    well I currently have an iPhone 3GS on AT&T and because my grandma used to work for the state and has the paperwork we get a 15% discount on our bill, does Verizon also offer a similar discount? (I'm 17 so I can't legally buy my own Droid lol).

    and hi everyone:)

    Yes,

    Working for state or federal government, you do get a discount. I get 15% for service, 25% accessories.

    Hello Josh......

    If you don't get an answer to your question I'd recommend calling Verizon directly to find out. Unfortunately I do not know the answer to your question but wanted to welcome you.

    Enjoy the forums.

    Why can't you buy a Droid if you are under a certain age?

    I would guess that you don't work for BB. My daughter does and I can tell you that the discounts are MUCH better than that. If you get put on the employee Verizon plan you pay about $20 for everything. Not sure about data but that includes unlimited voice and SMS.

    Unfortunately you cannot add family members to that plan. I use my son-in-laws plan which he got through a major utility and we get 21% off every month.

    The discounts vary by the size of the company/customer. I know Home Depot get a HUGE discount with AT&T. I believe it is 27%.

    I also know of a contractor that was working on a short term project with Dell. He walked into Verizon with my contractor badge on his shirt. They automatically gave him the Dell discount which is more than 20%.

    While I would never suggest that anyone do anything dishonest I seriously doubt that a cellular sales employee could tell a real employee badge from one that was cobbled together with a downloaded Dell logo and laminated with a picture printed on it.

    Discounts vary. If you want to impress the VZW CS Rep, call in and identify yourself as an AT&T customer, and are thinking of switching - and that you need them to look into their "EWI Profile" for specifically what the discount is for (the state).
