Cellular telephone companies do.  And they don't publish their customer 

Note that I said cellular which has been packet-switched since AMPS went 
away.  Landline telephone companies also connect you to a global 
switched network, which happens to be circuit-switched.  They may or may 
not publish some of their customer lists.  Telephone companies are in 
the unique position of charging extra for both unlisted numbers and 
extra listings.

Telephone companies also allow their customers to hide their source 
address from the recipient on a per-line or per-call basis.
