Many charge inmates up to $14 a minute to make a long-distance phone call. Fortunately, there is an easy way to provide the jail with a local number your inmate can call that will ring your phone and/or those of other family and friends no matter where everyone lives. An inmate can then make their calls using the local number rate while talking to friends and family long distance. This service is provided by Globaltel at Inmate Calls.
