I'm not with T-mobile but I'm pretty sure that I read of people who had current accounts with them adding the Freelancer Union discount to their existing account. I think that would make sense because you can become a freelancer at any time. In fact I think I remember specifically someone asking about how their billing cycle would change one they added the freelancer discount to their existing account."There are only 10 types of people in the world: Those who understand binary, and those who don't."How To Search ~ Search Effectively ~ Crackberry 101 ~ WiFi Guide ~ UMA Guide ~ SD Card Info ~ BB Browsers Explained

Yes, you can just call and add the discount to your current account. If you are getting a new line someone scored an 8900 for $150 with a 1yr term ($100 for 2yr) with no activation and free 2 day shipping!

It is true. I did this by going through my local business/corp account rep. I just called them and told them I am on a corp account with freelancers union and they set it all up. She said 200.00 before rebate for one year and I said, "before rebate" and she confirmed I then asked if I could get a one year cause I wanted to upgrade in a year to a 3g version and she said yes but it would cost me 50.00 more bucks. Getting it by tuesday!!
Keep in my I already had an account I am adding a line a for me with the 8900 (already moved my gf).
I don't know if that makes any difference but that was my circumstances.

...I'm sorry, I'm a little slow. When it says free curve, does that also apply to the 8900?With the Curve 8900 upon us, happiness has pierced through my sadness and given me new hope.

No it doesn't mean the 8900, they have had that promotion for a while.
10% discount is on your monthly bill from any rep no problems, anyone can get it.
The discount I got on the 8900 was simply because I spoke with my local business/corp rep and she allowed me to get a new line and 8900 with the standard corporate discounts similar to what everyone got who jumped on the RIM developers promo a few months ago.
If you want the same deal, call your local tmobile store and ask for the number to your local business/corp account manager. Then try your luck at getting the deal I did by letting them know you are on a corp account with freelancers union and you would like the 8900 and start negotiating from there. My rep was really cool and glad to help even though I pestered her into giving me everything she was allowed to haha.
