This feature eliminates the inconvenience of writing down or remembering a phone number when calling directory assistance on a wireless PCS phone. Instead, directory assistance pushes the number directly to the phone book in the user's handset. One particularly important use case is when the user must drive and talk on the phone: this automatic entry is not only convenient, but can keep a driver's hands on the wheel and attention on the road.
