If it is their first bop prison to be activated on the inmate telephone system, ITS, (some inmates are added to the system while in a federal detention center) then a few things have to happen before he can call you, they usually take a week or less, but longer delays have happened. First he has to meet with his counselor to provide a list of every phone number he will be allowed to call. After the counselor approves the list and inputs it into the local ITS computer, he still must wait for his 9 digit phone pin # to arrive in the mail.

If he was previously able to make ITS calls, his pin number will remain the same, but the counselor still has to import his phone list to the new prison.
