Rental:

Telecommunications has cellular phones to rent on a daily/weekly basis (with a two week limit) to departments or other campus organizations who have C & I accounts. These units are portable and may be operated from the cigarette lighter of a vehicle or for short periods of time via the attached battery pack (talk time will decrease stand-by time).

Many areas in the State of Maine have cellular coverage, however, some areas in Northwestern
Maine and Washington/Hancock counties will have limited coverage. If you have questions
regarding cellular coverage on your expected route, please contact Lorelei at 581-1609.

Also, while the rented phone is in your possession you are responsible for its care. If it is
dropped, damaged or stolen, you will be charged the replacement cost.

The rental rates DO NOT include the costs for calls made. Actual charges for calls may take up to 60 days to appear on your bill. Rentals are scheduled on a first come first serve basis, so please schedule as many days in advance as possible.
