    Hey All,

    Does Verizon offer qualifying corporations discount for the iPhone 5? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    Nope. No carrier does.

    Though, a few months from now, it's possible you could be offered discounts on iPhone 5 refurbs. Just be wary, because Verizon may or may not use Apple to refurb their phones, so the quality could suffer.

    Yup, when they ordered mine it came to $149.99 instead of $199.99.

    I don't think you get any discounts on the hardware because of your monthly access discount. At least I know I don't. I get an 18% discount on monthly access and a 25% discount on accessories, I believe; but no discount on the handset because of my corporate discount.

    I did get a $50 discount on the iPhone 5 because I was grandfathered in under the "new every two" deal, but that's the last time that will apply since Verizon has since done away with that.

    I should mention that the $50 was somewhat negated by the $30 upgrade fee; but I still saved $20 when all was said and done. My total after taxes and fees came to just under $300 for a 32 GB iPhone 5.

    VZW. That said, it may be the grandfathered NE2 like was mentioned above, I'm not 100% sure, I just know that it was $150 when they ordered it.

    Newbie post with no evidence? I call BS.


    OP, no to the phones, but yes to monthly plans &'accessories; sometimes to certain fees.

    Yes, it was the fact that you already had a $50 discount from Verizon. This was a reason that many chose to order from Verizon instead of Apple. They wanted to get the extra $50 discount since they already had a $50 discount on their line/account.

    The poster did indicate that they were not 100% certain about the discount. As others have indicated the corporate / group discounts are only available on the monthly service fees when an iPhone is purchased.

    While Verizon and other carriers often offer discounts on other devices, Apple does not allow them to offer discounts on the iPhone!

    Thanks for all of the feedback guys. I'm still happy with the monthly discount.

    How does VZW's corporate discount work exactly? If someone works for a qualifying company do they get discount based on their email?

    I work at Verizon (which owns 55% of Verizon Wireless), and even we don't get a discount on the iPhone.

    I was asking about the actual month to month service discount for qualifying companies. I know that it's 17%, but how is that established? Just based off of an email?
