I arrived in town for good last week and got my home phone service through Cox. The installer didn't bring a phone book with him, and when I called Cox, asking for one, the customer service rep said they didn't have any and to check with the post office.

I went the post office, and the clerk there said they didn't have any and to check with the library.

I went to the library and the clerk said they didn't have any, except for reference material.

So, where do you get a phone book in this town? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Sprint or Embarq or whatever they call themselves now, has always been the phone company that publishes the book. However the book also says published by Dex, whoever Dex is. The yellow pages comes out twice a year, the white pages is down to once a year. If your service is with Cox though, you may be out of luck for automatic delivery at your home. With computers nowadays phone books are almost obsolete.

Although Cox provides telephone service, they are a cable company, check with Embarq, the traditional telephone company, also i have seen phone books at Terrible's locations that are free for the taking in the newsstands...

They always delivered them to my house at least 2 times a year, even when we did not have a home phone, just cells.

Most people nowadays just use online. I get at least 5 calls a week for us to advertise in the phone book. I don't want to pay over $100 a month for a little one inch ad. We just have ads on just about every free classifieds there is and we do a lot on Craigslist.

wander around any foreclosed neighborhood. You will find any number of orphaned phone books sitting outside the abandoned doorway. Help yourself. It is a form of delittering.

We no longer use the yellow pages. We now Google.

We do however keep a couple of copies around for the weight when we paste the DIY projects together and need something to load it down.

I suspect the whole genre would vanish if not for lawyers and sex trade.
