Getting spammed since AT&T gave up my email address
I was one of the iPad users whose email address, etc was revealed in that exploit from a few weeks, ago. I know because AT&T sent me a long, rambling letter to that effect.
Not long after that, I started getting more unfiltered spam than prior to that point. I read privacy policies and whatnot when I sign up with sites and services and don't think this is a coincidence.
Have any of you experienced this, too? (AT&T email exploit + subsequent spam increase)

I've been told something similar by a couple of people, but my calls to AT&T on other issues has been so fruitless and counterproductive that I hesitate to spend any more time trying to contact them than absolutely necessary.
As this topic keeps popping up, I'm beginning to think I should contact them. But if no one else is experiencing this,...

I'd call AT&T and try to talk to a manager but calmly and firmly... Heh screaming usually just makes them angry and wants them to help you less. That email leak was a big deal and your email might be around now, do a search on google for it and see if it comes up? My friend had his account leaked in a similar way a month ago and a search in google showed it linked to porn sites that he didn't even know existed heh.
