    Default google voice

    i am curious, is google voice really free? my inmate can call this number to my home and it won't cost anything? does anyone else use this service?

    I have Google Voice but I don't use it for my friend calling me from RCF. Google Voice basically gives you a local number to the facility which then gets forwarded to a number of your choosing. This is against the rules (as explained to me by CBS/Securus) because the call terminates at a different number than the one the inmate dialled and call forwarding is not permitted. If caught, this can result in your account being blocked and the inamte losing calling privileges. I have no clue HOW they would catch you, I'm just warning you what I was told.

    The calls still wouldn't be totally free, you would still need a Securus account and the calls would cost $2.95 for a local call for 30 mins. Thats a lot better than the $9 or whatever it is a long distance call costs!

    I use Skype, its the same principle but there is no call forwarding involved so Securus are ok with it. Its just nowhere near are convenient - I run skype on my iPod so can only pick up calls when I am in a WiFi area like my home or office. Other people get a second line on their cellphone with the local area code. You may wish to consider that if its practical for you - I'm out of Country so it wouldn't work for me.
