    Default Phone calls using inmate prepaid account

    I am someone who has had to deal with GTL for over 4 years...all the ups and downs and I know what it is like to be able to talk to our loved ones and yes in the beginning I had to pay high costs, and it is so much nicer now because I can talk more for less money. I have found a way to save on inmate calls with them being $1.00 or less for a 15 minute call.......If you'd like to learn more about this I can help...Please send me a private message....
    thanks
    Sue

    I would like to learn more as well - the calls are not permitted on his end yet, but I wish to be proactive on this (given how expensive the whole calling thing can be......) Many thanks!

    My husband is in prison in Kansas and when he puts money on the phone it only cost $2 to talk to 2 hours...really good. The only thing is, I HAD to have the same area code as the prison, otherwise it cost $2 to connect and $1.79per minute.

Im changing cell number to a number in Chillicothe so hopefully we can get the same deal. I have a Tracfone and get triple minutes so it good on both ends!!

    I am pretty sure. I dont have to worry about changing the number for a couple of months but I'sll call and see. Dont forget that you still will be using minutes. But with Tracfone most of the phones will give you double minutes and if you go online and type in "tracfone bonus minutes" there are websites with codes that you will have bonus minutes added each time you purchase minutes.On my phone the bonus minutes are doubled too. If I purchase 120 minutes (which I think is like 20 bucks)and get 40 bonus minutes with the codes that equals 120+120+40+40=320 minutes. But Im upgrading to triple minutes soon!

    I just called Tracfone and they told me that you can change your area code up up to 4 times a year. Just call customer service and they can help you.

    For those that are getting the calls for the .96, is that by using Google Voice? I just went to set that up but there are no Google Voice numbers available in Rockview's zip code.

    ok girls.... how do I change my area code to 614 when I live in SC for right now? He can't call me from RIC because it's too costly!! I put money on his books for him to get a minutes card, but the guys are telling him it isn't enough to cover the intial fees and then the connect fee... Im going crazy here.... letters are awsome, but I need to hear his voice!! I miss him so much I can't see straight!! UGH!!

    go to google and make a gmail acct if u dont hav one yet. then go to thru its settings to setup a google voice acct. u want to set up a new acct with a new number searching the 614 area code. after u choose ur number, u want to forward all of ur calls to ur cell phone or house phone. its going to take some time to do it but its worth it! i can talk to my fiance for $2.11 a call nights and weekends.

    Actually I can help find any area codes in the U.S. using Google Voice its easy to setup and access, so if anyone needs help just message me or ask and I will help you out. I didn't understand it at first, but after you go through the process - you will be glad you did it because the calls are MUCH MUCH cheaper!!!!!
