What’s the 411 on 411?

Thanks to the Internet, many people with landline phones who still rely on the operator for assistance, won’t be able to starting in the new year. AT&T has announced it is discontinuing both 411 for information and dial 0 for assistance starting on January 1st. Both services will be dropped in 21 states. Other telephone services have already phased it out, and AT&T already got rid of it for wireless customers a year ago. The ease of the Internet and diminishing landline use across the country has been making these services obsolete. AT&T says it has only 8.5 million landline customers in the country.
