    If Apple is no longer recieving any money from the monthly plans, does that mean I can apply my college discount again on an iPhone line? I called 611 on my current phone and talked to AT&T but they know less then me on the 3G iPhone subject.

    Any ideas? Speculation? :apple::confused::apple:

    an at&t email that got leaked yesterday stated that discounts will be able to be applied to the new iphone. I'm quite excited about this as well

    It seems to me that you probably would, but all of that depends on how much AT&T is trying to get for the phone & plan when all is said and done. If with the discount the phone is not profitable you won't be able to take advantage of it since they would be losing money by allowing it.

    Do the discounts include corporate discounts?

    I checked using AT&T's website, and my dads work email qualifies for an AT&T Premier discount... what does this mean for me?

    That makes my day, 10% off an 80 dollar bill, almost like I'm getting those extra 800 texts for free.


    Yeah, that's how I'm gonna see it. So I don't feel so badly about my life...haha.

    I would hope it means corporate as well, not fair to just do one.

    you have to check if your university has a discount with ATT. I go to Penn State. So we have it, 10% off the bill monthly is nice.

    What if you're a student but your phone isn't the primary one on the account? Does the discount still apply?

    student discounts can be found on the university web page, just search around a bit. Once you find the page there will be a link to how to sign up. And no you dont have to be the primary line i believe

    Apple gets the benefit of being able to say their phones are half price, thanks to AT&T's subsidies. Plus, Apple wants people getting their apps from the AppStore now.
