon Sompting Big Local hosts an IT Junction in Cokeham Road.
Yesterday, having a computer program problem, I nipped into the IT Junction office where I was warmly welcome by your resident electronics experts Harry and John.
The problem was resolved by Harry who then explained exactly where I was going in layman’s terms which I actually understand. Even more importantly it was a free service. I was extremely grateful for all the help and advice received.
Whilst I was there I could not help but notice that a lady was being helped to configure her new mobile phone settings. I did not realise help with mobiles was on offer.
