We receive AT&T directories too. We live in Brazoria, on the Gulf Coast, where we're served by Brazoria Telephone Co., a small independent telco (only three NXXs). It publishes its own directory, with both white and yellow pages. BTCo has served the Brazoria/Churchill area since 1946; AFAIK, it's never been a part of AT&T/SBC. But AT&T still delivers its directories.
