"Bumping" this, I guess, because I have a LO on D and no calls and no mail to explain.

Anyone have information about calls? Or are you getting calls?

Default I missed our first call

I thought the number to accept the call is 5 and so I pressed this digit. However, it went on to explain the rates. I immediately hung up because I didn't want to waste my minutes on that and didn't need to hear about rates anyway. I thought he would hang up and immediately try again. Needless to say, he didn't.

What number do I press to accept a call?

I thought they had 15 minutes and expected him to call right back. Was he not allowed to do that?

Thanks in advance.

It is 5 you are supposed to press. Sometimes it doesn't work. It's incredibly frustrating. We have it happen to us all of the time.

They do have 15 minute slots to call and they are allowed to call as many numbers as they like during that 15 mins. It may be that he thought you weren't able to answer and didn't try again.

I'm so sorry. I know how aggravating this can be. You didn't do anything wrong, it's GTL.

Very sorry to hear that. And Iím not sure of the CA call procedures. That said, sometimes there are time limits between calls, so heíll probably call again when schedule allows. Itís important to listen carefully to the message because one of the options will be to BLOCK contact - and that can take some time to reverse if itís mistakenly chosen. Best of luck and happy holidays!

There can be slight differences in each CDCR facility, but most sign up for 15 min spots. If the phone is "open" and no one is using that time, some COs will allow inmates to use it even if they are not signed up. Phone spots can be traded, shared, had back to back, depending on the facility.

Thank you, I feel better knowing it wasn't my fault, but still so disappointed.

Thank you for your quick reply. Accidentally blocking sounds like a nightmare.
