Can I list a home without publishing my phone number?

I want to get all inquiries by email and don't want to have my phone number put out in public.  Can I do that?

A belated thanks for your response.  We went the route of buying a prepaid cell phone and got our listing up with no further trouble.

1) With a make me move...
or
2) By listing through an agent instead of FSBO
or
3) By listing on a syndicating website (such as ForSaleByowner.com)

If you post a FSBO directly on the site, you need to provide that phone number for the confirmation code, and the phone number will be published for inquiries about the property.

If it is a "privacy" issue for you, buy one of the $15 prepay phones at Target... pay for some minutes and about 6 months to 1 year of "time", answer the phone for the confirmation code, record the outgoing message about the property and that you prefer E-mail contact, then turn the phone off, and periodically check the messages from your home phone.  If you need to phone someone back, use the prepay phone so that they don't get your information with the caller i.d.  You use 10 cents for each minute you use the phone, regardless of where the call is in the nation.  It doesn't cost you anything to get your messages from your home phone (except your home phone bill that you are already paying).
