- How is telephone usage determined?
Phone privileges are established by each individual confinement facility. This includes the hours each day the phones are available, the time limit on calls and in some cases what numbers are allowed to be called. Infinity Networks does not determine the allowed hours of operation or call length. All our confinement facilities calls are recorded and monitored.
- How does the inmate phone system bill a collect call?
Infinity Networks only bills calls that have been "positively accepted" by the called party. This means that when you receive a call from a confinement facility, you will first hear a recorded announcement explaining that the call is from a confinement facility and the caller's name. It will ask if you wish to accept the call you must "positively accept" the call by pressing the number prompted on the keypad of your touch-tone phone. When you accept a collect call you are agreeing to pay the charges for the call.
The billing for "positively accepted" collect calls will appear on your local phone bill. The amount of collect calls billed on your local telephone bill is subject to calling limits established with each telephone company. This limit applies per household, not per person. If calls on your bill are unfamiliar, please check with other members of the household or business or anyone else who may have access to your telephone to determine who may have accepted the call.
