“Wait y’all can do this,” one viewer commented.
“How you do that … asking for a friend ofc,” another TikToker wrote.
“Really ?” one skeptical person said. “Thought you’d need the owner of the phone present.”
Some viewers had their own theories for how a T-Mobile worker would be able to find the phone number.
“All you have to do is go in and ask for a new chip put it in your phone and bammmm get all his texts lol,” one viewer said.
“It’s on the monthly statement,” another user added.
Another viewer, who said they also work for T-Mobile, commented, “Yea I’m with T-Mobile too … you just pull up the statement online and u can see the numbers y’all text or call.”
Other viewers thanked the T-Mobile employee for doing “God’s work” and called her “a queen” for helping the customer expose her husband.
