Best Reason Not to Have a Cell Phone: Courtesy Phones Around Town

Best Reason Not to Have a Cell Phone: Courtesy Phones Around Town

Call us old-fashioned, but we don’t own a cell phone. Too much hassle and just a little too precious for our sensibilities. And really, who needs one, when there are so many courtesy phones around town? Inside each Central Market, Whole Foods, Kinko’s, and Austin's own Wheatsville Co-op, you can find a little-used, 100%-free, please-dial-nine-for-an-outside-line, public phone. There’s even one in Trianon, a little coffee shop on Far West. With all these locations, there’s practically a free phone in every corner of the city. So next time you need to make an emergency call (or just find out if you’re bringing the guacamole to a party), take advantage of the courtesy phone, our city’s gift to Those Without a Cell Phone.
