I saw this payphone still hang on the wall in campus area. You should insert a coin to call someone. But, one coin is not enough to contact cellular number. Not many relatives still use home phone. So, no body use it nowadays. Look! Even there is a signature on the payphone. :D

Is payphone still used in your place?

Did you see any other old stuffs in your place? I'm expecting you share them in this photo challenge with a brief description. Hope you like it. ^_^

=== Note: PLEASE read also my correction in my reply to AG. :D ===

Thank you so much and Have an awesome month! ^_^

There is another payphone photo from Grace in the comment. ^_^

That was a good time!

But yes, I don't want to stay there again :D

Lol...., Roman! :D

Good to know that. I hope you don't wish to stay there anymore, though. ^_^

You are right, Onee! :)

I enjoyed staying in a clinic. It was new experience for me. ^_^

What??? NotAClue. Did you count them or something? *kidding :D 746 payphones is wow in this time.

Yeah, I realize it. It is probably not only because of one cannot handle, but it is probably more about not having any interest. Maybe one day a mobile phone is as tiny as a fly :D and I will feel more comfortable with the technology in my era. ^^

It's very grateful to have a good country which still provides a free call for its citizen. So many thanks for sharing this, though unfortunately you were not able to take a pic of them. ^_^

Sure, you should, Roman. Experience is the best teacher. ^_^

But, I don't know why I think you enjoyed that biting. :D :D *kidding. I wonder if it left any scar on your body. :)

Dear Onee,
the other day I was walking to my doctor... it's a short walk, practice isn't more than 1,5km away. And because I had this topic in my mind... I was looking for pay phones... I found 5 pay phones on my way there and back. Some had nice box, some had rain shelter and some were only hanging on pillars. Couldn't make a nice photo, like Grace, though... because as you know... no cell phone at hand. :-)

And I looked it up. We have still 746 pay phones in my city. My city isn't one of the biggest... so other cities might even have more. And now to your question... why these old phones everywhere?? Because ... there are many people, especially older people ... and poor people who can't afford a cell phone. Or they cannot handle the technology anymore... One day you will get old (I mean really old), and then you will find it not so easy to to handle the modern technology... it will be very different from everything your are used to now... 

Another reason is, of course, all these pay phones provide free emergency calls. Although we have for this also free SOS-telephones almost everywhere. Greetings.

I will be more careful, Onee!

Thank you!

Oh My God! :| 

So, the story was true... Take care of you, Roman. Be careful more next time.
