Default phone number

Does anyone know a number to call to talk to a live person. I tried to call the one on the site but it won't go through. Doesn't ring.

It is blocked, I am assuming because GTL knows that it is a forwarding number. Does anyone know if I could get a prepaid phone from Verizon? Do they still need to know my zip code, address, bill, etc? I am trying to make this as cheap as possible. I am in a 614 area code. This whole thing was easy for me until he moved to Ross. Now I am attempting to be creative and it is not working! Help!
I bought a prepaid phone for $30.00 online at walmart and it came with a 1000 minute prepaid card. When I activated it, I requested a 740 area code. He buys the phone minutes at the commissary and calls for 90 cents. I have to buy a prepaid card for $30.00 every 30 days. Oh and forgot to mention he added the number to the phone list and I got a call requesting permission for him to call. It was easy and I believe it is totally legit with the prisons(so far) and I don't have to deal with the global tel as much.

If you change your cell # to where he is located you don't have to set up an account with GTL - you can put $$ on his phone account on offender connect portal. And the calls will be pre paid. Also, they don't take $$ from his phone account so you can put $$ on there so he can call you. It's ONLY when you put $$ on his fund account (his books) is when they take money that he owes.

thank you so much! ive been freaking out about that because he owes like $39,000 and i cant go without talkin to him on the phone, ill go crazy. his caseworker is saying that if i call the clerk of courts here and set up a payment plan and pay something each month and send in the paper to the prison that the prison wont take his money so idk what to do.

Default local area discount?

Got a question, hoping maybe someone will help.

I have a GTL phone account (not the inmates phone acct but mine). We were hoping the price of the calls would drop after 5 pm, but they didn't.

So to keep phone expenses down I will be changing my cell# to the local area code.

My question is this, will it actually be any cheaper per call (On my phone acct)???
Right now he cannot use his phone acct, so I have to be sure I set it up through GTL on my phone acct.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks

If I remember correctly... My calls dropped from him calling from Ohio to Nevada at $15 per $15 minutes down to $5 when I got into his area code.
