Can people somehow get your phone number (without you giving it to them) when you use a text/calling app?

Some unknown person contacted me via text. They said they got my number from the add. Is this possible??

    Yes, if you have free or cracked games on your phone it is easy to get your number "borrowed", if you allow apps that don't need access, to permissions to contacts, like a bowling game, asking to have access to contacts and banking info.

    Yes its possible if they track your I.P. address. I think there is a way to give yourself a fake i.p address though.
