FCC Looking Into Prison Telephone Calls

by adustyframe ~ December 13th, 2014

The expensive phone calls from prison were one of the very hard things we dealt with.

It was hard to want to talk to Lee as much as possible and not be able to afford it.

It was hard to tell him not to call because I couldn’t put money on the phone.

It was hard to pay them several dollars just to take my payment to put money on the account.

15 minute phone calls a couple of times a week were all we had to hold onto and I could barely afford them. I know that a phone call doesn’t cost that much….not even a call from across the country.

I know lots of people have no sympathy for the incarcerated individual and that’s ok. But their families who are trying to keep things together are the ones who have to pay for the calls.

It was insult to injury.

I am glad they’re looking into it! I hope they do something about it too. Read more here.
