Communication with people who are housed in correctional facilities can be a complex task. Letters are used to communicate to people in correctional amenities, as it is the only viable and approved method. However, there are occasions wherein the inmates in correctional facilities can make phone calls. The phone calls allowed are prepaid collect calls and the person who wants to receive the call should make arrangements and pay for the call. Very few companies provide services that allow you to book prepaid collect calls and V-Connect is one such company.
