Do You Ever Use a Pay Phone?


Last week when I was visiting London for HTC's Touch Diamond launch, it dawned on me just how many bright red phone booths there are scattered around the city — even though the city has already removed about 30,000 since 2002.

Is it just me or have pay phones been slowly phased out in the US? The last time I found myself in desperate need of one was when I lost cell phone reception and I needed to extend my Zipcar rental. Other than that, it's just me and my BlackBerry, twenty four hours a day, seven days a week.

But then again, in the upcoming Sex and the City movie, SJP is spotted using a pay phone (which convinces me that they aren't ready for the vintage label just yet) — thankfully she's wearing gloves! Therefore, maybe in cities like London and NY, they are still regularly used? What's your take? Do you ever use a pay phone?
