International phone call?
 
Hey :)
My penpal - or Friend since I consider him as one - is incarcerated in Wisconsin and I'm from Germany. I'd like to talk with him on the phone.
It's probably the best if I get an American number.
Can you recommend any providers?
He doesn't have any money so I'll pay for it.
I already tried to find information but I still don't know how it works. I only found options where he would have to pay for it too.
How does a international collect call work?

Here's what the Commonwealth of Kentucky Department of Corrections says about prisoner phone calls.
https://corrections.ky.gov/Facilitie...formation.aspx

"The only way an inmate may speak with you over the telephone is when he calls you. No inmate may receive a telephone call from outside the institution. All inmate calls shall be collect and you are responsible for the charges."

Ask your pen pal to find out if there are any options for him to make international phone calls.

Try Truephone - I got an int. SIM with a British number as a basis plus an extra $5 a US number (try to get his area-code and even prefix). Important is that he's allowed to call cellphones.
I've been using this number for years no, never a problem!

Whenever I'm home in Austria I use the US number providor iplum. And it's working perfectly for years now. Never failed me. But you need to make sure voice-over-ip is allowed and possible at the facility he is in (also at the facility-phone-vendor).


Viel Erfolg

So my guys Locked up in California and I知 currently in the uk. I bought a USA number via sonnetel. You would still have to put money on his prison phone account so he can call out then you壇 have to set up a gtl account add the sonnetel number to the gtl account as you have to pay to receive the calls on your cell phone, but he値l be charged local rate as oppose to international rate so you値l get to talk longer for cheaper hope this helps x

Can you still talk like a normal Phone call?
I think voice over isn't allowed though x.x

Add credit to the sonetel number put like 」5 on it and you will be able to receive the calls with gtl.

There's already money on my sonetel account.
But his facility isn't available at GTL.
Or what am I supposed to do at GTL?

Iエm so frustrated... I was looking for different vendors/providers for hours and nothing seem to be a good solution. :(

MizzyMuffling 07-25-2019 04:53 AM

Luka, I'll be sending you a message...
