Hey everyone. I just went into to my local ATT and got preapproved for the iPhone 3G. No deposit needed for me. Thank goodness. $500 is just unbelievable. Also the guy told me I was eligible for my 24% discount through the company I work for. I didn't even have to ask, he just told me while he was entering my info. He said it didn't work for the original iPhone, but it does now. Hopefully this question can be put to rest.

SWEET :) Did you try/ask if the pre-approval could be used at an Apple Store? You get a receipt or they just keep it in their systems?

That's awesome. I was wondering if they were going to allow discounts for it. I wasn't counting on it. I get a 5% discount on purchases and off my bill each month for being law enforcement. Not much (definitely no 24%), but better than nothing.

just to be clear. there is no discount on the phone itself, just the voice and data plan

I think I'll go to the Apple Store first and see if they'll do the same ;)
I'll be sure to report back :)

So if I'm currently eligible for a 15% service discount through my company, would that 15% apply to my plan as whole when I get the new iPhone?

I have one line now and I'm going to be adding a line in order to get the subsidized price. So, if I were to get on a family talk plan for 69.99 and add the 30.00 data plan, putting me at 100 even we'll say, would that give me 15 dollars off my monthly bill?

does this apply to text plans too?
Actually i think text plans are excluded by ATT for any discount. Not positive about this, but I believe it discounts voice and data only. Anything else like navigation, MMS, SMS, will not be discounted to my knowledge

I'm good to go for Friday. No deposits or higher rate for me. They told me to just pick my text plan and come on in :laugh2: Friday.
