I have another question... If I pay for the discount phone service is that helping only me not the inmate? Is he still having to purchase a phone card to call or can I have a service where I pay for his calls also without sending money for him to buy a card. I hope this is making sense. He's in jail and will go to prison. So in jail I still need to send money for him to purchase a calling card correct? Then in prison how can he call where it's on me and I don't have to send money for a card or take collect calls.

Ask the inmate answer
The Discount Telephone Service helps whomever is paying the bill for the calls. If you are putting money on your inmate's books, then it would probably be beneficial to get more calls for the amount you've sent than less, right? Our service does not replace what the inmate has to do to make a call. They have to pay for the outbound call to the prison phone company. We just make that call cheaper. Inmost cases, the local call is a lot cheaper than a long distance call. Therefore, if the price of a call drops by $4 or $5 each, that is your money that the inmate is saving. Wherever he goes, we keep getting a new number for that particular location - at no additional charge. No one else does this, they will charge you to change numbers. If you are going to speak more than once or twice a week, this service will save you hundreds if not thousands of dollars over a short period of time. It is a must. If you are not speaking that often, then our $19.95/month fee is not necessary. If you are saving $4 to $5 per call, the math is in your favor and it becomes a big help over time. Plus, you will definitely get to talk more.
