Will "Magic Jack" Work for Collect Calls from Jail?


This might be naive, but can you give the jailed person a phone card so they could use that to call you? (10/09/2008)

Will "Magic Jack" Work for Collect Calls from Jail?

No it won't accept calls from any jail or prison. Something else you don't know is, I live about 15 miles from my step daughter, in 2 different states. Before she switched to magic Jack I could call her at no extra charge, anytime, now it costs me (the caller to her) 10 cents per minute. I found out the hard way. Now she calls me at no extra charge. If the area code is different, the caller gets charged. (08/08/2009)

We have a friend in prison, and I looked at T-Netix, the company that handles their phone calls. You can open a prepaid account with them that, they say, works with cell phones and internet calls as well as land lines. Now that I know that, we'll try MagicJack out.

I also found a posting on a forum about Global Tel link, which appears to be another prison phone billing company. They apparently have a program that works with MagicJack, too. So just look at your phone bill and find out what company handles the collect calls from the prison, and look them up online. (12/01/2009)
