Interstate collect calls to landlines can be billed to the called party’s telephone service or GTL’s Advance Pay Account.
WIRELESS CELL PHONES
Interstate collect calls to cell phones can only be billed to GTL’s Advance Pay Account.
Friends and family can establish Advance Pay Accounts by calling Global Tel Link at 1-877-650-4249. A one-time, one minute complimentary call is provided with information for creating a prepaid account and receiving future calls from a correctional facility.
Inmate Interstate dialing instructions are as follows:
· Dial 0 + area code + phone number you are calling
· Follow voice prompts:
o Press 1 for English. Press 2 for Spanish
o Dial area code + phone number you are calling
o The call will be placed on hold in order to contact the called party. The call will be connected upon acceptance by the called party.
The process for intrastate (inter-island) and international calls remains unchanged.
