Unfortunately, it seems Verizon is to begin shutting down the White Plains #4ESS, starting in March, and by the 30th, "Any traffic sent to WHPLNYWP06T will not be completed." . The replacing tandem isn't, as many of you would have expected,a VoIP tandem, but instead, a 5ESS. It's sad to see Verizon shutting these down; they always seemed to me like a "specialized" switch, to be handling long distance traffic and all that. Now it's just another 5E. Fortunately, as far as I can tell, AT&T doesn't show any signs of doing anything like this yet, though, and they're the primary owners of many 4Es .

August 1980 - March 2007
EDIT: One thing I'd like to mention is that the prefix is 914-394 there, but there aren't that many working numbers that terminate to the tandem. You must have Verizon long distance service to reach it, or else you'll reach a recording that really starts to show the switch's age.
