If a person who has a cell phone wants to get his cell phone number in the white pages of the telephone book, exactly what would he/she do? Thank you. Murrar

(This thread is a bit old, but I just saw it.)

Lots of variables here, starting with "What telephone book?"

In my neighborhood we get "phone books" with white page residential listings from two (some years, three) companies -- only one of which is the land line "telephone company." And, to make matters more complicated, the traditional land line telephone company (Verizon) is trying very hard to stop sending out directories with white pages (residential) listings. I believe they've already received the okay in Pennsylvania to stop delivering white pages unless a particular resident specifically requests it -- <HERE>. Yellow page commercial books will still go out -- they get paid to do that.

Anyway, if you replaced your land line with a cell phone it's unlikely that the land line phone company will be interested in providing a listing. Unless you buy a listing, of course. When I worked for a telephone company in the 80s it was possible to buy white pages listings -- usually to get your phone listed in a more popular neighboring exchange, or in the same book as a relative, etc. You'd have to call.
