can’t I receive collect calls from my incarcerated friend or family member?
Some service providers, such as cell phone providers, will not permit any
collect calls to their subscribers. Other "non-traditional" local telephone
service providers do not install the costly Telecom equipment that would allow
their subscribers to receive collect calls as a way to control costs.
The V-CONNECT Advance Pay Service makes it possible for anyone to receive
collect calls from a penal institution serviced by VAC regardless of the reason
traditional collect calling is not available. Once the account is established,
subsequent collect calls will complete and the cost of the call will be
deducted from the account bypassing the collect calling restriction.
Several different payment methods are available for funding the account
including credit card, debit card, cashier check, and money order. No personal
checks will be accepted. Once the account is funded the called party can start
receiving calls from the institution immediately. Please click 'SIGN UP' for
