This project probably started due to my odd obsession with quarters and coin operated devices.
I guess that the legends of the golden days of hacking and phreaking helped too. Added to the
fact that my cordless phones were never to be found when needed. So the decision was made I
needed a corded phone. After running a across a few look a like phones, I thought they looked
cheap. Then it hit me, why not buy a real one. I discovered that AT&T was removing a lot of these
phones, since it was not cost effective to maintain them. Once i learned this, off to ebay I ran.
With this being said
The legend begins....
Step 1: Obtaining the payphone
After a few minutes searching I came across someone selling a large quantity of phones for well
under market value. A few transactions later, my treasure was on its way. I suppose that there
are other ways although I won't recommend riping one off the wall of your local quicky-mart.
