BT TELEPHONE DIRECTORY (PAPER & ONLINE)

Do BT still produce paper copies of directory?  I did find my landline in the last directory I got years ago.

Should I not be able to find my number on internet by searching 'my name' on some web address?

This also does not work.

Why would you want to publicise your number - thus attracting Spam?  I've never been in a directory.

I understand the scenario but today, it is not solved by telephone directories.  Most people use mobile phones for which there are not and can not be directories. You can change your SIM/number twice a a day.  Directories also give addresses, so you can separate one Joe Soap from another and that would require specific permission.

@wac It would seem they do still do the physical phone books. Have a look at the FAQs on the link below.

Under "Supply & Delivery Enquiries", it states that they deliver them every 12 months and that if you have not received one, you can order one for free if you are a BT customer. Otherwise if not  BT customer, you can order one for a fee.

Re: BT TELEPHONE DIRECTORY (PAPER & ONLINE)

Hard work is not easy, regarding getting a paper copy of phone book!!!

Please note the following and hopefully someone will be able to correct the web page.......

google has my name & address. Whenever I select my name the pro-forma fills in the name & address.

However for unknown reason (the fault!!) it puts the STREET as ADDRESS2 and the HOUSE NUMBER ONLY as ADDRESS1

THIS FAILS!!! and OBJECTS TO HOUSE NUMBER ONLY, 

WHEN I FILLED IN MANUALLY WITH HOUSE NUMBER AND STREET AS ADDRESS1 IT WORKED

I look forward to reading my phone book which I have now ordered and which I have been paying for without receiving it!

PLEASE FORWARD THIS TO APPROPIATE DEPARTMENT

Re: BT TELEPHONE DIRECTORY (PAPER & ONLINE)

I'm confused now @wac How can you be paying for something that is free of charge?
