I know and it's terrible. The calls are so expensive. I have the receipts from the money orders and someday I will add them up and see what this crap has cost us.

I would also like to know if any of this is up to date... My husband just went into Engler a couple days ago and I am looking forward to hearing from him. Any new information on phone procedure or anything else really would be much appreciated! He's been in County before, but not prison.... So this is new to me. I used Securus for his calls when he was in County and it was like almost $10 for one 15 minute phone call. So wondering if I have to do anything else in order to receive calls now that he's in prison? Is it the same phone system still? And what about cost? I heard it was cheaper in prison... Is that true? Thanks for any feedback!

Michigan uses GlobalTel for phone service. Calls are $3.20 for 15 minutes. You can go to their site: connectnetwork.com for additional information. I don't remember if prisoner can call while in quarantine, but you can write to
them. If they can find some paper&envelope, they can write back.

The only way he can call "anyone " would be to get a "disbursement " from his prison funds and purchase a "debit card". When he dials a number he will be asked weather he wants to make a "collect" (GTL) or a "debit" call (using his phone disbursement credit)

option 2
register the # he wishes to call on your GTL account and pre pay with fund you deposit
