It's about time!
Since the invention of the internet, the phone book is practically obsolete and finally being phased out.
New York, Florida, and Pennsylvania all approved Verizon's request to stop printing the White Pages this month. Virginia will be the next state in line, making 15 states who have stopped the directories or in the process.
And it makes perfect sense! The use of phone books have dropped from 25 percent down to 11, from 2005-2008. So, 2011 is looking pretty sparse!
It can only help the environment, so we're all for it.
Will U miss the phone book?!
