Phone Cards Make Calls from Jail Cheaper vs. Collect Calling
one in jail? Hearing your
voice and knowing you are there to support them is probably the
next most important thing—to a loved one in jail—than
their “one call” is most likely going to be a collect
call, and a very expensive one at that.
You will receive the bill! In fact, some report single calls, lasting
a mere 15 minutes, costing anywhere between $3.00 and $10.00.
It doesn’t have to
be this way!
Buy a prepaid phone card online and give it to your loved one
in jail. Rates from
course, facilities have their own rules and regulations about calls
(number/day and duration), but you can quickly see just how expensive
a collect call can be.
buying a prepaid phone card, however, call the jail where your loved
one is being held and ask if phone card usage is permitted. If yes,
buy a phone card online from a trusted retailer
and you will receive a phone card PIN and dialing instructions
via email. This is something you can share with your loved
one during a call and the next call they make will be a lot less
expensive (up to 95% less).
