Tried to set an account so that my man is able to call me. I live overseas. Signed in at that Connect Network homepage, but when it comes to choose the facility, PBSP is not listed. How did you do that?

Default Pelican Bay Phone Calls!!

Hi everyone!!

I was wondering if any of you guys can verify this or me: "inmates at Pelican Bay State Prison are only allowed one phone call per month" is this true??? Somebody told me inmates at PBSP have to get their name on a "call list" where they set a date and time to place one phone call a month.

I received three consecutive phone calls today from PBSP while the man was in day room...so is the one phone call a month thing not true??

Thanks for any info!

No that is not true. My LO does not call that many times a day but he at least calls 4 to 5 times a week around the same time if the day.

No that is not true. My LO doesn't get that many calls in one day but he usually calls 4-5 times a week. It is usually around the same time each day he calls.

Thank you for your response I hve an account with gtl and thankfully I was able to answer the phone calls, but I was just confused with why I was allowed three consecutive phone calls if they are only allowed one a month. Do you know why they have the once a month rule? Is it only for inmates who are not working?
Thank you!!

Thank you for your response!! Does your LO work? Maybe the inmates that do not have a job are only allowed one phone call a month, but the ones that do work are allowed more? Or maybe take courses or involved in programs?

Thank you
