+441293739713, Gatwick Airport, South Terminal, United Kingdom, RH6 0NN.

Odd looking payphone model. It can make Skype calls with webcam and all. Rings nice and loud and will get attention from the terminal's main information desk. Have fun.

+442086420444, Sutton Rail Station, High Street, Sutton, Surrey, SM1 1JA

A great addition to the site here. This payphone is right by the ticket counter at this busy station. When there's a queue you'll be sure to get noticed. Look out for the days the Epson bourse races are on. This station gets packed.

Some real classic pictures taken at London's Leicester Square. It depicts a normal evening at this night life centre. Sadly the boxes are no longer there after a remodelling of the square.

+4989216193, Taxi Rank, Notburgastraße, Nymphenburg, Munich, Germany

An awesome one here to prank. There's nearly always a queue of local taxis waiting her for a job. Calling the number makes the box at the rank ring. The driver of the first taxi will spring to get out and answer it.

+4420885649953, Seating Area Near WH Smith, Gate Level, Terminal 2, The Queen's Terminal, Heathrow Airport, London, United Kingdom

My best gate side payphone here yet. Payphone is positioned right next to the seating area. Time this right and they'll be loads of anxious passengers waiting to board their flight. The ringing will be hard to ignore.

+442087591693 & +442088974743, O/S The Perfectionist Cafe, Terminal 2, The Queen's Terminal, Heathrow Airport, London, United Kingdom.

Two great payphones with working telephone numbers just by a seating area in this busy airport terminal.

+442079308998, Charing Cross Subway, Strand, London, WC2N 5HS, United Kingdom

Loved how someone took it upon themselves to box off this payphone with street signs. The payphone is in a destitute location and it's ring will be heard by people leaving the Charing Cross tube station. It's very close to another payphone which I listed here in the same subway ( ).

+442087699765, OS 374A, Kiosk, IPCO, Streatham High Road, London, SW16 6HO

Spotted this phonebox on a nice sunny day. Had two guys rolling carpets beside it. Think it's a regular occurrence, seeing as it's right by a carpet shop. The corner the phonebox stands on is very busy as there's an important station right around the other side of it. Great for rush hour calling.

Payphone Bank at Arrivals, Narita Airport, Tokyo, Japan

Coming straight out of the arrivals gate you'll see this first row of awesome Japanese payphone. I pictured this tourist take a few trials in using one. He did eventually make his call and demonstrates that payphones are at least still needed in airports. I never worked out the public numbers to dial into these payphones despite seeing numbers on some information cards. If anyone knows how to decipher these and figure out the numbers, please let me know.

Santamaría Bullring (Plaza de Toros de Santamaría), Bogotá, Cundinamarca, Colombia

Payphone scene outside the wonderful Bogotá bullring in the heart of this Capitol.
All the official public payphones I encountered here have no dialable telephone number. There are however a whole host of private payphones that are reachable.
