No calls can be made until he has done the voice recognition recording. That could occur early or it could be a month or so down the road. Others have reported that even with an early recording, it was not until intake was done that a call could be placed to a registered number.

Until he has been received and you have his TDCJ number, you cannot even begin to register YOUR phone number. You will have to have registered and been approved before a call can be successfully placed.

It took about 3 weeks for my hubby to finally call. Everything Centex said is right. After you get his TDC number set up your phone. I found reading all the handbooks for the family and offender for TDC online pretty helpful. Even in reception he can still get letters and your Jpays. That way you can keep him company until the phones get sorted out
