I use Securus Technologies previously Correction Billing Services. Its fairly cheap for us any way. I got a phone # with the same area code he is in and the calls are like one dollar for 30 minutes so the money last. On the website the have a tab to were you can rate calls to see how much they will be for you...

The other post, the one by the actual member, seems to both be the official prison system's regular billing compant and also seems to only be usable in Texas.

i have an almost local phone nr and i did register that nr with securus but he cant get through with it.

Recently I changed my number so it's a local number. Didn't use any outside vendors. My husband usually calls my cell. I have AT&T. The calls went from $7.00 for 15 minutes to $1.50 for 15 minutes. Now we talk at least an hour a day.

I use that too, but our calls are $2.95 and they're only for 15 minutes. What'd I'd give for 30!

Anyway, I didn't get a local number (thank goodness because they're moving him lol).

I use Prisoncalldirect http://www.prisoncalldirect.com/index.htm not sure if they would save you money, I am not from the US and CBS told me they can't help me so this was my only way.

Has anyone used googletalk?? My boyfriend is telling me to use this and I can't figure out how to set it up. It helps you get a local number so the cost goes way down?? any info on this would be appreciated

The jail my baby's at goes through inmate calling solutions. Its not 2 bad its $4.77 for a 20 min call but the taxes is how they get you.
