Inmate phone changes coming

IDOC alert symbol

The Idaho Department of Correction has entered into a new contract with CenturyLink to provide inmate phone services beginning October 1, 2014.

As a result, the current phone service provider, GTL, will no longer accept deposits from friends and families for inmate debit phone time accounts as of September, 1, 2014.

Inmates will still be able to buy debit phone time through the commissary service at their facility and friends and family can still make deposits with GTL for prepaid accounts.

They are, however, encouraged to manage their debit phone time so they use as much of it as possible before October 1, 2014.

Any remaining funds on their inmate debit account will be transferred to CenturyLink.
