Because he may have been a courtesy call, but now needs to wait until they set up an account for him.

Yes, the intake process is not always a fast one. He will have very little time available to him. Getting the phone set up for him is part of the intake process. It may take several days before he has the ability to call you. Typically, intake involves 23 hours in cell, and 1 hour out of cell during which he has to eat, shower, do clothing exchange etc.

His time is no longer his own, and he has no choice about when/if he can call you. I suggest writing him as often as you can while he's in intake - both for his sake and for yours. It's a terrifying and extremely boring process, going through intake. Especially if he's never done it before.

He will call when he can, but he will only have maybe 5 minutes tops to speak with you. After he moves to his "home institution", he'll be able to talk longer.

Please don't read too much into his lack of calling. My dad was only able to call twice during the 6 weeks he was in intake, both calls were under 2 minutes.

Hang in there, you are so very close to being past the worst of it all.

I'm glad I found your answer. My guy has been there for one week today and I haven't heard anything at all.

If you don't mind me asking, what happened? I have had my guy's account for phone calls on a PIN for a week and have not heard anything. Not even a letter. I'm starting to worry. I have written him 3 times to let him know he has money on the connectnetwork for phones and Jpay for everything else...
