This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This is a functional, walk-in phone booth for your community lots. It has its own interior lighting and the glass panels are separately recolorable from the main body.

I have made recolors in a variety of styles. There are several different window designs including a smashed version for your inner city lots.

The mesh is actually smaller than the one from the Maxis phone booth.

The interior light uses one of the Maxis base game lights so this aspect of the booth should be compatible with any EP combination (or just the base game).

Only download one .zip file! The compatibility notes below show which file you need based on the latest EP which you have installed.

Compatibility Notes
BG, UNI, NL, OFB - modern_phone_booth.zip
Pets - may not work correctly
Seasons - modern_phone_booth_SEASONS.zip
BV, FT, AL - modern_phone_booth_BV.zip

Mucho thanks are due to TashaFaun who cloned the BV version of the Maxis phone booth and helped me with testing.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! (because real phone booths don't need to look like doggy chew toys).

This is great, it actually looks like a phone booth, unlike that stupid maxis one. Thank you soooo much!!!

Just what I needed. The stock phone booth is too new. This one is perfect for the '80s.

An error has occurred. Unimplemented trap.

You wrote that Pets may not work correctly. Does it apply only for those with Pets as last installed EP? I have all EP's up to AL & MG. I will download the one with AL compatibility and I hope that the fact I have Pets installed won't affect my game when I'll use that Phone Booth...

wow, this is so much better than the default design. Could you possibly recolor it to look like the phone booths in London? You would be my hero!

Is there a way to re task this object (and all it's glory <3) into a changing booth? I've just been shopping around for a place for my prospective superhero Sims to change into their alter ego's without having to do it in a suspicious changing booth.

Probably, but I dont know enough about Simantics to attempt this myself. If anyone else wants to have a go, be my guest. It would be pretty cool cos then sims could also woohoo etc in the phone booth...

Do we know if it works when you have ALL Of the expansions? NOT all the stuff packs, but all the rest, with "Fun with Pets" being the latest? Would LOVE to use this. Looks way better than the in-game one.

As far as I know the only issue is likely to be if Pets is your latest EP...if you have other EP's / SP's after Pets you'll be fine.

This is brilliant, thank you so much! It looks almost exactly like a modern BT phone booth, so it's perfect for my 'hood.

I love this i wish that If you could slave a phone booth mesh to a dresser and then realign the positioning of it to make my sims change while inside of the booth. (It would be cool for a battle themed lot.) if you don't mind me trying to mod this or i'm new at this type of thing so it'll take me a while. or if some kid benevolent super cool person could make it for me and all who like superheros that would be way cool too.

This is looks great in my game, however, it doesn't work. It's purely decorative. My sim had to walk home because this was the only phone booth I placed on the lot.

I have every EP and SP all the way up to AL and M&G.

I have had this Phone in my game for sometime, and have just worked out that it is the cause of a problem I have been having, I downloaded the Seasons version, and every time the Gypsy tries to enter a community lot I get an error report, also get the report when anyone tries to walk past a business lot.

It really is a nice object, and I had it on every community lot, but I have tried all three versions.

I have Base Game, Nighlife, OFB, and Seasons.
