Public Phones in Israel


Public Phones in Israel

There are still some public pay-phones scattered around, usually lacking a booth (just a phone on a pole). These phones use a Telecart, a pre-paid plastic card that can be purchased at post offices and some stores, as well as ordinary phone call cards. The telecarts are at the moment being phased out by Bezeq, the country's premier phone provider. Some phones also accept credit cards, but they are very rare. In Jerusalem especially and in more Jewish-religious areas you will find public phones to be very common, as the more religious Jews tend to frown on the new mobiles with Internet access etc, resulting in a situation whereby every person with a mobile is automatically assumed to be on the Internet 24/7. It is also possible to find privately operated pay phones that accept (outrageous) payment in coins and/or credit cards. Be warned that most storekeepers will produce their own phones (for the above-mentioned outrageous fee) when asked, in absolutely no relation as to whether there is a (much cheaper) public phone just 10 seconds away.
