    I know that Employees of Apple and AT&T (Wireless, SBC, BellSouth, etc) will no receive a discount on iPhone itself. I also know that the AT&T folks, who currently receive a discount on their service (from free, 20%, 40% or whatever) will have to pay the full consumer rate for the service on this phone if they are an early adopter.:confused:

    But does anyone know if the moritorium on the service conscessions is only a temporary thing. Are they going to punish the early adopters, who supposedly are taking the phone out of the hands of average consumers, and never return them to their contracted discount rate? Are they going to allow those with patience to receive the service discount? And for how long will they need to remain patient?

    What about family plans in this situation. If an employee has a family plan, with conscession, and changes one phone to the iPhone, does the entire plan lose the conscession? Can an employee have two accounts, one for the family plan, and one for the iPhone; and will they be able to receive the conscession on the plan without the phone?

    Well good for them, I'm glad someone gets something out of this.

    However, I'm more interested in the other party's deal.

    I'm an at&t employee, as of right now those are all unanswered questions. We received a very vague email that say any employee that adopts the iphone plan loses all discounts on their current plans. We don't know if that means we can have a separate personal account or what. We'll find out very soon, because I'm getting an iphone I don't even care if I lose my discounts, big whoop! I gain an iphone!!
