Pay phones were disappearing and I was concerned about that for a while. As you know, it’s pointless for me to pay for a cell phone that I would only use in the case of an emergency. That’s a lot of bucks to pay every month even with a basic plan. A pay phone only costs a few cents and it’s all I need for emergencies. I’ve had very few emergencies in the last 20 years… thankfully.
We still need pay phones. Hey, cell phone batteries die. Cell phones stop working. Cell phones lose signals. Cell phones don’t appear in every kid’s backpack. Heck, many kids don’t have cell phones. Let’s hope phone companies keep pay phones even though they know cell phones bring in more money. The challenge is to find the best places to park a pay phone as there aren’t many and they need to be located where people would need them.
Inspiration for this post comes from Toby. Thanks. I agree that posting advertising on pay phones isn’t the best thing to do when targeting execs and business owners.
