Prison Mobile Phone Phase Out

Prison Mobile Phone Phase Out

On 29 May 2023 it was confirmed that prison-issued mobile phones introduced during the pandemic will be replaced on a phased basis over the coming months, with a new in-cell service being launched “by the summer”. Prisoners will be given 200 free minutes per month, which is down from the 300 minutes per month previously available. Additional calls are to be charged at 5p per minute.
