How SecurTel Works

SecurTel helps save money on inmate calls by connecting your phone to the lowest cost per minute area codes your prison facility charges. Every US prison charges different rates for local and long distance jail calls. With SecurTel, we set you up with the guaranteed lowest rate. When an inmate calls the special jail call phone number we provide, the call is forwarded to your phone.

To begin, simply sign up on our website, give us the name of the facility you are trying to reach, and your phone number for forwarding.

Learn more about how to make inmate calls by reading our inmate call guide.

  • First, Select SIGN UP NOW to activate your SecurTel Jail Phone Number.
  • Next, we will research and provision your new "lowest cost" Jail Phone Number.
  • Then, register your special jail phone number at your inmates jail or prison facility.
  • Then, add funds your jail or inmate phone account.
  • Now… When your inmate calls your special jail phone number your calls will be made to you at the lowest possible price.


We do not place call or minute limits on your SecurTel Jail Phone Number. Your jail facility charges you separately for your “in jail” talk time. SecurTel is not affiliated in any manner with the jail facilities. We have no control over jail facility phone rates or policies.
