Local Calling Area
SpaceVegetable

Why, with all the technology Verizon so proudly touts in all its commercials, can we not find out our local calling area on the web site? Instead, we're directed to go look it up in the paper phone book. Give me a break. It's all stored away in a database somewhere and it's really a no-brainer to allow access to it. Honestly, that is just completely lame in this day and age.

Verizon is partnered with a number of services for phone directories and online.  Your attempts to look up phone numbers will go to one of them.

Whitepages.com is one of them and it has

and

http://www.whitepages.com/maps

A believe whitepages.com is the one they use for Verizon Visual 411.

Wow. You got a paper book . I am so disgusted with VZ. Gone are the days were the company cares wether the customer stays with them or drops the landline and uses their A TT cell phone. My husband retired from VZ we are suppose to get a break on our bill , haven't seen that lately and you know no one answers our question, not even the virtual ones!
Still trying to find our local toll calls.

I don't understand.  As the poster has suggested, this is a no-brainer.  It shouldn't need to be voted on as a "great idea."  It should just be done.  Verizon should be focusing on customer service, and not on social media participation.

I hope that helps.   Just enter your state and then search for your city.
