What type of harm can a scammer cause with just a phone number?

I was somehow coaxed into revealing my phone number on a messaging platform, and I’m not sure how much danger I am in.
The other party only knows the number and my name, and I’m not sure what can happen. However the situation that played out made it seem like all they needed was my phone number for the scam. I got in contact with my carrier service to disable all charges through the phone bill but I’m not sure what else there is to do.

  1. I believe, they can do nothing with that two info. The worst-case scenario I have in mind is they could send more scam texts/calls on your phone number.

  2. A lot of things except you have security access to your number
    He can use your number and for a code that would be sent to it
