This is especially urgent if you are abroad and get your mobile phone stolen. To block the SIM card, contact the telephony administrator at your department or the IT Support at +46 (0)8 524 822 22 or email: (will be answered during daytime). State your name and phone number and that you want to block your SIM card due to theft or that you have lost the phone. Also state to which KI address you want your new SIM card to be sent. If you need to make a police report, you can do so at their website. When you have blocked a SIM card, you need to activate a new SIM card. Your telephony administrator can help you with this. If your telephony administrator is unavailable, contact the IT support.

2. Block your mobile phone.

Blocking the mobile phone makes it unusable, even with a different SIM card. To block the phone you must first file a police report.

The easiest way to transfer pictures and other documents is to use Google Drive. Check every app on your phone for the Google Drive icon.

Mobile usage abroad

Taking your mobile phone with you abroad is done at your own risk. It can be very expensive if you don't shut off all automatic updates and synchronizations in the phone before travelling. Check before travelling that data roaming is inactivated. 

The inactivation setting is found under "Wireless and network" and "Mobile networks". "Connect to data services when roaming" should be unchecked. A tip is to purchase a local pre-paid card when abroad. That way you have complete control over the costs.

Roaming within EU/EES

From June 15, 2017, new rules apply for mobile broadband in EU/EES countries.

  1. Everybody with a mex extension or stand-alone subscription can call, text and surf (only if your subscription is not blocked for roaming, which is the default setting) for the same price as in Sweden. Mobile Broadband subscriptions not included.
  2. Check with your telephony administrator at your institution which policy you have. In that case the telephone administrator can release your block at the operator (Tele2).

Note! When the roaming block is removed, you will be able to use mobile broadband anywhere in the world. Please be aware of that and be careful when surfing outside of EU/EES countries, as that might be very expensive.

Conference calls

Use the conference service if you want to have a telephone meeting with several participants simultaneously.

  • Distribute the code to the conference participants.
  • The conference participants dial (08-524) 823 00 and enter the four digit code. The conference call is now open.

Prior to the change of operator to Telia in November 2018, subscription forms have been changed, and thus the surf volumes. To facilitate the swithc, the IT Office has changed the minimum level of surfing for all mobile extensions MEX to 7 GB.

The statistics show that 60% of MEX users had a consumption below 1GB / month.

We recommend that the departments adjust their employees' pots every quarter to reflect the actual consumption of users. The right volume of surfpots and mobile broadband can lead to a saving.

My workplace is on the premises of the county (Landstinget) and I currently have telephony via SLL. Can I receive telephony through KI and be a part of KI's switchboard?

Yes, a mobile extension (MEX) will provide you with an extension in KI's switchboard if you work on the county's premises.

Can I make calls via KI if I work at Karolinska Hospital?

Yes, if you get a mobile extension (MEX), or if there are possibilities to call via VoIP.

Can organizational units currently not connected to KI's switchboard be connected via VoIP?

In certain cases, and depending on the existing data net, this will be possible. If a unit is interested in this, send an e-mail to IT Support. It is always possible to connect an organizational unit via a mobile extension (MEX).

How can I find out how much data I have left for my mobile subscription? (for both mex or stand alone mobile subscriptions)

Text "surfmängd" to 4466, and you will get an reply with your used and remaning data volume.

How can I save contacts, pictures and other things on mobile phones?


Easiest to do this is getting iCloud (free cloud in all iphone mobiles, use your @ for this) under settings. Here you can choose what you want to save. You can then access them from another iPhone. You can also log in to from a PC or Mac to access the content.

You can also save contacts and other things in free Apps, you can download from AppStore, such as Dropbox, Google Drive and Box.

Andriod phones (for example, Samsung, Sony, Nokia, HTC, etc.)

Here you can also save contacts, pictures and more in different cloud services available for free from Google Play. Most commonly are (Google Drive) preinstalled on the mobile. Here you can save what you need to save. Then you can open Google Drive on other phones, tablets, Mac and PC by signing in to Google with the same account (use your @ for this).

For more information, see "Change of mobile phone" under Telephony.

What should I do if I return back a cell phone to my institution?


Save what you need before you do this. Reset the phone under Settings-General-Reset. Here you select (Erase All content and Settings). It is very important that you remove the phone from (Find iphone) if you have activated it. Only you can do this because it asks for your Apple account password.

Andriod phones (such as Samsung, Sony, Nokia, HTC, etc.)

Save what you need before you do this. On all Andriod phones you can do a factory reset from Settings. But it is different between Android phones. Check the manual from internet (search for brand and model for your phone in Google or other browsers).

My iPhone can't find the Tele2 network. What should I do?

Most likely, there is a problem with system update in your iPhone. If you ignore system update multiple times, you may experience this problem. The solution is to connect the phone to WiFi (e.g. Eduroam, or other WiFi outside KI) to install the system update, which can be found at Settings - General - Software Update. When running the update, the phone switches itself on automatically a few times. Then the phone should  find the Tele2 network again.

My Iphone does not charge. What should I do?

If the iPhone is completely discharged, it may take up to several minutes before it starts charging again when connected to a charger. There is probably nothing wrong with your iPhone. Just plug in the charger and wait for the charging to start.

Also, something might be wrong with the charger. Try different sockets to be sure. Also try on another iPhone or iPad to be sure that it's note the charger that doesn't work.
