I don't want my phone number to be made public.

I'm a freelance graphic designer, I work from home, and I only have personal cell phone. I don't want the world to see my phone number. Is there a way I can make my phone number private, but let people know that it's available by request only?

I'm afraid but there is no option to specify a phone number and getting it shown on request only.

Have you thought about using a service like Google Voice? You could get a vanity phone number that routes to your actual number or goes to a voicemail and you would be notified about the voicemail message though email. This would allow you to add a contact phone number without publishing your personal number.
