By standardizing on Google Apps, Humboldt State University has made it easy for you to access University-related content on your smartphone. You can find a complete list of the phones Google supports at mobile.google.com.
Picking a phone is a personal choice. You may want a particular cellular carrier, a specific brand, a touch screen, or a certain shape that feels right in your hand. The customer service representative where you purchase your smartphone will be able to help you figure out if a phone works with Google Apps and configure your device to connect to Google Apps. Print this page and take it with you to help them.
Discounts: Most local carriers offer a discount to state employees on the price of the phone as well as the monthly fee. A staff ID or a pay stub will be sufficient to demonstrate your status as a state employee.
