This is just like a home phone with certain amount of minutes. All included in the price. We are not connected to the prison or jail system. We provide a virtual local number close to the facility where the inmate is housed. The inmate calls the local number to eliminate all long distance charges and it instantly rings to your destination phone anywhere in the USA saving you from outrageous long distance charges.
You must still have a prepay account with the jail or prison phone provider to call out to our numbers for us to ring your designated destination phone numbers. If the inmate does not have money on their account the phone call will not connect.
Our numbers are guaranteed to ring your phone when dialed (You are expected to test the numbers yourself to see if it activates first before giving it to the inmate)
For example: A Federal prisoner wants to call home; let’s say the inmate is in a facility in California, and home is in Vermont. He or she calls the number; say 1-919-555-5555 that’s long distance of course, since it’s all the way across country! Or maybe home in a different country. Columbia is long distance, of course. But what about somewhere in Venezuela or Moscow?
