Pay Less For Jail Call Services

JailAid is committed to helping people save money on jail calls. From how to put money on your phone for jail calls to receiving cheap inmate calling services we can help. When an inmate makes a call to your cell phone you may pay a hefty price per minute without our assistance. The GTL and Securus inmate calling rates are unaffordable when you are calling long distance without an added service like GlobalTel or SecurTel to lower the cost. Prisons generally charge an extra fee on top of the cost of a regular local or long distance call. According to the FCC, some prisons have charged up to $14 per minute to inmates making long distance calls. Fortunately several companies provide services that help lower these costs. They generally do this by creating a local phone number that an inmate can call that will then route the call to the long distance numbers of the person they want to call. These services can save inmate families thousands of dollars each year by making it more affordable to stay in contact.

Compliant Jail Mail Services

Prisons often have strict rules for how inmate mail must be addressed and what letters can contain. Mail is often delayed because letters sealed in envelopes must be opened and inspected. This can sometimes delay important messages and create a lag and disconnect between the lives of families and the life of an inmate. It can be awkward to write an inmate about things going on outside in hope that this information will provide subject matter to discuss during phone calls, only to discover that the inmate hasn’t yet received the letter.  Sending regular mail structured as a postcard with a photo and properly addressed is a great way to maintain contact. The format is easier for children and easier for everyone to make time to send without sitting down to compose a formal long form letter. This also eliminates the hassle of buying paper, envelopes and stamps and finding a postal box to drop the letter off. Companies providing Jail Mail Services:
