Hello, my sister is at the WTF ( women's transitional facility) in Redwood city CA. It works with securus . My 15 mins.call are $5.00. I have a local number if I get the inmate aid will this make my calls cheaper?

Ask the inmate answer
When Securus is the company with the contract for all inmate outbound calling and to tape record the calls, you have to look carefully at the per-call price because they are doing things differently than the other prison phone carriers..  Securus has a rate calculator on their site and we use it to get you the BEST number for inmate calling - and now the local number isn't always your best option.  Regardless, you have to use them to receive calls. The choice is HOW MUCH you pay them for a single call.If we know your number and facility, we can get an honest estimate for you. If their price for a call to your number is $5.00 per call we are VERY confident that we can get you a number where the call price at most will be $3.15 per call - flat rate. You will need to register the number we provided - with Securus (just like you would your regular number without our service). If you save $2.00 per call, you have to decide if paying us $19.95/month is beneficial - meaning that you would have to be speaking to your inmate at least 2 times a week to make our service worthwhile.
