Contour Payphone £1 Upgrade

Red Phonebox being refurbished

Upgrade your BT Contour 100, 200, 300 and XTRA to accept the new £1 coin.

The new £1 coin is set to be introduced into circulation in March 2017 the Royal Mint are producing 1.5 billion of the new coins, after March 2017 the old £1 coin will be quickly phased out.

It is therefore recommended that your Contour payphone is ready for the introduction of the new coin as soon as possible. Programming the new £1 coin into the contour can be carried out by yourself via the simple process of programming a Token into the Contour. To program a token you'l have to wait until you have some of the new £1 and you'll need to follow the procedure in the Contour user guide, you'll also need to know your PIN and have your keys available to carry out the procedure. If you dont' have a user guide you can download one from here

If you'd rather not wait until the £1 coins have actually been issued or you rather someone else programmed your Contour for you then X2 Connect provide a service which will do this for you in advance. You will need to send the product in to us, we'll reprogram the new coin for you and while the phone is with us we will also change the battery in the Contour (normally £12.50). You'll then be ready when the new coin is introduced.

Price £25.00 Excluding VAT and Delivery
