                                     Things to Do
The following are safe practices when using your mobile device:
  • DO give your number out only to people you know and trust.
  • DO use caller id to block names and numbers of individuals you do not want to contact you.
  • DO set a PIN number (alpha/numeric if possible) to unlock the screen and turn on the
    option to reset the phone to factory settings if the PIN number is missed too many times.
  • DO delete e-mails that contain UA confidential or internal use only information.
  • If your phone is lost or stolen, report it to your local police station and your network
    operator immediately.
  • Think about how a text message might be read before you send it.
  • Treat your mobile like you treat your wallet or purse. Don’t let it get too far
    away from you, especially in public.
