Advance Connect

This is a prepaid calling option which is a great option if you are trying to stick to a budget since you will be in control of how much money you are paying for the phone service. 

Direct Bill

With this option, you will get billed each month for the service you used.  You basically have your own personal phone service.  If you do not pay attention to how long you are talking on the phone this option will get pricey.

This plan is great for friends and family of the inmates who will be incarcerated for a long time. It will come in handy when having to make calls to bail bondsmen, and attorneys.

Keep in mind, to qualify, this plan requires a credit check.

Inmate Debit

Inmates can fund their own telephone account with this option. Unlike the first two options, you don't have to make an account with this option since the debt comes directly from the inmate's phone account.

The account will not be tied to your name, however, you can still put money into their account.
