As of June 2015, Securus offers inmate calling through AdvanceConnect. Friends or families of inmates may open prepaid calling accounts. When an inmate calls an individual with an account, charges are deducted automatically.
Individuals may open an AdvanceConnect account online or over the phone. Multiple phone numbers are allowed on a single account. For instance, an individual may receive calls on a home, work or cell phone.
A user can add funds to the account with a debit or credit card, MoneyGram, Western Union, money order, or personal or cashier's check, though the amount added must meet the minimum deposit set by AdvanceConnect. Users can make calls as long as the account contains sufficient funds.
