    Most people would have party lines if they couldn't afford phone service, most everyone had a phone line in their home. If you can afford a smart phone now, you can afford a home phone then.

    We used them when we actually had something to say to someone else rather than just prattling on about a load of rubbish and we took a shopping list with us rather than having to phone home to see what we needed.

    Use a public payphone / phone box, or use a friends phone and offer to pay for the calls.

    Find a pay phone, yell really loud, use a CB radio or if you were really rich, a cell phone.
