Well... your phone knows your number, so they might not have gotten it from somewhere else.

With the permissions in iOS they’re not supposed to have access to my phone number, but I do remember something about them having access to a “special api”, so I figure that’s exactly what happened

Could the "special api" be the built-in iOS Facebook sign-in?
