Phone company book

Phone company bookA phone company book is a telephone directory that has to be updated every year and given to the customers. We have all seen the huge heavy phone company books that come at our door step each year. These books are specific to the certain geographical region and the phone service provider has to print different books for each region. But these phone company books are a great way to find numbers and even addresses if you have the name of the person.

The phone company books have been around for a long time and each book contains names and numbers listed alphabetically. So if you want to search a name in the phone company book then it would be similar to searching a word in a directory. This is pretty simple and fast way to look up name and number of people in your area, if they use that particular phone service provider. Also sometimes there can be more than one person of the same name. This is where the addresses come in handy. So if you know the person’s name and address then you can find a perfect match for the phone number.

The phone company books are divided into sections or even different books and are referred by their color like yellow pages or white pages. While white pages are usually used for listing of personal number of individuals the yellow pages are used to list the phone numbers of business. This also is done is alphabetical order, but under each different business or profession head. So if you are looking for an electrician, you can use the yellow pages and once to reach the section for electricians you will find many businesses listed under that heading. The phone company book makes it simple to get numbers of multiple businesses and compare the availability and prices. Some phone companies in some countries also have a concept called gray pages which is used for going reverse phone lookup.
