Today's Rave: 10-digit dialing coming to Valley


“Technology being advanced is why they have to do it in the first place, it wouldn't fix it. Everyone and their brother not to mention kids have cell phones it’s only common sense that numbers would start running out.” – Lindsay Hook Sassaman

“It’s not that much of an effort to dial three extra numbers. Plus, if you are calling out of the area for any particular reason, you would need to dial the 10-digit phone number anyhow. Not a problem.” – Brach Williams

“The reason is we are running out of exchange numbers due to the proliferation of mobile devices. Each cell phone, tablet, mobile hotspot has its own Mobile Identification Number tying up a telephone number. Back in the 90s houses had one or two telephone numbers, now with the mobile age houses average 5 numbers! Splitting the area code again would be a downright asinine idea. It is the equivalent of assigning everyone a new phone number. As a business owner that would be a disaster.” – Bryan Sokoloskie
