Maybe their next UnCarrier move could be about better protecting customer data.What is this, the third breach involving TMO?

I'm on one of their MVNOs, but I haven't gotten any email, and the CoR (customer of record) is probably the MVNO, not me, so I guess I'm save. Besides, I never use a password at more than one place, so even if they got the password for the account, it's not going to do them any good. (And if they get enough information to seal my identity - there are enough precedents to make TMO liable for any monetary damages I suffer.)

What are they going to do about it? Probably not a thing. Security is definitely not Job 1.

But thanks for the info.

It's even better when customers find out about it from the media.

Well there are two different breaches.

Breach 1 - T-Mobile only got breached for 2 or 2.5 mil customers info.

Breach 2 - There was a bug with Apple and Asurion that exposed AT&T + T-Mobile account PINs.

That's why you see some with AT&T/T-Mobile and some that are T-Mobile only.
I read an article that mentioned AT&T was breached as well but most news outlets are running with the T-Mobile story instead.

Oh, this affects AT&T accounts too? I thought Verizon/AT&T (and Sprint?) iPhone ordering systems were different than TMO's so they weren't affected.
