Prison Voicemail enables family or friends to exchange voicemail messages with a prisoner at any time. They are assigned a unique landline phone number, which they can call at any time to leave messages. The prisoner accesses the messages by dialling the same number from any phone in the prison, and can choose to leave a reply.
What are the benefits of using Prison Voicemail?
For the family/friend:
It rebalances communications by enabling the family to initiate contact, meaning they can share thoughts and feelings as they happen, rather than waiting until the next time the prisoner calls.
It’s fast - messages are instantly available at the other end.
Available at any time - users can exchange voicemails straight from their mobile phone at any time. This is particularly useful if the family member works or is unable to be by the phone during the day.
No more missed call frustration - family members who have missed a call from the prison can just call back and leave a voicemail, relieving their feeling of guilt or frustration.
For the prisoner:
Less queueing - no need to queue to get to the phone at peak times. Send and receive messages at off-peak times instead.
Less worry - Receive regular updates, or easily arrange times for calls and visits.
More contact - family can share thoughts or feelings wherever they are, and exchange messages even when both parties are on different schedules.
Cheaper than calling a mobile - calls cost the price of a landline call, but the family member can listen and respond on-the-go from their mobile.
Who is Prison Voicemail best suited to?
If you often miss calls from a prisoner, or find it difficult to be on the phone at the same time, our service will be very helpful. Likewise if you have family members such as children or elderly people who are unable to have contact with the prisoner but wish to, being able to exchange voicemails can make a huge difference.
How do users sign up?
The family or friend of the prisoner signs up for Prison Voicemail on our website (www.prisonvoicemail.com) or over the phone (01603 340588).
You will need:
Your phone number
Basic prisoner details including prisoner number
Credit or debit card
You first input your email address, phone number (this will be the only phone you can leave messages from), and the select the name of the prison from the drop-down menu. You have to agree to Prison Voicemail’s terms and conditions by ticking the box before proceeding.
Is it possible to sign-up over the phone for non-internet users?
Yes, just give us a call on 01603 340588 and we’ll help you to sign up.
Is it possible to sign up with a landline?
Yes, you can sign up with a landline number by going to this link.
Can I sign up from overseas?
Yes, you can sign up for an international account by clicking on this link. If your country is not available, let us know and we will see if we can support it.
Does the user need to inform the prisoner about the account?
No, we will work with the prison to do that. However, if the prisoner does not check their messages once they have been informed, it is up to the family member to ask them to.
Using Prison Voicemail
How does it work?
The user dials their Prison Voicemail landline number from the mobile phone registered to their account (they will not be able to get through from any other number).
The service automatically hangs up the call and then calls the user back within 30 seconds. This is a security measure, but has the added benefit that it saves the caller’s phone credit.
The user answers the call from our service and is prompted to leave a voicemail. They leave their message and hang up when finished. The user can repeat this process to leave more messages.
The message is then instantly available at the other end. The next time the prisoner dials the same Prison Voicemail landline number from inside the prison, they will hear the message played back to them. If there are multiple messages, the prisoner will hear them one after another.
Once the messages have played, the prisoner can hang up or leave a reply message and then hang up when finished.
The user will receive a text message notification the first time the prisoner checks for a message, and if the prisoner leaves them a reply.
Are there any rules for using the service?
Users must not leave messages which may have a negative impact on the prisoner’s state of mind. In the event that messages are left which may cause distress, they must contact the prison directly to ensure prison staff can provide support.
Do you have any advice for getting the most from the service?
Prison Voicemail advises that the user leaves relatively short messages on a regular basis, rather than longer messages or multiple messages before the prisoner has had a chance to listen to earlier messages. This will reduce the chances of using all their PIN credit in one go.
Prison Voicemail works best if prisoners get into the habit of checking for messages regularly. They do not get charged if they have no message waiting, so can check as often as they like.
For frequent contact: If users plan to leave messages regularly, they should remind the prisoner to check every day.
For infrequent contact: If users only plan to leave messages occasionally, they should agree a set day each week when they will leave a message, so the prisoner knows when to check.
What happens if users try to call their voicemail number from another phone?
Calls to the voicemail number must be made from the mobile number registered on the account. Calls from any other phone will get a “number not recognised”.
Is there a maximum message length?
Messages are limited to just under 3 minutes in length. This is to reduce the amount of call credit prisoners spend when collecting the message, and reduce waiting time for other prisoners who wish to use the phone.
Who can exchange messages?
The system only allows the original phone number registered to the account to exchange messages. This number will already have been approved by the prison. When the account holder calls to leave or receive a message, it verifies caller ID by hanging up and calling back on the approved number.
What happens if my contact moves to a different prison?
If the prison is on our list of active prisons then the service will keep working. There is no need to do anything. If the prison is not on our list please contact us to let us know.
What if two or more family members want to leave voicemails for the same prisoner?
Currently, each person will need to set up a separate Prison Voicemail account and will receive a unique Prison Voicemail number. The prisoner will need to call both numbers to check for messages. In the future we are planning to introduce single accounts for multiple parties, however this is still in development.
Can prisoners manage their messages?
The PIN phone system does not allow touch tones, therefore our system automatically deletes messages once they have been listened to.
How does it work for solicitors and other confidential callers?
Solicitors will be able to create special accounts which allow multiple prisoner clients to be added. Each will be allocated a unique Prison Voicemail number. In the New Account Registration email, the number will be marked with the status “Confidential” and some additional information about the account owner will be provided, for example in the case of a solicitor, their law society number and company name would be provided. The prison should then add the number to the confidential list in the PIN phone system.
What prisons are you active in?
Prison Voicemail is currently expanding to prisons across England and Wales. You can see an up-to-date list by going to this page. Alternatively, let us know and we’ll notify you by email each time we launch in a new prison.
The mobile app
What does the app do?
The app has a number of extra features designed to improve the user experience for the family or friend. It enables users to leave messages without calling their Prison Voicemail number, as well as re-listen to old messages. It also makes it easier to manage your account minutes. As the app uses data connection to send and receive messages, you will need to be connected to the internet to use it.
No, the app is free, but you will need an active Prison Voicemail account to be able to use it.
Who pays and how much does it cost?
The cost of the service is paid by the account holder outside prison, usually a family member or friend. They choose a monthly subscription package which will automatically be deducted by Continuous Payment Authority once per month.
Each package comes with a set number of call minutes for the month. Current packages can be seen on the Prison Voicemail website (www.prisonvoicemail.com).
What's the difference between monthly subscription and pay-as-you-go?
Monthly subscription packages mean you sign up for a recurring monthly charge which is taken from your account once per month on the same date. These packages come with an included number of minutes. If you do not use up all your minutes on a particular month, the minutes will roll-over to following months. If you run out of minutes during the month, you can buy top-ups on our website.
Pay-as-you-go accounts have no monthly charge. You simply buy top-ups as and when you need them. However if you do not use your pay-as-you-go account for 90 days or more, the account will be cancelled. There is usually a setup fee associated with the pay-as-you-go account which covers our monthly admin costs.
Does the prisoner have to pay anything?
Prison Voicemail does not charge the prisoner for listening to or replying to messages, however the calls will still cost them the usual PIN phone landline rate. If they have no new messages, our system returns a busy tone to avoid wasting the prisoner’s PIN phone credit.
Will checking for messages cost anything or block the phone for the prisoner?
No. If the prisoner has no messages waiting, they will hear a busy tone and will not use any PIN phone credit. They will not be blocked and can make another call to a different number immediately.
Why isn’t it completely free for the prisoner?
Unfortunately Prison Voicemail has not yet been able to get authorisation to offer freephone numbers to prisoners. This is something we hope to do in the future.
What if the user wants to cancel?
The user can just call us on 01603 340588 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will cancel their account. There is no contract tie-in, so they can cancel at any time.
About Prison Voicemail
Are you a charity?
Prison Voicemail is classed as a social venture, meaning we’re a for-profit company but with a social mission. Practically speaking, this means we have a duty to prioritise social impact over all other considerations, including profit. It’s a relatively new model so some people may misunderstand the difference between us and a normal for-profit company.
This is the definition from the Social Enterprise UK website:
“Social enterprises are businesses trading for social and environmental purposes. Many commercial businesses would consider themselves to have social objectives, but social enterprises are distinctive because their social and/or environmental purpose is absolutely central to what they do – their profits are reinvested to sustain and further their mission for positive change.”
How do you measure your impact?
Prison Voicemail is working with the forensic psychology department at Lincoln university to measure the impact of its service on prisoner and family communication and well-being; safeguarding in the short, medium, and long-term.
These Terms & Conditions set out the terms under which Prison Voicemail provides you with the ability to use its voicemail service.
a. Prison Voicemail is a trading name of PHONEHUB IO LTD, company number 9568821 registered in England and Wales.
b. References to "we", "us" and "our" are to Prison Voicemail and we refer to you, the user, as "you" and "your".
c. Please read these Terms & Conditions carefully as they affect your rights and liabilities under the law and the terms governing your use of Prison
Voicemail. By using Prison Voicemail's services, you agree to these Terms & Conditions.
d. If you have any queries, please contact us at email@example.com.
2. What is Prison Voicemail?:
a. Prison Voicemail enables you to leave voice messages for a specific prisoner in a prison that has approved our service. You can leave a message by
dialling your unique Prison Voicemail number. The prisoner can receive the message by dialling the same number from the phone system in the prison.
b. Prison Voicemail is secure in that it only allows pre-approved numbers to leave messages. When you sign up for the service, you register the number from
which you will leave messages. The prison may wish to vet this number before you are allowed to leave messages.
c. You pay for messages left through Prison Voicemail through a monthly subscription payment associated with the price plan you choose while signing up for the service, or through a Pay As You Go plan. The subscription is a recurring monthly fee which is charged to your chosen payment card using Continuous Payment Authority. This is not a direct debit. The fee will automatically be deducted from your card on the same day each month. If the payment does not go through for any reason, the system will continue to attempt to take payment at regular intervals. After three failed payments, the system may cancel your subscription automatically. Until payment is received, your account will be blocked from use.
d. Each time you make a call the following process occurs:
i. You dial your unique Prison Voicemail number.
ii. Prison Voicemail verifies your caller ID. It will then hang up and call you back.
iii. You leave your message.
iv. The prisoner dials the same unique Prison Voicemail number. The prisoner can then listen to any messages on the system.
e. Some users may also use the Prison Voicemail mobile application to use the service. In this case the process will differ from that listed above.
f. Prisoners can, if enabled, initiate a message by dialling their Prison Voicemail number twice within one minute. The second call will get through and enable them to leave a message.
3. Call Rates:
a. Please check the Prison Voicemail website for current pricing. From time to time Prison Voicemail may offer discounted or free calls. These offers are subject to any specific terms of each individual offer.
b. Your chosen price plan comes with a number of minutes which can be used throughout the month. These minutes are reduced by any time you spend on the phone to your Prison Voicemail number, including time spent listening to messages, leaving messages, and listening to the Prison Voicemail system voice. The time the prisoner spends using the service is not counted and does not subtract from your minute allowance. If you use the Prison Voicemail app, only the length of your messages to the prisoner, rounded up to the nearest minute, are deducted from your balance. Please note that all deductions are rounded up to the nearest minute.
c. Prison Voicemail is not responsible any additional calling charges that you or the prisoner may incur from your phone providers. Prisoners will usually pay for their calls at the normal landline calling rate charged by the prison phone system.
d. Call Rates are subject to change at any time.
e. Any remaining minutes purchased as part of a subscription package will roll-over at the end of each month for a maximum of two months. Users may purchase top-up minutes through their account dashboard. These minutes will roll-over indefinitely until they are used up.
f. If an account relies on top-up minutes only without any monthly susbscription payments, it is classed as a Pay As You Go account. There may be a setup fee associated with this type of account. Pay As You Go accounts which have been inactive (no top-ups during this period) for more than 90 days may be cancelled without notice.
g. If at any point a subscription payment is missed and the account becomes past due then any accrued minutes from that subscription package will be lost. If a user subsequently makes a payment, the account will restart but the accrued minutes will not be kept.
4. Live calls and the Prison Voicemail App:
a. The Prison Voicemail app can be downloaded on iOS and Android from the appropriate app store. It features enhanced functionality enabling family members to listen to old messages and leave new messages without dialling the Prison Voicemail number. Please be aware that the app operates over data connections, therefore data charges may apply.
b. Some users with the Prison Voicemail app may have an additional feature available – live calls – which is available in certain establishments. This feature enables the prisoner to speak in real-time with the voicemail user if the user is available. The user can indicate their availability by selecting the appropriate option on the app.
c. If the user has indicated that they are available to receive calls from the prisoner, the next time the prisoner calls their Prison Voicemail number, after hearing any waiting messages, the app will ring and the user will be able to speak directly to the prisoner. The length of this call may be deducted from the user’s minutes balance, depending on the subscription package of the user.
d. The Prison Voicemail app relies on the phone having a data connection. A slow or patchy data connection may result in calls or messages being poor quality. We advise users to connect to wifi when doing Live Calls to avoid excessive data usage.
a. You may cancel your account with Prison Voicemail at any time. We will consider requests for refunds on a case-by-case basis depending on usage of the account, and any issues experienced by the user. We reserve the right to refuse refunds if the account has been actively used, if the user failed to inform us in a timely manner of their wish to cancel, or if the account has been denied by the prison for public protection reasons, and to retain an administration fee of up to 30% of the monthly subscription cost to cover our own costs of purchasing the line. All refunds will be made within 60 days once agreed with the customer.
b. No refunds will be issued for unused call minutes or setup fees on Pay As You Go accounts. For subscription plans, no refunds will be given for any period prior to the most recent payment.
a. Prison Voicemail is currently only available in select prisons where the service has been approved.

other competent or lawful authority. In these circumstances, we will attempt to restore the service as soon as we reasonably can.
b. Prison Voicemail only offers its service at specific prisons. If the prisoner is not housed at one of the prisons serviced by Prison Voicemail, you will

remains the property of Prison Voicemail, and may be removed from service or reassigned at any point.
b. If you have provided Prison Voicemail with the necessary details of the prisoner, Prison Voicemail will inform the prison of the new account and ask the prison to add the Prison Voicemail number to the Prisoner's approved numbers list.
