Directory Assistance

If you need directory assistance, usually you can find it online or you can talk to an operator.

When you use online directory assistance you can find residential, business, and government addresses and phone numbers, as well as names. There are over thirty million links relevant to directory assistance.

When you click on a link to an online directory assistance page, you are usually sent to a page where you can search for information that you need. All you need to do is fill in the requested information such name, address, and/or phone number in the appropriate fields (online form blanks).

After you do this you will be sent to a new page of search results relevant to the information that you filled out on the search page. Using online directory assistance is very easy. Sometimes you can even find names with only a few letters of the first and last name as well.

In the event you cannot find what you are looking for using an online directory assistance service, you can dial 411 or a local or national directory assistance phone number to ask for assistance. The operators will do everything they can to help you.

A directory assistance phone operator will usually be able to find addresses that are listed under a name or phone number, and sometimes even cell phone number. They can sometimes also find phone numbers for you if you know the correct address. Usually it depends on whether or not the name, address or phone number is listed.

If the name or phone number is not listed then there is a chance that you will not be able to find what you are looking for. Unlisted phone numbers are usually kept private and are not in national directory assistance data bases. There are ways to find unlisted numbers advertised on the Internet, however, so you may want to try one of those services.

National and local directory assistance is very useful for finding lost phone numbers, mailing addresses and more. It is usually no charge if you use an online service, but calling a directory service usually costs approximately $1.25 per call.
