Default Phone calls in Kingston

My boyfriend is getting sentenced on Monday. He will then be going to an institution for 2 years before he is transferred to his mother institutions. Supposedly calls are $7 from Kingston to Toronto. I wanted to know what are some of my other options for a cheaper route i.e Vonage, Magic Jack.
Is it $7 because of the long distance?

Please chime in . Thank you

Default phone call

It's called pen@ pappers! He gets a call to let you know he is .Then save them for special times ,lf you hook in with John Howard there once a month.Lots of letters,they come in handy,at 1 in the morning,re read a couple of times help get you thru the night.Works alot better,then a phone call most of time.Then when you do call or he calls its really alot more special!!It was for me!! Best of Luck!!!!

Why 2 years before placement test in mother institution. Usually 2-3 months.

I agree with Sandry, why 2 years? I never had a call of $7/ min and we use Bell. Was more expensive when my son was in provincial!

There is a law that all those serving life have to serve the first 2 years in max. I assume that is what she is talking about, and why sometimes any little thing you post can share more than you think.

My son used a calling card that he got at his institution. He put money on it each month and each call was about 11cents a min.

Trappcall! 30 dollars a month unlimited calls, they give you a local kingston number and the calls are forwarded to your actual phone number... Its worked well for us so far!
