I am a representative for Correctional Billing Services. The reason there is such a thing as a high velocity block (accepting 50.00 worth of calls in a 24 hr period.) Is to prevent unwanted users of your phone from acceping hundreds of dollars of calls which you would be expected to pay for. Its a security feature. If your pvp (limit) is 50.00 thats because we have no payment history therefore you are starting at a lower limit, you can get this limit increased if you report six consecutive payments.

Amanda, I think the poster was referring to a pre pay account. The $50.00 minimum payment lasts you until you use it up, which is to say depending on the amount of your calls. IF your calls are a flat rate of, say, $1.00, then you will get 50 calls. If your rate is a per-minute rate, say, $1.50 to connect and $0.10 per min then it will depend on how long you spend on the phone (example $50.00 will get you 20 10-min calls, or 14 20-min calls.) - and as far as the website goes http://www.correctionalbillingservices.com is back up (there were fixing it), and you can always go to the parent companies website http://www.evercom.net

50 dollars will go only so far if your calls are coming from local your calls will cost anywhere from $1.00 to 4.00 if there long distance but still in state your looking at $4.00 to 12.00 per call is there out of state calls your looking at 15.00 to 30.00 per call all calls are based on 15min
