It's because people either steal them or because they are attatched as trips said.

I suppose people steal them, but I just use my cell now anyway to dial for information.

It seems rare to find a payphone these days. I remember when they were everywhere and all used to have phone books.

Its because people steal them.
14 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Tuesday 8/28/07 - 6:50:49 AM EST (GMT-5)
Here none of the payphones have phonebooks.
14 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Tuesday 8/28/07 - 6:55:02 AM EST (GMT-5)
About as rare as seeing a payphone anymore.

Pretty much every payphone I've seen has had a phonebook attached to it.

Yes, I noticed this a long time ago.
14 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Thursday 8/30/07 - 10:21:26 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, and it seems like they are there are fewer payphones than there were a few years ago probably because of all the cellphones. They had one at my job, but it was out of order and now they are getting rid of it. Not everyone wants to or can pay for a cellphone.

Yeah same here. I've never seen a payphone without a telephone book attached to it.
14 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 9/3/07 - 10:04:59 PM EST (GMT-5)
i rarely ever see payphones anywhere, but when i do, they always have phone books
14 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 9/3/07 - 10:28:36 PM EST (GMT-5)
Here they are all attached.
14 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 9/3/07 - 10:43:03 PM EST (GMT-5)
They used to have them. I think times have just changed
14 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Wednesday 9/19/07 - 12:39:24 PM EST (GMT-5)
no, but usually the attached phonebook is either (1) about 8 years old, and/or (2) not intact

The few telephone booths that you can actually find around here are sans telephone book because someone has ripped it out of the holder. Dude...telephone books are free..what's up with that?!?

Yeah, they've usually been torn away.
