If I have a member of my family or friend in a prison and wish them to contact me, then it is possible with my V-Connect prepaid account. This service is offered by many companies to help the family or friend to set up a phone account, but the condition is that particular institution must be participating in the service provided by V-Connect.
Now the inmate can make calls to the family, if I set up my VConnect prepaid account and this service is provided even to numbers which have been previously banned from receiving calls. This kind of suspension of calls is implemented when the local telephone company has no billing contract with the Value Added Communications or VAC. This situation also occurs if the particular inmate has crossed or reached the monthly billing limit that is set by VAC.
In the above event, the family can avail of the services of V Connect and I can set up my V Connect prepaid account with the help of the Advance pay system. This kind of account can be easily made by just paying the required amount of money in a prepaid account and also mentioning your telephone number. When this is done and I have set up my VConnect prepaid account, then the inmate can call at any time and when you accept the call, the amount of the call plus some tax amount is reduced from the advance that you have paid.
I can pay for my V Connect prepaid account with the help of a credit card, debit card or a check. But the amount that is to be paid will be determined by the location of the facility and also the distance between the two numbers.
I can easily create my V Connect prepaid account by using Visa or Master card and putting a minimum amount of $25 up to a maximum of $100 in the account. It is also possible to make a phone deposit in Fl Doc, for inmates of the correctional institutes in Florida known as Florida Department of Corrections. Pay-Tel provides services for the Florida Department of Correctional institutions and a Family Connection Calling Plan can be set up at their website to make a phone deposit at Fl doc.
