Although I have always had a printed copy of the latest telephone directory for Jamaica at home [They send out new ones annually], I may have only used one twice, or most three times - in the last 3 years!
That is because I have little need to.
Not necessarily because I make few calls (actually it is the opposite), but mainly because I am usually in front of the computer most of the day - both at work and at home!
OK I agree, that's not too healthy :-(
Essentially though, I find it super easy to find telephone numbers for businesses (and persons) in Jamaica. Thanks to Cable and Wireless - now LIME Jamaica!
They have really started to shape up nicely these days as a result of the competition.
They now have both the yellow pages and the people pages [white pages] online, and they do make it fairly easy to navigate as well.
In fact they have a brand new website that is crisp and highly user friendly.
You can search for a business or individual phone numbers from the very same page.

Remember though that the area code is 876 so you'll need to add that to the number you find when you are dialing it.
By the way, did I tell you that LIME's telecom competitor, DIGICEL, now has a partner that is rivalling LIME in this regard?
Yes, RedBK Jamaica, also provides a local telephone directory that is advertised to reach even the 'skyjuice man'.
You can find their directory at http://www.redbk360.com/
