UW BlackBerry™ Service for Faculty and Staff

A BlackBerry is a “true wireless handheld device;” a phone which allows you access to your Outlook email, address book, calendar, notes and tasks thru a direct wireless synchronization to the university’s email system from Verizon’s nationwide service.


  • Handheld device allows you to have a PDA, wireless email, wireless Internet and cell phone service all in one device.
  • Stay connected no matter where you are – designed just like a cell phone, you stay connected while you travel.
  • No computer connection is needed for synchronization, the device is “truly wireless.”
  • Easy access to the Campus Global Address Book
  • Convenient (you can be on the phone, reading an email or making a calendar appointment all at the same time), user-friendly and an effective way to organize your information.
