Phone Calls in Jail
You're entitled to make a phone call from jail, but that doesn't mean you're going to get one right away. Jail telephones are often rigged to only make collect calls, although some take coins as well. All telephone calls from people in custody can be monitored. You should not discuss anything that is secret or sensitive—circumstances of your arrest, people you are close to, any contact information for those people, etc.
