AT&T offers a 15 percent discount to active duty, reserve and retired veterans for the primary phone number and varying discounts for each additional number. Sprint, U.S. Cellular and T-Mobile also offer veteran discounts on cellphones. Contact specific providers to learn about the veteran discounts available.
Once the list of possible providers is narrowed down, ask to speak to a manager if the customer service representative is unaware of a veteran's discount. If an individual has a current account with a carrier, ask if a discount can be applied on a go-forward basis. Consumers may be required to renew a two-year agreement. Proof of military service is required to receive a veteran's discount.
