I haven't used Directory Assistance for more than 5 years. Hopefully even
at a public phone I won't have to use it.
What about whitepages.com.au? It's fast (ish) and if you can't find it
there, you won't find it using directory assistance anyway. They actually
use the same web site for their searches.
If I'm out, on the so far non occasion I might need directory assistance, I
call the office and have my staff find the number and details. It's faster
and less frustrating.
