    Default Can prisoners call to cell phones?

    I know this may be a stupid question but I've just heard so much about setting up a sprint account and my husband hasn't called me yet. Just wondering if he can call me collect if I have a cell phone.

    I have a cell phone and my husband calls me all the time i have not set up an account or anything but.... im in michigan and in some prisons in michigan they have prepaid cards that the prisoners can buy then call you no matter what kind of phone you have all he has to do is add ur number to his calling list and then u send him money for his account. Not to mention in barley cost anything to do it this way

    yes I know they can here in NJ because my fiancee does I mean a lot of people dont have land line phones any more so they have lifted that band a long time ago. I'm not sure about everywhere else but I do know I talk to him every night and he calls me on cell.

    In FL DOC u cannot call cell phones, they say it's for security reasons..BUT when my hubby was in county jail awaiting transfer, he was able to call my cell phone, I had to set up a prepaid acct w/amtel for him to call. It all depends on what state you're in & whether he's in state or county custody.

    Well if you are Plaxico Burress, apparently you can have a cell phone.

    http://www.tmz.com/2010/05/03/plaxic...ison-new-york/

    Personally I think you folks that have inmates in a NYDOC facility should petition for your loved ones to have cell phones. If Plaxico Burress can have one, your loveds should be able to have one too...in my mind this just shows that if you got $$ you get special treatment even on the inside. And I don't think that is right.

    go to GlobalTelLink.com. They can set your cell phone up to recieve calls. You will have to keep an account open with money in the account in order to receive calls

    i don't know if this will help you but there is a company that lets you get calls on your cell phone. You just have to pay for the calls in advance

    In Texas you can only get calls to a landline with their system.
    Never give up on something you can't go a day without thinking about.

    Can I get calls to my cell phone in South Carolina? I set up an account with Correctional Billing Services, but they never ask what facility will be calling you, so I don't want to waste my time paying them and sending in the information if it won't work. Anyone know?

    Im in PA and can have my man call my cell so I dont see why not. We have a company here that covers the entire PA DOC so maybe you have a similar thing in SC. Id check out the state specific forums they may be more helpful. just keep scolling down on the main forum page till you see South Carolina. Best Wishies and welcome to Jpay

    Thanks! The SC Forum is somewhat of a ghost town.

    High Desert in Nevada allows inmates to call cell phones. I know because my loved one called on my cell phone on Saturday
