No. Neither this jail nor any other jail allows you to directly phone an inmate.
Most jails only allow you to leave a message for an inmate in case of a serious emergency such as a death in the family.
Other than for a family emergency, the only way to communicate with an inmate is by them phoning you, leaving you an email message using the jail's secure (and closely monitored) electronic message system, mail or during a visit.
Many jails are now contracting with a third party service (for a fee) which allows you to leave a recorded phone message for an inmate.
To see if the Anne Arundel County Detention Center has this service, go here or call 410-222-7374.
This jail contracts with ICSolutions for inmate phone calls to friends and family.
