Pay Phones - Youre Never Far From One

By: Dennis Jaylon

Have you ever thought what your immediate reaction would be in the event of a total battery breakdown on your mobile phone and an urgent call on your immediate agenda? Your best bet would be to dash towards a public phone booth and carry out your important errand. However, pay phones serve a very vital purpose not only for such emergency situations, but also for the usual instances when people need to make calls to their family and friends.

The scenario in the UK depicts a strategic allocation of pay phones at the most potentially gathering zones like the airport, train stations, shopping plazas and other crowded places. The idea here is to successfully cater to the emergency needs of the people by placing them at an easy reach. These phones, most of which are being maintained by the British Telecom, have gloriously fulfilled the needs of hundreds of pay phone users across the nation. This has led to further proliferation of these phones by other service providers as well.

These pay phones are usually well shielded within small glass shacks to enable the user to experience a more comfortable talk devoid of the noises that lurk outside the frame. Users can make national as well as international calls through these phones and use coins, phone cards or even their credit cards for the call payments. Perhaps to provide a more elegant touch to the whole experience, today's pay phones come across as highly stylised equipments along with more attractive cubicles.

So, the next time your mobile phone runs out of the power juices and you need to make a call, you might as well sway with the style waves through the modern pay phones. And by the looks of it, you can never be far from one of these phones, as they can be found on most street corners and commercial locations.
