That's great I have to limit my calls to about 2 per week, but I noticed he can call any day. Maybe when he gets his job the hours will be different? I know he really wants to get a job asap. He has his GED and isn't liking the GED class he is forced into right now. Hopefully his GED gets verified soon.

I'm confused about the status thing... I think he said he was on A -- is that the most restrictive? I think coming from the SHU is why he has restrictions for the first year.

I can only tell you my experience as things seem to vary person to person. My friend is not working yet but has a GED class in the afternoon so... early calls are after yard at about 10:30 AM and afternoon calls are after class at about 3:30 PM.

Got it. I missed a call and just wanted to get a better idea. Does it depend on the yard they're located in? My friend is in D.

Hello everyone....we are still fairly new to CEN. I hardly ever get to receive phone calls from my husband. It's maybe 1 every 2 to 2 1/2 weeks. And sometimes when we get that it's never for a full 15 because the officer has him get off phone. Does anyone else experience this? He even has a job.... He has complained in those short conversations telling me about how he signs up for phone but never gets to make the call. I'm getting frustrated...

You know I usually receive a phone from my husband during the week at least 3 times a week. But, he has not called at all this week. Not sure why, he is on D yard has anyone had calls from that yard this past week? I hope maybe I get a reply but won't hold my breath, there doesn't seem to be a lot of action here.

I know when my hub was inside, sometimes they were not allowed to call as the phone were located outside. If it was foggy they were not allowed outside.
Or the phones could be broken (also happened often)
Stinks thats for sure.

They were doing training all last week and for the most part were not running program. For the person whose husband just got there, when they arrive they are on orientation status and they can't use the phone. Once they are classified, if they are not A1A (working or going to school) they get one phone call per month.

I don't know anything about D yard, sorry My husband is on B yard which is level 4 GP. D yard is a SNY yard so it's possible the programming could be different.

My husband usually calls me during the day, right now since he is not working/programming he can call at least a couple time during the week but not at night or the weekends, so he says.He's been there now for a couple of months. As far as I know their phones are inside and them doing training makes sense too!! We'll see all I can do is wait.
