No dial tone

OK, so I'm trying to figure this one out.

Who makes a sticker that says "No dial tone" and puts it on pay phones?

Was it the company that owns the phone? Why wouldn't the company just fix the phone? Or if they aren't going to bother fixing it, just remove it?

Or maybe the phone actually does have a dial tone, but some prankster is going around putting on these stickers so people who do need a pay phone won't try this one? This occurred to me just now, as I'm writing this. Next time I'm on 125th St. in Harlem near 3rd Ave, I'll see if it really does have a dial tone.

Who uses a payphone anymore, anyways? Any predictions on how much longer they will be around?
