I have been a long distance visitor to prisons for a long time since my aunt and uncle both went to jail. They are not only in different jails, but they are also in places that I have a hard time getting to as an adult. I started making phone calls that were really hard to hear, and that just made it worse because you do not feel any kind of connection at all. I found Securus a while back, and now I can make real visits because I am using Securus on my phone.
I am not sure how many people do this, but I am using Securus on my phone to be as expressive as I can possibly be. My aunt and uncle did not deserve the sentences they got, and they are actually really fun people that like to tell jokes and goof around. I am one of the people that would goof around with them the most, and I can move the phone around to make the call more fun.
I have been able to take them on tours of my office, take them around the house and take them to a park near the house. I am trying to make it fun, and it is so easy with Securus.
The Securus app is on my phone, and that makes it really easy to just walk around and make it feel like they are in motion even though they are in jail. I have heard that the calls are really secure, but I think the best part is that I can use it on my phone like a normal person.
