Now that I think about it, no.

Of course.
8 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 10/29/12 - 4:52:53 PM EST (GMT-5)
I've used a pay phone to send a text!
8 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 10/29/12 - 10:50:31 PM EST (GMT-5)
Once.
I want to know how to send a text with one!
Tell me toaster!

(i think they have special texting-capable payphones!)

a few months ago i had to make a payphone call because my phone was not functional and i was gonna hang out with someone. but then it just went to voicemail.
waste of perfectly good change.
oh well, at least i had a blueberry donut that day...
and it was TASTY.

Once when my cell phone died I had to use one.

Ok. I was thinking she meant an old school pay phone.
8 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 10/29/12 - 11:29:03 PM EST (GMT-5)
I've sent text messages and made phone calls on them.

Only once.
8 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 11/2/12 - 7:24:24 PM EST (GMT-5)
I've used it a couple of times before I got my first cell phone. Not many left these days.

In America...
I haven't used a payphone since probably 2004 or so.

In Japan, I used one last year before I got my cell phone.

I think this is another one of those hidden "age tests".

I remember when pay phones were the only way to get into contact with my family when I was running late.
8 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Saturday 11/3/12 - 5:00:57 AM EST (GMT-5)
When I first left home, I used to go to the phone box to call home once a week.

Sure I've used one. Necessary evil - - think of the germs. Also, when I left Connecticut in 1992 they were still a dime. Now THAT'S pretty amazing.

Many, many times.
But of course I'm from a pre-cell phone generation.

same here.

One thing I miss about them:

Sometimes you'd be walking along and a payphone would ring! It was very exciting. Who would be calling a payphone?
8 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 11/11/12 - 11:06:27 AM EST (GMT-5)
I said no, but I just remembered I have. I've never paid to make a pay phone call, at least.
8 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 11/11/12 - 9:45:59 PM EST (GMT-5)
I have used a pay phone but the last time was years ago.
8 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 11/12/12 - 10:50:15 AM EST (GMT-5)
hahaa, I remember sometimes my friends and I would call payphones to see who would answer them.

I used a payphone once at camp to call my parents. That's the only time I've ever used one.

This is something I've never understood in movies! What use is it to call a pay phone? Who's gonna pick it up?

That's for when you have to say "I just have this one quarter but I have a lot to tell you so call me back at this number." I don't know how long a quarter would get you in pay phone times when quarters still existed.
