That can only be done if the phone number is publicly linked and accessible to a profile or something of you with that number.

Hi Selena,

Unlike home phone numbers, your name and address are not shared by the phone company. The only thing someone could find out is the city you live in just because of the way phone numbers are distributed. As Goran said, the only way someone could find your number and name and address is if you publish that information somewhere that dosnt hide the info such as an open Facebook profile.
