Faculty and staff are given different options regarding non-working, used, or old cellular devices purchased through ITS Cellular Services.

Please be sure to remove any data and passwords tied to the device.


What to do with Non-Working, Used, or Old University-Issued Cellular Devices

If the cell phone still has service on it, a Disconnect-Request must be submitted to end the service and to stop billing the department.

Note

ITS no longer accepts non-working, old, or used cellular devices. Please see the options below. 

If the device is in good condition:

  • You can reissue it to another employee needing cellular service to perform their work duties.  
  • You can keep the device as a spare in case your current device stops working.

If the device is non-working, outdated, or no longer needed:

  1. Please be sure to remove any data and passwords tied to the device.
  2. Contact the Inventory Control Office at inventorycontrol@uconn.edu to arrange a pickup. University-purchased cellular devices are subject to the same surplusing requirements as all other University-owned property.
