Default GTL: When there's no money on the phone, can he hear me?

Hi,
I ran out of money on the phone tonight, (GTL) and my guy was trying to call. the autopromt was going and I pressed 5 but no money was on to connect the call...it was the last minute before the phone shut off for the night and I was freaking about a situation and was panicking, and I thought I heard his voice....Could he hear me? He'll be worried even if he couldn't, because he couldn't get in touch with me, but I'm more upset that he thinks something is terribly wrong if he did hear me. Any thoughts?

No, they can't hear us but I do believe they hear the message that there is a low balance, so he likely knows there was no money on the phone.

I used to try to hit 5 too early before the message played through and he could hear what I was doing and told I had to wait until the prompt. Tonight, I was crying out "baby, baby....something has happened" and maybe my imagination but I thought I heard his voice for a brief second. He called again and think he was trying another way to get through, but then the phones shut off for the night. I just feel so awful that he has to sit there all night worried, and I want him to know I am ok

I thought (reading your other thread) you have a no-contact in place?

They definitely hear the low balance/no funds message so he knows why you couldn't connect. Its a horrible feeling.

No, the judge did not issue a no contact. In fact, for the first DV 2, the judge told him to remain on his residence (my house) until the court date.
