The number to accept a call from any CDCR prison is 5.

The recording SAYS you can say 5 but it never worked for me. Just press the button instead.
And I always had to wait till it said press or say 5. Couldnt do it before it said to.

Ha - I never even dared to say anything or move a finger too early I'm worried that the call might get cut off....have become a bit neurotic, especially now that our calls are rare

I received some calls with this registered voice telling to press 5 to accept but it didn't work. I live in Italy and had a local number from Imt. Is it possible that I can't receive a collect call because my number is not approved?
Have I to set up an account with the jail provider?
Thank to all of you

Must have to do with being overseas......Hoping someone with experience with that will chime in to offer suggestions on what to do next.

I don't know what "Imt" is - but I assume you have an account set up with GTL as all CDCR calls must be through them?

Hi! I get a local number from Imt (inmatetelefone.com) that redirects calls to my cell phone. They only told me to give it to my friend.
I create a gtl account but I haven't received the activation mail yet. Tried to call them but it seems to be impossible to talk to a rep, I tried in Spanish and English.
So I sent a message through FB messenger and one through Twitter. Still waiting.
