In Minneapolis, USWest has Telecard phones everywhere, and vending
machines with bill accepters. The calls are also flat rate at $0.25.
Beware using the Telecard for a long distance call. I did one from
Seattle to Mpls and it was something like $3.65 for the initial charge.
Can Telecards be audited for usage? If a TLA black-bags my $25 Telecard
from my wallet, can they reconstruct what calls I made with it?
