I called the 18008446591 and they wanted me to pay everytime i called and the block was still on for receiving incoming calls from the ottawa county jail....and it says that i paid the full amount but it is still block and there is no one to talk to about this!!!I don't want to get charged 5 times of 50 dollars if it is still blocked and i paid 37 dollars every time i talked to him and said it was a mim of 50 dollars!!!

Im fed up with this!!!I want to get my money back!!!

dont pay the ridiculous rates these vultures are charging ,put money on your peoples books so they can buy phone cards.if and where possible. i was about to go through it again until this page popped up when i searched cbs now i think i'll make the 2 hour round trip drive and drop money off at the jail so they can buy a phone card. saves me all the hassle you guys are talking about i know cause i went through it recently when they sat after being arrested. screw cbs! 8)

This comment is for ignorant Bill. Who says they did the crime? You sound like a govt. worker, or maybe you're just on welfare. Go get a job. You're an ***

:sigh my son is right next door to me basically and i have to pay for collect calls. I am local. This is just a rip off. Evercom is making billions and the jails are getting kick backs. Jails and any venders associated with them are all about making big money. If you research them you will find that evercom owns the phones in the jail and considering the amount of inmates that use them on a daily basis our jails should be like resorts for the kick backs they get. oh sorry it is called percentage they receive. There is nothing like penalizing the family of inmates for the crimes they committed. More than half the time the phones do not work or are disconnected. try getting your money back if the inmate leaves. i am still waiting 1 and a half years later for my refund. evercom is one of the most expensive services out there. when my son was over a hundred mile away in a state facility it cost me less than half the price for his calls. different service same state. RIP OFF!!!!

To the response of Bill- These complaints are about the services rendered by Evercom. The procedure is explained, it is followed by relatives of these inmates, Evercom gets the money requested, but do not deliver the services as promised. If you are running a business, providing a service, customers expect you to do just that.
IT'S NOT PERSONAL, JUST BUSINESS :-)

To all you people who complain. Tell your loved one who is calling you from jail or prison, they shouldnt have done the crime if they can't afford the time and $$$$$

I use correctional billing services for my son and they are on the level with you. BUT, it is EVERCOM that is the problem. If you call and get a number from Correctional Billing and get a local number, is is EVERCOM that blocks the number, NOT CORRECTIONAL BILLING! I know firsthand from my experience. Try using different emails, etc. with Evercom and maybe it can work for awhile. I have had 3 numbers blocked so far but it is blocked by EVERCOM. Do not tell EVERCOM where you got the number or they will block it right away. Just tell them it is for another family member.

I had to pay a minimum of $50 to get my account on for my son. I live in the same county where he is in jail and each time he calls me they charge $2.41. I feel so bad for those of you paying thirty something dollars per call. I wish I could get in this business, I'd make it honest and affordable for families. God Bless!

when i'm talking to my husband using cbs we can be on the phone for 2/3 mins and the woman is coming over the phone saying NO CUSTOME CALLING FEATURES ALLOWED....... what does that mean??? I really dont care all I care about is that the phone hangs up on us, so he has to call right back so basically were paying twice for one call..... then I go and call the 1800 # and they act like they have no idea of whats going on giving you the run arounds..... and these calls are not cheap....... i'm not happy with this service you guys should really work on fixing this seriously :( :cry :( :cry :?

I called the 800 number and talked to a rep who wasn't in the United States! The bill is paid and they insist that there is a limit and the phone is blocked.

the amount of the phone call is based on how far you are from the location of the jail/prison. I was paying $15 a call until I changed my # to a more local # that is closer to the location of where my man is locked up at and it changed it from $15 a call to $4.00, but I personally feel that Evercom should inform customers of that option, but they want to make $$$!!! :roll
