Type in your phone number w/ area code in the search field. Make sure you enter your number in this format: xxx-xxx-xxxx and

Hit 'search'

People who haven't had their phone a very long time may not find anything. Otherwise your name should be found.

A reverse lookup direct from the search box?
Gee... and you used to have to go to superpages.com and find the reverse lookup feature.... this makes it too easy... :shakeno:

Yes.

A map to the victim's err... person's house is also one click away. I can't believe they would put this feature on a search engine.:(

If you click on the phone icon you can opt to have your name removed. It's towards the bottom. I had them take my information off.

How do you submit to get it removed? My home number is on there, but luckily my cell number doesn't give a billing address, name, or anything.

First, click on the phone icon that appears next to your name. This will bring you to a new webpage. Then, scroll down to the 'PhoneBook' heading. Under this heading you will find something that says:

"To have your residential or business phone and address information removed from the Google PhoneBook, click here."

Finally, click the link and fill in the required information and then submit the form.

It took them 3 days to remove my information.
