Mobile telephones information

The University's preferred supplier is O2.

The transference (or porting) of personal/private numbers to/from the University mobile contracts is not permitted

Neither is it permitted to purchase a private mobile telephone and claim back the cost or call charges on expenses.

As well as very competitive tariffs, we receive a discount (minimum £50) towards the cost of a new or upgraded handset out-with the 3-year contract period.

To proceed with a purchase, please complete the online order form Once authorised by the cost centre authoriser and ordered from our supplier the mobile will be delivered to the telephone office. After receipt the handset will be asset tagged and added to our records and you will be contacted to arrange an appointment for setup.

Staff who use a University contracted mobile telephone are reminded that use of such hand held devices whilst driving is illegal and will now attract a £200 fine and 6 penalty points.
Your case could also go to court and you could be disqualified from driving and get a maximum fine of £1,000.

If called, whilst driving, and it is safe to do so, pull over at the next convenient stopping point, switch off your engine, and take the call. If you do not wish to take a call whilst driving either switch off the hand held mobile or divert to voicemail before you start your journey.
