Long story short, one of my best friends is looking at over 20 years in prison-- the Connect Network GTL is SOOOO expensive--- what calling systems would you recommend to cut down on costs? Please please respond. I need direction here-- Thanks so much.

If the IDOC uses GTL, you have to go through GTL. No way around it. But! If you purchase cell phone or can have your cell phone changed, get a local number to the facility where he's being housed. You'll want something that is the same area code and prefix.

Do not use any of those call-forwarding or 3rd party inmate phones services, either get a new cell phone or have your cell phone number changed through legitimate channels.
