Might be time to write to them and ask.

Its free money to ex customers if they have.

Perhaps I should post this as a deal?

It will be revealed whose data the sold - and to those it applied to will be entitled to damages.

Mobile phone companies rip us all off - so its nice to get revenge! :-D :whistling:

damages for what?
From what I can see T-Mobile didn't sell the data, it was stolen from them, and I think any claim against t-mobile will be extremely hard to prove

They kept it insecurely - permitting it to be sold on.

If held correctly their staff would be able to check an individual persons details - but not download and flog off "millions of records"

That is why there is court action pending against them under the DPA.

Can you link to the story that says that please?

The BBC report says different

Mr Graham confirmed his office was preparing a prosecution against those responsible for selling on T-Mobile data.
