Inmates may place collect calls to approved numbers. When an inmate enters the Florida prison system, he/she will have an inmate telephone account established with a Personal Identification Number (PIN) and be provided with instructions for placing collect calls to family and friends. Inmate phone lists are limited to ten (10) numbers.
Inmates are authorized to initiate collect calls to personal land line numbers and personal cell phone numbers. Collect calls to businesses are prohibited. Before an inmate is permitted to place a collect call, she/he must submit the telephone number, name, and address for verification and activation prior to being added to the inmate's approved call list.
The inmate telephone system contract has now been amended to allow calls to personal cell phone numbers subject to verification and approval of the requested number. Inmate requests may be submitted beginning May 1, 2012. Updates to an inmate's phone list to add personal cell phone numbers will be processed as noted in paragraph below. Family and Friend members with a cell phone should be prepared to submit a copy of their cell phone contract to the inmate for validation.
Approved call lists can be changed every 6 months, or sooner under specific circumstances provided in the instructions. Every new number an inmate requests be added to the approved call list must be verified and activated before the inmate is allowed to call.
