Global Tel Link Complaint - Warning: Global Tel Link trying to edge out MagicJack
My son is incarcerated in a Tennessee facility and after paying Global Tel Link big money within the last year to talk to him, we decided to give MagicJack a try. I set up everything and sent my son my MagicJack number to call (which I set up with a local TN number, since I live in TX). He was unable to add the MagicJack number on his facility phone list. He was told the facility wanted 'proof' that the number was a 'land line' and not a 'cell phone'. I just finished talking with a nice man at the facility, who handles phone issues for the inmates. It turns out that it's Global Tel Link who has a problem with MagicJack. He was unsure of the details (which are plain to me),and was hoping by the end of the week that MagicJack numbers could be added back on to phone lists. We all know why Global Tel Link doesn't want families using MagicJack phone numbers, because it will cut into the company profits. I'm sure this company has made bookoos putting the screws to inmate families. They sure don't want anything cutting into their profit margin. I guess if I cancelled my local phone service to use MagicJack exclusively I wouldn't be talking with my son at all.
Just a head up.
