What I did was went and got a cheapy cell phone and when I activated it, it asked what zipcode I was going to use it in. I entered the prison zipcode and it gave me a local number to the prison. I hope this helps you out.

Not sure, but I don't think that's how cell phones work in Canada.



Check out fedphoneline. They assign a local phone number that is forwarded to your phone number.
