Benefits of Legacy Inmate Communications Prepaid Option
- It is essential to create a prepaid collect calls account for yourself in order to receive calls from a friend or family member who has been incarcerated in a prison, especially on your mobile phone. Operator assisted collect calls are not available to cell phones by many of the existing cellular telephone companies.
- If a block has been set up on your phone by the CLEC, or Local Exchange Carrier, you will have to set up such an account.
- It is very easy to control the amount of money that you spend on calls received from correctional facilities by setting up a prepaid collect calls account which is the best option.
Cost of Collect Calls
- All you will need is a minimum amount of $15 to create a prepaid account. After you have accepted the call from the inmate, the amount of the call will be deducted from the prepaid amount. The operator will also inform you about the balance remaining in the account and the cost of the call after every call is finished. Payment can be made in denominations of $15 and above.
Legacy Inmate Communications also issues an Establishment Fee for creating a prepaid account, but this fee is only to be paid once before setting up the account. This is a separate amount and is in addition to the minimum cost of the account. You can add to the balance of the account later on without any other additional Establishment fees being levied as it is a one-time-only fee.
- Charges for calling per minute will also differ from facility to facility according to the location of the correctional institution. You can get more information and details of the exact rates from the Customer Support Department of Prepaid Collect Calls or call (888) – PAY -729 – (4326) to find out the rates that are applicable in your particular facility.

Quote of the moment: “Don't let the opinions of the average man sway you. Dream, and he thinks you're crazy. Succeed, and he thinks you're lucky. Acquire wealth, and he thinks you're greedy. Pay no attention. He simply doesn't understand.” - Robert G. Allen Read
