Mobile Devices

CUIT offers configuration support and assistance for iPhones and some Android devices. We recommend wireless service from AT&T and Verizon Wireless.

The CUIT Security team strongly recommends that you update your Apple mobile devices (any device using iOS) to version 9.3.5 as soon as possible. On your device, to check the version or update, touch Settings>General>Software Update.

Please note: The iPhone 7 is scheduled to be released by Apple on September 16. Orders for these devices can be placed through CUIT after September 23, however delivery might be delayed depending on vendor availability.

Columbia-Provided Mobile Devices

This warranty does not cover problems resulting from misuse, accident, modification or other improper use of the equipment. Devices in like-new condition may be returned within five business days of purchase; a $50 restocking fee will be charged, and any missing accessories will be charged at the current prices.

Many phone vendors give mobile phone discounts to individuals who work at the University. For details, visit the HR discounts page.
