PNM Plus 2.2.0 - the most important software. Serial number: 68B01AC6-3663C2C5


Firmware we found so far in payphones located around Phoenix AZ and boards acquired elsewhere. PGM ver. 5.3.3F worked with the most common English-only voice module with voice messaging (Elcotel_VOICE_en_V5_universal_27C010.BIN), in use since 1986 till at least 1997 (as stated on the labels). However, per the Bulletin #21, Voice Message Forwarding was already deprecated in firmware 5.2.4 (1993). The 5.4.4 worked with bi-lingual (en/es).

  • 5.3.3C_V3 is interesting due to disabled local telemetry (no access to registers via the keypad) and the voice message on incoming call is “Payphone. Not a billable number” instead of the typical “Payphone, payphone”. It is possible it was a custom firmware made for a specific carrier.

Do you need any EPROM programmed? Please let us know.
