Discounts for the new iPhone 3G are now included in the AT&T service plans for Purdue University staff, employees and students.

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Voice and data service for the recently released iPhone 3G is now included in an agreement between Purdue University and AT&T that provides discounted wireless services to University students and employees.

AT&T began offering a 20 percent discount on June 1 on regular basic plans for cellular phones and personal digital assistants including Blackberries. The offer also will include the monthly voice and data plans for the iPhone 3G as of Friday, July 11. The university discount will not apply to equipment purchases of either the 8 GB or 16 GB iPhone 3G devices.

Users of the new iPhone 3G will be able to download and connect to the Internet at a faster rate than with previous models.

The discounts are available to those at the West Lafayette campus and Purdue’s Calumet, Fort Wayne and North Central campuses. The discounts do not apply to equipment upgrades and cannot be used with other offers, but Purdue students and employees with existing AT&T plans may be eligible.

“We realize how important it is – especially for students – to be connected and save money at the same time,” said Gerry McCartney, Purdue’s vice president for information technology and chief information officer.

Purdue students and employees can register for the discount on iPhone 3G wireless services when purchasing the device at AT&T retail stores. The iPhone 3G goes on sale Friday (July 11). To find a local, authorized AT&T store, go to http://www.wireless.att.com/find-a-store/. Purdue students and employees can register for the AT&T discount on other wireless services through the ITaP Shopping Web page, http://www.itap.purdue.edu/shopping/ATT. Those receiving an AT&T discount must have a valid Purdue e-mail address and the appropriate Foundation Account Number. For students, that is 2523574. For employees, it is 2016767.
