So what is the solution?  Well for one thing the white pages aren’t as relevant as they once were.  Before cell phones became popular they were very useful.  However, today most people don’t even have a land line phone in their house.  Each occupant (including children) have cell phones.  Why would you want to call someone’s home phone number and then ask for them, wait for them to come to the phone… only to have them say “I’ll call you right back on my cell” or “call me on my cell”.
