If this article looks familiar, it’s because it was originally posted on the SmartCanucks Tech Deals blog. If it doesn’t, why aren’t you reading our geeky sister site? 😛
Not too sure of the last time you’ve looked at a payphone (if you’re like most of us, the year likely started with a “19”), but it looks as though they’ve undergone a bit of a strange transformation as of late to add in some features from their mobile competition. Now, from select Bell payphones, you can send text messages for 10 cents.
To make things easier these payphones come equipped with a full QWERTY keypad. It appears as though these started springing up shortly after Bell increased their payphone rates for local calls to 50 cents.
Have any of you tried this feature out yet? And just how useful is texting from a phone that can’t receive a reply?
