Default SHU: phone call on the 30th day or any day after?

My husband has been in the SHU now for 30 days. He wrote and told me he would be able to call every 30 but havenít got a call yet. Does anyone know do they get a phone call on the 30th day or any day after?
Also does anyone have a loved one who was sent to the SHU for a sharp toothbrush that was found in cell? How long might he be in there?
I feel as if Iím going crazy not knowing what is going on.... 😔

There is a portable phone that is taken around to the people in the Shu. Its when the guards feel like doing it really.

This will be up to the disiplinary counsel on how long and any other charges or infraction will come into play. Hope it's not a long stretch for him.

Inmates generally get phone calls BEFORE day 30. Right before. Does he have money on his account to make calls? Have you gotten any missed calls?

A sharpened toothbrush is considered a weapon and will be treated as such.

Yes, there is money on the account. No missed calls. He has still not had a meeting regarding the situation according to his last letter. He has no idea what is going on. I donít know if calling would make it any better, but I donít understand why nothing has happened.

If he is in the SHU for an open ended "investigation", he won't know what is happening unless the SIS agent folks decide to tell him. If he was there as punishment after a disciplinary hearing, he would know how long he will stay.

He won't need money to call you, he will be brought the SHU phone on wheels. One call every 30 days, but the timing is totally up to the COs.

Where I work phone calls are granted usually right before the 30 day mark. Then every 30 days after that.
