How do individuals or businesses get my cell phone number?

Question by Bob P: How do individuals or businesses get my cell phone number?
I use my cell phone sparingly and give out the number only to family or close friends. Last week I received a call (did not answer) from a telemarketer. Today I received a text message “inviting” me to an Internet web site. Is it an individual or a computer sending out the text messages? Does Verizon sell my number?

They have databases that we would only dream of! I have an unlisted, blocked number yet I still get calls for every con game in the book.
