Is your cell phone leaking your phone number on the web?

http://www.pcworld.com/article/192570/is_your_mobile_phone_giving_up_your_phone_number.html

Curious if anyone outside the US can confirm that this actually happens?

that's the test page to visit on your cell. I don't see any issues with
it with Verizon in the US.

If your cell phone is actually leaking data, he's hardly the worst
problem you have.
