    So Betty Crocker Coupons wants to send me a text with a confirmation number before
    they will let me print their coupon, but I don't want them to have my number. (I don't
    EVER want these ad people to spim me with unwanted texts.)
    textum.com says they'll let me send a text and receive a reply to same, but that won't
    work for these coupon sites; for that I have to give them a number and receive a text.
    Is there any way to keep my personal number out of their servers? I don't mind
    giving out my cel's number to a remailer if there's such a thing as a trustworthy one...sl

    Usually there is an UNSUBSCRIBE with any email you receive. Betty Crocker is a major company, and you shouldn't have any issues with unsubscribing. You can also add to spam filter.
