Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

Q. What if I already have another phone plan?
A. Faculty who currently have another plan under Verizon have the option of transferring their phone number to the iPhone or keeping the new number that came under the AT&T plan.

Q. Which iPhone will I be receiving?
A. All faculty will receive an iPhone 4S.  The iPhone 4S is a GSM cell phone with a high-resolution display, FaceTime video calling, HD video recording, a 8-megapixel camera, Siri and more.

Q. What if I already have an iPhone (UMDNJ/Personal)?
A. If you currently have a UMDNJ iPhone 4, you may be eligible for an upgrade to an iPhone 4S.  If you currently have a personal iPhone, you have the option of transferring your number to the UMDNJ iPhone.  However, you may incur cancellation costs depending on the terms of your AT&T or Verizon contract.  Please make sure to see if you are part of a family share plan as well.

Q. Is there a discount through the school that could be used towards the personal purchase of an iPhone?
A. Yes. AT&T offers RWJMS faculty and staff a discount of 15% on the service plan for personally purchased iPhones.

Q. What if I want a Blackberry, Droid, or other phone?
A. The only smart phones available for purchase through RWJMS funds are iPhones. The RWJMS Office of Information Technology has identified the iPhone as the best choice for RWJMS students, faculty, and staff as evident by the billions of applications downloaded to date and the robust development platform.

Q. How do I get an iPhone?
A. For faculty that are identified by the RWJMG as Patient Keeper users, the iPhone has already been procured and will be provided to you soon (you will need to attend training). For faculty that are not Patient Keeper users, fill out the Cellular Phone and Accessory Request Form to begin the procurement process.
