Why should all postpaid customers change their pins if no postpaid phone numbers or pins were compromised?

Two years of credit monitoring is a joke, as everyone else is saying this isnít the first time for T-mobile and there have to be real penalties in place for things to change.

If they know more and arenít disclosing it (and instead saying the information wasnít compromised) that would only make things worse.
