Incoming Calls to Canadian Payphones The Payphone Project: Incoming Calls to Canadian Payphones

    Has anyone else found many payphones in Canada that accept incoming calls? A couple good ones I have found; call 604-278-9028, its a phone outside of a 7-11 in Richmond, BC. Should a decent flow of traffic around it. Or maybe try calling 604-872-9475, this phone is on the corner of West Broadway and Cambie Street in downtown Vancouver, I think this is a pretty busy location a lot of the time.

    I've been to Canada before and I have
    found very few payphones that take
    incoming calls. most of the kinds of
    Payphones that Bell Canada instals are
    sucky. So if you have found a Payphone
    that does take incoming calls you are
    lucky. All the different parts of Canada
    that I've been to I have only found about
    3 or 4(if that) that will ring back in.

    Where I live in Canada (Telus territory), and visit a new payphone whenever I can, I've found about 70 that will ring back when called. CJ, I assume you mean "Millenniums" are the sucky kind, they can ring, just not many of them, of the 70 I've found about 15 are Millenniums. To get a rough estimate of the number of ringing payphones in Canada, I've recored 641 numbers, 70 ring back, making it a 10.9% chance.
