Faculty and staff who need mobile communication in their work may be eligible to receive a cellular phone paid by their department under Sprint's program. Eligibility is determined by the unit's dean, director, or unit manager.
Phones Available through Sprint
Sprint offers many different models of phones that are Windows OS, Android OS, and now iPhones. Some that they offer do not work in our environment, therefore we test the phones before they are offered as an option. When you create the request with the Help Desk, someone from IT will contact you and provide you a list of the available phones.
The data plan and text plan on these phones are bundled with the voice plan. Minute plan options will be provided to you after you have decided on the phone model.
The Business Essentials plans are recommended. These plans pool their minutes. Therefore if you would go over on your minutes in a month, it would pull from the "bucket" of minutes. Therefore, the chance of you being charged an overage is rare. Options will be presented to you once the device is chosen.
