Default Calling Internationally from Bent Correctional

Hello,

Does anyone know what's the cheapest / best way to call the UK from Bent Correctional? Do they allow skype numbers? Or is there a better company to use?

Thanks!

Hey I use a Skype number and haven’t had any trouble with it. You can get a local number and save some £ that way too.

Hi, does anyone have any idea about what the international calling rate is? I’ve just set up my GTL account and I put $50 on there for a 20 minute call, but I’m not sure if that’s enough? I’m in Australia, if it matters. I’m interested in using a Skype number but I don’t know if that’s allowed and I wouldn’t want to get my inmate in trouble? Sorry for such a newbie question! TiA xo

Local and out of state calls are 12 cents a minute and international calls are 50 cents a minute so a 20 minute call would be around $10. I found calls are cheaper if I send my husband money and he funds the calls as he is not taxed but if I fund the calls I am taxed.

Thank you so much. I donít know know why I was under the impression that the calling rate would be over a $1 per minute. When you say you send the money to your husband, is that also through GTL? Through that pin debit thing or do you mean something else?

Hi you can send money via Gtl pin debit that gives the inmate money on their phone account. He can use the money to call anyone. It does work out a little cheaper as he wonít be taxed. If you fund the Gtl account yourself he can only use that money to call you. You will also be taxed itís not much but it does all add up. If I send my husband money that isnít for the phone I use JPay.
Any questions just ask.

Hi again! Sorry if this question is dumb, but I finally found the DOC policy on phone calls and it says that international calls have to be debit calls. I donít know what that means, but I havenít made a mistake by putting money on my account, have I? If the money is on my account through that Advance Pay thing, does that mean that itís a collect call and not a debit call? All this terminology is doing my head in! TiA xx

I am not an expert but I funded my number on Gtl and we were able to have calls. I also give my husband money for the phone and we get calls.
