Calls placed to approved telephone numbers by the correctional facility are billed to the receiving party through their regular phone bill. There is a ceiling placed by carriers as to the amount of collect calls you can receive. It varies from carrier to carrier and if you exceed the limit you are at risk of being blocked for future inmate calls. If this is your case or if your credit history prevents you from being billed by your local telephone carrier, then there are the following 2 options:
Prepaid Debit Account
Each inmate has the option to transfer funds from their commissary account to their telephone account. This account is associated with the inmate’s PIN and called telephone number. Funds for this account are deposited by family and relatives into the inmate’s commissary account.
Prepaid Collect Service
A prepaid account is set up by Infinity Communications for the called party and then all inmate calls are processed as prepaid collect. If payment into this account is made via the receiving party credit card Infinity Networks will run a credit check prior to initiating accepting payments from the card. Also you will need the inmate’s PIN # at the time you are setting up this account.
Minimum initial deposit or replenishment amount is $25.00.
Infinity Communications accepts payment through MoneyGram or on their website using only Visa, Master Card or Discover or by phone 1-866-681-2984 Mon- Fri 7:30 am to 6:00 pm CST
