15% discount on eligible voice and data plans for Caltech faculty and staff individual plans, including plans for their family members. The account must be in the Caltech employee's name and a maximum of 5 lines are eligible for discount. The validation process requires that you enter your Caltech email address. Do not try to register for discounts using a personal email account.

Exclusions: Promotional and text plans are not eligible for discount. The first generation iPhone (2G) is also excluded.

Existing Accounts:

To get the discounts on an existing account go to att.com/wireless/caltech. Select “Create a new account or register for discounts” and click Continue. Select Discount Registration, look for Online Validation, and click there.

Sprint

NOTE: Details on the Sprint discount for individual accounts change from time to time according to the umbrella contract that we purchase services under. If you are receiving a lower discount than that detailed below, you can contact Sprint and ask them to update your discount code by following the instructions under Existing Accounts. When you upgrade your device you will be asked to re-validate your account. At that time your discount code will be updated in Sprint‘s system. In some cases this may result in a reduction of the discount you receive.

18% discount on eligible voice and data plans for Caltech faculty and staff individual plans. Activation fee is waived (up to $36). The account must be in the Caltech employee's name and only the first line is eligible for discount. Promotional plans are not eligible for discount.

Existing Accounts: To get the discounts on an existing account, call Sprint at 800-390-9545. Tell them that you work for a company that receives discounts for individual accounts, and ask them to update the Corp-ID for your account to the following discount code: GVSCA_WCA_ZZZ
