Exclamation Collect calls with prepaid phones

Can someone please tell me which prepaid phones can get collect calls? I have straight talk which I'm ready to throw my phone in a free way. Because I can get any of Luis calls he's in Mississippi and I live in central florida. I Tried calling the jail and it says my number is invalid. I also tried signing up fir some kind of prison phone account on line but they didn't have any mississippi jails listed. Ugh. So if anyone could please help me out. If I need to switch phones I will.

I have Straight talk, with a Verison service and I don't have any trouble getting hubby's calls here in Kentucky.

I think you have to use whatever phone service is arranged by the particular jail and open an account with them. Lamar County Jail in Mississippi has just switched to ICSolutions - extremely expensive calls and fees, but I can prepay for calls to my number.
