If you're trying to erase your phone number from as many places as
possible on the web, there are several steps you can take.
The first is to request that Google remove your phone number from the
database that they have compiled from listings provided by numerous
phone companies. You can do that here:
Google Phonebook Name Removal

In addition, this page contains a link to the Reverse Phone Directory
( http://www.reversephonedirectory.com ), which provides links to
these and other online phonebook sources.
While you're at it, be sure to do a Google web search on your phone
number. Plug your number into the Google search box in the format "123
456 7890" (be sure to include the quotes). You may want to contact any
site which returns information about you for that phone number, and
request that they remove your information. (Be aware that they may not
be legally required to do so.)
Remember that the only way for your phone number to truly be as
anonymous as possible on the web is to get a new, unlisted number and
give it out only to family and close friends. Don't post it on your
personal website, in online forums, or anywhere else.
