Military Cell Phone Discounts
Cellular phone companies are offering a 15-20% discount on your cell phone. Current military discounts apply to most cellular phone carriers, including Sprint PCS, Cingular, Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and more. You may be able to leverage other cellular carriers to match these discounts. You may need to provide proof of Federal employment - such as your supervisor's name, phone number and your unit's address. The salesperson may try to make you sign on for additional contract years - But, you are NOT required to do so to receive these military discounts!

Note: many emails with this information have circulated at many major military installations citing a "Federal Communications Act of 1996, Federal Employees Past and Present" -- this particular act does NOT provide for these cell phone discounts. In other words, this Federal Act has absolutely nothing to do with the current cell phone discounts, the discounts are 100% voluntary on the part of the cell phone carrier.
