The phone service at
the Spartanburg County Jail in South Carolina is
set up through bid process. Global Tel*Link has the contract for
all inmate outbound calling and to tape record the calls.
Therefore, you have to use them to receive calls. The choice is whether you pay
GTL for a long distance call or a local call. Depending on where you are, we might be able to save you a lot of money.
Here is how it
works... We get you a local line matching the rate center of Spartanburg. Your inmate
dials this local number and it will ring on your current phone.
You will need to register the local number with GTL (just
like you would your long distance number without our service) who
will charge you only for the local call. If your inmate can buy
calling cards from the commissary, you will not need to go online and set this
up, they can dial the local number direct with the card. InmateAid
takes care of the long distance portion of the call.
their price for an inter or intra-state long distance call ranges from $4-15 per call.
With the local number, they usually charge less than $1.65 per call - flat
rate. The difference in two call prices is why people use the service. Let us know your number and we will give you an honest guesstimate of what the cost per call would be.
