Phone giant faces inquiry over sale of customer records
Philippe Naughton and Richard Ford
"The private details of millions of mobile phone customers, including their numbers and addresses, have been sold illegally.
"Staff at T-Mobile passed the information to brokers who then sold it to rival phone companies. The companies then called customers as their contracts were due to expire to offer a better mobile phone deal.
"T-Mobile confirmed that it was being investigated for breaching data protection rules after Britain's information watchdog said that an unnamed mobile phone company had been involved in the illegal sale of customers' records."
