Would anyone be surprised to find that there are still semi-postpay coin phones in use in the U.S.? I found one while driving home from viewing the eclipse on Monday. It's an AE fortress payphone, with a semi-postpay instruction card. Has a dial tone and can make calls. Long distance calls are barred (I assume you would make them via the operator), and I didn't have anyone local to call, so I wasn't 100% able to confirm the semi-postpay operation, but I'm pretty sure it was still set up that way. The phone is in a really neat phone booth that is actually built into a corner of the CO building in Hampton, NE. Ringback can be activated by dialing the phone's own number and hanging up. That's about the only interesting thing I found in the couple of minutes that I had available to play with it.
Hey BinRev, this is my Third post. I was wondering if anyone knows how to do anything interesting with Wimactel Payphones. If you know any of these things, please post. *interesting toll-free numbers ...... http://www.binrev.co...box-empty-code/ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Alright, on to the post You cant red/bluebox them as the mics are muted. I haven't tried "Punching" a local call with a nail. (as seen in wargames) But I believe that the coin box is plastic. (cant complete circuit) I guess I could beige box them, but that looks very suspicious. And, the wires go strait into concrete. (Through the stand) There is a 32 digit code that works on most payphones to empty the coin box ( 24998-24001-29190-90467-59718-7429-087 ) ( I'll make another post about this ) but I don't think that that will work http://www.binrev.com/forums/index.php/topic/47284-coin-box-empty-code/ Here are some images of them. Wimactels have a lcd screen on them that says "Welcome, Please insert coin" and that kind of thing. If can do anything interesting, please tell! -whixrr
