You work for USPS, so you're underworked and overpaid. Why would you be pissed about someone getting a discount?
Haha someone is pissy. And talking smack about service members is not the best idea. You'll never win that argument. They should have some of the highest fan discount.

Also I think a lot of under educated, none performing, lazy government Employees exist. They are the worst and they do not care what people think because they know they cannot be fired easily. I have worked both the GS scale and in the military. The government should be the top-notch organization in the country to work for not corporate America. However we have let The worst kind of lazy people into these jobs.

So how does one get the FAN number added to their account with AT&T? I ask their methods because years ago I worked for a company who received a pretty good discount on Verizon's network and I've been using that discount ever since. 20% off the monthly access fee, 25% off my data plan on the primary line, and 20% off phones and accessories.

We have considered switching to AT&T with the iPhone 5 release; however, our current employers discounts are nowhere near what we're already getting with Verizon. The only way I'd consider switching now is if we could somehow get the same or a better deal through AT&T.

Thoughts, comments, suggestions???

Anyone know what Google's discount is on AT&T? In T-Mobile, Google's discount is the highest.

Try www.att.com/wireless/XXX where XXX is the name of the company FAN you want to get. For example, www.att.com/wireless/usps for the Postal Service. Click the box for transferring your number and it should take you to the plans for that company, with the discounts listed.

You can also find a list of most of the FAN discounts on the Howard Forums website.

How do they verify if you work for that company?

They send email to the address you supply them, from that company.

for me, I work for the University of Nevada, which encompasses UNLV, Univ. of Nevada Reno, and the Colleges of Southern Nevada. My email address ends in 'nevada.edu', so they sent mail to that address. I received it, followed the instructions, and boom! FAN applied to my account.

BTW: 15% for me off the bill, 25% off accessories.

BL.

If you read through the threads on Howard Forums you'll see they don't verify if you go through the www.att.com/wireless/XXX website. There is a 1 in 100000 chance of the account being audited, which requires verification, but those are low odds.

AT&T refuse FAN discount on 3GB data?

Hi -
I interpret for the deaf - and ATT has decent data + text plan for Deaf. Also many people (like those on this thread) work for big companies and get FAN discounts.
Yesterday I went to ATT store with new iPhone buyer (Deaf person with text + data plan only) to find out why she did not get her FAN discount. (USPS employee) She had just received her first full month's bill for iPhone service and no 25% discount was applied.

We were told only the 5GB plan gets the discount - not the 3GB plan.

So, her USPS discount is worthless to her, but when I went with her to BUY the phone she was told she WOULD get the discount.

Anyone else having similar problems with no discount being given on DATA plan? Do you also work for USPS?
