Telephone cash cow

Telephone Booths in Kelowna
I know that many people do not realize there are VERY few phone booths in Kelowna because of course, most people have cell phones. A friend of mine was in Kelowna and needed a ride so called me collect from a pay phone. There is a new company called “WiMac Tel” that has taken control of most of the pay phones in Kelowna.
Whatever you do NEVER accept a collect call from anyone in Kelowna. WiMac Tel charges $13.00 PER CALL, just to have an automated voice say “Do you accept this call?”
I will be writing a letter to CRTC also, but I wanted to make people in Kelowna AWARE that they should never use a phone booth in the city. My phone bill was over $300 from WiMac Tel this month. What a rip off!!
