  • Disputes about mobile devices and bags can only be resolved upon your presentation of a return receipt.

What's loaded?

  • A variety of research and productivity tools.
  • You can also access your email and the Internet.
  • Any data you download on the device is not permanent, so save your data on a thumb drive or online
