Can I call the jail where my friend is and ask them to put my number on his call list? or do I have to just write him and wait till he gets the letter

Ask the inmate answer

You can try calling and see if a staff member will do it for you. It is against the rules in most places, but sometimes if you're nice they will make an exception. The alternative is to write them a letter or postcard to let them know what's up.
