Phone Book

I can't remember the last time I used The Phone Book; most of the people I need to contact have email, and any businesses I need to contact have their details on their website.

Lots of people probably rarely use the phone book, but BT probably still sends them one. They could save a fortune by having either a PDF of the final proof available to download or a good online search on their website, and having an opt-out of the physical book in favour of this for anyone that wants it.

Admittedly they may already have this - I don't use the phone book so I haven't looked into it...

  2. There we are, then. But can you tell them to stop sending you the physical book?

    Same happens when you need to find your local vet, a plumber or a TV areal installer. I find it extremely sad to see all unpacked yellow pages books still in their plastic covers lying around in my area waiting to be collected by a recycling man. Same thing happens to the one with a cat on the cover, and to the BT phonebook…

    I’ve recently started using for business search, especially for services like hair salon etc. If someone else has bookmarked a business site, it might be worth checking it out. Other good suggestion would be finding your phone numbers on
