Hello everyone,

New guy here from West Michigan. Currently work IT for the Aerospace industry with one of my many hobbies being payphones.
I hope to help out others here with their payphones plus I am happy knowing I am not the only one with this obsession.



Hi, and welcome to the forum!

Welcome. There are a few payphone experts here to help....Doug



Dad's side of the family is from West Michigan - I need to go back to visit, as I spent many a summer at my Grandparent's house.

A phone phanatic since I was less than 2 (thanks to Fisher Price); collector since a teenager; now able to afford to play!
Favorite Phone: Western Electric Trimline - it just feels right holding it up to my face!
