Verizon Wireless Agreement

Discounts:

  • Monthly Service Plans:
    20% (Plans with access of $34.99 or higher, Primary line only for Family Plans)
  • Phones/Handsets: 40-100% off manufacturer's listed price.
    1 or 2 year contract required

    Existing service must meet eligibility requirements for sale prices
  • Accessories 25% discount
I am looking to get a new cell phone that has a GPS to help with my job as a new mailman. However, does anyone understand how the phones/handset part of the discount works (in bold)? The Verizon store said it's only if the USPS gives you a corporate phone but I am not sure if that is true. I was looking at the Droid X which with no included discounts, is $570 without contract, $200 with two year, or $270 with a one year contract. Thanks

There is a 800 number you have to call to get the phone discount. The Verizon store wont give it to you.

Our Verizon store will, just ask for the B2B (business to business) rep. Our  Verizon office the girl comes around once or twice a month, you show your postal id, pick out a phone and they mail it to you. AT&T also offers a discount (get the iPhone!)

Hello,
 
  I am a retired postal employee interested in cell phone service with Verizon. I have been with ATTwireless for years and never realized I could get a discount on anything. I see you post is a year old are you still in the business?

Hey, finchrat, AT&T gives a 25% discount to postal employees. I don't know if that applies to retired employees, but its worth a shot.
Verizon gives a 17% discount on monthly service (not 20) in our area (Northeast). We chose Verizon over AT&T because Verizon has better coverage here. Since Verizon began offereing the iPhone, sales at AT&T have plummeted.

Go to the LiteBlue website. Go to the Homepage. When the page loads onto your screen, scroll down and in the center on the screen are the employee deals. Scroll down and you will see the phones section.

Q: If I have additional questions and concerns
that I feel are not being addressed during my call to the VZW call
center, how may I escalate my concern so that my needs are being met? A: In cases where you feel your needs are
NOT being addressed by the representative on the telephone, please feel
free to request to speak with the managing supervisor on duty.

Note to NE and SE Region Customers: Verizon “ONE BILL” is not offered when you select the Postal corporate discounted program.


Verizon Wireless Customer Service: 800 922-0204


For matters that can not be resolved by a Verizon
Wireless representative at the telephone numbers listed above, please ask to speak with the representative supervisor or manager.


USPS employment verification is required to obtain the identified discounts.

Yeah thats the problem ATT isnt sure if retirees qualify for the discount and want be to sign up for a 2 year contract then they will tell me if I get the discount within 2 billing cycles. Verizon isnt sure about retirees. I thought maybe one of you guys would have been through this.

20 years ago your ID number was your social security number, wasn't it?

Why can't you just make up a number? Or how about this: Is there some kind of number (like retiree account # or something) on your retirement paperwork or on your checks?

98% of the time when someone asks for verification of something like this, all you have to do is give them ANYTHING and they'll take it.

The liteblue website suggested by someone else here requires an employee id number of 8 digits. SS number is 9. Tried my CSA number on my annuity statement which is 8 but that didnt work

once retired you no longer have access to postal internal web sites. 
 
 if you did not take advantage of the discounts available before retirement looks like this is your only option.  http://www.keepingposted.org/deals/default.shtml

Actually, I have 5 lines with Sprint and I only get the discount on the 1st 2 lines, they took away the discounts on the other 3 lines - as well as the upgrade frequency.
 
The price is good, but the service SUCKS!

Why do you say the service sucks? Im curious because I hear conflicting reports some people really love sprint and others say it isnt very good. I have Att right now the service is fine but the reception is spotty lots of dropped calls.
