If someone is in county jail how do I know if they have money for phone calls? Can they call me and I accept charges or do they have to have money in order to call?
The inmate either needs money on their books to make an outbound call, or they can make a collect call (the MOST expensive way to the recipient) OR someone on the outside can arrange to place money at the phone carrier (called Advance Pay). The third option normally has two pricing tiers and this is where InmateAid can make a substantial difference. Some pre-paid calls are as much as $15-20 per 15-minutes, InmateAid can get the same call for $3.00 or less.
