PennyGirl in the future you really need to check your facts before posting on the internet. There is a possiblity that you can be sue for liable and or slander, so I implore you to be accurate with what you post.
US Inter/Com does not own LLDI, nor does US Inter/Com charge anyone for payphone calls or collect calls. The onwer of the payphone sets the rates for collect calls, coin calls, third party calls and any other type of calls made from his/hers payphone.</B>
Before Making A Call on a payphone
1. Determine which Operator Service Provider (OSP) is handling your call. Each public telephone provider must post the name,address, and toll-free telephone number of the OSP on or near the telephone. Also, the OSP is required to identify itself at the
beginning of the call before the consumer incurs any charges.
2. Determine the rate you will be charged. The OSP is required to notify the caller of his right to obtain the rates that will be charged before the call is
connected and billed. The caller will be able to follow the voice prompts such as
pressing a button or staying on the line,or the caller can phone the toll-free
number listed. This will give the caller the opportunity to hang up if the price is
3. Determine how you will pay for the call. Unless you plan to use coins to
pay for your call, you will be required to call collect or to charge the call to your
calling card, home phone, or a third party. If you plan to use your calling
card, be sure to follow the directions given by your long distance company. If
you don’t follow the directions correctly,the call may be handled by the OSP.
The OSP will bill you at their rates and not the rates
I hope this helps someone to understand how payphones work.
