The letter begins with an apology about the exposure of private information to public light and comments that everything has been resolved and that you can continue to use AT&T services safely…

They explain how hackers overturned the security of AT&T authentication and obtained the information from email and ICC-ID . They also reassure the customer that no information about passwords, email content, personal or contract information was obtained by the hackers.

Yes, yes, according to AT&T nothing happens, but you know, what equipment is behind certain email addresses and what are the ICCs of their cards… I would not be at all reassured.
