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.

WOW! Thanks Man, I've been looking for a realistic phone booth, you have really outdone yourself!

If you have a request please explain it thoroughly! (At least one and a half paragraphs & supply the needed pictures / meshes, or else I will throw it away without looking at it and I will not "PM" you that I will not do it.)

Fantastic! I've been wishing for something like this since the original game!

So have I....and when I came to the conclusion no one was going to make one I realised I'd have to do it myself.

Absolutely - and you are welcome to upload your own recolors too.

The only thing I would not like is for my work to be uploaded to a pay site.

Ooh, brilliant! Looks much more like the ones we use, thanks! Before I download though, is this a replacement or another buyable option? I.e, will I have to delete my existing replacement first?

Please don't PM/IM me with requests

My booth doesn't replace or over-ride anything in your game. You will still be able to use the original Maxis booth or any replacements you have downloaded for it.

I can't believe that I missed this phone booth. I love the blue one. This is great.

Update: July 2009-I am back now to make invisible and tranparent recolors again in sims 2. You can pm me if you want your objects to be invisible and transparent from now.
