Superman to change in the Men's room?

In the past decade the pay phone has been in decline as cell phones have gotten cheaper and smaller. Telecom giant AT&T has just announced that they will be exiting the pay phone business by the end of 2008. AT&T expects to hand off their pay phone business to independent contractors but they could ultimately get bought up by AT&T's competitors such as Verizon, and Qwest if they don't make the same move to relegate the pay phone to the technology cemetery.
In places in rural and remote areas where there is no cell phone coverage, pay phones are still essential. If these areas lose pay phone service then there potential danger to residents and visitors to area that are not serviced by the cell phone carriers.
