How is AT&T still in business? I'm in Australia and even here everyone knows they're completely incompetent.

They're AT&T, "Ma Bell". It's kindof like the old saying "Nobody was ever fired for buying from IBM".

One question - If the iPads weren't being provided for corporate use, why were people registering them with their corporate email address? If they were being used for corporate use, why were they being registered with an email address associated with a person, rather than a deployment team?

Yes, AT&T were careless to lose these email addresses, but there's other questions too.
