I haven't heard of any facilities that allow regular phone cards to be used. From what I know that they refer to as phone cards they have money on their account and like that they don't call collect to whom ever they are trying to reach so they will be able to get through. They have to buy them through the store they have in the facility.

In the facility my guy is in, a 30 minute card costs about $20. I don't have a land-line he can call collect on, so this is the only way he can talk to me. The phone cards are on their commissary sheets to order.
