When I was younger I'd see these on just about every corner. Now days You're lucky if you run across one. And I just so happened that I did this morning.Which is crazy because there's still a lot of people that don't use mobile phones. In some cases they don't even know how to use them.
I think It would be a great idea for them to keep them around. You never know when someone will need it. Most times if you ask someone to use their phone they'd look at you like your crazy. And watch you like a hawk while you're losing them.
I wonder if they're now considered antiques? Do you still see them in your area?
