    Can you apply a fan discount on AT&T's data plan for the iPad?

    I don't believe so--because data on the iPad is prepaid. It would be great if you could.

    I called AT&T and asked about it. They acted like I was from Mars and couldn't understand me. They said they would call back. They never called back.

    No, we can't apply the FAN discount to our data plans. :(

    Hmm... I get a 24% fan discount, but I haven't looked to see if it works on the iPad. I wonder if I can look online to see if it applys to my iPad.

    I work for AT&T. FAN discounts come off the $50 data plan.

    Nice, 24% off of 50.00 is 38.00 for 5GB, or 30 for 3GB. 8.00 for 2 more GB I guess isn't bad.

    Booloo how do I add my fan discount?

    Yea. It's a shame the FAN discounts changed when the new data plans rolled out. :( If you still have the 2GB plan your FAN will continue to come off of that though.

    Going into a corporate store is one sure way. But I'm guessing with the 24% you have a medical/healthcare discount, so if you have a work email they can validate that through customer care online or over the phone. You'll receive an email to your work email address and clicking the link will activate it.

    I only get 15%, but I still have the old 4GB plan for $45. I'm tempted to get the 5GB for $5 more but I really only use less than 3, sooooooo.... maybe not.

    EDIT: Duh, that's on my iPhone...

    Do community colleges typically have FAN discounts for faculty and staff?

    We get the same discount on iPad data attached to the company account as we do for anything else.

    Doesn't this only apply if your iPad prepaid account is added to your already established account? Basically, another line? I have a hotspot (non-iPad) added to my account with a 5GB limit and with my discount it's only $40. However, I'm reading this question as applying the discount on the iPad account that isn't attached to your account. I'm assuming it's not possible since it's a separate, prepaid account.

    As long as you're being billed monthly on a postpaid account it shouldn't make a difference. I know accounts where iPads were added on a completely individual and separate account and they still got the discount. Hope I understood that correctly.

    I found out that yes you can get the discount. But you have to get the 5gb $50 plan. Bad news your locked into a 2 year contract, good news the personal hot spot will be enabled.

    I'm taking my iPad back and getting a verizon model on pre-paid.

    Someone gave you the wrong information. You are only in a contract when you get a device for subsidized pricing. iPad isn't offered on a contract.

    I called three different times. They all said I would be locked in a 2 year contract and would have to pay termination fee if I wanted to stop it.

    At&t fan

    I have 23% service discount but only applies to 5Gb data. I wish they'd offer discount for 3Gb data in the future.

    My company also have 23% discount on Verizon but unfortunately IPad data plans are not discounted at all:(
