Maintaining contact with friends and family is important for everyone’s health and wellbeing. Sadly, many prisons don’t make this easy. Phone charges of up to $14 a minute for long distance calls create a financial burden on inmates and the families who pay for these calls. A service from Globaltel helps avoid these additional charges by creating local phone number that an inmate can call that connects to your long-distance number. By eliminating the long-distance surcharge, inmates can talk to friends and family at the local rate no matter where they might live. You can set this up with Globaltel at Inmate Calls. To send mail to an inmate you can visit Jail Postcards.
