No, there are no programs at $8.95 that includes international calling
Subject: Offender phone calls
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.

Yes, that is true, 225 area code is long distance to 318. In fact, there are several places where 318 is not local to all 318 numbers. Email us and we will check the numbers for you. 
Subject: Offender phone calls
You can, but be nice when you call because they do not have to do this for you.
Subject: Offender phone calls
As many times as they have money for the calls. Email us the facility where your inmate is located, in most cases, we can get you a phone number that will dramatically reduce the price of every call.
Subject: Offender phone calls
No, absolutely not! The company that claims that is simply taking your money. The ONLY way to get a discounted call, is to have a phone number matched to the lowest rate that the phone carrier at the correctional facility has a contract with. Bradford County Correctional in Troy PA uses a company called Global*Tel Link (not to be confused with the company with a similar sounding name Globaltel) and all calls must go through them and pay them directly.
