A public telephone.

A phone box, or telephone on a stand or wall. Usually you pay to use them, often only via a pre-pay card.

The phone amenity may be indoors inside some other amenity e.g. in a hospital, but the tag indicates a "public" telephone, available as an amenity for the public to use (so not the receptionists' telephone in a hospital)

How to map

Place a node Node where the telephone is and tag it with amenity=telephone. Where several telephones are arranged side by side, arrange several similar nodes side-by-side.

Note: The tag is unlikely to be used on an area Area since telephones occupy a small geographic space.
