– One Phone Call Myth

Hollywood and television have trained us to think that people who are arrested only get one phone call. This isn’t true. If it was, the person would be out of luck if the person they were calling didn’t pick up. In fact, you can make up to three calls to get help (learn more about phone calls from jail).

– Cost of the Phone Calls

In most cases, the phone calls are free to make. But, if the people you are calling are long-distance, the arrestee will make a “collect call.” The operator will inform the person who picks up that it is a collect call, and ask if they will accept the charges. If you get a phone call asking if you accept the charges, it is important that you take the call! It is likely a friend in need.
