Why Does Downtown Dallas Have NEW Pay Phones?

Have you seen the newly installed “Pay Phones” in downtown Dallas?

Talk about a piece of America’s timeline!

Before you walk up to one and try to make a call, keep in mind… you can’t, according to CBS 11.

Justin Childress, one of the designers with the WonderPhone project, says the phones have pre-recorded messages, which you can listen to for FREE, by pushing one of the 10 numbers on the keypad.
