There is also a USP Florence in Colorado. I am happy to hear jpay tablets may come to Arizona prisons messaging is long overdue there.

Oh I'm sorry I didn't know that , I think it sounds promising he said he can hear them banging about working on things and the guards have said it's for the wifi , so fingers crossed there will be some official new soon

They have talked about tablets for a long time they had a meeting w inmates on one yard about them at Tucson awhile back but nothing came of it at the time they just said it was coming and JPay is set up for stuff like that so it would make sense - I still don’t think they would do away w face to face visits as some think I just think they would use it as a way to bring in more money to doc bc they r always trying to do that on top of face to face visits - and as a way to alleviate some overcrowding at visits bc some would not come then...

As part of integration into IHP yards they have been talking about tablets but thus far nothing has come from it. If/When it does happen it won't be at central for quite some time as they will be one of the last yards to integrate.

I emailed JPay about a month ago and asked about it because I heard the rumor as well and they told me they are not offering the service any time soon
