    Do you get the discount of the iPhone data plan and text messaging or just the voice plan?

    I used to get our FAN discount on the iPhone data plan but it stopped at some point.

    Verizon or AT&T?

    With AT&T, the FAN discount applies to any charge that is "$25 and Up"... I have a 21% discount...

    My Plan:
    $40 - 450 Minutes
    $25 - 2 GB Data Pro
    $20 - Unlimited messaging

    Therefore, I get 21% off of $40+$25.... but no discount on the $20 messaging charge. And it only applies to the phone number the discount is applied to

    My FAN discounts voice and data. 20% discount.

    Not all FANs are created equal, though. Some will discount data, others won't.

    I get 19% off voice and data on AT&T. If you go the route of the shared plan, you get a discount on the base plan but not on the $35 per smartphone charge.

    I have a family plan with AT&T, each line has grandfathered unlimited data. I get 25% off of primary line for voice which is $60-25%= $45. And 25% each line for unltd data, each line is $30-25%= $22.50/line.

    I also have 1 VZW line with grandfathered unlimited data and I get same discount as above and I also get the discount on the unltd mobile hotspot.

    Pepsico is 23% on voice and data plans for each line on my account although I only have one. I play with the add a line a thing every now and then and it discounts the hypothetical line also.

    I have 25% off data+voice and for all lines. I'm still on the 550 family plan and my FAN only applies to this voice and the 2 data plans I have (unlimited and 2gb). If I change to anything else I no longer receive the discounts. for 2 iphones and a clam phone with no texting my charge is $106 after taxes.

    I get 19% off voice with VZW. However, my company has an agreement that our employees can still sign up for unlimited corporate data; albeit at $35 a month

    It depends on your company's contract with AT&T, but I noticed that I had a discount on my iPhone 4 2GB data feature; however, I needed to use hotspot one time, and when I tried to go back, I could only choose 3GB, and that feature didn't get the FAN discount :( Fortunately, when I got my iPhone 5, that got the FAN discount again :D The FAN discount also applies to the voice plan, but not to messaging, but again that could depend on your company's contract with AT&T.

    When I worked for AT&T, this is going back a couple years, the FAN discount was just off the Primary lines minute plan.

    It really depends on the FAN discount.

    Mine gives me a discount on the talk plan and the 5GB data, but not messaging or the 3GB data.

    IDK about other FAN's but I only got a discount off the voice and text plans. Data has been $30 flat since I added the FAN.
