Oglethorpe University has negotiated special pricing for our
students, faculty and staff through AT&T for their wireless and mobile needs. The recommended hardware for accessing e-mail, calendar as well as text and voice is the Apple iPhone and Microsoft Windows Mobile (Version 5.0 and above) powered devices. While other devices may work on the Oglethorpe network, our network has been optimized for the iPhone and Windows Mobile. Further, IT Services is unable to assist with other devices.
Apple iPhones are available with the Oglethorpe discount at your local AT&T retailer or online through the links below. If you go to the AT&T store, please bring your PetrelPass (Oglethorpe ID) with you to get the discount.
Windows Mobile based devices are also available at AT&T as well as other cell phone providers.
Finally, for which cellular services and devices that DO NOT work well on campus, check the FAQ page on the topic or contact IT Services.
