Tablets available for Oshkosh
 
Today is the first day you can order the tablets. Inmates were allowed to order them a couple of weeks ago. Thankfully my husband works at BSI and only has 10% taken out so he purchased it himself.

Not sure what other facilities have them.

Thank You so much , I wish I would have looked on here sooner. I was checking the site to order it for my son daily and never found it listed and didn't realize it was under a difference program. I had him under the property package program and never looked for MP4 Media program. They have to make things difficult don't they....I just figured it would be listed under "Electronics". He'll be happy to hear I got it ordered for him. He didn't want to use the money he has so I was ordering it for him. Has you husband received his yet? Just curious how long this place takes to send things out. I've ordered for him from Marcus and union supply but not here before.

He hasn't yet and it only became avaliable for us to buy I think on the 6th.

It is much better if you buy anyways. The only reason I didn't is because he is making enough to cover everything and my Sister in law puts money on his books.If they were taking 50% I would have purchased it.

Yes my son said too it was probably better for me to order it. He figured it would take a few weeks for anyones orders to go out from there anyway. The site doesn't let you check to see if it has been sent either. :( the money was taken out of checking account as of Monday already tho !!

My husband has seen one. I guess some people got theirs. There was an issue with my husband's order form with CO signatures so he is a couple of days behind.

They only have hook up to the Kiosk once a month and the emails are sent over a wifi.

They are the size of a Samsung note. Not big.

53000 books available for free. My husband is a reader. Before he got a job inside he was reading a book a day.

Can they use the tablets to message loved ones outside the prison

I think this means they can send emails outside the prison, though I'm sure they'll be read and recorded and saved, so you'll want to treat it just like a regular letter in terms of the content of the email.

Well my fiancée got his tablet but he is kinda electronic illiterate and still has not figured it out. Is there a informational website that I can go on to see what he has access to at Oshkosh correctional? Any help would be appreciated. I am wondering if I can send him pictures?

I found this, but it doesn't mention tablets: https://doc.wi.gov/Documents/Offende...teHandbook.pdf

I haven't been able to find anything about how tablets work. He should be able to find another inmate who can teach him, though. That's how my friends who are not technologically inclined learned.
