Use of Portable Wireless Devices

Invoices will be paid by IS&S Central Administration.  Itemized statements are available on the AT&T web site to department liaisons, who are responsible for reviewing the statements and communicating with device users in their respective departments.

Employees must immediately repay their department for usage charges incurred due to personal calls, text messages or other services.

Employees should avoid the unsafe practice of talking on a mobile phone while operating a motor vehicle.

How to Request Wireless Service

Portable wireless voice and/or data service must be requested per College policy and requires specific approval of the responsible area Department Head and Vice President. Complete the request form and either scan it and e-mail to Help_Desk@berea.edu or bring it to the IS&S Technology Resource Center or send it to IS&S at CPO 2208. IS&S will notify you when your equipment arrives.

Employees may not make changes to wireless service through direct contact with the service provider. Available service plans will be revised as deemed appropriate by IS&S and as negotiated by the Purchasing Department with the provider.  Changes to plans and features will be made by IS&S Central Administration.
