Telephone Booth
Things would be very inconvenient even on a small island like Koholint without telephones. These phones are free, but whom do you suppose you can call?

Telephone Booths can be found all across Koholint Island. They are communication devices used to speak with Old Man Ulrira, who will give Link various hints on how to progress on his quest.[4]

When using the phone inside Old Man Ulrira's house, Link dials the number of someone calling himself the Bucket Mouse. After hanging up, a message appears saying that Link must have dialed the wrong number.[5]

Other Appearances

Hyrule Warriors Legends

In Hyrule Warriors Legends, Phone Booths appear in the Koholint Island Map in Adventure Mode. When one appears, a Grandpa Ulrira Item Card can be used on it to reveal hidden treasures for the space it is on.[3]
