The telephone service at all of the TDCJ Prison facilities is a company called Securus. Securus' rules are often different than the rules at the jail so they can maximize the profit per call. Normally, the cell phone carrier should have nothing to do with the approval process of an inmate's calls. The process is supposed to approve a person, not a telephone type or it's underlying carrier. Some people use InmateAid's service to get a local number for cheaper calls AND to not have to disclose that they are using a Metro phone. It is not a consistent rule and that is why our answer gives you two options. You can try and see what they say, or get a local number from us and go the route that we know already works for thousands of people.
