SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Oct 15, 2013 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) --
Telepigeon, a new telephone calling service for prison inmates and families recently launched, making it more affordable for families to keep in touch with their loved ones. The company's goal is to drastically lower the cost of inmate's phone calls by providing an easy-to-use local number.
"Inmates who stay in contact with family and friends are more likely to do well after being released from prison," said Telepigeon Founder Frederick Hutson. "It's very expensive for inmates to make phone calls and stay in touch with their friends and loved ones. Our Telepigeon services makes it easier on the inmates and their families by drastically reducing the cost of phone calls made by inmates."
When users sign up for Telepigeon, they receive an easy to use local number, which automatically forwards calls to their existing phone line. The first 15 minutes each month are free. After that, affordable plans start at less than four dollars. Families can save up to 80 percent compared to traditional prison calling systems.
The advantages of Telepigeon include a fully-automated system, immediate activation and no set-up fees. More information is available at http://www.telepigeon.com
