TelMate Inmate Calling

TelMate Inmate Calling

TelMate Inmate Calling charges about $6.00 per 15-minute call from the jail. We can save you $3.00 per phone call with a phone number matched to the lowest rate offered (if yours is not already at the lowest price). Folks that speak to their inmate several times a month will benefit greatly. However, if you are speaking once a month, this is not for you.

Instant activation, there are no contracts and the service is month-to-month, you get up to 1000 discounted minutes per month on the cheaper line (no-rollover minutes). But, you will have to place funds in Telmate or your inmate's commissary account to get the $3.00 per-call savings.

You can add money to this account online at MoneyGram (code 7163) or at the kiosk in the visiting room using the number provided by InmateAid. With our Discount Service, your inmate will get more calls for their money.
