BT PAYPHONE 190MP & 190SC
|Payphone l90MP/Payphone 190SC
The Payphone 190MP and Payphone 190SC offer you all the benefits of a payphone and all the convenience of a normal phone. They are ideal for supervised locations like restaurants and hairdressers’ salons and will sit neatly on a counter, table or shelf
Just tap in your personal identification number and you can use them as you would a normal phone, without having to put money in the coin slot.
Both these payphones have a cash box capacity of up to £25, take l0p, 20p, 50p and £1 coins and are available in grey.
The differences between the two
The Payphone 190MP (meter pulsed) charges exactly like one of BT’s public payphones and allows your customers to get through to the operator on 100.
The Payphone 190SC (self-contained) differs from the Payphone 190MP in the following ways:
It DOESN’T allow your customers to get through to the operator on 100 (although you can when you’re using it as a normal phone).
The visual display unit shows your customers the amount of credit they’ve got left in SECONDS rather than PENCE.
When the person at the other end answers, your customers have to push a Press On Answer button before they can carry on a conversation.
Although the Payphone 190SC is delivered set to the standard BT public telephone tariff of l0p for each dialled unit, you can program the time allowed upwards or downwards to influence the return you get.
Safety and space considerations
In order to reduce the possibility of your Payphone 190MP or Payphone 190SC being accidentally knocked over or stolen, it can be screwed to a counter, shelf or table-top when it is installed.
Carry on talking without a break
Your customers can carry on talking without a break whenever they have to put more money in the Payphone 190MP or Payphone 190SC.
Although coins can only be inserted one at a time, they just drop into the payphone without the need for any pressure to be applied.
Incidentally, any wholly unused coin will be automatically returned to the customer as soon as they replace the handset.
Keeping accurate records
Keeping accurate records is easy with the Payphone 190MP or Payphone 190SC.
Each model has an in-built coin trip meter which will show you the accumulated cash total (in pounds and pence) that your customers have put in the cash box since it was first installed, as well as the amount that has been put in the cash box since it was last opened (also in pounds and pence).
