Departments may contact Verizon to set up cell phone service or utilize the Verizon My Business portal at the link shown above. All charges associated with initiating service, including cell phone costs are billed directly to departments. When setting up service departments will need to include “ISU” in the account name, i.e. “ John Doe, ISU” or “Physics #3, ISU”. Including ISU in the account name allows easier access to University paid service and assists Purchasing in resolving any service issues that may occur.

This contract is open to all Regents institutions.

Special Considerations

University paid cell phone service is not intended for personal use. All personal calls must be reimbursed to the University. Consult the Controller’s Department web site for more information at Communication Technology Allowance Policy and Reimbursement Procedures.
