Default Can phone calls be made during the diagnostics stage?

Does anyone know if phone calls can be made during the diagnostics stage?

No, I'm pretty sure diagnostics can't make calls. Hang in there.

Turns out they can! We had some great letter writing sessions while we waited on gdoc to approve me. Took about 2 weeks. Hope this info helps someone in the future.

That's good to know. I don't mind being proven wrong on important things like that.

When my son was at Jackson we did get a couple of calls. It was after the diagnostic testing was done. He was there about 2 months before being transferred. They said visits were allowed after they had been there 60 days but most are gone by then.

Yes, I'm patiently awaiting for said visits. Been 3 months since I've held her and a month since I've seen her (behind county glass). I know that is a drop in the bucket for some of you, but I really hope and need to see her soon! Soon is probably another month away.

I know your reply was from a year ago but...did he get to call you back soon after? My bf is at Jackson and it's been 2 weeks since he got there...he tried calling me Sunday night and I was trying to hurry and set up the account but by the time I was done he didn't call again. I thought he wasn't allowed to use a phone while he was there. He hasn't tried calling again...hoping he will <3

He should be able to call once he's finished with all the testing they do. I know there are a lot of people & not many phones so it might be hard to get to one. Hope you hear from him soon. Writing is a good idea too.

He called! He said he's in a big dorm with a lot of other guys and he's on a work detail and he also gets access to jpay kiosk to check his books balance and possibly read email we send him. Haven't confirmed that yet. But the fact we got to talk to him was amazing!
