Never did as the text was too small for me to see.

I use them because I do not have a smart phone so when the internet drops or the power is out I can still look up numbers. One of the reasons we still have a land-line is the fact that it works when the power is out.

Nope, I unsubscribed and don't receive them anymore either.

I suggest that everyone who does still receive them but never uses them or just throws them away to search on the website for the company that provides the books for a way to unsubscribe. Those books are usually huge and a gigantic waste of paper.

I mean, think of the trees.

I find it ridiculous that these companies are wasting resources when the Net has made the phone book almost obsolete.

In short, no It goes straight to recycling.

It's not just "the phone company"... take a look at who's name is on your last several phone books. I get a few per year from different groups.

I use em for business phone numbers, but so rarely I'd be happier if I didn't have them. I don't live alone, so not my call.
