Print Article


As a Lehigh employee, you are already a VIP in our eyes. But some of the university’s many vendors also think you’re someone special. That’s why they offer us discounts on certain personal purchases.

Through agreements negotiated with LTS, for instance, you may be eligible for discounts on mobile phone service from three major carriers. Complete information is available on the LTS Website.  We’ll share a brief synopsis here.


AT&T

Select the plan that works best for you from among AT&T Mobility’s offerings. Then, apply the special benefits of the Lehigh program:

  • 17% discount on monthly plan costs
  • Waived activation and upgrade fees
  • Special discounts off new wireless telephone equipment.
  • $25 off One-Time Credit with $25 or higher Data Add On Plan and $39.99 or higher Voice Plan with New Activations (excludes all iPhone/iPad/Tablet Data Plans)-Limited Time Offer
  • $50 off One-Time Credit with $25 or higher Data Add On Plan and $9.99 or higher Voice Plan with New Activations (excludes all iPhone/iPad/Tablet Data Plans)-Limited Time Offer.   

Sprint

Lehigh University employees now receive a 18% discount on their Sprint Nextel bills.  To setup new service with waived activation fees, get upgrades, get discounted accessories, or apply the discount to your existing plan, please visit the Sprint Employee Value Program web site.

For additional questions or if you are a new Sprint Nextel customer,  contact our Sprint EVP account representative- Andrew Haucke at (888) 457-6294, fax at (888) 279-0450; email Andrew.Haucke@mynationlink.com.


Verizon Wireless

Verizon Wireless offers, for faculty/staff of Lehigh University, competitive plans and discounts on eligible Verizon Wireless accessories. For additional questions or if you are a new Verizon Wireless customer, please contact our Verizon Wireless account representative before going directly to a Verizon Wireless store.

Our representative's information is: Leah Ruscitto at (610) 220-8692, fax at (215) 633-2676; e-mail leah.ruscitto@verizonwireless.com

Current Verizon Wireless customers can visit a Verizon Wireless Retail Store/Service Center store for phone repairs/replacements only. When visiting Verizon Wireless Retail Stores/Service Centers, please be certain you are visiting an actual Verizon Wireless Retail Store/Service Center NOT an "authorized Verizon Wireless reseller/dealer."

The following addresses indicate locations that are actual Verizon Wireless Retail Store/Service Centers in the Lehigh Valley:

1820 Airport Rd./Allentown, PA 18109/610-266-3660
2180 Macarthur Rd/Whitehall, PA 18052/610-770-7970


Very Important Notice!

If you have a contract with another wireless service provider, be aware that there may be penalties for terminating the contract before its term (usually one or two years) is up. AT&T, Sprint and Verizon will not cover penalty payments to other wireless providers, so please check your existing agreement carefully if you wish to convert.

And, as always, certain restrictions may apply.
