With the invasion of cell phones and smart phones in the market, public pay phones have almost become obsolete.

Do you remember when was the last time you used a public pay phone? Was it because you didn't have a mobile phone or was it an emergency or some other reason?

A few months ago. I didn't have a mobile (it was broken, and it has taken a lont time for the new one to arrive and get activated) and I needed to call home.
I have never used a pay phone.
What!! you haven't lived, quick go find one!

About a year ago, and boy! was I grateful for it.

Left my mobile at home..needed to call my son.
Oh wow - 4 years ago! When I first came to AU and had no phone, I used a payphone to call my relative in Sydney!
Four years ago at LAX airport when I needed to call my husband to let him know that we had reached safely.
A couple of months ago, my kids and I were walking on St. Kilda road and we spotted a public pay phone. I stopped and showed the phone to my children and told them this is how it was done a long time ago. They spent about 15 minutes playing with it and thought it was archaic that you had to stop and talk rather than talk while walking.
I don't think there are that many public pay phones around any more. I see them at airports, but at other places, they've almost vanished.
Years and years ago when I was at uni and no one had mobiles in those days.
A pay phone?

What on earth is that? LOL
