Default GTL And Skype

Hi there, I live abroad and have been told that I could buy an online local number for MA through Skype and receive my b/f's calls on my cell phone. Does anyone have any experience with this? We had jetnumbers for a while but they blocked that. I don't want to get him into trouble! (or anyone else for that matter)
Any info??

Thank you!

Any service other than the one the prison uses is considered call forwarding or third party and are not allowed. Sorry.

If you use a VoIP option, I'd go with Google voice. You can get a U.S. based number. To avoid call forwarding that means you'll be talking on your browser as opposed to forwarding the call to your mobile or landline. But a forward to an intl number costs money anyway.

I use both Skype and Google Voice. When just making a voice call, I'd use Google voice. Free and better call quality.

That said, I don't know if it's allowed by the facility so be careful.

And again, those are not options that are allowed by any facility. You will be found out and your calls will be suspended. It's not worth losing calls just to save a buck or two.

See MA's phone guidelines here on page 16 and here.

Hell,

I have a question.

Does SBCC allow pen pal letters that have perfume scents?

Thank-you.
