Indiana utility officials should take a look at phone numbers in the 812 area code, and people should not be required to dial 812 if dialing within this area.

What happened to modern electronic technology? Use the new area code by using new electronic technology as their own area code as has been done in years past.

I think the Indiana utility officials, whoever they are, should have knowledge or get help in doing this. This means those with cellphones will have to reprogram them, and those who don’t, including elderly people, will have to dial more numbers. What a shame.

Hopefully, someone will put their heads on straight, and this will not happen. Totally disgusting.
