At present, mobile phones are replacing coin box telephones more and more.
Coin boxes are generally installed in public places, for example in transportation nodes (railway stations, airports) and at cross roads of populated streets. Coin box telephones are placed in closed boxes (telephone booths), semi closed boxes or simply under a shelter. In some countries (like in Switzerland) there are separate telephone booths for smoking and non-smoking people.
Many modern telephones also have additional functions, for example functions for sending electronic letters and/or SMS messages. A separate terminal located near the telephonic instrument also may have these functions.
Many of the modern coin box phones work on prepaid cards (Telephone card). In some countries, coin box telephones accept credit cards also.
There are coin box telephones with rotary accumulators, which are capable of issuing the change.
Emergency calls (fire safety, police etc.) are free of cost.
