Landlines are becoming a thing of the past as most only use cell/smartphones so AT&T, in an effort to cut costs, has managed to kill white pages in about 75 different markets. While this will not affect yellow pages, areas that approved the changes are required to pay $1.99 (plus air time) for each 411 directory assistance call. Customers can also request a CD-ROM of home listings.

The latest Public Service Commission to consider sending white pages only to those who request them is in Louisiana, who will decide by May 23. At the very least the plan will save a few trees.
