I always do the Advance where you prepay/deposit so much money (I do $$ per week).  My son has mentioned that he knows of people who have a Securus account where you pay $100/month with unlimited calls.   Does anyone know about this program and what it may be called?   I've budgeted that much a month anyway so it would be helpful to have unlimited calls too.   If anyone knows about this, please let us know.   Thanks!

I called Securus and asked them about an "$100/unlimited calls" program that my son says others are using.   They said there was no such program.   This makes sense because they would lose a lot of money with "unlimited"!
