TELECOM Digest OnLine - Sorted: Pay Phone 1+ Coin Long Distance

Pay Phone 1+ Coin Long Distance
Mon, 12 Feb 2007 21:08:03 -0600

A while ago we talked about 1+ coin calls from pay phones (station
calls paid by cash). Many pay phones no longer offer them.

I was in Newark NJ Penn train station and had to make a long distance
call. The Verizon pay phones there had 25c a minute national long
distance (4 minute $1 minimum).

The question was who handed the call. I heard no announcement, so I
don't know. It was kind of hard to hear. The card on the phone said
calls were handled by Verizon or "Verizon Select". (I believe
"Verizon 'Select'" is rather pricey.)

Sorry I don't have more info. But it was a standard Verizon phone,
not a cocot.

Why this isn't offered at other NJ Transit stations I don't know.
