How can people in the U.S. prison system communicate with the outside world? I understand that this varies depending on the type of prison, and possibly the state, but I have found no information.

I have no experience with the U.S. penitentiary system, but I understand that prisoners are allowed to write letters. Do they have to pay for postage? Are prisoners allowed to make phone calls? At what frequency? Are there any prisons allowing emails?
Similarly, what ways are available for the outside world to contact prisoners?
Any information or links regarding prisoners' means of communication with the outside world is appreciated.
