my son is in edm remand center and the only way i can talk to him is if he calls collect is there a way i can have my phone accept his calls?
We support collect calling so your son can place a collect call to you and you'll be prompted to accept the charges as normal (which would appear on your bill as a collect call). The call has to originate from a provider with whom we have an agreement, but we have agreements in place with almost all providers from which a collect call would be placed.
Can he call toll-free numbers (1-800)? If so, would strongly suggust you consider getting one (from Shaw or elsewhere). Would be considerably cheaper.
Would also be able to give it out to other people, or use it yourself when someone is away on travel/vacation, other family members and the like
Actually yes, good call Kevin.
nubins, we do offer a calling card option if you're interested, which might work out better than collect calling. You can find out more and create an account here.
