About Just Talk Communications
Just Talk Communications was founded by veterans of the early days of prepaid calling systems. When a friend spent some time in custody, they quickly learned that friends and family of inmates typically can't receive calls on their cell phones.
Rather than setting up a landline or intruding on others with landlines, they solved the problem by creating Just Talk Communications.
As cell phones continue to replace landlines, Just Talk will continue to grow as an important way to maintain communications between inmates and family.
