How to Save on U.S.
Federal Prison Phone Calls

Benefit of a local number

U.S. Federal Prisons limit federal inmates to 500 minutes per month of phone calls. At the local calling rate of .06 per minute*, those 500 minutes would cost $30 per month. At the long distance rate of .12 per minute*, those same 500 minutes would cost $60 per month.

Sign up today to get a local phone number, then pay only .06 cents per minute through the BOP Debit Calling Plan.

Having a local number for the inmate to call will save $0.06 per minute or $0.90 per 15-minute call. Save up to $360 per year on the cost of the calls with a SaveOnPrisonCalls local phone number.

What you get:

► One phone number local to/from the prison
► Calls routed to your U.S. or Canada home/cell phone
► Your existing number stays the same

How It Works - Cheap Phone Calls

How Can I Save On Calls From Prison Inmates?

Sign up for a local phone number to the prison. When the inmate calls you using the local phone number, the call will automatically be routed to your existing home or cell phone. The cost of the call charged by the prison will be reduced to the lower local rate instead of the high, long-distance rate.  Note:  not all prisons and jails offers a lower local rate.

Why Do I Need a Local Number?

Some prisons and jails in the United States and Canada have considerably lower rates for calls placed to local numbers.

Local Rate - .06 per minute
Long Distance Rate - .12 per minute

Local Rate .50 per call
Long Distance Rate - .11 per minute plus .22 connection fee

Varies by state. Most state prisons have a flat rate for calls to any U.S. phone number.

What Do I Need to Get Started?

Someone in a correctional facility that you want to talk to.

A phone number guaranteed to be a local call from the correctional facility. (Merely having the same area code DOES NOT make it a local call.)

An existing home or cell phone account.

A credit card, debit card, or pre-paid card, or checking account

A prepaid (advance pay) account with the institution's phone carrier;  i.e. Globaltel Link, GTL (now known as ViaPath Technologies), Securus, ICSolutions, PCS,  OR the inmate's ability to use the inmate phone debit account.
