This is for those who want Phone Books ...BUT... do not want to keep a Bu## Load of unused crap around the house..... You can find most all people with land lines.....yellow pages....business pages....Government listings ...and other crap...for major areas in SEVERAL states by going to .......... http://www.localedgephonebook.com/Florida/Florida.asp ENTER your SEARCH criteria and PICK your AREA .....on the "opening" page near the top..............OR... On the opening page....Choose Ocala.( it is on the third line of choices )..to find phone numbers IN and "AROUND" The Villages......Then on the NEXT PAGE....choose the type of listing in which you are interested, from along the menu bar near the top.........SHAZZAM.......then enter your "search". Several other States are available along the left side of the "opening" page. Remember though, iffen they h'aint listed in no dang Phone Book, y'all a'int gonna find it. .........HAPPY HUNTING. BUT,....If you have a SLOW computer call 411.

You can also just go to 411.com and find a person, a business or do a reverse phone number search. We use it all the time.

once you choose a name, it doesn't give any information unless you pay for it

I believe if a person shows up under a 'Sponsored Link' such as People Finder, for example, then they're wanting money to see all their info. Otherwise, you should be able to click the 'Phone' icon to the right of their name and display their address and phone number for free.

At least that's the way it's working for me!!

If the person has a listed phone # it will give it to u. If # is not listed then it will ask u to pay if u want to get it.

Tommy, if I look up my name in the town where we live in OH, it shows up under a "Sponsored Link" and it wants $$ for the info.......yet we do have a listed phone number. Why ours shows up that way is a mystery to me!

Thanks, Mr. Fixit, that's a great link. I've bookmarked it.

You can also dial 800-373-3411. This is a free 411 on your cell phone. It works great for businesses.

That is great if you are home at a computer or have a cell phone with internet. The 800 number is great for businesses only if you are away from any kind of internet access.
