  • Phone Book software

    Ok, your on the road, you have the GPS, you have the MP3s. You have the movies.

    Say you need to call XYZ hardware store? Is there a www.yellowpages.com CDrom that you get get for your PC? Or any other kind of phone book databases that you can download or buy?

              the phone king around here is qwest and i know that somehow i got ahold of the listings on cdrom for free (don't remember how though, hell maybe they came with the actual phone book) but appearently they also sell the listings on cd and on paper at http://www.directorysource.com/ but they are $$$. I'll look around and see if i can figure out where i ordered them from for free.

              edit: that we website sells a cdrom version for $10 and also a cross reference version for $235
              don't worry i know i usually don't make much sense

                  Why would you need phone numbers in your car without a cell phone? :P

                      I have the Atlanta Yellow pages and white pages. There's a drop down for different books. I got it last year (I think) from the yellow page web site. It has a seach by name or catagory, or you can just flip through the pages.
                      It's the cake having/eating thing.

                        This may or may not help, since I'm in Canada.

                        After reading this thread, I went to Superpages.ca (I'd guess www.superpages.com would work the same way) and sent them an email requesting CD's of the white and yellow pages. They replied the same day saying that they'd send me a CD right away. No charge. Only White pages, as they're waiting for the Yellow Pages, and for me to email them at the end of this year for the following year's Yellow Pages.

                        That might be worth a try. If everyone requests one for their province or state, then share them via torrents or something, we could all share without bothering them too much.

                        Cheers,

                        Kris

                          There's a version of Street Atlas from Delorme called SA Plus that contains a database of business phone numbers integrated with their mapping software. You can enter a name or number and it will locate it on the map. It comes on one DVD. You can also buy the residential phone database for the entire country.

                          I have an older version called Street Atlas / Phone Search, and it was pretty handy.

                            I use Street Atlas plus with the phone book. Proabably a pricey way to get a phone book but oh well. I have the whole dvd copied to the hard drive. I use it occasionly since I am on the road alot. Not a great navigation program, but it can find things.
