What Is This?

This is an ongoing collection of questions about payphones that are most frequently asked at The Payphone Project web site. These questions usually come via e-mail, but I also keep an eye on what search queries send people here to get an idea of what people are looking for. Not all of these questions are actually “frequently asked” but are included in the spirit of providing basic information about the world of public telephones today.

This site is not intended as an authoritative FAQ document for the payphone industry. For a broader FAQ about the world of public telephones in the United States please visit the American Public Communications Council.
