Obtaining an LJMU mobile phone

Obtaining an LJMU mobile phone

LJMU mobile phones must be approved by a Dean or Pro Vice Chancellor in accordance with the mobile phone policy http://www.ljmu.ac.uk/ithelp/policies/118767.htm.

The University’s preferred mobile phone provider is EE, and procurement should be through IT Services. Phones should be selected from the EE Public Sector Device Guide and will be put on the EE Public Sector All Inclusive Tariff.

Public Sector All Inclusive Tariff

The All Inclusive Tariff is based upon the average usage of mobile phones on the contract and includes call calls to Landlines, EE and Orange mobiles, numbers with the prefix 0845, 0870, 0800, voicemail and other mobile networks. Texts messages are also currently free.

The minimum term of the contract is 2 years.

Data Usage

Most smart phones can browse the internet, synchronize email and calendars over WiFi. When you are not connected to a WiFi network, data is transmitted over the mobile phone network which is chargeable. It is recommended therefore that all smartphone contracts include a data bundle. Some phones are capable of using the faster 4G network services, and there is an additional cost of you wish to take advantage of this.

Usage abroad

If travelling abroad, please be aware that significant costs can be incurred, particularly for mobile data usage. Bundles can be added to your contract for short periods to cover your time abroad, which will help manage costs. The bundles available vary depending on which country you are visiting, please contact IT Services for advice.

Insurance                    £1.50 - £6/month (dependent on the cost of the phone)
