USplaces.com itself can be accessed and used directly from a mobile browser, as the site automatically adapts to the screen size of smartphones and tablets. However, 800yards provides mobile users with an easier, more convenient way to access the data when out and about.

Data discrepancy handling

When maintaining millions of business listings, openings, closures and changes to business information get overlooked from time to time. We update our directory regularly with information directly from local telephone companies. However, if you notice missing or incorrect listings, we very much appreciate your feedback!

To drop us a note, please use the feedback form marked with this feedback icon icon in the main information box of every listing.

If you want to send a correction or removal request for an existing listing, the fields will be pre-populated to facilitate your input. If you want to notify of us of a business that is missing, the input form is blank.
