3 MOBILE CONTRACTS
3.1 Immervox mobile contracts are flexible enough to meet the most obscure requirements both now and mid contract. From ruggedised devices, to shared International roaming bundles.
3.2 For most businesses the need for Mobility is essential to their productivity and the work/life balance of their staff. This means that as well as the Sales team that get a mobile each, virtually every staff member having a mobile will benefit your organisation.
3.3 Internally, staff can still be contacted in meetings and check and update emails. Even giving users a back-up Internet connection in the event of fault in the office. With 4G access in an increasing geographic area, you can be sure that staff can work effectively inside and outside the office.
3.4 Externally, your fleet, Sales team, homeworkers, Managers, Directors and staff can keep in touch and keep your office up to date.
3.5 Immervox Mobile contracts can be a combination of basic, high spec and existing devices including iPhone and Blackberry, with contract lengths ranging from 1-60 months. For 1-10000 users. With the ability to get new numbers or port your existing ones. Each user can even have different roaming and calling accessibility to meet their needs and the Business’s requirements.
3.6 We manage your whole mobile solution, as an MVNO (Mobile Virtual Network Operator) we manage and invoice your Mobiles directly whilst still giving you access to supreme coverage. Vodafone are our network of choice with 449 million mobile customers globally and 99% 4G population coverage. EE & O2 may also be part of the solution should coverage ever prevent us using Vodafone.
3.7 Adding bolt-ons, ceasing services and upgrades are all handled by Immervox (applicable to product variants whereby you sign a mobile contract with Immervox and not the mobile network directly). We hope not, but should you ever experience a lost or stolen phone, our 24/7 out of hour’s team will be there to support you.
4 MOBILE BROADBAND
4.1 There is a constant need now to be connected to the Internet not only personally but for Business too. The expectation is that even if you are out of the office you will still be picking up and replying to emails, as it’s much more productive.
4.2 Mobile Broadband is the term used to describe a High speed Internet connection that uses Mobile signal instead of a physical fixed line connection such as ADSL or FTTC. The obvious advantage to this being it’s mobility, and for Business this can save on trips to the office, missed/delayed contact with clients and in turn, better Customer Service. In addition, you have flexibility to choose from various contract lengths, data bundles and access hardware.
4.3 For the Remote worker who needs constant, fast Internet access at home, on the laptop with clients and in the car, MiFi devices that provide a wireless Hotspot for up to 10 devices work well. MiFi Devices are great for temporary sites with no lines and even remote sites where there is no traditional Internet connection available at all. Also some conference facilities just don’t have suitable Internet access, this allows you to take your connection with you.
4.4 For your Sales team who only need connectivity for their laptop when doing presentations, a USB dongle provides the Mobile Broadband access they need to win the deal and the business control of the Data usage.
4.5 With 4G access this is a great backup to your existing Internet connection. In the event of an Outage, it can be Business as usual and our Technical consultants can advise on practical ways to achieve a seamless transition to mobile or secondary services in the event of a Fault.
4.6 Vodafone are our Network of choice with 449 million mobile customers globally and 99% 4G population coverage. Contracts can vary from 1- 60 months with a variety of data packages available to meet your requirements along with different hardware to meet your needs.
4.7 We manage your whole mobile solution, as an MVNO (Mobile Virtual Network Operator) we manage and invoice your Mobiles contracts directly whilst still giving you access to supreme coverage. Adding bolt-on’s, ceasing services and upgrades are all handled by Immervox (applicable to product variants whereby you sign a mobile contract with Immervox and not the mobile network directly). We hope not, but should you ever experience a lost or stolen device with Mobile Broadband, our 24/7 out of hour’s team will be there to support you.
5 SIM ONLY
5.1 Immervox Sim Only contracts are flexible enough to meet the most obscure requirements both now and mid contract. Where You have no need for a Hardware Fund, our Technical consultants would be happy to discuss your Business’s needs with you.
5.2 Internally, you may already have a BYOD and Mobile Policy so staff can still use their own mobiles in the office. Part of that policy could offer staff a mobile contract that can be used on their existing mobile giving you better control over the practical application of that policy. With 4G access in an increasing geographic area, you can be sure that staff can work effectively inside and outside of the office.
5.3 Externally, your fleet, Sales team, homeworkers, Managers, Directors and staff can keep in touch and keep your office up to date and with 1 month contracts available, you can keep your contracts Co-Terminus no matter how often you need to add new contracts especially where you have a high staff turnover.
5.4 M2M (machine to machine) is taking great strides recently with the control of your home’s heating and hot water, tracking your car’s location, mileage and fuel efficiency. The opportunities for business are huge. Our Technical consultants can assist you with creative and intelligent ways to use mobile SIMs.
5.5 Immervox SIM Only contracts range from 1-60 months. For 1-10000 users, with the ability to get new numbers or port your existing ones.

4 WHAT WE WILL PROVIDE FOR YOU A PHONE NUMBER AND SIM
4.1 We will open an account for you and provide you with a SIM and a phone number (and we may agree to provide you with additional SIMs and phone numbers on your request).

You are being allowed to use the SIM by us on a limited licence to enable you to access Services, in accordance with the terms of this agreement. We or they may recall the SIM(s) at any time for upgrades, modifications, misuse or when your agreement ends. You can only use our SIM to obtain Services from us.
4.2 Each SIM may only be used in Handsets which are enabled for Services and are authorised by us for Connection to our network. Any attempt to use the SIM in other Handsets may result in serious damage to the Handset and may prevent you from being able to use it, including the making of emergency calls. In these instances, we, our network provider, or its MNO, are not responsible for any such damage or usage problems.

You must contact us if you want your Handset to be unlocked from our network. If you contact us to request that your Handset be unlocked from our network, we will arrange for your Handset to be unlocked in an authorised manner (which may include replacing your Handset with an unlocked Handset, which is the same or similar specification to your Handset) and you must pay an unlocking administration charge. In addition, you must ensure that there are no outstanding amounts owing on your account. Prior to us arranging for your Handset to be unlocked, you must ensure that you back-up or otherwise store separately any of your information or other data on the Handset which you may require, as this may be lost during the Handset unlocking process.

This clause will not apply to you if you have purchased your SIM on a SIM-only basis.
