L.A. Observed points to LAT and Daily Breeze articles on next summer's 310 overlay - a move likely to return us to eleven-digit dialing. The new code? 424.
I have yet to see any article not mention the thousands of numbers held by phone companies for . . . . for . . . well, what for, actually?
The outer limits of my policy knowledge end before the PUC, but isn't the state's utility agency responsible for checking into stuff like this and forcing companies not to force us into bullshit extra dialing? And not to threaten our favored area codes?
Anyone with insight is welcome to comment or email . . . .
I suppose it's better than a split. And those of us who live solely on cell phones have long ago ceased knowing anyone's number (we just dial through our contacts list, right?). Still, seems off.
