Default Are tablets coming to more IL prisons?

My pal at Dixon says they've been saying for a while they're gonna start selling tablets, but they never do. Last letter from earlier this month said they're going to start selling them. Any word on this from anyone else?

I spoke with someone who works at Dixon and they said IL is rolling out the tablets state wide in 4 sections over the next few months.

They do. My MWI ordered his last week and gets in the 17th I think.

Do messages sent/received to tablets take less time?

Yes, they still get reviewed, but definitely shorter time than mail. My LO doesn’t have one cus he’ll be out too soon to make it worth it. I’ll ask if anyone is using them yet and how they’ll work there

It’s too bad they don’t let them give it to someone when they get released. Last year when Jesse got released he gave his nice gym shoes to sobeobe that didn’t have any, and cane out in his shower sandals lol and it was a big issue he had to say he lost them haha.

I meant to compare tablets to kiosks - my bad!


I know for the kiosks (at least at Dixon) there's one woman (I think) who reviews the emails before they're sent/received. I wonder if email sent/received to tablets will go through quicker. I can't imagine they'd put all that work on that one lady LOL - could you imagine how the daily sent/rec'd is going to increase throughout the whole prison??? lord...
