Description:
Due to the mass use of cell phones nowadays, the payphone can be a rare find. Locate a working payphone and note the phone number.
Expanded Description:
The first question to ask is, why payphones? Maybe its simply the novelty of knowing the phone number on the corner, or just watching the decline of what used to be a common sight, but payphones are a record of an era before cell phones were so accessible.

All payphones in this category must be able to accept incoming calls and have a phone number. This is unfortunately becoming rarer over time but makes it much more challenging!

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

A payphone or pay phone is a public telephone, with payment by inserting money (usually coins) or a debit card (a special telephone card or a multi-purpose card) or credit card before a call is made. Telephone companies have called them, and tried (unsuccessfully) to get the public to call them "coin phones", because the term "pay phone" may imply that other phones are free.

Payphones that accept coins have been largely discontinued in some places, due to the high occurrence of damage to the payphone caused by attempted theft of the money.

Payphones are often found in public places, transportation hubs such as airports or train stations, and on street corners but their popularity is falling due to the rise in cell phones and the general unprofitability of payphone service. The abandonment of payphones by telephone companies has angered some people who consider them a communication staple for low-income and low-credit consumers.
Instructions for Posting a Payphones Waymark:
All payphones in this category must be able to accept incoming calls and have a phone number. This is unfortunately becoming rarer over time.

Note any details about the payphone and try to provide a photo of the phone and/or the area. Also you will need to post the phone number that you can use to call the phone.

The phone must be still in service to qualify as a waymark in this category.
Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:
Please update the status of the phone and whether it is still in service.
