Telephone and Email Logistics
International students occasionally complain that they cannot get a cell phone without a social security number. But there is at least one service that will provide a cell phone without a social security number.
AT&T at 734 SW 3rd Avenue in downtown Portland sells “Go Phones.” TEL: 503-228-2675. Here are the details:
“Go Phones” are pre-paid. You buy the phone (phone prices start at $90 and go up) and you can add time to the phone via the phone, the computer or by stopping by AT&T.
To get a phone, visit the AT&T store at 734 SW 3rd Avenue. You will need to take with you the following:
- Cash, check or debit card to purchase the phone.
- An active credit card.
- Your L&C ID card.
- Your campus telephone number.
- Your campus address.
E-mail is an important means of communication on the Lewis & Clark campus. You should have opened a Lewis & Clark e-mail account via the internet before you arrived at L&C. You must check your L&C email account everyday.
To open your e-mail account, go to: http://www.lclark.edu/information_technology/information_systems/accounts/create/
Enter your L&C ID# (seven digits); click on “student,” enter your birthdate, enter your last name, and click on “submit.”
Remember that you need to check your Lewis & Clark e-mail everyday. If you have a favorite e-mail account (e.g. hotmail, yahoo, etc.), you can easily forward your L&C e-mail to it. This will make checking your e-mail easier and it will help to insure that you will not miss an important message from your professor or the ISS Office.
To forward your Lewis & Clark email, go to: http://www.lclark.edu/information_technology/information_systems/accounts/vacation_forward/
Type in your Lewis & Clark e-mail login. (Example: bdwhite). Make sure that the login is correct and that it is not capitalized. Then simply type in the complete address of your favorite e-mail account. Your e-mail will be forwarded.
