If your telephone number is local to the jail, then our service will not benefit you. The service at the jail has a contract making them the sole provider for outbound inmate calls. In most cases, a long distance call from the jail is more expensive than a local call. We get folks who are out of town a local number (that rings on their current phone, changing nothing). The phone provider for the jail will ONLY charge for the local call - InmateAid pays for the long distance portion cutting out the majority of the cost of the call. The difference in the two per-call prices is why people use our service. We can match your number to the jail and see for sure if you are local or long distance before signing up.
