MUNDANE MYSTERIES: Do people still use payphones?

I can’t remember the last time I used a payphone, but they do still exist it seems. Ever since the inventions of cell phones and smartphones people have stopped looking for coins to call someone.

There are currently about 100,000 useable payphones left in the U.S., One fifth of them are located in New York. For comparison back in 1999 there were two million payphones.
