Mobile Computing FAQ
- I never received my uCentral serial number
We highly recommend that students purchase either the Apple iPod Touch as it is the device that we are best equipped to support, the one you choose depends on how much storage you want for media and other software, the required software takes up a small percentage of the iPod’s storage space. If you are interested in purchasing a different device, such as a SmartPhone, we recommend Apple iPhone, Android phones (Motorola Droid, Droid Incredible, etc. ), BlackBerry Pearl (8100 series)*, BlackBerry Curve (83002 series)*, BlackBerry Bold*, BlackBerry 8830 series*, BlackBerry Storm*, any SmartPhone running Google Android or any SmartPhone or PDA running Windows Mobile 6 with at least 32MB of RAM.
*Note: Your BlackBerry device will need data coverage unless it can connect to wi-fi networks and internet sites.
The fastest/easiest way is to e-mail them to your self. See: How to setup BuckeyeMail on the iPod touch/iPhone. Once setup, you can just go into your mail and tap on the attachment to view it.
Blackberry devices vary from model to model and carrier to carrier. You should consult your cell phone provider to get the most accurate information. Some devices come installed with a program called Documents to Go which will allow you to view most files. Other models you will need to convert documents to .txt files in order to view them.
