My current company provides me with a phone and cellular service.
Does Amazon provide any benefits like this?

If they don't then I can start looking for a new phone and carrier of my own.
Also, what are some of the untold benefits which they offer?

      @XLRa82 Can it work with my family plan? If so, do I have to be owner or I can be a member too.

      Or, it works only with individual lines.

      You just put in a reimbursement for $50, doesn't have to match up 1:1 with your phone bill.

    You know if you use company issued equipment you get no privacy right? All that porn in your history...

      Yeah, other companies I've worked at that provided a phone I still carried my own personal device. I prefer getting $50/mo to carrying around two phones all the time. (But one is free...)

      It's very much anecdotal evidence but I think while you shouldn't expect to have privacy on corporate devices, companies don't really care what you do if you don't work in like finance or something heavily audited

    How does Amazon handle international data changes when traveling for work. Example, Verizon itโ€™s $10/day. Do they give more than $50 towards the cell bill for those situations?

    If they want me to be on call with a 10 min response time...they better plan to buy me a phone. Because Iโ€™m not carrying one if they donโ€™t buy it.
