Before I left work today, I walked into the owner's office and he wanted to see my iPhone. I showed him some of the features (warning him that the home screen was modded (with the LCARS screen, no less!)) and now he wants one.

He asked me how much I paid for it, and I told him $600. So he tells the general manager to cut me a check tomorrow for $300 to cover half the cost! Since I'm already using the phone for work as well, I don't mind at all. :)

Seems you both have respect for each other. My husband uses another phone at work all the time, more so than for personal, he has to pay for his own.

Me, I have my own, iPhone.

Cool, but who owns the phone now? if you leave tomorrow, not saying that you will but if, who owns the phone? Will your work want the phone? Will you have to reimburse them for it? I hate it when work pays for stuff like that. I like to know that I own my stuff, especially when it come to data. Since work owns my laptop they also own all the data on it, is that the same with the phone? I don't want them having all my phne numbers, email and texts an stuff. I actually have two phones because of this. My crappy work Motorola and my personal iPhone. I suspect I will end up with two iPhones though. yeah, its a pain but my personal stuff is mine, not my works.

Nice! I used the money i got from tips at my work. Saved up 525 in change. so really I only paid like 150 out of my pocket for my iPhone. (with tax and data plan)

My boss

My boss has paid for every phone and every bill. Too bad I'm my own boss.

"Hey, do you still need a cell for work?"
"Yes"
"Apple's got the 8GB iPhone in stock right now at the Vegas store-- go grab one and fill out an expense report for the mileage and phone. We'll activate it tomorrow on the work account."
"...thank you!"

And now I have an iPhone.

My boss bought me an iPhone and has always paid my cell bills. Sadly, the iPhone can't be used with a businesss account, so either I or my boss will have to put it on a personal credit card and then submit the bills for reimbursement. Thanks a bunch AT&T. :rolleyes:
