Inmates at the Harris County Jail are not allowed to receive phone calls.
Inmates can place collect calls to phone numbers where collect calls are not restricted.
Advance Pay accounts are set up by the party receiving the calls, allowing them to do so even if their phone number restricts collect calls. Here’s how it works:
To prevent unauthorized inmate collect call charges to your phone bill, do not attempt to transfer any inmate call; do not attempt to conference call another number; do not call forward your phone. If you feel you have been a victim of fraudulent inmate collect call charges, contact your local telephone service provider. You can also contact Securus at 1-800-844-6591 to block any calls originating from the Harris County Jail to your phone.
