The phone service gets a local telephone number for your inmate to call you on - still using the prison telephone company to run the number through. The local line makes the calls at the lowest possible rate, because it is now local and not long distance. You will have to get the number to the inmate either by sending a letter or getting a message via a visit or one last "expensive call". Unfortunately, the prison staff will notRead more
It really depends on the facility, they all have a separate set of rules. Inmates get a handbook when they are first processed which has all of the rules and regulations. The telephone privileges are in this handbook. If you would like us to try and find out what the particular rules are in your inmate's situation please let us know where they are incarcerated.Read more
We estimate the letters take 1-3 business days to reach the prison or jail. Once inside the facility, the staff opens each piece and inspects the contents for contraband. Sometimes this process delays the actual delivery to the inmate. Depending upon where your inmate is, it could be as strict as 300 minutes a month or they can have unlimited calling and access. Tell us where your inmate is and we will let you know their policy.Read more
Yes, you still need to do business with the prison phone company - their role is to monitor all of the calls and they have a monopoly arrangement to do so. Instead of registering your old "long distance number" and paying $15-18 per call, you register the new "Local number" and Global Tel can only charge the local line fee - approximately $1.75 per call.Read more
The Discount Telephone Service is easy to use - we get you a local land line which allows your inmate's call to you become a local call (from your inmate's facility location - area code) instead of long distance. But there are other steps involved besides simply getting a local land line from us. There is always a prison phone company that you'll have to deal with. When you register with them, you'll use the local land line number weRead more
Wherever GTL has the contract, it is a monopoly. The only way around their high rates is to get a local line from InmateAid.com. Our lines will cut the price nearly 90% per call. Boycotting is not an option because even with our service you will have to pay them for the number to work. It will save you hundreds of dollars per month.Read more
You can call our offices 866-966-7100 or go to the Discount Telephone button on your Account Dashboard. Select the state and facility of your inmate, enter the telephone number that you want the new LOCAL line to ring on and which plan best suits your calling pattern - monthly or quarterly. The payment process is like any website you've used before, it's fast and easy. We will email you your new number within an hour or so.Read more

There are many good bits of advice shared on InmateAid, this is especially helpful as we have so many Arizona State Prison inmates using this service - with Securus charging families $7-8 just to deposit money, this is a great way to eliminate that extra charge from the cost of talking to your inmate. Use the ASPC calling cards which are in $10 increments - the calls cost only $1.84 each and there are no limits to the amount ofRead more
There are NO companies that have "true" unlimited calling. The prisons contract with ONE phone company only - they are a monopoly and can charge huge long distance fees. But, they can only charge a nominal or small fee for a local calls.Securus is one of these prison phone companies. They are very aggressive in their fees. The ONLY way to beat them is to get a local line and set up the calling account online separate from your longRead more
