Default Unlimited Collect Calls For $99.99 A Month In Canada???

Hello to my Canadian friends i heard about a new phone company and wanted to share the info since i know how expensive these calls can be...i was just talking to my boyfriend and he told me about this company that offers unlimited collect calling FOR $99.99 a month through Canada Relink. I havent signed up yet but it sounds way better then the phone bills i have to pay every month.

If the jail has a Phone card system once you sign up all your long distance minutes get charged to canada relink and you pay the 99.99 flat rate for the unlimited collect calls.

Thier contact info for anyone who is interested is:
www.canadarelink.com
and their phone number is 1866-735-4651

Hope this info is helpful!!!!

i've had it for a couple months now and it works awesome!! just make sure you have your payment at the 1st of the month or else they shut it off and i think you have to pay another 60$ to reconnect. It comes to 119.27$

Default what!

Shit, I am going to look into it, if this system works my bf will love you..lol, I have a cogeco phone and cannot receive collect calls, we (bf&I) hate it cuz he is always looking for someone to get a collect call and my bell phone was cut last year when he was in jail, cuz it was $800.00 and lord knows i couldnt pay that bill. So i really hope this works, i am paying about that much right now a month to different ppl for collect calls, plus my regular phone bill. so ya i am going crazy! lol

Is this true? I looked on their site and don't see anything about it. That would rock. In a month and a half I ran up $1200 in collect calls.

They do offer Unlimited collect calling to cell phones also. They are a real collect call long distance company. I know they do operate legally and are approved in all prisons in Canada and around the world, they do not do this forward stuff as that is illigal in prisons In Canada not sure about the U.S side but Canada does not permit it and this is why this company is good in Canada Give them a call They are really helpful on the phone, Trust me I looked into this company over 1 year ago to see if this was real and I could not find 1 single issue so our family went with them and here we are 1 year later and we have had no issues. I hope this helps you out , There company is under Canada Relink just google there name and you will see them under phone company.

Has anyone ever heard of a phone service called Vonage.? I am told that some of the lads in Kingston Penitentiary are using this phone company which offers VERY CHEAP monthly phone plans for about $30 cdn per month..... It appears that you can call FREE any local, long distance or international landline number. I have made inquieries and am just waiting to hear back.... Has anyone any experience with this company. I cannot post the web address but just google Vonage and it will come up for you.

Hi Branz87 you should be able to set up this service from your end so that your man will be able to use it to call you from the institution to which he is transferred. I am just awaiting the delivery of the adapter which hooks up to my broadband which is what reroutes the calls so that you are only charged at a cheap local rate. I am praying that this service is as good as it claims will keep you posted.

Wow is this company for real. They were so helpful when I called and I am so happy that I am able to get this service. My phone bill with Bell in 2 months averages to be about 250.00$ I have only been with bell since the 1st of March and have received a disconnection notice Today. Bell sucks.. even tho i honoured my payment arragements they send me this notice... I am still waiting to receive my long distance calling cards from them. BULL thanks for the good tip Carrie
