What gave you the idea that you can try to do that even? It's almost as random as asking if you can power a car with a stick of gum and cat hair. I guess if you had a list of phone numbers in a file somewhere, you can use a cmd window and some commands to read a string out of that file.

You can even use a dos window to open a web browser and execute a search I think, I guess that may give you a phone number if it's listed. http://stackoverflow.com/questions/14778318/use-cmd-prompt-to-search-a-word-on-google-or-other-search-engine but all that's doing it opening another program to do the work for you. There is no command line command to "find phone number" in a dos window.
