Spectrum won't stop calling me

I'm going to update my phone number with them. Do pay-phones still exist?

What's a pay phone?

Pay phones pull in about $300 million in revenue nationally.

20,000 pay phones are in New York.

Pacific Telemanagement Services has 20,000 payphones in the US in areas with no cell coverage, such as the Yosemite Valley.

Victor Rollo owns 170 pay phones in San Diego County, which is surprisingly larger that you probably imagine consisting of a great deal of inland desert areas with no cell coverage.

"Every time there's a disaster our phone use goes through the roof. The pay phone system stays intact for the toughest part of the disaster while the cell networks go down."

Rollo's phones in hospitals and along the US/Mexico border near where people illegally cross are the most profitable.

(No doubt those border phones make a lot of extremely profitable international calls.)
