Hi I was wondering if you can call cell phones... the problem is we are now 2013 and I don't have a landline. I know collect calls couldn't be made to cells. It has been 3 weeks and I managed one visit (14 hour drive there an back in a day) was planning my next trip the weekend he was moved for assessment but not a call yet

I need to figure out the options I have. ... Also if he is in assessment and moved again..which will happen do you have to re-register (is it him who registers). Any info is much appreciated.

Yeah, TrappCall works with cellphones too. The number they give you has to be local for the person calling it, so if he moves, you need to tell them to change your number.

You can register at freephoneline.ca and get a Canadian number in his prison area. It will be cheaper for him to call if he's in federal. The number can be forwarded to your cell phone.

With freephoneline.ca you have to have a canadian number to forward it to. There are certain citys in which it will work. If you have a iphone or android phone you can download an app called dellvoice(fongo) its powered by the same people as freephoneline

I use trapp call, its very cheap and you get an email notification when youre balance is low. Also on line you can check and see how many calls you have left ect.

Anyways point of this post is I have sifted through some posts looking for phone deals.
As it is costing my more than I can afford.
Yet I know how important it is for him to be able to talk to family.

So which is the better deal
Inside Phone
or
Trapp Call or is that just American
or
Vantage cell Phone

My bills are now just down to two hundred and that is to much. I nearly fell of my chair when the first bill came in over four hundred......omg

Please let me know your thoughts on which one is the better deal.
Don't include the tooney Tuesdays as the perk as my grandson would like to call everyday sometimes more than once. I need a general overall choice.


thank you
