I am glad I am not the only one who suffers from vivid imagination, ST4s ;). Mine are usually in cartoon form.
Okay. Never mind. But suddenly, I’m thinking about pearls and swine and flying fucks all at once, and imagining a fabulously-attired pig floating in the skies above Helsinki ;-)
ST4s - pearls before sows ;)
Hahaha, your choice of words says more about you than anyone else could.
Google Voice isnt available in my region. I'll see about skype though and will update.
I dont give a flying f*** what anyone thinks of the words i used in this postThat's all i'll say about that.
I’m in the U.S., where phone calls from federal prisons are free for the caller. They’re time-limited to around 15 minutes, and quantity-limited to so many calls or so many minutes per month, depending on someone’s security level or circumstances. How free calls from the feds work for overseas numbers, I can only guess, but that guess would be getting a U.S.-based phone number from Skype, GoogleVoice, or some other service that your friend/pen pal can call. FYI, the feds don’t freak out over these third-party numbers/services. I’ve used them myself in the past when calls were not free and having a “local” number to a facility saved everyone a lot of money.
What else? Your English is a bajillion times better than my Finnish or Swedish will ever be (which I don’t speak at all), and if you don’t know this, heads up that the word “inmate”, while accurate in a technical sense, can also be construed as scornful or derogatory in certain contexts. I don’t like to use it when talking about my buds, bros, and friends who happen to be in prison. It’s a conscious effort to dissolve the negative labels, including these others: felon, convict, offender, and so on. Some U.S. states are also rewriting legislation to strike this kind of freighted language with terms like “incarcerated individual” (which is bonkers bureaucrat-speak if you ask me, but preferable to negative terminology).
The inmate, the inmate, the inmate. Seriously? Have some cop on, really!!!
I'd like to find out how can I receive phone calls from an american inmate while being in Finland. The inmate tried calling my normal Finnish phone number but it did not work. The inmate is at a federal transfer center, so that could have something to do with it but other than that i dont know.
How can i get a FREE (or one time payment, not monthly subscription) American phone number that the inmate can call?
