White Pages

Friday, July 17th, 2009 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

I can never seem to find my phone book, which in itself is mildly ridiculous since we get two delivered to our home. I don’t know where they are hiding but I most likely put them somewhere I thought I’d remember where they were – and now I don’t remember. But I’ve found a way around the whole problem; I use the web site White Pages instead.

The site is broken down into tabbed categories, they are:

People and Business – this is where you’ll do most of your searching. You can look up people or businesses by filling out the designated forms with the required information. Each category has its own form:

To find People you need at the very least their last name, their first name and location are optional. You can also click advanced above the fields to broaden your search options. By choosing advanced you can choose to search by the start letter by checking the “begins with” box, that way if you don’t know the exact spelling you can still get results.

For the Business lookup there isn’t a required field which means you can do category searches as well. For example you could type in pizza and your location and pull up the information for pizza places around you. If I put that in with Toledo, Ohio as the location I pull up five pages worth of pizza results.

Reverse Lookup – from time to time you need to do a reverse lookup. Either someone has called your house and you want to know who showed up on your caller id or you only know the person’s address that you’d like to call. Fill out the forms with the information you have and give it a go.

More Searches – here you will find even more searches! You can do an Area Code search, Mobile Phone Carrier search, Zip Code search, and a Neighbor search.

Add Your Listing – you’ll need to register to use this. What it allows you to do is create your own white page listing for FREE, so you can control what information people have access to if they’re looking for you. I personally prefer to be unlisted but I know that there are people who don’t mind being listed. This will also allow you to add a cell phone number to your listing. If my parents wanted to be listed that would be a great option for them, because they don’t answer their home phone during the day when my dad’s sleeping (he works nights).

Either way, if you’ve lost your phone book, or are out somewhere without a phone book but you have internet access you can use this page to find the numbers you need for free.
