    So my parents and me are on a family plan. I got the fan codes associated with their work places. I then spoke with the business hotline of att and i was told that data is not included in the discount, only voice. Is this true considering i saw this

    It depends on your particular FAN discount. Each one is different. Some include a discount on data services, some don't. Some include a discount on services over a certain dollar amount. Each one is negotiated between Apple and your company/school/etc.

    Prior to summer of last year FAN discounts were rate plan, data and any features attached to the main line, since then and going forward any new FAN discount is on rate plan only. Anyone grandfathered in continues to receive discounts based on old rules.

    Well just because someone who can read some premade script out of a handbook says something doesn't mean it's true.

    The FAN systems are all screwy.

    They used to give FANs on text messaging also. But they did away with FAN discounts for text messenging about 18 months ago.

    I am only supposed to get a FAN 24% discount on my primary line and data. But I give 24% discounts on all of my other three lines (voice and data!). They aren't suppose to do that but I will ride the gravy train for as long as it last.

    Been a Cingular/ATT FAN account holder for 6 1/2 years with this type of discount.

    so i am confused, i cant receive the discount anymore because i was not gradnfathered in? Or is per the arrangements of each fan code? I am a current att customer for two and half years. My mom is a govement worker at a hospital. Any suggestions?

    Josh have you been under the fan discount already or you signing up now?

    Just checked as if I were opening a new account with my employer and it was showing a discount on both voice AND data but nothing else. Main reason i'm probably gonna get the new one. I use to get it on everything when the 3G came out but they eventually axed that to just the voice plan, surprised to see it back on the data side too :D.

    every employer has different arrangements with AT&T for discounts. so some may have them, some may not. depends on when/how the FAN was set up by the employer.

    Not exactly.

    Here is the standard disclaimer:

    With respect to both Corporate Responsibility Users (CRUs) and Individual Responsibility Users (IRUs), the Service Discount described in your AT&T business agreement is NOT available on the DataPlus Personal $15 and the DataConnect $35 plans. DataPlus Personal $15 plan not available for Corporate Responsibility Users.

    Your individual results may vary based on your group's agreement with AT&T. Yes, that means that you might get a discount on the $25 DataPro plan as the example above shows....

    I was told by the person that negotiated the contract that our discount is on ALL recurring monthly charges.

    Of course I get to my account and I see the iPhone data plan is excluded. :mad:

    Mine too. I will be new to AT&T (for the 2nd time) and I will be pre-ordering through my Premier site so I can get the FAN discount applied from day 1.
