7184372299 @ 47th street and 13th ave Brooklyn NY

Someone stole the coinbox from this phone. The buttons are difficult to push, but the phone works.
The line card says to call 211 for repair/refunds, but when I dialed 211 it asked for a coin deposit - not like I would have lost my money, being the coin box is gone, but I did not have a quarter on me at the time, and felt that that should have been a free call. Too bad, I really would have let Met Tel know that this phone was vandalized.

Oh, also - rings 2x then goes to modem.

*Met Tel tells me that "I need to contact the customer who owns the payphone" meanwhile it says Met Tel on the line card. The lady who I just spoke with also seemed very rude, and said I could report it to the police department as well. I advised her that it is not my place to call the police department, that I was merely trying to be courteous and advise the owner of the phone of what I observed.

Need to edit some of the responses to called numbers

I called most of these phones with Google Voice. Unfortunately Google Voice does NOT pass audio before supervision, so any calls where I indicated "might accept incoming calls - rings" may be deceptive, I just randomly dialed one of the phones listed as such, and I got the NIS recording, so I will have to redial all of those numbers to determine if any or all of them are forwarding to the NIS recording.

All done. Just one phone gave me "we can not complete your call at this time" with several attempts, but that recording was coming from my carrier, and not an error from the phone that I was calling, so I will have to try that one once again with a different line when I get a chance, other than that, all the older posts should be up to date as of today. Strange to see so many payphone's saying that they are out of service when you try to call them.
