Everyone I know owns a mobile phone. So, who is using pay phones these days? I hate to bring stereotypes, but a young, Asian girls are renowned for their mobile phones and texting non-stop. This makes this scene even more curious. Bill Payphones seem to be important in emergencies, such as 9-11 when the cell networks were blown away by the volumes. Also people without cellphones use them daily. Airports seem to have heavy use of payphones…probably because of crappy cell signals and all sorts of EMF running through the air.
