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.

Nope - never used them anymore, lol.

Either threw them away or went to recycling.

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.

Posted yes first then realised, sometimes. If I can't find a number then it's directory assistance.
