Can they buy pre-paid phone cards or only collect, I'm out of state, so is there anything to have to set up, or is it just straight collect... sorry, as you can tell I have no real clue as to what I'm talking about here. Just needing some info, thanks!!

My Fiance was just sentenced to deathrow today...6-7-08 and has been shipped to angola. I know it will be awhile before I hear from him, but I'd like to collect whatever information I can until that time.
He was currently at a parish jail that used the infinity network, we had an account set up, he entered a pin to call me.
My question(s) would be, does angola use this same system? If so, will he just continue to use the same pin? Do I need to just call infinity and change which site he is at now?..and if anyone happens to know, what is the address for death row inmates,and what information do I need to write him, such as maybe his inmate number on the envelope, or possibly his cell number?

Ladies, Inmate calls from Angola are collect calls only. The phone company is Global Tel Link and sorry, but no calling cards - prepaid or otherwise can be used.
The inmates address does include the inmate DOC# and housing assignment; however, since your fiance was just sentenced and shipped to Angola it may take awhile to get that information. Try this link for a better understanding of the process...http://www.corrections.state.la.us/files/2008/03/Time_in_Prison.pdf
Hope this helps. Have a great day!
