Bring Your Own Device smartphone support

Mount Royal has made available to staff the choice of obtaining connectivity to personal smartphones. Up until recently, the typical supported smartphone choices were the Apple iPhone and select BlackBerry models. Clients, who are being reimbursed for their Mount Royal usage, may be wondering what level of support is currently available for them. IT Services continues to support and provides guides for connectivity for iPhones and Blackberry devices. Please be aware that support for Android devices is provided on a best efforts basis. Due to the nature of Android smartphone OS development, a connectivity guide cannot be provided for every iteration of manufacturer supplied Android OS version.
