Brilliant idea. I'd love to see them in places that still offer those overpriced payphones from ILECs as well as specialty companies.

Phil has nine questions for you. Among them: "should the payphone keeplogs?", and "I there a way to make calldebris (chat transcripts, call logs, voice mails), portable back to a user's client at home/office?"

To read his other seven questions, as well as to respond, let's go here.

Then come back to us and TalkBack what you suggested.
