To list your business in the phone book, call the phone service provider of your business, verify ownership of the account and request the service provider to add your number to the 411 directory. Call 411 to find out the status of your listing.
When you order a business phone number from a service provider, the service provider lists the number in the 411 directory by default. If you find that the service provider did not list your number in the phone book, call to talk to a service representative. You can find your service provider's contact details on your phone bills. The representative asks a series of security questions to confirm your authority to alter the status of your business phone service.
After the representative verifies that you are the owner of the business number, ask him or her to list your number in the phone book. Some providers charge a fee for listing. Ask about the fee before proceeding. The operator will list your business when you end the call.
If you want your business number listed in multiple directories, visit listyourself.net and fill out your address and phone number. Complete the validation phone call and wait for a confirmation email in five business days.
