Cool $ limit reached, GTL

Today, for some reason my landline in MI began accepting direct collect calls (through Global telink) from WSP in WA state. We talked for 4 periods of 20 minutes so amazed to be speaking to one another and when he called back the GTL message then said "You have reached your $ limit..." Does anyone know if that will be permanent until paid (this is NOT a prepaid account), a daily limit, a block, or ???
Any help would be appreciated
Have you ever done anything you could have gone to jail for but didn't ? Think before you judge.

You will never have to look for me again becuz i'm holding your hand and I have your back and I'll wait for you forever...

First I would call good ol GTL. They will be able to tell you how to get the block off. You might have exceded your limit. If it's a direct account like I have they give you a 100.00 limit to start off with. Or you might have where you only get a certain number of calls a month I don't know what that account is called but just call them and they can check it out the number is 1877-650-4249.
Good Luck

You can call GTL and ask them to raise your dollar amount. That's what I did. Good luck.

Ive never heard of GTL raising your $$ amount the $$ amount is set by the prison. Set up an accoutn with GTL instead of having it billed directly to your landline
thats what i did this way i can manage my accnt online
Everytime i Reach my $100 amount I just pay about $45 online this way I dont go over
Hope this helps

My son needed to talk a lot during July - and he called for the first time. Once he started, he called sometimes twice a day. All of a sudden on August 1 the calls stopped. In his letters he said all he was getting was dead air. I called GTL and they said that the PRISON set a limit of $200 per month on the calls and we had reached the limit. I told her I didn't know that and she unblocked my phone at once. I told him he had to stop calling as much - but he could call once a week or when he had something that just couldn't wait LOL
