How does PCDs phone service work?
When you enroll in our Inmate Phone Service we will give you a special inmate phone number. Your inmate will now dial this special number instead of your home number. When the inmate dials this number, we will route the call over our network and it will ring to your home or cell phone. You will still have the option to accept or not accept the call as before. You will save money because we route the call over our network instead of allowing the prison to send the call to you on their long distance network at a higher rate. ^back to top Q: Does your phone system violate the prison’s rules? No it does not. The inmate phone number which we give you is located outside the prison. When the inmate calls that number, the call will go through the prison phone system with all its security features. You will still hear those annoying messages and the guards can still listen in or record the conversations. Your inmate is still subject to the same telephone rules that they were before. ^back to to
