        Question: Do you have any older working black pay phones that actually work off
                         of accepting coins, i/.e. one I could retrieve coins with a key from a
                         home phone line?
           Answer: You can use any of our pay phones as a bank and retrieve the coins from the door
                         portion. The only pay phone that we have that actually requires coins is the
                         COTBK. These phones were controlled by the operator in the days of their use,
                         which we no longer have today. It is best to call and talk to a real person on
                         this matter.
        Question: Is this phone for sale or what? The display at the web site provides
                         little information - with the phrase, "This is all the information we
                         have for now".. when was "now"?
           Answer: Yes, all phones on the web site are for sale. The phrase "This is
                         all the information we have for now" simply means that we have not added any
                         additional information to the basic description of the item. Some phones will
                         have more information such as a short history or answers to common question
                         about the phone. "Now" was when you clicked on the item.
