Oh...here in michigan they normally have to add money to buy stamps on their end. But today when I sent my husband a message there was a send a reply stamp option back on there so I think that's the easiest way to do it. Check when you leave a message if you have that option. If not he will have to purchase them through the kiosk

You can add money for phone messages and music through GTL.

The more you use messenger, you will see that the time to receive messages will vary depending on the content

The people in the mail room have to approve your jpay. Normally no you won't get any on the weekends. I have which is weird and sometimes I get them ten minutes after my husband sends them at midnight. They tried to tell me once that it wasn't possible until I brought my phone in to show them one day. They were shocked. Anyway it's hit or miss when you get them. But most of the time it's durring business days.

This is GTL not JPay (Colorado has that as well). I went to a meeting with DOC and they explained the process. Messages get electronically scanned by GTL. If there are "Keywords" identified, the messages get forwarded to the facility for review. Mailroom staff are supposed to review them within 24 hours. Basically, the shorter the message the sooner it will get to him. I sent my husband a call me message and he received it within 30 minutes. My daughter sent him a 2000 character message on Wednesday and he got it on Friday also, just like phone calls be aware that the messages are monitored.

You will receive messages on weekends however just depending on the content, I usually don't receive them until Monday.
