Phone calls

Inmates at one point were able to purchase a phone card from the commissary, however, things have changed and they aren't allowed to do that anymore. However, inmates can still purchase time increments from the commissary.

If you, a friend, or a family member would like to fund their account from the outside you can choose to do so.

Securus Technologies contracts with Blackford County Jail for their telephone service. There are 3 different plans listed below that the company offers for you to choose from.

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.
