What's a payphone? Payphones are phones found in public that are coin operated. You insert quarters, dimes or nickels and can make a call anywhere after inserting the coins and dialing a number.

Payphones used to be found all over the place but are disappearing very rapidly.

Most businesses these days have removed them from their establishments by now.

At /r/Payphones, we're here to remind people of their endangered existence and soon to be extinct existence.

They're a technology that should be used more often.

We allow pics, videos and discussions, and news about payphones including abandoned ones.

It works, but it faintly plays music, and no dial tone.

Pay phone payments

How did the pay phone operators know how much money was being put into the pay phone on the other end?
