I must be thick as I am having a hard time finding NZ residential numbers online.
Whitepages.co.nz while being a favourite google result just results in error!.

NB I am not talking about business directory eg with finda.

cheers

whitepages.co.nz loads fine for me. Telecom broadband in Auckland.

What error are you seeing?




Samsung Galaxy Note 3 N9005
ROM: Stock Telecom release 4.4.2

If you can't fix it with a Big Hammer, chances are you've got an electrical problem!

You should contact the IT dept at work and ask them to look at this. Perhaps they have a proxy that is not working correctly. Or the site is blocked for whatever reason.

Unless you are the IT person...

I believe that the whitepages website used to blacklist IPs they felt were "excessively" using the service, or using it for "business purposes".

Try ringing them:

You can also contact us at any time with the following contact information:

Free phone: 0800 803 803

Or if you can get to this page (which is yellow pages, and may or may not be blocked):

http://help.yellow.co.nz/yellow/contact-us/

there is an autoemail form to fill in.

thx for feedback - most helpful.

most probably a security / firewall issue given the nature of our setup.

I'll log appropriately


cheers

When I contracted to a large NZ bank both white pages and yellow pages websites were blocked as the bank refused to pay for access.

Imagine of google did that. But I am sure there are ways around it such as proxies.
