Many kiosks and restaurants also have public phones. The red phones take a GRD 10 coin and are used for local calls only. The gray phones at kiosks are metered and one can make long-distance calls from many of them. At the end of the call, one will pay the kiosk owner for the number of units used (no receipt for the call is issued).
The advantage of using OTE for international calls is that you won't suffer any surcharges on your international call. International calls from Greece can be prohibitively expensive, but at OTE offices (unlike at your hotel) one pays a direct rat that corresponds solely to the units used during one's call and charged at OTE's prices. Also, should the connection be lousy or fail altogether, one can hang up and dial again without being charged.
