Woman Says T-Mobile Sent Her Kiddie Porn Instead Of Ringtone

A T-Mobile customer in Oregon purchased a Modest Mouse ringtone from T-Mobile, but she says what was sent to her phone instead was a pornographic picture of what appeared to be a child. Everyone can calm down, though—T-Mobile assured her that they wouldn’t charge her for it.

Egan… immediately deleted it from her phone and called T-Mobile.

Twice.

“And both times they put me on hold, and came back and said, ‘Well we’re sorry. We’ll make sure you don’t get charged,” said Egan.

Frustrated, Egan posted her experience on the Web site’s community forums page to warn others. She also called the Oregon Attorney General’s Office and wrote in to KVAL News.

T-Mobile later e-mailed this statement:

“T-Mobile is taking this very seriously and will fully investigate. We understand the importance of child safety and offer customers options including content blocking and parental controls. We will work directly with the customer and law enforcement to fully address this.”
