This is a mains powered, pre-payment phone which accepts 2p, l0p and 50p coins. Once coins have been inserted, a visual display shows the credit available at the start of and throughout the call. There are no speech interruptions when coins are put in during a call. Wholly unused coins are returned at the end of the call. Also, irrespective of the order in which coins are inserted, the coins which are kept to pay for your call are selected so as to maximise your refund.

If there is sufficient credit left in the payphone other calls can be made by pressing the follow on call button. This will give the dialling tone without collecting the payment required for your previous call.
