Mobile Phone Procurement
Please note that these pages are currently being updated - please get in touch with your departments Daily Contact with any queries (Daily Contacts please get in touch with the MSO team)
IT Services are currently in the process of finalising the new university’s sole supplier for Mobile Telephones and Data Services, following the decision to move to a single supplier in 2017. Once appointed comms will be circulated to each departments 'daily contact' and to the wider University.
In the interim please refer the below tabs for information on who your departments 'daily contact' is; what to do if you have an issue with your current contract or phone; how to order a new connection; etc.
Everything you need to know about switching providers...
How do I switch my current number to the new provider?
Only current numbers which are 'out of contract' will be transferred to the new provider once finalised, any remaining numbers will be moved as and when their current contract ends. The process of switching all current numbers over to the new provider will be facilitated by each departments 'Daily Contact' and the Management Support Office (MSO) within IT Services.
Information for Daily Contacts regarding moving:
The MSO team in IT Services will contact all daily contacts with full instructions when it is time to move your department over to our new provider. If you have any questions in the meantime please contact the MSO team via email (email@example.com)
- IT Services will now be responsible for any bills under the new provider.* Departments remain responsible for any numbers which remain under the original suppliers/contracts until those numbers are out of contract and transferred to the new agreement. (*contracts as part of Research Projects will be recharged to the research budget code each month)
- Handsets will still be purchased from Dept/School budget - Our recommended supplier is Academia and a full list of preferred models is available on request.
