Just seen this on engadget
On a more serious note i'm interested to hear if anybody running a Vodafone handset sees their number show up.
You can run the test by navigating to http://lew.io/headers.php on your mobile.
When i run it on mine it isnt showing any mobile number, just the handset model (which is normal). Im using a debranded handset so just wondering if that made a difference.

This is a General Dig at networks
Some Networks have lost there way,concentrating on PR and profit
This has shown up a major problem with a Network
They did move fast to sort this out but the way they did that looked a bit of a mad panic
This should up One they don't make Firmware its contracted out
There Aerials (Masts) are run by a Private firm
The only thing they Looked after was there servers and that was the thing that was causing the problem
O2 was big when they took over BT Cellnet now 3G did the damage to them as they were late in the game
Now the leak was pointed out by customers, But yet again it was egnored until it was put on the net, Faced with bad PR and a Major back lass they then took a look at it
