Default Cellular devices! Will calls from the prison use minutes?

So do any of you know if PCS is it's own company or if it uses like southwestern bell (at & t) lines because I' looking for a new cell phone company, and if they go through SWB then it wont use my at&t mins if i choose to go through them. if not i might just go through us cellular cause then his calls wont use my mins. cause it's free incoming calls! I'm just looking for the cheaper deal here. so anyone know?

PCS is its own company.....and has nothing to do with any cell phone compnay...us cellular with free incoming would probably be your best bet

oh my god, yes it uses your minutes on your plan we learned the hard way, we went over so bad on my phone minutes my bill was so high. The best thing to do would be to get a plan that has like my faves through t mobile and put the prison number usually 888-288-9879 under a fave five and it wont use your minutes then, wish i would have thought of that when my man was in last time, my bill ended up bein like 800 for 2 months

Roughly 227 minutes or 3 1/2 hours. It cost .11 per minute if you use prepaid. If the inmate buys the minutes it is .10 per minute.

If the calls cost any wheres as much as my husbands do it won't last long. My husband calls me every day. Less than a week.
