a mere 15 minutes, costing anywhere between $3.00 and $10.00.

in jail. Rates from

(number/day and duration), but you can quickly see just how expensive
a collect call can be.

one is being held and ask if phone card usage is permitted. If yes,

one during a call and the next call they make will be a lot less
expensive (up to 95% less).
