    I change mobile numbers every 4-5 weeks exclusively as a protest against privacy invasion because face it, in the USA, there's more crooks in those government positions that monitor electronic phone communication then if this wasn't happening by them.

    I been text/robocall spammed occasionally before all this gov monitoring ever began but this current covert siphoning of phone data can easily compromise your LEGAL business communication potentially exposing your routine banking practices to STRANGERS who then can do anything with it they dam well please. Nobody needs or deserves to have to be put in this manner of vulnerability because they have this useful convenience available for them that THEY PAY GOOD HARD EARNED MONEY to save them time and travel.

    Monitoring this way MUST END!

    More WOW stuff.
    That WILLbe the day. This level of spying is totally unacceptable and if/when they bring this in, it's bye bye internet for me.

    This becomes like credit scores. The cost of insurance or for taking a loan goes up base on phone number?
