CMU Faculty, Staff, and Students

The following steps should be completed to set up cellular services with CMU:

  1. Transfer your existing phone number(s) to CMU's corporate account.
  2. Request a new phone number(s), if you are not maintaining a current one.
  3. ​Complete a Subscriber Agreement.

Cellular services may be set up in the following ways:

  • Request a new device with a new phone number
  • Request a transfer of your personal phone number(s) to CMU's corporate account. Transfers are commonly known as:
    • Transfer of Liability (TOL)
    • Assumption of Liability (AOL)
  • Request a transfer of your personal phone number(s) from one carrier to another carrier on CMU's corporate account. These are known as ports.

Transfer your existing phone number(s) to CMU's corporate account

Complete one of the following set of steps, depending on whether you choose to keep the same carrier (transfer), or change carriers (port).


  1. Call your carrier and have the phone number separated from any shared plan. You will want to confirm that the remaining lines have an appropriate plan set up. This step will need to be completed by the personal account owner.
  2. ​Verify that you have a CMU Cellular Services eligible device.
  3. ​​Complete the appropriate transfer paperwork based on your carrier.


  1. Verify that your phone number is eligible to port to your selected carrier.
  2. Call your carrier to verify if you will be charged an early termination fee for porting your number to a new carrier.
  3. Complete the port form, and submit to the Cellular Services office.

Request a new phone number(s), if you are not maintaining a current one.

Additional paperwork is not needed to request a new phone number. You will need to include your area code preference on the Subscriber Agreement.
