This depends on the facility and the carrier. There are about 30 companies providing inmate calling from their facility. Only one of the companies works like you describe in your question. The industry is hard to follow as some of the carriers are charging higher rates for local calls than they are for long distance.

We will also let you know what realistic expectations you should have the carrier.
