Those behind Wireless 411 say there's a growing number of people who have dumped landline phones for cell phones and a large group of small-business operators — from plumbers to real estate agents — who use only cell phones to communicate with their customers.
In a survey conducted by her agency earlier this year, 52 percent of the respondents said they would list their cell-phone numbers in a 411 database if there were safeguards to protect their privacy.
When a caller dials 411, the operator will see that a cell-phone number is listed and will be able to connect the caller with the cell number from Qsent's database.
