Payphones being vandalised in every part of the world. I got this picture from Bay Post a local Australian newspaper reporting on the vandalism of their local Telstra payphone and if it is viable to have it replaced again after it's been vandalised 12 times in as many Months. You can read the article here. If anyone from Maloneys Beach reads this, please if you can give me the number I would like to call the box to catch the perpetrators some how.

During the reporter’s seven-day surveillance on Queens Boulevard more than 100 people deposited a total of $52 (calls still cost a quarter, that much hasn’t changed—though there's been a small movement to make calls free). Most were men, and they ranged in age from 18 to 62. Some were unemployed and couldn’t afford a cellphone, others didn’t have their cellphones. “Cellphones have not killed the business,” said Mr. Steiner, 62, the former president of the Independent Payphone Association of New York. “It certainly has reduced it.”

Funny thing is I've never seen one vandalised. But they are built like tanks after all.
On the main A470 route that runs down through the middle of Wales. We drove for ages being reaching this phone box. Here it stands sweet as daisy in God's country among some cottages and next to the communities bus stop. Rings nice and loud. You'll also notice from the attached notice board that it's written in both English and Welsh.

Number is for the box in the middle. And you get plenty of tourists
snapping them. It's placed very near to the famous Covent Garden.
