The different number is the "special sauce" that makes the calls cheaper. InmateAid's computer algorithm determines the best price based upon the rate calculator on the phone carrier's website. Sometimes the best is a local number, other times it's a completely different state altogether. We don't make the rules, we use their rules to make your money last a lot longer.

Yes, they are calling from the jail or detention facility's landlines. The caller ID to you'll see is the phone that they call from. That number CANNOT receive incoming calls, it's enabled to only make outbound calls.

If you have the InmateAid Discount Telphone Service, your inmate will still be charged for the calls, but instead of costing $1.36 to connect and $0.66 per minute to talk, the entire 15-minute call will only cost 21 cents per minute or $3.15... huge savings. This is the ONLY way to save on calls because no other company can deliver the actual call except the one with the contract, in this case, Securus. The savings per call (of about $8.00 per...

Yes, they do, as do all other facilities. The magic of this program is knowing who the specific carrier is and what rates they charge for certain numbers. Please send us your current phone number (home or cell) and we will give you an honest estimate of the savings. Sometimes there are no savings but in about 75% of the cases, we can save you money.

You can do it either way. You can make sure the Securus account is funded (remember that they take a big fee for depositing) OR the inmate can buy time at the county jail which would bypass the extra fee for depositing. Just make sure you have an IA number so that you are getting the most for your money. No one at the phone carrier level will assist you in saving money, you can be certain about that!
