Want to steal the phone number of any Republic Wireless user?

Want to steal the phone number of any Republic Wireless user? You just have to know their phone number and zip code and you can transfer that number to another carrier, no questions asked. I hope they weren’t using that phone number for any 2-factor authenticated sites…
