    Yes there is, it 20% and 45% off phones. Go to any retail store but beware they will give you the run around. To me 3 visits to the store and 2 calls to CS. They all told me something different each time. Finally I went to the mgr. of the store he did it for me and gave me a print out to confirm it.
    The discount is for all NYC workers..

    Smile NYC Employee Discounts

    Hi I work for NYCT a part of MTA. As an employee you can receive 20% off your bill and 45% off equip purchases. The foundation acct # is available thru Employee Benefits. Or you can email me privarely. I suggest you call 888-444-4410 and try to negoiate an attractive plan for you and your family. The number is for NBO on the Cingular Blue (AT&T) side.They give up better promotions like bonus anytime minutes, early nights starting at 7pm, free incoming txt msgs and free picture msg until 2006. Give it a try. Good luck.

    How about adding it to an existing contract? Or can you only get the discount when you sign up?

    He is refering to whats called a Foundation Account Number. I doubt that a dealer would do foundation discounts because he would be losing ALOT of money on a handset.

    Yes you can add it to an existing contract. You would get the % off and your next phone purchase you would get at the discounted rate.

    And even if they do, how is this question relevant? Many companies that have discounts or rather FAN accounts with Cingular pay their employees well, should that exclude them from a discount?
