Hi there unfortunately GTL have the DOC contract in Colorado and there is no getting around them for cheaper calls. You can fund a GTL account but they will tax you if you do or you can give your loved one the money and he /she can fund the calls.There is no tax if the inmate funds the calls.
I think calls cost the same local and out of state so a local number wouldnt help.It costs about $2.40 for a 20 minute call.

Welcome. The least expensive way as maytayah said is to have your loved one purchase the phone time.

This is correct, calls are the same local or out of state. He calls me in California.
