    Does anyone know if this one still works? Where you put the money in, dial the number then when it starts ringing you hit the space below the keypad very hard with your elbow or kick it, then the money comes out of the refund slot, but still registers in the phone. I haven't got round to trying it lately, but a few years ago when I was in school we did it all the time. It would be interesting to know if anyone still does this.

    Python, payphone trick doesnt work anymore on the newer installations. On the older installations BT are very crafty and have installed what is effectively a trembler device to detect excessive external pressure on the coin transfer mechanism. This flags up to the local BT engineering co ordinator. More than 10 hits and the phone is replaced with the new type. Note that phone busting is an offence under the latest version of the telecommunications act and BT are obliged to report it to the local police. Be careful if you are determined to try it - you can end up in the magistrates court for the sake of a few pence!
