Last month I got my bill in the mail and it was $30 over my normally monthly fee. I realize it's only $30 and it's no big deal, but that's $30 I can use on my wife...or something at Apple. Anyways to my point. I was receiving these 5 digit phone number text messages and I never responded had no idea how they even got my number since I never give it out and on my bill I had 3 services for $9.99 each for random text messages about the sun, when I should date (i'm married?) and some other random crap. Needless to say I called AT&T they removed the charges and when I asked how these even got there they said they give out everyone's number to these places because they receive a kick back and they won't stop the charge either obviously because it's money in their pocket. Disappointing if you ask me. I started to think some more about my recent activity and remembered I created a Google+ account so I e-mailed Google and I got a response about how they also give out your number and e-mail address to companies like that for Ads. They didn't mention anything about a fee getting paid to them, but it wouldn't surprise me if they did. ...reminds me of Microsoft and how they do business, glad to say I own a Mac and am apart of the Apple team.
