Arizona Department of Corrections: Phone Calls
Are you paying more than $1.60 per call for calls from an inmate in an Arizona State Prison?
If your answer to this question is "Yes," SaveOnPrisonCalls services can help you reduce the cost of the calls from Arizona state prisons.
To save on the cost of prepaid collect calls from Arizona State Prisons, you will need a local number. Having a local number for the inmate to call will save between $2.60 and $3.50 per call on in-state long distance calls; save $1.55 per call on out-of-state long distance calls.
Securus is the phone provider for AZ state prisons. Securus can detect call forwarding and will block the phone number if call forwarding is detected. To successfully use a local number, you will need VoIP phone service. A broadband internet connection and a standard phone are required. Do not use the call forwarding feature. If you have a smartphone, there is a smartphone app available that will allow you to receive the calls on your smartphone without using call forwarding. Pricing as low as $8.33 per month.
How to save on prepaid collect calls from Arizona State Prisons:
Step 1: Sign up for VoiP phone service and choose a local number.
Step 2: Give the inmate the new phone number. Have the inmate attempt to call the new phone number to get it into the prison calling system. For State and Federal Institutions, the inmate may be required to add the new number to the list of approved numbers.
Step 3: Contact Securus Technologies, the phone provider for the institution, and set up a prepaid or advance pay account for the new number. Some phone providers require a separate prepaid account for each phone number. A prepaid account is only necessary if the inmate cannot purchase phone credits from their commissary account (telephone debit account).
Step 4: Start talking for less!
