One of my best friends is a guest of the Dept of Corrrections in south Seattle for another 12 months. His girlfriend lives in Mexico and it costs him about $0.53 per minute to call her (currently costing him about $175/mo!). He has access to phone and limited email but no internet; hence, no Skype). Obviously, he's looking for a better alternative. A fellow inmate said that he could buy a local Skype number and have it forward to her cell number in Mexico for approximately $.06 per minute but I can not find anything on the site that quite fits his needs. I looked at SkypeToGo but still works out to be expensive.
Can someone give me some direction to solve his issue?
