Welcome to Prison Talk. It will depend on the phone rules at that prison. I'm sure similar issues come up regularly, so he needs to find out from his counselor what needs to be submitted before he can call your Mom's phone number. Maybe Mom needs to include a letter authorizing inmate calls to her phone? Whatever they require for approval is what you will have to send.

It will be up to the rules at Draper, or Utah DOC, so they will have to tell you what is necessary. Maybe whoever is listed on the phone contract can be approved as a call recipient too?

I hope there is a relatively easy way for you to receive his phone calls, maybe even at both your house, and your Mom's.

I have no idea how Utah would interpret the bill, but you might want to try getting your name added to the billing statement. I suspect that what they are after is to know for sure who a phone is associated with and where they might find that person.

I have a "family plan" that at one time had myself, my wife, my dad, my son and daughter on it. At first, all the phones were in my name alone. My name would appear on the caller ID.

But then I learned how to get each person identified. So now the caller ID has the name of the person who uses the phone. The phone bill lists the names of each person. The "Billing Address" still has my name, but everyone else's name is there too. This also provided each person with the ability to make any changes to their portion of the account.

Perhaps that would be enough for Utah.

Utah seems to be pretty reasonable when it comes to these things. My bill is in my company's name because my employer pays for my cell phone, but someone who works for the prison told me to just attach my business card showing that as my cell phone number and it would be fine. I think maybe if the last name and address match up it just might go through ok.
