Purchasing a business phone

Organisational units and subunits of the University of Vienna are responsible for purchasing their employees' business phones. The ZID provides the SIM card, data packages and additional services. In addition, the ZID is in charge of tariffs, invoicing and support.

Selecting a retailer

Organisational units and subunits select the retailer of their choice when purchasing a business phone. For instance, this could be a retailer from which the unit has previously purchased other hardware.

When purchasing products on account, it is important to set a sufficiently late due date for payment. The ZID recommends a payment period of 30 days.

The retailer has to issue a complete VAT invoice including the correct invoice address and cost centre.

Recommended retailers

 Note

Some retailers operating in Austria (such as cyberport.at and alternate.at) issue the invoices for products ordered online as a German company. Such purchases can be tricky due to tax reasons (reverse charge system). However, if you have already made an order abroad, you do not have to cancel it.

Recommended mobile phones

The ZID recommends to consult the IT security team of the University of Vienna. You should only purchase mobile phones that are offered at attractive prices and that receive regular security updates.

In the experience of the ZID, expensive smartphones (Apple iPhone, Samsung Galaxy S9 series, Sony XZ series and others) offer regular security updates as well.

For further information about the relevance of security updates, please read our tips for smartphone and tablet users.
