Phone Provider for Kansas State Prisons

ICSolutions is the inmate telephone service provider at the facility where your friend or family member resides. ICSolutions offers you the option to set up one of two account types that enable you to fund (prepay for) calls placed to you by an inmate.

A Prepaid Account enables you to purchase prepaid phone services for receiving phone calls on one specifically designated telephone number (a home phone, cell phone or business phone). The inmate can make calls only to that designated telephone number.

A Debit Telephone Account enables you to purchase prepaid phone services for the inmate. The inmate can then make calls to any telephone numbers that are not restricted by the facility, including your telephone number. 

Friends and family should visit to set up an account.
