At least your receiving something dear, I'd wish I was receiving something. Yes! Mail takes forever for them to get, he always mention how long it takes for him to receive my letter(s). If it wasn't for the phone calls, I would think he wasn't getting my letters at all. But he lets me know that he's getting them, even though he gets them late! I still write to him and let him know somewhere in my letter, that I didn't receive his letter(s). It sucks to not receive his letters, but I am glad he's receiving mines. I know how much it means to him to receive letters from me. I'm praying that you continue to receive letters from your pen pal.

I understand from here that it is a test, and only on C yard, how is the mailroom (and all the others who read our mail) going to cope with an influx of email? My mail is sometimes more than a month behind!!! Luckily we have the connect network phone now... but that is also just when they have time to get the men to the phones.

I hope that Jpay updates its website, there is no correct information about this, and they are not responding to my emails about it.

I often use Letterquick, because I know the owner has worked so hard to get that established in California, with very little cooperation from CDCr. It is the best option writing from overseas.

D-Yard has access to emails (Jpay) hopefully, they'll have access to some of the other Jpay options soon enough!

Softcover preferred. You can have it sent via a bookstore (Barnes & Noble, for example) or Amazon. If you go with Amazon, make sure you're buying it from Amazon themselves and not through a third-party. Check the Seller Information. It should have the Amazon logo. There was an issue with that this past summer that prompted CDCR HQ to temporarily ban all deliveries from Amazon.

One-way only. Inbound. There are no kiosks in D-Facility or any other facility at KVSP to the best of my knowledge. Only C-Facility has the full JPay email experience available.

C yard does have kiosks and inmates can have tablets . They have 2 way email messaging snap and send photos and 30 second videos. Let’s hope all the other yards get the same soon.

A-Facility inmates can only respond with a normal ol' paper-in-an-envelope letter. They do not have access to the kiosks and tablets that C-Facility has. Same goes for B, D and M Facilities. The inmate receives a paper printout of the email in the regular mail bag. The printout is generated from the Mailroom. Since the Mailroom was closed over the long Thanksgiving Day weekend, no email printouts went out Wednesday thru Sunday.

According to my friend C Yard inmates will soon be getting jpay free tablets. Not sure when.

You can send cards , but the cards cannot have any glitter , stickers, ribbons, foil or sequins etc. It can only be a basic card. I have bought photo cards before as they seem to get through ok.
