424 AOKed

The California Public Utilities Commission has approved the 424 area code overlay in the South Bay, which means that soon, 310ers will have to dial eleven digits even to call another 310 number. This isn’t a big deal on land-lines, but if you have a 310 area-code cell phone, those extra three digits all the time may end up causing minor thumb cramping over the course of a few years.

Of course, the Los Angeles media world waits, wondering if Beverly Hills 213 will take an editorial stance on this issue.
