The My Vconnect allows you to create a prepaid account and the calls are the same price as debit calls. Interstate calls are just .23 per minute. There is a $1.50 service charge per call but it is better than the collect price of 2.45 and .40 per minute.

I used myvconnect when my husband was in Devons and New York and they charge taxes and surcharges. Not sure what you were using efore so I can't really say it was cheaper. I got a local number to his prison and the calls came out to be around $6 but if he just uses his calling card they are about $.06 a minute. I will say that myvconnect does appear to be cheaper than regular collect calls.

What I suggest is use myvconnect and put like $20 on the account and see if it would cheaper for you. One good thing about myvconnect is that if your loved one moves or gets released they will refund your money or transfer it to another number or account.

I guess it all depends on what kind of a deal the prison/jail has with the company. I pay a $3.80 connection fee + 50 cents a minute + taxes. A 10 minute call is about $10 with vconnect for me.

It's a wonderful system NY corrections has switched to!!! It's still collect but the calls are much less expensive than other companies and just simpler in general.

Yes, I like it you can see how much you have and the calls are not that exspensive. it also lets you know when your low.

i had to get used to it because, i never put enough like $50 you get alot of calls 20 dollars you don't. one thing you should know when you use your credit card it charges &.something, not additionally it deducts it from the calls so try to add more like 58.00 and your good for a while.

In federal prisons, it is cheapest to send money to your inmate's commissary account for him to put on his phone account and then he can call direct, not collect. A local cell phone number is the least expensive route.
