Default Telephone calls??

I know that calls from our loved ones are few and far between but if you have received a call was it on a weekday or weekend? In the evening? Thanks.

My 3 calls were always during the week. If I remember correctly, all of them were later in the evening, like after 6:30 p.m.

I got one during the day, but that could have just been the emergency phone call when our son was born. But my husband said that most other people only get theirs on the weekends after 6:30p.m. at Bartlett.

cora, right now theyre only allowed one 5-minute call every 90 days, with good behavior and warden's ok. that's probably why you havent heard from your grandson.

payphones were approved by the state last august, but the contract has not been signed due to some challenges, so i cant tell you with any certainty when they will be installed. when that happens, though, your grandson will be able to call collect 15minuts at a time up to 2 hours a month.

so right now...its pretty much only letters..im sorry

"Most" units- -always a exception, will make calls during the week, after chow is over, so about 6:30- -7:00PM they start and end about 8:30, before count. Depends on how many inmates are lined up to use the phones.
Right now, inmates are allowed one call every ninety days- -if they have stayed out of trouble. 5 minutes and a officer is listening at all times, except during emergency calls, then rank will be listening (at some units).
Being short handed at several units has changed some calls, but they are trying to keep these up.
Hope this helps a little.
Be safe.

From what I can tell, Allred's calls have always been in the evening. Some of the people there have also gone the extra, as far as to respect my work schedule when my husband put the I-60s in for his calls (he is in Seg). So most of mine have been on weekends but always in the evening.
