    I made the mistake of using a live transfer number on all my sites; example (800-111-2222). When doing a google search "800-111-2222" I can see all my sites. If I were to just change the pages (numbers on each site), would that be enough?

    That phone number is only listed on those pages and were not advertised (connected to the company) through any outside domains.

    Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    Yes, if you change the number on each of your pages then the number will eventually drop from the serps as each of those pages gets spidered and the cache gets updated. You could possibly speed up the spidering time by pinging each of your updated pages once you have made the changes.

    However, if someone has already scraped and republished the pages with the phone number on them, it's almost impossible to get rid of it.
