Not Extinct Yet!

I spotted this payphone a week ago and it looks relatively new so they are not totally extinct yet. I wonder how much use it gets though.

Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission says...
For those who are facing economic hardships or who are a part of socially vulnerable groups (e.g. the homeless, those suffering from mental illness, and victims of abuse), payphones play a critical role in facilitating communication with government, employment, social, and medical services.

Hello, I have not seen a working one lately. It is neat you can use your credit cards. Happy Tuesday, enjoy your day!

One tends to see them more often here inside buildings that are publicly accessible.

I can't remember the last one I've seen. 'Course I can't remember much of anything these days!

Don't know if there are any left here. Sad to say, vandalism was a big problem. Then along came cell phones.
Have a great week!

Love it! It's been years since I've seen one of these!

At least this new one accepts credit cards! I'm the kind of person who finds my cell phone out of credit & no cash to hand!

They removed the only one we had in town, about a month ago.

Even if they are rarely used, I guess they still have a role for some people.
