    Default 15% or more off your 3g iphone bill
    Did you get the new iPhone yesterday? Then you may be eligible for a 15% FAN discount. All you need is your student e-mail address to apply the discount on your monthly bill. Also works on Family Plans.

    http://www.att.com/wirelessdiscounts

    College students, as well as employees of eligible companies, are qualified for at least a 15% FAN (Foundation Account Number) discount through AT&T (applicable to voice & data, hardware excluded). Unlike the original iPhone, the new iPhone is a traditionally subsidized phone as they no longer have to share revenue with Apple. So in theory, this means AT&T should treat the iPhone 3G just like any of their other smart phones and is therefore eligible for student/corporate discounts.

    It takes 1-2 billing cycles to take effect. and will automatically enroll in a NEW 2 YEAR CONTRACT if you apply the discount.

    Source: Apple iPhone Apps - How to save 15% on your monthly iPhone 3G AT&T bill

    Update:
    g10ny on fatwallet also posted this:

    Also apply for a Citi AT&T credit card for another 10% off here and pay the bill using it.
    10% for a year, then 5%.


    So now your looking at 25% off or more

    Ack.

    I wasn't paying enough attention.

    On an old, blue legacy plan. Prior to a few minutes ago my account said that I was upgrade eligible.

    I used an email address for a university I'm associated with and it was accepted.

    But now it says "Unable to determine upgrade eligibility online."

    Did I screw myself by re-upping to the 2 year contract that the FAN number did? Btw, I haven't had a new phone from ATT in at least 4 years.

    you should be ok because the upgrade goes off of when you got your first gen iphone, not when changed your plan.

    Hmmmm.... Thanks -- but a question: I got via eBay a jailbroke, unlocked iPhone in March. Does the mere fact of having one showing on my account make me ineligible for the upgrade price (I never switched to an iPhone data plan, just continued to use my old blue unlimited data plan so I could switch the sim between iphone and AirCar)? Should I change my device showing on my account before going to the store?

    I have a quick question, since I signed up the other day for another contract, does this discount add another contract on top of the one I just signed up for?

    Just an FYI.. adding a FAN to your account WILL NOT add a new 2 yr contract. That info is false.

    Phew. Thanks. Was just at an ATT store, and, interestingly his records show that our phones are actually old analog phones -- despite the fact that my account online shows our correct phones!

    But he confirmed that I'm still eligible for an upgrade.
