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
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.
Step 2: The Guts
survived with only cosmetic damages such as chips in the powder coat. Once armed with my
trusty can of spray paint, and screwdriver I set off to work. This pay phone is consisted of only
a few major parts, such as the Smart board, cash box, the keypad, and the coin verification and
relay circuits. The seller had included keys to all three locks, the faceplate and the cash box.
