HM Prison and Scottish Prison BT Phonecards

These British Telecom (BT) telephone cards were cards used within UK Prisons - HM Prisons in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and Scottish Prison Service (SPS) prisons in Scotland. Early prison Phonecards were general public released cards, later telephone cards were specially encoded for use only with cardphones in UK prisons. This was to prevent Phonecards from being smuggled into prisons and traded between inmates as currency and at inflated prices.
