Is your hubby incarcerated in IL? If so, our prisons don't allow video visiting. Some county jails do, but none of our prisons. Sorry!

The link below has the list of county jails that offer video visits along with hours of visiting, length and price. Just sign up through Securus to get the video visit option going. And as far as using tablets, I've no idea.

Crazy, right?! I was looking at other states and Alabama, Arizona and California only charge $5 for 20 minutes. Makes no sense.

You just GOTTA love our state lol! It'd come in handy if the weather was gonna be bad for a while or if you can't drive or something, but yeah it's pretty darn expensive!
