Death Race 2008: Pay Phones Go Bye Bye


Posted December 3, 2007 - By Frank Meyer

Hey, anyone remember when there used to be payphone strewn across America, for people to dump coins into to make phone calls. This was before cell technology, of course, which has pretty much rendered the old fashioned phone booths obsolete.

Actually, scratch that. Not pretty much obsolete. Make that, totally obsolete.

Yup, AT&T says it will be completely out of the pay phone business by the end of 2008. In fact, there are about a million pay phones left in the country, down from a peak 2.6 million in 1998.

So what do you do if you’re in trouble, need help, and don’t have a cell available?

One word: DIE.
