Bye Bye telephone booth

A sad day. The last one in CH goes to the museum! It was always useful to change into my superman outfit

Re: Bye Bye telephone booth

As already reported here, some telephone booths are still around. They just have no phone in it.

No more Superman? - Last working phone box decommissioned.

(Can a mod merge the thread )

Re: Bye Bye telephone booth

But there is a very solid plan by the Swiss government in taking away the booths. Now you are forced to use handy or the house phone and these can easily be tapped. So its basically a move forward by the State surveillance. So be very careful what you talk about on the phone-any phone. Its most likely that its all being recorded

Something tells me, they won't listen in on you for long, let alone taping.
