Unlimited Plan and Corporate Discount

If I switch my current data plan to one of the new unlimited plans, will I still get my corporate discount through my company?

No. Military / Veteran discounts only.

You will, however continue to receive any other benefits from your FAN. Examples include discounted accessories, waived activation/upgrade feets, etc. In my case, I get waived activation/upgrade fees, but pay full price for the plan.

The new Unlimited Data Plans from AT&T are a joke.

1) You loose corporate discount (22 percent in my case)

2) All phones cost $5 more

3) Vehiciles like my Equiniox to have wifie doubles from $10 to $20

 

This sucks!   You advertise that you have no gimicks.  Your commercials are al lie!
I end up paying about $30 more per month to go unlimited!


Not giving corporate discounts makes these plans useless!

Actually, unlimited was $40 a line on the recent active plans. So it dropped $20 a line. 

But even if you want to look at it your way, you went to UNLIMITED for $5 more a line.

 

Your vehicle now has UNLIMITED data instead of a portion of whatever it had on the old plan.

To get UNLIMITED you have to pay more for the data that was limited?!?  Seriously?

The new unlimited plan also allows for mobile hotspots.  So people can add a mifi to a plan for $20 a month.  

Unlimited data.   That's the benefit.   

Anyone with 4 lines:

.....paying for 25 gigs of data or more On the Mobile Share Advantage plan would be getting off cheaper with unlimited.  ($5)

.....or on the Mobile Share Value plan with 30 gigs or more would get off cheaper. 

 

If you dont like it, don't have you plan.  But it provides a great deal for those who really need unlimited because they have many lines and use 100 gigs or more.

Now I'm feeling screwed as well and wish I had read this first. Yesterday I switched from my grandfathered unlimited plan to Unlimited Plus, and took the time to read the fine print and links, yet saw nothing to indicate the corpo discount would be lost.  My first surprise relates to device charges and whether the $20 charge is permanent or only lasts until I've fulfilled my contact obligation.  The website led me to believe the latter but now I'm believe that isn't correct.  Yes, I got tethering but the reality is there are no savings compared to my old grandfathered plan, so why did the webpage me to believe otherwise and urge the change?

What happens with equipment under this new plan...do we have to buy our phones at retail prices?  My old plan gave a minor discount for iPhone ($200-300) and required a contract, but negating this will eat any residual savings.  

What a disappointment.  At this point I need to decide immediately whether to call and revert the changes back to my old plan or whether to just deal with this for a few months and until my contract is up and do something else entirely.

Your old plan doesn't include subsidized phones any more either. They stopped doing that a little over a year ago.

"It says in bold print military and veterans only."

 

I'm curious where it says this when you're existing customer switching plans in the MyATT portal.  I was similarly surprised when I received my bill after switching from a grandfathered unlimited plan to one of the new unlimited plans and no longer had the FAN discount applied.  I'm fairly certain that there was no disclaimer or acknowledgment required, and the bill estimator speaks in terms of gross costs (cost before discount) vs. net (cost after discount) when comparing old vs. new plans, so it's not an apples to apples comparison that's evident to the customer.

 

I was initially suspicious of these new plans, and even after close scrutiny AT&T has once again proven that they can shaft their customers.

@Jasonw3 If you click view price details it gives specifics and has a very clear line item for discount:Screen Shot 2017-03-23 at 7.30.55 AM.png

 

 Even the choose your new plan estimator shows the discount (without having to click):

I was informed I would still have my corporate discount, even have the printout showing it. Shortly after switching, it was removed. Told one thing and got something else. Now I have a higher priced plan that is even higher than expected due to the discount being removed. VERY UNHAPPY WITH AT&T.

If you have the print out, and want your old plan back, use it as leverage.  

But that is your only option - go back, or deal with the new price.

If I add the veterans discount to my account, will my corporate discount get bumped off?
