do you have any evidence that at&t are actually selling numbers ?
telephone numbers are sequential 6 digit numbers
they are assigned in blocks - and basically if you know one valid number that has just been activated - it is not rocket science to decuce that the
proceeding blocks have been assigned
tele-marketers can generate " call lists " without the knoledge or complicity of the teleco
second - have you read the T&C of your service contract ?
in most cases you are only leasing the right to use the number - it remains the property of the carrier
this allows them to retain the right to use the info for thier own purposes
read the small print
