Phone of the Day: Nortel Millenium Desktop Payphones and Yours Truly at the Sheraton Eau Claire Calgary Alberta

On my Wife and I’s honeymoon this past July, I spotted this Nortel Payphone in the lobby of our hotel.

These were unique Payphones they accept credit card only and are built out of the body of Nortel M7310 Norstar phones.

I’ve seen these phones in places everywhere from shopping mall seating areas to campgrounds to hotels.

Pay phones with credit card readers are still quite common in Canada, and they were exclusively manufactured by Nortel under the Millennium brand name.
