You might want to call customer service, 'cause I know for sure you have to "pre-pay" your account in order to receive collect calls. At least that how the system works if you call from jail.

With all do respect to you, but it seems your information is wrong, I know for a fact u can receive collect calls, you just have to set up your account first.

Sadie is actually correct. Specifically with Verizon Wireless you cannot make or receive Collect calls from your cell phone. This has been the case for a number of years now.

Ok, yes you CAN get collect calls, but, its not through verizon, it's a third party company that you have to call and they set up your number to receive collect calls, I know it because I've seen it happen, a friend of mine been to jail and he called his cousin to his cell phone.  People, its not something I made up, I REALLY SEEN IT HAPPEN, maybe not through verizon, but it is possible! You have to prepay your account, not with verizon!

This company must be accepting the charges and forwarding the calls to your VZW phone. Even if that's possible, VZW Customer Service won't know about this or provide support for a third party company.

There are independant companies that provide a service to allow collect calls to cell phones. You can google collect 2 cell, TTI for their contact information
