It’s saying on the DOC website that the tablets are down and GTL are working to resolve the problem. Just wish they would say how long it will take ��

The tablets are down across the whole state. No mention of when Gtl will get them fixed. Let’s hope there is some compensation for the games and music inmates have purchased and can’t use.

I just saw a news article that the tablets had been confiscated for security issues. They plan to give them back but not sure when that will be.

There is no plan to give the tablets back. Per DOC, they are looking for alternate vendors. This would be the third vendor!

I was under the impression they needed to upgrade the security on the tablets before they gave them back. I wasn’t aware they were looking for a new vendor contract.

That was originally the story until last week when they confiscated them all. If you contact GTL they will tell you there was a security breach within doc.

Lets hope they sort this out soon and inmates and us are compensated for the lost message credits music and games we have paid for.

Not holding my breath. IF they locate another vendor dumb enough to deal with CDOC, it will be the third one.

My lo told me last night he had heard that some places had been given new tablets. Does anyone know anything about new tablets being handed out or is it prison gossip as I suspect?

I think it may just be a rumour ,so hoping the tablets are back soon.

Sounds like you are going through a tough time. This is a tough life. How you deal with it is on you. By the way, i have been doing this a very long time and have a lot of friends and also lead a very busy life. Not sure who is telling you to sit at home with no life.

As for the tablets, the offenders are not getting them back.

Who in the world said that to you?? They are out of their ever-love'n mind! Sitting home alone and bored is the worst thing you can do for yourself & to yourself. Get a hobby, go for a walk, go to lunch with friends/family, work, go back to school....keep busy! I've recently joined a gymn....$10 a month to go 24/7, $23 a month w/all the perks.

I can't answer about the tablets, but I can welcome you to PTO and encourage you to take care of yourself....you're important in all this too

OK I really don't think the tablets are coming back.

I received a $2 check from Telmate, which turns out to be the parent company of GTL.

I went into my ConnectNetwork account, and the section that says "messages" has been closed.

I had 8 message credits on my account, which amounts to $2.

Did they leave the messages? Or take them down. It is still up for me. I haven't received a refund, yet.

Thank you Nancy I work full-time and Im a mother to 3 boys 22, and 18 and my youngest is going to be 16. My Husband got 6yrs and was on parole when he caught a new charge he had just gotten out in 2016 from a 12yr sentence. So this time he has no choice but to get his crap together I see this state just locke's people up instead of getting them help. Its very hard at times loving an addict he has put me through alot but I love him and stand by his side but this is it the last time as Im 46 and its alot to deal with and all I ever hear is you choose it well no one knows what they would do until they are walking in your shoes and just cause they got locked up doesn't make them bad people they just need help. I have no real friends as they have walked away and shown there true colors thats why Im on here for people who are in the same boat and that I can talk to. thank you for the warm welcome as well ..

Thank you for the reply the person who said that I thought was my friend but as I have learned I don't really have any here and it makes me very sad the people I thought were there for me walked way when I needed them. I work full-time and have 3 boys. I try to get out as much as I can on my days off I go visit my Husband once a week. I'm not from here so don't really know to many people and I thought that the people I worked with were more friends then just coworkers but I see I was very wrong with that. Thats why Im on here in hopes of meeting some great people who full understand what I'm dealing with thank you for they reply again .

My old messages are still on the app but they have all gone on the computer.My loved one said he has been given a refund for the message credits he had on his account. Not sure about the music and games he purchased and then could not access.
