How to save on prepaid collect calls from Mississippi correctional institutions:
Step 1: Sign up for a local number. The local number will be set to ring to your home phone or cell phone.
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 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!
