    hey everyone, my current laptop is on the way out and i'm going to be purchasing a new Macbook. I'd do i now but i am concerned that on July 11th they might add the iphone to the current student deal of get a new macbook and get free ipod touch. What does everyone think, is it a possibility they will expand the student discount to iPhones?

    I think you might be safe. The iPhone does not normally fall into that category and if it's not listed now... but it could happen.

    Don't think so, they didn't do it last year when AT&T wasn't subsidizing the iPhone, so it's less likelier they'll do it this year.

    As a student myself, i highly doubt there will be a discount for the phone itself, but there is one for the monthly charges. Mine is 15% :)

    no discounts on the device itself. the only discount you can get is on service. and thats only if you work for a company who gets discounts on at&t

    go to the premier site for at&t and type in your school email and see if you are able to get a discount. i go to USC and get a discount on monthly charges :)

    Here's an idea...

    Why not buy the macbook and get the free ipod touch, then sell the ipod and put the money toward a new iPhone 3G?

    Student discount work on family plans somehow? I wouldn't think so, but worth asking.

    now im on the site but i cant find the data plans, the only ones i can find besides the blackberry ones are like dataconnect 5MB.... where r the unlimited ones

    also, i checked the company that im doing an internship with over the summer and i get more of a discount with them. i wonder if it only applies when im working for them, or if i just have to provide the email when i sign up

    Sometimes the data plans are not included in the deal between you school/company and AT&T. For my school I can see the unlimited data and text plan but when I went to another company's Premiere account they did not have the unlimited data discounts.

    Sweet! It even works for current AT&T users like me...

    "Congratulations — the certification process is complete!

    To the extent you are eligible to receive a service discount, you should start receiving the discount within one (1) to two (2) billing cycles."

    Thanks for the insight!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The chance of the phone ever being given a student discount is unlikely, the discount usually just applies to computers. They are already stretching it a little far with the iPods and they are mainly being added to add an incentive to buy a Mac. Expecting the phone to be added to the discount is asking a little bit much.

    The discount is typically a certain percentage of your monthly bill (Mine is 15%). They discount everything automatically (right now I have just voice and text), so you don't have to ask for a specific text plan discount.
