Default Approval for phone calls at Lewis-Stiner

How long does it typically take to get approval for phone calls at Lewis-Stiner, it's already been about 31 days. I know it said it can take up to 60. Just curious to find out what the average is, if anyone might know. I'm new to all of this but have used this site for a lot of great resources. Thank you

Good morning,
I mailed my application out on 1/5, they started processing it on 1/12, it was approved on 2/13, and it was verified on 3/15 with the first call on 3/16. We're in Lewis too.
I didn't know they verified the number so when I found out we were approved on 2/13 I thought the calls could start lol. So much to learn....Just make sure that if you get a call from a private number, you answer. If they call you three times without success, you have to reapply.
Good luck!

I'm going on almost 2 months just for the background check process at Lewis - it's taking forever - I can't believe it can take another month to verify the number I didn't know that I will be so upset if it takes 3 months for calls and visits still waiting just to hear that it passed background they sure take their time over there

Maybe it depends on the unit as well, I don't know. Call visitation maybe to find out what's going on?

Thank you for replying!! I thought once you were approved you can start receiving calls, so that's good to know. I haven't recieved a call yet to get verified but have my phone attached at the hip lol

I have another quick question in regards to the phone. I'm under my mothers family plan and have my own number. Does the phone need to be under my name in order to be verified? Or can I leave it as it is?

As far as I know, you can leave it as it is. Heck, you can use a prepaid. They just wanna make sure that the number belongs to you and nobody else.

Yeah, as long as they get to speak with you it is fine. It's just a quick "Is this (insert name)? You have requested to receive phone calls from inmate blah blah. Ok... That's great..." And that's pretty much it! Haha!
