Absolutely NOT. Inmates caught with a cell phones could bring additional federal charges and additional time added to their sentence.

Subject: Offender phone calls

Our program will bring the cost of each phone call to the lowest possible price - but it depends on the facility, where it is located and who the current provider is that services that facility.

County jails in general are not "long term holding facilities, but that does not mean they are necessarily short term either. An inmate could be in county for a year or two before a trial, a sentencing, a transfer or a detainer.

The inmateAid telephone service works at ALL facilities where it can get a local number. You will still use the service at the jail, but if your telephone number is long distance (area code is not the only determinant), having a local number from the same rate center as the jail will in most cases save considerable money on a per-call cost basis.
