The cost of the calls is set by the contracted
phone provider. In addition to the quoted rate of the call, applicable
taxes and fees may apply. Rates subject to change.
Local calls: $2.80 flat rate, up to 20-minute call
In-state long distance calls: $2.80 flat rate, up to 20-minute call
Out of state long distance calls: $0.21 per minute, up to 20-minute call
A local number is not necessary for in-state calls and will not reduce the cost of the calls.
If you have an out-of-state number, having a WA
number will save $1.40 per 20-minute call.

When you receive a call, you hear a pre–recorded message naming the
correctional facility and the offender.
Then, you can:
If you will be setting up a pre-paid account, the call will be delayed and the offender will be asked to wait at least 30 minutes before trying to call the number again in order to provide you time to establish an account.
Individual facilities may allow offenders to place international calls if an advance pay account has been established. The offender may ask if this is allowed at his or her particular facility and what procedures need to be followed.
There is a 20–minute telephone call time limit. Both parties will hear a message at three intervals that tells them how much time remains (2 minutes, 1 minute, 30 seconds). After 20 minutes, the telephone call will automatically disconnect.
