Good afternoon.

I have a client who would like to have a pay phone in their break area
for employee use. The COCOT vendor they were using wasn't making
enough money, and so they pulled out.

They're not looking to turn a profit; they just want to give employees
without cell phones a chance to call home etc. without having to open
up an outside line to long distance charges, abuse, etc.

They would like to put a simple pay phone in place -- something like a
"Model 909."

o What kind of federal or state (of Florida) regulations would apply
here? A google didn't help, but perhaps I used the wrong search terms.

o What kind of drawbacks/pitfalls would they be looking at by going
this route?

o Does anyone have a better idea of how to set this up?

o Does anyone have any experience with programming this type of
payphone? I was hoping to find the documentation on line, but no luck.
