How often have we been down this road? AT&T is being plagued with a variety of security issues with the Unlocked IPhone 4 it has on shelf. In fact, many of the pre orders that have been placed have shown that much of the user data being shown is actually wrong. Apparently, there is a certain bug in the system that results showing one’s private data. Unbelievable! Most users of Apple first faced a similar issue when they used the iPad. Considering the fact the pre-order applications for the iPhone 4 had already been hit by previous glitches, this new issue might lead to gloomy future days for the iPhone and AT&T.
So what exactly happens for the displaying of the wrong user data? Many users have claimed that when they log onto the system of AT&T so as to validate their pre-orders, they are presented with the information of others. What’s more is that nearly everything is made public through such a mismatch! When one logs in, not only is the name of someone else displayed, but even phone numbers, bills as well as addresses. One can even see monthly usage as well as family and friend usage. Basically everything you can think of!
Although we all knew that there would be much anticipation and demand for the iPhone 4, AT&T had not anticipated so much stress and response, leading to immense pressure on their systems. In fact, reports have suggested that many iPhone 4 Unlocked device customers have been trying for hours to log in correctly to no avail. What’s worse is that all sensitive information of users can now be visible to others across the nation.
Even worst is that AT&T have simply not been able to learn from their previous mistakes, when in January some customers faced similar problems.
