Jamster and butter

Jamster, a service I have never knowingly used, appeared [as Netsize] on my last Telstra mobile account, @$5 a hit, many times a day. Big bill! Phoned Telstra, they removed the charges, took my number off Jamster's list, and barred the account to future "premium SMS" without my explicit consent. All in less than 10 minutes with reference numbers provided. Question remains: what is the basis for allowing Jamster-like firms to access/use your phone number without some more formal basis of consent? I am not tech savvy, but as far as I know never agreed to anything. This process seems akin to putting the pin and your credit card in a media release!
