Thanks for the direction. I worked on it this weekend and now have the keypad working. I also started on the other steps and will post when finished. Thanks again!

I read through the tutorial and followed the steps. it dixnt work at the pins, and there isn't the same grey cable to cut. I did remove the extra board, but connected and took a picture of it to show that in addition to the phone. I did some more searching, mine looks like this phone, he/she provided a short explanation on how the keypad pcb could be modified. https://www.dnalounge.com/backstage/src/phonebooth/index2.html I may try that unless you have any suggestions.
Fuzzy, thanks for posting your payphone hack, very neat creation out of some old technology. I am newer electronics but I thought I'd try to "hack" using an old payphone I had. When I opened the keypad and used my multimeter against the circuit board, I could not get a reading on a continuity test. It's probably just me (not knowing what I am doing). The keypad on my Western Electronics looks a little newer than the phone you hacked. I am unsure on where to go to next. Would you be able to take a look at these pics and point me in the right direction? Thanks!
