You can’t call an inmate who is incarcerated with the Tennessee Department of Corrections. However, if you wish to receive calls from an inmate, you can do that with an account through GTL’s ConnectNetwork.
What is ConnectNetwork?
ConnectNetwork is GTL’s authorized service for electronic payments, account management and enhanced services such as e-messaging/email. ConnectNetwork can take payments using the ConnectNetwork.com website.

AdvancePay Prepaid Telephone Accounts
To accept calls from an inmate in a Tennessee facility, it’s recommended that you create an AdvancePay prepaid telephone account. Prepaid calling works by placing money on your phone number so that when your offender calls you the funds are deducted from the balance on your prepaid account.
To set up or fund a prepaid account, you have four options:
Inmate Phone Accounts
ConnectNetwork PIN Debit (Inmate Phone) accounts allow you to make deposits. Once funds have been deposited, the deposit is credited to the offender and may be used to make phone calls to any allowed phone number.
To set up or fund an inmate phone account visit www.ConnectNetwork.com, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Please note – fees may apply to all deposit methods.
The private facilities in Tennessee managed by CoreCivic use Inmate Calling Solutions, LLC.
