    No discounts on hardware, but I believe retail employees get a free work phone and work plan. There are service discounts for employees who have peronsal lines with AT&T.

    AT&T corporate employees aren't even allowed to buy an iPhone until several months after launch due to supply constraints.

    Service may be discounted, but not the device.

    Sorry for the bad news.

    I don't know know if ATT is different but I was talking to my a couple of folks at verizon and asked if they got a discount for the iPad. They glumly responded that they don't. Everything else they sell, they get a discount except for apple products.

    No discounts on equipment...and huge discount on plan

    there is no "free" employee plan...you will be set up on a ANR line (your service will run you about $35 a month) BUTTTTTTTTT the huge downside to this is no ability to sign a contract so you have to buy phones at cost (which is just a little lower then the no commitment price)

    I work for AT&T and kept my personal line and did not get the ANR line!


    now of course there are sales contests that result in winning phones (I've won a motorola backflip and blackberry torch which I instantly sold on ebay :D)

    wouldn't it make sense to ask them at your new job. I know I thinking way out of the box here. Just seems like a good question to run past your boss.

    Ask your boss. I'm sure it's info that is available to you. They want you to have a phone so that you can show it off to customers. I am an AT&T management employee, and we don't get any discount on the phone itself, but I do get 50% off my monthly bill.

    No discount on the iPhone, but you do get the corporate sponsorship fan discount, so service discounts, & 40% off accessories.

    Nobody gets discounts on Apple products. Not ATT, Best Buy, Wal mart or Target employees.

    Not true. Apple offers epp programs with many companies, at&t has one too, the only thing with no discount is the iPhone, everything else (including the iPad 2) is discounted.

    I wonder if the iPad2 would be worth waiting for the discount or just go buy it in another store

    I'd rather have the discount on the monthly plan. The savings would add up much more over time than having the discount on the phone.

    If you find one, buy it. The epp discount for the iPad isn't much.

    Holy thread revival, Batman!

    EPP as an Apple employee is pretty sweet. That's all I'm sayin' :p

    This thread is well over a year old. What are you doing? Wish this board had a downvote. :mad:
