712 Trimphone[edit]

This section is written in a chatty comedic style unsuitable for an encyclopaedia - was it cut and pasted from elsewhere? It contains unsubstantiated anecdotal material which isn't mentioned in the main Wikipedia page about the Trimphone. Should it be cut? Earldelawarr (talk) 14:46, 21 March 2011 (UTC)

Hi, I agree, but I've asked the poster of the story about Trimphones being used in telephone kiosks to confirm the source. I'll give him two weeks. We could make this a much shorter piece as there is a main article about the trimphone. Retrowow (talk) 18:06, 18 April 2012 (UTC)

I've reduced this article to a summary and removed unsubstantiated material. Retrowow (talk) 18:25, 12 May 2012 (UTC)

This article is a dog. It's mostly uncited material which is written is a very unencyclopaedic style with loads of POV. (talk) 18:31, 20 February 2013 (UTC)

Yes, it sucks. Certainly needs refs too. I've restored the 756 section though, because the UK development (and lag behind the US) is significant. The 756, with the three keypad layouts and the legacy LD keypad, should be described though. Andy Dingley (talk) 18:59, 20 February 2013 (UTC)

Indiscriminate images???[edit]

How are they indiscriminate? They are all clearly labeled, and add considerably to the narrative. (talk) 06:34, 30 November 2014 (UTC)
