    Apparently, the jury is out. At first it wasn't required to have attended the RI colleges but now there are talks that it is, in fact, a requirement. As soon as I finish my correspondence with StudentRate, I will update this topic.

    This is the page you get after you register and click the "click for link" button. It includes your coupon code, which I clipped out of the picture ;). Expiration date for the coupon was Oct 31, 2010. As you can see, it appears the RI students/alumni get a better discount, but others are still eligible. I'll be working with a sprint rep today to see if I qualify. It's annoying how little detail is provided for this discount. I haven't gotten this kind of run-around since I last had a manufacturer's mail-in rebate. Argh.

    Update: My father tells me this won't work with the various discounts he already receives on our family plan, so I'm out :/

    I used the 23%. I think it is an honor system at this point. Even the 15% is an honor system. The definition is so large for the RI discount you can justify it.

    I'm just afraid of Sprint finding out none of us live in that tiny little state of RI and taking our discount away.

    EDIT: Are you the same mrpatience thats on StudentRate? I just saw the username in the two tabs I have open! Haha. If you are, what do you think they would do if they found out we didn't go to a school in Rhode Island?

    I've had some correspondence with the two moderators managing the deal on that site. I believe the the RI schools are open to the 23% discount and that virtually all other schools get 15% off per month. It does apply to family plans as well. The percent off discount is for the monthly bill before the $10 4g surcharge btw...at least it was that way with their deal on the Evo.

    By the way, RichieHD...you might want to remove your post from the StudentRate forum...the discount is through them, not exactly through Sprint...if you tried talking to Sprint CS about it, they would have no idea what you're talking about. The two people essentially running the deal are also extremely active in that forum...if they see your post before you delete it, then they'll definitely know about it.

    I would agree with aaz110, I also got the T-Mobile discount from them (this was a while back). They are pretty tolerant on the forum as long as the information is accurate.

    I'm pretty interested in this. I'm currently on a regular family data plan with 4 lines. I planning on upgrading to the Epic. My daughter is in college at NYU and I'm wondering what the discount I would get is. Do I have to buy the phone online and what online retailer would I buy it from? Do I get a discount on the phone upgrade or just the plan? How much is the discount?

    Can you please provide a link. When I login and go to Epic 4G discount thread at studentrate, it still shows that deal is only for RI students.

    I still can't see anywhere it says its for all students. It still says "The RI Higher Education Consortium discount is reserved for anyCollege/Student Employees or Alumni of URI, CCRI or RIC. This discountalso applies to any of the College/Student Employees Worcester, MA AreaColleges as well." Can you please refer to a line that says its open for all students now.

    what's so funny? there's nothing clear about the offer giving us your translation. that may be how it's worked in the past but for someone new to studentrate, no need to belittle.

    Is it a 23% or 15% discount if you're a student that isn't in Rhode Island?

    OK, so i've signed up.

    Now what? Do I have to wait until Aug. 31 and order from sprint.com? I'm pretty sure the demand for this thing will be high, so could i order Aug. 30 at like 12 midnight?
