Prison Calls Online is not a prison phone service provider...they are a call forwarding service that gives you a local number and then forwards calls to phones that would be illegal to put on a prison calling list otherwise. It is NOT legal to use them with Florida DOC.

You can get calls on a cell phone that doesn't have a contract, my brother has metro and gets calls from my nephew in Liberty CI

Is that a rule change recently? When they first instituted cell phones they were being very specific about having to provide the contract paperwork and having to make people jump through hoops.

He had to do the same as I did, send in a something that shows your address with the phone number from the provider, whether your printed it off the internet or it came from the service provider themselves. The bill did not even have his name on it, he wrote it in ink pen.

My fiancé is in Liberty. I had metro then I moved to Boost when I moved.
I sent in a boost bill with my name, number, and address on it and Liberty CI would not accept it. They said I needed a contract.
I had to get a land line.
I don't think your brothers case is the norm but glad he gets to use his cell.

My husband just update his list, and they denied my metro. The reasoning, it's a pay as you go phone and those aren't allowed. Glad you got urs approved, wish mine would. Some camps are easier then others.

Interesting! His was approved at CFRC, but classifications there kept "losing" his paperwork and he had to fax over things several times then it was blocked at Securus, or at least that is what CFRC kept saying but Securus kept saying it was the prison, so maybe they just got sick of him and said ok, LOL...guess he better not rock the boat as long as he keeps getting calls
