REGARDLESS of who your cell phone provider is, you can NOT get collect calls directly on your cell phone. You CAN set up a debit account with CBS and receive calls on your cell. You may want to look a little further, but most states do not permit calls to go to cell phones.

Yes, you can collect calls on your boost mobile but you have to set up a pre pay account. Try to call these phone #'s and see if they can help you.
800-483-8314 Global Telnet
800-666-3947 PCO

Good Luck!!!

Hope this helps,
Shannon

I don't know about Boost, but I have sprint, and I set up a prepaid account with correctional billing services so that I am able to receive calls. The minimum to open an account is $50, plus an $8 processing fee. After that, you can add money to it (the minimum is 50 with the 8 processessing fee), or you can pay any amount through Western Union Quick Collect, or you can do like I do an mail a money order of any amount.

Regardless of the area code, if you can make alternate payment arrangements for the call, a prepaid account or if your loved one can pay for the calls from their funds, calls can go to ANY phone.

Like I said before, if you can set up a prepaid account or your loved one can pay for the calls from their end, you can receive calls on any phone, but NO cell phone company will direct bill for collect calls from prison.
