Does anyone use Google Voice? My guy is transferring from Adams county to Hillsborough within the next week or so hopefully. I already have an account with Securus from when he was locked up in Missouri. Are calls cheaper if you get a local number near the prison or are out of state calls cheaper? In Missouri I paid a lower rate being out of state but not sure how it works in Illinois.

I believe if it's cheaper out of state vs local number. My mother in law lives in Indiana and calls are cheaper for her than they are for me living in Chicago.

FYI
For anyone looking to set up google voice to receive inmate calls. It does not work. I opened up an account with google voice, my husband called me on my google voice # (which is an Indiana #) and damn it....it didn't work. I was charged more than my 630 cell # I have.
Only reason I tried this is because of few dudes locked up with him said their girlfriends/wives had google voice and where being charged less.

A new law passed that will make calls $2.10 per half hour by Jan. 2018 so the prices will be lowering around here anyways.
