How It Works


How It Works - LowerCost Calls

Unfortunately, since it is the jail’s phone system, there is absolutely no way around having to pay them something when your loved one uses the phone…

The GOAL is to pay the jail’s phone service provider the least amount possible; which is $3.15 per 15-minute call!

Take Audrey for example…

Audrey’s fiance, Jacob, is being held in the Saginaw County Jail in Saginaw, Michigan.

Every time Jacob calls her, the jails phone service provider charges her $12.95 for a 15-minute call.

Wanting to save money on the cost of her calls, Audrey searched the internet and found us… LowerCostCalls

After receiving the phone numbers from us, Audrey contacted the jail’s phone service provider to add the numbers we provided to the account she created with them.

Now when Jacob calls her, the jail’s phone service provider is only able to charge her $3.15 per 15-minute call instead of the $12.95 she had been paying.

Using our service saves Audrey $9.85 per 15-minute call!

How much you will save depends on how much more than $3.15 per call you are currently paying the jail’s phone service provider.
