Default For a local number do I just need the area code, or do I need the prefix?

If I were to switch to a local number... Would just the same area code be okay? Or do the following three digits mean something as well? I keep hearing it has to be local to that particular facility. But as long as it's a 443/410 number would that be fine as well? Right now with GTL I'm paying about $8 for a 20 minute call with an out of state number so anything would help!

Yes, you need the same area code and prefix (the next 3 numbers) as the facility to be a "local" number.

Yes if you get a local number to where your loved one is and there in MD you'll only pay 0.51 cents per call...

When I set up my local number Prepaid cell phone I used the jails physical address so I would know for certain that it would be a local number.
