    Almost everyone has a cell phone now a days but when was the last time you used a pay phone? Do you still use a pay phone?

    I can't remember the last time I used a payphone. I think it was many years ago to a family member. I did have a cell phone at the time but left it at home.

    pro2A Hell, It's about time!

    There are still payphones?

    I would have thought cell phones made them obsolete by now...

    Mobile phones still have a disadvantage; you run out of power and don't have a spare battery, you're screwed. For that reason, payphones will continue to exist.

    I've never used a payphone but there are a few in my area that can be readily used when they are needed.

    I still see them around but I never give them a second thought, I can't remember ever using one before, myself :hmm: My grandma used to use them and she'd always make me stay in the little box with her so I didn't run away. Obviously this was a long time ago. :S

    I still see payphones about. And I still see people in them making calls.

    The last time I used one was years ago when my phone had ran outta credit.

    I haven't used a pay phone since I was like 10 or something when I didn't have a mobile.

    I used one once in an airport. It was a good while ago though. I'd say last millennium.

    Or you run out of credits/that help you use the phone.
    So another reason to use payphones.

    I haven't used one since I got my cell phone, but I still think their really useful since like someone mentioned the battery on your cell phone could die, or some people don't like having cell phones.

    So I don't believe their going anywhere anytime soon.
